Forget me Not Villa 2 exceeded my expectations. I've stayed at several VBRO properties and this rental did not disappoint. It is clean, spacious and had all the things one might need for cooking, making tea etc., not to mention that it is beautifully decorated, has ample parking, a covered porch area, a balcony overlooking the property with a view of the sea. The pool area has umbrellas and lounge chairs which we used every day.
Our flight was in the evening and when we arrived in Kefalonia, it was quite dark. I was pleasantly surprised at how close the villa was to the airport. The roads in Kefalonia are not well lit, and there are many sharp curves and steep mountain roads which I am not accustomed to driving. Thankfully I did not have to drive far on my first night.
I want to make sure I mention that while staying at the villa, I hardly noticed any noise or interruptions from the airport. It is a peaceful and lovely setting.
You definitely need a car to explore this island properly. Forget me Not is a short distance from everything you might want to see. We went into Lassi for dinner a few nights and in Argostoli as well. Both are a quick and easy drive. My favorite local beach was Costa Costa and our favorite restaurant was the owners restaurant, Kyani Akti in Argostoli. Its right on the water and has a laid back, casual elegance about it. Dinner was amazing and desserts were out of this world! We loved it so much that we ate there twice.
Thank you Joanne and family for making our trip to Kefalonia a fabulous experience., I have a feeling we will be back soon!
Our stay was more than 5 stars. The villa is beautiful, well equipped with a gorgeous view and pool. Paraskevas, the owner, makes it even better. His attention to detail, his warmth, kindness and generosity really makes you feel welcome.
We had a wonderful 10 day stay and did not want to leave. We highly recommend this villa for anyone visiting Kefalonia.
