The villa was exactly as described.It was very clean, well maintained and comfortable. The booking process was easy and straight forward and the owners were helpful and willing to accomodate requests. We particularly liked the table tennis table and the pool. The owners provided a lot of equipment. games and books. The location of the villa was stunning. We would recommend this villa for a comfortable, private and relaxing holiday.

Kefalonia was also stunning and the local beach was only a 10 minute walk away.

superb villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa was beautifully presented and cleaned to a high standard. The villa location was lovely and quiet, but not too far from local beach with two taverna (realistically a 5 minute drive and we didn't encounter any other cars on the way there or back). Secluded and extremely private area, with no other villas next door or overlooking! The kitchen was well equipped; bathrooms were very clean; pool was comfortably warm in August but still refreshing! We spent many evenings, following either a trip to the tavernas or preparing a bbq in the villa, playing badminton, table tennis, cards or scrabble. Sea and mountain/country views were superb. There is a bumpy dirt road for the last 1/2 mile to reach the villa, that has no traffic usage or noise. Owners were really attentive to our holiday needs, nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely recommend this villa to friends, etc. Would also like to return again, if possible, next year! We were a party of four adults (in our 40's) with two teenagers(15 and 17). We all agreed we had relaxed and enjoyed our week's stay here and would book 10 days or 2 weeks next time!

Outstanding holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous villa is situated in a stunning location, offering superior facilities to suit families and couples alike. The villa is within walking distance of beautiful Avithos beach with its clear inviting waters and two excellent beach restaurants. There are various local restaurants, also within walking distance or a short car ride away, which offer quality food at reasonable prices. You can hire a car to explore the island or visit the nearby town, sit in the square and enjoy a cocktail and snack whilst watching the world go by. We had a truly wonderful and relaxing holiday staying at this luxurious and delightful villa and I would definitely recommend this to friends and family,
