Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands, unspoilt, very friendly, with a beautifully varied landscape. The island has wonderful coast lines and safe beaches, all with beautiful, clean blue seas. The beaches in the South of the island are generally sandy, and many are safe for swimming and provide excellent snorkeling. If you need a bit more from your holiday than relaxing by the pool or beach then there are many places well worth visiting; villages such as Assos and the beautiful harbour of Fiscardo, virtually undamaged by the earthquake of 1953, the beautiful church of Agios Gerasimos, the Drogarti caves and Melissani Lake or a day trip to Ithaca. The dramatic Mount Ainos,1628m, and its surrounding National Park provides excellent walking opportunities, particularly in the spring and autumn, and is home to the island's native wild horses, eagles and osprey. The famous Robola vineyards are found in the nearby Omala Valley.
Kalligata: Kalligata is just a few minutes away from Kourkourmelata and both are located in historically the most prestigious areas on the island of Kefalonia with superb views of the Ionian Sea. Both areas are surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees and are just a short drive from the beautiful sandy beaches of Avithos, St Hellis and Ammes. The nearby villages of Lakithra and Svoronata also offer a number of local tavernas, mini-markets and bakery
