The villa is a short drive away from the airport and like the other reviews have mentioned already, although the planes can be heard they cause no inconvenience at all. With the airport being nearby it is a blessing in disguise when getting used to driving on the other side of the car / road. The reviews below describe the layout and the pictures speak for themselves so I won’t repeat what has already been said - apart from it being superb! When we were looking into where to stay we wanted a traditional Greek villa away from the tourist traps and this dwelling ticked all the boxes and then some. When we arrived at the villa we were met by the lovely owners, Panagis and Tassia, who were more than hospitable. They stay at their own villa next door (30 yards away) at the weekends so it was handy to fly in on the Sunday as we managed to ask them where to eat / drink without the area being too ‘touristy’. Prior to leaving the UK, through Angela we hired our very own chef (Viva) who prepared an outstanding 3 course meal for us, along with her signature dish, on the Monday night as it was our wedding anniversary. It cost £30pp for the three traditional home cooked courses which was a bargain as we ate the leftovers the following evening!! Highly recommend Viva should you wish to dine in and have dinner on the balcony while the sun sets. She also does all the dishes / tidying up so there’s nothing for you to do. There’s so much to say about the island but in summary; hire a car and get out and about as there is so much stunning scenery to take in, visit the fantastic nearby Gentilini vineyard and buy a bottle (or two), Lassi / Sami very tourist orientated but good for souvenirs, and book Viva to cook for you!! We visited late September for a week (wished we stayed for longer) and there were clear skies, mid to high 20’s, their autumn apparently! The villa is amazing, I assure you you won’t be disappointed if you book here. We will definitely be visiting the villa again, hopefully next year. Thanks again to Panagis and Tassia who truly made our holiday one to remember. We'll see you in Edinburgh!

Manager response: Thank you for the lovely review and we are so pleased that you had a great time not only at the villa but on our beautiful island of Kefalonia. Panagis and Tassia are so proud of their villa, and with good reason to be. They have put a lot of thought and effort into both the interior and exterior and this is obvious as you take in your surroundings. We wish you both a happy winter and we really hope to see you again next year. Angela Hitchen Property Manager.
Utterly amazing villa. Designed and built by an architect for his own family, it fantastically furnished and supremely comfortable. The outdoor pool area is amazing. the underground taverna stunning. The owner popped by to welcome us and encouraged us to help ourselves to his wine Cellar. Pity non of us are drinkers. At the end of the garden is a rocky shoreline ... Great if you are strong swimmer and beach-combing, but not suitable for children .... But then they will be just totally enamoured by the swimming pool area. Very close to the Airport, there is no denying ... But flights were very infrequent even in late July ... And are actually interesting to watch !! You will need a car as the villa is isolated. Small local market walkable, but pricey. Big supermarkets for big weekly shops are about 20 minutes away. Amazing sea views and of the sunsets. Would love to visit this villa again.

Vinaria Litoa is a stunning accommodation. My wife and I have just returned from a weeks stay during which we were privileged enough to be allowed to hold our wedding reception within the grounds of the villa. The photographs on the site genuinely do not do the accommodation justice. The views from the villa are incredible and as the location is away from any notable sources of light, the night sky reveals not only an infinite number of stars but also a clear view of the milky-way as you look out over the ocean! We cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Vinaria Litoa, nor could we recommend it more. The villa is homely, yet extravagant, without being pretentious. The owners of the villa, who reside next door, could not have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful. Ange who manages the villa and who is your main contact during your stay is lovely and on hand to assist with any queries or issues you might have (of which we had none). Although the villa is close to the airport (very close) we can assure you that noise is not an issue. There are no night flights in Kefalonia and so there is no disturbance of sleep; the aeroplanes actually make for interesting entertainment on the odd occasion you are aware of them landing. The villa boasts a beautiful swimming pool as well as quaint vineyards. The lower floor cellar/kitchen is a lovely addition to the villa that means you can pop inside easily from the pool to fill up your glass and the room itself is filled with beautiful, little ornamental treasures which further add to the luxurious feel of your home-from-home. Our wedding guests were all in awe of the location of our reception and a number have expressed interest in booking the villa themselves next time they travel to Kefalonia. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and villa Vinaria Litoa was a big part of making that day so special. Book your holiday here and we guarantee that you won't be disappointed! - Alex and Rosanna xx

