Avithos resort is an apartment style hotel built in the traditional Kefalonian style, set in spacious gardens and grouped around a large freshwater swimming pool. The resort is located in southern Kefalonia close to Avithos beach, 10km away from Argostoli. This is a lovely, fertile region where olive trees and citrus orchards abound. The coastline faces the tiny island of Dias and offers magnificent views to the island of Zakynthos across the channel. The resort's location makes an ideal setting for a peaceful and tranquil holiday.

We stayed towards the end of October, so something to mention is that around the hotel everything is closed! This however, worked perfectly for us. It meant that the beaches were super quiet and there weren't many tourists about. We hired a car through the hotel and it was very well priced, so we were able to drive out for food and to visit other parts of the island. There are a couple of vineyards nearby and luckily we managed to get in before they closed for the season. Our favourite was Sarris and I would definitely visit again! The rooms are very comfortable and equipped with anything you might need for your stay. We were very sad to leave!

Hotel's Favourite
Avithos A beautiful resort which has been tastefully decorated & styled throughout We stayed in a ground floor deluxe studio which had a large bedroom living area with settee, table & chairs, hanging rail and plenty of storage. There was also a dressing table & chair and a large comfy bed with a selection of pillows available. There is an iron, ironing board & hairdryer In addition there is a separate bathroom with shower ( a bit small but still ok) with some lovely toiletries and a kitchen area which had all the basics including fridge microwave kettle toaster & induction hob Directly outside was a nice small terrace with table & chairs The staff here are really lovely and nothing is too much trouble The resort is a little remote but they offer a shuttle service to restaurants between 4pm & 10pm I think a shuttle a couple of times a day would be nice for Avithos beach but Al Helis is walkable. Restaurants nearby include Esprides which is easily walkable & has its tables set in an orange grove and serves lovely food Slightly further is avithos Preview & Entiko set on avithos beach the shuttle will drop you at these and the restaurant will call them to collect you when you are ready providing its before 10pm We ate at Avithos preview twice and had great meals and service If you are happy to walk a bit off road you can get too Fois it’s only a 15 min walk or Sea Salt which is only accessible from a steep track leading down to Al helis beach but definitely worth the walk for lovely food and views. Avithos grounds & pool are immaculately kept and we enjoyed lunch at the bar We only had breakfast once but everything you need is there but personally we thought €13 pp was a bit expensive if you only wanted a light breakfast so we bought some bits & pieces from the local supermarket which is only a 10 minute walk away and seems to stay open quite late . The resort is spotless and the cleaners were fantastic! The closest beach is Al helis which being down a step track is not the most accessible but it’s definitely worth it. Towards the end of our holiday we did see that this beach is accessible from some steps a little further round, the It’s a lovely sandy beach with clear water and a soft sandy bottom. Sunbeds and brolly costs €10 for the day and there is a small bar on the beach which sells nice lunch bits. Overall I would say this is probably one of the highest standard self catering resorts we have stayed in. It has an upmarket feel and certainly looks the part If there was one thing that we feel would be nice is that there is a beautiful seating area that no one uses it would have been lovely to sit there in the evening after dinner and listen to some music even if it was just a couple of nights a week . I wouldn’t want this resort to turn rowdy but a guitarist or singer would have been lovely and I think it would encourage guests to come back after dinner and spend more money at the bar ! It would create a nice atmosphere in what is a lovely under-utilised room. We hired a car all arranged for us from reception at a reasonable price €120 for 3 days. We visited Argostoli which is busy but nice to see turtles swimming near the port, Fiskardo which is pretty but very much caters for the yachting fraternity, but definitely worth a visit! Assos was a beautiful unspoilt village & harbour lovely for a lunch stop and the drive up has spectacular views including the beautiful Myrtos beach. On our way back we visited Sami and Messalini lake which was pretty. Overall a really lovely clean stylish resort with great staff would be perfect with just a little entertainment!

