Kefolonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands that lie off the western coast of mainland Greece. It is a very popular holiday destination among Greeks, Italians and Britons, although it is perhaps less well known than some of the other Greek holiday islands like Crete, Kos or Corfu.
As you’d expect from a Greek island, Kefalonia is absolutely replete with wonders from an ancient past that can be genuinely fascinating to learn about or in many cases just to look upon and admire. And if you find the ancient buildings charming and impressive then you’d better save some admiration for the beaches, the hillsides and the mountain coves that you can of course take in at leisure while enjoying Kefalonia holidays.
The atmosphere around Kefalonia is generally one of peacefulness and tranquillity, whether that’s as you look out to sea or along a sleepy village high street. There are areas of major commerce and activity, primarily around the capital Argostoli, but for the most part the island is famed as a wonderful and almost magical place to come and relax for a while in the sunshine. There are plenty of excellent and suitably enticing offers on holidays to Kefalonia available online right now, including package deals designed for families with young children.
As part of the Ionian Islands, Kefalonia belongs to one of the most amazing holiday regions around southern Europe and a just a little way further east lies another along the coasts of south-west Turkey. If you’ve never taken a trip to either area then now could be just the right time to change all that. There are cheap holidays to Turkey on offer right now and always dozens of bargain packages available on trips to the eastern Aegean and the Ionian islands.
