Kefelonia. A small Greek Island one of the largest Ionian Islands in western Greece

We were planning to go to Scotland !!!!! For three months we planned the trip, taking in some of the islands and definitely going as high as John O’Groats. Suddenly the weather forecast turned and snow was forecast. Not our plans for our Summer holiday.


Over night Paul found a last minute deal to Kefelonia with Jet2.


We snapped it up. Self catering at Star Studio @ Trapezaki.


We left home on Wednesday 15th to drive to East Midlands Airport.

We had prebooked the car park in the long stay parking. On arrival it was registration recognition and we soon found a parking space. Only a 10 minute wait for the bus that dropped us off at ‘Departures’

The welcome at Jet2 booking in area was very friendly and smiley. Thankfully our cases were under the 22kg limit. We were given our boarding passes with out seat allocation which we had pre booked.


A very smooth ride and three and half hours later we were descending into Anna Pollatau airport, Kefelonia.

The Jet2 transfer to the accommodation was very smooth with helpful Staff along the way. Less than an hour and we arrived at our accommodation Star Studio.

The owner and her son were waiting for the bus and greeted us very pleasantly and led us to our apartment.

We were apartment number 1 on the ground floor. The apartment is very basic but very clean and well equipped.
