Ammnoy is a beautiful, immaculately presented villa in a large plot amongst a small cluster of private villas in Trapezaki. Large L-shaped pool and ample parking with extensive gardens and terraces offering plenty of shaded areas for relaxing and eating outside. There are sea and mountain views and tavernas and mini market are 500m away. Inside is light and airy, fully air-conditioned with well equipment and furnished kitchen and dining areas. Two sets of patio doors lead from the lounge and dining area onto the flower- decked covered terrace, pool and sun terraces below. There is a downstairs cloakroom and an air-conditioned twin bedroom (with en-suite). Two further air-conditioned bedrooms are on the first floor. The first is a twin with en-suite shower and patio doors to balcony overlooking the pool. The pretty master double-bedded room has bathroom en-suite (half bath and shower) and patio doors leading to front and side terraces with sea views and a covered seating area.
We are a semi-retied couple with grown up children and grandchildren. We have lived on the south coast of England for the past 43 years. We first came to Kefalonia in 1988, and immediately fell in love with this wonderful island. We have been back almost every year since and in 2000 our dream of a place in Kefalonia came true. We purchased the land locally and my son-in-law designed a villa for us and a local builder built it.
We have set out to make it a home for us and our family, and for others to enjoy the beauty of Kefalonia. We have spent much time in making colourful gardens and places to relax and eat outside. We use the home on a regular basis and it is always in demand with our grandchildren who have come to love the place and the freedom it gives them.

We fell in love with Kefalonia when we first came in 1988 and stopped in Lourdas. We came every year after that and never dreamt we would end up owning our own piece of paradise. A place full of wonderful, friendly people. In 2000 we had the opportunity of buying a piece of land and my son-in-law designed a villa for us. Our local friends recommended a builder and the villa was built without any major problem. We have spent time making it a home for all visitors to enjoy, just as we and our family do every year. It is a place to relax, wind down and soak up the atmosphere and jump in the pool to cool off or sit in the many shaded areas of the garden.
We have a number of good tavernas within walking distance and there are many places to eat in Argostoli which is only a 20 minute drive.
You can enjoy the large well-stocked gardens surrounding the villa and sit in the shade or under the pergola beside the pool.
Upstairs the bedrooms have their own balcony and you can sit and watch the swallows swoop down to drink in the pool just before sun-set. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting up on the balcony, reading a book, having a drink and watching the sun-set or watching the children having so much fun in the pool.
Then, there is nothing better than your own Greek style BBQ which is close to the pool and pergola.
The pool and gardens lights mean you can even enjoy a mid-night bathe- one way of seeing another perfect day out in this wonderful place.
Our first visit to Kefalonia and this Villa was a perfect base to relax with an amazing sea view or to go an explore the island. Pool is excellent and the location is perfect for beach, restaurants and touring. We should have explored the island more but spent many lazy days by the pool reading and swimming followed by beer, wine and BBQ's. A perfect holiday for us and our teenage daughters. Highlights for visiting are Agostoli town to see the Turtles in the bay. Underground lake in Messanali, Mount Aenos and Robola Vineyard.
Just back from a brilliant week in Villa Ammnoy which was perfect for our holiday with our two daughters aged 10 and 8. The villa is excellent and has very comfy beds and everything you could need. The pool is fabulous and are lots of shady spots in the beautiful colourful gardens to chill out. Our girls loved the swing chair and the balcony. Great views - very private but within easy reach of shop and lots of great restaurants. Nearby Trapezaki beach was perfect. We explored the island lots by car and this was a great base to do that from. A really relaxing week in this wonderful friendly unspolit island. Was very hard to leave!
I have been going to the the wonderful unspoilt island of Kefalonia for many years now, and have spent the last few in the glorious Villa Ammnoy at Trapesaki. This Villa has proved to be not only a wonderful base but is one of the most comfortable and prettiest ,with its beautiful sculptured and mature gardens, which always seem to be full of colour,to the tastefully decorated interior which is stocked with everything one should need. The full air conditioning more than comes in useful in the hot weather. I shall be returning to the island and hopefully staying at Villa Ammnoy again. It's perfect.
We have just returned from a 7 day holiday in Kefalonia and we stayed at Villa Ammnoy. The villa is absolutely beautiful, set in some stunning gardens with a great swimming pool. The views out to sea are amazing as is the view of the mountains at the back of the villa. Whether sitting by the pool, under the pergola or on the upstairs balconies you cannot help but be mesmerised by the beauty and tranquility of this place. Great facilities for outdoor dining with a huge BBQ and covered Pergola. The owner was extremely helpful in answering all our questions before going and even pre-booked a hire car for us which made things so much easier. We were given comprehensive directions to the villa from the airport along with some great recommendations for dining out. It is a great base from which to explore the whole island (whilst car hire is essential to explore the island - you could stay within walking distance of the villa and not get bored of the restaurants and tavernas). I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone considering a holiday in Kefalonia.
Delightful place to stay. Complete peace. Villa contains everything you need for a peaceful holiday. Well looked after and the gardens are a delight. Very good base to enjoy the beautiful island. Somewhere you want to return to time and time again. Would highly recommend this villa. If you can tear yourself away from the villa good tavernas quite close and beaches. Car is a must.
