About the neighbourhood
Amigdalospito is situated in the unspoilt north of Kefalonia with its hidden coves and quiet beaches. Fiscardo, popular with the yachting fraternity, is a great place to walk around the harbour, visit the many small shops and cafes along the waters edge. Hire a small boat for the day and explore the small northern beaches and snorkel in the beautiful clear waters. Assos has an imposing Venetian fortress and small beach, ideal for exploring or swimming. The famous Myrtos beach is especially stunning when viewed from the northern cliffs on the road above. Local beaches of Agia Gerousalim and Alaties have amazing swimming, snorkelling and good tavernas with excellent food. Other beaches can be found within 10-15 mins drive from the house.
Getting around
The bus service is somewhat limited on Kefalonia and so car hire is adviseable when staying at Amigdalospito (Almond House). We use a local car hire company and can organise this for you. There is a local electric bike hire company so you can comfortably explore the hilly roads. For the more energetic ordinary bike hire is available from Argostoli the islands capital and they can be delivered to you here. For exploring the coastal areas of the north there are a couple of boat hire companies in nearby Fiscardo.
