Outstanding holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, fantastic peaceful (apart from Cicada), quiet rural location with stunning views. The colourful flowers, the scent of herbs, and the mellow sound of the sheep bells all added to the experience. The weather was cloudless and warm ... many hours spent enjoying the pool (and jakuzzi !) Easy access to tavernas and restaurants at Skala and Kato. Look forward to returning next year.

Great location & lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Villa Morea.

Such a great place to enjoy peace & tranquility.

Weather was good, so able to use the infinity pool most days.

Villa well equipped for cooking, so eating alfresco in October was lovely.

Villa is about a 10 minute drive to Skala, & Katelios.

Hope to return again.

Lovely peaceful romantic villa

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a lovely week at Villa Morea, everything was as we remembered, very well equipped and in a lovely location. Do try the Old Skala Taverna which is just round the other side of the hill - well worth the view and the food is the best we had whilst we were there. We hope to return in the near future.

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.

About Carole

We are a retired professional couple who visited Kefalonia and fell in love with this beautiful peaceful island.

Carole purchased this villa in 2008

Why Carole chose Ratzakli

Peace quiet and relaxation 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 a very special perfect place.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Morea is very special. Designed for romantic getaways with peace and tranquility, but also easy access to livelier places. The tranquil rural setting and spectacular views are just so amazing you won't want to go out. Authentic family run tavernas bars and beaches close by.

Guestbook comments from the manager

‘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)
