About Caroline Kane

Having lived on the island of Spetses for 2 years in my twenties, I returned to Greece in 2012, fell hook, line and sinker for Kefalonia & decided to make the island a big part of my future and that of my family and friends by buying this beautiful villa.

Caroline Kane purchased this villa in 2012

Why Caroline Kane chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

Quite simply, the location & views are unbeatable, the villa spacious, modern and so well-appointed....... A true Infinity pool is the icing on the cake & I will never tire of the endless azure of the Ionian Sea!

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location! Peace, beauty and privacy without isolation. The villa lies within a traditional village, so when the summer visitors have all gone life continues as normal. For me, my family & groups of friends, the villa has it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Magical week that flew by far too fast! Villa was perfect and a view we spent many an hour gazing at. Will be back one day!

View is what this villa is all about

  • 4 of 5

We were greeted on arrival by Sam who was very pleasant and helpful and set the mood for the stay and had the apartment shining for our arrival. The Villa is all about the view and it is stunning to say the least. We have stayed in Vlachata before and been more central for the village restaurants and bars which this villa in all honestly needed one of us to drive as it was simply to steep for the ladies coming back on an evening. The villa is spacious and more than adequate for a large family/group. I would though suggest that if 8 guests arrived it would prove to be problematic for all to be seated at the same time. The villa advertises TV however their was none either satellite or internet based for our stay not that it bothered us at all as we were to busy taking in the views!!!. The internet speed itself is adequate for emails, social media etc.. I would consider returning again in the future with all the family.

Owner's Response: You're right that the villa is all about the wonderful setting and views! I always advise clients to rent a car as the villa is situated on the mountainside and in any event such a large and beautiful island deserves exploring! There are actually 2 roads to approach the villa on foot or by car. The old road is very steep but there is a gentler, longer route using the new road and my family, friends and I walk to restaurants using both ways if we don't want to drive. There is seating for 8 people to eat at the table on the deck and for 8 people to sit on the verandah as well as at the indoor dining table. There are also 8 sunloungers and plenty of space to move them around to whatever position suits. There is a TV which, as stated in my description, is for watching DVD's & there is a good selection of those. Unfortunately there is no way to get SKY in Greece except by card-sharing which is not legal. I will however be updating the TV to a digital one shortly, now that Greek TV has gone digital. This will offer some free international channels as well as Greek TV. It is of course possible to stream a certain amount of TV within the massive 3 GB internet daily limit provided free of charge, should clients so wish. I'm delighted you found the villa relaxing and enjoyed the views so much.

Off the beaten track with magnificent views!

  • 4 of 5

Six of us recently had the pleasure of staying at this lovely villa with magnificent sea views. Whilst the location is on the outskirts of the village, in a quiet residential area, the only "disturbance" was the sound of the bells on the goats being brought down from the hillside each evening and grazing around the olive trees by the villa ... idyllic Greek village life!!

You definitely need a car here as the roads are narrow, windy and very steep in places. Be aware that there is only one designated parking space for the villa, if you are in a larger party.

The villa was clean and tidy with a welcome pack left for us on arrival. There is plenty of seating outside for 8 people. This includes sunloungers, comfy seating on verandah and a large table and chairs for your al fresco dining. There is also seating upstairs on the balcony. The pool was kept impeccably clean, with Keith the pool man coming every other day.

We did have a couple of minor glitches, however, these were promptly addressed by emailing Caroline (the owner). She responded almost immediately and between her and Sam, the villa manager, these were answered or resolved as they were able.

There are plenty of restaurants or tavernas to choose from. One of the best meals was at the Olive Lounge a five minute drive.away, however we didn't have one bad meal wherever we went on this beautiful uncommercialised island.

