Kefalonia: save up to £350 on gorgeous villas in June

June on Kefalonia means sunny days up to 26 degrees*, un-crowded beaches and direct flights from eleven UK airports – and with Freelance Holidays policy of ‘any day arrival, any length of stay’ this is a great opportunity to mix and match cheap flights with flexible villa rental to create a bargain holiday!


For example, Villa Penelope on the Liakas peninsula is reduced from £349 per night to £299 per night, saving £50 per night or £350 on a seven-night hire from 14 June.


This villa sleeps six (three bedrooms, three shower rooms) and while the interior is as smart and modern as anyone could wish, it is the outdoor living space that packs the biggest punch: virtually 270-degree sea views, with a large private pool surrounded by a furnished sun terrace; a shady pergola on the edge of the bluff, a covered terrace with sofa set and swing seat; a BBQ dining terrace, and a rear balcony with cushioned seating offering a book-lover’s retreat from the sun.


The icing on the cake is a footpath from the villa down to a level rock platform beside the Ionian Sea, from which it’s possible to bathe; a more conventional sandy beach is no more than five minutes’ drive away.


An hour along the coast Villa Seagull also enjoys a sea-facing spot, and is reduced to £199 per night (for six people), saving £40 per night or £280 on any seven nights between 2 and 20 June. Its proximity to the laid-back family resort of Skala (just over a kilometre away) makes this the perfect villa for those who like to eat out as much as they may enjoy self-catering in the modern kitchen, or barbecuing on the dining terrace.


Other discounted villas include Poseidon (sleeping six) and Yianna (sleeping four), both with savings of £140 off seven nights’ rental throughout June.


This is a fantastic time to holiday on Kefalonia: fewer families mean more space on fabulous beaches like Myrtos, Skala and Xi. The sights are less busy too: visit Melissani Cave where the sun breaks through the roof to light up a turquoise lake, or watch loggerhead turtles gather around the fishing boats, looking for fishy scraps in Argostoli harbour.

Toddler-friendly Kefalonia for early Summer Sun

Mediterranean villa specialist Freelance Holidays is highlighting Kefalonia as ideal for toddlers and their families in May and June.

Direct flights from seven UK airports and a flying time of less than 2 ½ hours, combined with average temperatures of 18-23C makes this quintessentially Greek island ideal (grandparents love it too) for early summer sun.

Cots and high chairs can be supplied by Freelance Holidays; a starter grocery pack pre-ordered, bed linen and towels are provided as standard and end-of-holiday housekeeping is included, plus there’s 24-hour support during the holiday. Car hire can be arranged.

As to flights, which Freelance Holidays does not organise, young families can take advantage of its any-day-arrival-any-length-of-stay policy to mix and match low-cost flights to create a budget holiday.

Hand-picked villas on Kefalonia – each with air-conditioning and free WiFi – include:

Villa Fiscardo View – with jaw-dropping sea views on three sides, the villa is only 10 minutes’ drive from the chic harbour village and provides accommodation for six in a modern villa which blends local materials of pale stone, wood beams and pastel-washed plaster with contemporary design.   May dates start at just £99 per night, making a week’s holiday as little as £693 for up to six.

Villa Levanda – on a hillside at Katsarata, this beautiful villa has plenty of space for a family of five and wonderful sea views. Two doubles (the master is ensuite and has its own balcony) and a single bedroom are upstairs, as is an upper terrace positioned to catch the last rays of the sun. At pool level, a chill-out area is well-furnished while the front terrace, close to the kitchen, acts as a second dining area.  As well as the ensuite and a family bathroom upstairs, there’s a ground floor shower room.  May dates start at just £92 per night, making a week’s holiday as little as £644 for up to five.

Villa Mandola – 10 minutes’ drive from Fiscardo, this large sugar-pink villa enjoys a quiet spot with jaw-dropping views down the hillside to the bluest of seas.  This is a spacious villa, with an L-shaped living space and a generous kitchen at the ‘short’ end of the L.  Three sets of doors open onto the poolside terrace which is furnished for outdoor living.  Upstairs, three bedrooms (one double, two twins, all ensuite) sit beneath vaulted wooden ceilings.  May dates start at just £99 per night, making a week’s holiday as little as £693 for up to six.
