About Farsa

The Village

The village of Farsa lies on the west side of Kefalonia around 10km north of the capital of Argostoli. From its position on the eastern shore of the Gulf of Argostoli, the village enjoys fantastic views across the water to the Paliki Peninsula and Lixouri.

Farsa is a small but vibrant village with around 220 permanent residents, although numbers swell significantly during Easter and in August as people return from other parts of Greece to enjoy their traditional family homes.

The village has a rich maritime history dating back many centuries and of which the villagers are very proud. Many of the current families living in the village are descendants of ships captains, sailors and seafaring traders; a walk through the village will give you a feel for this proud past.

Farsa has a small, picturesque quayside called Limnioni, equipped with swim ladders along with its own pebble beach, Ligia Beach, perfect if you fancy a refreshing swim and an opportunity to meet some of the locals whilst you are in the village.

There are three churches in Farsa. The main church of St Christopher is in the centre of the village, the small church of St Paraskevi is by Ligia Beach and the Church of Panagia (meaning All-holy) dedicated to the Virgin Mary, mother of God, is in Old Farsa, rebuilt on its original site following the 1953 earthquake.


Farsa is home to a number of great places to eat or enjoy a drink during your visit to Footsteps, all of which offer a warm welcome and great hospitality.

• Milos Taverna (temporarily closed) – Situated at the southern end of the village the Milos (windmill) Taverna has been a firm favourite with visitors for decades. Offering a traditional taverna menu and with great views across the Gulf of Argostoli, the Milos is a place people return to time and time again. 

Astrolavos – You will find Astrolavos in the centre of the village, opposite the Church of St Christopher. The name derives from an ancient navigation tool used by seafarers, another nod to the maritime heritage of the village. Here you will find a great selection of delicious meze dishes and fresh seafood along with your favourite Greek classics.

Ta Tzoumerka (temporarily closed) – At the north end of the village is the traditional grill house of Ta Tzoumerka. If you love grilled meat, this is definitely the place to go. Enjoy a lunch or dinner at one of their kerbside tables for a really authentic village dining experience with great views of Old Farsa on the hillside opposite.

• Café Marina – If you want to enjoy a refreshing drink in the village there is no better place than the family run Marina Café. With a great selection of soft drinks, beers, wines and spirits there is something here to suit everyone. The perfect place to kick back, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the village
