About Kefalonia

Kefalonia (Cephalonia) is the largest of the Ionian Islands. It is located between Lefkada and Zakynthos. The length of the coast is 254 km and on its route you will find countless beautiful, sometimes wild beaches. The capital of the island is the city of Argostoli. From here, we will reach the ferry (30 min, approx. 2.8 euro / person / one way) to Lixouri – the second near the larger city, but calmer and most suitable for families or older and all who want to relax and rest.

Kefalonia is the most mountainous of the Ionian Islands. The highest peak is the Ainos mountain range (the highest peak 1628 m.n.p.m.). There are 17 caves on the island, of which Melissani and Drogarati are best known.

The frightening fact about which we will surely hear being on the island is that it belongs to the most seismically active area. This means that earthquakes are often encountered here. Mainly they cover the area of ​​the Paliki peninsula – that is the area of ​​the city of Lixouri, however, also near Argostoli. Usually, these quakes are not strong, they can be hardly felt by visitors. When choosing the area of ​​the Ionian Sea, we have to adjust to the probability of an earthquake, but the inhabitants are used to it and prepared. It is a fact that they even perceive their absence as a bad sign.

Returning to more pleasant information about the island, I need to name places worth seeing. The famous Myrtos beach, a miracle over miracles, is a must-see point and of course taking a photo against the blue of the sea. Mentioned earlier caves: Melissani and Drogarati as places for tourists from all over the world to come here. Fiskardo, or one of the few places preserved after the great earthquake of 1953. Other places worth seeing are Sami, Agia Efimia and Assos – a picturesque town with traditional houses surrounded by lots of green trees. With Sami you can take a ferry to the nearby island of Ithaca – called the island of Odysseus.

Kefalonia is a very green island, which owes a lot of rainfall during the winter. Rain can fall here even a month without a break. As for the fauna, it is worth seeing the huge Caretta caretta turtles that can be found daily in the port of Argostoli (preferably from the morning hours to 12:00). Other attractions are open-air trips on donkeys or horse riding at the seaside.

The day has come when we should say a little about us.  I am Agata and I have been lucky to live in beautiful Kefalonia for three years. Together with my husband - Aris  we organize trips on Kefalonia and Ithaca. Our office is Ecotravel Kefalonia - that is travel that brings you closer to nature and eliminates harmful activities, including bad mood. It is travel in a way similar to the economical, but also enriching with experiences and memories.
Some time ago, we looked at our beautiful, wild Kefalonia with delight. Proud that we have lived in such a place, perfect for many, many of you. We were in love in places where silence played the first violin, and the sea and the breeze were our only companions. Today, many of these places are missing, you need to look for silence with a candle ... Somewhere beyond the borders of all top attractions, where there is no straight path, are our little secret places. Here time stands still. Money plays no role. The melody of the surrounding nature creates a special concert for the ears and the eyes begin to shine with millions of surrounding colors. We are here because we want to show people that you can experience your vacation in a completely different, unspecified way. We are also here to lead safely to places that only local people know about. We are finally here to wake up mature travelers in tourists ... We do not direct our travels, we give free choice, valuable tips and time that is lacking in everyday life. We create a frame for a colorful picture that you create yourself, rediscovering your own passions and emotions.
If you are willing to travel, in which the concept of the rule is eliminated, please contact us and visit our profiles.
