Just a short drive from the capital of Kefalonia, Argostoli is the small hamlet of Farsa. Overlooking the coastline, the Bay of Argostoli and Luxouri, Farsa boasts a small beach (Ligia) of rich sand and white pebbles where you can find umbrellas and sunbeds.
The original village, located above the coastal road was largely destroyed in the earthquake in 1953; some ruined buildings remain as a reminder. Along the coastal road newer dwellings with a mini market, local kafeneion (local café bar) a simple grill room and a few more local tavernas and restaurants open during the summer months. Just 6 kilometres from Farsa is the bridge going across to Argostoli (total distance if you drive around the Lake of is 9 kilometres). On clear summer evenings the walk across this foot bridge is a joy and takes you onto the water front walkway of Argostoli from where you can easily reach all the shops, bars, cafés and restaurants of the capital.
A short drive to the north will bring you to the cross roads to Aghia Kyriaki and Zola; two glorious beaches ideal for a day on the beach and swimming in the crystal waters. The “shack” tavern at Aghia Kyriaki is a favourite with locals and visitors alike – serving the fresh catch of the day with vegetables from their garden. A 30 minute drive from Farsa will bring you to the world famous beach of Myrtos and the village of Divarata where visitors will find a small selection of restaurants and cafés.
