Kefalonia ... a truly love story !!!

The dazzling beauty of Kefalonia became worldwide known after the famous Hollywood movie “Captain Corelli's Mandolin”.The island’s untouched beauty, idyllic settings, traditional settlements and tranquility were the principal reasons that made it the perfect place for shooting the love story set against the turbulence of World War II. The village of Sami hosted most of the shooting but many scenes also took place on the beaches of Myrtos and Antisamos, as well as other smaller villages.

Kefalonia literally is a well preserved, unspoiled paradise… lush vegetation, dazzling beaches hued with breathtaking contrasts of deep blue, exotic white and overwhelming green colours, romantic sunsets and scenic landscapes.
