The Mandolin Slept Here

May 27, 2012


Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, that is.  The novel about an Italian soldier in World War II was set on the island of Cephalonia.  I know that book was fiction, but I’ve always remembered the romantic descriptions of the island where it was set, so I was so happy to discover that there’s a beautiful hotel there which can serve as a base for exploring the white sand beaches, hidden coves and blue-water caves. Here is where you can sleep on this enchanting island in Western Greece, where renting a scooter for rides to pristine quiet beaches is highly recommended. Emilisse Hotel.
