But you've just seen it in person, because you are standing on Myrtos Beach on the Greek island of Cephalonia. Cephalonia, also known as Kefalonia, is home to some of the most interesting and diverse natural phenomena. The island itself is mountainous, with homes and towns clustered along the shore or nestled in the hills. Here you can find some lovely Kefalonia holiday homes and Kefalonia villas. You'll also find some truly spectacular caves, especially the Melissani Cave with a stunning blue lake in the center. Cephalonia also boasts ancient Roman ruins that are certainly worth the visit. If you've ever watched the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin, or read the book, you may recognise the landscape. Cephalonia is the setting for the novel, and also where the movie was filmed. This has drawn a large increase in visitors since the film, as many people want to experience the beauty of Cephalonia for themselves. Whether you've come for the swimming, to admire the endanged loggerhead turtles nesting on the protected beach at Kaminia, or just to marvel at the beauty of the island of Cephalonia, one thing is certain: you'll arrive home relaxed and refreshed from your magnificent Kefalonia holidays. Cephalonia holiday homes, Cephalonia apartments, and Cephalonia villas are a great place to spend your Cephalonia holidays, so book yours today!
