Apartments on Kefalonia

Turquoise-blue views practically in front of the front door

On Kefalonia you will find most of the vacation rentals along the coast, where you can enjoy the wide view of the sea from your own terrace. Of course it is not far from such an apartment to the nearest beaches. In addition, a holiday apartment in the middle of one of the village centres on the island offers you numerous shopping possibilities and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Find a vacation rental with plenty of privacy

If you simply want to experience peace and relaxation during your holiday, then a vacation rental in the interior of the country is highly recommended, which is often available in a secluded location. Such accommodations often have their own pool where you can refresh yourself at any time. In addition, the untouched landscape invites you to go hiking. If you arrive by car, parking in front of the house is no problem at all.

Top 3 travel tips

1. To the underground lake of the island

The main attraction of Kefalonia is Lake Melissani, which in ancient times was a place of worship for the god Pan. The lake can be reached via a grotto, into which a lot of daylight penetrates, especially at midday. Not far from the Melissani cave you can also visit the Drogarati stalactite cave.

2. Experience varied hours in the museums

On Kefalonia there are several interesting exhibition houses that illustrate the history of the region. Visit the Historical Museum in Argostoli, which shows more than 800 years old exhibits from the Diakata churchyard. In Fiskardo there is a marine museum and in Davgata there is a museum dedicated to natural history.

3. Taste typical island specialities

Typical dishes on Kefalonia are the stockfish and the meat stew Pligouri. Also extremely tasty is riganada, a rusk spiced and roasted like meat. You must also try the many tomato dishes, which are prepared either as a spread on bread or in the pan breaded or fried. A popular dessert on the island is Komfeto, a soft nougat dish with almonds.

Things to know

Wonderful beaches as far as the eye can see