Pros: very modern boho rooms, good breakfast, lovely design overall. Close to one very small isolated beach. Staff members will go above and beyond to help you. Cons: a car is a must for this resort, so if you don’t drive go with someone who does :)

Really nice hotel and good value for money All the staff are friendly and helpful Rooms are spacious clean and furnished to a high standard.We chose a ground floor room to utilise the seating area outside Location is in a relatively quiet area but there are some great restaurants and beaches in walking distance and we hired a moped to explore the island. Breakfast is good with plenty of choice albeit a little repetitive but not an issue if only staying for a week or two Lovely and relaxing pool area with good Wi-Fi available across all areas of the hotel and outdoor spaces Highly recommend and worth visiting

A nice hotel, with lovely public areas and friendly staff, in a quiet location, close to the airport. Pros: Good location and close to the airport. 10/15 min walk to the beach. Friendly, polite and helpful staff. Lovely public areas with great decor. Lovely pool, pool area and bar. Spacious rooms, nice to have a fridge and kitchenette. Very clean and well maintained. Cons: Rooms not as they seem in the pictures. Clean, spacious but not as plush as the photos make them out to be. Soft furnishings absent. Lack of wardrobe space an issue. Breakfast not amazing. If you arrive late food isn't replenished e.g. yogurt, eggs. Pre-cooked omelettes containing meat, and scrambled eggs have the same serving spoon, so if you're vegetarian, you will have an issue. Meats should be separated. Fried eggs left out for long times and cold. Cooked breakfast very lacking (eggs and sausages, that's it). Could do with more hot food varieties e.g. choice of omelettes. Coffee not the best. No cold coffee/tea options. Breakfast options seem quite basic and easy for the staff to produce rather than what the customer might want. If you stay for a week you will get bored of the same breakfast each day. Conclusion: Overall a lovely hotel. Has a lot going for it. Exceptional staff and cleanliness. But not quite what we thought when we booked, especially given the photos and reviews online.

Just returned home after our 2 weeks at the Avithos. It was our third visit and nothing has changed. It must be very difficult to continuously meet the very high standards achieved by the team but they do so in every respect. The hotel is spotless, the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble, the service is superb and the food very good. Nearby beaches are good and the shuttle service to both them and to some of the slightly further away restaurants invaluable. There are also some super restaurants within walking distance. It would be unfair to single out any of the Avithos team as they are all superb. We'll be back.

Great hospitality is when clever architecture, crisp interior design, flawless service, fresh local ingredients and a superb choice of quality wines combine with a breathtaking setting. Excellent hospitality adds another layer with the warmest of welcomes, personal touches and makes you feel like you belong there like an old friend. Avithos hospitality exceeds this and every expectation you have. It is not just another nice hotel, it is one that you will remember and return to again and again. It keeps a piece of your heart, you will never want to leave. A superb team that make the very hard job of hospitality look effortless. Thank you. ❤️

All my thanks go to the staff of avithos resort. A wonderful staff with a hospitality that I don't know how to describe. A hotel that deserves not only 5 stars but more than that. A cleanliness and a fantastic view. With a service that cannot be described in words. I thank you from the bottom of my heart to the owner of the hotel Mr. Lefteri and all the staff.You are the best🥰🥰

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Avithos Resort, such a lovely resort, the staff were wonderful, would definitely go back again, really near the airport so nice easy transfer. Very relaxed atmosphere with a good eye to detail. We needed an extra travel plug and they even lent us one to save having to buy another one. Had some really good food in several nearby restaurants, can’t wait to go back.

What an outstanding complex. We have never stayed anywhere that keeps all surroundings, rooms, reception area, bathroom facilities, pool surrounds, gardens and pathways so well maintained. Everywhere was so clean and fresh with staff constantly going round in the background cleaning and clearing up. We stayed in the superior family studio Which they automatically upgraded us from the deluxe studio which was an added bonus. Reception staff are very welcoming and friendly and always there to help. The free taxi service to the local beach was very handy however there are further beaches in the area that also have lovely settings and beautiful clear waters. My partner and I travelled outside of the school holidays so there were only a couple of families with children, the majority of people were generally more senior which probably made for the very quiet relaxing environment. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a quiet relaxing time
