Unwind in the sleepy village of Svoronata, a holiday destination bathed in peace and tranquilly where you can truly get away from it all. Sitting on the southwest coast of Kefalonia, the lush countryside backdrop is made up of verdant greenery and rolling hills. The quiet streets are covered with whitewashed buildings and family-run tavernas with vines and flowers climbing up the walls, giving you a glimpse into the local Greek way of life. With a string of idyllic sandy beaches just a short walking distance away, lazy beach days are the top activity on the itinerary at Svoronata. Dinnertime can be spent tucking into some authentic Greek cuisine or listening to the waves lapping the sand at a beachfront restaurant overlooking the glistening seascape. For a livelier nightlife where you can dance until the early hours of the morning, the nearby town of Lassi is just a 10-minute taxi ride away.
The location is perfect for exploring the best sights of the island, offering an ideal base for exploration with somewhere to unwind in the evenings. Step back in time to the time of the Renaissance with a visit to the striking St George’s Castle, which is just a short drive away. For some more history, head to Argostoli to admire spectacular ancient architecture, fascinating art galleries, and quaint souvenir shops selling handmade gifts and trinkets. Immerse yourself in the breath-taking nature with a hike up Mount Ainos or delve into the rural vineyards with a wine-tasting tour. You’ll find some water sports along the beachfront, but drive to Lassi and splash away with sailing, jet skiing, and snorkelling.
