I am getting in a state over whether to go to Cephalonia (same place as last year, near Fiscardo) or Lefkas. Help me decide!

Kefalonia! Lefkas is very hot and not as pretty IMHO.

Kephalonia. So beautiful. We need to go back there. I love it.

Good response. Thank you! The villa we found in Lefkas is beautiful, but the Kefalonia one faces west so we get the sunset, which is always a bonus. Thanks for help with the decision.

Kefalonia, definitely! Love it there.

Lefkada is lovely! We stayed near Tsoukalades.

Am planning a trip with DD20 when she finishes studying in July - we usually go to a beautiful place in Turkey called Kalkan, but fancied a change for our girly-trip. Not too lively/good beach/few shops/nice place to stroll and eat in the evenings. Would Kefalonia fit the bill?

We also know Kalkan. Kefalonia would fit the bill, particularly Fiscardo. Beaches are not particularly sandy in the north, but very pretty. It would be a good base for a trip.

We stay in Scala, Kefalonia.

If you fancy a boat trip, go to Ithaca. Lovely little artisan shops and nice restaurants. An organised trip will take you to both of the main towns and a couple of swim stops usually.

I've been to both, very similar IMO.

Thank you for the input. Has anyone taken the boat from Fiscardo to Vassiliki- thinking another day out.

Kefalonia now booked, so the pressure is over. We have stayed in Scala before, and near Assos more recently. It's all very lovely and low-key. I would like to visit Lefkas though; we stayed there once before, 30 years ago.
