All Bedrooms En-Suite

This charming, breezy summer house on Kefalonia is perfect for a Greek island getaway. Well equipped for families with children and aesthetically beautiful, this villa has four calming bedrooms and a gorgeous infinity pool. The pool looks out over the surrounding nature and provides a cooling respite from the Mediterranean sunshine. At night, the villa is illuminated and is reflected beautifully in the pool.

Perfect for a visit at any time of year, this dream holiday home is designed with temperature control, so the house stays cool in the summer, toasty and warm in the winter. In the cooler months, curl up by the fire with a glass of mulled wine and admire the sea for the ultimate hygge experience.

Bedrooms are decorated in blue and cosy neutral tones, with some rooms painted in cornflower blue. There is one double room, one small double and two twin rooms, so there's plenty of choice for up to eight guests in total. Statement maritime blue headboards pop against fresh white, while vintage-style painted furniture adds a chic edge. All rooms have their own ensuite bathrooms, and some have their very own private balconies to enjoy the lovely views.

The kitchen is fully equipped and perfect for self-caterers to whip up some home comforts - or if you're feeling adventurous, some souvlaki on the stone barbecue outside. Pendant lighting adds depth, while the space is decorated in calming tones with natural light streaming through the floor to ceiling windows. There are so many choices for dining - around the table in the spacious kitchen, up at the breakfast bar, or out on the terrace.

For those who love to keep active when they go away, there is an exceptionally well-equipped gym that boasts a spinning bike, TRX bands, a pilates ring and yoga blocks. There's plenty of floor space for workouts and additional equipment like exercise balls that keep everything fun.

Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian islands, is a fantastic destination for a family holiday. Villa Kalokairi is nestled in a quiet village, enveloped in nature yet not too far from the bustling town square and quaint alleyways in Lixouri. The village is called Chavriata and known as the Balcony of the Ionian, because of its panoramic views of the lowlands and the gleaming sea. The airport is located 50km away by car, or a 14km drive and a 30-minute ferry.

The second largest town on Kefalonia, Lixouri has an old port and a welcoming, quaint atmosphere. The main square by the port is bordered on three sides by lovely cafes, bars and tavernas. Check out the Jacobean-era Lahovatios Library, where you can marvel at rare books and manuscripts that once belonged to the aristocracy. In town, pick up some local honey and one of the island's famous soaps made from extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs.

Kefalonia is home to heavenly beaches all around the island. Two of the most spectacular are Xi and Petani beach. Red-sand Xi beach is so unique - framed with sand cliffs and bright red clay that visitors can use for a DIY spa moment. The water is warm and shallow, perfect for swimming. Petani beach has white pebbles and crystalline blue water. Many visitors dive into the sea by jumping off the large rock at the eastern end.

Melissani Cave is a beauty spot ideal for nature enthusiasts with two intriguing chambers. There's a light cave illuminated by a hole in the ceiling, with gorgeous blue-green water and a dark cave with fascinating stalagmites. The cave is surrounded by lush forestry and is also known as the Cave of the Nymphs, in part because of the imagery of nymphs inside the cave. There are also clay figures that can be observed inside the chambers.

Greek food is notoriously fresh and delicious. The best place to sample some local fare is at a traditional taverna. Guests can tuck into some tasty moussaka - layers of minced meat and tomato sauce with aubergine and creamy bechamel sauce, baked like a lasagne. Another dish to try is souvlaki, which is skewered meat and sometimes vegetables, grilled to perfection. Examples of local delicacies on Kefalonia are mandola, consisting of roasted almonds and sugar with local seaweed, which gives the snack a red hue. Riganada is a tasty dish made from bread slices with oregano and feta cheese.

Kipouri is a beautiful and famous monastery on Kefalonia. It is also known as 'Land of the Vegetables' after the monks that used to take care of the garden. Inside, discover ancient artefacts and religious imagery. Dramatically overhanging a 100m high cliff, this monastery has an expansive courtyard that is a fantastic seat for the region's amazing sunsets. Take your place and watch the skylight on fire.

Getting There

How to reach Kefalonia island

There are two ways to get to Kefalonia island: either by flight or by ferry.

By ferry: Kefalonia has three ports: Sami (SMI), Argostoli (ARM), and Poros (PKE). If you want to arrive in Sami you should depart from Patra (GRA). In case you want to arrive to Poros or Argostoli you can depart from Killini (KIL). The trips last from 1.5 to 3 hours.

Filoxena, the Greek word for warm and friendly hospitality with a generosity of spirit is always bestowed on the younger members of the family. Greeks love to welcome children and giving them little treats and free snacks! A holiday on Kefalonia is wildly popular with families travelling with kids of all ages.

The villa is designed to cater beautifully to children. They'll adore the infinity pool and the superb sweeping views - just keep an eye on them in the water. And there are two twin rooms that are ideal for hosting kids. Parents of little ones will be pleased to know that there are two baby cots available at the villa.

For many kids, a holiday is all about the beaches. Most of Kefalonia's shorelines are child-friendly, thanks to the shallow waters perfect for splashing around in the sea. Lepeda beach has red-toned sand and green water that glitters in the Mediterranean sunshine. Xi beach is stunning with its unique deep red sand, and the beach is safe and welcoming. There are umbrellas for shade and places to grab a snack nearby.

In Lixouri, there is an aqua park with four huge waterslides that will keep daredevils entertained all afternoon. While located inside a hotel, non-guests are welcome to visit the waterpark. Children will love strolling around the charming port area and town square. There are
