About John Tapsas
My name is John Tapsas. I was born and raised in Australia from Greek parents. I came back to Kefalonia on 2000 and got involved with the tourism. I met my wife and we now have a daughter. My wife is also involved with the tourism industry. I love nature and I think Kefalonia is a beautiful island combining sea and mountain views.
John Tapsas purchased this Villa in 2009
Why John Tapsas chose Lakithra
On 2009 we built our villa and we are feeling very proud. It is a private villa with pool and is located in the beautiful village of Lakithra. Close to most of the beaches and 5 minutes away from the capital, Argostoli. Based on a peaceful location with breathtaking views. Perfect for relaxation. Our village has a taverna, pizza place, souvlaki place, bar, bakery, pastry shop, mini market, so you don't miss anything. All these are in a walking distance from the villa. The village is well known for Byrons Rock, with an exclusive view at the airport, the sea and Zante.
What makes this Villa unique
Our customers really enjoy their stay at the villa,as they enjoy our hospitality. They spent too many hours by the pool,enjoying the amazing views of Argostoli Bay and Mountain Ainos. Relaxation and peacefulness are the 2 words that describe our property.

Thank you very much for your kind words.It was such a pleasure meeting your family.Glad you enjoyed your vacation.Hope to see you again in the future.
Amazing villa, the best!! John and Mado are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Mado cooks great food. John picked us up from the airport and was always on hand to ask questions of - they live in the next house. We would totally recommend staying here. It is in a quiet spot but very accessible to whatever you want to do on Kefalonia.
Perfect place to stay in the south of Kefalonia
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful villa in Lakithra. It is very well located near Argostoli. The views from the villa are amazing. The hosts John and Mado were extremely nice and helpful. They greeted us like family. We arrived by ferry at Pessada port and John came to meet us and showed us how to get to the house. We arrived around lunch time and they had prepared a complete lunch for us. It couldn’t have been better! Thank you again John and Mado for making this stay so pleasant. We would go back to this villa without any hesitations!
Thank you very much for your kind words.
We hope to see you and your family some time again in the future.Glad you enjoyed your stay....Kisses to the rest of the family....
A beautiful villa with amazing views, spotless, with everything you would need for relaxing holiday. John and Mado are the most welcoming and friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them to make your stay the best it could be. The option of having home cooked Greek food cooked by Mado was a great idea and made a nice change. Would highly recommend this villa for a great holiday

Absolutely fabulous. Beautiful villa, incredible views and amazing hospitality!
This is our fourth visit to Kefalonia and we can honestly say this is by far our best villa experience. The villa is immaculate and very thoughtfully equipped. Views from the villa are spectacular and the kindness and hospitality of the hosts were incredible.The welcome meal was a lovely surprise and gratefully received together with the well stocked fridge. Mado’s cuisine was excellent and her mother’s Mousaka was a lovely surprise. Nothing was too much trouble and we will definitely be back. Thank you so much for making our holiday so enjoyable.
