Why Kefalonia ?
Variety is the simple answer.
Picture-postcard villages and harbours full of character, to stunning beaches and amazing coastline. As this is not enough, the walking opportunities are wonderful, and history is fascinating.
Our featured regions are near Myrtos Beach,along the Erissos peninsula to the north , with its spectacular mountain and coastal scenery. Here, the beautiful harbour of Fiscardo and the sleepy village of Assos are to be found , along with incredible beaches like Myrtos[near Assos] and gorgeous pebble coves and inlets, many of which are accessible only by boat. We bring all these exclusive to you with a marvelous collection of sea view villas and luxury accommodations in Kefalonia. All exclusive to you, ideal for family, couples and honeymoon hoildays.
There are so many places to explore in Kefalonia-you may visit Argostoli, the bustling capital of the island, or visit the underground lake of Melissani cave, or see the stalactites and stalagmites at the cave of Drogarati.
If history is what you are interested in,there are Venetian fortresses, Byzantine remains, Mycenaean tombs and Roman mosaics.
Our Ecxlusive Collection of sea view villas and waterfront villas is situated on the hillside opposite the 16th century Venetian Castle of Assos enjoying panoramic sea views over the picturesque Bay of Assos . There is a strong Venetian presence throughout the village with pretty pastel coloured houses overlooking the yachts and local fishing boats moored in the horse shoe shaped harbour. In the evenings the village lights illuminate the harbour, creating a magical ambiance throughout the village so why not enjoy a romantic meal at one of the waterfront villas and watch the sun set over the Ionian Sea. During the day Assos has much to offer with bird watching, rambling lots of walks including spending half a day exploring the Assos’s 16th century Venetian castle whose remains form one of the most famous landmarks on Kefalonia.

With fishing boats around the bay, bougainvillea hanging from the Venetian-style houses and waterfront villas, Fiscardo is a truly picturesque harbour village – one to rival any in the Mediterranean.
One of the few Cephalonian villages left intact following the earthquake of 1953, Fiscardo is everything that you could possibly imagine a Mediterranean (or Ionian) harbour to be.
Strict conservation laws have happily preserved an array of original Venetian and Venetian style buildings, attractively decorated in pastels and white. These buildings are spread across two small bays leading to the stunning harbour. A stroll around the village will take you through winding alleyways, past the church and on to the focal point of the village, with its attractive selection of restaurants, shops and bars that stretch alongside the harbour side.
Apart from being a picture postcard village, Fiscardo is a working fishing port and so retains an authentic feel. A benefit of this is the wonderful fresh fish served in the restaurants – less often the case than you would imagine elsewhere in the Mediterranean.

Livathos l Avithos Region
Southwest of Kefalonia ‘s capital Argostoli, lies a beautiful stretch from Avithos Beach to Makris and Platis Yialos beach in Lassi providing a perfect terrain for exploring the island . Avithos and Megali Petra beaches with their golden sand are a unique getaway, and welcome visitors with their warm sea.
Tradition, the charms of nature reflected in the sun’s rays, and bright colours dominate the endless beaches of our coastline. . Opposite lies the island of Dias (Zeus). It is a rocky island named after the ancient altar of Zeus, which was in constant contact with the other sanctuary of Enisiou at the top of Mount Enos. Today it boasts a small chapel built on the ruins of the altar by an unnamed hermit, dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
Avithos beach, which has often been awarded a Blue Flag of Europe (for cleanliness, position, appearance, services), has all the necessary facilities, and there are two restaurants located there, Enetiko and Preview, where you can sample the wonderful cuisine and have excellent service. To the west, there is another beach, Ai Helis, with its steps and black sand, which offers you more enjoyment. Also, in the same area you can visit Ammes beach and the beaches around the airport, which are ideal for families with children because of their shallow waters.
A handful of bars and tavernas, a trio of beaches within easy reach, and the rolling hills of the Livathos region all around you …holidays in Svoronata – in a nutshell.
In the Livathos area, if you're looking for countryside walks you will discover a great abundance of herbs, flowers and birds.
