It is late September and I am onboard one of our last flights to Kefalonia of the season. It is 26ºC, unusually warm for this time of year, the sun is shining brightly and there is a fragrance of the harvest on the sea air. Every destination in the world has a unique aroma and Kefalonia's is an overriding one of nature.
A quick trip across the tarmac, through passport control, bags collected, and it's time to meet the local representative, Amy. On Kefalonia, Amy is one of four representatives on the island; Anna-Maria and Maria cover the north, Amy the south and Cheryl is based in the capital, Argostoli, and helps to plan our guest services and efficient transfer programme.
Our destination for the night is Lourdas, or Lordata as it's also known, on the south coast, a short air-conditioned minibus journey from the airport.
I was immediately taken by the tranquility of the area. Lourdas has retained its traditional look and feel whilst still catering for guests with its tavernas and bars - you could say that it is a quintessential Sunvil destination.
