Kefalonia hurricane Ianos
 
On Thursday and Friday, September 17 and 18, 2020, Kefalonia found itself at the epicenter of the strongest cyclone the island has ever seen. The storm was named Ianos.
 
The hurricane wind caused serious damage to roads, buildings, property. Many areas were left and still are without water and electricity.
 
Assos, Fiskardo, Sami, Karavamilos suffered the most. Huge damage was caused by mudflows from the mountains, where mud and stones ruined embankments, crashed cars, destroyed roads.
 
The restoration work began immediately, with equipment and labor from the mainland.
Nevertheless, the disaster practically did not affect some regions. These include, for example, Lourdata, Spartia where the consequences are almost imperceptible. Therefore, if you are planning a trip in the near future, we advise you to choose this town.
 
Below are some of the apartments, studios and villas in Lourdata, Spartia and nearby, ready to accommodate guests in September and October 2020:
