10 Stunning photos from Kefalonia, Greece

 

I fell in love with Kefalonia.  Madly, deeply in love with an island that up until now hadn't really been on my radar.  Kefalonia is one of the Ionian Islands on the west coast of Greece, and a stand out favourite of mine, due to its rugged green landscapes and mind blowing beaches.  This year I was lucky enough to travel there for my birthday, and was left stunned by the picturesque views, charming villages, magical forests hidden on the tops of the mountains and the jaw dropping blue water, that kisses the white sand shores of this island.

To discover more about my trip to Kefalonia, and how you too can discover this Greek Paradise, head over to my blog page and experience Kefalonia for yourself.

But for now; A preview of what to expect when travelling around this wonderful, exquisite island.
