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
Why Lynsey Wallace chose Svoronata
It's in a quiet convenient location with great sea views and a choice of delightful restaurants nearby
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We cannot fault this fantastic property, the view is amazing it takes your breath away, the accommodation was spotlessly clean and very well maintained and had everything you could need. The communication with Lynsey was very easy and it was great to meet Mick and Maria they couldn’t have been more helpful. Would we stay here again....Definitely.
Lovely villa, lovely views, well equipped but limited WiF & difficult to access with a car due to very narrow lane. However, would recommend this villa.
A Hidden Gem
Just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Cephie. We have visited Kefalonia since 1993 and this was by far the most relaxing location. Villa Cephie is in an elevated position with breathtaking view of Svoranata and the sea, surrounded by very few properties so no road noise. You are well positioned to tour the island. The villa itself is tastefully furnished with good quality bedding and towels. On arrival it was spotlessly clean - thanks to Nigel and Jackie who manage the villa, they also met us at the airport on arrival to show us to the villa, this was much appreciated. The kitchen has all the equipment you could need, with a good oven and hob, fridge/ freezer and a brand new dishwasher. Washing machine was also a bonus, didn't bring home much washing as the weather was perfect. Car hire is essential, we recommend hiring the smallest possible for your needs, as the approach road is quite narrow, it didn't cause us a problem as our hire car was very small!. Thank you Linsey for sharing your home with us. Would we return, yes definitely.
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!
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,
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.
