I love Kefalonia, by Anna

It will be 5 years soon that I moved here, to this unique place. There have been some happy days and some very bad days… but all these 5 years the beauty of Kefalonia was always here to help me overcome and smile.

It is my best friend! It is always standing by me, it is never the same, alternates every moment, as I get bored easily, it gives you energy instead of other places that drag it from you, it offers you special moments for free, it always welcomes you, no invitation needed, it teaches you, it feeds you, it calms you down, it cures your soul, it gives you ideas, it opens your mind, it lets you express yourself without guilt.

Nature is the best psychoanalyst, you just need to dive your body into the ionian sea, dry on the white warm pebbles under the hot sun and things will look much better at once!

Sunsets, starry nights, lush nature, breathtaking landscape, smells, tastes, sounds, colors, traces from the past, clean your thoughts, open your mind, give you energy…

    Thank you, stunning photos, we will be in Aghia Efimia for 2 months this year (Sept & Oct) I don’t know what is the most magical, I truly believe there is fairy dust in the water.

    The above message (“I love Kefalonia”) is exactly what I have in my mind, but would not be able to express it the way you did. “Nature is the best psychoanalyst”- wow ! it really is, I feel exactly the same way:)……
    Anyway, fantastic web site, very well organised, true and useful descriptions (Myrtos is not safe, as you said, I had this experience myself…but is absolutely gorgeous -for me comparable to Egremni at Lefkada, ) and fabulous pictures !
    I’m very happy to have spotted this website – just returned from Kefalonia 3 weeks ago and I already miss it! But your web page helps me come back to this exquisite place. I will definitely keep returning to your page:)
    Good luck, Anna, and thanks very much for the possibilty to share the beauty of Kefalonia, although via internet.

        Greetings from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
        I came across your site accidentally, and even without seeing it in real life, I love every piece of it and of how you describe the entire island.
        If I ever get a chance I will 100% come to visit and look forward to meeting you and your team. I am sure I will love the island just as all the other visitors have loved Kefalonia.
        Keep up the wonderful job you are doing.
        Kind regards,

    Hi Anna
    I’ve just come across your Blog and have been reading it with delight . You seem to know the island very well !
    So nice that you love the Island so much .My husband and myself are seriously thinking of buying a house which we have found and permanently move to Kefalonia . We love the Island very much . We have not explored it that much though and I can see how much there is to explore . I just hope I don’t get bored but I don’t think so . I believe there is a large British community living on the Island and I guess some of them might get together . Would be great to let me know your thoughts .I love all you have written about the Island. You are very talented! Best regards Nicole from Sussex