Manager response: Hi Alex and Rosanna, thank you for this great review and I'm so pleased that Villa Vinaria Litoa helped to make your wedding day so special and the villa is now part of your happy wedding day memories. I wish you both a wonderful future together. Ange Hitchen Property manager.
I think this is the best accommodation since I spend my holidays in Greece. Everything was great, starting with the swimming pool, the semi-underground cellar, the kitchen, the bedrooms and the location( even a car is required). Angela was very helpful and for Panagis and Tassia, all the best. You don’t see so much hospitality as Panagis and Tassia (and Lari, their dog) showed to us. The villa has a very good functionality, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms (one with only shower), 2 sofa ( one in the living room and one in the cellar), 2 refrigerators . Also , one the cellar it was an pizza oven and the barbeque). In the living room they have wi-fi connection who worked very fast. With the care you can explore all the island, and I will recommend to you :Sami, Skala, Argostoli, Assos. The most beautiful beach for us it was Markros Gialos, located in Lassi , few km from the villa.. Panagis recommended to us a very good store in Argostoli where you can buy all that you need for eat and drink: Stamouli. I would strongly recommend the villa for all the people who want to spend a great holiday in Kefalonia. For the families with children ( like us) it iwas the ideal location.

Manager response: Thanks Cristian for the great review, 2012 is the first year of operating for Villa Vinaria Litoa. We wanted to offer a luxury villa in a great location with all the facilities and amenities you would need for a great holiday and I think we have managed to achieve that. We also wanted to be able to give people peace of mind when they are travelling independently, which is why I call at the villa when guests arrive to offer tips and advice on where to go and how best to discover the island, and of course Panagis and Tassia the owners, are close by to offer their hospitality. Once again thanks for your kind words and we hope to see you back at Villa Vinaria Litoa very soon. Angela Hitchen. Property Manager.

This is a large, lovely villa designed by its owner Panagis (who is a structural engineer) for his daughter. The villa consists of 3 floors, the lower level has a dining area that is virtually an undercroft and therefore remains cool on the hottest days. Bedrooms and living room all have sea views. There is access to the sea shore from the bottom of the garden and, if it is calm (and you are a confident swimmer) you can swim off the rocks. Ammes Beach is walkable, but we preferred Minies Beach, a short drive to the North. At the time we visited there were Loggerhead Turtles on Ammes. It must be said that the airport runway is close to the villa, with a certain amount of noise inevitably resulting. However, I can honestly that at no time was the noise intrusive whilst we were staying. There are some steep turning stairs so I would not recommend the villa for the elderly, infirm or families with toddlers. All in all Villa Vinaria Litoa is a beautiful, well designed holiday villa and is ideal for families with slightly older children. The views from the villa are excellent (sunsets are superb) and we loved our stay. Thanks Panagis and Tassia.

Manager response: Thanks Ralph for the great review, it was good to meet you and as you were our very first guest here it was good to see you enjoying all that Villa Vinaria Litoa has to offer and we hope to see you back again some time soon. Thanks again, Angela, property manager.
Our holiday in Cefalonia will never be forgotten, for we spent an amazing fortnight, due to the beauties of the island and the kindness and generosity of the owners of the villa. It is a quite beautiful villa in which you can get a lot of privacy and silence without giving up the facilities of the nearby crowded cities and beaches. The outdoor spaces are beautifully thought and leave you free to enjoy relax, chatting, playing and eating under a stunning pergola. Indoors you can find everything you might need, and if not so, Panagis and Anastasia are ready to help, at anytime. The descriptions provided are very close to reality; our family was composed of members of different age and needs, and none of us were disappointed. The bedrooms are upstairs so very quiet even during the day. Both of the bedrooms a common terrace with a stunning view of the sea beneath. The place is amazingly quiet, and the airplanes are no disturb at all; seeing them land became a pleasant attraction. We decided to call this review "home away" because that's exactly how we felt during our holiday.We found friends instead of owners, and an amazing land, only waiting to be discoverd. Thank you Panagis, Tassia, Ari and Angela. We really enjoyed staying at Villa Vinaria Litoa.
