About Sharon Williams
We come from Wales in UK a region famed for its lush countryside and mountains. We chose the site for Villa Diana because it has the same Idyllic countryside setting but without the RAIN.
Sharon Williams purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Sharon Williams chose Livathou
We bought the land because we fell in love with its idyllic countryside location. It is surrounded by fruit groves and lush greenery with fabulous views towards Mount Aenos. It is ideally placed on the Island to be able to access the many beautiful beaches and attractions Kefalonia has to offer. As we intend spending time there all year round, the land we built Villa Diana on is on the outskirts of the villages of Keramies and Spartia which is a residential area of predominantly Greek people, unlike some of the tourist villages such as Skala and Lourdas which become very quiet in the Winter months.
What makes this Villa unique
This Villa was designed and built by one of the best building firms on the Island whose attention to detail has created our dream holiday home. We wanted to share our holidays with family but have our own space, those little darlings can be a bit overwhelming sometimes! In Villa Diana we can shut our door and have complete privacy whilst upstairs our extended family can do the same which makes times when we choose to all be together a pleasure!

Ideal for large families
Perfect stay at Villa Diana. Communication excellent throughout process and in country support brilliant. Villa layout perfect for 12 of us with enough space to do your own thing. Pool was clean and maintained through the holiday. Walk to local tavernas a little more than expected but 15min up the hill to a lovely taverna, snack bar, cafe and shop was all we needed. Local beach beautiful and great base/location to explore the island. Thank you Sharon and Emma :)
Really warm welcome, even though arrived early. Lovely house & setting, just as described, with everything we could need at hand. Would definitely recommend the place :)
Beautiful villa, well equipped, lovely pool, quiet rural setting.
My family and I have just returned from a fabulous week in Kefalonia staying at Villa Diana. The villa was perfect for our family of 9 including an 18 month old toddler.
The villa is in a very quiet rural area only about 10 minutes from Argostoli. We all had cars which are very necessary to get around and see the island. You really need to visit the town of Fiskardo which is at the far end of the island and beautiful! and also Assos, a climb up to the castle gives you some wonderful views. The castle ruins in Argostoli have a delightful little taverna called To Kastro, it’s covered in flowers and is on the road on the way up.
Back to the villa, the pool is great and a very good size. The property has everything you need in it as you would have at home. Joy is the lady that manages the property, she is very helpful and was at the property when we arrived, during the week and when we left. There are a couple of good supermarkets nearby and a couple of restaurants. One restaurant in particular The Olive Grove was a favourite serving delicious Greek food and amazing desserts, and it is just around the corner from the villa.
We all watched the first England game in the World Cup on the TV in the villa, it was interesting with a commentary in Greek, very little excitement from the commentator unlike in England.
All in all we all had a wonderful holiday and were sad to leave.
We loved it
Villa Diana was all we’d hoped for!
A family holiday with 8 adults, two children and a toddler the Villa was clean, well resourced and with a fantastic pool. The beautiful grounds and location made it an ideal place to enjoy Kefelonia again. Thanks to Joy for all her help during our stay,
We had an amazing time with great memories.
Villa Diana - perfect location, gorgeous and tranquil
First impressions are important, as you arrive to Villa Diana with elegant gates, driveway and spacious gardens, an illuminated house and pool which like a beacon glows in the valley, it wasn't difficult to find. Arriving as we did late evening, how welcoming to find in one of the dual kitchens, the fridge and cupboards stocked with all the basic essentials including fresh milk, eggs, butter, bread etc to get our holiday started. It's the attention to details that add up to make your stay relaxing and stress free, including regular house keeping.
One of the things I always appreciate is quality Wi-Fi bandwidth, for keeping connected with work (sad as that sounds). I was pleasantly surprised to find unlike so many other Villas, (especially in the countryside) that Villa Diana boasts strong Wi-Fi, we were getting a solid 6Mpbs, which is sufficient for the basics and streaming and to keen our teens happy with their social media accounts.
We didn’t really fully utilise Villa Diana’s full capabilities as half our 6 kids are away, even so, the bedrooms, furnishings and facilities, you’d want for nothing. The large pool, glows enticingly evening at night with the pool and patio lights, sun loungers make for some very relaxing days. We particularly liked the balcony and the covered shade beside the pool for eating al fresco.
With my wife being Greek Cypriot, we always measure up every other Greek Island and Kefalonia is beautifully stunning, was our first visit to the island. It’s people are friendly and very hospitable, with a mediterranean cuisine which is always a delight, no wonder life expectancy is so high in these cultures.
Sharon and her team are wonderful hosts, with great advice and suggestions, nothing was too much, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Diana and will be recommending to our friends with the hope we might return in the not too distant future also.
Thankyou very much John for your wonderful, informative review and for taking such good care of our Villa Diana.
We would love to welcome you and you family to stay again!
great house with loads of space, large pool, lovely views of the mountain and nice tracks for walking.
easy access to shops, beaches and coves.
Drogati Caves-Fabulous cave system, once used by Maria Callas for a concert. A palace of stalactites and stalagmites.
Melessani Lake -Be rowed around the underground lake in awe of your surroundings, and hear the fascinating story of how the water comes to be there.
Saint Gerasimos Monastery -Home to the remains of Saint Gerasimos, patron saint of Kefalonia. In the garden is the large plane tree that was planted by St Gerasimos in the 16th century. With church interior that is quite amazing. It is a working monastery, so all the usual rules about dressing modestly apply.
Myrtos Beach-One of the most stunning views of Kefalonia. Argostoli-The islands capital, the place for you if enjoy great outdoor cafe society. Many shops, restaurants and tavernas. Fiskardo/Assos- Picturesque harbour villages. Mount Aenos national park with its eagles soaring overhead.
Other Activities: JETSKI, BOWLING, WATER PARK.
