The Ionian Islands region
Among the 3000 inhabited islands of Greece,there is a small group of seven, known as the Eptianissa or Ionian Islands, located just off the western seaboard.
It is not surprising that one of the world's most enduring and romantic epic stories, Homer's Iliad, is centered on these captivating landscapes of rugged mountains, green hills and the ever present turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea.
Over the centuries these islands have developed their own culture and identity, partly through their periodic occupation by foreign powers such as the Venetians, the Turks and the British, but also as a result of their rich natural environment and the intimate association of their inhabitants to the land and the surrounding sea.
The islands are well known for their beautiful sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, charming villages and stunning scenic countryside
The largest of the seven Ionian islands (700 sq km2 about). It's highest peak is Ancient Mount Aenos, 1628 m (5341feet) on Greece's west coast. Kefalonia has only 32,000 resident islanders. With Lefkas to the north and Zakynthos to the south the island is firmly on a tourist trail but despite the annual influx of visitors, mainly Italians, the island is so big it is still possible to get away to places where you are unlikely to meet a soul for days. Vast tracts of forest cloak the rugged limestone landscape, with ten peaks topping 5,000 feet. Beautiful golden beaches, lofty mountains providing the scenic backdrop to hundreds of secluded white coves , the strange striped cliffs, the cave of St. Gerassimos - the island's patron saint, the Cave of Drongorati, the underground lake at Mellisani, churches and Monasteries perched precariously on cliffs, timeless villages, some eerily deserted since the great earthquake of 1953. The limestone rock results in remarkable caves and caverns, some of which have become major tourist attractions. Geologists once grappled with the problem of the disappearing sea which flowed into swallow holes near Argostoli. No-one knew where it went until a couple of geologists tracked it with radioactive dye to the underground lake at Mellisani on the other side of the island. The coast is breathtakingly steep and sometimes precipitous as are the mountain roads that criss-cross the island. From the traditional fishing village of Fiskardo, the sweeping grandeur of Assos with it's hilltop fortress to the small tourist town of Poros, and the fascinating villages of Livatho which captivated Lord Byron with their beauty for four months, Kefalonia reveals to the visitor a glimpse of paradise at every turn - countless flowers creating a palette of colors and a captivating aroma. It is perhaps the most beautiful of all Greek villages. Lastly, at the top of Aenos live the elusive herds of the famous, exquisite wild horses of Kefalonia. This is an enchanting sight, a picture of strength and freedom, a picture of a rebellious pride which seems to be the very soul of the island...
