Guestbook comments from the manager

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...

Wonderful villa and service

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the airport by costas who was very welcoming, spoke good English and showed us where the villa was. The villa is stunning with breathtaking views. There is so much room inside and out. I don't want to recommend it too highly in case it's always booked when we want to go!! We would love to return. Elias is a great owner with lots of contact and all questions no matter how small were answered promptly. His staff were very good and Elini was on the end of a phone if we needed anything. The pool man came regularly and an added bonus was there were plenty of towels for beach, pool and villa. We had a car which was useful but sometimes walked back to the villa from the beach anyway. Wonderful holiday in a marvellous villa in an excellent location. Thankyou elias

Superbe maison en Grèce

  • 5 of 5

Superbe semaine dans cette magnifique villa

Nous étions deux famille avec 5 enfants et 5 adultes, nous avons eu largement assez de place.

La piscine est exceptionelle et le personnelle est venu 2 fois contrôler l'eau et faire les chambres, nous avons été dans un confort parfait.

Ayant fait beaucoup d'îles en Grèce , l'île de céphalonia est pour moi la plus cosy et la plus agréable pour des vacances farniente en famille.

Merci encore pour cette superbe semaine , a l'année prochaine

Beautiful holidays in the pleasant villa

  • 5 of 5

My famile and I(4 people) have rested in this villa for one week in July 2017. We have prepared our holidays in advance. Elias answered all the questions rapidly and in details, that helped us a lot whith our planning. 

My son has arrived in villa one day before all other family. He was met in the airport, taken to the villa and taught about everything. 

The villa is well-groomed, everything needed for rest is there. Ideal place for a company of 4-6 people. The swimmingpool is clean and is served regulary.

The house itself if located very conveniently, neighbours are not seen. The view on the sean and the mountains is great. 

There are 2 shops in 10 monutes walk. Also there are some yavernas and cafes were you can eat traditional greek food.

The best option is to be with a car, bacause it is not easy to go from the villa to the sea and backwards.

The ratio of price to quality is optimal.

Recomend to visit this villa.

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 :)

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.