Thank you Caroline.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you found the villa so relaxing. Unfortunately the dishwasher broke down whilst you were there and despite ordering a new one the same day, it took a few days to get the replacement but that is now installed; I thank you for your understanding! On an island where everything must be imported, sadly we cannot always get things replaced within 24 hours as we can sometimes do in the UK but we do our very best! There is only 1 parking space on the property but it is perfectly possible to park a second car on the road immediately near the villa.

Be prepared to fall in love.

One of the best views on the island is from the edge of your own private infinity pool!!! What more do you need!!!

Had a truly amazing experience on this holiday, from the very start of my enquiry the owner, Caroline, responded to me lightning quick and was always so helpful and passionate about her villa and Kefalonia.

We arrived on a early flight and luckily Sam that looks after the villa was still there just finishing the cleaning so we were able to go straight in. She even stopped for 40 minutes to tell us all her favourite places and things to do on the island, then showed us round the local area and let us follow her to the supermarket so we could see the way. (Its very easy to find but what sensational service so lucky we got there before she left)

We arrived to a welcome pack with all the essentials, most importantly some cold beers in the fridge which was a lovely touch.

The villa was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable, I am not a man that copes well on little sleep so my travelling companions were relieved that I always slept soundly.

The pool was cleaned twice during our stay and was always crystal clear, it was very difficult to drag ourselves away. We did however enjoy a day on a local beach (well my travelling companions enjoyed, as I have an aversion to sand it was a day from hell for me but that's just me) We also did a day touring the island from top to bottom including the underground lakes near Sami and a lunch and hiring our own speedboat for the afternoon in Fiskado. To finish we made it just in time for the most perfect sunset of my life at Myrtos beach. Its a day I will never forget.

We had lots of barbeques by the pool as we did not want to leave, but still found time for a few dinners out. Our favourite was the Olive Lounge, where the owner made us feel like royalty, we bookended the evening with cocktails and had a fabulous dinner in between.

Sam cleaned the villa midweek providing fresh towels and sheets she even dropped off some sweet peppers from her garden at home which we stuffed with feta and chilli and barbequed .

A truly stress free experience, I cannot recommend it more!!!


Be prepared for some serious holiday blues once its all over!!!

Do yourself a favour if you cannot decide between a week or two weeks let me tell you make it two!! The week we spent just flew by and we were all trying to call home to work to see if we could get some extra leave and stay!!! THEY SAID NO :(

a wonderfull stay at a lovely spot on Kefalonia!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull stay at the villa Ionion Pelagos!!!The villa is beautifull and comfortable for 8 people. Although we lived mainly outside in the shade of the pergola, the house is well equiped and clean and the villa-management visited the villa during our stay for fresh bedding etc. Super!! The view from the inifinity pool is splendid and we loved the swallows and bats who flew over the pool to drink.

You need a car on Kefalonia, but the owner gave us good advice about car-rental, all very easy and comfortable. The villa is close to to several beautiful beaches and small towns. I highly recommend this villa to anyone considering staying there, and Iwe certainly hope to come back in the future!!!

Ultimate in views

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week's holiday. We were very happy in the villa and I would say the view from the pool is about the best I've seen. We were obviously concerned about the current situation in Greece but can honestly say we saw no sign of it on the island when we were there. The only queues we saw were at a cashpoint in Argostoli - about 12 people each time, so this could just have been the norm. The supermarket shelves were full and restaurants normal during our visit. Our favourite restaurant was the Olive Lounge which served the most delicious food.

The villa owner was so helpful prior to and during our stay. The pool lights weren't working when we arrived - a small thing but one email to the owner and it was immediately sorted.

As I write this at home in England, with grey skies and rain outside, how I wish I was back in the villa!

Owner's Response: Thank you! It was such a pleasure getting to know you as we went along. I always keep in touch with guests, in addition to having a manager on hand in Kefalonia, so it is no trouble to deal with anything my guests may need help with. In this case a lightning strike had fused the pool lights so we were able to get them up & running again very quickly. It is also reassuring to know, for future guests, that the current difficulties in Greece are having no impact on tourists in Kefalonia!
