Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday here. The villa is very well maintained, well equipped and provides great holiday accommodation.

As others have said, it is in a quiet area with just one other villa across the small access lane, but it is not isolated and remote like some places we saw on the island.

The location on the island is good too. There are a couple of excellent beaches within a couple of miles, good tavernas and easy access to Argostini and the airport. You do need a car though.

The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. There is an ex pat couple who act as caretakers who gave us some good advice on where to go and where eat when we arrived.

what a fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Krinos on Kefalonia. Set off the beaten track the villa was brilliantly secluded and quiet but within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to be. It was well set out and immaculately clean inside, the pool area was very clean too which was great.

The only thing which could have improved our stay would be the addition of a washing machine and dishwasher as travelling with two small kids we seemed to amass washing and dishes quite quickly although having to do it ourselves didn't spoil our experience.

We had a fantastic holiday and although we font tend to return anywhere, I would happily return here!!

A lovely villa in a very quiet location. There was a very good welcome pack for us with all the basics plus wine & beer too. The air conditioning was a great asset to the villa because the temperatures were very high in August. The pool is extremely well maintained by Bob, we have stayed in some villas with grubby pools. A car is essential to visit the fabulous tavernas nearby with the Olive Lounge & Gefiri being our favourites. Lorna & Ray who look after the villa provided us with a list of events taking plce on the Island. The sun loungers around the pool are uncomfortable because there are no cushions to go on top, but we bought airbeds to use instead. There are lots of wasps on the Island which was not what we expected.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great holiday! The sunbeds are due for replacement next season for a more comfortable design! Unfortunately wasps tend to be a nuisance in Europe and the UK at the end of summer - such is nature.

Second stay review

  • 5 of 5

In the many years my wife and I have been using James Villas and Owners Direct, have we stayed at the same villa twice - until now!

Villa Krinos is set in an idyllic location. The villa is perfect (and clean) for our needs with plenty of space, inside and out with a nice sized pool which is kept immaculate by Bob the pool cleaner.

Also inside is a DVD player with a massive selection of DVD films for adults and kids should you ever need a night in (however unlikely!).

The traditional style BBQ is a nice size and got used on quite a few occasions.

Trapezaki beach is just a couple miles away for a day on the beach with soft sand and turquoise sea water which is very clear for any snorkeling fans. Also stays shallow (up to your chest) for quite a way out so really good for fish watching.

Plenty of nearby Greek Tavernas for dinner and local shops for supplies.

We love Kefalonia and I can't think of any reason not to go back and stay in Villa Krinos next time we visit.

Stunning villa that made our holiday in Kefalonia all the more perfect. Perfect for couples, families young or old or anyone that appreciates stunning views and an immaculate Villa! Great location within easy reach of the airport - we managed to see a lot of the island in the mere 7 days we were there. It was very sad to leave!

Villa Krinos

  • 5 of 5

We can highly recommend Villa Krinos, beautiful private position, convenient to the airport, without noise. Lovely pool (kept very clean) especially on an evening when lit up. Very comfortable property, there was not one thing missing, also great for outdoor eating. Very difficult to fault actually!
