About Lynsey Wallace
We have been coming to Kefalonia for 20 years. We loved the island so much that we decided to build a home and have had many years of enjoyment using it.
Lynsey Wallace purchased this Villa in 2003

Very clean, modern and spacious villa with a great outdoor area
We had a great week at Villa Cephie.
The villa itself was very clean and spacious, with everything we needed. There's plenty of space outside with great sea views. Inside and out was very nicely furnished.
There's several beaches within a ten minute drive (and others further afield) and you're not far from other attractions (St George's Castle, Argostoli, and the Gentilini Winery spring to mind). There's three good sized supermarkets ten minutes away too, plus local shops dotted around.
There isn't a lot within walking distance, so a car is pretty much essential.
Lynsey was really helpful and quick to respond to our queries before we arrived.
Would recommend this villa!
What a GREAT find!
Villa Cephie proved to be perfect our holiday this year. Having now travelled to Kefalonia on eight occasions and now finding this Villa, we will definitely look forward to returning here in the future.
The Villa was very comfortable, had beautiful views, very quiet and peaceful and certainly a place to chill and relax. For most of the time, there was a lovely breeze which helped on the very hot days. The description of this property is spot on and could not be closer to the truth.
Situated in Sarlata, a tranquil location in a traditional Greek village with un-interrupted views overlooking the olive groves and pine trees down towards the beautiful beaches of Avithos and Ai Helios both no more than a 10 minutes drive.
From the lounge, double bedroom and the terrace, the wonderful views can be enjoyed. The kitchen was well set out and equipped with washing machine (tucked away in a utility room). Everything seems to have been catered for to ensure that guests enjoy their stay.The twin room is situation at the rear of the property and is a great second bedroom. The bathroom has a large spacious walk in shower with constant hot water. A TV and surround system are provided, this is mainly for watching DVDs and listening to music.
You can relax with the beautiful view on the terrace on the comfy sunbeds. We certainly took full advantage of enjoying the Villa during the day as we were in need of a complete relaxing and chilled break. In addition, if you prefer to use a swimming pool from time to time, hotels in the area welcome you to use their facilities.
We had quite a number of leisurely evenings using the gas BBQ provided and certainly enjoyed shopping at the meat market near the castle where the quality of the meat was excellent with a wonderful choice. The fruit market and bakery in Argostoli provide a great selection of fresh produce.
This Villa is in a perfect position with easy reach of the capital Argostoli and access roads to explore the wonderful island. There are many local beaches of which Avithos and St Thomas (especially good for swimming and snorkelling) are two of our favourites. Many of which have small beach bars or alternatively an amazing sunset can be found on the terrace of the Villa.
There is a huge selection of locally family run restaurants in the area.
Car Hire is essential.
Steve and Lynsey, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday – thank you. You have such a lovely Villa.
Very nice, quite, and friendly
Very friendly and cosy atmosphere. Excellent views and very quite location. Well-maintained and taken care of. The place was clean and we were very well looked after by the lady in charge. The only drawback is that one needs a car to move around (no shops or public transport in close distance) and that it takes some skill to get it in and out of the driveway. The restaurant Dum Spiros (sic) Spero is a very short drive away and it is very good. In general we were very happy with our stay; before receiving the invitation by HomeAway to write the review, I had already sent the following e-mail to the owner, which shows how much we liked the property:
We just came back from Kefalonia and I am just writing to tell you how much we enjoyed your place. It is so friendly and cosy that it was a great pleasure being there. All the best, and I wish you, your husband and your family to continue enjoying the place as much as we did (and even more) for many years to come.
All the best and thank you again for sharing Cephie with us,
Comfortable well located house
We stayed at Villa Cephie for a week and used it as our base to tour the island. The villa itself is comfortable, clean and tidy. The details and photos describing the property give an accurate impression of the villa. The owners organised everything very well, we were met on arrival at the villa and shown how everything works. Mid week somebody passed to change the bed sheets and give us some new towels.
The villa is located on a quiet hill side and the view from the terrace is marvellous. A lovely place to eat dinner or relax with a book. Its ten minutes drive to the airport and the islands capital Argostoli is also conveniently close, about ten miles away. There are several beautiful beaches to choose from if you like to swim. The sea is a few minutes away by car and parking is no problem at all.
The area is quite well populated so there are plenty of Greek taverns to choose from. If you want to find a really Greek tavern, try Anna's taverna at Keramies. Ten minutes drive away you will find the 15th century castle of king George. The views from the castle are spectacular and there are several tavernas up on top of the hill near the castle gates.
All in all, we were very happy with our choice of Villa Cephie and would not hesitate to book it again if or when we return to the lovely island of Cephelonia.
