The Ionian Islands region
Karavados is only a 25 min drive from the capital Argostoli. There are some local shops where you can buy bread, milk and other 'basics' - the supermarket is about a 5 minute drive. There are two small beaches with umbrellas and sun beds that can be hired for a few Euros + a taverna selling cold drinks, ice cream and snacks for lunch and the catch-of-the-day, BBQ to order by night. There are some great walks around the villa with the most unusual rock formations on the opposite side to the beach, great for rock-pooling or just taking a stroll. If walking is not your thing, lie back under the towering visual of Mount Enos, equally spectacular by day or night.
The island has its own airport with airport code being "EFL", direct flights during the main summer season May to October from Gatwick, Luton, Bristol, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow (time flight is approximately 3 hours and 15 mins). Have a look at these sites: www.flythomascook.com, www.flydeals.co.uk, www.airflights.co.uk, www.a1travel.co.uk, www.xl.com.
Daily flights from Athens to Kefalonia (time flight is 45 mins). Have a look at these sites: www.ageanair.com, www.olympicair.com, www.easyjet.com.
There are always taxis available and the transfer time is 20 mins (the cost does not exceed 30 euros).
There are all international car rental offices (Avis, Europcar, Hertz)as well as local car rental office (www.kefalonia-rentacar.com) or the one i always use www.expresstentacar.gr which we have always found to be very reliable.
Kefalonia is also accessible by ferry from Patras to Sami, by ferry from Kylini to Poros, by ferry from Zante to Pessada, by ferry from Lefkas to Fiskardo.
No island in Greece offers the same feeling as Kefalonia and no matter how close they may lie, Kefalonia stands alone as a unique holiday experience. Kefalonia even has its own following of holiday devotees who love the island so much that they return year on year. Weather in Kefalonia is great from Mid April to end December.
The islands scenery is so different to that of the other Greek islands, even though Corfu and Zante are so close neither manages to afford the same lush ambiance of the beautiful Kefalonia. Lush green fir-capped mountains reach high up into the clear sunny sky, picturesque headlands, watery inlets, golden bays and fantastic beaches spread around the island.
The island's people are fantasitc, known for their friendly banter and raw sense of humour, while the island may have a relaxed atmosphere its people are forward thinking and manage to weave the old ways into modern culture. Kefalonia is far from old fashioned as has some of the most trendy apartments, hotels and beaches in the Ionian islands!
Kefalonia was devastated by an earthquake in 1953 which has given rise to a new modern island, reborn from the ruins with new buildings and a new style that is wonderful, especially when complimented by the beautiful weather and clear blue sea's that encompas the island.
Tourism in kefalonia is still in its infancy, most of the resorts are comparatively small however the services are in place to make both the night and day of your holiday a wonderful experience.
The food in Kefalonia is typically Greek although all resorts have a large choice of food to suit everyone. The food on the island is generally high quality as the Ioanian people enjoy good food and meal times are often the highlight of the day. The island is also well stocked with drink, with many brands available from locally produced beer and wine to imported national brands.
If you fancy a trip during your holiday Kefalonia has a sister island Ithaka which is just a short boat trip away, however kefalonia has plenty to see and do, if you are interested in seeing the sights Kefalonia has to offer why not click through to our interesting sights page. If you had to pick just 2 things to see during your visit we would suggest the underground lake at Melissania cave and the stunning Myrtos beach as both are wonderful sights.

Sharon and Leigh have thought of everything in this villa. Our first villa holiday and it was fab. Beautiful views across to Zante and of Mount Ainos (definitely worth a drive to the top too for the views around the island). There is everything you want there and you know beforehand which helps with the packing immensely :)
Sharon and Leigh are fab on communications too, so there are no worries. Pool man does a great job too. Thank you!
Thanks for a lovely review.We are so happy your first villa family holiday was to "Morgorlwg Fila" and we are so pleased your holiday there was fabulous too. It's lovely to hear you loved the views in all directions as much as we do, the views certainly captured us on our very first visit to Kefalonia too:) It's great to hear you had such a lovely family holiday together and hope you have many wonderful memories to treasure always together.

It's great to hear the "WOW" factor, thanks for a lovely review.We are so pleased you all had a fantastic holiday at "Morgorlwg Fila" and that you thought our villa was "exceptional" in all aspects.We do agree the peace and tranquil setting really does leave you feeling so relaxed after your time there.Its lovely to hear your little ones enjoyed watching the baby chicks feed in their nest under the cabin canopy, we were in Awe when we watched the swallows build their nest, we watched them for a few days one of them bringing bits of mud and the other bits of twigs until they completed it- nature is such a wonderful thing! The birds come back every year and each year there are baby chicks, we do agree it certainly is a treat to see:). So pleased you all had lots of fun with our great selection of outdoor toys. Its lovely to hear you and your family enjoyed your time together in our spacious garden and pool, as well as the little walks near by and the beautiful beach at St Thomas.We hope you have lots of wonderful memories of your time at "Morgorlwg Fila". May time is just perfect for exploring.It was a pleasure communicating with you and we hope we have the pleasure to welcome you all back again soon.Best wishes Sharon & Leigh

