About The Owner

My husband and I live in England West Yorkshire, and both work full time. My husband is a LGV gas tanker driver and Scuba Padi dive master, I work as a paramedic in the N.H.S.

We spend our holidays in Kefalonia, and have the most wonderful local Greek friends who have made us feel like family.

Family and friends who have been to the Island are now in love with it as much as we are.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

On having had so many chilled out Holidays in Agia Effimia, we decided to buy a plot of land and build two villas.

The land has spectacular views and seclusion, and is in a beautiful setting, yet still near to beaches, shops, restaurants. Both villas have their own private swimming pool.

Laze by the pool and take in the magnificent uninterrupted views, bbq on the warm evenings while breathing in the clear fresh mountain air. Be sure to watch out for the short toed Eagles as they soar above.

On an evening the bats swooping across the lighted pool are a sight to see, a nature lover's paradise.

The crystal clear sea and archaeological sites are a few beauties of this Island. The magical unspoilt Greece is still here.

What makes this villa unique

Unique with every modern convenience having the ultimate peace and relaxation, a complete get away from it all holiday. Stunning sea and mountain views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Ormofia is lovely and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. We were really impressed with how frequently the villa was cleaned (a lot more than previous experiences) and the flowers each time were a lovely touch. The location of the villa was fantastic/very secluded peaceful and beautiful scenery. Agia Effimia is a lovely port and we were able to get everything we needed from the supermarket, butchers and bakeries. There are also lovely restaurants to eat out in on an evening. We were ideally located to be able to travel around, and see the island. It is well worth travelling around with so many nice places to visit. Suz A Swindon UK date of stay May 2009.

Villa Ourania 2010 We had a fantastic holiday & everything was brilliant as described. The cleaning service was excellent.We are definitely going to recommend the Villas to our friends.Sally Sterry Bristol. We had a lovely stay & it was lovely & comfortable &very relaxing we didnt want to leave. C Bradshaw July 2010.

Beautiful views across stunning Kefalonia

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this villa. It was located in a good position close to Agia Efimia, which is a picturesque fishing village with plenty of restaurants and cafes. The villa was clean on arrival and had everything we needed for a very pleasant stay. Great for families looking to get away from it all! Thank you.

Beautiful villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Great villa with fantastic outdoor and pool area with barbecue, parasols and enough sun loungers for all guests. The villa is perfectly located in Loukata, within easy reach of Agia Efimia and Myrtos Beach. The villa is clean and modern and very well equipped, car hire is essential because of its location, but the owners recommended a great local car hire firm who brought our cars to the airport and met us from our flight. We will certainly be back and would recommend this to anyone looking for a villa in beautiful Kefalonia.

Lovely villa, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent instructions meant we arrived safely despite being very dark and late! Villa just as we'd hoped, spacious clean and comfortable. Excellent outside space and pool. Very quiet and peaceful location so car essential but perfect for exploring the whole island. Agia Efimia is charming, pretty, not too busy with several good tavernas, a couple of supermarkets with everything you could need as well as a lovely butchers and bakery.

We would recommend taking a little boat from the harbour and finding your own private beach for the day as well as the horse riding up into the hills. This was great fun and a highlight of the holiday but probably wouldn't recommend for absolute beginners or those scared of heights!

Myrtos beach is only a 10 minute drive (go at sunset) and the diving centre in Agia Efimia was helpful and professional.

Thank-you Andy for helping us out on our last day - that made a real difference and we were most grateful.

We would thoroughly recommend the villa and wish we were there now!

lovely relaxing villa for a super holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the villa which was really easy due to andy and pat holiday pack which we received prior to leaving the uk. We found the villa to be everything we hoped it would be and more. The kitchen had everything you needed and due to this we did a lot of meals in the villa which saves you a lot of money due to not eating out ever night. The 3 bedrooms which we had we just great plenty of space and all with en suite and air conditioning. The pool was a lovely size and the children were in it when ever they had chance. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday then this is the place to stay. Would recommend it to all. On the last day of our holiday in fact leaving for the airport the children closed the main door and hadd left the keys in. I rang the owners up and andy couldn't have be nicer about it and said don't worry we will sort it out, and 10 minutes later rung me back and true to his word had which I must admit put myself and my wife's mind at ease. So again I say thanks to the owners and would recommend to all

amazing

  • 5 of 5

There are no other words for it but FANTASTIC. Beautiful immaculate accommodation in gorgeous surroundings. The villa has 3 large ensuite bedrooms one of which opens onto the pool and terrace area.We had some great evenings around the barbecue and pool.Pat and Andrew the owners could not do enough for us and recommended fabulous bars and restaurants in agia efimia and surrounding areas. Our favourite was with no doubt the Local situated on the sea front with amazing views . The best bar for food and cocktails and to watch the world go by for us was Fior d:amour on the harbour front . Both restaurants and bar has great hosts and made us feel so welcome.Kefalonia is a must to visit and i cannot recommend villa ormofia highly enough .
