Wonderful and peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quiet apartment with a lovely pool. The place was clean and very tidy. No nuisance and noisy neighbors to deal with, unlike our last place we stayed!! It was a perfect location for us to explore the island as it is just off the main road. The tranquil terrace with the pool was just what we needed to relax. There is no near tavernas but it was just a short drive down the road to the bars etc in Katelios and then Skala. Tip: buy your things from the bigger mini markets in Skala or from the supermarkets nearer to Argostoli when you pass. High let recommend this place if you want a relaxing get away b

Beautiful island!

  • 3 of 5

Kefalonia is a lovely island with fantastic scenery. Eating out is very reasonable and food is good. If we visited Kefalonia in the future I would not stay in Valeriano as it was a bit out of the way for us. The nearest beach (Koroni) is around a 15 minute drive. It's 5 minute to turn off and then 3-4 kilometres down a very steep unmade road so unless you've hired a car that can cope with off road conditions you shouldn't attempt it. The car hire companies advise you not to drive on these unmade roads. There are other beaches which are more accessible and are about 10-15 minutes. The apartment was spacious and modern but when we arrived we were very disappointed to find it dirty as there are 12 reviews that stated it was very clean. Kitchen cupboards were dirty as were all the floors. There were hairs and hair clips on the floor in the bathroom and the toilet was stained inside and out. Another concern was the pool, which was not maintained by a professional with the correct equipment which is why there was quite a lot of debris at the bottom. We were there for 10 days and the chemicals were checked once by a lady that did the apartment cleaning. On our last day we had very bad thunderstorms and spent some of that day and night mopping the floor of the apartment with towels because the ceiling was leaking.

Owner's Response: We are sorry the cleaning was unfinished when you arrived but the cleaner just started and left with severe migraine. We didn't know at that time and we realise that as soon as you rang the agents they came immediately and thoroughly cleaned to your satisfaction. This was one of those unavoidable things that sometimes happens but we feel it's how quickly it's resolved that matters. We again apologise. With regards the pool, there's no need to worry because it is maintained with the correct equipment and has been for many years enjoyed by many families. It is maintained every other day as Linda (who lives opposite) chooses to arrive very early in the morning, usually when guests are not awake, so as not to disturb you in the afternoon when you may be lounging around the pool. The debris in the pool bottom unavoidably blows in from the pine trees when it's very windy. We do have a net available for you to scoop it out if you want but it causes no problem to the pool and we sort it when the pool is checked. Unfortunately you experienced one of the worst storms for some time and the driving rain blew under the door upstairs and came through our ceiling! Thank you for cleaning this up for us and we again are sorry you felt unhappy.

Good location to explore the island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a really lovely holiday in this villa. The location is quiet which really suited us and within minutes to some lovely beaches. The villa had all the facilities needed for a holiday and we would highly recommend this one. We will be returning at some stage, watch this space!!!

Fab place, beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay if you want peace and quiet in a dramatic setting. We have just returned from a fabulous holiday with many precious memories made. The apartment was spotless, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. We were grateful to get there late at night and find the basics in the fridge for breakfast the following day. Communication with Colin was excellent and we were pleased to have stayed here. It is about 40 mins from the airport a nice easy breathtaking journey and we could not find a single thing to critisize during our stay. Lovely bars /restaurants down in Katelios, just ten minutes away, with boat hire if required and we found the whole Island a dream place to go to. Skala was just a short lovely drive away. Argosoli was well worth a visit. The mountain backdrop and inland Kefalonia was incredible. I would highly recommend anyone considering going to Kefalonia to consider this property for they will not be dissapointed. The pool was very welcome on those hot sunny days. We noted that properties with pools were few and far between and we were grateful to have this very important extra. Thank you for sharing your holiday home with us and ensuring that we had a pleasant stay.

The Aldridge Family

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the villa and we have had another wonderful holiday. Very relaxing and a wonderful part of kefalonia. The people are so friendly and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. Communication with Colin and Suzie was fantastic once again which ensured everything went smoothly. The amount of choice when it comes to eating is wonderful without it feeling like it is too busy down at the tavernas on the sea front. Our favourite taverna has to be Persa's which is just back from the beach. Lovely home made and traditional food.

Thanks again Colin and Suzie for the use of your villa. It is so nice to return to this beautiful island and enjoy it whilst feeling comfortable and relaxed in such a clean, convenient and all together perfect villa.
