Villa specialist launches video guide to Kefalonia Beaches

Mediterranean island villa specialist Freelance Holidays has created a video guide to Kefalonia’s beaches and nominated its five favourite beaches.

The four-minute video captures 18 of the island’s beaches as well as key locations like Fiscardo port and St Gerasimos monastery.

“‘Kefalonia – the Movie’ is our first video beach guide,” says managing director Paul Fogg. “Film is by far the best way to show potential customers specific locations of our villas and we’re gradually building a comprehensive video library of our Med islands.”

The company’s top five recommendations for Kefalonia beaches are:

  1. Katelios Beach on the southern tip. “Our perfect day is a morning on Katelios, a fish lunch at one of the restaurants, then walk around the headland to Kamina beach. Turtles lay eggs here in June and July, which hatch between August and the end of September.” Villa Poseidonia sits in a lush garden five minutes’ walk from Katelios seafront. Seven nights’ rental of the three-bedroom villa costs from £905.
  2. Antisamos Beach on the east coast. “Famous thanks to the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin and with good reason: pale blue sea and white pebbles backed by sweet-smelling pines.” Set above the fishing port of Sami, just a short drive from Antisamos is Villa Nireaus, a two-bedroom villa for four. A week here starts at £973.
  3. Foki Beach, south of Fiscardo. “A picture-perfect inlet with trees running down to the shingle, turquoise water and a beach taverna.” Contemporary Villa Vassilis is a three-bedroom (sleeps six) villa just three kilometres away, with glorious sea views, from £1183 for seven nights.
  4. Skala Beach. “This long popular sweep of coarse white sand has plenty of sunbeds and parasols to hire and great facilities from water-sports to beach bars.” At the north end of the beach, Villa Korfos has three ensuite double bedrooms ideal for couples holidaying together. It has fabulous sea views, with a week from £903 for six people.
  5. Amandakiss or Rock Beach, near Spartia. “This natural rock platform offers guests at our villas on the Liakis headland a private beach experience, since there’s no ‘through’ traffic or sand to attract day visitors. The perfect spot for snorkelling.” Villa Penelope is one of 15 individual villas offered here. It’s a truly luxurious villa with jaw-dropping views over the sea and a footpath to the rock beach. A week starts at £1393 for six people.

Other offers include savings of £279 on week-long holidays from 10 June in Athina, where seven nights are now priced at £739.  The villa sleeps four in two bedrooms (one en suite) and has glorious views across the treetops to the Ionian Sea.  In its gardens there is a private pool, plus sun and dining terraces.  A 10-minute drive leads to Maganos village with its shops and local tavernas as well as the pretty shingle beach at St Jerusalem.

Or a week from 19 June at Rosepetra – enjoying superb sea views and within walking distance of the village of Maganos with its traditional taverna – now costs £1154, a reduction of £244.  The villa, 3.2 kms from Alaties beach, sleeps five in three bedrooms (one en suite) and in its gardens there is a private pool, outdoor shower, plus open and shaded terraces.
