Start your day with breakfast soaking in this Kefallonian ideal on a luxurious balcony with panoramic views of the Ionian sea and mountains.
Maybe a leisurely swim in the infinity pool situated in our well maintained, quiet, secluded grounds, surrounded with many trees bearing fruits of the Mediterranean.
A spacious, large, private, three bedroom villa is within a short walk to the lovely sandy Avithos beach, or eat out and enjoy the flavors of Kefalonia in one of the nearby local tavernas.In the evenings sitting in the balconies under the stars listening the gentle roll of the waves from the nearby beach.
Villa Polymnia is equipped with all modern conveniences and the garden houses a large barbeque if your desire is to cook alfresco?
Make the most of the Ionian summer and treat yourself to a holiday you will love.
The villa has once weekly maid service and the pool and garden are fully maintained.

Home away from home!
Property is set in the middle of large garden. The patio on one side faces the sea and onto the island of Zante and on the other side the large swimming pool and the garden.The villa itself is built to a very high standard, well maintained and clean. The garden has plenty of fruit trees. To reach the villa from the airport, you will pass orange as well as olive groves. A car is definitely recommended as to reach the nearest shop, although not far, will feel like an eternity in the heat. Any part of island is easily accessible from the villa. Nearby beaches are clean and sandy. Chris in London as well as Lorna in Greece were both very helpful. The people of Kefalonia are very polite and helpful. Kefalonia is a very clean island. We definitely had a very relaxing holiday -in fact, I did not want to come back!
We first stayed at Villa Polymnia 4 years ago. It ticked all of our boxes for a perfect holiday and we have struggled to find anywhere else comparable, which is why we decided to visit again this year.
The Villa is clean and well maintained. There is a lovely Couple who are always on hand to answer questions and provide support if needed.
Villa Ploymnia has stunning views and is situated in a very peaceful setting. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony, soaking in the natural beauty of the surroundings. The efficient air-conditioning and well maintained swimming pool were also much appreciated whenever we needed to cool down in the heat of the day.
Avithos beach is just 5 minutes drive away, it is ideal for families and doesn't get too crowded. The beach is sandy and has umbrellas for hire, there is a beach bar which offers snacks and food.
Our favourite place to visit was Argostoli. The food there is all homemade and simply delicious with the best desserts we have found on the island found at a shop called Premier.
The Acropolis restaurant is 5 minutes away from Villa Polymnia, it has a good menu and a friendly atmosphere.
Our favourite days out exploring on Kefalonia included Melissani Lake and Drogarati Cave. An additional highlight this year was the opportunity to see loggerhead Turtles close at hand in at the Argostoli harbour.
We would highly recommend Villa Polymnia and would love to come back again in the future.

Sarah and Matts honeymoon
We had a great honeymoon in this beautiful villa with the fantastic sea views & quiet & peacful surroundings.
The villa was well equiped with all the essentials you could need.
The information pack was very helpful & handly to have.
Thank you Chris for being helpful & welcoming & for suggesting the "Avithos" taverna restaurant where we had two very nice meals overseeing an amazing view and also at reasonable prices.
We definitely picked the right place for our honeymoon not just this beautiful island but also this perfect villa!!!
We will certainly recommend this place to our family & friends!!!
Thanks again for making our honeymoon a memorable one!!!
Perfect location and pool
Our family loved the pool, it was just perfect. Big enough to swim in, and the water temperature just right. The villa had a fantastic terrace, which offered some shade most if the day, and a great place to eat. There were lovely sea views, and a rocky path directly down to the beach which was wonderful. The villa was so relaxing that we rarely left it, and enjoyed beautiful summer evenings on the terrace.
Summer Holiday 2011
We had a lovely two week holiday here in August 2011. On arrival we found the villa to be very clean, spacious and comfortable.The owner and property management company were friendly and helpful.The surrounding gardens
were extensive and well maintained affording privacy and great views. Our two teenage boys found the pool fantastic.The villa was situated in an ideal location to explore the rest of the island and was within walking distanceof tavernas and a lovely safe beach.The villa exceeded our expectations and I would without hesitation recommend this villa to friends and family for a summer holiday.
a quiet nest on a paradise island.
We had a wonderful staying at Villa Polymnia.
The villa is a high level of privacy and quietitude being enclosed within fields, distant from other villas.
the villa is provided with all you need. Christos is very kind in order to provide on additional needs (like a high chair for my 13 months son, a homogeniser mixer), the electrodomestics are very good too like Miele washer, Bosh dishwasher, and a german dryer. I was not able to start-up SAT-TV but there were devices for music, DVD, mp4, DVB.
The internal area guarrantees spaces for a family being organised in two branches (2 bedrooms and one toilet; one large bedroom and a large toilet with tub and hot tub), a common area very large and a small kitchen. Large are the external areas though the Island is windy so not easeable to eath there.
the external places are generally well mantained (fruits tree, oleanders, palms, roses, fontains, garden and pool) and a team of gardener, pool man, maid are coming on a regular basis,.. somethimes wasting your privacy indeed.
The pool is enlighten till 23:30, there was no way to let it stay longer,
There is the small quiet Saint Helis beach just 5 minutes driving away.
The place is served with tavernas and supermarket just 3 minutes away.
That was exactly what we were looking for and we are just considering coming back again on September.
