About Paraskevas Chionis
Just a few years ago, me and my family decided to build this villa on this lovely spot. We used to come to this land, gazing at the view, as it belonged to my father and my grand father. Over the past few years that we’ve been renting this villa, we’ve met exciting people and made great friends. My family and me personally manage this property putting into it a lot of effort and our passion. We are only genuine hosts, trying to share with our guests, our love for this place and the island, offering them everything we would like to have, in a home away from home.
What makes this Villa unique
The privileged and peaceful location of the property, the picturesque surroundings with spectacular sea and mountain views, the privacy that provides make this villa an ideal destination for a romantic holiday or quality time with your family. The villa is decorated with handmade pottery and paintings, gentle contribution of a dear friend of mine.

Magical 5-star villa ticks all the boxes and more with an exceptional owner
When we looked at making our booking last year I came across Ionian Sea View villas and read the most incredible reviews. Whilst we had no doubts it would be a lovely place there was a nagging doubt....... could it all be too good to be true??
From the moment we drove down the hill to Villa Oddyseus the reviews were not just true, they undersold it! Ionian Sea View Villas are quite simply stunning. The views over sea and mountains are breathtaking and the whole design, the quality, the contents and the cleanliness is so perfect. You could not my wish for a more perfect and peaceful setting for a relaxing holiday and it was ideal for our family of four. Whilst the villa was immaculate in every way the star of the show was the kind and attentive Paraskevas. In all the years of travelling and holiday stays I have never met a more welcoming and caring host. Paraskevas ensured that we were greeted at the airport, ensured that we were satisfied with the car hire and lead us back to his paradise villas. Not only that, he went to the effort of providing all the essentials in the fridge from bread, milk, fruit, snacks, some local treats and some very welcome ice cold beers, served from a chilled glass (this man knows how to host) and some local wine and soft drinks and water. What’s more, everything is presented like a 5 star hotel with embroidered bedding and towels. Also, during our 10 day stay the whole villa was cleaned top to bottom with fresh bedding and towels twice! Also, what was so enchanting, Paraskevas gave us a thorough tour of the villa on arrival and poured us drinks whilst he gave us a map of the island and talked us through a wonderful guide of things to see and do and places to eat. Trust me, this man has great taste and his recommendations were excellent. Importantly, once we had settled in Paraskevas was so respectful with our privacy. Whilst he also lives on the gated property his home is entirely separate and he let us enjoy our stay alone. However, we saw him most mornings wiping down the sun beds and cleaning the pool first thing and on occasion he brought us some delightful local treats from his kitchen. Importantly you do need a car to stay here as it is in the middle of nowhere but it is so worth it and will allow you to explore this beautiful island. I’m already pining for the glorious morning views from the bedroom and the enchanting evenings around the lit azure pool. Thank you Paraskevas- we’ll certainly be back 🙂�
Our stay was more than 5 stars. The villa is beautiful, well equipped with a gorgeous view and pool. Paraskevas, the owner, makes it even better. His attention to detail, his warmth, kindness and generosity really makes you feel welcome.
We had a wonderful 10 day stay and did not want to leave. We highly recommend this villa for anyone visiting Kefalonia.
We have just had a week at this fantastic villa, I cannot speak highly enough about it and it’s owner the very lovely Paraskevas who made us more than welcome. It is in no doubt the cleanest and most immaculate place I have ever had the pleasure to hire. I would highly recommend it and we will certainly look forward to returning one day.
Fantastic, villa, pool and location
Our third visit and just as perfect as the first two. Spotlessly clean, a wonderful peaceful location and a fantastic welcome.
The villa and pool make for the ideal location for a relaxing break. Close enough to food, drink and beaches, but far enough away to be quiet, as if you are the only people on the island.
The owner cannot do enough for you and ensures everything is just as you would want it and nothing is too much trouble.
The view is something we never tire of.
We hope to back again as soon as we can.

Paradise on Earth
Our recent holiday in Kefalonia was probably one of the best we have ever had. The island itself is fantastic with all the best that Greek holidays have to offer. However, the villa we hired this time was truly remarkable and provided everything and more that you could possibly want to make a holiday perfect. This was mainly due to our host Paraskevas who made us so welcome it’s hard to find the right words that describe the contribution he made. By way of example, the fridge was stocked all sorts of foods and drink. There were beers on chill which provided a welcomed refreshment on our arrival. On the way to the villa Paraskevas stopped at a local bakery and bought us all sorts of delicious pastries to go with the already plentiful supplies. As it was our wedding anniversary during the stay he and his wife went to the trouble to bake us a delicious apricot pie that we ate with ice cream he also supplied. In addition to this he was the epitome of discretion although he and his family live on site you rarely saw him accept early in the morning when he might be collecting garden debris or cleaning the pool. He always asked when it was most convenient to carry out a villa clean etc. The HomeAway website carries a video to illustrate the villas and this is a very accurate illustration of what you will find except that its even better in reality. The views are simply breathtaking especially as the sun sets in the evening. The villas are of the highest quality in all respects. I cannot recommend Paraskevas and his villas highly enough....the whole experience was fantastic.
The villas are a 20 minutes drive from both the international airport of the island (direct flights from UK/EU) and the ports of Argostoli (scheduled journeys from Italy via Patra) and Poros (scheduled journeys from Killini) as well as a 30 minute drive from the port of Sami.
We always welcome our guests at the airport and honestly assist them in their needs.
The villas are situated close to restaurants, bars, supermarkets and gas stations and car rental offices.
