What a fantastic place for a family Holiday
Great Villa, great views, Fantastic people
Lovely return to Lourdas
Second stay at Villa Magdalani, still beautifully kept and looks new. Everything you could need from great bbq and wonderfully equipped kitchen. Secluded spot with awesome views of the sea and the mountains. Table tennis was great in the high heat as covered. Will be back!
A really first class villa that has everything you could need for a great holiday. Less than 30 mins drive from the airport and spotlessly clean with a generous welcome pack.
Loads of excellent bars and restaurants within walking distance and Lourdas beach is great. A car is recommended to cope with the hills in the heat plus to get around the beautiful island.
Owners a pleasure to deal with and have loads of helpful information and tips.
If you are looking for a brilliant villa to enjoy a great holiday you have found it.
Beautiful Villa with a Great View
Lovely villa in a quiet but not isolated position and the view was far better than expected. The villa was very well equipped with more than enough tableware and cooking equipment and everything clean and modern. Villa Magdalani has a beautifully maintained garden that surrounds all sides meaning there is always somewhere to sit in sun or shade. There was a variety of different seating and loungers and the table tennis table is fun to use. Lourdas is a reasonably short walk but quite a steep walk up from the beach, which I imagine would be a struggle for some, particularly in the main summer months. Lots of nice restaurants and small supermarkets within a short drive and some walkable distance. Parking was easy at the beach when we were there in June but don't know what it would be like in high season. After being a little bit apprehensive about booking direct with the owners, I needn't have worried. Jo and Darren made the whole process straightforward and I would thoroughly recommend Villa Magdalani. I would have no hesitation in returning to this property if visiting Kefalonia in the future. Thank you.
Well presented property with amazing sea views.
Great villa with amazing views, short walk to local tavernas. Good sized pool and patio, the table tennis table was a real hit with our children ! Much nicer to stay in a family owned property as it always feels more homely. Would love to visit again had a brilliant family holiday.
Really lovely villa
The villa, it's setting and views, the pool and outside areas are first class. It is also extremely well equipped, clean, bright and the table tennis table is a bonus. Watching the sunset from the balconies is something not to be missed.
There are lots of taverns within walking distance and the mini markets and bakers have everything you might need if you're bar b Q ing or eating in.
A car is useful not just for getting shopping up the hill but to explore this lovely island, but as long as your relatively fit it's not essential.
The neighbours are also very nice, but not at all intrusive and have helpful suggestions about places to visit and how to get there. They also gave us a jar of homemade apricot jam!
The owners are very quick to respond and helpful.
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough.
Famous Lourdas beach is one of the largest bays on the island and is fringed by over 2 miles of sand and pebble beach and 500m down hill. Trapezaki beach with its sandy coves is 1km away and can be easily reached by car in 3 minutes. The village faces south so gets all day sun!
The airport is 20 minutes drive away but no aircraft noise is heard from the villa. Car hire is recommended to see this beautiful island but not essential.
Argostoli, capital is 10km, St George's castle is 7km towards the town. Sami where captain Corelli's mandolin was filmed is 25km also Drongarati Cave, and Melissani Cave Lake. The Cephalonian Robola wine visitors centre is at Valsamata 20 minutes away. North of the island is Fiscardo with its fine yachts and very Greek village of Assos, all within a days trip.
A ferry can be taken from Sami over to the Island of Ithaca for the day.
There are several local shops/supermarkets in the village. There is information in the villa on tavernas/restaurants and places of interest in the area and on the island. The village has 2 internet cafes and banks are located in the main town of Argostoli.
