About the neighbourhood
Metaxata is a pretty little traditional village located in Livatho. The village has lovely colourful gardens and a pretty village square, Metaxata is very appealing and gentle on the eye.. Views to the east give the village real grandeur, with the mighty Mount Enos standing proudly in the distance.
Metaxata is a 15 minute car drive to the capital of Argostoli where you will find an extensive fruit market, meat and fish markets. The southern resorts of Katelios and Skala are about a 40 minute drive. Sami and Aghia Effimia are on the opposite side of the island and take about an hour to drive. Should you wish to venture north there is the famous beach of Myrtos, the beautiful peninsular of Assos and the village of Fiscardo which is popular with the yachting fraternity.
