Argostoli, the heart of Kefalonia
As well as being the capital of the popular holiday island, Argostoli is also its main port. This not only means it gets some of the freshest food of the surrounding areas, but that there's also plenty to do and see. Spend your time in the popular Platia Vallinou square and mingle with tourists and locals alike as you get a real taste of what Kefalonia is really like.
Holidays to Argostoli are beautiful
Sitting just 9 miles from the airport and other major transport networks, Argostoli is well situated to allow you to visit many other areas of the island, but it also means that when you arrive, you can get straight down to what you should be doing; holiday making.
Of course no island getaway would be complete without a beach, so don't be surprised to find that that Argostoli has several to choose from. Most of them are hidden away in little covers, giving them a wonderfully secluded feel. Nearby Lassi is where some can be found and they're certainly worth the trip, but you needn't go so far as this resort has its own too.
If you're the kind of holiday maker that likes to experience everything a local culture has to offer, then you'd be hard pressed to avoid the fantastic food that the island of Kefalonia offers. With a wide spread of well stocked and staffed restaurants, cafes and bars, there's plenty of opportunities to try the impressive variety of local cuisine as well as some more international dishes.
