The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities you will require for self catering. The patio doors lead onto the pool area, which is enclosed with a fence and oleander, fruit and date palm trees. A BBQ is located just at the side of the patio area great for outdoor dining. Wifi unlimited internet access is available throughout the villa and around the pool. Flat access parking is immediately adjacent to the front entrance of the villa. The beach at Xi is a 3km long stretch of fine red sand and is especially safe for children or non swimmers with it's shallow water. At the far right end of Xi beach are the clay cliffs, from 20 to 30 meters high. The clay is used by the Greeks for face masks. Kounopetra (Moving Stone) is located along the coast, it is a natural phenomenon, a rock in the sea that moves rhythmicalally. New in 2012 was the water-park at Kounopetra, with four water slides and a bar/restaurant. The water slides are just around the corner about 10 minutes drive away. The Kipouria Monastery, which houses remarkable relics and post-Byzantine icons is perched on a cliff and has stunning views of the sea and the most beautiful sunset on the island and is located around the coastline from Xi beach. For the more adventurous swimmers, Petani about 20 minutes away is great for snorkelling and on some days the waters are calm and flat, whilst on other they roll in onto the shore. The nearest town is Lixouri (about 4 km away) is a modern town with a harbour, wide tree-lined streets and beautiful squares edged with flowers. It is where you will find all the facilities of a traditional working town, such as shops, restaurants and banks. If you enjoy dining by the harbour, Lixouri is the perfect place. Lixouri is the second most important town of Kefalonia, and boasts beautiful buildings, traditional small houses surrounded by flowers, beautiful squares with quaint cafes, and impressive churches. The small passenger/car ferry which takes about 20 minutes runs regularly every hour and will take you across the harbour to the capital Argostoli. Mantzavinata (just up the lane) from the villas has a mini market and coffee bar and also boasts a traditional olive press and a winery. Vatsa (2 km away) is where can find one of the most exotic fish taverns on the island (occasionally the resident ducks may come to visit). The moon shaped sandy beach is about 200 meters long and 12m wide. Near the beach a small river flows into the sea, and it's used by fishing vessels and sport boats as a small harbour.More
