The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is the fifth largest Greek island and arguably one of the most beautiful. World class, white beaches with azure waters, endless sun drenched olive groves and vineyards set against a back drop of majestic mountains. This scenery coupled with the delightful hospitality and charm of the Kefalonians sets Kefalonia apart from other Greek Islands. The local organic produce and Robola wines will also become a memorable ingredient of your holiday.
There is a slow pace on the island, a 'Manyana' feel but without the same sense of urgency! Unwinding is what a holiday in Kefalonia is all about. You will not want to remove your rose tinted glasses when you leave.
There are numerous activities and excursions on Kefalonia and we would be delighted to suggest something to suit your interests. Part of our service is to assist you with the pre planning of your holiday so everything runs smoothly. Otherwise, leave it to the Gods on your arrival. There are plenty here!
The nearby islands of Ithaca, Lefkada, Meganissi and Zakynthos are all accessible on day excursions. Ithaca is highly recommended.
The sleepy village of Klismata and the nearby villages of Korianna and Spartia in the South of Kefalonia are the quintessential Greek villages. There is no trace of tourist shops here, just the local old lady offering you grapes as you walk past and Stavros in his little mini mart down the track selling you his home grown vegetables and local produce. And maybe offering you the odd Ouzo. This is the 'real' Greece of a bygone era, for better or worse!
Within 10 minutes drive you can access 5 or 6 local sandy beaches (many secluded for naturist bathing), the nearest being a 1.5 km walk. The walk is fine going down but you need a strong constitution and a big water bottle coming back!
A four wheel drive is recommended in the area so you can access local agricultural tracks to reach the lovely beach of Avithos with it's beach bar, and two excellent tavernas. However, access is also easy with a conventional vehicle it just takes an extra five minutes.
If you love walking this is also the place for you. So many tracks adorn the area. But, if you like lying in the sun, reading, relaxing and being pampered in complete seclusion and tranquility, cocktail in hand, Villa Kalliste is definitely the villa for you!

"A Memorable Expreience"
Villa Kalliste is a beautiful house located in a beautiful setting. We couldn't have hoped for more in during our stay there. The cost is less than you might expect for such an experience. This would be an ideal destination for honeymooners, families and groups of friends. Denise and Vin are warm and inviting hosts.

We recently returned to the States after a week stay at Villa Kalliste. What a fantastic place. The property was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was spacious enough for 4 couples, yet plenty of space to gather all together. The views sitting out back were breathtaking.
The owners, Denise and Vince, were so nice and provided us with suggestions for activities throughout the week if we wanted to venture away from the beautiful villa. The property was so nicely manicured and the property caretakers, Sara and Paul took such care of the place.
We especially liked having our own personal chef-Viva!! Every meal was so delicious and it was so nice not having to worry about shopping, cooking and clean-up.
Our week at Villa Kalliste was so perfect and we look forward to the day we can return.

The owners of this property, Denise and Vin, personally met us at the airport and right away we knew we were in for a special week. The Villa is absolutely stunning with great views, great indoor and outdoor living spaces and everything you need to call home. Meticulously maintained by great staff who are always on call, combined with the personal service offered by the owners really makes this Villa a stand out. The only problem is you don't want to leave it - and there is so much to see on the island. The Villa is in a great location, and is very private and quiet. I would highly recommend Villa Kalliste to everyone.
