A clean and friendly island blessed with a breathtakingly beautiful landscape of lush forests, high cliffs, and cerulean seas. This is what greeted me on arrival at the island of Kefalonia. The towns on the island are rather small and easy to get round, although, most of them have lost their authentic look to modern concrete constructions after being devastated by an earthquake in 1953. I stayed in Lourdas but made the tour of the island with a rental car.
Argostoli was nice for the big square.
From Argostoli, we went north to Fiscardo, a lovely village with colourful walls, nice port but long from the rest of Kefalonia (It took a bit less than 2 hours to go from Argostoli to Fiscardo and got lost a couple of times on the way).
Beaches in Kefalonia are amazing all over, no to miss are Myrtos, Xi and Lourdas. In the taverns I tasted the best local meat pie and also nicest moussaka was at Oskars on the Fanari road in Lassi.
I recommend Oskars as the best place to visit, very good family, best food, good atmosphere.
