Kefalonia - useful information about holidays, furnished apartments, studios, villas

Post date: 2015-01-19

Most visitors arrive to Kefalonia island via charter flights, mostly originated from a large selection of UK Airports. If you decide to travel independently then Kefalonia flights are available to buy over the internet, which are generally cheaper than those sold in travel agents.

Holidays in Kefalonia offers you so much variety, whether you wish to stay and relax in one of the many Kefalonia Villas that are mostly privately owned, however some are available from you usual tour operator, holiday in one of the larger kefalonia hotels or traditional apartments to let and rooms to let, which are mainly located in the larger and commercialized resorts or have your own rent room or rent apartment, these are found practically everywhere on the island.

Kefalonia apartments tend to be a little basic, so you may need to take small electrical appliances with you e.g. a travel kettle, iron and hairdryer. The islanders are fantastically hospitable and welcoming. Life revolves around the family and children are welcomed wherever they go. I have experienced many a time when waiters have wandered off with our babies into their taverna kitchens and times when the children have been handed around the other members of staff, always making time to talk to the younger members of the party, they truly are friendly people. Kefalonians are also considered singular, energetic, and ingenious people. They are well known for their intelligence, and are excellent traders.

Car hire, if only for a couple of days is highly recommended to see the wonderful sights this Gem of the Ionians oozes. Do not be put off by some of the roads. This is not the destination to just sit in hotel grounds or in your rent room or rent apartment, it’s a tapestry of wonder that needs exploring. The purchase of a detailed Kefalonia map is advised as the maps provided by the rent car or rent motorbike firms are usually very basic, missing important information, which can lead to you possibly getting lost! The spirit of the island filtrates around the herb scented air and seems to act as an aromatherapy for relaxation and invites you to simply experience and explore the real natural splendor of this island.

As soon as you step off the aircraft you will be able to smell the aroma of the native herbs which grow along the roads and in the fields which are close to Kefalonia airport.
