Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Villa Karavaki is a detached three bedroom villa, located in one of the best areas of Kefalonia for water sports and entertainment. Just a kilometre away is the fine red sandy beach of Xi where they have inflatable climbing balloons and a choice of restaurants, snack bars and minimarkets.This beach is especially safe for children and non swimmers with it's shallow water. The water-park at Kounoptra is just around the corner, with four waterslides. The villa has 2 twin bedrooms and one double, all with en-suit bathrooms and walk-in showers. There is a spacious partioned kitchen leading to the lounge with two double patio doors, giving a light airy feeling to this room. The double doors lead out to the large patio surrounding a 7m x 4m private swimming pool. The view from the patio and pool are ever changing with clients commenting on how fabulous it is. The village of Mantavinata is a short stroll away and you can find there a mini market, snack bar, winery and olive press. The nearest town is Lixouri (about 4 km away) where you will find all the facilities of a traditional working town, such as shops, restaurants, banks etc.The Paliki peninsular has it's own unique Greek style and in some ways it can seem like stepping back in time. The many quaint villages and simplistic style of some of the village taverns makes this area so appealing. And yet here is the only part of Kefalonian where you can find water slides (Kounopetra) and inflatable trampolines and games at Xi beach, a great option for easy family entertainment. Caroles 18-hole mini-golf course and snack bar is walking distance away. Vatsa (2 km) has a wonderful taverna situated right on the beach, where you can sit under the rush covered canopy enjoying the sounds of the sea..

The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia lies in the sparkling blue Ionian Sea to the West of mainland Greece.
It is the largest of the Ionian islands, yet has managed to avoid the tourist commercialisation of neighbouring Corfu or nearby Zakynthos. The mystical island of Ithica lies off the North-East coast of Kefalonia.
Kefalonia is a mixture of unspoilt beaches. majestic mountains, fertile green valleys, forests and olive groves. Mount Ainos, in the south of the island, is higher than Britain's Ben Nevis, and affords wonderful views of the island's many villages and beaches. The whole island abounds in wild flora and fauna—early Spring sees Kefalonia ablaze with the colours of millions of wild flowers.
Kefalonian people are wonderfully sociable and can be extremely generous. They are very family-orientated and love children.
Kefalonia has two main towns:-
Argostoli, the capital, has a full range of shops and services including the island's main hospital.
Lixouri, on the Paliki Peninsula, has more traditional shopping and all one would expect from a small town.
There is a frequent ferry service (20 minutes crossing) between Argostoli and Lixouri.
The renowned beach at Xi offers all you will need in watersports and entertainment, and is especially safe for children or non swimmers. The beautiful red sandy beach extends two kilometres to Mega Lakos beach.
This area has breathtaking views over the sea and fantastic sunsets.
The nearest town is Lixouri (about four km.) where you will find all the facilities of a traditional working town, such as shops, restaurants, banks etc.
Mantzavinata (just up the lane) boasts a traditional olive press and a winery, both of which can be visited by the public.
There are many fabulous beaches within easy reach and an 18-hole mini-golf course within half a kilometre.
There are many tavernas - both in the towns and in the surrounding countryside. Vatsa (2 km) has a wonderful taverna situated right on the beach

"Lovely villa with great views"
Lovely villa very clean and well looked after, towels and bed linen changed twice in 2 week stay. Great views from the pool. Car is essential as beach, restaurants and shops too far to walk. This is the quieter part of the island not so built up and feels more Greek. Spaggio's at Vatsa was the best place to eat great for fish and right on the beach.
