Fantastic Place and great location to see the north of the island.
Well maintained and appointed property. Easy to reach, spacious for five and a beautiful garden and pool.
Villa Katerina is a beautiful house located near to a number of lovely beaches and towns.
The Villa was everything we expected and more. Meme and Andreas were wonderful hosts and could not be more helpful or friendly. The Villa was cleaned twice a week ( and I mean properly cleaned!!) with crisp new sheets on all the beds on each visit. We used the BBQ on several occasions and that was also cleaned.
We were very pleased with the location of the villa, which although rural, was within easy reach of several wonderful beaches, towns and tavernas.
We intend returning in the future and have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone.

Superb Kefalonian Villa
We had a fabulous 2 week holiday at Villa Katerina. The owners warmly welcomed us and couldn't do enough to ensure that we all had a wonderfully comfortable stay at their villa. The villa was cleaned twice a week whilst we were there, the pool was kept immaculately clean and the grass cut weekly too. The air conditioning all worked excellently to provide us with cool sleeping conditions at night despite the very high daytime temperatures. The villa is located perfectly for visiting all the island and Agia Efimia proved a favourite for evening meals with its many tavernas. All in all an excellent find and we would love to return at some point in the future. Thank you for a wonderful holiday experience on your beautiful island.
Fantastic family holiday, the villa was extremely spacious and clean. A real home from home. Thanks
We had a wonderful 2 week holiday at the villa. We all found the space great so that both children had their own room. Everywhere was extremely clean including the pool areas and gardens. The location was quiet and relaxing and even felt like home having its own family of cats. There is a bakery, supermarket and taverna all within walking distance and the beautiful Agia Efimia is only a 5 minute drive. The pool table was also a massive bonus for the children. We will definitely be booking again.
Superbly presented stone villa with beautiful gardens and good sized family pool
We had a fabulous holiday in Kefalonia and we couldn't have chosen a better villa or location. The villa, is presented to the highest of standards and is clearly well looked after and maintained by its owners. It's very roomy, well equipped with balconies to both bedrooms and with air conditioning to these and the kitchen living room area although these were not needed in the day as the house was so cool if you wanted a break from the heat. The outside area is beautiful with well maintained lawns, topiary and fruit trees, a lovely undercover seating and barbeque area and a clean refreshing pool which was used constantly during our stay by our two teenage daughters. This is all set against the beautiful backdrop of the nearby mountains. We were met by the owner who was very welcoming and showed us around the property on our arrival and even provided some essentials, bread, milk, eggs and olives which was a nice touch. We had one issue with the parasols while we were there but he came immediately with a new one - he lives only ten minutes away.
There is a fantastic bakery at the end of the road which you must visit as it has the most delicious bread and pastries I've ever tasted. The villa is a five minute drive from Agia Effimia which is a beautiful harbour village which has everything you need, a good selection of tavernas, supermarkets, bakery, butcher and cafes and sandwich bars. We went there every night to eat and enjoyed walking along the harbour which is full of moored yachts before returning to our villa where we watched the sun set over the mountains. We were only at the villa for a week and wished it had been for longer and we would certainly stay at this villa again.
Great villa, lovely position
The villa was beautiful. About a 50 minute drive from the airport, a very pretty drive in mostly coastal roads, quite easy to find with good directions provided by the owners. Greeted on arrival and shown around. The villa itself is finished to a very high standard, the beds are comfortable with extra pillows, blankets and air conditioning, which was only needed for a few hours in evening as the villa was nice and cool due to the stone. The pool and patio area was nice, pool was cleaned numerous times whilst we stayed and fresh fruit trees surround the gardens. The villa was only a 2-3 drive outside Agia Effimia which is lovely harbour, great restaurants, cocktail bars and coffee shops. Only two tiny (non) issues for us, we like to cook a lot on holiday and I found the kitchen to be a little short on equipment and utensils but not a huge problem. Also there was no cleaning products just for us to clean around as we were going along (however the villa was spotless when we arrived and was cleaned during our stay too). I would still happily give the villa 5 stars, it was as lovely as it looks in the pictures and the owners are only a 5 minute drive away if you should need anything and are very quick to reply to email.
5 min drive (3.5 km) to Agia Efimia with a lot of little pebble coves, ideal for snorkelling.
4 km (10 min drive) to the most beautiful beach of Kefalonia, the Myrtos beach.
