Lixouri holidays take you a very pleasant town on a quiet peninsula across the bay from Argostoli and Lassi. Although the town has a long history, in common with most of Kefalonia, the historic buildings were destroyed in the severe earthquake of 1953. Popular with families and couples, Lixouri is a peaceful town where the atmosphere remains traditional and the pace of life is slow. A holiday here is the perfect antidote to the hectic pace of twenty-first century living. Visitors are guaranteed cloudless skies, warm, clear water and have a choice of beaches. Lepeda beach with its reddish sand, claims to be one of the best in the area and provides safe conditions for youngsters. Other beaches nearby offer water sports. There are boats in the harbour offering excursions around the island and there is a ferry to the capital Argostoli. The main square, Platia Petritsi, with its small bars and cafes is an inviting place to spend an afternoon or evening, browsing the gift shops or simply watching the locals going about their daily lives. If you are looking for an oasis of calm surrounded by an unspoiled landscape, a low cost Lixouri holiday may be just the ticket.
Lixouri holidays have accommodation to satisfy most budgets. Hotels and apartments provide comfort and good service and comprehensive amenities. You'll always receive a warm and friendly wecome. Be sure to check the cost of the all-inclusive board basis. When they are discounted, they can offer excellent value. This is especially so when travelling with children as the cost of meals and refreshments can be considerable. The many restaurants, tavernas, cafes and bars provide a wide choice of menu and cater for even the most conservative British palate. It is always possible to find familiar food. If you are new to the flavours of Greece, order Meze, the equivalent of Spanish tapas, and you'll receive a selection of delicate morsels, ideal for tasting. Lixouri is a relaxed resort and evenings are no exception. Although there are a couple of lively bars and discos which are open into the early hours, for the most part the resort sleeps at night. If you are an ardent shopper, you'll need to take the ferry across the bay to Argostoli, the island's principal town, as local shops are fairly limited.
Lixouri holidays can be taken from April until Ocober with temperatures rising to thirty in the height of summer. Several budget airlines fly direct from regional airports to Kefalonia. You can check on the Cheeky Trip website to see if there are flights from your own local airport. Transfers to the resort take roughly ninety minutes.
