The Ionian Islands region
Zola is a unique Kefalonian hideaway seaside village. With its own beautiful sandy beaches, coves, harbour and tavernas this is a real get-away-from-it-all location. Yet it’s idyllic location on the island is only 20mins drive from Lixouri and 30 mins to Argostoli or Sami. The beach of Aghia Kiriaki is only a 5 minutes drive down into the bay.
Wherever you are in Zola you have the most fantastic views. Hiding round a headland is the world renowned
Myrtos Beach and only a short way over the bay is Assos with its hilltop castle. On the northern horizon lies Lefkas, whilst majestic mountains rise to the east and west.
The island of Kefalonia enjoys long hot summers and you are never far from any number of fabulous beaches. Don't forget to bring your snorkel! The sea is so clear and blue you won't be able to resist taking a dip.
There are a number of tavernas in the Zola area offering a varied menu from fish to succulent steaks and traditional Greek cuisine. Try a wonderful sea-food meal at the small harbour-side taverna or rent a small motor-boat to explore the secluded coves along the coast. You may be lucky enough to spot some of the numerous dolphins or turtles that can be found there.
Just up the coastline is the picturesque village of Assos with its quaint harbour. The adventurous may wish to hike up to the Venetian fortress to take in the views over the whole coastline. Continuing northwards from Assos will eventually bring you to the harbour of Fiscardo, famous for its Venetian architecture which has survived over the years.
Stunning beaches, Diving, Monastery of Agios Gerasimos and Vineyard, Melassani Lake, Drogarati Caves, ‘Captain Correlli’ at Sami and Antisamos and much much more. Voted one of the top 10 places in the world to holiday. Once you’ve been you’ll know why....
