Things to do
There are many things to do in the local area.
Coasts and Beaches:
Alaties, Jeruselum, Dafnoudi, Emblisi and Foki beach are all within 5 minutes drive. Dafnoudi beach does involve a stroll through very pretty woodland in order to reach it but is well worth the effort.
Fiscardo, a picturesque fishing harbour is a 10 minute drive where you will find a fine selection of Tavernas and local shops.
Should you wish to explore further afield, Sami, which is the main port on the island, is a 40 minute drive and from here you can get a ferry to the mainland. Also not too far from Sami is the underground lake of Melissani and the Drogarati caves. Myrtos beach, which is stunning, is about 20 minutes drive from the villa and can be seen from the coast road as you drive from the airport to the villa.
Banks and main supermarkets are in Argostoli but you can get general groceries locally in Manganos, about a 5 minute walk away. Local Tavernas are very good and the people very friendly. There is a medical center in Vassilikiades, about 15 minutes drive away.
A cashpoint is available in Fiskardo.
Small boat hire and PADI scuba diving is available from Fiskardo.
Twice a year the Patron Saint of the island, St Gerasimos is celebrated. This is in August and October and you should know that shops are generally closed on this day.
