Villa Pessada Unique enjoys a wonderful position just above the beautiful Pessada cove with magnificent views of the Ionian Sea and the National Park of Mount Aenos. The villa is within easy reach of the island’s buzzy capital Argostoli and just moments from Pessada Beach, Chatzokli Beach and Klimatsias Beach. Kefalonia is a paradise island with a mythical Greek history at its heart. The scenic setting for Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, it has much to offer and  will definitely steal your heart. The towns of Argostoli, Lixouri, Fiskardo and Assos should all be on your list of places to visit as well as the island’s dazzling, sand covered beaches.

Pessada is a delightful seaside village with lovely views over to Zante. It enjoys several pretty beaches with crystal clear emerald water and rocks dotted around the bay. Other beaches that are worth visiting are Trapezaki Beach 1.3 miles from the villa, Avithos Beach 2.6 miles away, Ammes Beach 4 miles away and Minies Beach just over 5 miles away. A little further are Makris Gialos Beach, Xi Beach, Poros Beach and Skala Beach. You should also include a stop at the famous Myrtos Beach.

Argostoli stands proudly at the far end of a natural bay surrounded by mountains and lush forests. The major 1953 earthquake destroyed the town which was re-built and is now a cosmopolitan wonder with a palm lined coastal promenade, a wonderful array of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, a small ferry quay where boats can take you to Lixouri and fishing boats moor up and a lively central square. You will discover the beautiful Church of Saint Spyridon and the fascinating clock tower of Campana Square. The town’s Archaeological Museum of Kefalonia is home to interesting archaeological finds from the Mycenaean, Hellenistic and Roman periods. There are plenty of other museums and monasteries to visit including the Byzantine Ecclesiastical Museum, 2 miles from the villa, the Monastery of Agios Milapidias, 2 miles away, the Monastery of Sission, 2.9 miles away and the Historical and Folklore Museum of Corgialenos 4.8 miles away.

You can take the boat over from Argostoli to Lixouri,  the second largest town in Kefalonia. Lixouri was built on the site where the ancient city of Pali use to be. It offers delightful restaurants and bars which line the busy waterfront and the main square, Plateia Petritsi. Lixouri hosts many festivals throughout the year and is known for its rich cultural traditions. It boasts one of the oldest philharmonic schools in Greece. You can visit some atmospheric churches with wonderful frescoes, the archeological museum, neoclassical buildings and the famous Monastery of Kipoureon.

Further north are Assos and Fiskardo, both wonderful day or evening excursions from the villa.  Assos is peaceful and charming with some excellent restaurants and cafes. It is surrounded by luscious green scenery and verdant forests. It offers a mystical atmosphere, almost as though the village is lost in time. Pretty pastel-coloured houses are nestled into the steep hillsides and the castle is a popular visit. On the northern tip of the island, Fiskardo is trendy and chic. Its waterside dining is fabulous and there is a wonderful array of unique boutiques and gift shops. As well as colourful fishing boats in the harbour, you will see many luxury yachts as Fiskardo is definitely one of the places to be in Kefalonia.

The 39 beaches of Kefalonia are fabulous and varied. The astounding Myrtos Beach is one of the most famous and it is a stunner. There are some stunning seafish around the bays so snorkeling is a great option. You can hire boats to discover the coastline and there are watersports available at some beaches.  

Children love visiting the caves of Melissani Lake where a hole in the cave’s roof lets in the sun. It is very mystical and like venturing into another world. The boat trip across the crystal clear lake is such a memorable excursion. The Drogarati Caves are a miracle of nature with orange and yellow stalactites hanging from the roof like curtains. It is an astonishing marvel, more than 150 million years old.

Cycling is popular on Kefalonia. Some of the coastal paths might be a little difficult for young children but there are some magnificent panoramic views and charming villages to stop at. Skala to Mount Aenos is a fabulous ride with generally great conditions. Craggy cliffs, verdant forests and turquoise waters make for an incredible vistas. Mount Aenos is the highest point on the island at 5000 ft. It is also a great place for a hike.

Children always love boat trips. You can visit secluded coves and bays, swimming and snorkeling along the way. It is lovely to head out from one of the harbours at sunset and watch the sun go down. The boat trip over from Argostali to Lixouri is a great trip. You can also hire kayaks to discover the wonderful coastline and caves.
