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.

In winter temperatures average between 15 and 17°C.

Fantastic property for a week of relaxing- but be out on time.

4 of 5
We loved our time at villa- the decor is beautiful, the beds incredibly comfortable and the pool shallow enough to be perfect for the whole family. We really appreciated the extra touches- the cot for our baby, the welcome hamper,and the speed at which Phivos responded when we needed more gas for the BBQ. It is the perfect place for serious R&R but you will 100% need a car here if you want to do any exploring- there is lots of beautiful sites to explore within a few miles of the property, but nothing is within comfortable walking distance. The only slight niggle we had was on our last day, as we were packing the car to leave the villa. It was five past ten in the morning and we received a phone call from local host Amanda telling us that "we should have been out by ten", something she had not stressed when we had seen her the previous day. Our flight time had been pushed back by Easyjet, we had a small baby to wrangle, and it was not a nice way to end what had been a relaxed trip. Had it been made clear that this was a super strict policy we would have of course ensured we were out on the dot, but we were running ten minutes late, not hours late and so it felt a bit heavy handed. Shame to have had the overall fantastic experience ended in this way, but it wouldn't prevent us returning. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Villa with Amazing Views

5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Eros for a week at the beginning of June, Hired a car at the airport and followed the directions to Villa Eros with no problems at all. On arrival the pool was just what we needed after a hot journey. A Car is a must as the villa is very secluded - but this is exactly what we wanted, privacy, peace and quiet - the views from every room in the villa, even the bathroom of the sea are simply fantastic as is the sunrise. We could not fault the very well appointed villa at all, would definitely reccommend to friends and family and would very much like to return All in all we had a five start holiday Thank you Katie!
