Sunshine luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at the quality of the furnishings and decorations , particularly the bedding. The villa is spacious and very well equipped including torches and beach umbrellas. The welcome hamper was very generous and much appreciated. The pool and barbecue area and hammock were very popular . Only drawback ...definitely need a car and the track from the road is very bumpy ! Agia Efimia is quiet and pretty and we enjoyed Amalia's taverna and Steki with live Greek folk music.

A place to be

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have absolutely loved loved our stay at villa Lito & Phivos, the place felt very much like home during our stay. We were group of 10 persons (two families) and Villa Lito and Phivos were the best choice. Two villas close to each other are surrounded by beautiful gardens and each of them has a private swimming pool.

We loved returning to the villas, is one of the most peaceful places on earth!”

The whole family had a great time. Thank you once again.”

Phivos fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Well we had wonderful 10 days in Phivos villa, when we arrived their was a lovely welcome pack with olive oil, bread, jams, wine, honey so no need to rush straight to the shops. The house is amazing beautiful interior and exterior and absolutely everything you need for a holiday no need to bring much apart from clothes as the villa fully equipped even nice dressing gowns. The pool is so nice to relax and and outside area too you can just chill out by the outdoor kitchen to get shade if warm and hot. Agia effimia has some lovely little restaurant where we ate out a bit and great butchers/supermarket to get stuff for bbq. Fiskardo is a must and myrtos beach has the most beautiful views I have ever seen. I absolutely love kefalonia and want to come back to phivos next year, thanks to phivos too for answering all my questions we had he is super efficient.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect stay at Phivos villa. The location, set in the mountains overlooking the harbour in Agia Efimia is idyllic and the accommodation is outstanding. The villa is well thought out and there are plenty of living areas to enjoy throughout the day and evening. The outside area is truly amazing with a good sized pool and lots of comfortable seating. The bedrooms have a boutique hotel feel and the rest of the accommodation is elegant yet homely. We had a wonderful time exploring the local area. The village is a short drive away from the villa and has a good range of shops and restaurants. It has a warm and authentic feel, we enjoyed shopping there, the bakery and butchers/deli were fabulous.

Our highlights of the holiday include a trip to Melassani cave and a day hiring boats from Boulevard Boats (in the harbour) to explore the island. We had a fantastic time snorkelling in the coves around the coastline. We miss it already and we hope to return again.

Stunning villa, pool and views

  • 5 of 5

This villa has everything you could wish for. The owners have thought of everything to make this a relaxing and comfortable stay, down to the ice box and blocks that I almost packed! The arrival basket of goodies was perfect and satisfied teenagers and adults alike with the inclusion of biscuits fruit juice wine coffee and basics to have breakfast so there was no hurry for the supermarkets. The air con was superb at night and opening doors and windows drew a gentle breeze during the day. We did suffer from mosquito bites and were therefore pleased to discover soothing gel for this in the first aid box. Great to have separate towels for the pool, and house, and beach, and we made full use of the beach brollies. Also loved the beautiful bath robes! There's a supermarket 5 mins up the hill and Agia Efimia is a superb spot 15 mins away at the coast one way and Myrtos 15 mins the other. We loved Assoss too (about 40 mins - went twice) and Fiscardo. Many places in easy travel distance. Loved all seating areas, and there were many to chose from, from the sunny terrace and pool side to the shaded BBQ area. We loved watching the lizards catch moths and flies on the terrace wall while making the most of the music that could be played outdoors - or the cicadas! We will most definitely be returning to enjoy this beautiful villa, re-visit places we loved, and visit those we didn't have time for.

Very well equipped villa with superb views.

  • 5 of 5

We have just reluctantly returned from our two week stay at Villa Phivos. We all wished we could have stayed longer. The villa is well located just a short drive from Agia Effimia in one direction and the sea at Myrtos Beach the other way. Its central location in Kefalonia meant that all parts of the island are so easily accessible. The views from the villa to the the sea and the mountains are superb. To be able to open the bedroom windows and look at the boats leaving the harbour is a brilliant way to start the day.

We have stayed in many villas and this was without a doubt the best and most thoughtfully equipped villa of them all. So many of those essentials that you normally carry with you, or have to buy on arrival, were provided.

Villa Phivos is a little gem.
