Kefalonia Hotels and Apartments
Kefalonia is the largest island out of the Ionian cluster and offers holidaymakers the old Greece with all the comforts of modern day. The island boasts beautiful beaches, stunning scenery and spectacular landscapes surrounded by the high mountains. Kefalonia is the perfect place for those wanting a holiday to relax and unwind in the place that was the setting for the romantic story of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
Who should go?
Kefalonia would suit couples and families wanting a chill out holiday. Nightlife is low key but Argostoli is an up tempo town and Lassi offers a good selection of bars. Elsewhere on the island nightlife centres around restaurants and tavernas.
There are plenty of beauty spots to visit on this island including Drogarati Cave, Melasani underground lake and the fishing villages of Fiskardo and Assos. You can also take a short boat ride to visit Kefalonia’s sister island, Ithaka.

Lourdas - lovely setting for views, swimming and eating!
Richard Ellis, Stockport
We stayed at Eagle's Nest for two weeks in September 2011. We chose these apartments because of the great reviews we had read, and were not disappointed. The owner, Marina, could not have been nicer. The views over Lourdas Bay were as good as Sorrento, and we could see right across to Zante. The pool was wonderful - we saw it cleaned and regularly tested. A car is recommended if you don't like hill walking! The area has ample tavernas, restaurants and mini-markets - without having become over-commercialised. The nearest cafe / bar to our apartment has just been taken over by Liza, and renamed Liza's Bar - very friendly, and great value for both drinks and simple but very tasty food. The locals and visitors are already supporting it (Liza used to have a taverna a few miles away, and her customers have followed her! Opposite Liza's Bar is "O Platanos" (The Maple Tree) named after the major landmark overhanging the road here, which also has great views. Up the hill a bit, are some other good restaurants, Spiros was our favourite of these, with a good choice and friendly family running it. Slightly more expensive (and a bit more "up market") are Andromeda's and La Mer. Down by the beach there are several good places to eat, or just have a drink.
The best thing about my stay was ...
Views. weather, lots of places to eat - without being over-commercialised
