The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is the largest of the 7 Ionian islands.
An island that offers breathtaking scenery, fabulous beaches, great history and a destination that people return to time and time again.
The island in recent years has been made more famous due to the best-selling novel "Captains Correlli's Mandolin" which the Hollywood movie starring Nicholas Cage was filmed on the island in 2000.
The island has its own unique geological phenomenon that can be easily discovered with a visit to the underground lake of Melissani.
The island boasts one of the most photographed beaches in all of Greece, Myrtos.
An island that has still plenty of open countryside to enjoy by car or by foot.
The Kefalonia / Trapezaki area
Trapezaki beach is one of the best beaches on the island for children due to the shallow waters and clean sand great for making sandcastles.
Trapezaki is part of the Livathos district which covers alot of the south coast. It is a great base for any holidaymaker as it offers peace and tranquillity, local tavernas and mini market within walking distance, but only a short drive away from the capital.
For those wanting to explore the island nowhere is too far away, the furthest north will only take 1 hr 30 mins, to the east 45 mins, to the west 45 mins, and to the southern corner 30 mins. There are lovely local walks that will take you to neighbouring villages in either direction.
Snorkelling is good and private boat hire will allow you to discover some beaches only accessible from the sea.
