Argostoli Resort description

Argostoli Resort Photo

Argostoli the capital of Kefalonia situated on a peninsular is a busy working port with ferries, private yachts and freight ships coming and going all year round. If you need to buy something this is where you will find it amongst the cosmopolitan pedestrian shopping streets, supermarkets, speciality shops and all manner of other businesses. This is where all the main business is done throughout the year especially when the winter comes and the island almost goes into hibernation! Argostoli still lives on.

As with many waterfront towns there is a hive of activity all along it with tavernas restaurants, shops and an excellent fresh fruit and veg. market open everyday. A series of earthquakes in 1953 flattened Argostoli since when the town has been re- built, following the original street layout, creating a very charming capital. Whether exploring, shopping or having a cold beer by the harbours edge Argostoli is alive and vibrant.

There are several high quality hotels in Argostoli as well as studios and apartments.
This is good base for exploring the island, although Tour Companyís tend to use the nearer resort of Lassi as a holiday base. Argostoli has a lot to offer and is recommended because of the culture and the facilities it has. Glass bottom boat trips are available from the quayside as well as ferries to the mainland and Lixouri.

Can be a bit congested in the peak summer months and the traffic can at times be a bit heavy still nothing as bad as England! No beaches as such these are situated further along the coast in Lassi and small coves out at Finari.
