Saturday 21 August 2010

Ionian & Aegean Island Holidays
£1,182: Alexanna Apartments, Kefalonia
Includes flights departing Gatwick or Manchester on 11 September, a week's car hire and self-catering accommodation at the Alexanna Apartments, just outside Fiskardo, plus a welcome hamper. "These are perfectly located apartments offering exquisite views on one side of the dense pine forest and on the other sensational sea views towards Ithaka. They're in a peaceful setting and are a great base for exploring the island. The famous Mytros Beach is only a 20-minute drive away, but this is also a perfect holiday for those who like more activity than just relaxing on a beach," says Bernadette Askouni at Ionian & Aegean Island Holidays (020-8459 0777; ionianislandholidays.com).
