Hey everyone, I'm looking to find some small villages in Kefalonia to visit while I'm there. I really like to travel on the offbeat and path and get to know locals, is there anywhere I can do that on the island? I'm super adventurous and open to anything. The more authentic the better.

Agia Effimia is a pretty little village off the beaten path.

The Iakovitios Library which is located in a village called Lixouri in Kefalonia is a good place to visit for sure!

Agia Efimina is so beautiful!! If you want to explore the coastline you can rent a boat and see the various beaches and coves, may of which are secluded and only accessible this way. Another way to enjoy the waters of this village is to go diving. There are 13 dive sites on the village!!

Assos is one of the hidden gems on the island. It’s quite a zig zag drive through mountainous terrain but well worth the trip when you turn the last corner and this magical paradise comes into sight. Enjoy ☺️

I loved going to Fiscado which also has its own Nautical and Environmental Museum where you can learn about the nautical history of Fiscardo! So cool!

If you are near Argostoli you could visit Fragkata and look for the old ruined village houses - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place...56b7530d44a1d62!8m2!3d38.1780109!4d20.5773168 - then continue through the Omala Valley to the Monastery of St Gerasimos (patron saint of Kefalonia). Also try Farakalata and Dilinata for a village feel with a mix of modern and old pre earthquake properties.

If you are on the other side of the island try Drakoupalata near Agia Efimia and also make your way up to Themata Monastery for some amazing views.

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

Hiking up Mount Ainos in Kefalonia

This is one of the best hikes you can do on the island, and in the region for sure. It can be a bit difficult for those who aren't experienced, so I do recommend that you hike in a group or with a tour guide. Of course, you don't have to hike all the way up and you can travel part of the way by car. What's important is that you enjoy the views and you do as much as you can. This video showcases the stunning views for anyone who is interested in going.

Weather in October in kefelonia

Hi there would like to visit during the uk half term from 21st October but could you tell me what the weather is usually like and if the bars and restaurants are still open at this time of year. Thank you

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.

Check out Agia Efimia, Kefalonia

Agia Efimia is a small village on the coast of Kefalonia with amazing beaches and restaurants and hotels. One of the most highly rated restaurants in the village is To Steki, which means "the hangout." The food is so fresh and I highly recommend that you visit after spending some time at the beach :)
