Kefalonia International Airport (EFL)
Avithos is the ideal choice for your Greek Island holiday if you are looking for fabulous beaches, great tavernas, beautiful coastal and mountain scenery, easy walking on quiet country lanes but still just a short drive to the island's capital.
Situated on the southern coast of Kefalonia, just a few kilometres from the airport and Argostoli, Ai Avithos is located in the area known locally as Leivathos – made up of picturesque villages and some gorgeous sandy beaches. There are also a good few attractions in this area such as the Castle of St.George, atop its acropolis and offering superb views all over the area – well worth a visit as is the Monastery of St. Andreas.
Avithos beach is a long strip of sand, with some shingle or stones depending on the weather of the previous winter – looking out to the tiny islet of Zeus and backed by two excellent tavernas where locally delicacies and fresh fish can be enjoyed. The beach itself offers a super beach bar with snacks, cold drinks and coffees, and comfortable sunbeds are available to rent. The village of Svoronata – just a 15 minute walk from Avithos offers more restaurants, a couple of bars, a petrol station and the local minimarket so all necessities are close to hand. Even the local “drive in” in supermarkets are all within a short drive of this area, but once back at your villa all is peace and quiet whilst you just enjoy the wonderful views!
This was our second visit to Villa Polymnia. The swimming pool is the best I've ever had at a villa and made a real positive difference to our holiday. The villa location is also great - feeling secluded despite being a short (10 min) walk from the beach and restaurants.
Unfortunately, the internet connection was consistently very poor which was frustrating. I would not recommend this villa if internet is important to you.

Fantastic villa in a very quiet location. Amazing space inside and out, and the Grandchildren loved the pool. The kitchen was well equipped with 2 fridge\freezers. We would certainly not hesitate to return hopefully next year.

The villa was great. The only improvements would be the water pressure on the showers which is very low and very slow Wi-Fi.

Perfectly located in a quiet area, with an incredible pool and beautiful gardens. Two wonderful restaurants and an amazing little supermarket within a 15 minute walk. We’ll definitely be back!

First time in this Villa and will return. All as described, plenty of room. Master bedroom bed was too firm so for those who need it this would be perfect. A very relaxing, peaceful trip. As ever Samantha the rep was amazing.

Nice villa in a very convenient location to explore the island. The villa was well prepaired and maintained during our stay by the cleaner and the very friendly pool man. Your rep Samantha must be a great asset to your company as she goes the extra mile to ensure every thing is perfect and provides all the information required on the island and location the best rep I have come across.

The villa is ideally located with lovely views in a quiet location. Anna & Ellie the new cleaners are fantastic, the villa is kept beautifully clean. The pool is great. We e been 3 times now we love it so much. Please note however the property located next to the villa is in the process of building a further house very close to villa polymnia. Steps will be needed to ensure the privacy is maintained, probably just allowing the established teees & shrubs to grow higher will be enough.

Close to beach, neighbours with free range eggs, large swimming pool, peaceful surroundings with excellent views and friendly cat to keep you company. Could not be better.

This excellent villa is in a quiet setting but still within easy reach of restaurants and a fine beach. The standard of the gardens and interior are very high.

Villa Polymenia is stunning. Perfectly positioned for panoramic views. Large, airy and spacious. The fact that all main rooms have the pull over nets to prevent mosquitos in the hot season is great. You can leave all doors and windows open without worrying about being bitten. The 15 metre pool is amazing. There are at least 4 good restaurants within walking distance & a local shop selling essentials with very helpful, friendly staff. Lovely quiet area but not far to walk to the local beach. Absolutely beautiful!
