Kefalonia Lixouri

Information about Lixouri

Lixouri Kefalonia: Lixouri is the second largest village of Kefalonia, located 35 km west of Argostoli. Today, it counts on 3000 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in agriculture and tourism. The town lies around the blue bay of Argostoli overlooking the capital. Regular ferries connect the two destinations. The beautiful town of Lixouri was built on the site where the ancient city of Pali used to be, one of the four principal cities of Kefalonia during Antiquity. Due to the major earthquake of 1953 the city was destroyed and only a couple of mansions survived and can still be seen today.

    Really quaint marina
    We have been to Lixouri 5 times and am just about to leave for the sixth on September 03. The town is really quaint never a lot of tourists as it is the resort the Greeks go on holiday. There is a large 4star hotel in the resort but otherwise you can find a lot of inexpensive self catering or Bed and Breakfast accommodation. The town square is the main focal point for the village. During the day it is very quiet but come nightfall all the locals come out with their children and sit i n the square, have a drink and just talk the night away. If you are looking for nightclubs Lixouri is not the place to go but if you like to relax eat very good food at reasonable prices and just watch the world go by from the town square or marina, then Lixouri is the place for you.
