What a fantastic holiday, lovely villa, very clean, everthing you could want. Boat trip to Ithaca was a fab day out. Also hired a speed boat for the day, great fun. Weather fantastic, the 2 weeks went so quickly, will have to come again. Helen & Barry, Cholderton, July 2012.
We've had a wonderful time in Kefalonia staying at Villa Jasmine. We came here to get married and the villa was a perfect base. Very lovely location for all the sights on the island. Obelisk was great for a takeaway followed by a cake from the bakery. Views are fabulous from the villa and the villa had everything we needed. Really appreciated the welcome pack. …..Nicola & David, Stockton on Tees July 2012
Our 2nd visit to Villa Jasmine, another wonderful holiday, pity we were only here for a week. The villa once again was the perfect location and found it difficult to drag ourselves away from the peaceful sunsets and pool. Hope to come back for longer next time…….Karen & Alf, Hull August 2012

This has been our 3rd visit to Villa Jasmine & Kefalonia.As usual our stay at the villa has been fantastic. As soon as you step through the door it feels like your home for the next 2 weeks.We have had 2 weeks of great weather, getting hotter each day. Tried Casa Grec, recommended by a previous guest, lived up to recommendation, spare ribs were to die for. Best supermarket is A&B they have the most choice and their roast chickens are fab. It's a beautiful island with lovely people. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Have a great holiday, …..Brenda & Nigel, Newcastle June 2011
This is our 5th time to Kefalonia but our 1st in a villa. Villa Jasmine has everything to make a perfect holiday. It is in a lovely area and the village is just so nice. We love Avithos Beach and the 2 restaurants there are excellent. We will return to this villa and recommend to all…… Avril & Chris, Sale Cheshire June 2011.
Villa Jasmine was everything and more with beautiful views and creature comforts. Argostoli is a must visit for their fruit & veg markets and the turtles in the bay. We found all restaurants were lovely…… Pallavi, Cheam Surrey July 2011
Fantastic Villa views pool and weather. Went to see turtles in Argostoli many times. Byrons is great for watching the planes land and take off. Food is lovely. Paradise at airport is lovely for watching the sunset. Very good food and service…….Karen & Paul, Stourbridge August 2011
Fabulous 2 weeks, hot & sunny every day. Loved Avithos beach as we got to swim with the turtles. So many places to see and things to do. We hired a boat at Katelios and discovered coves where we were the only persons on the beach. Must see are Myrtos, Assos and Messalini Caves. Ann & Sam Beckenham August 2011
We have absolutely loved our stay at Villa Jasmine and have taken full advantage of the superb facilities here. We came away to relax and relax we have. Made good use of the BBQ which cooks really well. …….Lindsay and Paul, Macclesfield Sept 2011.
What a lovely place to spend our honeymoon. Kefalonia is beautiful, the villa served us well. Excellent, we have spent lazy days by the pool with everything to hand, but also days out. Avithos is great and only 10 minutes away. The villa feels like it is only 10 to 15 minutes away from everything, very well situated.

Congratulations on putting such a high standard package together.The villa notes in the house helped a lot too.We absolutely loved kefalonia - perfect week for us. The Hazrati family London May 2008
We had a lovely time here. Beautiful villa to match the beautiful view. Janet & Cathy, Bolton le Sands, June 08
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Jasmine. It was everything that we hoped for and more. There has been much thought even down to the games for a rainy day - should there be one. The fittings and furnishings are first rate especially the kitchen which is set up for "Ready, Steady, Cook"! Not that we stopped in during the evening; there are too many taverna/restaurants within easy reach. It was particularly pleasant to come back at night and have coffee on the upstairs balcony looking out towards the lights of Argostoli and the starry sky above. Magical. Joan and John Makinson" Morcambe,June 2008
We had A LOVELY holiday, the villa was beautifully clean and tidy, and a welcome pack waiting was very useful, a great base, to explore the island from, very comfortable. We had 2 earthquakes during our stay, SCARY!! The Spice family Hampshire July 08
What a beautiful Villa. we have had a lovely time here. The wedding went well and all the guests loved Kefalonia. The Ross family - Surbiton July 08
I wanted to write to you on behalf of everyone I went on holiday with and thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful Greek isle home.We had an absolutely amazing time and I must admit the house was far above our expectations. It was simply perfect. Everything that we could have wished for and more was there.

