Lourdas, sometimes also known as Lourdata is set against a steep hillside and in one of the largest bays on Kefalonia so you’ll definitely need your walking shoes on if you want to explore the area. It’s just under half an hour from the airport and around the same to the capital Argostoli.
There’s no real village centre in Lourdas, just a collection of hotels, restaurants and shops dotted about around the road side and down by the beach. For this reason we’d recommend it for those that want to get away from the most popular tourist resorts of Lassi or Skala but still want a good beach and plenty of amenities, all enclosed by lush green surroundings.
Lourdas would also suit those people that want a simple package holiday as it has a fair number of hotels and apartments with swimming pools, restaurants and bars so you never need to leave the grounds, unless you venture out to the beach that is.
One of the best reasons to visit Lourdas is the fabulous Lourdas beach which is about a mile long and has loads of beach side tavernas for snacks, drinks and meals so you can easily spend the entire day there topping up your tan or enjoying the gorgeous Ionian sea.
Another good reason is that you are not too far from the capital or other villages in the south of the island so you can explore the region with ease. Getting to the northern parts of the island and round to the Paliki peninsular is a bit more of a drive but easily done if you want to.
