Kefalonia island has so much to offer that it could never be possible to be explored not only in one day, but even in several days’ period. All you want from your holidays to Kefalonia 2014 is to rest in one of our Unique luxury villas in Kefalonia and the fabulous beaches, willing to spend just one day to see the island. Follow our steps and explore the highlights of Kefalonia in one day:
Start your day early in the morning and hire a car. Drive to the area of Omala and visit the monastery of the Patron Saint, Agios Gerasimos, while enjoying the lush green nature on your way there. On the monastery, you can see the Saint’s relics as well as the small underground cave where he lived his hermit life. 400 m far from the monastery, stop by the Robola Wine Co-operative, visit the vineyards and the wine-making facilities and taste Robola, the renown local wine. Move on your drive heading towards Sami and enjoy the natural scenery at Ainos National Park. Just before the town of Sami, at Karavomilos Village, you definitely have to pay a visit to the majestic Melissani Cave Lake, take a ride on a boat tour and enjoy inspiring moments in the heart of a fascinating natural phenomenon.
Continue your drive to the picturesque settlement of Agia Efimia, where you will find traditional cafes and small taverns, ideal place to stop and refill your energy. Then, drive through Pylaros Valley, reach the natural balcony above Myrtos and marvel at the extraordinary view of one the most beautiful beaches worldwide. Possibly, it ‘s sunset time, do not miss the chance to witness the sun fading into the Ionian Sea from up there! If there is some time left before dusk, do not hesitate to drive down to the beach for a quick dip in its turquoise waters.
