About Peter and Angela Stoney

Peter and Angela met in Stockport, UK and have been married for over 30 years. We have 2 grown up children and have visited many Greek islands during the last 25 years with and without the family. We kept being drawn back to Kefalonia as the most beautiful island of all those we visited and decided to buy some land and build our Villa in 2006. Villa Petra was completed in 2007 and we now offer Villa Petra for rental to give others the opportunity to experience its wonderful location and to enjoy the beauty of Kefalonia and all it has to offer visitors.

Peter and Angela Stoney purchased this villa in 2007

Why Peter and Angela Stoney chose Karavados

After spending one full week visiting many plots of land for sale on Kefalonia we decided that Karavados was the perfect location for a new Villa. We stood in an empty field and admired the fantastic views that would be available from the front looking down to the sea and mountains. We both agreed this was the spot and signed on the dotted line. Within 18 months the field had been transformed into what you can see today on the photos and we hope you will get the chance to experience the beauty of Villa Petra and Kefalonia.

What makes this villa unique

Fantastic Views; Great location; Edge of a typical Greek Village; Overlooks the sea, mountains and island of Zante in the distance; Close to the capital, Argostoli and to many great sandy beaches; Quiet, relaxing and peaceful; Modern luxurious interior with quality finishes and materials; Own private swimming pool; Restaurant close by; A quiet sandy cove, St. Thomas beach, just down the road; Local village supermarket 5 minutes walk away; Helpful local neighbours; One of the most beautiful of all the Greek islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a lovely time and the island with its relaxed ways and beautiful scenery really helped us wind down. Your villa is wonderful, it really was home from home with everything we needed, we were just able to slot in straight away and enjoy ourselves from the moment we opened the door. I think I was upstairs with a cup of tea swiftly followed by a glass of wine on the balcony within the first half hour of our arrival. Thank you so much for the welcome pack it was well thought through and extremely welcome to arrive ' home' to. I say' home' because that's what your villa felt like to us for the week and I'm sure everyone who visit's feels the same.

We made good use of the pool and BBQ and found the meat from the meat market great and also the AB supermarket. I enjoyed driving to there to pick up a few things, its funny how that chore seemed enjoyable in Kefalonia.

We managed to get around a lot of the island. Took the coastal road to Sami, beautiful, although a little scary where they had tarmacked the road and not yet replaced the barrier, but it all added to the charm as there is no rush on Kef.

Visited quite a few bays and enjoyed many a meal at a taverna overlooking the bays. John and Daniel hired a boat a went exploring coves whilst I sat reading and enjoying the life at Skala - ah bliss.

Our days seemed to consist of not rising too early, a few hours out exploring and then home early evening to enjoy the pool and my time on the balcony taking in the views. Really do miss the views especially the mountain. Oh we did take a trip up there too - wonderful.

We found Kefalonia charming, the locals friendly and welcoming.

We would all like to come back to your villa next year as even my husband didn't want to leave ( he is normally itching to come home towards the end of the week)so I will be in touch regarding booking again shortly.

Once again we send our many thanks for letting us enjoy your lovely villa and experience the beautiful Kefalonia.

Wonderful Kefalonia!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Villa Petra this summer after first visiting 2 years ago. The villa is perfect for a family of four and we can't fault it! Kefalonia is a wonderful holiday destination - gorgeous weather and a great selection of beaches, restaurants and some good options for half or full-day trips (in hire car). Everyone is so friendly. We had such a relaxing time, even the teenagers didn't bicker (helped by having Wi-Fi!). See my previous review (Sep 2015) for more info! Thanks Pete & Ange!

We have been holidaying in Kefalonia for 14years and have stayed in many lovely villas, but by far our favourite is Villa Petra. As soon as we arrive we feel at home, as this is our 4th visit and everything is not only familiar but always in perfect order. We are already booked to return next year.

Great accommodation, really well appointment noted and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the directions from the airport were great, very clear and easy to follow. On arrival the villa was clean and the basic supplies left for us - wine, bread, cheese, ham, milk , water and orange juice were much appreciated. The villa itself was lovely, very comfortable with everything that we needed and the views from the bedroom balconies were beautiful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if you are looking for a really well appointed, comfortable and peaceful location then I would thoroughly reccomend Villa Petra.

Lovely Villa in peaceful location with fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Villa Petra. The villa was clean and comfortable and had fantastic mountain and sea views. Truly relaxing and we didn't want to leave. Great location, not too far from the airport. Near Argostoli, which is a great place and very scenic (we also loved watching the Turtles swimming in the harbour). Central to the island, so can visit lots of the sights easily. Great views to be had when driving around. We hope we can visit again as we fell in love with the island and Villa Petra was a great place to stay. Thank you For sharing your Villa with others.

Car: recommended

Villa Petra is set in a stunning location at the edge of the small typically Greek village of Karavados. Karavados is an ideal location for staying in Kefalonia and has fantastic views of the Mount Aenos mountain range and looks down to the turquoise Ionian Sea with the island of Zante visible in the distance.

The village of Karavados has the 'Happiness' restaurant and bar within five minutes walk from the Villa which also has a small mini market attached and there is a wonderful Greek restaurant, Enastron, just a 15 - 20 minute walk away. The wonderful quiet unknown sandy coves of St. Thomas beach are just down the road from Villa Petra, a 20-25 minute walk or a couple of minutes by car where there are a further two tavernas. The beach of St. Thomas is located at the base of a mountain in scenic, craggy, pine-covered terrain, surrounded by citrus trees. A small, flattish plain lies between the village and the coast, where the road drops sharply to the beach. Agios Thomas also known as St Thomas derives it’s name from the chapel which is built on the hill above. Surrounded by cliffs Agios Thomas beach is really two small sandy coves where the water is shallow, calm and resembles blue glass. If you like snorkelling and diving then this place is a good choice. This beach is good for families and an ideal place to relax.

The villa is only a 15 minute drive from the airport and the capital Argostoli is only a 20 minute drive away. Lassi, with several more stunning sandy beaches is again around 20 minutes drive. The Castle of St. George and Lourdas are close by and well worth visiting.

The owners spent several years researching before deciding on the location for the Villa which gives an ideal base for exploring Kefalonia and gives some of the most spectacular views available on the island from it's balconies and terrace/pool area.
