Our little piece of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

What can we say, that we haven't already said. Villa is stunning, we had a superb time in Villa Argante, Lakithra. A few new additions to the villa, were appreciated.

I hope it won't be too long before we can come back.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are two mature couples who were making our first visit to Kefalonia and could not have found a better place to stay. The descriptions of Villa Argante are completely accurate and, if anything, the photographs do not do it justice. The interior is beautifully decorated and very well appointed with everything you could possible need to for a comfortable stay. We particularly appreciated the range of kitchen basics (coffee, tea, oil, seasonings etc) which are so rarely found in rental homes. All the appliances are in good working order.The outside gardens are pretty and very well-maintained and the large pool is beautiful. The villa is not overlooked at all.

The location suited us very well, there are great views out to the sea and mountains, especially from the lovely upstairs balcony, and it is convenient to go out into the large village to try out the restaurants and meet the local people, all of whom we found to be extremely welcoming. The nearby mini-market is amazingly well stocked. We also found it a good base for exploring the island; the sign posting can be rather 'challenging' but being near the capital means you can usually find the right direction to get home!

The property is looked after by Isabel who is charming and very helpful.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Argante to anyone planning to visit this beautiful island.

Top tip for anyone interested in wine is to have tastings of the super Kefalonia wines - what a revelation! Our favourite tasting was at Gentilini winery, followed by the Robola Co-operative.

Just Perfect !!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a really wonderful holiday at Villa Argante. It was the first time we'd ever had a villa and it was just perfect for us ( family of 6 ). The house is really spacious and has everything you need and more. The pool and surrounding views are beautiful. The location is perfect as you are near the airport and Argostoli also the village has a bakery, small shop and restaurants. The local 'pâtisserie ' sells delicious cakes and a favourite restaurant of ours was ' Ampelaki ' in Argostoli. We definitely hope to book again!

Secluded, exclusive villa in scenic, quiet village location, perfect for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in an ideal location on the island as the village of Lakithra has everything you may need if you want to eat locally, including a choice of 4 restaurants, a bar, bakery, confectioners and mini mart. It is located only 10 mins from the airport yet no noise or disruption due to the angle of the runway. Argostoli is only 10 mins drive and there are stunning beaches within easy reach.

The quiet track that leads to the villa offers total privacy and seclusion and the garden is. well established and maintained. Stunning views from the upper balcony of sunrise and sunset across Argostoli.

The layout of the villa is conducive to family living and most of our time was naturally spent outside under the large shady patio area, the cute pergola and pool side.

The kitchen is very well equipped and the decor and furnishings stylish and well maintained. The 3 bathrooms with great showers were ideal when everyone wants to get ready at the same time!

Isobel who cleaned the villa twice a week was a fountain of knowledge and it's always reassuring to have a contact should an emergency occur. The villa is spotlessly clean and the extra touches like the welcome pack, and basics provided is very much appreciated.

The ultimate compliment is a rebooking as our 2 weeks holiday are precious to a busy working family and I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be next summer!

Since thanks from the Hodson's.

A wonderful holiday at a wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was delightful, very clean and well equipped. The pool is larger than ones we've had at other villas and it was very well maintained too, as was the very pretty garden surrounding it. The villa is not overlooked and the views from the balcony across to Argostoli harbour are wonderful. David & Elaine's recommendation to hire a car from Akis at Autochoice Car Rental was very useful as Akis met us at the airport and then we were able to follow him for the short drive to the villa. Even though you can get to the villa very quickly from the airport there is no aircraft noise at all. There's a mini-market, a bakery, a wonderful cake shop, a bar and several restaurants all within walking distance. We tried all the restaurants in Lakithra village and didn't have a bad meal in any of them. There's also a Lidl and a Carrefour supermarket a short drive away. Kefalonia is a beautiful island and there's plenty to do. We saw turtles in the harbour at Argostoli thanks to the tip from Isobel (lady who keeps the villa so lovely and clean) and we visited St. George's castle, which has a very nice restaurant just by the gate. There are nice sandy beaches nearby too, if you can drag yourself away from the pool! With two teenagers, having the wifi and Sky was a real plus point. The only problem (for them) was that they used up the 3G daily wifi allowance on most days. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa to our family and friends, and in fact have already done so!

Excellent - very well equipped and presented

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Argante. The villa was very clean and extremely well equipped . Isobel was charming and most helpful and we very much appreciated the welcome pack.

The pool and surrounding areas were beautifully kept and we enjoyed the pool very much.

It was great to have so many good little restaurants locally and loved the fresh bread from the bakery in the morning .

All in all the villa certainly lived up to and in fact exceeded our expectations - hope very much to return and would certainly recommend it.
