About DIMITRIS ROUCHOTAS
I am a civil engineer,i work for the municipality of kefalonia.I am married with Niki which is a teacher. We both grew up and went school in Argostoli,we have 3 children .
DIMITRIS ROUCHOTAS purchased this Villa in 2011
Why DIMITRIS ROUCHOTAS chose Katapodata
My grandmother Chrisanthi and my Mother were born in the village of Grizata.We have a small house in the village,I use when i was young to spent many summers in this place,so i always wanted to built a new house here.
What makes this Villa unique
What i love in this villa is the spectacular views to the valley and to the swimming pool , also that villa is new,has all the comforts every body needs,plus the gorgeous swimming private pool.Our villa is located in the central of the island ,so it is an ideal base to explore the island and to visit many nice places of interests like Drogarati Cave, situated about 2,5km from our villa,Melissani famous underground Lake only 7 km away from our Villa,Myrtos famous beach about 20 mins drive from our villa,Antisamos gorgeous beach only 7 km away from our villa,Assos village ,Fiscardo village etc. Also the area our villa is located is still unspoiled, it is surrounded from so much green,there is quiet,and of course the sound of the water of the small stream that flows only 200 m away(during winter and early spring time) Not to forget that swimming in our new private swimming pool is fantastic and very relaxing. .

Lovely views, clean and well kept
Stayed for 10 nights with 2 young children who made good use of a fantastic pool. The villa itself was well kept and cleaned every few days. Amazing views across to the mountains and the forest canopy below the gardens. Nice situation within a sleepy village which gave you a sense of mixing in amongst the locals and getting a real flavour of island life. Within 7 minutes or so drive from Sami which severed us well with a good selection of restaurants and cafes, although Agia Efimia (15/20 minutes away) was our most go to destination for eating out. All in all a very enjoyable stay and the owner was helpful throughout. We'll certainly look to return.
Thank you Daniel for you excellent review. I am glad to hear you enjoed your stay in our villa and on our island .I am wishing you all the best and i would love to see you again returning to our villa.
The Villa was everything we hoped for. Lovely quiet spot but only a few minutes by car to Sami. Great views and a fantastic pool.
The Villa has been finished to a very good standard and all the facilities are there.
Sami has some very good restaurants and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. In fact everywhere we went the Greek people were extremely welcoming and could not do enough to help us.
Thanks you so much for your comments, i am happy that our villa met your expectations and you enjoyed your stay at our villa.
We have tried hard to built the villa to a very high standard and to include many facilities.
As you saw our villa is built in a quiet spot only a few minutes drive by car to Sami small town where you can find very good restaurants, supermarkets,bakeries,bars etc.
You are very welcome to visit us again
Perfectly located on this beautiful island
The Villas are located a 5 minute drive from Sami in the quiet village of Kapodata. Dimitris met us on arrival and was most helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay.
Villa Zoi is one of two villas next to each other so would make a great choice if you were two families travelling together.
Our Villa had all the facilities we needed. The washing machine is a great addition as we stayed for two weeks and went home with clean clothes!
Nearby Sami has everything you need and is a very pretty place. It is also the perfect location to visit the many many beautiful sights on this amazing island.
The Villa has beautiful mountainside views and the pool is well maintained.
Thank you Dimitris for your hospitality and for all your help and kindness. We will definitely be back.
Many thanks for taking the time to write this nice review.You are more than welcome to visit us again .
Modern well equipped Villa. Located just a few kilometres outside Sami, the villa had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday.
We were met by Dimitris, who was very easy to deal with.
The Villa is well equipped but the best features are outside with a wonderful patio area with steps leding to pool and garden area..
I would recommend this villa.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for your nice comments.
As you saw our villa is located at the edge of Grizata village in a quite place that offers independence,freedom,quietness,away from crowds.You were delightful guests and i look forward to welcoming you back at some time in the future.
Excellent private villa
We stayed for two weeks and cannot fault one aspect. Dimitris met us, showed us around the villa and gave some recommendations of places to go and things to see in Kefalonia.
The villa has everything we needed for our stay and we have already decided to return next year.
Thank you very much for your kind and warm words. I'm very glad you had such a lovely time in our villa. Thank you also for deciding to return the same period next year.
As you saw with your eyes end of September and (i inform that also April and October) are also nice periods for someone to visit kefalonia and stay in our villa as the weather is still nice ,the sea is warm ,prices are much lower than Summer and there are no many people as in the period of high season.
Not to forget that Kefalonia is quite a big island , the area that our villa is located is quite and even in high season there are lots of quite places (beaches,taverns,cafe etc)
