The Ionian Islands region
The Ionian Islands are an archipelago on the west coast of Greece. The home land of Odysseus is a place hard not to fall in love with and a journey you will never forget . Their natural beauty will embrace you and the crystal waters of the Ionian sea so friendly to people will intrigue you. The islands are deeply influenced by the people that passed through like the Venetians, French and British.
They are traditionally called the Eptanese. The seven Islands are Corfu, Paxos, Lefkas, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Zante and Kythira. Smaller islands are spread all around.
Kefalonia is the largest and most beautiful island of the Ionian. It has a distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture. It has lots of hidden secrets. Vast olive groves, mount escapes, iridescent waters, picturesque alleyways and traditional arcades. It surprises you with the scenic beaches, the roman ruins, the stunning caves, the Byzantine churches, the Homeric sites and the Venetian fortresses.
Kefalonia is spread with amazingly good tavernas (maybe the best food you have ever eaten in vacation). You can also discover walking trails with running waters inside the mountains, bird watching areas, vineyards with excellent wines. But most importantly Kefalonia will give you a taste of what greek philoxenia (hospitality) is after all.
The Capital of Kefalonia is Argostoli at 27 km. Nearest town Sami is 1.5 km away (archaeological sites, taverns, cafes, bars). Drogarati cave with stalactites and stalagmites is 3.5 km away, and Melissani cave lake is only 500 meters away from the house. Sami is a bustling port, with regular ferries leaving to the Greek mainland and Ithaka.
Karavomylos has traditional colourful taverns. There is also a mini market and a bakery near to the house. A "house museum" is located just in the opposite of the houses depicting the old kefalonian life.
In Sami there are a lot of souvenir, butcher, post office, pharmacy, bank, health center, restaurants and bars.
