The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands of Greece. It is located between Lefkada and Zakynthos. The Greek Island has many wonderful beaches with fine sand and turquoise waters.Its many beauties include picturesque villages, dramatic scenery as immortalised in the film 'Captain Corelli's mandolin.and the National Park on its highest mountain (Mount Aenos) on which a rare species of fir forest grows.
Kefalonia was, like all the other Ionian Islands, dominated by various civilizations such as the Byzantine, the Frankish, the Ottoman, the Venetian, but also the Napoleonic and the British Empires. These cultures left a visible sign on the architecture of Kefalonia with great works, such as the bridge of Argostoli.
Fabulous cave system, once used by Maria Callas for a concert. A palace of stalactites and stalagmites
Be rowed around the underground lake in awe of your surroundings, and hear the fascinating story of how the water comes to be there.
Saint Gerasimos Monastery
Home to the remains of Saint Gerasimos, patron saint of Kefalonia. In the garden is the large plane tree that was planted by St Gerasimos in the 16th century. While inside the ornate church you can see his remains - after death he did not decompose, a feat that prompted his canonization. With church interior that is quite amazing. It is a working monastery, so all the usual rules about dressing modestly apply.
One of the most stunning views of Kefalonia a must see if only for a photo shoot
The islands capital, the place for you if you enjoy people watching whilst enjoying a lovely meal in the evening. Great outdoor cafe society. Many shops, restaurants and tavernas.
Picturesque harbour village, which survived the big earthquake of 1953.
Hire a boat
From Agia Efimia (one of the prettiest villages on the island), explore the coves and tiny beaches unreachable by car.
Greek wine? Try it at the Robola Wine Co-operative set in the beautiful Omala Valley (next door to St.Gerasimos Monastery) and have a very informative tour of the factory â€¦.their wine tasting is very generous
Part of the charm of Kefalonia is to do nothing but relax and live on island time. Which is not to say that there is nothing to do on the island - watersports and sunbathing by fabulous turquoise seas are primary attractions
But if you can pull yourself away from the sand or surf then there are also archaeological ruins, monasteries, places of interest, myth and legend and pretty seaside villages
And not forgetting that there are also daily ferries from Kefalonia to Athens, Lefkada, Ithaca, Zakinthos, Patra, and Kallini
