The Greek island of Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands and is well known for its great sandy beaches, its eclectic mix of resorts – some lively, others delightfully peaceful and unspoilt – and its beautiful, green, mountainous hinterland. The entire coastline is dotted with pretty bays and coves whilst the crystal clear waters surrounding the island gently lap some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, the most famous being Myrtos, a fabulous expanse of sand in a wonderful setting made famous by the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
Our hotel on Kefalonia is approximately 1.5 km from the centre of Svoronata on the south-west coast, a village which has retained much of its old-world charm thanks to sleepy winding streets and colourful gardens. There are 2 beaches within easy walking distance and Argostoli, the island’s capital, is only 10 kms away. It’s all very attractive and uncommercial with just a few hotels, villas, minimarkets and bars. There’s plenty to do and see on the island but, if it’s rest and relaxation you want and in a lovely setting, then this is definitely for you.
