Make a holiday villa in Minies your home away from home

Greece has become a popular destination with sun-seeking tourists thanks to places like Kefalonia, one of its Ionian Sea islands. This sun-drenched isle, apart from boasting a picturesque, cliff-laden coastline interspersed with stretches of sand and shingle beaches, has its share of delicious green landscapes ascending into mountains. A chance to partake of this diversity while discovering Greek culture is what tempts many a tourist into booking a holiday home in Minies and other settlements on Kefalonia. The countryside villas offered by HomeAway in this quiet, woody area overlooking the sea are the best form of holiday accommodation visitors can opt for to make their Ionian excursion a luxurious one. A number of these holiday homes in Minies are newly built and offer such facilities as beautiful green gardens and swimming pools. For their entertainment tourists will have DVD players and satellite/cable TV.

Things to do

-Beaches: You haven’t truly lived until you have spent hours spread-eagled on the sands of Myrtos or Antisamos beaches; some of the best spots along Kefalonia’s coastline. The former is really popular thanks to the stunning views it gives visitors and tends to get a bit crowded during the peak holiday season. Antisamos is so pretty it has provided the background for a number of films. On other beaches turtles can be spotted. There are more secluded beaches in Lixouri and Scala peninsulas for those keen to find peace of mind.

-Food and drink: As they enjoy their time in Minies holiday villas visitors will have a number of excellent tavernas from which to gorge themselves on tasty Greek delicacies. To Perasma has for years presented hungry holidaymakers with tasty Greek specialities helped down with heavenly cold beer. There are places where visitors can partake of fresh fish cooked to perfection and places where they can sample Kefalonia’s very own Robolla wine. Local cafes are a great place to interact with locals and find out about their current affairs.

-Flora and fauna: Kefalonia boasts a number of national parks where one can find abundant flora and fauna. As they walk, cycle or ride on horseback through trails on horseback they will encounter wildlife species such as eagles and wild ponies. In the course of their perambulations tourists will encounter the one of a kind Drogarati Caves from which stalactites and stalagmites jut. They will also come across the mysterious underground lake Melissani which was formed after an earthquake caused the earth to collapse.

-Boat rides: Equally as enjoyable as the nature trails on land are excursions by boat that skirt the Kefalonia coastline. Visitors can hire boats and yachts and even learn to sail and set sail around this and neighbouring Ionian Islands. During the trip they will get to relax on sundecks and soak up the rays as well as spot the odd dolphin in the water. Those willing can explore the Ionian waters by kayak, paddling along the shores at their own pace.

Weather in Minies

The weather in Minies, like the rest of Kefalonia, is mostly sunny throughout the year. Tourists begin arriving here from as early as May when temperatures average a pleasant 24°C and everything from air fares to meals at restaurants is cheaper. The bulk of Kefalonia’s visitors however arrive between June and August. This is the hottest time of the year when temperatures average between 28 and 31°C and rainfall is extremely rare. Holidaying in September is also a good idea as the weather is still warm and the summer crowds dispersed. November ushers in winter and the rainy season.

Travel to Minies:

The Cephalonia International Airport is the main gateway into this part of Greece and is just one mile or so away from Minies. Visitors can easily find flights there during the holiday months from most European cities. One could alternatively take a flight to Athens than make a one-hour hop into Kefalonia. Taxis are available near the arrivals to take holidaymakers to their holiday homes in Minies.

                          Our first visit to Kefalonia and we were not disappointed. A beautiful island and a wonderful villa. The villa is immaculate, well equipped and thoughtfully designed. Fantastic balconies to enjoy meals and take in the fabulous views, we particularly loved opening the doors in our bedroom in the morning listening to the sea on the rocks while we laid in bed. Our family enjoyed lazy days by the pool and days out exploring the island (car definitely recommended). Our hire car was waiting for us at the airport ready when we landed as all arranged through Ainos Travel (very helpful). The villa's location by the airport was a bonus and watching the planes was an added attraction and not intrusive. Thank you to the owners for making us feel so welcome and your generosity and Angela for your holiday tips. We enjoyed XI and Lourdes beach, Antisamos was great for snorkeling. We took the ferry from Argostoli over to Lixouri a few evenings and enjoyed eating in the squares. We had great food everywhere and the local Taverna's at Ammes are good and friendly. A wonderful holiday.

                          Amazing holidays

                          We are family with 2 chidren (10 and 13). We were not sure about the the site due nearby airpot (our biggest doubt - but you dont hear any airport, villa is about 1km from the airport and due to green area between there no sounds that could disturb you), but loved the pictures they are presented on these websites, so we decided to go there. Villa is exactly like on the picture, seems to be new and in a perfect condition. Everything works - aircondition, wifi, etc... Pool is quite big, clean and our children liked it more than sea...nearest beach is about 500m from the villa, beautiful small beach with absolutely clear water and this not the only one, there are about 4 beaches not far, but car is necessary. There are several restaurants in surrounding and if it is not enough, you can go to Lassi or Argostoli. Thalia - owner - is very friendly person and we can recommend her - there were no problems and she was very helpful. However we have been renting different villas in different greece islands, this villa is very good quality for very reasonble money. We can definitely recommend it.

                          Villa hits the spot in every way. Location ideal for seeing all parts of this beautiful Island. Ignore the proximity to Airport - low activity does not interfere with the enjoyment of the villa and its fine pool. Booking process simple and subsequent directions easy to follow. Followed owners tips for trips (including car rental) - disappointed with food at Kiana Restaurant (Stilts) and enjoyed our sunset experience at Koutoumis Paradise Restaurant locally, rather than the one suggested. Local beach fascinating as Turtles had laid eggs - we did not see them hatch but wish them well! Beach was clean and water safe plus the beer at the snack bar was good quality. Lassi - a very good source of eating establishments - but if you want fresh meat for the BBQ then use specialist shops or visit Carrefour where they have a selection neither AB or Lidl can match. Do not let the low cost of wines deter you - they are generally acceptable as is the house wine when eating out. Our party of 4 adults would definitely go again if we visit Kefalonia in the future.
