We had a blast few days on Kefalonia staying at property - apartment was big enough to fit extended family or two smaller ones with couple of kids! Property has much to offer - pool and bikes and location is great and picturesque, right on the sea shore. Our hosts, Marianna and Kostas arranged Taxi transfers and greeted us, they also gave us with their direct mobile numbers and helped us to organize our activities and answered other questions so we constantly felt like we were visting family! Tavern hundred meters away was great and not very populated with awesome choices of food for lunch or dinner so we ended up mostly eating where but you definitely can go to Sami for a stroll and shop/dine there as well. All in all it was a blast - the only regret is we did not arrange our stay to be longer than few days but we will definitely return!
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!
