If peace and quiet and lazy days are your idea of heaven, holidays in Lourdas may be paradise found.
Head south from Kefalonia's capital, Argostoli, and you come to a big and beautiful beach, backed by a restful rural scene. Look to your left, on the hillside above the bay, and you'll see the village of Lourdas. Holidays here really are the best of both worlds – coast and countryside.
Lourdas is a growing village, yet it retains its very traditional way of life. The focal point of the village is still the main square – with its shady plane tree. Tavernas are tucked into the cluster of surrounding streets and there are music bars to while away an evening or two. Summer holidays to Lourdas are rarely restricted to the village itself though … there's that huge sand and pebble beach below. And as it's a fair old climb back up again, you'll be pleased to know that there's a sprinkling of bars and tavernas in the land behind the beach.
For ultra-relaxing self-catering holidays to Lourdas, have a look at the Blue Bay Villa or Kalou
Cottage. Either would make a great base for local exploration – a trip to sandy Trapezaki beach, historic Sission Monastery or to Argostoli's shops and harbour. And you can soon beat a retreat to the hills again for sundowners in your favourite bar. Look for last minute holidays to Lourdas … and prepare to unwind …