"A very pleasant place to stay"
This is a very nice, comfortable place to stay. The garden area is large and with the variety of equipment provided by the owners offers an excellent facility for children; the swimming pool too was very popular with our young (3 years and 19 months) grandchildren - not to mention the adults!
There are extensive views east over Trapezaki Bay (and beach) and to Mount Ainos but the property is fairly remote so a hire car should be considered essential. Whilst one may reach the property by taxi from the airport (around Euro 25 - 30) and the walk to the (small) local beach is hardly a "route march", even the nearest (small, relatively expensive) supermarket is quite a distance away and so walking to it (or worse, back from it whilst carrying provisions) in the sort of temperatures we go to this destination to experience, is not recommended! There are a few "larger" supermarkets (remember the size of Kefalonia) but none is within walking distance.
The owners were very obliging and helpful even purchasing, at short notice, an item required for the younger child.
We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children and found the accommodation perfectly adequate and most comfortable; thank you Sharon and Leigh.
We are so happy to hear you and your family had a lovely time together at Morgorlwg Fila. We certainly agree that our rural beach location is definitely one to treasure for it's stunning views of both the mountains and Ocean and it's tranquil setting.
We are so pleased you found everything perfectly homely and comfortable and that the variety of equipment we provide for all to enjoy you found excellent. It's great to know your little ones had lots of fun with you all in the swimming pool and large spacious garden.Kefalonia temperatures even in early June certainly do soar :) we hope you have many treasured memories of your family time together at Morgorlwg Fila, it was certainly a pleasure communicating with you all.We hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you all back again in the near future.Best wishes Sharon & Leigh

"Best holiday ever!"
This has literally been our best holiday ever, so relaxing and a fabulous villa, we couldn't have asked for more and the sea views from the villa are absolutely stunning. For April the weather was surprisingly hot so we were delighted. The villa is in a great location, lovely and quiet but just ten minutes' drive from the town of Argostoli, with some fantastic shops and restaurants. The owners, Sharon and Leigh, had given us some wonderful tips about where to do the best shopping, fresh meat and fish from the market and vegetables from the market stalls in Argoostoli, etc.. We are real foodies and they obviously share our passion for cooking. The kitchen has everything you could possible need, and the BBQ in the garden is just brilliant.
Our teenage boys enjoyed exploring the beach on their own, so they didn't have to spend every waking moment with us and the locals are so friendly, many speak English and are happy to help.
Even though it was a little early on in the season we did swim in the beautiful pool, and soaked up the sun on the terrace, it was bliss! The upper terrace that leads off the kitchen and living area is the ultimate place for waking up with a coffee, it is bathed in sun first thing in the morning, then offers a shadier spot later on in the day.
There is really nothing negative we could say about it all, the villa is immaculate, was as clean as could be and perfectly equipped. We had honestly not expected as many home comforts.
Sharon and Leigh, thanks for everything, we will be back !!!
Ron, Lizzie and the kids
It is lovely to hear you all had a great holiday at Morgorlwg Fila. We are so pleased the weather was good and are so happy you enjoyed the villa views and comforts as much as we do. The views from the verander certainly captured us on our very first visit to Kefalonia too :) . We certainly agree that the best fresh fruit ,veg ,fish and meat markets are at Argostoli . April is a great time to explore the island so glad your teenage boys enjoyed their walks and the beach. We are so pleased everything was to your expectations and certainly hope we have the pleasure to welcome you all again in the future

"A Touch of Class"
We had two fantastic weeks at Morgorlwg Fila. The villa is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, equiped to a very high standard and extremely comfortable throughout. Fantastic sea and night-time views of the delightful St Thomas bay and towering Mount Einos added to the magical charm of the villa's unique and tranquil setting. The bedrooms were beautifully furnished with lovely quilt covers and pillow cases, the bathrooms had fantastic showers and it was obvious that the owners, Leigh and Sharon, had gone to extaordinary lengths to make the villa as homely as possible.
Outside the pool was great and the good-sized garden was a verdent green due to the fantastic night hours sprinkler system - this even after what must have been months of relentless sunshine - and there were lots of quality wooden sun loungers and tables and chairs.
A car is more or less essential here - nearest mini-market is around 2km and nearest decent supermarket a good 10 minute easy drive - but it is a great base to explore more of this beautiful island and has a bonus of being a mere10-15 minute drive from the airport. Nearby amenities include the Karavados Beach Hotel (5 minutes walk - meals, drinks and a greek night once a week) and a couple of tavernas and a beach bar on St Thomas beach (again a 5 minute walk, providing you use the direct downhill short-cut). There are plenty of other options within a 10 minute drive, particularly on the road to Lourdata.
All in all Morgorlwg Fila surpassed our expectations on just about every level. It was our first trip to Kefalonia and we were completely smitten by its laid back lifestyle and breathtaking scenery. To be able to experience all that in such a wonderful villa really was the icing on the cake. Thank you Leigh and Sharon.
Thank you for your lovely review,we were quite overwhelmed by it, we are so happy to hear you had such a fantastic time at Morgorlwg Fila and are so pleased to hear that our level of high standards throughout in quality, deco, cleanliness, facilities and maintenance exceeded your expectations. We take pride in making our villa as welcoming and homely as possible as we want you to relax in comfort as if it were your own home so you will want to return again soon. The breath taking views in our tranquil settings captured us on our very first visit to kefalonia too, the verander views and evenings are definitely something to treasure. we hope you have many treasured memories of your family time together at Morgorlwg Fila and certainly hope we have the pleasure to welcome you back again sometime soon. It was a great pleasure communicating with you. Best Wishes
