Situated between Lefkada on the north and Zakynthos on the south, Kefalonia is the largest island of the Ionian Sea. Famous for its gorgeous beaches like Lourdas, Myrtos, Antisamos, Skala and picturesque villages, this island is the perfect destination if you are looking for a romantic escape or a true adventure with your lovely family. Holidays in Kefalonia will give you unforgettable memories of the beach and enjoyable walks in nature.
In steps of history, is interesting to know that during World War II, Kefalonia was under Italian and German domination. The capitulation of Italy leads to the massacre of 5 000 Italian soldiers. This event inspired the writer Louis de Bernieres to write its famous book, entitled “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” which became later a movie. Our beautiful island constituted the main setting for this Hollywoodian film.
Besides its ancient origins, Kefalonia has preserved her own treasure and every single day that you’ll spend here will have something new to reveal.
