About the home
Our villa, Thimari, is now available. Our luxurious villa is made of stone with private pools, separated by an old traditional house of Kefalonia. The old house has an oven made of stone and a traditional wine maker for everyone who wants to enjoy the agricultural life.
The unique location of the villas can give you the time and pleasure of relaxing in front of the magnificent view to the Ionian sea. Surrounded by olive trees and cypress trees but within easy reach of local shops, taverns, beaches and the famous village Fiscardo, the villa can be your private holiday destination. The warm and stunning sunset is really worth seeing from the villas and something you will never forget.
A welcome pack with all the essentials for the first day is waiting for you as a gift from us.

I actually thought I had already posted this review, but must have been on a different website!
My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Villa Thimari for a week in July.
We're never sure when booking these places that look fantastic, in case we get there and the photo's are like 10 years old! We needn't have worried however. First impressions were excellent on approaching the villa and once through the door things just got better and better. We were welcomed by Spiros, and what a lovely warm welcome it was. I'm a bit of a clean freak, and the villa was spotless, courtesy of Mrs Spiros and her lovely husband. All the rooms were decorated beautifully and the furniture was all of very high quality.
We quickly went outside to explore the terrace and pool area and the sheer beauty and peace and quiet took our breath away. The only sound is of the crickets calling to each other in the trees and for us this was just perfect. Although Villa Elia is next door, there is no issue with privacy.
We only encountered one problem while we were there and that was when the air conditioning broke on the second night. My husband telephoned Spiros, who arrived soon afterwards, and the matter was remedied quickly and with excellent customer service.
A couple of days into our holiday Spiros arrived with a homemade mousakka from his wife, which was very unexpected and a lovely gesture - very tasty too!
The villa was very well equipped and had everything we needed and the beds were the comfiest I have ever slept in in Greece, and we have been to a lot of nice places in Greece (one tiny thing, maybe a choice of pillows would have been nice, as all the pillows were very plump - fine for me, but not my husband, and perhaps we shoud have asked, and I'm sure it would have been sorted).
A car is essential as the villa is off the beaten track, but a 5 minute drive away is Maganos where there are a couple of supermarkets and a nice taverna. A little further on, on the road to Fiskardo, is Anti Pata, with 2 more lovely taverna's - great pizza at The Old Stone House (I think that's right) and then another 5 mins to the gorgeous port of Fiskardo. Lots of trendy restaurants and bars and little boutiques here, but a bit more expensive.
All in all this was one of our favourite holidays ever and we hope to return very soon. Would recommend to anyone looking for a total chilled out relaxing break. Paradise. And thank you to Spiros and Mrs Spiros, Gerry and Georgia.

We have just returned from a relaxing week at the Villa Thimari and can't wait to go back. The spectacular views over the sea below and down the north west side of the island from the various pretty terraces and balconies, all comfortably furnished, combined with the pool and pretty gardens made the villa an idyllic retreat. Inside the villa is contemporary and stylish, pristine and comfortable with a hint of luxury and with the added benefit of free wifi. The nearest tavernas shops and beaches are all within a couple of miles, which was convenient but also suited our requirement for a bit of quiet seclusion. We visited lots of beautiful places including Fiskardo and Myrtos but nearby Assos was our favourite. The owners and their family were charming, welcoming us warmly on arrival, providing a gift of groceries, guiding us on places of interest and encouraging us to stay and make full use of the villa on our last day to coincide with our late flight back. We are now looking for an opportunity to return with the wider family and rent both villas at some point in the near future.
