Cheap Kefalonia holidays take you to a very beautiful island which lies close to the west coast of mainland Greece. Surrounded by the Ionian Sea, Kefalonia has a wonderful landscape of mountains and forested hills and plains, great beaches and warm, clear seas. Although the series of earthquakes in 1953 destroyed many structures, sparing only the north of the island, Kefalonia still has many buildings of historical interest and archaeological remains. If you are seeking a relaxing break where the sun is guaranteed to shine, where the welcome is warm and where you can experience a traditional Greek atmosphere, a bargain Kefalonia holiday may be just the ticket.
Low cost airlines now operate from many regional airports. Use Cheeky Trip price comparison site to see if there are flights to Kefalonia from your own local airport. Have breakfast under grey skies, take an early flight and you can enjoy an al fresco lunch overlooking the peaceful waters of the Ionian Sea. The season lasts from April until October with average temperatures rising to thirty at the height of summer. The island terrain is ideal for those seeking a more active holiday such as hiking or cycling. Early and late season when the mercury reaches a more temperate level and the prices are also lower, are the best times for such activities.
Cheap Kefalonia holidays have accommodation to suit all budgets. Whichever you choose you can be sure standards of comfort are high and service is very good. Don't assume that the all-inclusive option will be too expensive as you may find they offer surprisingly good value, especially when travelling with children. The constant clamour for snacks of ever hungry and thirsty children can be costly and it is easy to go over budget. Kefalonia restaurants and tavernas, in common with all Greek islands, provide good food at reasonable cost that caters for all tastes. If you are new to Greek cuisine order meze, the equivalent of Spanish tapas, and you can enjoy a delicious variety of traditional dishes. Fish of course features prominently on menus and is fresh from the morning catch. Local wines are as pleasing to the palate and they are to the purse.
Nightlife is, for the most part, fairly low key as the island is as relaxed by night as it is by day. Those who enjoy a little retail therapy whilst on holiday will be pleased with the shops and markets of Argostoli and Lixouri where they can purchase their gifts and souvenirs.
While enjoying your bargain Kefalonia break, do make time to visit the Melissani underground lake, the Drogarati caves and the beautiful Koutavos lagoon.
