"Magical location - beautiful house."
We have just returned from the most wonderful holiday at Villa Bolios in Kefalonia. The house has be beautifully restored keeping all the old original character but using the most modern and high-quality fittings and utilities.
The house is in the most peaceful and beautiful position in Northern Kefalonia. At night the only noise you can hear are the owls in the surrounding trees and the distant sound of goat bells ringing.
Breakfast on the terrace in the morning is magical as you watch the sun-rise over neighbouring Ithaki and watch the butterflies playing in the garden.
The owners of the villa are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, we have left as friends.
I would highly recommend the villa for couples looking for a romantic escape, or for those with children looking for a home away from home.
This is Greece.
Afto einai Ellada!!
