In line with our latest idea of sharing some good news about independent businesses that we share an affinity with, this is the place you should have a look at going to when all of this Covid-19 has passed. The beautiful Chuscal on Kefalonia!
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is considered the jewel in the crown with beautiful crystal clear waters, clean, award- winning beaches, lush green forests and mountains which are home to Cypress, Pine and Olive Trees. Despite it being the largest island it still very much retains its natural local charm, relaxed lifestyle and delicious Greek cuisine.
The island has become a popular destination with families and couples alike and is littered with exotic beaches including; Myrtos, Antisamos, Lourdas and Skala to name but a few and boasts a plethora of sites to feast upon, such as the ancient Drongareti or Melissani caves, Assos Castle and the picturesque town of Fiskardo, which was one of the few places unaffected by the devastating earthquake of 1953 preserving the beautiful Venetian architecture adorned in pastel colours.
The heart of Kefalonia, Agostoli, set on the harbour with a stunning mountainous backdrop, takes on a more cosmopolitan feel, with a mixture of shops, cafés and bars; a morning stroll along the promenade more often than not results in the resident turtles making a cheeky appearance!
