For a stylish and contemporary hotel, why not take a look at the Apollonion Asterias Resort and Spa in Kefalonia? Located close to the sandy Xi beach the hotel is set in the countryside outside of Luxouri. You can drive to the town centre of Lixouri in around 10 minutes. In mid and high season there is a local bus service into the town.

Life in the town revolves around the main square where you will find shops, bars and pavement cafes. There are sights dotted around like the lighthouse and museum but the star is certainly the beaches. The inside of the hotel has been decorated with the owner’s art collection.

Transfer time to the hotel is approximately 2 hours as it includes a ferry crossing when you book through TUI. It is possible to take a transfer around by road and the road route takes an hour. The ferry crossing is 25 minutes with 15-minute transfers on each side. Ferries run daily from May to October and are every 30 minutes in high season. Guests need to transfer their luggage from the coach to the Lixouri ferry and it is only included in the price of your holiday if you are booking a package.
