About the Owner
About Frances Findlay
We have had a business in Kefalonia for almost 20 years. We had two children and now live both in Kefalonia and the U.K.. It is a family run business, building and managing villas. We manage, clean and maintain all our villas to a very high standard.
Frances Findlay purchased this villa in 2005
Why Frances Findlay chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)
The location was ideal and just at the start of tourism in the area. This multi unit property was built, with the intension of the owner eventually retiring to one of them in years to come. Lourdas is a quaint village with enough tourism to make it busy but with it's style and tradition kept intact
What makes this villa unique
The location is ideal if you do not want to travel far and wish to have amenities close by and great for quiet walks away from main roads.
A 15% deposit is require to secure a booking and a further 35% two months prior to arrival and the final 50% one month in advance. All rental payments must be made prior to arrival.
No specific days. Entrance to the villa is accepted after 2pm and departure must be by 10.00am (unless otherwise agreed).

Loved Villa Kokilli,all on 1 level,nice and simple! Lvly pool and so private.We were in Villa Asterias for 1 week(see review for August 25th),but Kokilli just great for us as we oldies but goodies and felt very much at home.great views from pool to mountains,comfy bed,showers etc good.Thank you again Francis for everything,we be back.
A perfect villa, but a hilly location .
A perfect villa for 6 people had everything we needed .
Excellent swimming pool , peaceful location with mountain views. Good aircon in all bedrooms.
Need to have a car to discover the surrounding areas as very hilly !
My parents who are in their late 60s struggled with walking out at night because of this.
But overall I would recommend this villa , Frances was fantastic, very easy to contact & also helped to organise a hire car.
A great stay!
Beautiful visit to Villa Kokili
What an absolute gem of a villa set in a beautiful location. From the minute we stepped foot in the Villa we knew we were in for a great holiday, a fabulous and much thought out welcome pack had been left for us, the Villa itself was spotless inside and outside round the pool.
The Villa was well equipped for cooking but with so many gorgeous restaurants around, we only really had breakfast and lunch.
We met the pool man who was great and he recommended some places to eat.
Lourdas itself is a beautiful village and so many beaches to try as well as tavernas, one of our favourites was Liza's Grill, this is at the bottom of the hill from the Villa.
Booking through Owners Direct was easy and I kept in contact with the owner of the Villa, who was very helpful, directions sent out to the Villa where easy to follow.
We are definitely booking to return next year.
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Kefalonia staying at the Kokili villa in Lourdas. This was our first time to the island and we were not disappointed.
The villa was spotless on arrival with a welcome pack included, toiletries and sweets on each bed, which was a really nice touch. It was very well equipped, inside and out and the pool was crystal clear. The villa and pool were cleaned three times in our 11 day stay, which was more than we expected.
It would be very easy to just stay and relax around the pool all day, but there is so much to see in Kefalonia that I urge you to explore, there are lovely beaches, harbours, little villages with lovely restaurants everywhere. Our favourite restaurant in Lourdas was the Andromeda which is about half a mile from the villa and well sign posted, we went there three times and all meals were delicious with a fantastic view and welcoming staff.
All in all a fantastic holiday, totally relaxing and we hope to return to Kefalonia in the future.
We had a girly holiday for my '' 60th '' The villa was everything we hoped for , there was five of us and had plenty of room ,the en suite s were lovely too,everything was cleaned to a very high standard. We had a super welcome pack left for us which was great and the pool was checkedand cleaned twice while we were there . The only downside was that you really need to hire a car as you are very high up and isolated without transport ,although the local supermarket was very helpful and delivered our shopping .
We had a wonderful holiday at this villa. The accommodation is spacious and well maintained. The owners are there to deal with any issues. There are several supermarkets close by with some excellent eateries within walking distance and a sandy beach for sea swimming. The only draw back was no wifi when we were there but still gets five stars.
