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.

                          A fantastic accomodation!

                          5 of 5
                          We were 5 at the villa for ten days in August. All went well. The villa is spacious, well furnitured with all equipment (dishwasher, washing machine, coffee machine, airconditioning in all rooms etc), and very clean. Beds were really comfortable and the bbq and the external patio a plus. We did like the welcome cakes we found. Very easy to communicate with the owner. As demanding customers we strongly reccomend it. Eugenio

                          Paradise

                          5 of 5
                          We never normally go back to the same place two years running but after a fantastic holiday last year we could not wait to return and were not disappointed, it was so lovely to be back at the gorgeous villa with its stunning views, our paradise for two weeks !!! Why would you not return ? Angela makes everything so easy when you book and Peter and his family who own the villa are so friendly and welcoming but not at all intrusive. We have two teenagers who love the pool and we all appreciate all the outside space the villa provides. We enjoyed BBQ's on our chilled evenings in, going out we discovered Dennis beach tavern which was lovely along with a favourite Preview. We all enjoy going to Argostoli, walking round the shops, watching the turtles and eating in one of the many restaurants, Casa Grek just off the main square is our favourite. We visited Mrytos beach which is just stunning, along with a couple of local ones where we all enjoyed the water sports. We had a fantastic day on the Queen Bee, a boat trip which we found in Argostoli. The guys on board were so lovely and great fun taking us to different bays where we could swim and snorkel, a lovely lunch and drinks were included. Another fantastic holiday had in beautiful Kefalonia which we have all fell in love with, we will be back for a third time !
