First to Review

In the UK we call the island Cephalonia, whilst others call it Kefalonia. The island came to international prominence following the publication of Louis de Berniere's novel Captain Correlli's Mandolin, which was filmed on the island.

The scenery is stunning.

The island is perfect for touring with a moped/car, as the individual town's are rather small, and there isn't a lot of activity to keep your interest. We based ourselves in Skala, hired a jeep, and travelled to different locations on a daily basis, and returned to our hotel each evening.
