Finally you will find a barbecue area complete with large table and chairs : a wonderful location for all fresco dining beside the floodlit pool ! We are not here just to rent you one of our villas. We want to help you have the best possible holiday. We visit daily to clean the pool and tend the gardens, giving you a regular and easy opportunity to ask questions and get some advice. We live close by, so can be very accessible if you need anything. At our home, we hold a weekly table d'hôtes evening to offer you a chance to try authentic home-made Greek and French cuisine. We can use our local knowledge to get the best possible rates at a local car-hire company. We can suggest local taverns where the food is authentic, give advice on where to go and what to see. Indeed if you wish, for a supplementary charge, we can provide a welcome pack, with some local produce so you can swim and have lunch by the pool, immediately on arrival. Finally, our welcome extends to meeting you at the airport, helping you to collect your car (or hiring one if you have not organized it already.) and leading you to your villa. More

About the neighbourhood
Karavados is located in an excellent position being only 10 kms from Argostoli (the capital) and 15 minutes' drive from the airport However, a car is really recommended if you wish to explore this varied and wonderful island Do not just stick to the well-famed names of Myrtos, Platis Gialos and the Xi beach. Do not hesitate to cross a few more kilometres and a new – not that well - known but the same beautiful Kefalonia wlll be revealed to you. Typical villages, churches and hilltop monasteries. Multi-hued stalactites and stalagmites fill the cool caverns of Drogarati and sunlight creates ever-changing colours on the subterranean lake of Melissani. Loggerhead turtles nest on the island's southern shores and rare birds flock to the Koutavos lagoon in Argostoli.... In fact, nobody can feel bored in Kefalonia !
