Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to write to say how much we loved villa Stephania and

enjoyed our holiday in Kefalonia.

The owners were waiting for us, they were very friendly and attentive.

They were always around and about if needed, without being intrusive.

What a lovely couple. The villa was stunning, beautifully kept, with

everything one could need. Clean and fresh bedding and towels after

only 3 days was a nice surprise ( although not expected) also the

welcome pack of bread, wine etc was a real help too. It is situated so

centrally that it made exploring the island very easy. We just wished

we could have stayed longer, it was perfect snd we were very sad to leave.

This house is absolutely amazing! We were greeted by the owner who was welcoming and cares for the house immaculately. He even had some groceries ready for us! The grounds, grass, flowers, and fruit trees were like no other rental home in all of Greece. The pool and patio had lovely views of the mountains and we found it to be the most relaxing of any villa or hotel we have stayed at in the Greek islands. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house is very well equipped. The location was also excellent. It was 5 minutes to Agia Efimia with many nice restaurants, it was also 5 minutes to the famous Myrtos beach. We very much enjoyed driving the scenic 30 minutes to fiscardo which had lovely restaurants and nice upscale shops. Rental villas are very rarely as nice as the pictures, but this one is even more stunning than the pictures could possibly convey! We can't recommend this home enough!

Our favourite villa in Kefalonia

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to VIlla Stefania and we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Kefalonia as it feels like home. The villa itself is beautifully presented and the gardens lovingly tended. It is surrounded by hills and very peaceful a perfect base from which to explore the island from. The sunsets from the villa are stunning and it is often hard to tear yourself away to visit the many high quality tavernas in the nearby harbour town of Agia Efemia. The pool with the pergola at its side make staying at this villa very relaximg. The interior of the villa is presented ti a very high standard and as such it has a very homely feel that makes it very easy to spend time there. This will undoubtedly not be our last visit to VIlla Stefania as staying anywhere else in Kefalonia would be unimaginable. If you choose to stay here you will not be disappointed and will be given a very warm kefalonian welcome upon your arrival.

My friends came to Kefalonia for the first time this year and we found this beautiful Villa and had such an amazing time!! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool of course, the closeness to town and beaches, the cleanliness and wonderful owners who were always available and around for anything we needed. We used the grill and had a wonderful afternoon at the house with my cousins and their children who not only loved the pool but the pool table in the basement. I can't wait to come back next year with my family!!

A truly lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Our villa was just lovely, set on the outskirts of a quiet village surrounded by beautiful views of the mountains. The villa itself is homely, very nicely decorated and very well maintained. The pool area is great, a good size pool, kept very clean and surrounded by a lovely garden with roses, orange and lemons trees.

We had a very warm welcome from the owner, who kindly left some provisions (bread, marmalade, apricots, milk, water ..)

The location on the Island itself we found perfect, few minutes by car to Agia Effimia for a good choice of restaurants for dinner, in a lovely setting. Fiscardo, Assos, Argostoli and Antisamos beach all within a reasonable drive.

We loved beautiful Kefallonia and the villa was a perfect home for the week.

Would highly recommend.
