Villa holiday at The Walnut Tree – fly from Birmingham with

Planning a self-catering holiday at THE WALNUT TREE villa in Kefalonia?  To fly from Birmingham Airport check out the Jet2 website!

May and September are just the months to visit The Walnut Tree villa near Sami, Kefalonia – good for walking through the National Parks, viewing the spring/autumn flowers and perfect temperatures to enjoy these wild unspoilt spaces.

So it is GOOD NEWS that the budget airline Jet2 have just announced 2019 regular flights from Birmingham to KEFALONIA on Tuesdays.  This new service starts in May and continues until the end of September.  You can already book these flights online through the website.  Depending on when you want to fly, the prices of one way flights are from under £62 to around £242.

UK Airports flying direct to Kefalonia: Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle … the list grows every year so worth checking.


At The Walnut Tree villa, a fortnight in June and another in August have already been booked for 2019.  If you are thinking of visiting Kefalonia and taking a self-catering holiday at the villa next year, these flights are definitely worth considering!


During the last ten years, the number of direct flights coming into Kefalonia Airport (EFL) has greatly increased.  This has made travellers’ choices much more flexible.  Since the ownership of the Airport changed hands, the airport has undergone some changes with more improvements in the pipeline.  To make more room in the airport building, some car hire businesses have moved out of the airport building into new premises just outside the airport perimeter.  Promises have been made that disruption will be kept to a minimum and we certainly hope that this is the case.
