About Catherine & Vitaly Kostenko

We have been going to Kefalonia on holidays for over 10 years. We feel it is by far the most beautiful of the Greek islands. Our dreams have finally come true with the purchase of our own villa. We do hope that our guests will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our villa and all that the island can offer.

A wonderful villa on the island of Kefalonia

  • 5 of 5

Villa Katya, a wonderful villa with a very well maintained garden and swimming pool in a peaceful and quiet environment. It's a very relaxing place with quite some nice spots in the garden.The villa is situated at a 10 minutes drive from the airport and located in such a way, that it is easy to visit the whole island. Inside the villa everything is well taken care of. It's a pity, that we never return to the same spot. This villa is in our long year's experience top three.

First visit to Kefalonia

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday on Kefalonia. The villa was very easy to find just 10 minutes from the airport. We didn't experience any aircraft noise being this close to the airport. Perfect peace and quiet.

The villa was superb clean, bright with all the facilities you need for a perfect holiday. Gardens and pool maintained daily. This villa is in an ideal location and an excellent base for touring the island.

We spent to weeks in the villa and would recommend it to all family and friends. The owners and the island team provide an excellent service and made our holiday very special. There is loads to do and see on the island or you can just relax in beautiful surroundings. Thank you Vitaly and Co we would definitely love to come back again. Maybe even next year.

Many thanks Mel & Dave

Just Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week in October 2014. Myself and my husband, my daughter and her husband and their children aged 2 and a half and 6 months. It was just gorgeous. The directions we were given were spot on and we arrived to an immaculate, welcoming property. The owners have thought of everything you would need to make your stay exceptional. You put your hand out for something , and it was there 😃

The beds were so comfortable and the provision of toys, DVD's, beach towels, linen and bath towels was so thoughtful.. This villa is immaculate and so well presented. We especially loved the outdoor space with a great pool, enough sun brolly' for us all and comfortable loungers. It was lovely to have greenery, bushes and a well tended garden around you rather than just hard landscaping . The villa is near the airport and Argostoli but we never heard a plane or much else other than the birds and church bells.This is a villa for all the generations and I will most definitely be booking again. Thank you K & V your beautiful property is a credit to you both

Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

The description of the Villa is completely accurate, and I must say that the owners thought of everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Villa is perfectly located, close to the airport and Argostoli, and in the same time secluded enough to provide privacy for the guests to enjoy. The children enjoyed the selection of board games and puzzles, books and DVDs. There was some problem with the internet connection, and it was solved in a matter of an hour.

We spent beautiful 10 days in Villa Katya, and would gladly return on another occasion.

Villa Katya was perfect for our week long stay. Despite being close to the airport it was very peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay and the villa had everything we needed. Loved the pool, the terrace for evening BBQs and relaxing on the sun beds. Our favourite beach Avithos is also the nearest - only a short drive away. We loved the two tavernas there too. We would recommend this villa to anyone. The owner (back in the UK) is also very friendly and helpful. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Kefalonia and it could not have been better. The villa is a short drive from the airport, beach, tavernas and local shop.

The villa is set in a peaceful location with its own lovely garden and pool. It is beautifully presented with everything you require for a self-catering holiday. There is plenty of room within the villa to easily accommodate a family without being on top of each other.

We are looking forward to returning next year for a longer stay.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary


Kefalonia boasts some of the best beaches in Greece. This villa is in an excellent location for exploring the many white sandy beaches to the south of the island. Only 10min drive away is Avithos Beach, Ammes Beach and Ai Helis Beach where you can snorkel or simply enjoy the crystal aquamarine sea. The well renowned Myrtos Beach with its brilliant white pebbles and dramatic coastline is well worth a visit (only 40min away). Our favourite is Lassi beach which again is only 10min away.


You can now fly to Kefalonia with all low cost budget airlines. Argostoli airport is only 10 minutes from the villa.


Argostoli town is only 10min drive and is a great place to visit with its shops, tavernas, marina, and sea front. If you are fortunate enough you can often see the turtles hovering around the fishing boats.

Fiscardo is also well worth a visit where you can enjoy a delicious meal from one of its many restaurants seated right by the waters edge (1hr 15 min drive).

If you want to see something different there is the Melissani underground lake and Dragorati Cave (45min drive).

Further Details:

This island offers you the variety and option of enjoying the experience of eating local greek cuisine in many different tavernas and restaurants or on the other hand, self catering. If you wish to eat in there are several good quality supermarkets within easy access. If you want to eat fish at its best then you can purchase freshly caught sea bream straight off the fisherman at Argostoli sea front on a daily basis. Argostoli also has some enviable fresh fruit and vegetable markets. Another option is to have your own private chef to cook for you at home.
