Make a holiday villa in Svoronata your home away from home

A holiday in Kefalonia, the largest of the Greek Ionian islands, is treating oneself to the total package; kilometres of stunning coastline, including stretches of sandy beach, acres of lush green forest rising into majestic mountains and oodles of striking monuments among other attractions. There are also great places in which to sample sumptuous traditional Greek specialities while rubbing shoulders with the warm locals. Svoronata is a laid back village on flat ground towards the southwest of Kefalonia. Many tourists jump at the chance to rent holiday homes in Svoronata due to its proximity to the airport and to a number of great beaches. The wonderful panoramic views some of the units here provide make them all the more desirable. The holiday villas in Svoronata offered by HomeAway are particularly enticing thanks to features such as infinity pools and beautiful green gardens.

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.

From the impeccable interiors to the sublime sea and mountain views, this villa is simply breathtaking and without a doubt the most exquisite place to stay on Kefalonia. The owners are incredibly hospitable and responded to our messages very promptly; although we did not meet in person, we felt very looked after and they were so keen to make sure our stay was seamless. The villa itself is just gorgeous, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs which are tastefully decorated, and on the ground floor the TV room, living area and dining area provide plenty of space for relaxation. Everything has been carefully thought out, and the elegant furnishings make you feel like you're staying in the lap of luxury while also right at home. We came to Kefalonia to work remotely for a couple of months, and we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful property. The inviting terrace was well appointed and meant we could work al fresco while admiring the views towards the sea, or the lights of Agia Effimia twinkling at night. The whole feel was incredibly soothing, with lush gardens beyond the pool and an outdoor dining area offering yet another shady spot for us to work; and the outdoor kitchen was a special touch that we weren't expecting! The location is also a real highlight, as the villa is discreetly tucked away yet it's just a short 5-minute drive to the shops and restaurants at Agia Effimia in one direction, and in the other the legendary Myrtos Beach with its brilliant blue seas. We highly recommend Cafe Giorgos whose staff are very friendly and the food is wonderfully fresh; turn left at the top of the road when you're coming from the beach. Other places not to miss which aren't far from the villa are Assos (by boyfriend proposed to me here!), Sami, Drogarati Cave, Melissani Lake and the beach at Antisamos. This whole area really showcases the best of the island! Overall, Phivos and Lito went above and beyond to make our stay perfect, and helped us so much even long after we had returned to the UK (we had a fleeting weekend visit back to the villa in January, in the snow!). It's this care and attention to detail that makes the whole experience unrivalled. Without a doubt we'll be coming back to this magical place.

We loved the infinity pool and being able to relax on the patio areas around the villa. The villa and gardens have been finished to a very high standard - the owners had thought of everything to make this an ideal holiday spot.

The 6 of us enjoyed every day in kefalonia, wether we were out exploring the island or simply relaxing by the pool this property allowed us the holiday we wished for. It is located about 20 minutes from Agolstoli and around 40 minutes from Skala therefore offering a good central location for getting around the island. Wendy and Dave met us at the airport helped us to the villa and aided us with any queries, although there really wasn't much required as far as help goes as the information pack provided to us gave us everything we needed to know about the property, local amenities and even as far as the local Greek culture. We will be booking our next holiday here without any doubt as 1 weeks is nowhere near enough time to see everything this island has to offer.
