(September 2014) With prices starting from €599 per villa and discounts of up to 20%, autumn is the perfect time to explore Kefalonia with family owned and managed Kefalonia villa specialist Unique Villas. With average temperatures reaching highs of 26°C, travellers can chase the sun this autumn without the jet lag on a short haul break to the idyllic Ionian island which shot to fame in Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.

Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the many mountains and nature parks and take part in off the beaten track walking trails through cool pine forests. The peak of Mount Ainos is a designated National Park where wild ponies and Kefalonian Pine can be found.

For nature lovers, Kefalonia is also home to the Caretta Carreta Turtle, which nests on the island’s beaches throughout the summer months. This autumn, visitors can take a memorable candlelit tour of Kaminia beach to watch them hatch.

The Gentilini Winery and Vineyard offers tours throughout the autumn which can be arranged via the Unique Villas concierge service, ideal for wine lovers. Autumn is also the beginning of the olive pressing season. For those looking to experiment with the oil, the Unique Villas concierge service can arrange for guests to experience an in-villa autumnal Greek cookery class.

The highlight of the autumn months is undoubtedly the Feast of St. Gerasimos, the island’s patron saint, which takes place annually in October. This island-wide celebration involves parading St. Gerasimos’ remains through the streets in a gilded tomb, before eating, drinking, music and dancing.
