Lakithra is situated inland amongst pinewoods and olive groves. The ambience is warm and traditional, relaxing and is ideal if you love mountains, the countryside and Greek culture, which is pure. The village is located in the Southwest of the island, approximately 4 miles south of Argostoli, and 2 miles south of Lassi. Although the area is only minutes from the airport it's peaceful scenery is very beautiful with a lot of surrounding countryside of olive groves and fields full of wild flowers. This gives you plenty of space to explore and see some of Kefalonia's amazing scenery.

Villa Mandola is situated in one of the most beautiful villages of Kefalonia, Lakithra. This village was the favourite spot of Lord Byron. The Villa was built in April of 2009. The architecture of the villa is typical of the Seven Islands with an influence from the Venice domination era. The owners John and Mado are a truly wonderful couple who have created a warm and hospitable place for you to stay in an ideal location to be able explore this beautiful island.

On the outskirts of the village a brief stretch of unmade road leads to a new concrete road on your right to the bottom of the hill - it leads to Villa Jomar, which is the new headquarters of Kefalonia Animal Trust.

This registered Greek animal charity, dedicated to caring for the welfare of the dogs, cats and other animals of Kefalonia and Ithaca, founded by Pat & Dave Dolman.
