The island of Kefalonia made up a major part of the Grecian tourism. Located on the western border of the Greek waters, the island, as well as the largest among the group, called the Ionian Islands, with an estimated area of 350 sq. miles. Kefalonia is generally known for its mountainous landscape, sea resorts, ancient monasteries and a thriving countryside, thereby making it the most sought-after destination for the holidaymakers and real estate buyers. The market for Kefalonia property increased at the same healthy rate by which it increases elsewhere in the other Greek towns, in the current years.
However, one should respect the fact that holidaying and living in Kefalonia is hard, noting the frequent earthquakes that keep on taking place there, it is also a no secret that living there was no more harmful as compared to what it may be in Tokyo or Loss Angeles. And this is why thousands select each year, to have a taste of its beaches, sea resorts, cafes and the city life. Because most of the island's population lives in two main towns, the bulk of Kefalonia property may also be bought and sold there. These are Argostoli and Lixouri, including of the two-thirds of the whole of 45K strong island's populace.
Argostoli, the capital and the largest of all towns in the island, is the area where most tourists can be seen visiting. The major center of the town, carrying eating place and cafes, can be seen busy with activity the whole day, however, the evenings show out lavish and inviting too. Much of Kefalonia property in Argostoli can be found situated along the city center, where the highest amount of tourism happened. The two major remarkable aspects about Argostoli are; the popular Lassi seashore is known for its beauty, and the cryptic 'Swallow Holes' in the Vlikha region, which pinpoint a unique geological activity. The 'Swallow Holes cause a disappearance and then reappearance of the seawater over a two-week long period along the rocky shoreline.
Kefalonia is the place as well where the archaeologists just succeeded in digging up a Roman-era graveyard. The archaeologists dug out closely 2000 years old five grave sites, which had stone coffins, bronze coins, and gold ornaments apart from numerous other artifacts, to be spoken revealed. To crown it all, the coffin stones opened up without issue, hence displaying the ancient Greek craftsmanship. It was immediately branded by the archaeologists as the most significant findings that were made in the history of the Ionian Islands ever. They found a highly preserved theater next to the grave sites also, which carried some intact metal parts of the seating area even after the passage of so much time.
With the Greek real estate experiencing an upsurge in the post - 2004 Olympic Games phase, the market for Kefalonia real estate has also been rising up due to the striking tourism points we mentioned above. As a result, there is a high rush for buying holiday homes and private apartments in Kefalonia today and the bulk of these clients are coming out from the non-Greek territories like the UK and Germany, two of the world's most travel-friendly nations.
