How to book your summer holiday to Kefalonia

Kefalonia, Kefallinia or Cephalonia is the largest of Ionian Islands of Greece. Amongst its diverse scenery lie a number of tiny, historic villages, wild mountains and fine sandy beaches. Wartime bombs and the 1953 earthquake destroyed much of the old villas and buildings, but there is now a captivating mix of traditional and new holiday villas in Kefalonia. Fine beaches, clear turquoise waters, picturesque villages and stunning mountains all add to the culture and relaxation associated with taking holiday rental accommodation in Kefalonia.

Villas in Kefalonia – On one of the most naturally diverse of all the Greek Islands, holiday rental accommodation in Kefalonia will put you somewhere between a landscape of majestic mountains and a coastline of blissful sandy beaches and peaceful rocky coves, so if you have a passion for breathtaking scenery and are planning an outdoor activity holiday, apartments and Kefalonia villas can meet those requirements perfectly in a choice of locations anywhere on this unique Greek Island. Holiday accommodation in Kefalonia is ideal for a family vacation rental where opportunities for sport and recreation can be found to suit the interests of people of all ages – from sea kayaking, snorkelling, boating and fishing to mountain-biking, climbing, hiking and horse-riding, the selection of either water-based or terrestrial pursuits are enough to appeal to anyone’s sense of adventure on the beaches or in the countryside, and with so many ancient towns and villages waiting to be explored, an apartment or villa rental in Kefalonia is just as likely to make a good starting point for a voyage of historical and cultural discovery. But if you have less energetic ideas when it comes to a holiday, accommodation in Kefalonia is sure to provide so much luxury and privacy that while the rest of the family are building up a sweat, you can put your feet up beside your own private pool and relax!

Walking is a favourite pastime in the forested mountains of Kefalonia’s interior, which provide both good exercise and a change to stumble upon some of the beautiful, traditional mountain villages, but also discover breath taking viewpoints of the Mediterranean. Bike rental is also available, and there are many routes to explore the mountains and hills of the interior.

The island is not only a great place to relax, sunbathe and indulge in Greek culture, but the seas provide many hours of entertainment. Windsurfing and sailing are particularly popular, as there are very reliable sea breezes and warm waters. Taking a self catering apartment in Kefalonia is an ideal solution for exploring the Ionian Islands by yacht or boat, as the freedom and flexibility are endless.

Scuba diving in the crystal clear waters is big business in Kefalonia. There are a number of dive schools if you would like to learn, and there are some magnificent dives to choose from. If you do not wish to get wet, glass bottomed boat tours are also available.
