                      Car: Necessary

                      There are many different sand beaches near the villas: Eglina beach (350m), Megali Ammos beach (650m), Spasmata beach (1.3km), Ammes beach (2km), cosmopolitan Makris Gialos water sports beach (5.8km), Platis Gialos beach (5.5km), Avithos beach (5.8km) and Ai Helis beach (4.5km). These beaches have the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. The Minies area is famous for its natural landscapes, It is a rural area with little urban development, where you can go for walks in nature.

                      It is recommended to rent a car for your transportation, as the closest mini markets, tavernas etc are 2km away, in the Ammes beach area. Kefalonia’s picturesque capital, Argostoli (9km), and the seaside resort of Lassi (7km) are 5-10 minutes' drive away. They are the main amenities and entertainment hubs on the island, in terms of watersports, tavernas, bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, hospital, banks, glass bottom boat excursions etc.

                      If you enjoy outdoor activities, such as fishing, yachting, water sports, trekking, caving, canoeing, sea kayaking, motor boat hire, karting, hunting, horse riding, island hopping, diving and bowling or even flying a light aircraft, there will be plenty of opportunities in Kefalonia to indulge in such pursuits.

                      Kefalonia is one of the largest islands in Greece and it will take at least a week to see it properly. During your stay you can visit the Venetian castles of St George and Assos, the picturesque fishing village of Fiscardo, the Melissani and Drogarati Caves at Sami. You will gawp at the view from the monasteries of Kipouria, Themata, Sissia and you will see many picturesque small villages and beaches along the way.

                      You can also go trekking on mount Ainos (1,620m), one of the highest mountains in the Greek Islands and one of ten National Parks in Greece. There is an excellent view from its peak, where in ancient times a temple of the ancient Greek god, Zeus, was situated, according to the ancient Greek author Hesiod.

                      Kefalonia became famous worldwide, since being the background setting of Louis de Bernieres bestselling book ”Captain Corelli's Mandolin' and the ensuing Hollywood film starring Penelope Cruz and Nicholas Cage.

                      If you would like to explore nearby islands with your own car, it is possible to visit Ithaka, Lefkas or Zakynthos from Kefalonia by ferry boat.
