Kefalonia, Kefallinia or Cephalonia is the largest of Ionian Islands of Greece. Amongst its diverse scenery lie a number of tiny, historic villages, wild mountains and fine sandy beaches. Wartime bombs and the 1953 earthquake destroyed much of the old villas and buildings, but there is now a captivating mix of traditional and new holiday villas in Kefalonia. Fine beaches, clear turquoise waters, picturesque villages and stunning mountains all add to the culture and relaxation associated with taking holiday rental accommodation in Kefalonia.

Things to do on holiday in Kefalonia

Walking is a favourite pastime in the forested mountains of Kefalonia’s interior, which provide both good exercise and a change to stumble upon some of the beautiful, traditional mountain villages, but also discover breath taking viewpoints of the Mediterranean. Bike rental is also available, and there are many routes to explore the mountains and hills of the interior.

The island is not only a great place to relax, sunbathe and indulge in Greek culture, but the seas provide many hours of entertainment. Windsurfing and sailing are particularly popular, as there are very reliable sea breezes and warm waters. Taking a self catering apartment in Kefalonia is an ideal solution for exploring the Ionian Islands by yacht or boat, as the freedom and flexibility are endless.

Scuba diving in the crystal clear waters is big business in Kefalonia. There are a number of dive schools if you would like to learn, and there are some magnificent dives to choose from. If you do not wish to get wet, glass bottomed boat tours are also available.
