About the property

Villa in Ratzakli, Near Skala, Kefalonia, Ionian Islands, Greece - Peaceful Location, 5 minute walk to Kaminia Beach

Modern and bright, this attractive villa is located amid quiet, semi wooded countryside in the Ratzakli area of Kefalonia. It enjoys picturesque views from its pretty outdoor areas. The villa rests in a peaceful location near the villages of Skala (3Kms) and Katelios (3.5Kms), also a short drive from Kaminia Beach (700m) where idyllic sands and sparkling seas await. The charming peach-painted exterior gives way to a fresh, airy interior, with an expansive sitting-kitchen-dining room on the ground floor. The sleek kitchen is superbly equipped, featuring a full dining table. The adjoining living area is comfortably furnished with sofas and a large screen TV. Full glass doors lead to the enticing and amply sized poolside terrace, which enjoys the sun for most of the day and looks out over trees to provide the perfect peaceful backdrop for sunbathing and al-fresco meals. The three bedrooms are finished in attractive style, each with ensuite bathrooms and balconies. The master suite looks out to the Ionian Sea with views of Zakynthos (Zante).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was perfect for us. The building and location was perfect, the owners were wonderful and attentive and the holiday was fantastic. We will probably book next year as we felt so comfortable. We have 3 teenage girls and they loved it and have asked us to go back - the pool, nearby sandy beach, luxury accommodation (with 3 en suites) allowed them to relax as well as the town of Skala 5 mins drive with lovely tavernas and friendly people.

A fabulous holiday, very relaxing location. The Villa was fantastic as was the pool. The nets across the doors and windows did a great job of keeping mosquitoes out!

Many thank to the Villa staff for all their hard work during our stay.

Excellent villa,lovely pool, terrace, local beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2017. This is an excellent villa with a lovely pool. It was spotless and very well equipped. Aristides, its owner, went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The villa is 10 min walk down to a perfect family beach and excellent (if a bit pricey) bar and taverna. Its a 20 min walk back up to the villa.

From the beach you can walk 20-30mins round the shore to the neighbouring village of Katelios with its many tavernas. Alternatively, it is a 10 mins drive away. A 10 minute drive in the other direction is the seaside town of Skala with beach, supermarkets and more tavernas.

Very good property. We were very comfortable and secure. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The on line photos don't do the property justice. The rooms are larger and we'll furnished. Three good sized ensuite rooms. The upper floors have lovely balconies. The pool area is good with large umbrella over a six seater table. Inside living space is good and aircon works well. Kitchen might benefit from a juicer or toastie maker but that's all pretty minor. Overall very well equipped. The whole property is very well maintained and secure. The location was good for us, quiet and private. A car is needed to get around the island but you can walk to the beach and local restaurants. Overall very good

Perfect villa for a relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this villa. As usual the villa manager Dionisios greeted us when we arrived. He and his crew keeps the villa, garden and pool in a great condition. If you need anything just ask!

The villa is loacated in quiet surroundings near Kamini beach. Kamini beach is very family friendly. We recommend driving alongside the beach road until you get to the Anemos beach bar for the best beach and the best food!

The villa is also a short drive from Skala with lots of shops and excellent restaurants. You can have a lovely holiday just staying in the area but we recommend having a car to go exploring all the hidden gems of the Island. The island has so many beautiful and diverse beaches all with this amazing crystal clear blue waters.

I wouldn't be surprised if we returned yet again. And if we do we'll certainly stay at Villa Asterea again!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Asterea was perfect for our family of 6 (Mum, Dad, adult daughter, 11 year old son, Nan and Grandad). In a lovely quiet location, close to a great sandy beach. Skala is only 10 minutes away by car and has a great beach, restaurants, supermarkets, etc. Aristides met us on arrival and regularly checked in on us to make sure everything was ok during our 2 week stay. The villa has all the mod cons including wifi, is clean, spacious and well maintained. A real bonus is having 3 en-suite bathrooms - no queue for the shower! Great place for a relaxing stress free holiday, we loved it so much we are going back this summer.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at villa Asterea, and the property has been perfect for our family of mom,dad,grandmother and 3 children. The owners father keeps an eye on the property and takes good care to ensure a plesant stay. The overall quality of the maintenance and cleaningservice of both villa and pool are of a high standard. And we recomend this villa for a quiet, relaxing and troublefree stay at the beautiful island of Kefalonia.

The closest beach is Kaminia beach (walking distance) which is in our opinion the best beach for children on the island.

We might even return for a 3rd stay.

The best of island life

  • 5 of 5

We're a young family, with three children aged 10, 6 and 3. Villa Asterea was the perfect holiday home. So much space, everywhere. Perfectly clean. Everything is so solid and works so well. The pool and the balconies are a treat. Aristides met us at the gate with a big natural smile, and from this moment on we all smiled all week long. We'll remember the laughter and the lovely days playing games on the terrace and swimming in the pool. The beach - which is wonderfully natural and safe for children - is a short walk away and Katelios a short drive. Slightly further afield, we loved Kuoni Beach and had great fun in Scala too. So thanks Villa Asterea and thanks Aristides for a great time in Kefalonia. We'll be back soon, and we'd recommend this villa to everyone.
