Why Lesley Barritt chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

Villa Bernice is in a quiet, rural location with spectacular views. It's private yet close to all the local beaches and tavernas. The area is breathtakingly beautiful; it has a coastline dotted with rocky coves at the foot of dense, vivid green forest and a crystal clear sea so warm you can swim all day. In the hills lie half-forgotten villages unchanged for generations with small tavernas and bars.

What makes this villa unique

The villas stand in the tiny hilltop village of Percolari a short drive from Fiscardo, the most beautiful village in Greece. It is a short drive to two of the finest swimming spots in Kefalonia, Alaties Beach and Jerusalem Beach; both beaches have small tavernas next to them. A few minutes away is the traditional village of Maganos where there are inexpensive local tavernas offering traditional Kefalonia fare, traditional Greek dancing at Ionia on Wednesday nights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your villa is the perfect accommodation with a fantastic location, panoramic view and it is obvious you have paid great attention to every detail... as if it is your own home. We sincerely hope that we have the chance to come again." The Sanders Family, Sheffield.

"The sunset from the terrace and the view of the Ionian Sea are perfect and I could have spent the whole week staring at it, we have had a perfect, peaceful, sensual week... our only mistake was only coming for one week, but we will certainly be back. The villa is fabulous, so thoughtfully equipped and lovely to live in." Caroline, Alex and Nick, Sussex.

"The villa has amazing views. This has to be one of the loveliest villas we have ever staying in, every need has been met." Peter, Gail Lawrence and family.
