Guestbook comments from the manager

As soon as you arrive at this fantastic villa, you just feel at home. Perched above the road, it is totally private and secluded with panoramic views of the mountains and the sea beyond. It is beautifully styled and appointed throughout and you will want for nothing. There are numerous areas to relax in both sun and shade and the pool is a welcome relief when it gets too hot. A short walk takes you down to the pretty village of Agia Effimia, where you will find many restaurants, bars and a few shops. Even here there is a wonderfully relaxed up-market atmosphere about the place and you don't get the feeling that it has been ruined by tourism – maybe because of all the very expensive yachts in the harbour! Make sure you hire one of the small day boats from Boulevard boats and explore the surrounding coastline from the water – well worth it! I cannot praise Roz Villa highly enough as it is just about as perfect as you could get for a family holiday – we will be returning soon! Thanks Vicky.

A really beautiful Villa. Decorated very nicely. Great gardens with secluded terraces. Completely private, not over looked by anyone. Brilliant sized pool. Great location for visiting the island, Fiskcardo and Assos and hour, 10 minute walk into port and 10 min drive to stunning local beaches. We highly recommend this villa, amazing value and really friendly helpfl owners.

What a Villa !!

  • 5 of 5

When you read other peoples reviews of somewhere, there's always a slight suspicion when they wax lyrical about it. So to put any doubters minds at rest, let me assure you, what has been said before is spot on. We (eight of us) had a lovely stay at this Villa (3 weeks). It was more like a home from home, rather than renting a villa, with its tasteful decoration and mix of traditional Greek and modern style, comfortable and well thought out. A beautiful established garden in full bloom, and a lime tree providing the limes for our gin and tonics pool side, with plenty of areas to sunbath or relax in the shade. The team lead by Amanda were polite, helpful and unobtrusive, which was much appreciated. The house was spotless and with the pool was cleaned regularly. The lighting for the pool and the sound system outside made for wonderful relaxing post dinner evenings.

The greatest compliment I can give it is we got back to rain and traffic jams, so thoughts immediately turned to next year, and going back there. It's almost fully booked, so fingers crossed we manage to sort it in time. Thanks to Vicki and everyone who made our stay the great and so relaxing experience it was, and look forward to a return visit soon.

Truly wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week we had at Roz villa! Super place, full of character, lovely pool and delightful gardens - so peaceful too and yet walkable to many great tavernas on the water's edge. Perfect! And everyone in Agia Efimia was so friendly!

Tranquil Stay in a Perfect Setting!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Roz Villa with my best friend for a 10 day stay. The villa was beautiful -clean, tastefully decorated, well maintained and extremely comfortable. Everything that we could possibly need for a truly relaxing stay was provided.

The accommodation and location were as stunning as the photographs on the website suggest. The garden of the villa is an absolute delight and we very much enjoyed lounging by the gorgeous pool in the warm sunshine and using the various comfortable seating areas around the exterior of the property. The stunning array of plants, flowers and fruit trees together with the lighting around the garden at night and the facility to pipe music around the pool when desired, were added touches that really set the outside space at this villa apart from any other I've stayed in.

The location of the villa was perfect for us. It sits in an elevated position on a hill overlooking Agia Efimia. It is private and quiet but also within 10 minutes walking distance of the port which provides a small but good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes together with a lovely bakery, a butchers, a post office and a pharmacy. There are also some nice gift shops and a real gem of a supermarket where you can get just about anything you could possibly want, at exceedingly reasonable prices! We were looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings and so despite some establishments beginning to close for the end of the season we were very content.

There were a couple of cloudy/wet days during our stay (which we didn't think at all bad given the time of year) and we were happy to go out in our hire car and explore some of the beautiful island. We experienced some of the most beautiful, unspoilt and sparsely populated beaches and areas of natural beauty I've ever seen.

From the time we made our enquiry of the owner, right through to our reluctant return home from our holiday, the customer service has been second to none. The booking process was quick and easy, Vicky sent us helpful information and a map and directions to the villa and answered our questions promptly and helpfully. She telephoned us at the Villa to ensure that we had arrived safely and that everything was to our satisfaction. Amanda, the manager of the Villa was also very kind and helpful. Both made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable.

I highly recommend this excellent villa and look forward to booking again!

A fantastic villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home after a fabulous weeks holiday in this wonderful Villa, we were all absolutely over the moon with everything about it from the moment we arrived we felt immediately at home and relaxed. What a fantastic Villa it is and the setting is idyllic we just did not want to go out anywhere but felt we needed to show our friends the surrounding places which we love. We had a totally amazing week which We did not want to end.

Special interest holidays:

Apart from the fabulous opportunities for water based sport, including scuba diving, yachting and swimming in the summer, during the off-season periods (March-April and October-November) there are a variety of outdoor activities that can be used as a basis for special interest holidays for horse trekking, walking, bird watching, painting and photography. This makes Roz Villa an ideal base for nature lovers and out-door activities.

Coast/Beach:

A 15 minute drive west of Roz Villa is Myrtos Beach - voted one of the top ten beaches in the world. 25 minutes to the east of the villa is Anti Samos Beach - the location for part of the film set of Captain Corelli's Mandolin - an ideal place for snorkelling. Within and just outside Agia Efimia there are numerous small beaches and coves, while near the village of Karavomilos (2km outside Sami) is the precipitous Melissani Cave.

Travel:

Kefalonia Airport is approximately 40km from Roz Villa, while the port of Sami, which offers car ferries links to the mainland and to Italy, is 10km from the villa. To fully enjoy what Kefalonia has to offer it is essential to hire a car - we can arrange for your use a hired car to be collected/dropped off at the airport. Taxi rate to/from airport/villa is approximately 50 Euros.

Distances:

Kefalonia Airport is approximately one hour's drive from Roz Villa. Sami port is 15 mins drive. Recommended places to visit (with distances from Roz Villa) include: Argostoli (30km), Assos (10 km), Fiskardo (30 km), Skala (40km) and Poros (30km).

Further Details:

Agia Efimia has several supermarkets, two bakeries, a post office, a chemist, a cash point, numerous tavernas, bars and coffee bars. One can hire cars and mopeds and motorboats in the village and book tennis courts and scuba diving lessons. The municipality of Pylaros, in which Agia Efimia is located, offers numerous enchanting walks both in the valley and the surrounding mountains with breathtaking views and wonderful varieties of flora and fauna. Local villages, such as Makriotika and Drakapoulata, offer an insight into unspoilt Greek rural life and numerous buildings and sites of historical interest. We recommend a trip to Mount Enos, Kefalonias highest mountain, to enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Kefalonia and other Ionian Islands. Stop for some local wine-tasting at the village of Frangata. Follow the dramatic cliff and mountain road to Myrtos Beach, then wind down in the atmospheric little harbour of Assos. Take a boat trip from Sami across to nearby Ithaca or take the twice-daily boat trip from Fiscardo to explore Lefkas. Explore the fishing port of Fiskardo for its smart yachts and charming narrow streets of Venetian-style houses. Native to Kefalonia are some of the best beaches in Greece. Hire a small boat and spend the day visiting tiny isolated beaches and coves all along the pretty coastline. Drive along the main coastal road to Sami and stumble across small scattered beaches amongst the rocks.

Much of the busy nightlife in Kefalonia is concentrated in the main town of Argostoli. The central square is lined with many restaurants, cafes and bars.

In Kefalonia you will find an abundance of spectacular scenery, traditional tavernas, stunning white beaches and warm, friendly Greek hospitality.
