Aspects of Kefalonia
This month we flew from our local airport, Doncaster, to Kefalonia which is on of the Ionian islands of Greece.
It is a very pretty island and is quite mountainous – a challenge for drivers as were soon to find out.
We stayed at the Hotel Mediterranee in Lassi, a lovely hotel with the most amazing views out to sea. A seaview room is definitely worth the supplement here. We hired a car for 4 days and set off each day to explore a different part of the island. On one of these trips we went to Fiskado in the north of the island, a journey which looked relatively simple on the map, but in real life was like a rally drive over the mountains and round hairpin bends with enormous drops to the side of us. It is not for the feint hearted, but Fiskardo is definitley worth the effort.
We also visited Sami, Skala and Argostoli which is the capital.
The Greek people are very friendly and it is no wonder that at our hotel the staff were constantly welcoming back return guests.
Kefalonia definitely has my stamp of approval!
