Sunday Times top tip for Kefalonia

A top tip for travellers to Kefalonia: watch out for traffic jams. We had driven only a few miles north from our villa to the dramatic, far-flung tip of the Ionian island and my wife was enjoying the calm of the open road. Moments later, our car halted for an unexpected welcoming party: a parade of weather-beaten billy goats gruff, all gangly horns, boxer teeth and Ming the Merciless beards. There must have been at least 100 of the road hoggers.

Kefalonia - and its goats - seems popular with the press, nice piccie in the Mail:

Kefalonia for first timers

Immortalised in the Hollywood film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, the largest Ionian island lures a huge crowd. That said, you can still feel at one with nature in the parks, fir tree forests, and the endless beaches. It’s a perfect entree to the Greek islands.

Don’t miss: The tiny port of Fiskardo, known for its charming 18th Century buildings and fish restaurants, such as Apagio and Panormos, which flank the water’s edge.

If you fancy escaping the heat for a while, head to the subterranean Lake Melissani, with its magical light formations and cool slabs of rock. And the nearby cave of Drogarati, which is 200ft underground, is so renowned for its acoustics that orchestras are known to hold concerts there.

Fans of Constantine Cavafy’s poem Ithaka, or Homer-lovers like me, will want to take a 40-minute ferry trip to the rugged island of Ithaka, the mythical home of Odysseus.

Top tip: Hire a car so that you can enjoy the sheer freedom of cresting mountainous coastal roads – but watch out for stray goats.
