kefalonia greece

Many people first heard of Kefalonia from reading Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernières...

The novel recorded the island's wartime travails but the middle of the 20th century dealt numerous blows to this large island off Greece's west coast: Italian invasion, German occupation, civil war, and a devastating earthquake!

There is now a burgeoning tourist industry here and we are pleased to recommend F Zeen for luxury adult-only holidays with daily yoga beside the coast, and a selection of handpicked private villas for you to rent - ranging from 2 to 5 bedrooms.  For example, see 5 bedroom Villa Amethyst.

Like its neighbouring Ionian islands, Kefalonia (sometimes spelt Cephalonia) enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean climate and is at it httest (and driest) during the summer.  We particularly like it off-season in late Spring and early Autumn.

Weather & Seasons

Kefalonia is home to a glorious Mediterranean climate and, like its neighbouring Ionian islands, the seasons each have distinct weather.

The best time to come is summer, when temperatures are high, sunshine hours are at their peak and rain is almost non-existent. However this is also the time that most tourists arrive, so you may prefer to visit during the off-peak seasons for a quieter holiday and potentially better deals.

Summer and early autumn are ideal for swimming in the sea, as it’s at its warmest.

Spring on Kefalonia is a very pleasant time to visit, with slightly cooler temperatures than autumn but often sunnier and drier. Spring enjoys highs of 14°C to 22°C, rising as the season progresses. Springtime visitors can expect 8 to 12 hours of sunlight per day and lovely conditions. The sea temperature rises from 15°C to 19°C over the course of the season.
