Lakithra is a traditional Greek village with a bakery, kafeneion, some taverns and a few pretty churches. High in the hills above the Kato Livatho area, is the spectacular panoramic rural and coastal view which inspired Lord Byron during his stay in Metaxata. The south-west beaches from Lassi to Lourdas are all easily accessible by car. The international airport is only a few minutes drive away.
The appeal of Lakithra lies in its proximity to Argostoli and local sandy beaches. There are fabulous rural and sea views and it has a traditional village ‘feeling’. Although it is a sleepy village off season, unlike many of the tourist resorts it stays functional during the winter months which makes Lakithra an excellent choice of village in which to live.
The village of Lakithra is a settlement of traditional homes and villas, known for its advantageous location and mild climate. Here -on a magnificent lush site with unhindered views of Argostoli and its bay and across to the impressive high peaks of Mt. Aenos and within 6 minutes from the island's capital- it is the choice location for constructing residences appropriate for permanent residence or holiday quarters.
Lakithra is an ideal base for excursions and visits to any destination on the island. Some of Kefalonia's prettiest beaches are in the Lakithra vicinity including Avithos, Ai Helis and Ammes in Livatho and Makris and Platis Gialos towards Argostoli. Other beaches, such as Karavados, Pessada, and Lourdas are only a short drive away.
