I just got back after a two week vacation in Kefalonia. And I already have a reservation for next year. The place is incredibly beautiful with large patches of greenery, fine beaches, underground lakes and caves, churches, castles, monasteries and charming villages, where the traditional way of life still exists. Unlike some other islands in Greece, hopefully Kefalonia hasn’t fallen prey to the package tourism sharks. It was off season, of course, and tourists were few, but I noticed that the island was authentic and rural. Maybe the big size is a plus. Most beaches were secluded in late April, even the famous Myrtos, and tourists were all foreigners. The Greeks apparently prefer July and August for holidays, not spring. As for prices, they seemed surprisingly! I don’t know if it is Kefalonia that has low prices, or if the Greeks want to attract tourists and get their prices low (which is very good, because prices in Greece seemed uncontrollable over the last years!) but we stayed and ate for burgain! We booked Oskars studio in Lassi for a week, rented a car for 30 euros three days and 27 euros was the highest amount we paid for a meal for 2. It seemed that the Greeks have just started to understand that apart from nice locations, tourists also want low prices to come to Greece! Next step is to lower the ferry tickets, too!
