Class throughout

  • 5 of 5

Villa hits the spot in every way. Location ideal for seeing all parts of this beautiful Island. Ignore the proximity to Airport - low activity does not interfere with the enjoyment of the villa and its fine pool. Booking process simple and subsequent directions easy to follow. Followed owners tips for trips (including car rental) - disappointed with food at Kiana Restaurant (Stilts) and enjoyed our sunset experience at Koutoumis Paradise Restaurant locally, rather than the one suggested. Local beach fascinating as Turtles had laid eggs - we did not see them hatch but wish them well! Beach was clean and water safe plus the beer at the snack bar was good quality. Lassi - a very good source of eating establishments - but if you want fresh meat for the BBQ then use specialist shops or visit Carrefour where they have a selection neither AB or Lidl can match. Do not let the low cost of wines deter you - they are generally acceptable as is the house wine when eating out. Our party of 4 adults would definitely go again if we visit Kefalonia in the future.

The perfect place for a busy mother to relax

  • 5 of 5

// We have been staying at Villa Zephyros for our holidays since 2012. The first time we arrived at the villa we all said it was like coming to paradise.

The villa offers great value for money and is maintained and furnished to a high standard just like home from home.

We like the design of the villa which is on four floors with a roof terrace and garden terraces. It is situated in a secluded area but there are three nice beach bars within walking distance. The sandy beach near the villa is a small cove safe for swimming and playing on the beach. There are sun loungers and umbrellas for hire on the beach.

It is situated near the far end of the runway but there are not many planes and the children love to watch the the planes landing from the roof.

We have been on great day trips to Ithaka, Lixouri, Fiskardo, Zakinthos and many more. We all love Argostoli, the main town which is about 10 minutes in the car. It is a great place for adults and children alike especially for watching the huge water turtles by the sea front and it is lively in the evenings.

The villa is especially nice for relaxing with friends by the pool.

We are looking forward to going back again next year, we are glad we found it./
