Great villa, made for a relaxing holiday
A lovely place to have as a base for exploring Kefalonia. The villas are clean, well-equipped, and well-located. The views from the balconies/terraces and around the swimming pool and barbeque area are gorgeous: lush valley stretching away to one side, with the sound of sheep bells tinkling, steeps hills on either side, and then down to the sea to the other. The villas are a short (10 minute) walk into the small town of Agia Efimia, which has shops and tavernas, although nothing flashy. Easy to explore the rest of the island with a car. The pool is clean and well maintained, with masses of space. The service when we arrived was wonderful: a welcome pack to get us started, including local honey and bread, friendly help and advice on where to go and when, and towels changed every few days. Everything is there in the villa, including toiletries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others.
The villa was absolutely lovely, beautiful inside and outside, with wonderful views of the valley
We loved our stay at Villa Levante; the villa was lovely and clean and well kitted out with everything you could need. The views from all the rooms and balconies were stunning. The pool and outdoor eating/barbecue area were also maintained to a very high standard. We would thoroughly recommend.
Stunning villa in wonderful location
My husband and I have spent many wonderful holidays in Greece and this was our first time in the Aloni Villas in Aghia Efimia. It was memorable not only for the peaceful location but the warm welcome we received from Mario and Tracey who made our stay at the Levante Villa so comfortable. The villa is a short walk from the centre of the small town situated in a lush valley, the view from our terrace was simply stunning. Every morning we woke to the sound of bells as the sheep moved around the surrounding hills. The villa is perfect, a real home from home. Our hosts had thought of every detail to make our stay so enjoyable, it is very comfortably furnished and well equipped with good quality goods. Every morning we sat on the terrace for breakfast and I relaxed by the large pool which has an outdoor kitchen and barbeque. My husband who is more adventurous, went diving with the local diving school, an adventure he recommends. The villa and setting are so lovely that you need hardly leave it! Aghia Efimia is a small, relaxed town with a variety of restaurants and cafes. It is a great base from which to see the island. We have already booked for next summer and I think we will be returning for many years to come. We would love to bring some friends out to stay in the villa next door, to share our lovely find.
A true "Home fom Home"
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!
Villa Ponente, Aghia Efimia
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!
