Make a holiday villa in Karavados your home away from home

The Ionian island of Kefalonia offers the nature lover more than they can sink their teeth into. It boasts picturesque beaches fringed by towering cliffs and boasting a host of geological curiosities as well as forested landscapes dotted with mountains. The place is also rich in history having been home to the legendary King Odysseus. Kavarados, a tranquil corner of this magnificent island that sits close to the coastline is favoured by holidaymakers as a base from which to explore Cefalonia, as the Italians call it, and other Ionian islands. And rightly so as they will find a lovely mix of holiday rentals in Karavados to suit their needs. Those travelling as a family will want to book the spacious villas there not least because of the stunning seaside views they command. Most of these Karavados holiday villas have swimming pools among a host of other great facilities.

Things to do

-Beaches: Bordered by amazingly clear turquoise waters and carpeted in soft, golden sands, the Kefalonia coastline is simply incomparable. Pretty enough to have been used as the set for a number of film productions is the Antisamos Beach. This is a stretch of white, pebbly shoreline with such clear waters you can see little fish swimming underneath. It provides everything a sun-starved holidaymaker needs from free parasols and loungers to a selection of bars and eateries.

-Food and drink: Karavados holiday home residents on promenades along Kefalonia’s pristine coastline will find incredible restaurants and bars on the way. They can seek refreshment at the Akri Seaside Bar if they want a place to shelter from the summer sun while sipping chilled cocktails and gazing idly into the endless waters of the Ionian Sea. For an unforgettable taste of lamb prepared in traditional Greek method and served in friendly surroundings one can pop into To Perasma.

-Boat trips: Sailing around the Ionian islands surveying the incredible geological features that punctuate its coastline is one of the delights those booked into Karavados holiday villas can look forward to. There are a number of boat rentals available along the Kefalonia coastline from which tourists can hire vessels to go exploring the secluded beaches, hidden caves and imposing cliffs. The stunning Drogarati Caves and the Koutavos Lagoon are among the attractions they’ll encounter.

-Hiking: Those who would like to hike through the rugged mountainous landscape of Kefalonia will probably want to schedule their visit for autumn or late spring as the heat during summer can be quite oppressive. Along the way hikers will be exposed to the island’s amazing range of flora and fauna, which includes over 200 bird species. When they climb up Mount Ainos they’ll be treated to breathtaking panoramas stretching all the way to the endless blue of the Ionian.

-Historical monuments: History buffs will also find something worth photographing or putting down in their journals in Kefalonia. The Evangelistria Church is one of them and the ancient structures in Argostoli, which include a lighthouse and a Venetian castle, are others. They can top off on visits to these sites with a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Argostoli. Exhibits here include artefacts collected from the prehistoric and Roman eras.

Weather in Kavarados

Most of the tourists looking to spend time in Kavarados holiday homes go there during the usual holiday months between June and August. At this time of year sunshine is plentiful and rainfall is scarce. Temperatures average between 26 and 28°C which is not to say that there are no days when temperatures soar beyond the 30°C mark. Savvy travellers will land in Kafelonia in September as temperatures are slightly cooler then, though still averaging in the twenties. There are also less tourists hanging about. In winter temperatures average between 15 and 17°C.

                                                      We spent 10 days at Villa Petra in July 2016 and I have to say that we had the most fabulous relaxing holiday we have had in years. Communications with the owners prior to our vist were first class and directions to the villa were easy to follow. We used the hire car company recommended by the owners and again received a first class service.On arrival at the villa we were blown away by the mesmerising view of the mountains behind.The villa itself had everything that you could possibly wish for and was meticulously clean. The kitchen area is large and well stocked with everything that you would wish to use while on holiday. The lounge area is very comfortable and leads out on to a gorgeous patio area with dining table and chairs. A great area if you need to get out of the sun for a while and even better when it's dark and you get to see the amazing stars light up the sky. If you're a keen photographer pack your tripod you won't be disappointed. The pool is just perfect for cooling down and in the afternoon you get a lovely cooling light breeze which makes laying out in the heat that much more bearable. We didn't see a cloud from the moment we left Gatwick until we returned to the UK.The air conditioning in the bedrooms were a godsend and we found the bed really comfy. The Villa is perfectly situated for getting around the rest of the island. The longest journey was to Fiskardo which takes about an hour and a half. We stopped at Myrtos Beach (breathtaking) and Assos (enchanting) en route to break up the journey. All three are well worth a visit. We hired a boat in Fiskardo and went off in search of hidden coves. We had such a fun time and saw some fabulous beaches that are probably not accessible by road. We also loved Messina Lakes and Agia Efermia and Porus is a great place to stop and have lunch. The views on offer everywhere you go will blow your breath away. The villa and pool were cleaned twice during our stay and all was done to the highest standard. Wifi signal was great throughout our stay and puts the uk to shame. I really cannot recommend this Villa highly enough. We have had a wonderful relaxing holiday, in fact everything a holiday should be. Finally a word of warning, if you want to party the night away to loud music and bright lights then this is definitely not the place for you. If however you want peace, privacy, relaxation and your home from home comforts then Villa Petra ticks every single box. We loved it.

                                                      Amazing family holiday

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This was our second stay at Villa Kallisto and we were not disappointed! Myself, partner and our 2 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed a lovely week late September. The villa was again beautifully clean, well equipped and the weather was amazing. We visited last year in May and enjoyed the villa and the island so much that we decided to come back in September. The weather was even better than in May and our daughter loved the pool that much we had trouble getting her out!! It was really nice to find that Argostoli had a new addition at the lagoon - pedal car boats!! These were great and so much fun with our daughter. We also stumbled across a children's fun fair which had so many rides and activities for toddlers - our daughter had such a fun time - highly recommend if you have a little one! The grounds and views at Villa Kallisto are beautiful and you can tell that the owners Eileen and Mike take a lot of pride in their wonderful home - so thank you again to them both for sharing this with us. We would highly recommend the Villa and are even thinking of booking for a third time next year. Thank you again to you both from the Marsh family.

                                                      LOVELY PEACEFUL VILLA

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      Agios Thomas Villa is set in the peaceful village of Karavados.I would recommend hiring a car for your stay so as to explore the fantastic villages and sandy coves that are in easy travel distance from the villa. There was a great welcome pack on arrival and the villa is of the highest order, very clean and in a great location looking down toward the sea. The fact it has Wi-Fi is a bonus. The couple who look after the villa are only a phone call away if needed and are very knowlegable about the island. There are two good supermarkets on the way to Argostali (which is well worth a visit ). Overall we had a great 2 weeks and would recommend the villa to anyone
