Koroni is a beautiful sandy beach surrounded by lush vegetation under the village of Thiramonas. The rocks create an impressive background to this golden beach. The way down from a narrow road offers magical views of the Ionian Sea and even to the neighbouring Zakynthos on the clear days! What gives to this beach even more charm is […]
Located at the west of Kefalonia island, Paliki’s name comes from the ancient town of Pali, located at the north of Lixouri, now an archaeological site. Paliki, for some was considered to be the Homeric Ithaca… The peninsula is very different from the rest of Kefalonia, with a unique morphology of flat farmland and vineyards, a […]
This is a charming beach in a unique setting! It stretches 2 km south of Lixouri and 37 km from Agia Efimia. The impressive rock that welcomes you upon arrival creates a beautiful natural background to the beautiful beach and the little lake created by the sea entering from the side. Reddish brown sand with shallow clear waters […]
Kefalonia by Anna suggests… Sesto Bar Sesto bar is located above Koroni beach, a small secluded, sandy beach, 15km from Skala beach. The bar is perched on a hilltop with the most spectacular unspoilt views in Kefalonia and when the atmosphere is clear, Zante island is visible. The best time to come is before the sunset, […]

Breathtaking Sunset! During your day trip to Paliki area, 15km from Lixouri and very close to Platia Ammos, you can find Kipouria Monastery (Moni Kipouraion) built in 1759 by Archimandrite Chrysanthos Petropoulos from Paxos. Its name “Kipouria” comes from the greek word “kipos” (land, vegetable garden) as the monks supported themselves by cultivating all the land around […]
Kefalonia by Anna suggests… Acqua Alaties Restaurant & Bar Around 9km from Fiscardo you can find the beautiful little cove of Alaties and the mediterranean bar-restaurant Acqua Alaties. Drive to the village of Maganos and then follow the signs for Acqua Alaties and Chalikeri. The name Alaties comes from the salt that it dries at small hollows of […]

Love at first sight! Assos is a charming little harbour village located 36 km north of Argostoli and 24km from Agia Efimia, and has less than 100 permanent inhabitants. Tiny and secluded, it is a romantic setting and my favourite shelter, both in winter and summer!
Great beach – breath taking sunset! On your day trip around Paliki peninsula, I recommend you spend an afternoon here. Petani is a magnificent beach, looks a lot like Myrtos (it almost has the same orientation for admiring the beautiful sunset). Located in the beautiful peninsula of Paliki and 13 km away from Lixouri, it […]
Totally Unique! Myrtos is often lauded as one of the most impressive beaches in Greece. In my opinion, Myrtos is far more impressive if viewed from above, as the contrast of its white pebbles with the different shades of colour the sea takes on, due to the currents and the dark green of the area, make the […]
