Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Off the grid yet 5 minutes away from the beautiful Agia Effimia.
The property is very well thought out. Tastefully decorated. Quality furnishings. In fact we would move in tomorrow just as it is.
The place is silent at night and during the day you hear very little. The villa is very private and the pool is a very good size.
One word of advice, if you use the oven watch the temperature because it’s incredibly efficient; quality again!
I can’t fault the property at all, if you want a peaceful break in a very good quality villa look no further.

Exactly as described
The Villa was exactly as described, fully equipped with everything you need. The villa and its surroundings are beautiful, quiet and peaceful with the occasional tinkle of goats bells in the distance.
Phivos answered all our questions promptly and was very helpful.
Amazing villa in a beautiful island
The house is extraordinary. The pool is wonderful. The view is amazing.
It was a dream vacation. Kefalonia is beautiful, and villa Phivos is the perfect place to stay in the island.
We loved everything in it.
The host is very generous and most thoughtful.
We would love to come back every year.
Very comfortable stay and great facilities
Can't fault the villa in any way as it has absolutely everything you need for a comfortable and restful holiday.
A most relaxing and comfortable villa with everything you need and more.
We loved the villa. It is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We liked the varied spaces to eat and relax both in and outside the villa. The swimming pool is excellent, large enough for a good swim and to play ball games. We came with our 3 grown up children and the space worked really well for us. The welcoming hamper was much appreciated. We loved the location, quiet and secluded but not far from the tavernas in Agia Effimia. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you Phivos.

Villa Phivos is a beautiful villa in an ideal location
The villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. There are lots of thoughtful touches and we loved being there. The pool and pool area is lovely with amazing views. The barbecue area is very well kitted out and provides a comfortable shady area to sit. The gardens were beautiful too. The villa feels very remote but you are only 5 mins drive from the lovely little port of Ag Efimia where there are lots of places to eat (all good). It is also in an ideal location for exploring the north of the island which we thought was the prettiest. We hope to return as we loved this place and the people so much.
