However, for a sophisticated holiday experienced travel writers are focussing their discerning attention more keenly on Kefalonia, and rightly so.   At the heart of Kefalonia you will find the Port town of Sami and the spacious Walnut Tree Villa.

Part of the charm for travellers to Kefalonia is the unspoilt beauty, tranquillity, great cuisine – of course, always freshly prepared with the finest local produce.  From the serenity of Walnut Tree Villa where you can effortlessly recharge, you are conveniently situated for fine dining.  From traditional village Taverna’s, high end hotels, to romantic quay side restaurants with stunningly breath taking views.  The challenge will be deciding which one – given the extensive choice.
