“Best holiday ever!” This has literally been our best holiday ever, so relaxing and a fabulous villa, we couldn’t have asked for more and the sea views from the villa are absolutely stunning. For April the weather was surprisingly hot so we were delighted. The villa is in a great location, lovely and quiet but just ten minutes’ drive from the town of Argostoli, with some fantastic shops and restaurants. The owners, Sharon and Leigh, had given us some wonderful tips about where to do the best shopping, fresh meat and fish from the market and vegetables from the market stalls in Argoostoli, etc.. We are real foodies and they obviously share our passion for cooking. The kitchen has everything you could possible need, and the BBQ in the garden is just brilliant.
Our teenage boys enjoyed exploring the beach on their own, so they didn’t have to spend every waking moment with us and the locals are so friendly, many speak English and are happy to help.
Even though it was a little early on in the season we did swim in the beautiful pool, and soaked up the sun on the terrace, it was bliss! The upper terrace that leads off the kitchen and living area is the ultimate place for waking up with a coffee, it is bathed in sun first thing in the morning, then offers a shadier spot later on in the day.
There is really nothing negative we could say about it all, the villa is immaculate, was as clean as could be and perfectly equipped. We had honestly not expected as many home comforts.
Sharon and Leigh, thanks for everything, we will be back !!!

“A truly relaxing place to stay” My husband, my teenage daughter and I stayed at the villa Isadora for a week in mid August. The location was excellent as it was very peaceful. There are some excellent restaurants fairly nearby and a small sandy cove for swimming. We spent many days exploring the local area and found all the beaches to be clean with crystal clear water.
The villa was very spacious and was cool even without the air conditioner. The kitchen was a good size with marble tops. The bedrooms were spacious and each had an en suite.
Dimitri,who looks after the villa was there to welcome us with a bottle of wine. He was very helpful and informative. We would love to return oneday.
“We can not wait to go back!” We can not recommend Stavros Villa enough... it was probably the best place we've ever stayed and can not wait to go back next year.
The house itself is beautiful with so many trinkets and interesting items to look at, you'll feel like you're in a museum! The pool area is lovely, as are the gardens and different outside seating areas.
Stavros and Athina were such excellent hosts and helped us so much throughout our stay, it wouldn't have been the same without them!
We hired a moped from Fiskardo (about 20 minutes away) for around €20 per day which is excellent and in our opinion, the best way to explore the island.
We enjoyed the restaurants and bars in Fiskardo a lot however we loved the Ionio restaurant in Touliata (a 10-15 minute walk from the house)... traditional Greek dishes, lovely setting, friendly service and excellent value for money. We ate here about every other night!
“All we could wish and more than we expected” We stayed in apartment 11 and enjoyed it very much. High quality apartment: good beds, enough space, wonderful view over the sea. Lovely swimming pool and pool bar (where you have a wifi connection). Beautiful garden. Excellent cleaning of the apartment. And most of all: Dionyssos, Rosa and Joy are very hospitable and very, very nice. Their wonderful barbecue night brings back the best of memories.
Dionyssos picked us up at the airport in his taxi, so we did not have any trouble finding the apartment. It is only 15-20 minutes from the airport. We rented a car for the two weeks of our stay (Joy made the arrangements for that) - and you do need a car. That is, if you want to see much of the beautiful island.
“Wonderful stay!” We stayed at Nerissa Apartments for a second time this summer, and again were not disappointed. The especially warm welcome by Dimitris and Elena, the wonderful food upon arrival, clean and comfy 2-bedroom apartment with the quietest possible airco's, and great location not far from a very child-friendly beach, make Nerissa one of our favourite places to stay for the summer holidays. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Great location , lovely villa
This was a great find . We have visited Kefalonia several times before and know the island fairly well.
This is a newly completed villa in 2018 and is just a few minutes drive to Kaminia and Mounda beach in the south west just a few minutes away from the town of Skala .
It sits in group of three , with Villa Luna being well set back from the road completely private and quiet behind private electronic security gates .
Inside it is beautifully designed with modern good quality furniture .
There are 3 great bedrooms each with ensuite , the upstairs having balconies one with great views.
The open plan lounge and kitchen is fully equipped great TV With Sky and Netflix ( was in Greek so should have asked Panos or Theo to change to ? English ) , great wi fi.
Pool area was nice but a bit narrow , I think would have been good to widen and be more " generous " with the paved space . It is a comment rather than a criticism .
Plenty of sun loungers and space to relax and a small sitting area to have coffe in the morning and catch up in the evening .
Might be nice to have outside dining area??
Pool was " natural " sealed , water quality great didn't seem to be any chlorine so nice for swimming and faced south so sun all day from morning to sunset .
Nice to sit out in the evening.
It's in the process of being landscaped and growing and nearly there
Beaches on doorstep large sandy and not very many people at all . The ones there based around sunumbrellas from the two tavernas , rest no people and huge beach .
Great for kids gentle beach .
Taverna on the beach Anemos was great .
Arriving at the villa we met Theo at the garage .. It's easy .. It's the only garage and is just before you get to Skala. The villa is 2 mins away .
We arrived late and had asked for welcome pack which was generous and tasty .
All our email questions and booking with Panos was easy he is a great host , we even got an text prior to arrival via the website so we could contact him easily .
Would recommend and would definitely stay again …
Maniata Holiday Apartments #4
Clean, well appointed apartment in a beautiful location.
The apartment is situated in a quiet village a few miles from Fiskardo. The tranquil beach at Dafnoudi is a few minutes drive away. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Anna, the owner, was pleasant and helpful. All in all it was the perfect place for us to stay and we will look forward to returning next year. Highly recommended. …
Villa Pelagia, Kefalonia
The villa is beautiful and the views are fabulous but the villa is very hard to find, some signs on the road would be a great help, as we got lost several times in the dark. …
Dreams Beach Apartments Katelios
Dreams is a comfortable small apartment in an excellent peaceful location.
The apartment is located 2 minutes walk from a very good beach and 10 minutes walk from the resort of Katelios. The beach is superb for swimming, relaxing in the sun and views. Katelios is a beautiful, tranquil resort.
The small apartment is quite adequate for 2 people. It has great attention from the cleanerand a fine little balcony with views of the sea. It could do with a frying pan and toaster but that is a quibble.
The Dreams bar/restaurant is very good for meals, snacks and drinks and the staff are friendly and helpful …
Glorious location with everything you need for a great holiday
Beautiful, quiet location with wonderful views. So easy to stay, with a fully stocked fridge and a fabulous home-cooked meal we could concentrate on relaxing from the first moment. Just a 20 minute walk to the village and a lovely restaurant, mini-markets and cafe/bars, plus a secluded beach not far away. Not far from the airport, but you don't notice any noise. And just a short trip to the island's main town and its lovely harbour area. We really loved our stay. …
