Touring the island

This is our 4th year on Kefalonia and truly love it. This year we would like to explore a little inland as could anyone tell us if any villages or sights not to be missed

Hi and welcome,

In the South visit Kourkourmelata village.


In the middle drive to the top of Mount Ainos

Also visit St Gerasimos Monastery and nearby the ruined village of Old Valsamata

In the north the village of Karya is nothing special but Rosie's cafe/bar is great with fantastic views down towards Assos. The owner also grows, dries and sells her own organic herbs.

Drive to the Paliki peninsula and just explore and get lost. The villages there are different.

Just a few places not on the coast,

Definitely explore Paliki. Atheras, Lepeda, Vatsa. The drive up to Thermata monestry is beautiful it above Agia Effimia. If you come south take the road up to Aragania and through the villages down to Poros the views are spectacular.
