After bouncing our hire car down a heavily pot-holed track we found - well very little really. most of the walls have long gone, you do get some idea of the size of stones they once contained and were obviously hugely impressive in their day, but unless you're an archeological junkie I wouldn't bother with the detour.
Didn't bother with the walk up to the castle - it was too hot, but loved the village. Sat in a wonderful shady taverna by the sea sharing a fab Greek salad washed down with a couple of bottles of Mythos - Well worth visiting.
I agree it's ashame about the vandalism but it's still pretty impressive. If you can time it as we did before any coach trips arrive you might be as lucky as we were and have it to yourselves. That way you can belt out a song and really appreciate the fantastic acoustics. Cool in every sense.
You can sit at a table in the square as we did one night, or sit in a lovely outdoor area down the road toward the harbour as we did another night. Either way the food is superb and the Greek Paysan Pizza is the best I've ever tasted.
Okay the boat trip doesn't last much longer than ten minutes but that doesn't diminish the beauty of the place. You're given a pictorial guide booklet as part of your admission which tells you everything you want to know so just sit back in the boat and enjoy the banter and singing of your boat-man - all the better for being in Greek. With a hire car you can do this, the caves and Sami and have a great day out.
This was one of our best eating experiences in Kefalonia. The location is stunning and well worth the walk up the steps from the beach. The food was superb and the house red - unlike some other places - was very palatble indeed especially at 8 euros fora litre. Argostoli offers some excellent restaurants but for good cuisine in a fabulous setting Lorraine's takes some beating.
This was our favourite beach in Kefalonia. Mainly sand, hardly any shingle, it slopes gently into the water and is superb for swimming. It's wonderfully long too and you can walk along the water's edge for miles although you are likely to encounter the ocassional nudists bathing in the quieter sections the further you walk. It's quiet too and although we were there in June we had the feeling it would never get too busy even in high season.
