Comments Off on For winter sun try booking Tenerife holidays

Kefalonia is obviously our holiday destination of choice, we love the Greek way of life and few destinations in the world are as beautiful as this great island. One thing Kefalonia does not offer however is year round sunshine. During the winter months the resorts in Kefalonia wind down as the colder weather sets in and tourist numbers dwindle until the holiday season starts each April. So if tourists arent visiting Kefalonia as much in the winter months where do they go to get their sunshine fix? Tenerife is the answer!

While Tenerife is a Spanish island and has a culture that most Brits will be familiar with, it is actually located just off the north coast of Africa making its climate one of the warmest in Europe.

Tenerifeholidays.co.uk is one of our sister websites and just like Kefalonia.co.uk it has been developed to help holidaymakers find the lowest prices when booking their holiday in Tenerife. It details the very best accommodation on the island and enables you to find great deals on flights, hotels and packages holidays, all from the comfort of your home computer.

So if you are looking to book a holiday in the sun at this time of year why not give Tenerife a try. With around 400 hotels in Tenerife in the most popular holiday resorts all around the island available for your selection you will find booking your trip abroad a dream! So go on – treat yourself to a winter sun holiday in Tenerife, but remember in the Summer for us it will always have to be a holiday in Greece!

Comments Off on Cheaper holidays in Greece and Kefalonia

Kefalonia.co.uk are pleased to announce their new range of Greek Island holidays. As well as offering fantastic deals to the island of Kefalonia we now bring you cheap holidays to many other islands as well. Our holiday search scans over 40 top travel agents offers and brings you the best deals available.

Since the banking crisis has affected Greece the holiday prices have taken a tumble, prices are currently down by 11% however some commentators believe this tumble may hit 20% before the summer is out.

When Iceland suffered a similar crisis in its banking system the government attempted to prop up the industry by lowering tourist prices something many feel the Greek government will do to bolster their economy. Furthermore the pound has made gains against the euro recently of up to 10% giving you more value for money when travelling and with Taverne owners already lowering prices to encourage tourists away from self catering holidays a trip to Greece will probably never be cheaper.

Some minor celebrities are taking full advantage of the lower prices. Former Big Brother and reality star Chanttel Hayes was pictured enjoying a Greek holiday on the islands. The mother to be, a 22-year-old reality TV star who found fame in the Big Brother house obviously felt that now was the time to take a trip to Greece.

Of course for many a quieter beach will be a bonus as you will be able to enjoy the best spots without any reason to struggle for space and not everyone enjoys the bustle that a crowded summer in Greece can bring.

Islands such as Kefalonia seem to be less affected by the downturn but are still quieter holiday destinations than they were last year. The Greek government shows us that tourists worries are unfounded and that is a holiday to Greece, Corfu or one of the other Greek islands are perfectly safe on a financial level and with them being better value than ever now is a great time to book your Greek or Kefalonia holidays in the sun.

Melissani Underground Cave Make Your Kefalonia Holidays Special

Comments Off on Melissani Underground Cave Make Your Kefalonia Holidays Special

The Lake Melissani is one of Kefalonia’s most wonderful and popular tourist attractions for those taking Kefalonia holidays. The cave itself was formed millions of years ago when the roof of the cave system collapsed into the lake below it exposing the clear blue water to the glorious sunshine above. When the sun’s rays hit the water the resulting flash of turquoise blue sunlight flowing through the water is something that has to be seen to be believed.

The cavern itself used to be to split into two separate caves which over time have joined together to form a giant B shape with two immense underground lakes joining together with an island in the middle. The first cave is oval with a opening in its roof where the sunshine flows in. When the rays strike the water they cascade through producing the blue lights on which your boat appears to hover.

The surrounding walls and ceilings of the lakes are covered with stalactites and stalagmites and your journey from the sea through the underground caverns is spectacular. Each tour is done by boat, normally a small rowing boat or gondolier, however some tour guides use a rope to pull their boat through the chambers.

The caves themselves were first explored in 1951 by Ioannis Petrocheilos however the entrance tunnel was not built until 1963 at which point the cave was opened to the public and became a tourist attraction on the island of Kefalonia.

When you visit for holidays in Kefalonia it is recommended that you at least take a trip up to the underground lakes as the tour itself is not expensive and they will make your Kefalonia holiday experience that little bit more special especially if the weather is fantastic as it normally is Kefalonia and you can enjoy relaxing journey through the caves.

Comments Off on Small fire hits Kefalonia – Kefalonia holidays are not affected

It has been reported that today a small forest fire has broken out in the Minies region of Kefalonia which is in the hills near the capital city of Argastoli.

The fire apparently broke out at around 14.20 and was attended by fire crews with around 10 firefighters and three special fire vehicles as they attemted to quell the flames. it is not believed that any tourists are at threat and the fire is now under control.

Most years small fires break out in Greece as the weather is spectacular and the wonderful sunshine heat means that the area is prone to fire risks however it is very rare that the fires spread and holidaymakers are threatened and we do not suspect that this fire is any different as the fire crews seem to have it under control.

Comments Off on Kefalonia is a beautiful destination in the Greek Isles

The Greek islands offer spectacular beauty making them the ideal solution for those looking for a holiday with an additional outlook one reporter has recently described.

A Niamh Hopkins writing for the Herald.ie described her trip to Greece as giving a delightful setting and relaxing ambience.

Describing her time on holiday she said that she had an “amazing time” enjoying the great food and view that were simply fantastic.

When describing her time in Greece she said: “”I would definitely go back to Greece. Certain islands were the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited and I would highly recommend it.”

Her days were spent enjoying the baking sun, relaxing around the swimming pool and spending pleasant warm evenings during her fourteen week stay.

Such a comment from an established writer is certainly an accolade for Greece and should encourage visitors to its shores.

Recently another writer in America Markos Papadatos commented that Kefalonia was the best and most beautiful of the Ionian islands with famous sunsets and sandy beaches making it a holiday hotspot.

Kefalonia Holidays – Kefalonia sees a big increase in holiday bookings

Comments Off on Kefalonia Holidays – Kefalonia sees a big increase in holiday bookings

This week it has been reported that the holiday island of Kefalonia has seen a huge increase in visitors to its shores along with the other popular Greek holiday islands including Zante, Crete and Corfu.

Nadine Hallak a travel expert for the flight comparison website “cheapflights.co.uk” reported that flights to the islands had become increasingly popular with Kefalonia showing the largest rise at 42%.

Overall flight searches for the country of Greece were up by 32% as holiday makes looked to take advantage of the strengthened pound and the lower holiday prices in Greece and its islands which have been caused in part by the poor economic situation in Greece.

While the Greek government has assured us that Kefalonia Holidays and holidays to the Greek islands are perfectly safe financially as the country tries to steady its financial situation the prices of holidays have fallen dramatically.

Initially prices dropped as tourists were cautious to make bookings while their was uncertainty in Greece’s financial state however as things have calmed the Greeks have deliberately continued to lower holiday prices to encourage the tourist industry to become stronger, taking advantage of the situation to boost revenue and to help prop up the balance sheets.

We are not sure how long the prices will remain this low however it would seem that now is the perfect time to take a holiday in one of the Greek islands with Kefalonia holidays being the most popular destination of choice. Kefalonia.co.uk has a huge selection of holidays from the UK’s top tour operators flying to the Greek islands and Kefalonia.
