About the property

Villa in Klismata, Kefalonia - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk to Palio Linos Beach

Sit back and let your senses transport you into paradise.

Villa Dionysos was built nine years ago and was the first to be built in the valley above the Paliolinos Beach. It is situated in a calm, peaceful area just outside the main village. There are some beautiful walks around the area, you can walk to Paliolinos Beach along the rocky shore where there are some very secluded beaches. The Villa features air-conditioning in every room and has some nice modern touches to make you feel at home, like WiFi and a Nintendo Wii. All rooms have hairdryers. The owner stays on site in a separate studio which is attached to the main the building which is accessed by a separate entrance which means it does not encroach on the guests privacy. This does mean any guests have the assurance that if they have any assistance or advice during their holiday, we are just a step stone away.

More images are available by e mailing the owner.

Please note this property is accessed by road from the village and then a track, (driving instructions given when bookings are confirmed).

We like to support the local car hire companies and we can organise along with other activities such as boat hire, sea kayaking and jeep safari. Taxis are available booking through the owner.

A light starter pack is supplied complimentary however food hampers are also available for an additional cost - please e-mail for further information.

Should guests not want mid week cleaning a small discount will be given and linen and towels will still be delivered.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Had a great weeks holiday at the villa, would definitely rate it 5 star. The villa is excellent and has everything you could wish for. The lads are great and cant do enough for you. The pool is fantastic and having a Wii to play on is great not only for the children but also the adults. We went home and brought one straight away! Would highly recommend for a quiet, get away from it all holiday. Just don't buy any eggs from the local shop as extortionate!!! Also recommend the restaurant at the top of the road that looks like a castle, really lovely owners who will cook anything you ask for, they even wave you off every evening."

Well equipped villa in tranquil surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A very peaceful location and an extremely well equipped villa.

The owners were very friendly and had us met at the airport which was a very nice touch.

I would recommend staying here.

Superb in every way

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spotlessly clean and very well maintained - even better than the pictures. The seating area overlooking the pool now has extra shading so you can sit at the table for the whole day admiring the view but out of the sun. (plenty of places to sit in the sun if you want to).

The house is very well equipped with everything you could need for your holiday - not once over two weeks did we say "Shame that there isn't this or that here". There was a super welcome pack of food and beverages waiting for us when we arrived.

Graham is a superb host. Our flight was delayed due to French air traffic controllers industrial action and he took the trouble to meet us at the airport and escort us back to the villa. As noted in a previous review, you would not know that he lived next door - we barely saw him when we were there.

The road to the property is good quality, having been recently resurfaced. The last 50m is unmade but fine if you take it slowly. A car is essential but nothing is too far away.

The airport is only 15 minutes drive away but there are only a handful of flights a day and do not cause any disturbance.

The pool was wonderful and is regularly cleaned (early in the morning).

The nearest sandy beaches are a short drive away in either direction. There are great places to eat at both of them. For food shopping Carrefour and AB Foods are 10 minutes by car on the main road to Argostoli.

We had a fabulous 2 week stay and look forward to being able to return in the not too distant future.

Home from home in the sunshine

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous villa with everything taken care of by a lovely host, Graham. It's great being able to arrive on holiday to a clean villa, plenty of pool and bath towels, fully equipped kitchen, TV with some British channels, iPod docking station etc etc. The weather was amazing for our whole stay too. Defiantly need a hire car for this location! Roads are a bit rough and require careful negotiation but that means you have a beautiful peaceful holiday. The tiny beach at Klismata is stunning, can't believe beaches like this still exist. Plenty of local mini markets within a 10 minute drive. We were in Kefalonia for a family wedding and what a location! We will be back for sure! Graham, what a pleasure to meet you and Enos (the dog). See you soon. Xx

villa in klismata

  • 5 of 5

From arriving at the villa to the day we left Graham the owner could not have been more welcoming, dont be put off by the owners living on site as I think I saw Graham three times in two weeks. The villa was like walking into someones home with all the home comforts there waiting for you. The pool is a very good size which had underwater lighting that went off at 11.30 which was great for a dip before bed. The road down to the villa is quite bumpy and you will need a car as it is quite away from a main road this suited us as it was quiet and relaxing apart from a few cars during the day going down to the local beach and the local shepherd driving his goats with there bells round there necks every evening . The taverna at the top of the hill we used on a couple of occasions and found the food to be good but if you have a car you are never very far from a good place to eat or do as we did on a few nights and use the villas barbecue and sit outside under the stars to eat. This really is a great place to recharge your batteries but please dont all book it or there will be no space for us to return.
