Poros Guide

Poros is an attractive coastal town located on the southeast coast of Kefalonia, one of the Ionian Islands of Greece. Situated at the crossing point where the Vohinas river enters the sea, the name ‘Poros’ actually means ‘ford’ or ‘crossing’ in Greek.

As a port town, Poros links Kefalonia with mainland Greece with daily ferry services. Local fishing boats also use the harbour to supply the area with fresh fish. Poros used to be no more than a small cluster of fishermen’s huts, until the 1953 earthquake destroyed many of the surrounding villages and a new town was built.

Nowadays, Poros is built around a marvellous landscape of lush green forests and has a population of around 1100 inhabitants. The combination of dense vegetation and crystal blue water makes Poros one of the most perfect summer holiday destinations. With a slow pace of life and a traditional Greek atmosphere, Poros is great for those who seek to escape the package tours and find something genuinely Greek.


Kyllini Guide

Kyllini is a Greek town that is located on the Peloponnesian Peninsula's most western crook, and is perhaps best known as home to its busy port. However, there is more to the town than just the port and visitors should take time whilst there to explore all that is on offer. The first thing visitors notice is the town's backdrop of thick pine forests overlooking the town and the medieval castle that is located there. The town is also the beginning of am 11 km long coastline of white sand that gently leads to the lovely waters of the Ionian Sea.

From the town's highest point, the castle, all roads lead back to the town where visitors will find a square with a number of tavernas and shops. Also in the town there are good examples of terracotta roofed houses and apartments that seemed to have been built in a haphazard formation.

Also of interest in the town are a number of Greek and Roman ruins, with the most popular being the Crusader fortress of Chlemoutsi. Over the years the town has been ruled by Germanic tribes, the Turks and the Venetians and have all influence over the town in their own way.
