Guestbook comments from the owner

Definitely coming back!

I've been to Greece many times, and have rented a villa in Kefalonia twice before. Even though I have been to Lourdas many times, I didn't know where Villa Rakotis was exactly, but that didn't matter because Karen, who manages the villa, met us at the airport and took us there. The best thing about Rakotis Villa is the view and the tranquility. I could have stayed there all day, but I didn't want to cook for 6 everyday - I needed a holiday! Anyway, I did cook a meal twice (in the very spacious and well equiped kitchen) and had 3 or 4 barbeques under the pergola looking down on Lourdas and across at Zakinthos. We felt like greek gods! The house was much more spacious than I anticipated for a 3 bedroomed villa, and it was a luxury for each couple to have their own en-suite bathroom..Beautiful view:Had a fabulously relaxing holiday here, and cannot recommend Rhakotis Villa enough. In a lovely peaceful location,within walking distance of some lovely tavernas...

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

From my first enquiry the owner couldn't have been more helpful. He arranged for us to be met and accompanied on the trip from the airport and even went shopping for essentials as it was late.

The villa is breathtaking, lovely large pool, comfiest beds I've come across in a villa, and such wonderful views from three balconies and sun terrace. We had our best holiday ever. 100% recommended!

Lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I, along with two other couples, stayed in this lovely villa. The views are spectacular with a backdrop of a mountain and clear blue water. The villa is on the side of a mountain with a couple of bars and restaurants in walking distance. I would recommend hiring a car to go exploring though.

We were met at the airport from Jeff who was very nice and supporting thought out our stay.

Beautiful Villa in Stunning Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Rhakotis for 2 weeks in June. From the beginning booking is simple and the owner Elias answers any questions quickly and efficiently. We hire a car which in my opinion is essential as the villa is up a steep hill. Elias organised the car hire for and the company were there to meet us when we arrived at Kefalonia Airport along with Jeff who is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We followed him to the villa and pleased we did or we would never have found it. The villa is simply stunning. There are 3 massive, comfortable bedrooms all with their own en suite and balcony. There is a very well equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room. The swimming pool is divine and is very private with amazing views. We spent most days relaxing in the sunshine around the pool. Mobile numbers are provided in case you have any questions and Jeff is always happy to help. Thank you to Elias and Jeff for making our holiday amazing and to see you again one day :)

"Villa Gorgeous"

  • 5 of 5

I won't say anything about the island of Kefalonia, as most have been before. Suffice to say though, it is heaven on earth. We renamed Villa Rhakotis, "Villa Gorgeous", or rather my two and a half year old granddaughter, who stayed with us for the first of our three weeks, did. The views from every angle is simply stunning. The front has the turquoise sea, and the mountain at the back just takes your breath away. The villa itself has everything you would expect for a home from home, admittedly we never used the oven or cooker, but I'm sure if you didn't want to visit any of the fantastic tavernas, the kitchen would allow you to cook anything you wanted. From the booking contact we had with Elias, through to meeting Jeff and Sue, everything about Villa Gorgeous was easy, friendly and accommodating. Whatever I say will not do justice to the Villa, so please don't take my word for how beautiful it is, just book. Gary

Ideal Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Rhakotis for a week in June 2015 – three sisters and their chaps. Three bedrooms, all with brilliant sea views across the bay with additional balconies and BBQ patios with the same. The villa is well equipped, spacious, clean – it was excellent. The pool needed using on a daily basis and was up to the job! Elias was most helpful in advising us in the booking process, organised our car hire and gave travel advice for the couple who flew into Athens from Atlanta. We arrived in two separate groups and were separately met and taken to the villa by Jeff and Sue – very useful as it took us a few trips to get to grips with the location. Jeff dropped by midweek to see how we were, give advice on the island and to change towels. The walk to the beach is easy – coming back is more of a challenge and so we used the cars. Kefalonia speaks for itself. We don’t often go to the same place twice but would be happy to do so here.

Fantastic villa in a breathtaking location!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I enquired about the villa with Elias, to when we stepped off the plane to be met by Jeff and Sue at the airport, to the minute we left, we have had the most wonderful experience. Elias was so helpful and even booked our rental car for us. Jeff and Sue gave us all the hints and tips of where to go and what to see...which made us feel totally at ease as soon as we got there.

The villa is really well equipped with amazing views from the turquoise waters to the wonderful snow capped mountains. Towels etc were changed mid way through the week which was great.

The villa was clean, well maintained and the location was perfect. Free wifi, Bt Sport (which was fab as my partner and I are Saracens fans and the Prem final was on!) and lots of other cable channels. I would highly recommend this villa and the customer experience with it, to all my friends and family and will be definitely going again.

Thanks to everyone who made it such a great holiday! :)

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : at 17 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 1 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended


Long sandy beaches with the closest being a 15 minute walk downhill.. Approximately 600m from the sea and a 1km walk. Nearest restaurant is a 7 minute walk. 5-15 minutes drive from a choice of many sandy beaches.


Kefalonia airport is 15km from Villa Rhakotis if driving from the airport or sea port then find the main road heading south for Skala from Argostoli. Turn right downhill when you reach the sign post for Lourdata, keep going all the way down heading for the beach. When you reach a big oak tree with several tavernas, and Neptune Motorcycle rental shop, turn left uphill for 150m and then turn right at the poster signaling "Rhakotis ". Two hundred metres along flat road you will find Villa Rhakotis.


Kefalonia has a different spectacular view on every corner and turn on the road. It has Myrtos beach which is in the top ten most photographed beaches in the world.

Further Details:

Kefalonia / Ithaki is reputed to be the home of King Odysseus and places such as Melisani lake, Drongarati cave, Assos and Fiscardo are all defiantly worth a visit as is Sami where mainly the movie Captain Correlis Mandolin was filmed.
