A kaleidoscope of lush greenery, azure Ionian Sea and colorful culture.

Few islands are as inviting as Kefalonia, a sand-fringed escape with endless kilometers of pristine beaches. The island is alive with exotic beauty, glorious beaches, spectacular trails, and quaint fishing villages.

You could happily while your days away in the island with its neoclassical architecture and laid-back atmosphere. Or venture out on a day trip to experience Kefalonia at its wildest and most wonderful, where you’ll find mysterious ruins, hidden caves, pristine sea sides, serene traditional villages and the world’s best beach, before returning to the luxury of your villa.

Situated at the south-west coast of Kefalonia, the village of Svoronata is set among the fertile valleys and rolling hills of the Livathos region. The village has retained much of its old-world charm, thanks to the sleepy winding streets and colorful gardens. Homely holiday villas dot the outskirts, surrounded by rambling olive groves and perfectly-plotted fruit orchards.

And if you take a 5-minute drive, you’ll find 3 sandy beaches – Ammes, Avithos and Ai Helis. The sinuous coastline serves up for this trio of beaches. Towering headlands bookend Ai Helis Beach, a sheltered scoop of sand strung with volleyball nets. Avithos Beach, meanwhile, has shallow, child-friendly waters, uncrowded sands and a taverna. Ammes Beach is the quietest of the lot and comes well-stocked with sun loungers.

Ditch your shoes and pinch yourself – this is an island utopia waiting to be discovered!
