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.

A lovely, peaceful villa with amazing views and lovely pool. Spotlessly clean and well cared for by Paraskevas - who is a friendly, helpful host. The welcome pack was extensive - wine, beer. Soft drinks, cheese, ham, bread, fruit and more. A truly relaxing holiday. Thank you Paraskevas it was perfect.
Faultless! Beautiful villa and scenery. Spotlessly clean and unique, thanks to Paraskevas who is a perfect host - very discreetly there whenever needed. Very spacious, everything you available that you could possibly need.
The photos don't do this villa justice... we loved it so much we are coming back next year!
Thank you Paraskevas for hosting the best family holiday we have ever had!
Perfection at Penelope!
This is our 4th trip to Paraskevas' pair of villas in Platies, and our 3rd stay in Villa Penelope. Me and the D have started calling it our second home - it now feels so familiar! Paraskevas remains a most wonderful host - stocking our fridge with goats cheese, bread, fresh fruit, beers and a punnet of the most delicious strawberries! Now I'm a city-type of traveller, yet the moment we enter Villa Penelope I wish for nothing more than to sit out on the deck (overlooking the pool and the view beyond) with a brand new paperback! We love it THAT much!
Beautiful villa, location and fantastic host
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at villa penelope. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to relax by the beautiful pool for our entire stay but the villa was very comfortable and a great location to be able to explore the island. Paraskevas our host was very attentive and helpful. Couldn't recommend enough.
The property and view that never disappoints
This was our second visit to Villa Penelope and we initially thought it could not top our original visit and holiday but we were wrong.
Paraskevas was as helpful, discreet and engaging as ever. He describes himself as an amateur but he is the most professional amateur we've ever met!
The villa has everything you need. This includes Air Con which although it was warm there's always a cool or shady place to find on the property and at night we kept the windows open to hear the sea or the relaxing gurgling of the pool.
If there's anything else you need Paraskevas is on hand.
The property is very peaceful but within easy reach of the Airport, Argostoli itself and all the coastal villages to the South of the Island. Given Kefalonias size your also within striking distance of any part of the island. We felt a Hire Car was a must.
For us the best part of the Villa were the views....incredible and breathtaking every morning from when you wake until you return to sleep.
Thank You Paraskevas for a wonderful holiday.

Amazing villa, perfect location, great host.
This villa is just amazing. Perfectly located with superb views, it is a must stay location. The host, Paraskevas, is such a lovely, honest and genuine host who has the balance between being there but not intrusive just right.
On arrival the delights contained within the fridge and kitchen were totally unexpected but so thoughtful. We didn't need to shop until day 4 !! The food goodies brought to us by the host during our 2 week stay were most welcome.....Home made apricot pie, fresh bread and breakfast croissants and souvlaki to name just a few.
The cleanliness of the villa and pool was exceptional even when the wind started to blow.
I can't recommend this villa highly enough. We will certainly return and can't wait until we do.
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.
