Lourdas is a resort that is located in one of the largest bays in Kefalonia. There is no real village centre to this place as it is mainly made up of hotels, restaurants, shops and that’s pretty much it. Because of this, it is an excellent alternative to the more popular and busier resorts of Skala and Lassi while still having an excellent beach, facilities and surrounded by luscious greenery.
Budget-friendly holidays to Lourdas are available from most major airports in the UK and since the route is so well-loved by tourists, there is bound to be a departure time that suits you. Lourdas is situated just under half an hour away from Kefalonia International Airport. Make sure you check the Cheekytrip comparison site for more fantastic deals to this part of the world. Flight duration to Kefalonia from most major UK airports is around 3 and a half hours and with this resort less than half an hour connection away, you will be able to get straight into relaxation or beach mode!
The most popular period to visit Lourdas is the spring to autumn period with temperatures often climbing to the high 20s during these months. However, the resort doesn’t get as busy as the likes of Skala and Lassi and other resorts of a similar size. The temperatures drop to around the mid-teens in the winter months and while there will still be a few things to do in the off-season, Lourdas definitely doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer.
Lourdas is the ideal holiday destination for anyone that wants a simple and affordable package holiday to somewhere sunny and pleasant. Most of the hotels have their own swimming pools which can entertain the family for the whole day. Many of them also offer all-inclusive options so you never have to leave the resort. We recommend that you do though, if only to visit the stunning Lourdas Beach. The stretch of sand is about a mile in length and you can easily spend the entire day here topping up your tan or having a dip in the refreshing and beautiful Ionian Sea.
As already touched upon, Lourdas has plenty of accommodation options to choose from, mainly in the form of package-holiday-style hotels. There are, however, some apartments and villas dotted all over the resort too that are available to rent. Lourdas contains some of the best restaurants, cafes and bars that Kefalonia has to offer. Most of them can be found inside the hotel complexes or along the seafront.
