Kekatos Apartments

At the Kekatos Apartments, every room comes with sweeping sea views. From the pool, you can also see Lourdas Beach, which you can reach in only a couple of minutes on foot. The pool’s terrace is a real suntrap and is full of loungers and parasols.

It’s self-catered here and each apartment comes with a kitchenette so you can cook up a storm. You’ll also have a balcony or terrace where you can dine al fresco and make the most of the views. When you don’t feel like cooking, the tavernas of Lourdas are within easy reach.

Overview of Lourdas

Lourdas is a beautiful place for a chilled-out holiday to Kefalonia. Located on the island’s south coast, the resort has largely been untouched by tourism, so it’s traditional and charming. Life’s slow-paced in Lourdas, so expect to enjoy quiet days and relaxing evenings.

At the front of the resort near the Kekatos Apartments, the beaches are interlinked across a sprawling landscape that’s great for wandering. In the evening, expect more relaxation, but you can get to know the locals and dine on Greek specialities in the tavernas.

Things to do in Lourdas

With a stay at the Kekatos Apartments, you’ll have easy access to the village centre and the beach – it offers a safe spot for swimming and holds a Blue Flag. It stretches for over two kilometres, so you’ll never be short of space. It’s even backed by bars and tavernas, so you can grab a drink or a snack and escape the sunshine.

If you love to explore, you’re also close to Mount Ainos, which is the highest mountain in the Ionian Islands. You can even drive most of the way to the top, but the final part of the hike is still a challenge.

Take it easy with a stay in Lourdas. If you’re looking for peace and solitude, then this is the place to be.
