What are the prices like of hotels, food, and experiences? Is it affordable?
Prices at most of the popular Greek islands (Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, etc.) tend to be expensive in tourist areas. Islands in general tend to have higher prices on everything due to everything having to be shipped into an island.

Since whether pricing is expensive is subjective, I would recommend pricing things out like accommodations first, this generally will give you an idea of costs, but again more popular Greek islands during peak travel season, will be more expensive than off peak times.

Hope this helps and good luck planning your trip to Kefalonia!

To me, about the same as most islands besides the well known very touristy islands, like Mykonos, Santorini etc...
Lots of nice tavernas every where you go but don't expect to find 5 star Hotels. Of course everything is more expensive summer months then again who wants to go there in winter.

Agreed, perhaps September/October might be a bit more affordable if its convenient for you to take vacation then

From what I understand, it is about the same. A larger island like Kefalonia I think may be slightly less expensive than Santorini because in Kefalonia, they grow a lot more of their own food, etc, so not as much needs top be shipped over. But, it all depends on demands placed on the island by the tourist season.

Always there is special deals
Do you have any specific hotel recommendations?
Just teĺl me the days you want and the area in Kefalonia
 

Have you been to the Monastery of Themata in Kefalonia?

This monastery is one of the oldest landmarks on the island. I was so shocked to find out that it was originally built in 1096. It has been restored over time, of course, but much of the monastery remains in good condition. The name behind the monastery is debated, and its true origin is actually unknown. I've never been, but I have been doing a little bit of research about the monastery and I'm considering a visit when I go to Kefalonia this year. Has anyone on the forum been to the monastery or perhaps the nearby area of Agia Dinati Mountain?

Have you tried Mandola? Its Kefalonias most famous sweet

Mandola is a very popular sweet in Kefalonia and it is one of the biggest exports from the island. This treat is made of almond, honey, sugar and egg whites. The dessert has a few different variations, but is usually gluten free! The ingredients are very simple which is why they are so allergen friendly. I was doing some research and apparently these cookies are originally from the Venetian occupation in Kefalonia.

kefalonia best area to stay

Does anyone recommend where the nicest part of Kefalonia is to stay with nice beaches not fishing villages or ports

Have you seen drogarati cave in Kefalonia?

Drogarati cave is the kid that has existed for centuries, but was discovered only 300 years ago and is open for tourists!! You may find this cave a little bit spooky, or absolutely beautiful. It has many stalegtites and stalelmites that cover the cave. The cave was even used during World War II if you can believe it. Take a guided tour, where someone will explain to you the history of the cave and the uses during the war. Here are some links for more info

Have you ever been to the Castle of Assos in Kefalonia?

The Castle of Assos is an old Venetian fortress that has been left over from the Italian occupation of the island. Today, it is a beautiful pile of ruins that tourists can visit and learn about the history of Greece. You can hire a guy to take you around the different parts and explain the history, but I don't really recommend them as most of the information is available online if you're willing to do your own research. Please let me know if you've ever been! I would love to learn about what you thought of the castle.
