Things to do

-Beaches: Svoronata is situated next to some excellent beaches such as Ammes and Avithos which are sandy and great for long promenades. Just 10 minutes by car and visitors will be able to enjoy the sunshine from these beaches. Of course visitors are not restricted to these beaches and further afield visitors will find the popular Myrtos Beach whose clear waters create excellent views from above. More secluded beaches such as those in Lixouri provide apt relaxation grounds though some can only be reached by boat.

-Water sport: A number of water sports are available on the shores of the Ionian here including sea kayaking. One can arrange with local guides to have a kayak ready for them when they arrive. The guides are always eager to show off the amazing views and geological features that adorn the coastline, including some interesting caves. There are also a number of diving clubs eager to take holidaymakers on exciting scuba diving adventures. Novices will receive instruction from seasoned trainers.

-Wineries: Visits to wineries are usually part and parcel of any Kefalonia itinerary and those staying in Svoronata holiday homes will relish the opportunity to learn the process of wine making. A trip to the Gentilini winery will allow the visitor to not just learn, but taste the proceeds of the process. They will also learn about the production of olive oil and get to buy some wine and oil from the gift shop. To be able to see and touch the different grape varieties that go into the wines one needs to visit the Kefalonian Robola Wine Cooperative.

-Wellness: The Agaliasis wellness centre invites holidaymakers to relax and get pampered like royalty as they receive a variety of treatments designed to revitalise their bodies and minds. Any kinks occasioned by the vagaries of life will be massaged away by professional, caring hands. At the end visitors can just relax in the Jacuzzi or go out and enjoy the sun.

-Nightlife: When they’re not up to turning into their Svoronata holiday homes early holidaymakers can take advantage of beach bars such as the popular Beach Bar Mojito at the Antisamos Beach. Apart from sipping their favourite drink in a lovely atmosphere, they can get some excellent dishes.

Although on one side of the complex, we still had good views along the bay, and were close enough to Sami to walk there along the seafront every evening for dinner. The beach outside the complex was not for those who want an organised day at the beach (beach umbrellas, bars etc.), but fine for a quick swim, and the complex does have it's own swimming pool. The staff were helpful and friendly, and it was a great base for exploring the island. We were all very happy with our stay there.

After a busy year we often enjoy a quiet retreat which this villa provided, yet within easy reach of the beautiful harbour of efimia. We enjoyed sun from early morning to late evening and with spectacular golden and red sunrises greeting us each morning. We visited early October so temperatures were a pleasant early to mid 20's, enjoyed from the balcony of the lounge in the morning and from the pool side in the afternoon... With a mild breeze providing welcome respite from the heat of the mid afternoon sun. It also provided an excellent central base in kefalonia to explore other places of interest... But the harbour of efimia with it's restaurants and daily movement of yachts and boats and Greek life was an enjoyable distraction from our busy year! We particularly enjoyed the Paradise Beach restaurant with its friendly service, excellent food, reasonable prices and great views across the sea.... We happen to enjoy a romantic full moon rising one evening from this point! Although it's possible to walk down into efimia we would recommend hiring a car... The cost of hiring a taxi to and from the airport near enough covers this cost and allows exploration of the island too!! We would certainly consider returning to this villa... It was clean, well presented, of modern build and although next to a road winding up the hillside, was very quiet with only the bells of the mountain goats mildly audible in the mornings and early evening! Our host Dionisios, made us feel very welcome and attended any need we had, as well as providing helpful information on local places to see and directions to take! Thank you for a great holiday!!
