Choice for accommodation:
1st day, Get familiarized with your area visiting some of the best sights on the island. After a generous breakfast with local products that can be ordered in advance and a morning swim at the villa, around 11.30 you can head off to Melissani Lake. At the end of the tour you can either stop for horse riding or donkey trekking or drive direct to Antisamos beach, where you can relax on the free sunbeds and enjoy a snack, get a massage or a drink by the sea. At the beach, there is a variety of watersport activities to choose from, like Jet Ski, Wakeboard / Kneeboard, Water Ski, Tubes / Sliders, Banana Boat, Crazy Sofa, S.U.P, Windsurfing, Snorkeling, Canoe, Pedal Boat or just go for a mini cruise in the nearby beaches. Pop into IN Gallery to shop for fine art and tasteful gifts, just off the main square in Sami. You can finish your day with a nice dinner at one of our proposed restaurants in Sami or Agia Efimia or have us organised a special meal from the chef at the villa.
2nd day, if you wake up early, I would suggest a quick swim at Myrtos beach (you will be surprised as it is the only time of day that it is calm and you can enjoy this beauty on your own ) and then get a breakfast at Agia Efimia‘s little harbor cafes. If you prefer to start your day a bit later you can stop for a swim at one of the beaches between Sami and Agia Efimia and then drive to Assos village. There depending on the temperature and the time you can first have a swim, have lunch, or a snack and when it is a bit cooler climb up to Assos castle and explore it (this is one of my favourite walks!). It is a special location and you can get amazing views of both the village as well as the breathtaking sunset (if you get at the west of the peninsula). The tour would be nice as well on the other way round, so you start with Assos and end up at Myrtos beach to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
3-4 day, I suggest sailing with a crewed motor yacht chartering that combines the service and friendliness of an elegant hotel with complete freedom to explore amazing landscape, beaches and villages without ever worrying about the crowds. If you want the exhilaration of being on the water with the wind in your hair, freedom to explore, privacy, service, pampering, great food and well-mixed drinks, then I highly recommend a crewed luxury motor yacht. You can visit the neighbouring islands like Zante, Ithaca and Lefkas or just sail around Kefalonia. The Ionian sea has many beautiful places to visit such as Vathi and Frikes on the legendary island of Ithaca, the birthplace of Odysseus. Sami, Agia Efimia, and Fiscardo on Kefalonia. Meganisi with the ports of Little Vathi and Spartochori, and also Nidri, Sivota and Lefkas town on the island of Lefkas. You can also sail around the island of Scorpios, previously owned by the Onassis family and now owned by a Russian tycoon or just moor in different secluded bays and dine aboard under the stars.
5th day Fiscardo, the cosmopolitan, picturesque village with a wide selection of restaurants and services, (fish spa, diving, massage or reiki and shopping). If you like walking there are many signed foot paths to choose from, an easy, still beautiful choice is to walk to the Byzantine Basilika of Fiscardo you see on the opposite side of the bay. There are many beautiful beaches nearby to choose from like Foki beach, Dafnoudi beach (if you want to walk for approx 1km in a dreamy shaded path). You can finish your day driving to Alaties beach late afternoon for a quick swim and a cocktail at Acqua Alaties bar-restaurant with unique sunset views. Check out Bond viveur for an authentic taste of Kefalonian products and arrange a personal chef to prepare a special menu for tonight’s dinner at the villa just for you!
6th day, I suggest you spend this day around the area of the capital Argostoli, take the road from Sami not from Divarata. If you want to visit the religious center of Kefalonia, stop at the monastery of Saint Gerassimos. You can then visit one of the wineries nearby (check our wine tours menu) for tasting and purchase. If you want to climb to the highest mountain of the Ionian islands, drive up to mount Ainos, the panoramic views from such a height will astonish you! Another option would be to drive to Saint George Castle and get a drink at Kastro Cafe or Il Borgo Restaurant . Once you arrive at Argostoli (select sights from my tour of Argostoli), visit Katavothres (one of the strange phenomena), swim at Platis Gialos. If you want to relax and get an aromatherapy treatment or reflexology or massage check in at Kefalonia massage. Relaxed you can now enjoy you dinner at one of the restaurants in Argostoli.
7th day you can choose either Skala village and beach or explore Paliki peninsula, visiting Xi beach (great beach ideal for kids with watersports and beach bars) and lunch and swim at Vatsa or Petanoi beach (and with your bathing suit get a simple lunch at Erasmias beach taverna and drink a cold beer enjoying one of the best sunset spots in the island!). If you feel adventurous and need more exploration stop instead at Kipouria Monastery for amazing sunset and get a glimpse of Platia Ammos, my favourite beach from above as it is accessible only by boat!
