“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!
“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.
“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 !!!

“Lovely villa, excellent location for exploring the island” Very friendly and helpful owner (Dimitris) met us on arrival and ensured we had all we needed, including free gifts of cake, ice cream and wine. The Villa is very well appointed, 2 large bedrooms upstairs, large kitchen / dining / living area downstairs, lovely built in BBQ outside and an amazing pool which the kids spent a lot of time in, when not on the beaches. The Villa was very well equipped and provided everything we needed from wifi to an expresso machine!
Our party consisted of two adults and two children, so the villa fitted our needs perfectly. However, the villa was advertised as having 3 bathrooms and sleeps 6, although there is just one bathroom + one WC and beds for only 4 people. Technically 2 people could sleep on the sofas, but the villa would be a bit of squeeze with 6 adults.
I would definitely consider returning to this lovely villa.

Sotiris villas Rhea, Selene
Immaculate, peaceful and relaxing villa
Our villa was perfect, couldn't fault it in any way. The beaches locally are stunning and there is everything you need within easy reach. It's a peaceful and relaxing location, and a perfect base to explore the rest of the island. The closeness to the airport makes it so easy for transfers to and from, but there is no real disruption from incoming and outgoing flights, just occasional, brief and faint engine noise.
The villa itself was immaculate - we loved it. Everyone was so friendly, warm and helpful and the pool, garden and inside were cleaned daily with minimal intrusion.
We loved the island and the villa and will definitely be returning for another relaxing and chilled out break. …
Villa Kantrillies With Private Pool,lakithra, Kefalonia, Ionian Islands
Wonderfully week in excellent villa
Communication was excellent prior to departure. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and we were met at the airport on arrival, despite our flight having a very late arrival time. They had left a lovely meal and lots of essential provisions, which were most welcome. The villa was also cleaned midweek and we were provided with fresh bedding and towels, as well as goodies from the locall bakery. The pool was cleaned every other day.
The villa is situated only five minutes from the airport but we were not at all disturbed by aircraft noise. It is located in a small village so if, like us, you enjoy the peace and quiet of being away from the crowds the villa is perfect. A car is essential to explore the beautiful island. There are a number of lovely beaches within a short distance and Argostoli is only a ten minute drive away.
We had a wonderful, relaxing time and would highly recommend to others. …
Perched on a commanding hilltop position, the Villa Themis is a modern but traditional, super equipped house. It is spacious, airy and a home to be respected. The 3 double bedrooms are a lovely size and are fully air conditioned. Access between floors is gained by a beautiful staircase leading to a minstrel overlooking the grand sitting room.
Having 2 bathrooms is a plus and the lounge and kitchen areas provide plenty of space for everyone to relax. There is a fabulous choice of large balconies with amazing views of the sea and the countryside but a fantastic backdrop of the whole Mount Ainos range is just breathtaking. A wonderful place to go back to after a day at the beach!
Villa Themis sits in a super location with no more than a comfortable 20-minute drive to either Argostoli and Lassi using the beautiful skyline road or to Lourdas following the beach road. And a 10-minute drive finds the beautiful beaches of Avithos, Helis, Pessada and Agios Thomas.
The choices are amazing but you soon find yourself wanting to return to the almost surreal surroundings of the Villa and the unbelievable views given to you by either of the upstairs bedroom balconies.
The fantastic Olive Grove and Byrons restaurants are within a 5-minute drive while a 2 min walk takes you to a super bakery. The villas immediate surroundings are typically Greek, surrounded by olive groves and so, so quiet.
Reliable maid service – friendly, efficient and nonintrusive. The swimming pool is a joy. It is both clean and well looked after by friendly Stefanos and has plenty of space for sunbathing.
George, the owner, is easy to contact both in the UK and while away and made sure our holiday ran smoothly from start to finish. Thank you for a wonderful stay! …
Seaside 6 sleeper house in Lixouri, Cephalonia
Alex, the host, was very helpful and friendly. She gave loads of advice as to what to do and where to go on this amazing island. The house was modern, clean and well presented, in a good location right by the sea and within easy walking distance of Lixouri centre and supermarket. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return. …
Casa de Calma
Good experience ! I recommend !
The house has all facilities you'll need , looks exactly like in the photo . The owner , Gregory, is nice and very hospitable host. No one disturb us, during our stay. Closed to the house is a cafe shop with a small market . The location is closed to Argostoli and to the beaches near side him: Makris Gialos , Platis Gialos and more.. Also if you'd like to see Myrtos beach , there is a nice road between the mountains, directly from the house . If you'll like to see the beaces from the west side of the Island, I will recomand you a location closed to Lixouri , for us was fitted ok, cause we wanted to visit this side of the island. …
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. …
