Villa Amelia is located in the village of Metaxata, a small traditional village with many beautiful gardens. It is a 10 minute drive to the capital Argostoli & the popular resort of Lassi. There are many beaches within an 8/15 mins drive: Avithos, a blue flag beach, is just 8 minutes by car. In 1823, Lord Byron stayed in Metaxata for several months. He was inspired by the natural beauty of the village and the pleasant demeanour of the locals. He wrote many poems praising this wonderful place.His statue stands in the central square of Metaxata. The village has one mini- market which is 5 minutes walk from the villa. Lakithra, the next village 1km away, has a few mini-markets, a bakery and a taverna which is very popular with the locals. There is also a cake shop which has a sinful array of pastries, for those of us who are weak! The villa is well positioned to explore the island. Metaxata along with neighbouring Kourkoumelata is one of the islands most picturesque areas.
