Destination guide

View stunning limestone cliffs with a Cephalonia villa

Another island in the Ionian Sea that is perfect for a holiday retreat is Cephalonia. Beachgoers love Cephalonia for the numerous sandy coves that give many beaches a secluded feel where you can swim and sunbathe like it's your private island. Anyone looking for villas to rent in Greece will want to check out Cephalonia, as the immense natural beauty of limestone cliffs and the rugged landscape is breathtaking. Cephalonia is home to numerous quaint towns where you can head out for a fishing excursion across the sparkling azure waters. Many of the beaches are lined with bars offering live music.

Things to do

Cephalonia is where legends live

Cephalonia is wrapped up in tales of the mighty Odysseus and the Olympian gods. Its backcountry is peppered with clues to its long and ancient past. You can check out the age-stained Venetian lighthouse in Fiskardo, or the Roman mosaics that have been unearthed in the dug-up villas of Skala, for clues to just some of the people who've called it home. The Historical and Folklore Museum in Argostoli is a good place to make sense of it all – it's got a menagerie of relics that goes from fascinating Byzantine icons to photographic records of Cephalonia in the 20th century.


An Ionian adventure in Cephalonia

Cephalonia holiday rentals are your ticket to one of the most handsome Ionian Islands of all. See it for yourself by renting a boat and cruising out past the marinas, where a montage of high cliffs and super-secret sandy bays awaits. Or, you could simply pull on the hiking boots and hit the trails – expect landscapes dressed in pine and olive trees, bucolic villages and mysterious monasteries clinging to the foothills of soaring Mount Ainos. Cavers can delve underground, into the dank caverns of Melissani or the stalactite-spiked chambers of Drogarati. There's adventure everywhere.


When Cephalonia comes to life

Cephalonia – like all Greek islands – goes into a sort of hibernation for the colder months of the year. The winter, from November to March, sees even the locals batten down the hatches and desert the beaches. Thankfully, long seasons of warm weather mean you can enjoy the treats of this Ionian jewel from as early as April to as late as October. Summer is the hottest time of year – great for stays in Cephalonia holiday rentals with a pool. Autumn and spring mean fewer people and cooler days.

Natural features

Peaks to turtle-trodden beaches in Cephalonia

More postcards than you can imagine have been created bearing Cephalonia's handsome scenery. From Myrtos Beach, glowing brilliant white, to Argostoli, where the rare loggerhead turtles lay their eggs, the whole coast is a medley of breathtaking bays and inlets. Once you're done there, the inland is also capable of wowing. It rises to soaring Mount Ainos at 1,628 metres up, crumpled with countless valleys and massifs all dressed in olive groves, pine trees and meadows that bloom with blood-red poppies. There are also caves, cutting deep underground to reveal cenotes – natural subterranean lakes – and dank tunnels.
