Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a quick e-mail to tell you that we had a really enjoyable holiday at your beautiful Villa Lithia. It was perfect for our family of six and the sun shone throughout the week. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay in the villa again and will happily pass on the details of the villa to our friends.

A wonderful stay at Villa Lithia - thank you so much for having the foresight and creativity to plan such a lovely villa in such a wonderful location! It was everything I had hoped it would be and suited us down to the ground. What an amazing view!!

Crosskey Family August 2013



We had an absolutely lovely stay at Villa Lithia. The location of the villa was just superb (breathtaking views) and the Villa itself is lovely - very spacious and the swimming pool is fantastic. I do hope to be back!

Wonderful villa in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lithia is lovely, the facilities are excellent and it is in a beautiful position with fantastic views and convenient also to get to local beaches and restaurants too, either in nearby villages or in Fiscardo where there is a larger selection of restaurants in the harbour area. There is a small supermarket nearby and larger ones in nearby Fiscardo too, which is about 15 minutes drive away. The villa is kept very clean and the pool cleaned regularly too. We would definitely recommend Villa Lithia to our family and friends and most certainly will be returning. Bob was wonderful and made booking this villa very easy, he was so helpful. He also helped us sort out a hire car too which was great and gave us some recommendations for local beaches, restaurants etc too, which we found very useful.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at Lithia and perhaps the best so far. The property probably has the best views in Cephalonia down across the pine forests and across the channel to Ithaca. You can spend the whole day watching Ithaca change as the sun moves across the sky.

The villa is beautifully appointed and very well equipped. There is even Wi-Fi. The bedrooms are cool (air-conditioned) and the whole property clean and tidy. There is a twice weekly maid service with fresh sheets and clean towels.

The pool area is private and sheltered and a real suntrap.

Location is superb with a 10 minute drive to the beautiful harbour of Fiskado which has a wealth of Tavernas, restaurants and shops. You are also within 20minutes of all of the best beaches at the north of the island.

The owners, Bob and Anne Marie are fantastic. they sorted out hiring a yacht and the Marine Adventure trip (look on Trip Adviser-it's brilliant).

We travelled as a party of 6 with three children and a grandmother. The annex which is separate from the main house but equally as well fitted out, was perfect for the mother in law.

I cant recommend Lithia enough. The only problem is that you have to return home and leave it all behind. I have been depressed since. We have already booked a week next year.

Unforgettable and addictive

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this villa and we will be coming back! Already booked for next year. The villa itself is lovely and we like the little pool house - very handy for a teenage boy! the property was beautifully clean, the gardens lovely and in keeping with the surroundings and the pool much bigger than most rented holiday villas. But all this pales into insignificance when you se the view. It is breathtaking - at its most beautiful in the early morning but gorgeous all day - watch the boats in the water and plan a stroll down to Fiskardo. The local beaches are wonderful - stony but the water is SO clear, the snorkelling fantastic. Favourites are Jerusalem and Emplisi - you must try the taverna at Jerusalem. the owners are friendly, helpful and very responsive to any queries.

A scenic gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing 10 days in villa Lithia. Bob and Annmarie provided us with really useful information regarding the villa and the surrounding areas, and their restaurant and cocktail bar recommendations were excellent. We were a short 15 minute drive to Fiskardo, where we received friendly welcomes in every place we visited. The villa itself was extremely private and secluded and the sunrise from the villa truly magical. We would highly recommend hiring a boat for the day from Fiskardo boat hire in the harbor. We took ourselves off to many secluded private coves and experienced the clearest blue sea to snorkel in! The location of the villa is perfect in which to explore this wonderful island and there is so much to experience if you can drag yourself away from relaxing beside the pool! We will definitely return some day and would recommend the villa to friends and relatives.

Look no further....

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our second stay ay Lithia. There simply is no where else to stay on this Island. The villa is beautifully maintained with comfortable beds and excellent air conditioning. Kitchen is well equiped and there is WiFi and a good TV/DVD sytem a necessity fior the children. Its located in a quiet village in the hills above Fisfkado. The views are breathtaking and it would be easy to spend you entire holiday gazing across to Ithaca and beyond to the haunting mountains of the Greek mainland. The colours chnage continously and sunrise over Ithaca is spectacular.

The property has a useful annex which is self contained and equally well maintained.

It's a ten minute drive to bustling Fiskado which is a beautiful harbour town with many restaurants and shops. The town has a fantastic atmosphere and there can be no better place to people watch. There are excellent beaches nearby, our favourite is Foki just ten minutes down the hill. A shallow bay with olice trees running down to a claen and pebbled beach. Crystal clear waters and excellent snorkelling. Brilliant little Taverna across the road ideal for lunch and a supply of beer.

The villa has an excellent pool and plenty of terraced area to eat and relax.

We have been coming back to Keffalonia on and off for 20 years but Lithia is the best accomodation we have had. So much so that we have already booked again for 2016. It is ideal for couples, familes or other groups. the owners are great-very friendly and willing to help. They sorted out a yacht charter and various other activities efficiently and without any fuss.

total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location with views of Ithica and other islands. The resident cat Ginga was a perfect host as well. The location was also perfect for evening visits to Fiscado to watch the world go by in the various restaurants or bars around the marina. Will be back in 2015

Location

From the Owner

Annmarie and Bob fell in love with Kefalonia on a holiday to Fiscardo in 1995. They loved the island so much that they bought the land and had Villa Lithia built as a holiday home. It has been their much loved family home to them over the past 12 years. The view every morning still takes one's breath away, the tranquil setting in the hamlet of Katsarata amongst the olive trees has never been spoiled. Kefalonia is an unspoiled haven. The people are wonderful. The beaches are fantastic. It is truly Greek, but with a slight cosmopolitan twist. Annmarie and Bob now reside back in the UK and all banking transactions are conducted in GBP via a Barclays Bank plc UK. They would like all to enjoy their privately owned piece of paradise.
