Pendant lighting adds depth, while the space is decorated in calming tones with natural light streaming through the floor to ceiling windows. There are so many choices for dining - around the table in the spacious kitchen, up at the breakfast bar, or out on the terrace.

Villa Kalokairi LocationKefalonia, the largest of the Ionian islands, is a fantastic destination for a family holiday. Villa Kalokairi is nestled in a quiet village, enveloped in nature yet not too far from the bustling town square and quaint alleyways in Lixouri. The village is called Chavriata and known as the Balcony of the Ionian, because of its panoramic views of the lowlands and the gleaming sea. The airport is located 50km away by car, or a 14km drive and a 30-minute ferry.
The second largest town on Kefalonia, Lixouri has an old port and a welcoming, quaint atmosphere. The main square by the port is bordered on three sides by lovely cafes, bars and tavernas. Check out the Jacobean-era Lahovatios Library, where you can marvel at rare books and manuscripts that once belonged to the aristocracy. In town, pick up some local honey and one of the island's famous soaps made from extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs.
Kefalonia is home to heavenly beaches all around the island. Two of the most spectacular are Xi and Petani beach. Red-sand Xi beach is so unique - framed with sand cliffs and bright red clay that visitors can use for a DIY spa moment. The water is warm and shallow, perfect for swimming. Petani beach has white pebbles and crystalline blue water. Many visitors dive into the sea by jumping off the large rock at the eastern end.
Melissani Cave is a beauty spot ideal for nature enthusiasts with two intriguing chambers. There's a light cave illuminated by a hole in the ceiling, with gorgeous blue-green water and a dark cave with fascinating stalagmites. The cave is surrounded by lush forestry and is also known as the Cave of the Nymphs, in part because of the imagery of nymphs inside the cave. There are also clay figures that can be observed inside the chambers.
Greek food is notoriously fresh and delicious. The best place to sample some local fare is at a traditional taverna. Guests can tuck into some tasty moussaka - layers of minced meat and tomato sauce with aubergine and creamy bechamel sauce, baked like a lasagne. Another dish to try is souvlaki, which is skewered meat and sometimes vegetables, grilled to perfection. Examples of local delicacies on Kefalonia are mandola, consisting of roasted almonds and sugar with local seaweed, which gives the snack a red hue. Riganada is a tasty dish made from bread slices with oregano and feta cheese.
Kipouri is a beautiful and famous monastery on Kefalonia. It is also known as 'Land of the Vegetables' after the monks that used to take care of the garden. Inside, discover ancient artefacts and religious imagery. Dramatically overhanging a 100m high cliff, this monastery has an expansive courtyard that is a fantastic seat for the region's amazing sunsets. Take your place and watch the skylight on fire.
