The restoration of the longest stone bridge in Europe is complete and is one of Argostoli’s best known and valued attractions.Open to pedestrians and provides a wonderful opportunity to cross the lagoon on foot whilst enjoying the sea air, spotting wild water birds, swans and turtles. You can enjoy the backdrop of beautiful mountains on one side and the colourful town of Argostoli on the other. Argostoli is now just 10 minutes on foot from the Villa Acqui and a pleasant stroll along the bridge will take you into the heart of Argostoli waterfront.

A double door separates the bathroom from the studio and it has a walk in shower. The studio has a modern fitted kitchen unit with a ceramic hob and fridge - great for fixing a breakfast or light meals and snacks. Meals can be taken inside the studio, or of course on the terrace outside. Patio doors lead onto the terrace where there is plenty of space with an umbrella and patio furniture.

Other things to note

There he recounted the events that took place in 1943 at the particular location. This documentary was characterized as the best of the decade.

Further Details
Argostoli is just minutes away by car or taxi and being the capital, has all amenities. There are banks and supermarkets, chemists, Post Office etc.
The pedestrianised shopping street has a great variety of shops for spending money if desired, or just for browsing. The food shops and fruit market are all along the harbour front. A very popular attraction are loggerhead turtles that swim up to the quayside waiting for titbits from the fishing boats - much to the delight of passing tourists. There are two very interesting museums to visit - the Folklore and also the Archaeological Museum. It is easy to visit the town of Lixouri by the little ferry that runs frequently between Argostoli harbour front and Lixouri.
The town is buzzing at night with a real cosmopolitan feel - plenty of cafes for enjoying your cappuccino, mojito, ouzo or your favourite tipple... and just simply 'people' watching. Often during the summer there are events happening in the main Square. Numerous tavernas and restaurants cater for all tastes with plenty of opportunity to sample authentic Greek food, with lively bars and a nightclub for those wishing a real night life experience. Several taxi ranks are in the town and a taxi would have you back home in minutes.
Kefalonia is an up and coming destination becoming even more popular with the rich and famous - a reasonably common sight being international film stars, musicians, politicians, royalty, sporting icons, sheiks and oligarchs... Many of their yachts moor in Argostoli harbour and most definitely Fiskardo is their main playground.. Just strolling along the streets and harbour promenade, mixing with the locals and the cosmopolitan visitors, is a real pleasure.
Guests, whilst enjoying their privacy, have the benefit of knowing that the owners of the property are on hand if needed or required, whether to give you the benefit of their local knowledge or to provide you with a Greek supper!

Our stay at Christos and Alexandra's was above our expectations. They have been the best host in our airbnb experience, we had lovely evening conversations where they explained us everything about the island. Alexandra is an amazing cook, she had prepared some Greek foods for us. The studio itself has been spotless and perfectly located in the middle of everything. If you choose Christos and Alexandra's place, you won't be disappointed.

Christos and Alexandra welcomed us like family. They were very friendly and easy to communicate. The place felt like home, was super clean and has everything you need. They even gave us beach towels and beach umbrellas! There was also a book with directions to all the beaches, the best restaurants and other ideas to go around the island which was very useful. The villa is in a very quiet area, but still close to the new bridge that leads to the town, which was a nice idea for a romantic afternoon walk. It was a pleasure to be in their flat, and I definitelly recommend it to anyone that wants to spend their holidays in this magic island!

Christos is a wonderful host and a great person to get to meet in Kefalonia. The place is very simple and centrally located on the island. It is a great value find without a lot of frills (bring your own beach towels and don't count on reliable wifi. We wanted to watch a movie, and he kindly found us a DVD version after we weren't able to download it), which works out well if you are looking for a simple base off the grid while mostly exploring the island during your days. Myrtos Beach, per Christos' suggestion, was incredible!

Response from Christos:
Dear Christopher, The arrival is after 14:00 p.m. as mentioned in the site, you asked us to arrive at 6:00 a.m. in the morning and we accepted to serve you at no extra charge. My wife woke up and welcomed you in the morning. The studio contains exactly what is written on the site and in additional : sea umbrella, Sea mats, dishwasher and floor washing, dish towel, extra small towels for any use, dvd movies, books, games, mini market for your convenience, garbage out of the studio and garbage collection from us once a day. If you wanted sea towels and anything else you should have asked us and we would provide them instantly as we have done in the past, despite many times we asked you if you need something. According to the wi-fi on the first day, it normally worked as you confirmed it to us. The next day, a problem was created by the internet service provider without our own responsibility. Because we respect the holidays of our visitors, we make sure we are as helpful as possible. That is why we accepted early arrival, free welcome products (coffee,sugar,tea,milk,eggs,jam,etc),and we kindly accepted delay at your departure. . In the context of hospitality we overlooked the fact that you did not pay the mini- market products and we wish you a good continuation of your vacation. But know that we will take your proposals seriously and will correct any shortcomings. Christos & Alexandra

Christos and Alexandra are the best! The studio is perfect! It is located in a quiet and beautiful area, it is very comfortable and you can find in there everything you need for your stay. It is located close enough to Argostoli (10 mins by car), the main city of the island, and exactly in the middle of Kefalonia, so it is perfect if you want to travel around it and see the many awesome places of the island. The hosts were very helpful and accomodating, always reminding us that we could ask whatever we wanted if we needed any help! They are really nice and kind people, they even shared with us fresh eggs from their chickens or something Alexandra made for us to eat! If you go there try to spend some time with them cause they are really funny and talkative, it was very nice to have a drink while sharing our cultural differences till late night. They made our holiday unforgettable! We'll be back there for sure in the future! Thanks for all your efforts to make our stay perfect! Alessandro e Manuela
