Feb 27, 2008
There are plenty of different styles of holiday homes in Kefallonia, which one can rent for your vacation. This is because it is one of the largest of all the Islands that make up Greece and the name itself when translated into English means "Island with a Head". Certainly if you were to go into space, you will see why it means what it does.

There are numerous Greek Islands that one can visit. However, this one seems to be one of the most popular with tourists. They come not only to spend time exploring the many beautiful unspoilt villages on the island, but also to spend time relaxing on the stunning beaches that the island has as well.

However as well as spending time exploring the villages and beaches on this island during your vacation there is plenty more that one can do. Below we look at some of the other attractions that may interest you when visiting and staying on the Island of Kefallonia.

1. Cave of Drogarati - This is one of the largest and oldest stalagmatic caves to be found in the world today. In fact, historians believe that this cave is around 150 million years old. Within the cave, there is the Concert Cave that is situated 150 feet below the ground and is known for having really good acoustics.

2. The Church of Saint Gerasimos - This particular church is located near to the village of Lassi and is built out of a natural cave. Saint Gerassimos after who the church is named was believed to have lived here until he moved to the Omala Valley in order to reorganize the monastery (Agios Gerassimos) that was located in it.

3. The Kefallonia Archaeological Museum - This museum is located in the town of Argostoli and contains many artefacts and antiquities that have been discovered on the island. It covers the islands history from pre-historic times through to the period when the Romans were living on it.

4. The Agios Andreas Monastery - A very important building as it was part of the Katholikon Nunnery that had stood at the place until 1953. Unfortunately, there was a huge earthquake at this time and the only building that remained standing afterwards was the monastery. Attached to the Monastery is a museum which has become even more important as in 1988 the sole of the right foot of the Apostle Andrew was brought to it and remains there to this day.

So as you can see from above there is plenty more for you to do rather than lazy by the side of your holiday homes in Kefallonia swimming pool. In fact, you may find that you need to return to the island several times in order for you to really find out what this place really has to offer.
