Due to this central location on the Island, none of the many places to visit are more than an hour's drive away. This includes Fiskardo to the north (40 mins drive), the famous Myrtos beach (30 mins drive) Skala (45 mins drive) the capital Argostoli (40 mins drive) and the airport (50 mins drive). Also much closer are Antisamos Beach & Bar (15 mins drive), Melissani Caves (2 mins drive) Agia-Paraskevi beach (5 mins drive) and the port town of Agia Efimia (15 mins drive) and many more stunning small beaches all across the coast. Due the size of the island, a rental car or scooter is highly recommended.
Car parking is available roadside around the complex. A small beach is available only 10 meters from the complex, a larger organised beach is only a 15 minute walk. Also available across the island are various activities, including but not limited to Horse Riding, Snorkeling, Kayaking, Swimming, Wine Tasting, Water Sports, Boat Rental and Fishing.

The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands off Greece' west coast, which also include Corfu, Lefkada and Zante (Zakynthos). The Island boasts excellent tourist resorts, the biggest being at Lassi, Poros, Skala and Sami. Smaller more laid back resorts are at Lourdata, Katelios, Assos, Argostoli, Lixouri and Fiscardo to name a few. The island is not only the largest amongst the Ionian Islands, but also features the highest mountain, Mount Ainos, which reaches a height of 1627 M, and covered with Kefalonian fir trees. On a clear day the summit provides stunning views of the neighboring island of Zante (Zakynthos), Lefkada and Ithaca.
Kefalonia has long established credentials as one of the most beautiful places in the world, having received accolades from many high profile professional publications such as Forbes, who awarded Kefalonia the 4th place spot in the 'world's most idyllic places to live.The world famous Myrtos beach, the jewel of our island, lies not far away and is widely considered to be the finest beach in Greece,
Karavomylos is one of the regions of the island most blessed by the unspoilt beauty the area is famous for, with wonders both natural and man made close at hand..One of the many surprising gifts of nature to be found in Kefalonia, Lake Melissani is a stunning underground lake. Close to Karavomylos, only a half kilometre from the sea, this cave-lake has an open roof allowing the light to play on the surface of the water and cast vivid colours and reflections on the glistening walls of the cavern. Small boats circle the lake offering breath-taking photo opportunities of this natural phenomenon. Its Greek name 'cave of the nymphs' reinforces the widely held opinion of those who study the Greek Odyssey, that Lake Melissani is in fact Homer's Cave of the Nymphs, a place of mischievous magical creatures!
Tourists can expect to find a variety of activities across the island, from horse riding to hiking, snorkeling and scuba diving, watersports and boat rentals to name a few, or simply explore the islands many olive groves, vineyards, caves, churches and monasteries, and of course the many stunning beaches, including the world famous Myrtos beach, Antisamos beach, a popular beach only 20 minutes away, with taverns and beach bars. Whether you want a mountain trek, a dungeon crawl through an ancient castle, a tour through millions of years old caves with underwater lakes, kayaking around the island or just to relax next to the clean refreshing Ionian sea, Kefalonia can accommodate you in a way few other destinations can match.
