"Kefalonia; A jewel in the Ionian Sea."
Skirted by the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea, Kefalonia sits gleaming like a jewel. You'll never see water so crystal clear, and just so, so blue. The views across Ithaca to the mainland are vast. The sheer scale of the landscape is awe inspiring .
But there is much more to Kefalonia then that; mountains, forests, meadows, unique species of trees, wild horses, turtles, fortresses, monasteries, wind mills, mythology, amazing geological features; Things you wouldn’t associate with Greece that make Kefalonia so special. Homer spoke of his wine dark sea, a phrase that needs no translation once experienced. Everywhere there are views that will take your breath away, and mountain roads that will just, well…… take your breath away!
Kefalonia is the most westerly part of Greece, and occupying a strategic place in the Mediterranean, has always played a leading role in the area. Archealogical remains show humans inhabited Kefalonia since the Mycenaean age and has been occupied over the centuries by the Romans, Venetians,Turks, Russians, Normans, French, and British. This gives Kefalonia its unique mix of history and architecture. Historic buildings from many eras litter the countryside. And the fact that it was never part of the Ottoman Empire gives it its unique character from the rest of Greece.
Add all this to the awesome scenery and you’ve got quite a potent mix!
