Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to write to say how much we loved villa Stephania and

enjoyed our holiday in Kefalonia.

The owners were waiting for us, they were very friendly and attentive.

They were always around and about if needed, without being intrusive.

What a lovely couple. The villa was stunning, beautifully kept, with

everything one could need. Clean and fresh bedding and towels after

only 3 days was a nice surprise ( although not expected) also the

welcome pack of bread, wine etc was a real help too. It is situated so

centrally that it made exploring the island very easy. We just wished

we could have stayed longer, it was perfect snd we were very sad to leave.

A truly lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Our villa was just lovely, set on the outskirts of a quiet village surrounded by beautiful views of the mountains. The villa itself is homely, very nicely decorated and very well maintained. The pool area is great, a good size pool, kept very clean and surrounded by a lovely garden with roses, orange and lemons trees.

We had a very warm welcome from the owner, who kindly left some provisions (bread, marmalade, apricots, milk, water ..)

The location on the Island itself we found perfect, few minutes by car to Agia Effimia for a good choice of restaurants for dinner, in a lovely setting. Fiscardo, Assos, Argostoli and Antisamos beach all within a reasonable drive.

We loved beautiful Kefallonia and the villa was a perfect home for the week.

Would highly recommend.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lovely villa for 9 days, two families with 4 kids. The owner welcomed us very friendly! He even had put some fodd & drinks into the fridge that we have something for the 1st day. The house was perfectly clean as well was the pool! High chairs and baby beds were waiting for the kids and the house was cleaned 2x during our stay. You can reach the next village very easy by car in just a view minutes. You can find supermarkets, bakery and very nice restaurants here.

It was really a great stay and we will come back for sure! We can recommend this villa very much for a family holiday.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful. Comfortable rooms and we liked the pool and the various different areas to dine and relax in. Location is perfect - very close drive to beautiful beaches. We ate in agia efimia most nights where there are numerous tavernas. The back drop of the beautiful mountains that this villa is set in makes it truly stunning. We came here for a relaxing family holiday, and that was exactly what we got. We will definitely be coming back to kefalonia and to this villa.

Gorgeous villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, Mom, Dad and two boys 11 & 9.

This villa was really lovely, the pool area was the best we have had in the many villas we have rented. Comfortable firm beds made for a great nights sleep - something my husband always worries about with his back problem when sleeping away from home. The villa owner was really welcoming and generous - we had a late flight home and he said we could stay in the villa all day as he didn't have new guest arriving until the day after we left. The villa is in a quiet residential location and is beautifully planted with scented roses and jasmine in the garden. It is only a five minute drive to Agia Efimia which is a lovely small harbour village. There is a good choice of tavernas with really friendly staff and great food. The bakery here is fab - lovely freshly baked bread and wonderful baklava and cakes. The famous Mirtos beach is only a 10-15 min drive from the villa too - when we went at end of May and there were no facilities there - don't know whether the cafe only opens in the high season or if it is permanently shut.

Assos and Fiskardo are both worth a visit - about 30-45 minute drive from the villa. We also went to Argostoli one morning to see the leatherback turtles in the harbour - a must see if your love wildlife! Really want to come back to Kefalonia and would not hesitate to book this villa again.

A Greek Oasis

  • 5 of 5

A top class villa in a quiet location but within minutes drive to the local amenities/beaches/tavernas of Aghia Efimia and beyond. The friendly owners maintain the villa to a high standard and pop in through the week to change linen/towels.

The pool was a real hit with our young boys and the large pergola area was a welcome source of shade during the hotter parts of the day.

Absolutely fab...

we, company of 4 adults (50+), just came back from our holiday on Kefalonia. This villa was a very pleasant surprise in our large experience in renting holiday homes.

It was very clean, well kept with good facilities. The owners are helpfull and make you feel welcome.

It is 5 minutes by car from the habour with lots of restaurants and the most beautiful beach is 10 minutes away.

The house has quite some stairs, so not very suitable for children just starting to walk.
