Svoronata, Cephalonia, Ionian Islands
Herakles 1. is a spacious two bedroom family Villa, sleeping 6 people, Free WiFi, Fully Air-Conditioned, set in a tranquil location in one of the most picturesque areas of Kefalonia, the traditional village of Metaxata. The Villa has a spectacular swimming pool (shared) with Mountain views.
Metaxata has a small shop and a Souvlaki bar. A short walk through olive groves brings you to a lovely taverna. There is a limited bus service from the village to Argostoli, but car hire is recommended to make the most of this beautiful island.

A holiday with two young children (1 & 3) shouldn't be relaxing, but you can't fail to relax here.

The greatest plus has to be the pool which is a fantastic size and, on some days, we had...
