Make a holiday villa in Lakithra your home away from home

Kefalonia, or Cefalonia for those from Italy, is an Ionian Island that is favoured by adventure and leisure-seeking tourists for a number of reasons. First is its rugged, stunning coastline, essentially a series of cliffs dropping into the azure waters of the Ionian Sea. There are also caves and other interesting geological wonders tourists will discover during boat trips. Among the settlements on this, the largest of the Ionian Islands, is Lakithra, a small, slow-paced village that lies close to Argostoli Town. Choosing a holiday home in Lakithra as the base for their Ionian excursion will put visitors close to Kefalonia’s stunning beaches as well. HomeAway has a collection of luxurious villas in this locale which will cater to the needs of different tourists. Some of these Lakithra holiday villas are traditional mansions that have been restores and refurbished while others are new buildings with private pools.

Things to do

-Boat trips: Taking an organised boat tour of the Kefalonian coastline is an essential part of any visit to this corner of Greece. This is the only way some secluded beaches can be reached. Kefalonia’s unusual shape means its shoreline is littered with stunning bays and coves. There are tours offered in glass-bottomed boats, allowing tourists a glimpse into the underwater treasures of the sea.

-Beaches: Tourists here will have a variety of sandy and shingle beaches from which to soak up the plenteous sunshine and listen to the whisper of the incoming tide. One of the more popular of these is Myrtos Beach, found towards the west of Kefalonia. This picturesque beach is carpeted in white pebbles and is tailor-made for hours of sunbathing. For a bit more seclusion, holidaymakers may want to try Xi, south of the Lixouri Peninsula. They will find that they have miles of sandy beach practically all to themselves.

-Water sports: Adrenaline junkies will find a number of outdoor activities on which to expend their energy. For starters there are speed boats and jet skis for hire with which to zoom around the Kefalonia coastline. Kayaks are available for those who would rather paddle their way along the shoreline. At Fiscardo one will find diving centres that offer scuba diving expeditions.

-Inland treasures: Those staying in Lakithra holiday homes or any other area of Kefalonia will want to venture inland to explore its natural beauty. This island boasts a number of national parks in which is abundant flora and fauna. As they wander through dense pine forests they will come across such eagles, wild ponies and other animals. Looming in the distance will be Mt. Ainos, the highest point in Kefalonia and Greece’s third-highest mountain.

-Historical treasures: In Fiscardo tourists will discover the ruins of ancient Roman tombs and those who make their way to the town of Skala will find a Roman villa whose mosaic floors are quite well preserved. Kefalonia also boasts a number of monasteries, one of which holds the 400 year-old remains of the patron saint of Kefalonia. A castle dating back to 394 AD can be found a few kilometres south of the town of Argostoli.

Weather in Lakithra

The best time to book holiday homes in Lakithra is in June before the blinding summer heat of July and August arrives. At this time the temperatures average at around 26°C and one can also enjoy off-peak rates while avoiding summer crowds on the beaches. September is also ideal for holidaying as temperatures are just as conducive. Those who visit Kefalonia in the proper summer months should be ready to contend with 30 plus temperatures. With temperatures averaging at about 15°C, winters are far from unbearable though most of Lakithra’s rain falls at this time of year.

Travel to Lakithra

With seasonal flights and charters arriving from Manchester, London, Vienna and other parts of Europe being received at the Cephalonia International Airport, holidaymakers heading to Lakithra holiday homes will want to book a flight there. This airport is less than a mile away from Lakithra and arriving travellers can simply take a taxi to their places of accommodation.

                                                                                                    We stayed at Villa Lito for two months in the autumn (October to December) and I can't quite put into words how magical our experience was. From the impeccable interiors to the sublime sea and mountain views, this villa is simply breathtaking and without a doubt the most exquisite place to stay on Kefalonia. The owners are incredibly hospitable and responded to our messages very promptly; although we did not meet in person, we felt very looked after and they were so keen to make sure our stay was seamless. The villa itself is just gorgeous, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs which are tastefully decorated, and on the ground floor the TV room, living area and dining area provide plenty of space for relaxation. Everything has been carefully thought out, and the elegant furnishings make you feel like you're staying in the lap of luxury while also right at home. We came to Kefalonia to work remotely for a couple of months, and we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful property. The inviting terrace was well appointed and meant we could work al fresco while admiring the views towards the sea, or the lights of Agia Effimia twinkling at night. The whole feel was incredibly soothing, with lush gardens beyond the pool and an outdoor dining area offering yet another shady spot for us to work; and the outdoor kitchen was a special touch that we weren't expecting! The location is also a real highlight, as the villa is discreetly tucked away yet it's just a short 5-minute drive to the shops and restaurants at Agia Effimia in one direction, and in the other the legendary Myrtos Beach with its brilliant blue seas. We highly recommend Cafe Giorgos whose staff are very friendly and the food is wonderfully fresh; turn left at the top of the road when you're coming from the beach. Other places not to miss which aren't far from the villa are Assos (by boyfriend proposed to me here!), Sami, Drogarati Cave, Melissani Lake and the beach at Antisamos. This whole area really showcases the best of the island! Overall, Phivos and Lito went above and beyond to make our stay perfect, and helped us so much even long after we had returned to the UK (we had a fleeting weekend visit back to the villa in January, in the snow!). It's this care and attention to detail that makes the whole experience unrivalled. Without a doubt we'll be coming back to this magical place.

We loved the infinity pool and being able to relax on the patio areas around the villa. The villa and gardens have been finished to a very high standard - the owners had thought of everything to make this an ideal holiday spot.
