The Location

With bewitching turquoise and cerulean blue waters lapping up against white pebble beaches, and pine-scented limestone mountains slashed by lush, green fertile valleys, Kefalonia is the largest, and one of the most beautiful, of Greece’s Ionian Islands.

In the previous millennium, the island depended primarily on agriculture, but following the 2001 film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, based on the book by Louis de Bernieres, tourism has become increasingly important.

Mountainous villages surrounded by lush greenery, Byzantine monasteries, breathtaking landscape, and amazing beaches complete the picture of this charming island.
