Beautiful villa and we had a fabulous time kefalonia is a gorgeous island and we enjoyed exploring and then relaxing but in luxury of our villa
Would highly recommend
Spacious and Comfortable Villa
This is a very attractive and comfortable villa which we really enjoyed. Its more spacious than the photos may indicate and everything is in excellent condition. There were four of us but I can imagine that a group of six could also be very comfortable in this lovely villa. The pool, patio and garden are particularly attractive as shown in the photos.
One thing we appreciated very much was the opportunity to walk into Sami where there is a wide range of seafront restaurants. Its a very pleasant 20-25 minute walk through the countryside and you can avoid any busy roads if you take the most direct route.
The owners are very friendly and welcoming, and I can very highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing holiday in beautiful Kefalonia.
We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in Kefalonia. The villa was beautiful, very clean and really well located. It was equipped with everything you'd need, even store cupboard items such as cling film and foil. The pool and BBQ area was excellent and allowed us to spend almost all of our time outside. The host was friendly and welcoming and on hand to answer any questions we had. All in all, this was probably the best family holiday we have been on.
A great quality property in a lovely location
Extremely clean, well maintained property which I would highly recommend.
Having stayed twice before in Kefalonia, this was our favourite part of the coastline and the best standard of apartment.
Within walking distance of Sami and Karavomylos. Ag. Efimia also very close by in the car.
The only negative point would be take some coat hangers - not enough in the wardrobes and it would be even better with a few more plates/cutlery and then the dishwasher wouldn't have to go on so frequently!
All in all though, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa, extremely clean, well thought out/designed, pool and outside excellent too.
Stathis Villa Karavalimnos
Beautiful villa really well equipped and in a great location. Danni and Satu were excellent hosts and very attentive.
Highly recommend this holiday.
5 Star property
We stayed in one of the 2 identical villas located across a private road from the owners, around a 2 min drive from Sami.
You could walk into town if you wanted. It would be around a 20-30 min walk and you would need a torch at night.
The villas are down an approx 300 mtr private road. It's a quiet location.
The villas are modern solid stone construction and of a very high quality.
The owners Danny & Satu are lovely people and could not help enough, any problem or question was dealt with quickly.
We have stayed at a lot of villas over the years and these are the cleanest we've stayed at. The mid stay cleans are more than what most do for a new stay!
The villa has lots of space and although it doesn't have some of the splendid views of some of the more mountainous villas, the olive grove setting was very nice.
After touring a lot of the island, we found Sami, although not the prettiest of resorts, was still nice at night when it becomes pedestrianised and as more of a "working" town, it has more of what villa owners want, as in really good butchers, bakers, etc.
Back to the villa.....Good sunbeds, aircon, bbq, nicely shaded eating areas. Beds were comfy. Some english channels, although if you have young children, bring dvd's. Excellent internet speeds which were good enough to facetime home.
The shaded garage for your hire car was something I never gave credit to on booking, but after getting in stupidly hot cars after day trips, its something I appreciated.
Small downsides, which is being picky: My wife said it needed a full length mirror.
The pool had too much chlorine, which is a transient issue, but was still at the end of the holiday, a bit too strong.
In total these are quality villas, with strong backup/care from the owners, which I would not hesitate to recommend.
Next beach is Agia Paraskevi (10 min drive): The largest beach among the idyllic bays between Agia Efimia and Sami. A pretty pebble cove with crystal clear waters ideal for snorkelling, a lawn for sunbathing, tavern and beach-bar.
The beach of Antisamos is 15 min drive from the villa: a spectacular beach surrounded by impressive verdant hills with turquoise-blue, crystal clear water ideal for snorkelling. Water sports on offer. 2 Café-bars.
The international airport of Argostoli is 35 km from the Villa (= 45 min drive) and the main port Poros (connecting Kefalonia with the mainland) approx. 30 km from the Villa. A car rental is essential.
A short 5 min drive will take you to the Natural Lake of Karavomylos: a dreamy place with a friendly tavern offering fresh local fish and fantastic views across the sea to the neighbouring Island of Ithaca.
Next bigger village is Sami (approx. 2 km from the villa): a little harbour, unspoilt and tranquil with an authentically Greek atmosphere. With several little taverns, cafés, shopping facilities, car rental Sami offers its guests everything they may need during the holidays.
The region around Sami has a breathtaking natural beauty and hides numerous worth seeing places, such as the Melissani Lake (= blue cave), the Natural Lake of Karavomylos, the Drogaratti Cave, the monastery of Agrilion or Grilia, the Ancient Acropolis of Sami and the monastery of Fanendes.
There are a lot of pathways ideal for hiking and exploring with superb views over the Ionian See and the neighbouring islands of Ithaca and Lefkada.
