The beaches in the South of the island are generally sandy, & many are safe for swimming & provide excellent snorkelling.

Also worth a visit is the beautiful church of Agios Gerasimos, the Drogarti caves and the Melissani Lake or a day trip to Ithaca. The dramatic Mount Ainos, 1628m, & its surrounding National Park provides excellent walking opportunities, particularly in the spring & Autumn, & is home to the islands native wild horses, eagles and osprey The famous Robola vineyards are found in the nearby Omala Valley.

About Kefalonia: With only 32,000 resident islanders during the winter time. Lefkas to the north and Zakynthos to the south the island is firmly on a tourist trail and is growing. Despite the annual influx of visitors, mainly English, the island is so big it is still possible to get away to places where you are unlikely to meet a soul for days. Vast tracts of forest cloak the rugged limestone landscape, Mt. Ainos is the highest point, 1628 m. Kefalonia has much to offer to the visitor: caves and lakes of unique beauty, long beaches, bays, gulfs, some of the best shores in Europe.

Lixouri is the capital of Palliki the penisular of Cephalonia opposite Argostoli and is connected by a local ferry. Sami and Poros are the main transport links to Kefalonia, Sami more recently famous for becoming the site for a rebuild of old Argostoli in the Kefalonia box office hit film 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin'.

Melissani is a steep-sided cave (3.5 km long, 40m wide and 36m high) where its salt waters fed by the stream that disappears underground at Argostoli. The water is a gorgeous deepblue and the boatmen enteraining. Melissani lake was discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Gianni Petrochilo .... more ...

Excellent - very well equipped and presented

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Argante. The villa was very clean and extremely well equipped . Isobel was charming and most helpful and we very much appreciated the welcome pack.

The pool and surrounding areas were beautifully kept and we enjoyed the pool very much.

It was great to have so many good little restaurants locally and loved the fresh bread from the bakery in the morning .

All in all the villa certainly lived up to and in fact exceeded our expectations - hope very much to return and would certainly recommend it.

Amazing Villa, Amazing Honeymoon !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is located in a very quiet picturesque village just 10 minutes from the airport

The village has all the local amenities which include a supermarket a local bakery, cake shop and a couple of restaurants

when we arrived, the villa was very clean and tidy and as we were on our honeymoon we had Champagne in our welcome pack given to us by the owners.

The villa has all the comforts to help make your stay more enjoyable, like Air conditioning, Satellite TV and Free Wifi.

The pool was cleaned every other day and was always clean inside and out.

The information pack given by the owners telling us about the villa and local news we found was very helpful and informative.

This is the best villa we have ever stayed in and it certainly wont be our last visit. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants a quiet holiday in a secluded villa with its own pool surrounded by stunning views of all the mountains.

For me this villa ticks all the boxes and then some.

5* Villa, Excellent Location, Beautiful Views.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived, we knew we had chosen well. Villa Argante is immaculately clean (thank you, Isabelle), well equipped and comfortably furnished. Pool and garden are beautifully kept and the views are fabulous. The location is another plus point - only 15 minutes’ drive from the airport, yet semi-rural and private. Bakery, tavernas and mini-market to hand in Lakithra or about a 10 minute drive to the well-stocked AB supermarket. An organic farm restaurant, En Kefallinia, on the edge of the village, is not to be missed – superb food and excellent service (as with a previous reviewer, we also visited three times!). We have had many holidays in privately owned villas and this was by far the best. Many thanks to David & Elaine. We very much look forward to the opportunity to return.

A glimpse of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Argante is a wonderful place to stay on a beautiful island. The villa is spacious, clean and has every facility one needs on a holiday. All the bedrooms are of equal size so for 3 adult couple there would not be choice issue except for the downstairs one sharing the bathroom during the daytime. The outside space and pool are perfect for those days when you just want to relax and not go far. During our stay (12 nights) we had 2 linen changes. Kefalionia is a beautiful island and now I've been there I think I have been spoilt and definitely want to return.

Relaxing holiday in Villa Argante

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a superb two week holiday in Villa Argante. The villa and pool were beautifully clean and well maintained. It is located in Lakithra village which has three good restaurants within easy walking distance and a bakery at the top of the lane. Our favourite restaurant was En Kefalinia which we visited three times and always received a warm welcome and excellent service. We also enjoyed fresh warm bread every morning. It is close to Argostoli and three well stocked local supermarkets. We enjoyed cocktails in George's cocktail bar in the village. Beware - they are cheap and strong which is a dangerous combination! A car is essential if you want to explore the island but not after a visit to George's! We will definitely return to Villa Argante
