Sleeps 8, luxury villa 500m from Kamania beach and its soft sand and warm water
About Tony Joannou
I live in England with my wife and 3 children. We are animal lovers and have had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, gerbils and fish. I run my own business which unfortunately means we can't escape to the sun as much as we would like!
Tony Joannou purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Tony Joannou chose Ratzakli
I chose this spot because of the location next to the most wonderful beach where I have been privileged to watch my children have fun each year as we visited the island. Being lucky enough to now own a property nearby, I'm happy to open up my home to those wanting to discover the same experiences.
What makes this Villa unique
I have tried to make this a home away from home. So whether you just fancy a day lazing round the pool, iced cold drinks are available from the American style fridge/freezer or are more adventurous and want to tour, the villa caters for all.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Villa was perfect for family
The whole bookings process was so amazingly easy, the villa is well kept and spacious, good facilities - the freezer dispensing ice and child water and aircon were especially lovely, with the heat. The pook is well loomed after and was well enjoyed. The Beach was much further away than expected and was down a steep windy road. We didnt hire a car but local taxi companies are excellent,
So glad you enjoyed your stay at our home in Kefalonia.
Yes it’s quite a steep hill down so not too bad going down but quite an effort getting back up again after a day on the beach. I normally recommend a car for the villa but as you say, taxis are very good and easily available.
We very much hope to welcome you back again soon.

April in Kefalonia is quiet but that suited us perfectly - as did this lovely villa. Skala & Katelios are just a short drive away and both had what we needed even out of season - admittedly for us that simply involved a supermarket in Skala & a restaurant in Katelios (Medusa, wonderful!). The villa's facilities include everything you need for a comfortable stay, the kitchen had everything required to cook for a family of six. The owners could not have been more helpful in assisting with our trip too. Bliss! Highly recommended!
Just to say thanks again Sarah and glad you enjoyed your stay
A quiet lication with everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay .
Home from home . Our family enjoyed their time here and everything needed was supplied .I would recommend it to others .
Thank you Kevin, your kind words are much appreciated.
I hope we do welcome you back soon.
Excellent location. Very clean. Well maintained.
Absolutely loved our stay. The villa had everything we could possibly need. Angela is available 24/7, even on a Saturday night when we managed to lock ourselves out! Good restaurants nearby. Excellent beach nearby. Thank you for letting us stay, we'd love to come back!

Perfect villa, perfect location.
Perfect warm welcome, greeted by food parcel so we didn't need to shoot off to a supermarket.
Large enough for a family of nine or groups of couples.
Villa is perfect, clean, fresh,cool with air con and all mod cons.
Location 5 minutes to skala, 10 to katelios, kaminia beach 2 minutes drive down a steep hill, but perfect sandy beach for small children.
We will book again.
Thank you Sam, its really nice to know that our home on Kefalonia lived up to your expectations.
We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Absolutely fantastic holiday
A big thank you for the loan of your home on Kefalonia, you were right, the island is very special and the people are very warm and welcoming.
We could not have chosen a better spot, the nearby beach is probably the best we have ever been to, shallow, sandy and wonderfully warm. It was safe for the kids to play and unlike most beaches, really quiet, very exclusive.
We found Skala a great place to head to most nights as it had plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Katelios is very Bohemian, a great place for sea food.
The villa was just in the right place to get the best of all the nearby features.Car hire is essential though as the local village only has the one restaurant although it does serve fantastic food.
Everything in the villa was as described, it all seems very new and was a great place to stay; love the electric shutters and gates, felt like we were 5 star guests.
Would definitely stay again and would like to thank Tony for giving our family a very special holiday that all of us enjoyed and will live in our memories for a long time.
That's really appreciated Joe.
I hope to welcome you back again in the future.
Tony & Mandy.
Just 500m from the beach considered the most family friendly on the island. Soft sand gently slopes into the clear ionian sea where our children have played safely in the warm water for many years.
Nearby is the family run beach cafe where drinks, ice cream and food can be purchased along with the all important toilet facilities.
Car hire is essential and can be pre booked from the UK. Recommended car hire companies are Hertz or the local firm CBR, both which have offices within or near to Argostoli airport. The villa is approximately 20km from the airport and main town.
Skala and Katelios are both approximately 2km either side of Ratzakli. The capital Arogostoli is approximately 20km from the villa, about 45 minutes drive.
The main supermarkets can be found on the Argostoli - Skala road, but local supermarkets in both Skala and Katelios have enough for most families.
