Updated: 12-Nov-2016
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.

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.

Martine from Horsham

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.

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.

Perfect villa for a perfect Island.

  • 5 of 5

This villa was above and beyond our expectations. It was like home from home, extremely clean and spacious. The pool and gardens immaculate. Superb location and peaceful. Dennis, our host, fantastic. Upon my arrival home I discovered I had left, believe it or not, most of my clothes in the villa!!!! After a call to Dennis, it was all packed up and promptly returned to me, he would not accept my offer of payment either.We were reluctant to leave this beautiful villa and we will definitely be returning.

This was our first visit to Kefalonia and will definitely not be our last. The Villa Asterea was excellent not only in a superb location, but was all we had hoped for and a bit more. We were made very welcome and well looked after by our host Dionisios whom we called Dennis. We would thoroughly recommend this villa if you are considering travelling to Kefalonia.

Comfortable, spacious, clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa, with a high specification and spacious rooms.

We were greeted by the owner's father Dionisios who explained where everything was. We were grateful for a Welcome pack of essential items such as tea, coffee, milk, fruit juice and beer. The villa pool and garden were clean and well maintained. Dionisios came every couple of days to keep the garden and outside area tidy. The inside was cleaned by an English couple every five days. The pool was cleaned every two days at around 7am.

It has a good kitchen area for a holiday villa, with a kettle, toaster, coffee machine, microwave oven, cooker, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. There are enough crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils, although a second chopping board and better kitchen knives would be very useful. There is a washing machine in a room around the back of the house. Wi-fi is also provided (once we had figured how to get it working) along with a TV and DVD player, and a small collection of DVDs. Air conditioning is included, but we didn't need it at the time of year we went. There's a sturdy barbecue outside too, which we did use a couple of times. The pool area is at the front of the house, but is above road level so you are not overlooked. There is also a pleasant garden with banana trees.

The bedrooms each have an good quality en-suite bathroom, and there was plenty of hot water for showers after a day of sunbathing.

Off-road car parking is available, on the steep slope up to the house.

The villa is Located in the village of Ratzakli near Skala, next to other villas on a steep hill with a partial view out to sea. Kaminia Beach at the bottom of the hill is a sandy beach that goes out very gently to sea.

We arrived in early May when the tourist season was just starting up, so the taverna and snack bars on the local beach weren't open at first but, were getting going by the time we left. It is a short drive to either Skala with many restaurants on the main street and waterfront, or Katelios where there are several wonderful seafood restaurants and cafe bars on the beach. It is possible to walk to Katelios along the beach and over the headland. There are also some small supermarkets in Skala along with a couple of bakeries.

This is a comfortable, spacious, clean and well maintained villa, in a great location, and we thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks stay there.
