I am certaintly with you. I love Kefalonia.Kefalonia is still mainly unspoilt, has fantastic scenery, and isn't popular with the Club 18-30 crowd - it's mainly older farts like me. It gets higher than average rainfall so is more green and lush rather than rocky and barren. The locals are brilliant - respectful and welcoming rather than pushy. Skala's a good place to stay. Have a day trip out to Fiskardo.
About 4hrs flight time from Manchester.
