About Philip

I grew up in Skala and lived there with my family until it was time for me to London for my studies, back in 2007. I now live and work in London while assisting my parents with the villas as much as I can.

My job is to help with the bookings because unfortunately they don't speak English. What they lack in English fluency though, they more than make up in their enthusiasm and love for the properties and their visitors.

Philip purchased this villa in 2007

Why Philip chose Kefallonia (Cephalonia)

My father built these villas and has poured all his love and effort in them. My mother and he are the ones looking after the complex all year round, taking care of the visitors and ensuring they have an unforgettable stay.

Enjoy the magnificent views of the Ionian see from the comfort of your private pool. Walk to the great sandy beach of Kaminia and maybe catch a glimpse of the Caretta Caretta turtle laying its eggs! Or simply relax in the garden, lay down in the hammock and enjoy a glass of our complimentary wine, from grapes grown in the very property you are staying at.

Far enough from the noise of the nearby town in an idyllic location, while still being close enough to the beach, these villas are perfect both for a family holiday and a romantic getaway.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Recommended by previous visitors known to me. 6 adults and an infant aged 1. Had an excellent holiday. The villa is well positioned with views of Zakynthos and close enough to Skala to walk into if you need shopping or a bit of nightlife. The villa is well equipped with everything you need and the owners parents are on hand to clean the pool and service the rooms. Will definitely book again in the future.

Fantastic accommodation, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Poseidon is absolutely beautiful, the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. We arrived to find everything as per the website photographs and spotlessly clean. The owners, Ante and Spiros are so hospitable and friendly and yet completely unobtrusive. The pool was fantastic as was the view of the Ionian Sea. 2 weeks went far too fast, we would definitely love to return.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely the best summer holiday we have had! Excellent accommodation, the villa is superbly equipped, clean, spacious with beautiful views. The well kept pool made our holiday as the kids lived in it and again it is really well equipped wit he ought sun lingers for everyone! The only down side was that we didn't book two weeks!

We'll definitely be returning next year.
