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.

fantastic apartment in a great location everything we needed for a relaxing holiday

5 of 5
The apartment was clean and comfortable with loads of space and a comfy king size bed. Everything we needed for cooking. On arrival there was a welcome pack with a delicious bottle of wine and bread/homemade marmalade which we really appreciated as we arrived late at night. The best thing was how helpful Reggina was, recommending wine to buy, activities (I highly recommend hiring a yellow boat for the day to explore beaches you wouldn't get to see otherwise) and bars/restaurants to visit. Directions from the airport with the pictures were really useful. She even arranged for a chiropractor for my boyfriend when he put his back out!! Thanks Reggina :) The apartment is in a great location for exploring the Island and a short stroll into Sami for restaurants by the waterside (about 20 minutes). We fell in love with Kefalonia and we will definitely be back. Missing our sea view balcony already.
