Villas in Kefalonia

We selected all our villas in Kefalonia for their proximity to the amazing Kefalonian beaches. Most are situated in the scenic countryside, mere minutes drive from the main resorts, but we also have villas located on the southern tip of the island. These villas are nestled in the hills, offering stunning landscape views like no other. If you fancy a twin centre holiday, Ithaka is only a short boat ride away, and it offers a relaxed and slower pace of life.

    On the beach in Kefalonia

    Kefalonia boasts some of the best beaches in the Greek Islands, with waters considered amongst the cleanest in the world.

Secluded sandy coves offer beautiful views over small bays to the west, while many of Kefalonia’s Blue Flag beaches offer clean, well-organised facilities ideal for a family holiday. Drive around the coast, especially the east and stumble across small beaches scattered amongst rocks and trees, under the main coastal road.

    Outdoor pursuits in Kefalonia

    Acres of inland forest-covered mountains provide captivating views of Kefalonia and its stunning scenery, neighbouring Greek Island Zakynthos can even be spotted on a clear blue-sky day. Spend the day visiting tiny isolated beaches and coves all along Kefalonia’s pretty coastline on a boat trip, observe the sea-turtles nesting on the beach and visit natural wonders like sinkholes that make sea water disappear then reappear across the island. Horseback riding is found at several holiday resorts, as well as watersports facilities, cycle hire and bird watching hotspots.

    Hints of history in Kefalonia

    Archaeological finds suggest that humans have lived in Kefalonia since Neolithic times 7,000 years ago. For the explorer, many ancient sites of unrivalled beauty still reside here. These range from Venetian fortresses and monasteries, Byzantine churches and underground Mycenaean tombs dating back to 1200 BC, to the remains of a Roman villa and its fascinating mosaics from the second century AD. More recently, visitors flock to this Greek Island for its connection to Captain Corelli’s Mandolin – the book and subsequent film, inspired by World War II.

    Upbeat nights in Kefalonia

    Much of the busy nightlife in Kefalonia is concentrated in the main holiday resort of Lassi and the island’s capital, Argostoli, where the central square is lined with many restaurants, cafés and bars and on a warm summer night, local people take their traditional evening walk here. Kefalonia’s larger harbour side resorts also offer bustling entertainment, including traditional dancing and live Greek music – a good way to observe the local way of life on your villa holiday. In the smaller, more rural villages you’ll find local tavernas and nightspots offering a quieter, relaxing and romantic evening retreat.
