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.

The villa is excellent with everything you could possibly need, hair dryers, beach towels, adaptors, books, films etc. The pool area is fantastic with an array of seating and sun loungers and built-in barbecue. The location was great for exploring the island and had a large number of really good tavernas only a few minutes drive away. The proximity to the airport was great for arrival and departure and was not a problem. We definitely recommend this villa and would return for another holiday.

We were very impressed with the Villa, which is tastefully appointed and very well equipped. It is obvious that a great deal of thought and hard work has been involved in it’s creation. The Villa is light and airy with plenty of space. It is spotlessly clean. No expense has been spared on furnishings. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in, the air conditioning worked very well when required. Outside space is very generous with a lovely pool, separate shaded seating areas, and barbecue area. When lit at night the outside space is very impressive. The Villa is located near to the airport at the end of a single track road, it overlooks the main runway. This didn’t cause us any problems at all as there were only a few flights each day and they were all during daytime. In fact it was quite an interesting diversion. For fresh bread and other essentials there is a mini market within walking distance. A car is necessary to visit the large supermarkets and local areas. There are very good restaurants within a few minute’s drive, The large town of Argostoli is around 7km away. The owner, Joanne was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble to ensure that we had a good holiday. A visit to the family’s restaurant, Kiani Akti in Argostoli is highly recommended. We would not hesitate to recommend Forget Me Not.

Going with extended family, it was great that the villa provided so much space. The whole villa was spotlessly clean and having Rubina in every day to tidy around was a bonus and she was amazing. I am very fussy when choosing a villa and spend hours upon hours looking and checking each one. This is by far the best we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in many) The outside area was amazing, while the kids played in the pool the adults could enjoy the Jacuzzi with wonderful views out to sea. The BBQ was a great hit and we spent every evening using it. With such a lovely villa we did not feel the need to travel out. There are plenty of beaches to choose from you are spoiled and there are also many shops within driving distance. If we had any concerns the owner was answering immediately. The only thing I would say is the dishwasher could do with replacing! We would definitely stay again.
