Kefalonia is an island situated in the Ionian sea and is part of a group
of Greek island known as the Ionian's which include the famous tourist
islands of Corfu, Lefaks and Zante. Kefalonia or is that Kefallonia or
even Cephalonia ! has many excellent tourist resorts the biggest being at
Lassi, Poros, Skala and Sami. Smaller more laid back resorts are at
Lourdata, Katelios, Assos, Argostoli, Lixouri and Fiscardo to name a few.
The island is not only the largest amongst the Ionian Islands, but also
features the highest mountain which is Mount Einos which reaches a height
of 1627M with beautiful Kefalonian firs crowning the summit. On a clear
day the summit provides stunning views of the neighboring island of Zante
(Zakynthos) and Ithaca.
The beauty of Kefalonia can be seen from just about everywhere on the
island. The rugged hills and the mountainous terrain paint a commanding
backdrop for the piercingly clear shades of Turquoise and Azure Blue water
which hug the shores of the many breathtaking beaches and pretty fishing
villages which this island is proudly mother to. The mountain sides
flourish in the Spring and the famous Kefalonia Fir trees which are in
abundance will catch your attention standing tall and seeming to cast a
protective eye over the landscape . In the Spring and early Summer hills
and mountains are decorated by nature with many bright and vividly
coloured flowers which grow wild and set the scene for the perfect
photograph or oil painting.
Kefalonia is home to many pretty and impressive churches some stand
precariously on hillsides and others mingle neatly within their villages.
Most are painted in calm and harmonious colours which melt into the
landscape with their bell towers reaching up to the blanket of achingly
In August of 1953 a devastating Earthquake rocked the island fiercely and
violently destroying practically all buildings both in towns and villages.
Many ruins still stand as a poignant reminder of the day that altered the
architectural appearance of Kefalonia forever due to the fact that the
damage erased most of the islands elegant Venetian architecture with only
the very north of the island around Fiscardo escaping lightly.
Most visitors to the island arrive via charter flights. These fly from a
large selection of UK Airports. If you decide to travel independently then
Kefalonia flights are available to buy over the internet, which are
generally cheaper than those sold in travel agents. A Kefalonia holiday
offers you so much variety, whether you wish to stay and relax in one of
the many Kefalonia Villas that are mostly privately owned, however some
are available from you usual tour operator, holiday in one of the larger
kefalonia hotels, which are mainly located in the larger and commercialized
resorts or have your own room or apartment, these are found
practically everywhere on the island. Kefalonia apartments tend to be a
little basic, so you may need to take small electrical appliances with you
e.g. a travel kettle, iron and hairdryer.
Car hire, even if only for a couple of days is highly recommended to see
the wonderful sights this jewel of the Ionians oozes. The purchase of a
detailed Kefalonia map is advised as the maps provided by the car hire
firms are usually very basic, missing important information, which can
lead to you possibly getting lost!. The spirit of the island filtrates
around the herb scented air and seems to act as an aromatherapy for
relaxation and invites you to simply experience and explore the real
natural splendor of this island.
