...We had been to Kefalonia about 14 years ago, our first experience of Greece, when re stayed at Lassi.
This time it would be Skala as Family/Friends going there for birthday.anniversery celebrations.

Review of Skala, Kefalonia
Advantages: Stunning scenery and an unspolit landscape Disadvantages: None
...It seems hard to imagine that less than 48 hours ago I was standing on the top of a mountain top village, Markopoulo in Kefalonia, watching the procession of church goers following the priest into the picturesque church.

Advantages: Great food, scenery, quiet, fantastic beaches Disadvantages: Bad airport
...I went to Kefalonia for a week at the beginning of July 2005.
The weather was very hot and dry, about 39 degrees celsius, which for me was too hot. The locals said the weather was usually well over 40 degrees at that time of year.
I went to the resort of Skala with Kosmar. Airport transfer was just over an hour but take travelsick pills , as it's a journey with a lot of hairpin bends.
