This lushly vegetated island with spectacular beaches and crystal clear waters luxuriates in the Ionian Sea. Along with its breathtaking views, it boasts a rich archeological history and cultural tradition.
Kefalonia’s unique geological phenomena and untouched wild habitat make for distinctive flavours and a unique cuisine. From its traditional sugar coated almonds (mandoles), to its crisp *Robola wine, it is a gastronomic haven for foodies and nature lovers. Local ingredients and homegrown produce are revered; locals take great pride in holding up traditional farming practices and respecting what the island unreservedly offers.
Its people, its food, and its incredibly beautiful natural habitat make Kefalonia a ‘must see’ destination!
Located in the Ionian Sea (just a 45minutes flight from Athens), your day trip will entail a tour around villages, cooking and eating with locals, walking in 100 year-old family vineyards, making marmalade from handpicked fruit, and if you are lucky, hugging sheep!
