The Island of Kefalonia
Located on the west coast of Greece, Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands. Villa Aloni is found in Matsoukata, in the north of the island. Nestled within the hills above Fiskardo, the quaint, low key village of Matsoukata enjoys a peaceful setting amongst olive groves and cypress trees. Situated only a few kilometres away from the charming colourful, Venetian harbour of Fiskardo on the north-east coast, Matsoukata is perfectly placed to explore the many coves, bays and villages the north of Kefalonia has to offer.
Car hire is a must to appreciate the full diversity of the island. There are villages like Assos, dominated by the remains of a Venetian castle or the spectacular Drogorati Caves. Myrtos Bay, the beach where the La Scala boys cavorted with Italian girls in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, is just a short drive from the villa. Or you can drive off to a secluded taverna for a Kefalonian pie washed down with a glass of Robola, the locally-produced and much-acclaimed white wine.
