Perfect location for exploring the beautiful island with lovely views and so close to airport!
We booked this conveniently located villa to celebrate a 60th birthday with family and friends and the amenities did not disappoint. Pool, BBQ, multiple balconies to enjoy the view from the hillside (one plane spotter among us was in 7th heaven as there were even binoculars available to view the planes arriving at the airport - or watch the birds of prey and swallows), games, wifi and CD player and owner Steve 5 mins away for local knowledge (Lidl supermarket on way to Argostoli, local bar with Sky tv for the rugby Lions tour). Maid service twice a week and beach towels supplied by the villa! Essential to hire a car as it is in a small village and 10 mins drive from one of the loveliest sandy beaches on the island (Avithos - with 2 excellent tavernas) and make sure one driver is bold enough to manage the very steep drive down to the villa. Airport is 5 mins away which did not spoil the tranquility but meant longer by the pool on the last day! Kitchens top and bottom of the 3 storey villa were a good idea - breakfast at the top with early morning views and couple sleeping in the "boudoir" on ground floor were undisturbed (open plan bedroom/games room/kitchen with voile curtains sectioning off bedroom might not suit honeymooners but our sun worshipper loved the 5 sec walk to the poolside!) but lower kitchen great for preparing evening meals and BBQ. Neighbours requested us to be quiet one night when we were still up after midnight talking by the pool and were not happy about parking our car near their villas/in front of their gates, but otherwise peace only disturbed by the Sunday afternoon drummer a few villas along. This was my 3rd visit to Kefalonia and still didn't manage to explore all corners of the island - plenty to do and lots of spectacular beaches as well as the tourist sights - turtles in the harbour, Melissani lake, Assos village (a greek Portmerion), Einos mountain and national park (amazing views), and last but not least, the many vineyards and wineries - the local wine is individual to the island (Robbola grape) and really good... (forget Retsina). Have already recommended the villa, location and island to friends and would definitely re-book - Steve was a pleasant, informative host who was never intrusive and the villa had everything you could want and was presented in excellent condition (including coffee grinder and beans for my 'barrista' daughter). Just expect when showering to wet the whole bathroom! (Of which there are 4) and possibly to adopt a cat and her kittens who entertained us most of the fortnight once they knew we were a soft touch and would leave out food for them.... One of the best greek holidays we have had. Many thanks, Steve and Jan. …

The house is outstanding. The garden, patio and pool areas are fabulous. The interior is nicely decorated and maintained, very comfortable. Really peaceful and beautiful villa. Well organized and professionally managed. Our family had a great time, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We enjoyed the island. Gorgeous landscapes and beaches all over.
Eleanor is tremendously responsive, very polite and friendly.
