About Sophie

My name is Micheline, I am from Belgium and my husband is from the charming little hamlet of Divarata. After working for a long period in Brussels, we decided to come back to Greece, to rent out our family house and share this beautiful island with you.

However, we are not just here to rent you our villa, we also want to enable you to have the best holiday possible. Sophie, a friend of the family, is in charge of marketing and bookings.

She can use her excellent local knowledge to get competitive rates at a local car-hire company. She can also suggest local tavernas which serve authentic Greek food, give advice on where to go and what to see, propose Greek cooking lessons followed by dinner, boat hire companies...etc

As an archeologist, specializing in ceramics and mosaic techniques, both modern and ancient, I can offer you a unique introduction to these arts. Lessons can be tailored to both adults and children.

We sincerely hope that you will thoroughly enjoy your stay!!

Micheline & Sophie

Wonderful house, perfect setting and delightful hosts

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the house in August 2016 and had a simply wonderful 2 week holiday. We were two families (9 people) so used both sections but ate together in the main house. There is plenty of room, so much space to spread out and sit, relax or eat in different places depending on your mood or the temperature. The position of the house meant that it was never too hot as a lovely breeze came up the valley and through the house. The location was ideal - quiet, apart from chickens and dogs but I'm sure you get that everywhere - and perfect for accessing the far corners of the island - we did have a car for the whole 2 weeks and the owners recommended a local firm which was great. The local village is perfect with 3-4 restaurants and 2-3 shops with fresh bread daily. The owners were lovely, so hospitable and friendly - we even had a mosaic making afternoon one day which the kids (& adults) loved. The only negative were the mosquitos but again I guess you get them everywhere and it may be weather dependant. The villa has fly screens on all the bedroom external doors so you can keep the rooms as bug free as possible as well as aircon to keep it cool. We would highly recommend this clean spacious villa - oh and the pool is perfect too, a good size and well maintained!

Excellent villa in strategic position

  • 5 of 5

We were a big group of 11 people with 5 kids and all had our comfortable accommodation and our privacy. Further to be very close to Myrtos beach (only 3 minutes) the Villa is placed at 10 minutes driving from Agia Efimia, 20 minutes from Sami and Asos and max 30 minutes from all the nicest beaches in the north and west parts of the island, so we could easily visit all of them.

Courtesy and hospitality of Micheline and Divaris have been great.

Strongly recommended

Further Details:


Kefalonia, the island of honey and wine, lies opposite the mouth of the golf of Corinth just sixty miles south of Paxos.

Many of the island’s beaches are of fine golden sand which shelve gently under sparkling water making them ideal for children. Other beaches on the islandare of white, red and grey sand.

For the explorer, Cephalonia offers many ancient sites of unrivalled beauty. Venetian fortresses and monasteries; Byzantine churches containing their sixteenth century icons still in their original bright colours; underground Mycenaean tombs dating back to 1200 BC; the remains of a roman villa which houses four fascinating mosaics dating back to the second century AD; serene lakes surrounded by proud cypress trees; large caves incrusted with stalactites; and a host of small fishing villages and secluded coves. Mount Aenos, in the centre of the island, higher than any mountain in the British isles, looks down through thick pine forests to a luxuriant landscape of olive, cypress, orange, lemon, grape corn and wild lavender. Watersport facilities are available in most of the beaches. The many tavernas of the island serve an extensive range of delicious dishes which are exclusive to the island; The local wines are delightfully crisp.

Makris Yalos

Makris yalos is three kilometers from Argostoli and has one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the Ionian. The beach has watersport facilities, sunbeds and two beach bars. Makris yalos has the distraction of a popular resort with an extensive selection of tavernas, bars and shops. A short drive south of makris yalos leads to the beautiful beaches of Lourdas, Trapezaki and Agia Helis with their dramatic backdrop of Mount Aenos and foothills of olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees.
