The island of Captain Corelli is the largest in the Ionian chain. Holidays in Kefalonia transport you to a mystical place of underground lakes and bare mountains, full of local legends and myths. The much-photographed Myrtos Bay with possibly the bluest sea on the planet is claimed to be impenetrably deep. One of the least commercialised destinations in Greece, Kefalonia is the perfect place for a luxury holiday retreat. Whether you prefer to relax on the beach or enjoy the beautiful scenery of this spectacular mountainous island on one of its many trails, Kefalonia will not disappoint.
