Kefalonia Holidays

The largest of the Ionian Islands lying to the west of the Greek mainland, Kefalonia attracts visitors looking for reliably sunny weather, gorgeous beaches and a relaxed ambience for their family holidays, and also those who are interested in the history and culture of the area. For Kefalonia is steeped in history. Once an important part of the virile Mycenaean civilisation which dominated the region in the second century B.C., the island was later settled by Romans and in medieval times was part of the Byzantine Empire. Since then it has passed through Turkish, Venetian and French hands, among others, and all have left their mark upon the island. The people are friendly and welcoming and seize upon any excuse for a party; they love to sing and dance and drink the excellent local wine. Naturally the nightlife is lively, especially in the capital Argostoli, where fine taverns are plentiful. If you’d like your Kefalonia holidays to be a little more adventurous, the rugged mountainous island interior affords plenty of opportunity for hiking and climbing.

Places To Stay On Kefalonia Holidays
Those looking for cheap holidays won’t be disappointed here because prices remain very reasonable. Holidays in Kefalonia are characterised by great weather; it’s mild all year round and very hot, 30 degrees plus, in July and August. Excellent locations for family holidays are:


Being in Assos is like stepping back in time. Well preserved ruins dot the town, pastel coloured houses cluster around the bay, and the ruins of a sixteenth century Venetian fortress overlook the enchanting scene against a backdrop of pine and cypress clad hills.


A picturesque little hamlet where the visitor can simply relax in the tranquil surroundings by a bay of clear blue water amidst the scent of eucalyptus. Chalikeri is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy cheap holidays in a welcoming atmosphere.


With its Mycenaean ruins, a Byzantine church, an 19th century lighthouse and well preserved Venetian era buildings, the fishing port of Fiskardo is architecturally fascinating. It also boasts many wonderful little gift and craft shops. Visitors can charter a boat to explore the coves of the rugged shoreline and spot the exotic marine life.


Blessed with beautiful beaches, stunning clear blue waters and a wonderful Old Town, Katelios is a joy to explore. This is the best area to see the endangered loggerhead turtles, and visitors can receive a guided tour of their habitats.

Things To Do On Holidays In Kefalonia
You won’t find yourself short of exciting things to do on the island. A visit to the extraordinary natural wonder of the subterranean Melissani Lake is highly recommended. Here experienced guides will take you on rowing boats to a magical grotto where Pan was once worshipped. Over 150 million years old, the Drogarati Cave will impress with its beautiful rock formations. It is used for concerts in the summer due to the wonderful acoustics. To learn more of the island’s history, a visit to the Argostoli Museum of Archaeology is essential.
