Why go to Kefalonia

It was British writer Louis de Berniéres and the 2001 film of his bestselling novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin that helped to plant the idea of Kefalonia as a holiday destination in the minds of British holidaymakers.

Find budget and budget-busting holidays in Kefalonia

Despite shooting to fame, the island has remained remarkably unspoiled and taking holidays in Kefalonia can feel like you've stumbled upon some kind of secret.

That's not to say there aren't plenty of package holiday-goers in Kefalonia (cheap Kefalonia package holidays attract budget travellers every year) but rather that Kefalonia wears it well. As the largest Greek Ionian island, it simply manages to accommodate holidaymakers without ever feeling mobbed.
