The Island

Kefalonia

Kefalonia is the biggest of the Ionian islands, or as there are also known due to their number, “Eptanisa”, meaning seven islands. Located in the middle of the Ionian sea , it is surrounded by the islands of Ithaca, Lefkas, Zante and has a population of almost 40.000, of which 4.000 are British citizens, permanently living on the island. The climate is mild, reaching high temperatures during July and August, the weather being mostly sunny and warm. The beaches in the south part of Kefalonia are sandy while the ones in its’ north part are covered by small pebbles.

The capital of the island is Argostoli and the second largest city is Lixouri. A 20-minutes ferry boat trip connects the 2 cities, while 1 hour drive is the alternative road. Other important places to visit in “Captain Corelli’s” island are:
