The main town of Lixouri is just minutes drive away and offers all you will need in amenities, including shops and a large selection and variety of restaurants and bars.

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.

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.
Mantoukata is a small hamlet set on a hillside looking out beyond the Gulf to the mountains beyond. If you’re looking for Greece at its most rural then this is for you—the area is mainly farmland (olives, vines and goats..) to the east and mountainside to the west.
This small hamlet sports no shops but, further along the road, in Havdata, there is a mini-market and several tavernas.
However, despite its totally Greek ethnic ambience, Mantoukata is only a few minutes drive from the main Palliki town of Lixouri.
Lixouri is very traditional, offering all the amenities and facilities of a working town. In the main square you will find a large selection of snack and coffee bars. Off the main square are a number of pedestrianised side streets offering numerous shops, tavernas and snack bars. The main promenade of the town is lined by a mixed selection of tavernas offing water-front dining.
Mantoukata is an excellent base for walkers and beach lovers alike. The fabulous Kipouria Monastery is just over the mountain and beaches abound on the South and east coasts of the peninsula.

"A must for large families"
If your looking for an idyllic Greek holiday,this is the place to stay.With five bedrooms,three bathrooms,a large lounge and pool there is plenty of room for ten people to live in comfort.The villa is situated on a quiet road in a small village outside of Lixouri.Lixouri itself is a small town surrounding a square where you can find tavernas,cafes and supermarkets.
Cars are essential on Kefalonia and I would advise anyone considering a holiday near Lixouri to pre-book before arrival.We had two waiting for us at the airport.Very reasonably priced considering where you are.
The people are very friendly and helpful and many speak very good English.
The only downside with the villa is pool safety.With three young children in our family party we made sure that the doors were locked at night and the keys placed high on a shelf to prevent them going by the pool unattended.Other than this we had a great time and I would recommend this villa to anyone considering a villa holiday.

"Lovely, large villa"
Great house, ideal for lots of fun given all the accommodation and space. It is also ten minutes from Lixouri by car, which is handy (but also means that towns are not walkable from the villa). The outside entertainment area is great in the afternoons/evenings. The generous swimming pool is where you spend most of your time in the afternoons, given the temperature. The only drawback is the childfriendliness. I would suggest you ask the owners to put a gate up at the bottom of the stairs and to close off the pool with a fence. That will help you relax more if you have young kids.
