We really enjoyed our holiday in Kefalonia -a truly beautiful island. The accommodation was very traditional which met with most of our requirements and the hosts Sue & Karen, whose accommodation was next door, were warm and welcoming. The position of the villa was excellent...More

We cannot recommend Amigdalospito (Almond House) too highly. Wonderful location in a friendly village within easy distance of some exceptional beaches, excellent tavernas and small towns like Fiscardo and Assos. Karen and Sue could not have been more helpful and kind. Almond House is large,...More

About the neighbourhood
Amigdalospito is situated in the unspoilt north of Kefalonia with its hidden coves and quiet beaches. Fiscardo, popular with the yachting fraternity, is a great place to walk around the harbour, visit the many small shops and cafes along the waters edge. Hire a small boat for the day and explore the small northern beaches and snorkel in the beautiful clear waters. Assos has an imposing Venetian fortress and small beach, ideal for exploring or swimming. The famous Myrtos beach is especially stunning when viewed from the northern cliffs on the road above. Local beaches of Agia Gerousalim and Alaties have amazing swimming, snorkelling and good tavernas with excellent food. Other beaches can be found within 10-15 mins drive from the house.
Getting around
The bus service is somewhat limited on Kefalonia and so car hire is adviseable when staying at Amigdalospito (Almond House). We use a local car hire company and can organise this for you.
There is a local electric bike hire company so you can comfortably explore the hilly roads. For the more energetic ordinary bike hire is available from Argostoli the islands capital and they can be delivered to you here.
For exploring the coastal areas of the north there are a couple of boat hire companies in nearby Fiscardo.

How to get there
Airport: Argostoli: 45.0 km
Ferry: Sami: 10.0 km
Most people arrive on Kefalonia (or Cephalonia) by charter flights during the summer months. British airways have recently started a scheduled flight from Heathrow. Others come by sea from Patras on the mainland to Sami. During the summer there are regular ferries and flights from Italy. Also there is a small hopper plane Sky Express which flies connecting the Ionian Islands and a new foot passenger ferry has just started linking all the Ionian islands.
The drive from the airport to Amigdalospito is about an hour and a stop at the top of the cliffs at Myrtos beach is recommended.
