The Poros Beach House is located in Poros, a coastal village that combines sea and mountain. The lush green environment and the blue sea are forming an incredibly beautiful landscape. Poros is a popular holiday resort. The mild climate assures a comfortable stay. The beautiful beaches are among the best on the island and are ideal for families and seniors. The Poros Beach House is a traditional house with two bedrooms (one air conditioned), a fully equipped kitchen and toilet with bath tube. It can comfortably accommodate four guests. A shady garden in the back is an ideal setting for lunch, while the front garden has views to the sea. The house is only 4 meters from the beach. The owner will treat you with genuine Greek hospitality, will offer you dinner with traditional delicacies and shows you all the 'local secrets' for a pleasant holiday on the island of Kefalonia.
Poros is a picturesque small town located in the municipal unit of Eleios-Pronnoi, some 40 km SE of Argostoli, 28 km SE of Sami and 12 km NE of Skala, in the south east of Cephalonia.
Poros is effectively divided into three parts. Poros port, with its couple of tavernas and bars, connects the island with Kyllini on the Peloponnese area of mainland Greece via regular year-round ferry service. During the summer months a ferry may connect Poros with Zakynthos and a couple of tourist caiques offer cruises to Ithaca and the Blue Caves of Zakynthos. The harbour is also home to the local fishing boats which supply the area with fresh fish.
Separated from Poros port by a small hillock lies the town beach, backed by a taverna-fringed square and main services: bank, chemist (pharmacy), doctor’s surgery, post office, police station and local shops. More tavernas and bars lie along the award-winning 'Blue Flag' beach, Aragia, separated from the centre of Poros by the Vohinas river.
The coastline facing Ithaca, is one of the last refuges of the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus monachus).
Just out of the Poros gorge a rough vehicular track leads to the Atros monastery, the oldest on Cephalonia, with impressive views across Poros. Further along is another track leading to the Mycenaean tomb of Tzanata.
