La Villa perfetta

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati ospiti di Villa Elena in due famiglie composta in totale da 4 adulti e due bambini di 10 e 11 anni. Non posso che confermare e anzi rimarcare quanto scritto da altri ospiti. La Villa si presenta dotata di ogni accessorio e molto curata in ogni particolare. La cura e attenzione di Eleanor si nota. La bellezza della Villa la si può notare dalle foto che comunque non rendono quanto dal vivo. Quello che è da sottolineare è la assoluta pulizia interna ed esterna con un servizio quotidiano per la piscina e ogni tre giorni per le parti interne compreso cambio asciugamani e lenzuola. La posizione della Villa è ottima. Vicina all'aeroporto ma senza fastidio dovuto al rumore di aerei che non si sentono e soprattutto posizione che ti consente di visitare l'isola con una certa facilità. E' difficile descrivere tutto in poche righe ma credo sia sufficiente e abbastanza esplicativo il titolo di questa recensione. Grazie Eleanor

Beautiful villa with lovely pool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super stay at the villa - beautifully decorated with everything you need. The outdoor space was fantastic with various seating areas, sun loungers and a brilliant pool.

The pool was cleaned daily and the villa was cleaned half way through our one week stay with all towels and bed linen changed - the latter especially very impressive and not something we've experienced at other villa stays.

We were presented with an excellent welcome pack of food and drinks too.

The villa is only a 10 min drive from the beach and Argostoli - an ideal location.

Eleanor, the villa owner, was very hospitable and welcoming - thank you for everything.

We would highly recommend this villa for a holiday stay! Superb place!!

Eutopia in Kefallonia

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our stay at Villa Elena!

Eleanor's hospitality and extra touches made it extra-special for her guests ... the beautiful architecture and decor of the villa ... a wonderfully serene environment (a lovely pool with the sound of cicadas serenading us in the background) ... EVERY element made our stay beyond special! We will definitely be returning to Villa Elena whenever we visit Kefallonia.
