Nearby the villa: The villa has breathtaking views of the sea south to Zakinthos and across the bay to Mount Ainos, which reaches 1,628 m (5,100 ft) and is covered by a black forest of indigenous, rare pine trees. Nearby are the beaches of Aghios Thomas, Lourdas, Pesada, Avithos and Lassi each with their own restaurants (the region of Livathos offers many beautiful sandy beaches for those who want to spend quiet and secure holidays). Also nearby is the castle of St George (16th century Venetian castle - the capital of Cephalonia up to 1757) with all round views and clifftop restaurants, Mount Ainos national park and Mazarakata graves (post Minoan). The capital, Argostoli, with shops, restaurants, bars and clubs is 20 minutes drive. Supermarkets are 10 minutes drive away and the nearest village of Spartia with its small stores and the beach, are both 2 minutes drive.
Some island attractions: Other stunning attractions on the island include Melissani lake (underground cave / lagoon near Sami), Drogarati cave (near Sami) and Myrtos beach (spectacular scenery as you approach the beach by using a quaint winding road - it’s worth the effort because when you arrive, you will be struck by the beauty of the spectacular white pebbles lying on the beach).
