Discover Kefalonia With Kids – 6 Reasons to Visit

Discover Kefalonia with kids on your next family holiday. Whether travelling with toddlers, teenagers, Kefalonia is the perfect family Island.

For me, Greece is all about its islands. I’ve visited Athens and loved Santorini, watching those classic white island houses appear above that sparkling blue sea is at the heart of my favourite memories. A few years back, with friends, we Island hopped around Greece, picking accommodation as we hopped from one Island to another. Years later, we visited Kefalonia. This is where our love affair with Kefalonia and Greece began.
