“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 !!!

3 bedroom villa in peaceful location near Sami
Nothing has been overlooked in this wonderful home
Everything that one could need for a relaxing holiday is here at Villa de Vico.
Very comfortable in every aspect as well as keeping traditional features such as the little house in the garden with the washing machine, deckchairs and housekeeping things stored. Fruit and nut trees in the garden for us to gather made a wonderful experience. A lovely traditional village setting but a stones throw from the more touristic Sami for everyday needs suited us admirably. We found the villa to be very well equipped and nothing overlooked, what more could we have asked for........ thing! …
Anthoula's 3-Bedroom Apartment
Stunning sea views
Six of us took a girlie holiday here in October. The setting is absolutely stunning & as promised there was sea views from every bedroom. The gardens were immaculately kept & had plenty of sunbeds for us all to use. Just through the garden gate was a pretty beach which usually ad only us on it which was heaven & a very short walk took you to a slightly larger beach where you could hire sunbed & get food & drink from the beach bar.
The apartment was lovely although there is only one bathroom with shower, the other is just a toilet & sink, which with six women as you can imagine was a challenge. The kitchen was basic & needed re-stocking with enough cutlery,plates & dishes to cater for 6. Also as advertised there is no washing machine, although the owners son did offer his mother's services
The owner & her son were lovely, extremely helpful. We had a wonderful holiday in Kefalonia & would definitely return to this apartment again. …

Villa Kefalos of Lithos Villas
Villa Kefalos is a lovely, peaceful place for a holiday.
We spent 2 weeks at Villa Kefalos. The villa is in a peaceful location with a view of the coast and mountains. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Haris replied quickly to the questions we asked him via e-mail, and called round to sort out any problems, which were only minor ones.
Haris was kind enough to leave us food and wine for our arrival, and we had another edible treat during our stay. He was helpful in suggesting places to visit. We travelled a lot during our stay, sightseeing most of the island. We found the Villa Kefalos a lovely place to come home to.
We hope to return before too long.
Villa Hemera, Outstanding Villa w/ Private Pool, easy access, close to amenities
Above and Beyond!
Our stay at Villa Hemera was all round fantastic! Before travelling we contacted the villa owner Panagiotis who was so so kind and helpful provided us with answers to all our questions and recommendations of what to do this time of year.
When we arrived at the town he collected is from the local supermarket and drove us and toured the villa with us. It was truly beautiful and so well kept with a maid provided, clean towels and sheets every other day, and even a bottle of local wine and a welcome pack full of lovely stuff.
The island was also beautiful and easy to access all the hotspots with a car.
All round it was a lovely trip and stay at Villa Hemera made even better by the exceptional service from Panagiotis and everyone who was involved in upkeeping such a lovely property! …
We were a party of 2 couples and we decided to visit Kefallonia island for 4 days.
After a friend recommended this place to stay, we managed to book it for 4 nights.
When we got there, we were amazed by the setup of the whole place. It is located just above one of the most beautiful beaches “Makris Yalos” where you can go from a path in the garden directly to the beach (2 min walking) like it is its private beach.
The garden also includes a spacious swimming pool with one of the best sea-view in the island.
We chilled out so much in this beautiful garden that we missed many of the places of Kefallonia that we had arranged to visit, and we never regretted it.
Actually this persueded us to come back again.
On the other side of the villa there is a small forrest and out of nowhere there is an open basketball court where you can do all your sports you need.
The villa inside is fulle equipped with beatiful decoration.
Everything was so perfect that we did not want to leave this paradise..
Jealous of the owner of this gateaway!!
We ll visit it again within this summer to create more memorable moments. …
