I have been to Kefalonia before..Its amazing.Have you seen Captain Corelli?It is very quiet,romantic island and the sea is as blue as I have ever seen it.I have been to six Greek islands and this is the best.Lourdas has great reviews but is very hilly.The beach is beautiful and very long.My mum just came back and she went to Lourdas to check it out for me and she says its fantastic.
Just to add to Kate and John Taylors(lovely people who we met from Manchester) comments, we too had a great time..although the weather did change from sunny skies to mad thunder storms-very unusual at this time of year but we kept on laughing.Our apartment was clean and comfortable and the view of the mountain was beautiful! The walk to the beach however was a trek and back up was quite something for me,having the car was a god send!!!The restaurants were not disappointing and the Cephallonia Pie was just delicious!!To Kate and John :hope you are both well and enjoying married life..Lou and Kev XXXX
