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.

This was our second visit to Villa Ourania. It's a lovely villa and the views are fabulous, it's such a relaxing place. A car is a must as there is so much to see on the island.

Modern comfortable villa set in a hillside in a private location with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

The north of the island holds our favorite places to visit in Kephalonia. Ag Efima has amazing taverns alongside the harbor complete with supermarkets and shops which are welcoming and friendly. Ag Efima is a pretty village with views over to the island of Ithika and is only a 10 mins drive from the villa.

The villa which has its own private pool and outside furniture and area for breakfast and lunch has lovely views over the hillside towards the sea and Ag Efima. It's peaceful except for the goat bells in the distant which we find very relaxing. It is a perfect holiday destination as is ideal for touring the north of the island. The villa has everything you need for a very pleasant stay.

Assos is another beautiful village to visit also Fiscardo. A day can be spent just wondering along either seafronts and stopping for iced coffee and lunch in one of the many taverns. The views across the bays are beautiful.

Mount Ainos natural Park is also a lovely place to experience for a days outing and again the scenery as you scale up towards the mountain is breathtaking.

Northern Kephalonia is a place of outstanding beauty with a community to match. We have stayed at the villa 3 times now because it is a place to relax within a wonderful environment, lovely food and of course more often than not brilliant sunshine and blue skies.

Perfect Location and a Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in villa ourania. It is in a perfect location to explore the north of the island. Easy to drive to Agia Efemia or the beautiful beaches of Zola, Myrtos etc. We were a party of 4 adults and the villa was very comfortable and well equipped. Beds were comfy, pool was great and we loved the rural setting - away from it all but easy to reach places of interest. The villa was very clean and we greatly appreciated the complimentary welcome pack so that we could have a glass of wine and a snack on our arrival (late at night and all the shops were closed!) Our favourite day was when we hired a boat in Agia and we moored on our very own private beach! Fabulous day out! All in all a wonderful week at a fabulous villa. Highly recommended.

Beautiful villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our 10 night stay at Villa Ourania, our first time visiting the beautiful island of Kefalonia. The location of the villa is perfect, completely private with stunning views yet within easy reach of all amenities. The villa itself was beautifully presented upon arrival with a fantastic welcome pack! Pool well maintained and villa kept clean. It has all the essentials you would need which was important for us with having two young children, and everything was in working order. Eating out is very reasonable and having sampled many of the restaurants would highly recommend Spiros which we returned to 3 times. Having visited many places on the island this is definitely one of the best locations! Fiscardo is a must for picturesque scenery and good restaurants. Helpful and friendly owners that made our holiday stress free. Would highly recommend!

Great Place To Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Ourania last year for our family holiday and liked it so much, we returned this year!!

The apartment is modern, clean with all the required mod' con's in a peaceful mountain setting but with the much needed pool on those HOT days. It's literally 10 min's drive to the famous Myrtos beach. The closest town and picturesque port of Agia Effemia is only 10 min's away which has a selection of restaurants, suppermarkets and shops.

What is great about these villas is that they're ideally located in the centre of the island, making everything no more than 45/60 mins drive. The cosmopolitan port of Fiscardo at the top of the island; no more than 40mins away is a MUST; fantastic restaurants!!

If I choose to return to Kefalonia again, I'd have no hesitation is choosing these villas again. The owners are also lovely people who are very helpful and accommodating.

A lovely place to get away from it all, but be in the middle of it all in under 10 min's if you choose!!

Great Place, Great People, Relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

Car is essential, however well worth it, the villa is fantastic. The location is central and a great base for exploring this beautiful island. The Villa is modern and kept very clean, it has all the essentials you require, the pool is great and as other reviewers have commented the welcome pack and flowers are a lovely touch. Most restaurants are reasonably priced and we can't remember any bad meals. My wife and I really enjoyed her 40th birthday stay on the island, we hope to return in the future and would not hesitate to stay at the wonderful Villa Ourania again.
