We have not yet discovered all of Europe. Not even Greek islands. The island of Kefalonia in the Ionian Sea can now offer us its wild beauty in a straight line thanks to the direct flights set up by Transavia.
Kefalonia is the largest island in the Ionian Sea. The island of a hundred beaches with crystal clear waters and 250 kilometers of coastline No need to pile up on the same ones. But it is also the island of forests, mountains, lakes, canyons and caves. Needless to say that lovers of navigation or water sports of all kinds will largely find their account there, as well as other visitors, as the variety of natural sites is great.
The island will also delight culture lovers with its Cyclopean walls in Razata, the archaeological museum in Argostoli, the cemeteries of the Mycenaean period in Mazarakata, not to mention Greek Orthodox churches and monasteries. You may even be surprised by the baroque and neoclassical Roman architecture and the traditional Venetian mansions. Not to mention the ubiquitous music. The hotel industry, on site, is made up of small accommodation units of all levels rather than large resorts.
A little dive into the Odyssey? Who knows, indeed, if a new generation Ulysses is not waiting for us on the nearby island of Ithaca to the northeast of Kefalonia…
In the meantime, this island will attract a growing number of visitors to its traditional villages, its fir forests, its countless beaches, its chasms and its mountains, favoring the life of hundreds of rare species in its flora and fauna.
Transavia has set up two direct flights per week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays from April to October from Paris-Orly to Kefalonia in connection with mainland Greece. Flight duration: 3 hours. From Kefalonia boats leave daily for Kyllini, Patras and Astako
