Hi UkErictina, only read your post curious to see why no one had replied as it's posted in the Lourdas forum. Might be better to re post under Cephalonia to get more response. Being a bit biased I'd go for Lassi which has great sandy beaches, a good & wide choice of restaurants & tavernas & is close to Argostoli. Good planning

I would definitely go for Lourdas, but then I am totally biased like everyone else here!!

Lourdas is the area behind Lourdas bay and includes Trapezaki, Vlachata and Lourdata (as well as several other villages, but these three are the ones with the tourist accommodation).

The beach is about 2½ Km long and mainly sandy. Lourdata and Trapezaki are close to the beach, Vlachata about 1½ Km from the beach.

All three have a good selection of bars and restaurants. Vlachata has supermarkets with a wide selection of goods and is used by the locals when they don't wish to go to Argostoli for a major shopping expedition.

Lourdas is about 15-20 minutes from Argostoli by car or taxi.

Some general information can be found at http://www.lourdataholidays.co.uk/

Now it leave it to others to tell you about their favourite places!

I would go Lourdas area also as booked for a month next year and stayed in that are for last 7 times in Kefalonia. Like scala as well and also Katelios are. Love Kamenia beach so sandy and water very shallow.

Depends what your looking for but all main areas are good . Lassi near to Argostoli easy walking distance and not far from airport as few beaches which I think are to commercial.

Hi UkEricTina

Only thing against Lourdas area is you would really need to hire a car if there for two weeks. Unless of course you intend to spend all the time on the beach or in a café/bar or taverna.
