Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands in western Greece and features a mild climate along with some excellent beaches.
Since it became popular amongst tourists in the eighties, Kefalonia now gets visitors not just from Greece and Europe but from all over the world and is well-equipped to handle the influx of tourists during the busy season.
The film, Captain Corelli's Mandolin was shot on the island itself which helped to make it more widely known.
With 2 ferry ports on the island (Sami and Poros) Kefalonia is ideally situated for connections to the other Greek islands.
The Ionian Islands are a group of Greek Islands off the West coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea, also known as the Western Greek Islands. The Islands we traditionally called Heptanese which means “the Seven Islands” in Greek, symbolising the seven principal islands in the group.
Unlike the Cyclades, the Ionian Islands are known to be flourishing with greenery. With distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture on each of the islands, it is hard not to fall for the Ionian Islands.
