Getting to Kefalonia: We can advise guests of which airlines fly to Kefalonia, and suggest websites to try. At present, out of season access is via Athens, with an internal flight (or ferry journey) to Kefalonia. New for 2012 - EASYJET flights to Kefalonia direct from the UK - March to November - details to be announced.
About Kefalonia: Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands, unspoilt, very friendly, with a beautifully varied landscape. The island's beaches offer something for everyone-sandy or pebbley, safe or wild, deserted coves or bustling, all with beautiful, clean azure seas. The beaches in the South of the island are generally sandy, and many are safe for swimming and provide excellent snorkelling. 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
Food and drink: Self catering on Kefalonia is a pleasure - the range and quality of fresh produce on the island is excellent. Local mini markets will provide essentials eg bread, fresh milk etc. For a bigger range Argostoli has daily fruit and veg markets with harbour front fish and meat also of a very high standard. In the main town there are a selection of food stores with a wider range of groceries including, if required, staples such as butter, baked beans and cheddar cheese! On each return to the island we enjoy revisiting favourite restaurants but can always discover a new gem. Numerous tavernas around the island offer simple grilled fresh fish and meat, pasta, salads and local dishes. In addition, particularly in Argostoli, there are more sophisticated restaurants to enjoy. Those with a passion for desserts will find many temptations in the island's patisseries. For wine lovers there are several wineries on the island to visit and sample the local Robola grape.
