The peaceful village of Lourdas sits on a steep hillside on the south coast of Kefalonia surrounded by the pine forest and cypress trees of Mount Ainos. An area of steep hillsides, which ends in a lovely beach with pale white sand and beautiful crystal clear waters. It’s a traditional picturesque village with a central square shaded by a plane tree, with little taverns and beach bars tucked into the streets around it.
Lourdas is a coastal settlement and is quite popular for its well-organized beach. The combination of the crystalline waters and stunning mountain backdrop of Mount Aenos provides dream-like scenery that captivates all sights. Not far from the coast lies the Monastery of Sissia.
