Villa Anemoni - everything you want in a villa
The day we arrived it was 39C but the airport, car hire, instructions to get to Villa Anemoni were all so easy we were in that glorious pool in no time. We were surprised and delighted how small and unspoilt Kefalonia was and at this end of the island even more so. The villa is large, airy and modern with a great view across the valley and down to the sea. The housekeeper was very helpful and attentive and we were very well looked after. For the first 3 days we stayed by the pool and then started to explore the many different beaches on the island. After extensive research (!) our favourite was Kiminia which is a 5 min drive from the villa and great for kids. Our favorite day was when we rented a boat for the day (in the local village) and went all along the coast snorkeling in the coves and caves - absolute paradise. It is worth coming to this area just to be able to do that as I didn't notice it being offered elsewhere. The village also has several shops and a restaurant "strip" of about 10 places to eat as well as a cocktail bar, bakery etc. That said the villa is very private - a 5 min walk from the village and tucked away in a wooded hillside. The water temperature and clarity ensured the kids spent hours daily snorkeling and after a day on the beach they spent even more hours in the villa's beautiful pool. I would highly recommend it.
Many thanks,come back anytime!
Fantastic.great pool.spacious bedrooms.lovely outdoor area.well equiped.lovely helpful cleaner.
We were traveling with 2 small children for a wedding and were a bit apprehensive but this villa was absolutely perfect. The pool was lovely, a shallow end for the kids to splash about in and great for the adults to have a good swim. We were there during a bit of a heat wave (peaks of 39°) so were very thankful for the aircon, which worked prefectly in all bedrooms, the living area faces the sun and warmed up quickly as the sun came up, the aircon worked but not quite as effectively, but I'm being a typical picky brit now...it was live-able! The lovely owner recommended car hire which was definitely worth it as the villa is up a rather large hill (as is most of kefalonia) which gives you spectacular views, especially from the upstairs bedroom balcony. There are plenty of lovely restaurants along the beach front at katelios, we went to "Maria's" a couple of times as they were super friendly with the kids, food was great and well priced. The bigger resort of skala is a 15/20 minute drive away. Driving the windy roads took a bit of getting used but was loads of fun, i even had a go driving on the "wrong side" for the 1st time! We met the lovely cleaner who made some helpful kid friendly recommendedations...karminia beach being one, stays very shallow for a long way out and the water is ridiculously clear and warm. Overall an excellent time had by all, we'd love to go back and stay at villa anemoni again!
Beautiful and peaceful
This villa is absolutely perfect for getting away from it all but still within walking distance of a quiet beach and a few tavernas.
We are a family with 3 teenagers who found plenty to do in the local village and it was a short drive to Skala for more choice.
The villa is really clean and well furnished and the owner and housekeeper could not have been more helpful. We managed to leave a couple of small items (chromecast) and they even had thenm posted back to us in the UK.
Could have happily stayed all summer!
It's always nice to have a family who treats the villa as they would their own home . We do hope you come back one day .
Beautiful location, very comfortable property
We were given a very warm welcome by the hosts, who told us in much detail about how to find the villa and what to do when there.
The villa itself is lovely, very spacious with big balconies, all the mod cons and a beautiful infinity pool, incredible views, lemon and olive trees in abundance all around.
Ketelios is charming, and should you wish to explore further there is a very informative book at the property telling you in much detail about the surrounding places. Hiring a car is important if you wish to explore.
The beaches and landscape on the island are just breathtaking. Really recommend this property. Five stars.
Many thanks ,glad you had a good time.
All the best,and hope to have you again .
Fabulous Stay in Great Location
Very spacious and comfortable villa up the hill from Katelios with great views across the valley and bays.
The nearby beaches are the softest sand on the island and perfect for children. They run for a a few kilometres and are almost deserted, just heaven.
Huyshe was on hand through the stay to make sure everything was smooth and we had everything we needed.
Overall a fantastic stay.
We arrived at the villa and shared our holiday with friends and our children. We had an amazing holiday, loved the privacy of the property , its immaculate condition and the walks to the beach and tavernas! Overall a fantastic stay, will definitely come back and recommend to more friends at home.
