Kefalonia Hotels

Mini guide to Kefalonia


Located to the west of the Greek mainland, Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands, boasting striking natural wonders, a few historic buildings and archaeological sites, as well as many fine beaches.

Once bursting with stylish Venetian mansions and elegant bell towers, much of the capital of Argostoli was destroyed during WWII and the earthquake of 1953. Superbly set on the thumb of a bay, Argostoli is a city for those who enjoy strolling or sitting. Walk down along the waterfront and check out the Trapano Bridge or visit the meticulously maintained and well labelled displays in the historical Folklore Museum or the Corgialenos Library.

The other principal attractions of Kefalonia are its many beautiful beaches and the picturesque fishing port of Fiskardo, which is the only locale on the island to have survived the earthquake, and owes its charm to fine 18th century architecture and an intimate harbour.

Argistoli is the best-developed resort of the island and there are plenty of cafés on the central square (Vallianou) and along the waterfront. For shopping, head to the traffic-free Lithostroto Street.

The rest of the island is best seen by car. Take in more of the stunning scenery around Assos and Myrtos beaches; or, visit the magnificent caves outside the small town of Sami where the limestone rock results in remarkable formations and caverns.

Kefalonia Airport is 8 kms outside Argostoli and there are regular flights from Athens and many other European cities. A car/passenger ferry runs from Patras on the mainland to Sami on the island, from where taxis will deliver you to your hotel. There is also at least one car/passenger ferry daily (1 hour, 30 minutes) from Killini (out on the northwest tip of the Peloponnese) to Argostoli and Poros (on the southeastern coast of Kefalonia) via the Strintzis Line.
