The Ionian Islands region
The Ionian Islands are situated in western Greece. They sport some of the best beaches in Greece and enjoy the best climate, with an ideal balance of humidity and sunshine. They are amongst the greenest Greek islands.
The best and largest island in the Ionian Sea is Kefalonia (or Cephalonia). It is renowned for its amazing beaches and you will need at least a week to see the island properly. It combines blue turquoise waters with a long history, various sightseeing opportunities and natural beauty. Whether you like swimming, sailing, watersports, hiking or just relaxing, spending time with your family or friends, Kefalonia is the island for you. Its people will capture you with their hospitality and ingenuity, as they are rumored to be the real descendants of Ulysses.
The villas are in a quiet location; a few minutes’ walk or drive to the best sand beaches on the island. Mini markets and tavernas are within walking distance in the Ammes beach area. A few minutes’ drive to the island’s capital, Argostoli (9km), the busy seaside resort of Lassi (7km) and the airport.
Four different sand beaches are close by: Eglina beach (350m), Megali Ammos beach (650m), Spasmata beach (1.3km), Ammes beach (2km). Some are well organized with umbrellas and beach bars, while others are not. On a windy day, because of their circular orientation, there will always be a perfectly calm and a very windy beach close by. Further away, you can get, in a few minutes’ drive, to some of the best sand beaches on the island: cosmopolitan Makris Gialos beach (5.8km), Platis Gialos beach (5.5km), Avithos beach (5.8km) or Ai Helis beach (4.5km).
Kefalonia’s picturesque capital, Argostoli, and the seaside resort of Lassi are a few kilometers away. They are the main amenities and entertainment hubs on the island, in terms of watersports, tavernas, bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, hospital, banks, glass bottom boat excursions etc.
Kefalonia is one of the largest islands in Greece and it will take at least a week to see it properly. During your stay you can visit the Venetian castles of St George and Assos, the picturesque fishing village of Fiscardo, the Melissani and Drogarati Caves at Sami. You will gawp at the view from the monasteries of Kipouria, Themata, Sissia and you will see many picturesque small villages and beaches along the way.
If you enjoy outdoor activities, such as fishing, horse riding, hunting, diving, sea kayaking, canoeing, yachting or even flying a light aircraft, there will be plenty of opportunities in Kefalonia to indulge. You can also go trekking on mount Ainos (1,620m), one of the highest mountains in the Greek Islands and one of ten National Parks in Greece. There is an excellent view from its peak, where in ancient times a temple of the ancient Greek god, Zeus, was situated, according to the ancient Greek author Hesiod.
Kefalonia became famous worldwide, since being the background setting of Louis de Bernieres bestselling book ”Captain Corelli's Mandolin" and the ensuing Hollywood film starring Penelope Cruz and Nicholas Cage.
If you would like to explore nearby islands with your own car, it is possible to visit Ithaka, Lefkas or Zakynthos from Kefalonia by ferry boat or as part of an organized excursion.

"Lovely place on a lovely island"
This is a very well looked after villa, with all mod cons. Lovely beaches very close by, so definitely did not miss not having a swimming pool! Great for kids too!… More

"beautiful landscape of Kefalonia"
Being in the south east part of Kefalonia and close to the airport, Avra Villa is an excellent central point from which to see the beautiful landscape of Kefalonia.
The villa is of the highest quality and we really miss the exotic starry nights that we enjoyed most from the rooftop terrace.

"Very good value for money"
For a family with three children Minies Villas appears to be very good value for money for holidays in the Captain Corelli's island. Close to the airport, but still worth renting a car to explore the island even if the beaches are within walking distance
