Guestbook comments from the owner

‘We fell in love with this beautiful little villa the moment we saw it. We liked it so much we didn't want to go out (H).



‘We had a fabulous 2 weeks in this delightful well equipped villa. We watched Kefalonian eagles flying above us’ (TC).



Thank you SO much for having such a fantastic villa!!! Villa Morea was everything we were looking for and we enjoyed every single moment. You are so fortunate to have paradise only 3 hours away - we finally arrived home after 23 hours - but the stay was certainly worth it and we will definitely be sharing the name 'Villa Morea' with our Canadian friends! (KA)



Well what can we say, it was absolutely stunning. We never went out accept to buy provisions, and had only one full day to go to Assos!! We could not tear ourselves away, and could not believe two weeks could go so quickly. (KH)‘We loved the finishing touches’ (H)

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just had a week at this lovely villa in a wonderful location. What wonderful panoramic views of Mounda Bay.

If you want peace and quiet, then this is the perfect place.

Only the birds and a few goats can be heard at times.

The villa is well maintained by the Unique team.

The correspondence between the owners was excellent.

We had a mixed bag of weather, but the storms were spectacular to view from the villa.

Skala and Katelios are a short drive for any restaurants.

The villa is well stocked with utensils if you want to cook in, and has a BBQ for alfresco eating.

Can't wait to return next year for a longer stay.

One of our best Greek holidays ever-August 2016

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from kefelonia having had a wonderful stay in Villa Morea. Exactley as advertised the Villa was a perfect location for relaxing so much so it's not easy tearing yourself away to go and do any sightseeing(Captain jerry's in Katelios for the sea bass and red snapper is a must) The area is quiet which is a must for us and the view probably the best we have ever had on many of the Greek islands we have visited. We went into Skala 3/4 times but spent most of the time away from the Villa in Katelios especially for the lunches and to top up on essentials for the Villa. A top notch holiday, we will definatly return. Many thanks to all who looked after the Villa durring our stay.

Wonderful End-of-Season Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The organisation with owners of the villa was hassle-free with quick email responses containing all requested information as well as local useful advice.

Upon arrival, the villa was in a perfect condition ready to receive new visitors. There was even a very generous arrival pack to make those first few hours/day settling down to relax even easier.

Throughout our one-week stay the maids visited twice which was more than enough to change the bedding, clear out rubbish and perform a general tidy - even with the addition of a beautiful bouquet of flowers for added effect.

On one of the days we woke up without electrical power. However, after calling the advertised helpline the response was incredibly quick and normal service was resumed within 10 minutes.

In summary, the villa was truly wonderful with excellent service. Many thanks to the owners and service team!

Location

From the Owner

Peace and quiet were top priority as we particularly wanted to build a little love nest that would be perfect for honeymooners or just old romantics. We have high standards and needed a plot with a spectacular view and privacy, within easy reach of local facilities and beaches. We also love turtles and the local turtle beach made this the perfect place.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

Five minutes drive to beautiful sandy turtle beaches with local cafe. Sandy Skala beach with water sports facilities 10 minutes drive. Sandy Katelios beach 10 minutes drive, traditional tavernas and fish restaurants. Good snorkeling rocky beaches towards Poros and amazing 'magic mushroom' beach (stone formations in the sea) about 15 minutes drive. World famous Myrtos beach about an hour but worth it for the view en route to Fiskado and Assos. Something for every mood.

Travel:

Argostoli airport (EFL) 40 minutes. Car hire essential.

Distances:

Village ruins of Old Skala 1km. Taverna, delightful old washhouse, ancient church tower and ruined olive press. Stunning walks on doorstep up into the hills or down to Skala using old footpath/donkey roads. Skala 10 minutes drive. Katelios 10 minutes drive. Cosmopolitan Argostoli 40 minutes drive. Traditional Poros 25 minutes drive where you can catch the ferry for Zante. Marcoupoulo 15 minutes drive.

Further Details:

Skala: well supplied with tavernas, cafes, bars, supermarkets, butcher, internet cafe, car and bike hire and excursions. Katelios: Traditional Greek fishing village with fish restaurants on the beach and long sandy turtle beach.

Poros: amazing gorge, marina and plenty of good shops banks, ATM and pharmacy. Argostoli: cosmopolitan capital with 'George' the turtle often seen waiting for the fishing boats in the harbour.

Town square is full of cafes where Greeks go to eat baclava and children play until well past midnight.

Sami: amazing acropolis and excavated roman ruins is about an hour away by car. Fiskado, the St Tropez of Kefalonia is worth a visit. High quality gift shops and good food. A great cave and unique underground lake.

Good quality local wine. Try Robola for white or buy the plastic bottled wine made even more locally. Usually surprisingly good. Olive oil available on tap from greengrocers in Poros. Take your own bottle.
