My Answer: Kefalonia
Jazz FM has partnered with Simpson Travel to offer you and a guest the chance to win a 7-night holiday at The Blue Jasmine Hotel on the island of Kefalonia. You will be staying in the Ionian Sun Room and will receive a continental breakfast and a complimentary welcome pack, return flights (including taxes) from Gatwick to Kefalonia and even car hire.
The Blue Jasmine Hotel is a dream retreat for those seeking the antidote to the stresses of day-to-day life. Enjoy breakfast on the hotel’s terrace whilst surrounded by mesmerising sea views, spend your afternoons recharging your depleted batteries poolside and meet like-minded discerning travellers at the onsite bar. You can also take advantage of the Simpson Concierge service for that personal touch.
If you can tear yourself away from the hotel’s blissful bubble of tranquillity, a short drive away is Skala’s sandy beaches and waterfront tavernas. Whilst the picture-perfect harbour of Fiscardo is a couple of hours drive away, a beautiful location for a day trip.
Just under five minutes’ drive from the wide, sandy beaches of Skala, Blue Jasmine is a stylish, child-free oasis aimed unapologetically at those who prefer a calmer, more grown-up holiday experience. There’s a wonderful feeling of generosity, from the wide pool terrace to the extensive flower-filled gardens. It’s very much a family concern and is run with unfailing friendliness and professionalism that comes from years of experience.
In terms of location, Blue Jasmine is both secluded and convenient with a small sandy cove just a couple of minutes’ walk away. If you’re interested in the rich history of Kefalonia, there are remains from pre-historic, Roman and Venetian times to explore whilst walkers have plenty of varied routes to choose from. The entire island is accessible from here, including Fiscardo, Kefalonia’s most picture-perfect harbour in the north, and the enchanting village and fortress of Assos in the west, once the seat of the Venetian Governor of the island.
