Activities

All our villas are all located in the unique Paliki peninsula, in the west of Kefalonia. Our area is rather different to the rest of the island. We have a dramatic west coast (with the best sunsets on the island), over 40 stunning beaches (some sandy, some pebbles and others rocky), and the charming, local town of Lixouri.

When you book with us we will send you an up-to-date guide to the area. But to whet your appetite, here are some of our (and our customers’) favourite things to do. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing week on the beach, or an action-packed holiday, we’re always here to help you make the best of your stay with us.

Enjoy the town of Lixouri

Sip a coffee in the Platia with a locally-made ice-cream, enjoy some of the best restaurants and nightlife on the island, browse the many boutiques, or (if you must), hop on the ferry that shuttles back and forth to Argostoli, well into the night in the summer season. Lixouri has all the amenities you would expect in a town; pharmacies, medical centres, banks,etc.

Explore the beaches

Some of the best-known beaches on the island are within a 30 minute drive of our houses; Petani, Atheras, Xi, Megas Lakos and Lepeda, to name just a few. Find quiet coves for relaxing, exciting watersports, dramatic waves, and clear pools for snorkeling. Some are accessible only by boat - this makes a wonderful day out!

Experience the cuisine

In addition to Lixouri, there are many places to eat in the area, with excellent restaurants dotted around the mountain villages or coastal areas. Try the local delicacies, washed down with wine from one of the numerous local wineries. Some of our favourites are listed in the guide you will receive.

Adventure on the sea

Surrounded by water in all directions, the peninsula is perfect for exploring by boat. You’ll find opportunities for fishing tours, kayaking, play on SUPs, water-skiing and diving. And for those who prefer to be in fresh water, we even have a waterpark!

The dramatic scenery is criss-crossed with hikes

Climb into the cooler mountain areas, explore the rugged coastline with the unforgettable views from Kipouria Monastery, or visit the diverse area of Livadi; paradise for bird-watchers. Some of the best beaches are accessible by foot or boat only - a real treat when you reach the end of the path!

Or just relax

We can help you arrange massage therapists, yoga instruction and even a private chef.
