Why go to Kefalonia

With quiet sandy beaches, calm turquoise seas and buckets of charm, a Kefalonia holiday is the quintessential Greek island getaway. The largest Ionian island, its peaceful ambience draws savvy holidaymakers seeking the romance of Greece without masses of tourists.

Louis de Bernières' bestselling novel, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, and its subsequent film adaptation gave Kefalonia a moment in the spotlight, but despite its 15 minutes, the island remains largely unspoiled.

In remote parts of the north, you're more likely to encounter wandering goats than other tourists. Small villages ranging from the traditional to the ultra-swanky dot the landscape. For the latter, try Fiskardo. A picture-perfect village on the north tip of the island, it has some of the only candy-coloured Venetian architecture to survive the shakes of the 1953 earthquake. It’s arguably one of Kefalonia's prettiest destinations but, unsurprisingly, its beauty attracts the luxury yachts of the rich and famous.
