Situated in a peaceful location the Aloni Villas, named after the old threshing floor of stone incorporated in the private grounds, are two semi-detached villas completed to an exceptionally high standard. The Villas Ponente and Levante are surrounded by scented gardens. Roses, honeysuckle and jasmine climb and tumble over walls and pergolas. Bougainvillea, oleanders and many other flowering shrubs create a colourful display. There are orange, lemon, nespole, fig and olive trees. Set in the garden is a large swimming pool (11m x 5.5m with a constant depth of 1.35m) and an outside stylish kitchen with barbecue, fridge etc. and an adjacent dining area shaded by a pergola with a table that can seat 10. There are both sunny and shaded areas for relaxing with loungers, side tables, director's chairs and deck chairs. The villas are only 750 metres from the attractive harbour of Agia Efimia with its shops, bakery, bars, tavernas, post office and cash point.
This was our seventh stay at the Alonis and I can vouch for all that has been said in the other reviews and we would not have continued to return if we were not 100% satisfied.
The villa has been recently decorated inside and out and the finished standard is excellent. Mario, Maureen and Tracy bend over backwards to ensure that your stay is perfect and Kyriaki, the maid, ensures that the villa is cleaned and maintained to a very high standard. It is a hackneyed expression to say that it is a "Home form Home" but, in this case, it is perfectly true. If you are looking for a villa that provides everything, is close to a town with excellent restuarants and shops, as well as providing that solitude to relax, look no further.
Kefalonia and the Aloni Villas are at the top of our "To Do" list for 2014.
There are not enough words to express what a wonderful place this is. Everything has been thought about and upon our arrival it exceeded all our expectations. The owners really do go that 'extra mile' to welcome you and ensure your stay here is a memorable one and are on hand should you need help. There was a welcome pack with fresh bakery bread, jam, water, milk, wine and more. The cleanliness is second to none along with the attention to detail, there is everything you could possibly want from luxury towels and toiletries to torches. The views you wake up to each morning are just idyllic. A week is just not long enough to soak up all this villa has to offer. It leaves you thinking just how soon you can return! Agia Efimia is a pretty village with some lovely restaurants and cafe bars to visit. Everyone is so friendly and only to happy to help!
We have now stayed at the Ponente on 3 occasions and each visit has been better than the last - if that's at all possible. We can't recommend the Villa highly enough, from the fact that the Villa has everything you could possibly wish for, and more, to it's fantastic location (the village, harbour and restaurants a 10 minute walk - close enough but far enough away for peaceful nights) to the high standard of cleanliness, the lovely pool and its BBQ area, I could go on and on. Last, but certainly not least, for the wonderful welcome you receive from the owners, who are there on hand if you need them but never if you don't. I don't think you could wish for better hosts, always smiling, always helpful and amazingly generous. We will certainly keep going back, wild horses couldn't drag us away!
I can highly recommend this lovely villa for those of you staying in Kefalonia....I had my parents and children with me, and it was such a cozy place to spend our holidays....the house and gardens are immaculate, very clean, the owners have thought of all the details....including welcoming us with refrigerator full of snacks...yogurt, fruit, wine, juice...coffee....
Agia Efmia is the perfect location to stay, as it is close to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island.....and for eating in the evening, you are minutes away from the charming harbor of Ag. Efimia that has food for everyone's taste....
The evening was never complete without my kids taking a dip in the lovely swimming pool.....
You can't go wrong visiting Kefalonia.....and this villa will be the finishing touch for the perfect holidays.....