Beautiful villa in tranquil surroundings made for a thoroughly relaxing holiday. David & Julie, Hook, E. Yorkshire. Sept 08
Lovely villa, very comfortable and set in lovely surroundings. Great to receive the welcome pack which included more than expected. Particularly loved it when sheep herded into field opposite. Their bells made us wonder if we were in Austria. We envy your choice of village and great views. Kate Smith, Leeds, Sept 08
What a beautiful villa, everything we could have wished for. We have been to Kefalonia 8 times and always stayed in self catering apartments - this has been a piece of luxury, decor is stunning. Hope to be back one day. Thank you for a memorable holiday. Dave & Freda Parr, Portsmouth. October 08

The Ionian Islands region
The archpeligo of 11 islands , large and small, strung out along the west coast of mainland Greece are known as the Ionian Islands. The 6 large ones are Zante, Ithaca, Corfu, Lefkada, Paxoi and the largest is Kefalonia and the small ones are Anti Paxoi ,Ereikousa, Mathraki, Othonoi, Meganisi and the Strofades. The history of these islands goes back millenia known from the lines of Homer's Odyssey.
These islands , with their wonderful natural environment, abundant water, fascinating towns and villages, mild climate, superb beaches, crystal clear seas and archaeological sites are like jewels in the Ionian sea.
Kefalonia is an island that is off the beaten path and enthusiastically loved by most that visit. It is the largest of the Ionian Islands and features many interesting archaeological sites, as well as geological phenomena and offers more than just stunning beaches and picturesque villages. The southern part of the island, called Livathos is home to the capital city, the airport and many of the most fantastic beaches and cultural sights. Villa Jasmine has an ideal location. Being only ten minutes by car from either the capital city of Argostoli or the island airport (EFL) makes it a very covenient location . The village of Lakithra sits on the top of a hill which gives the villa absolutely amazing views from its elevated position and balconies. Lakithra itself is home to some great restaurants, a really good bakery and a few shops.
Local activities diving, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, wind-surfing, water skiing, paragliding. Ten pin bowling is also available in the nearby village of Travilata.

"A wonderful peaceful place to recharge your batteries."
This was our first holiday without the children. We adored the villa but kept thinking how the children would have loved it as well, especially the pool! The villa was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious with everything you could possibly need and more. The air conditioning was most welcome at night as were the mosquito screens on the doors and windows. Perfectly located for travelling around the whole of the island which is exactly what we did. Thank you to Pam, Ivor and Ken for their local knowledge and of course to John and Linda for sharing their lovely home.

"Beautiful Villa & Beautiful Island"
Just got back from a week's stay in Villa Jasmine, Kefalonia. Arrived in the evening to a beautiful villa that we found hard to prize ourselves away from! The villa is very clean and well equipped, extremely spacious with a very good sized pool. We spent the week exploring the island and days at the villa. It is the most relaxing holiday we have been on and we could have stayed a lot longer! We hope to come back someday soon!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back some time in the future.

"What a gem!!"
We loved just about everything about Villa Jasmine. The location is very peaceful with beautiful views across to Argostoli Bay and the mountains.
Very easy to get around the Island by car with no shortage of beautiful places to visit .
It was difficult for us to leave the villa as the pool and garden were perfect for lounging around and chilling out.
A few nice tavernas within walking distance.
All in all, a great place to holiday. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future

"A wonderful Villa on a fantastic island...magical."
Villa Jasmine is a fantastic base to come back to after a day of exploring a fanscinating island. Location-wise it is perfect if you want a quiet (but plenty of authentic Greek restaurants/bars walkable) area within touching distance of the larger more touristy areas like Lassi and Argostoli. You do need a car if you stay here but it's highly advisable to hire a car full stop as there's gems to see all across the island. The villa has air-con throughout, we had food ready for us on arrival, great views over the seas and lovely small pool to cool off in. The people who both own and service the apartment can't do enough for you and it makes you feel very at home instantly. Only smal thing i would add would be WiFi as other similiar apartments seemed to have it available but not really a massive deal. Things to see in Kefalonia that you MUST see are:
- Melissiani Cave
- Assos (top spot - get a view of Mirtos on the way!)
- VIews from Mount Ainos (1,630m). We had a 1lt Kia Picanto and made it so anyone can!!
Internet access is something we have been considering and hope to be able to provide at a nominal cost from 2012 for anyone bringing their own laptop. However there is internet access available in the village for anyone who does not bring their own computer and there are also wi fi hotspots in the local area.
