With mountain views, beach coves, authentic tavernas and fun daytrips, Karavados holidays are Greece at its best.

Dreamy destination

Karavados is a tiny village set in the south of the Greek island of Kefalonia. Picture traditional whitewashed houses, a scarlet church and a laidback atmosphere. It's hugged by mountains and a stretch of flat coast, so you get the best of both worlds when it comes to views.

Delights for daytrippers

There are plenty of options for daytrips around. After a 10-minute drive to Pesada, you can jump on a ferry to Zante's white cliffs and turquoise sea caves. For some retail therapy, a 15-minute drive will get you to Argostoli – Kefalonia's capital – where you'll find an array of shops, bars and restaurants.

Sparkling seas

The lush surroundings and sandy shores of nearby Agios Thomas Beach make it a picture-perfect spot for sunbathing – and the scenery along the 25-minute walk from Karavados make it all the better. Crystal-clear waters are just right for snorkelling and spying on sea life, and the little taverna can sort you out with beachside beers.
