Hi there

The season officially starts the first week of May although you might find that some larger hotels open up a bit earlier. The other thing is to determine is when direct flights to Kefalonia begin otherwise you'd have to go via Athens

Hi Anne and welcome,

We are flying to Kefalonia for Easter and expecting some tavernas to be open but possibly not all the tourist shops or excursions. We are going to Agia Efimia which is smaller than Fiscardo.

Hi Anne

We've never been as early as April (usually mid May) but friends went to Fiscardo for Easter last year and although there were enough places open to eat, some of their, and our favourites were not.

As stated Easyjet flights start at the beginning of April. Ionian Island holidays, the largest tour operator to Fiscardo starts it's programme on 26th of April so some places time their opening to coincide with that.

we rent our villa out with Villa plus and for the first time they have asked to market it from beginning of april.. now the easyjet flights are starting early you might find more places open. last easter there were more people around than usual for sure. we were on the first flight out from uk and it did seem mainly full of villa owners to be fair...im sure the tavernas will realise even if they offer a limited menu for a few weeks..

Easter is the biggest celebration of the year in Greece. My comments here are general for Greece as such.

In 2014 our Easter coincides with the Greek, which means that many travellers from abroad also will find their way to the islands. This is the time when the Greek people travel to their their families around the country (and especially on the islands), which means that there will be extra services available to cater for the big occation.

Usually tavernas in towns with a decent number of population will be packed. The most common tourist aimed resorts and places will still be closed, though.

It will be essential to prebook domestic ferries and flights.

Here is to give you an idea what the Greek celebration is like (this is from Naxos):

Most families celebrate at home on Easter Day, but there will be some tavernas open. Also look out for special Easter celebrations being staged by some hotels around to cater for the visitors.
