We are not here just to rent you one of our villas. We want to help you have the best possible holiday. We visit daily to clean the pool and tend the gardens, giving you a regular and easy opportunity to ask questions and get some advice. We live close by, so can be very accessible if you need anything. At our home, we hold a weekly table d'hôtes evening to offer you a chance to try authentic home-made Greek and French cuisine.
We can use our local knowledge to get the best possible rates at a local car-hire company. We can suggest local taverns where the food is authentic, give advice on where to go and what to see. Indeed if you wish, for a supplementary charge, we can provide a welcome pack, with some local produce so you can swim and have lunch by the pool, immediately on arrival.
Finally, our welcome extends to meeting you at the airport, helping you to collect your car (or hiring one if you have not organized it already.) and leading you to your villa.

The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is considered to be one of the most beautiful islands in the whole of Greece. It is blessed with beautiful villages, friendly locals, delicious food and wine, and amazing beaches. Kefalonia took its name from the mythical Kefalos who was first ancestor of the race of the Kefalides in Attica and it was the man who was in fact the first King of Kefalonia giving it his name.
Kefalonia was once voted the tenth most beautiful place in the world and it's not difficult to see why. The beaches are as close to paradise as you can ever imagine and each little village seems prettier than the next. The island has no high-rise resorts, no noise, no pressure. This really is holiday heaven !
Karavados is located in an excellent position being only 10 kms from Argostoli (the capital) and 15 minutes' drive from the airport
However, a car is really recommended if you wish to explore this varied and wonderful island
Do not just stick to the well-famed names of Myrtos, Platis Gialos and the Xi beach. Do not hesitate to cross a few more kilometres and a new – not that well - known but the same beautiful Kefalonia wlll be revealed to you.
Typical villages, churches and hilltop monasteries.
Multi-hued stalactites and stalagmites fill the cool caverns of Drogarati and sunlight creates ever-changing colours on the subterranean lake of Melissani. Loggerhead turtles nest on the island's southern shores and rare birds flock to the Koutavos lagoon in Argostoli....
In fact, nobody can feel bored in Kefalonia !
