Why Invest in Kefalonia
Aptly named ‘The Jewel in the Ionian’, the island of Kefalonia has become an
extremely popular holiday destination. Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a
year, the Island enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with long warm summers
and mild winters.
The tourist industry in Kefalonia started developing in earnest during the 1980s
and visitor levels have continued to increase ever since. The Southern and
Western coasts of the island offer the most popular tourist resorts and
stretches from Skala on the southern coast to Lassi on the west coast.
With tourism increasing year on year, so does the demand for accommodation,
whether that is in the form of high class hotels, affordable self-catering
accommodation, or the increasingly popular private villa market. There is also a
higher demand now on flights into the Island, and with more countries offering
direct flights to Kefalonia in the summer, and scheduled internal flights
improving from Athens, with daily flights available all year round.
