Cephalonia like a post card!
Cephalonia is the largest island in the Ionian Sea and sixth in size in Greece.
It is located between the islands of Lefkada and Zakynthos. The deep blue sea, the golden sandy beaches, the unique dreamy caves, the Rocky Mountains and the traditional settlements with their picturesque ness and grandeur of the past will be the ideal scenery of your holidays in the island of Kefalonia. Its beautiful places, archaeological areas and historical monuments will impress you.
“Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”
The island of Kefalonia has escaped mass tourism and recently was used as a location to film “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”, set in war-time Kefalonia. The film, with Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz, was a huge success and it put Kefalonia firmly on the ‘must visit’ list of destinations.

Above the small peninsula, in the area of Fanari, stands the wonderful Argostoli, the capital of the island, with the bridge of Drapano, the Koutavos lagoon, the Lighthouse of Agii Theodori and the Cave of Agios Gerasimos.

The beaches of the island are unique and magical with wonderful gold, red or white sand, blue transparent or green emerald waters along with the presence of the green slopes and the sea breeze of the Ionian Sea.

We suggest you from swimming, playing and relaxation the sandy beaches Agios in Emplisi, in Argostoli, in Antisamo, in Mirto, in Makri Gialo, in Ammes, in Agia Pelagia, in Spartia, in Avitho, in Livatho, in Lourda, in Karavomilo, in Agia Kiriaki, in Fiskardo, in Xi, in Batsa, in Mersia, the Akrotiri in Petanous and in Agio Spiridona.
If you rent boat, your choices for swimming in the lonely beaches and the unapproachable areas are countless. For those who love fishing, there are many fishing-villages and good spots for fishing

The food in the island is rich in taste with many choices in every village, small town or touristic centre.
Your accommodation is ensured in any point of the island with choices of rent-rooms, furnished apartments and hotels. Those who love nature can visit the organized camping sites of Sami, Argostoli and Fanari.

The island is offered for summer excursions in the natural beauties of the island with its kind inhabitants.
We suggest you for your summer vacations the island of Kefalonia and the wonderful Ionian Sea!
