Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian group of islands. Its beautiful and much photographed beaches may not come as a surprise and you may have heard of its scenic pine clad mountains, you may already be familiar with Greek hospitality and perhaps have experience of the Mediterranean climate but this is one island that far exceeds its reputation and really is as pretty as a picture or should we say the picture.

Opportunities for cycling, walking, windsurfing, riding and caving will keep the active busy.  But if you prefer to explore in a more leisurely manner then regular pleasure boats make the short ‘hop’ over to the mythical Island of Ithaca or go ‘island hopping’ taking in Lefkas, Meganissi and Skorpidi (owned by the Onassis family).  If you get hooked by seafaring then you can hire a small boat and take off to discover your own beach. By car you can drive between pine clad hillsides where monasteries dot the countryside or along scenic coastal routes stopping at picturesque harbours where yachts gently bob at anchor and pastel tinted houses line the quaysides.

What Does Kefalonia Have To Offer?

The island and its delights are easy to explore, Kefalonia being a small island, it is a drive of less than 2 hours from the furthest reaches of Skala, in the south to Fiscardo in the north.  In between, there’s intriguing underground lakes,  beautiful limestone caves and  mountain scenery to explore as well as a wonderful  and varied coast line.

Kefalonia is famous for its protected loggerhead turtles and the many sandy beaches of the  south are breeding grounds where you will find  conservation groups, always happy to share their knowledge.

Argostoli, the islands capital is set alongside  a deep inlet where turtles swim beside the wide promenade. Stall holders peddle the freshest fish and vegetables from the colourful quayside market and the small town itself is rich in choice of tavernas, cafes and bars.

No visit to Kephalonia would be quite complete without visiting the beautiful Gentilini winery, where the delicious and fruity Robollo wine is produced.

Our fondness for unique properties means that we have a range of  villas on offer,  delightful gems, everyone of which has a sea view and is a great starting point for visiting the islands delights with your very own pool to return to at the end of each day.
