About the property

A Pair of Exquisite Villas above the Ionian Sea in Kefalonia – Cherished, Private Property for a memorable holiday

Between the misty mountains and breathtaking coastline of the island of Kefalonia stands two incredible sea-view villas: Villa Odysseus and Villa Penelope.

These two nearly identical villas sit side-by-side on the same secluded 4 acres, facing an unmatched view of the Ionian Sea. Rent one to sleep 4, or rent both to sleep 8 and share a holiday to remember.

Both villas have their own private swimming pool suspended above the sea. Each also has its own BBQ grill for a truly memorable alfresco meal.

Views To The Horizon

Take your place on the sea-view hillside, a peaceful and private location with uninterrupted views of the blue horizon. Close your eyes, feel the warm sun on your skin, and breathe in the sea air. Located at the end of a secluded road, you won’t hear any traffic here...just ocean breezes.

Then explore the terrain of this majestic Grecian island. Rent a jeep to see the rugged black fir forests and the wild horses that call these mountains home.

Or spend a scenic afternoon renting a small boat and travel to the serene Lefka Beach, located just under your cliff-side villa. Explore the dazzling sea caves via kayak, or take a short six miles drive to sunbathe on one of the most famous sandy beaches on the island, Lourdas Beach. A great beach for families, Lourdas features boat and canoe rentals, jet ski excursions, and more. Drive just two miles and swim in the sparkling waters of Koroni beach.

From the villa, drive 10 minutes to the Village of Lourdas, where you can savor delicious local fare and explore the colorful culture. Travel a little further to Argostoli, the energetic capitol 15-miles away where delicious food is around every corner as well, or take a leisurely winery tour. Come find your slice of heaven by the sea!

A Holiday to Remember

Kefalonia is gorgeous year-round. One of our favorite times of the year on the island is May or September, when the ocean breezes are calm and the temperature is just right. August is another lovely time to visit: take-in the gorgeous full, blue moon through your bedroom windows.

About Paraskevas Chionis

Just a few years ago, me and my family decided to build this villa on this lovely spot. We used to come to this land, gazing at the view, as it belonged to my father and my grand father.

Over the past few years that we’ve been renting this villa, we’ve met exciting people and made great friends. My family and me personally manage this property putting into it a lot of effort and our passion.

We are only genuine hosts, trying to share with our guests, our love for this place and the island, offering them everything we would like to have, in a home away from home.

What makes this villa unique

The privileged and peaceful location of the property, the picturesque surroundings with spectacular sea and mountain views, the privacy that provides make this villa an ideal destination for a romantic holiday or quality time with your family.

The villa is decorated with handmade pottery and paintings, gentle contribution of a dear friend of mine.

07/05/2018 Villa Odysseus

  • 5 of 5

We could not wish for a better holiday. From the warm welcome at the airport from our host Paraskevas nothing was to much trouble. The Villa and pool were beautiful extremely clean and well decorated with enough furniture for all our needs and comfort, plus a fully stocked fridge. The ocean views and sunsets were stunning and the surrounding area very quiet and peaceful apart from the sounds of House Martins and Swallows and the tinkle of sheep bells in the field nearby. Paraskevas was such a wonderful host very unobtrusive but on hand if you required help. We will return one day. Thank you Paraskevas.

Paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding villa, well furnished and spotless with fabulous views. The owner of the villa Paraskevas, lives nearby, he is an excellent host and nothing is too much trouble, he provided a fridge full of lovely food and drink, as well as various other little gifts. He is also very knowledgeable about the island, and its attractions. The villa is quite isolated so a car is necessary if you wish to visit the local tavernas. The renowned Lorraine's Magic Hill is a short drive away, and Fiscardo and Assos at the north end of the island are amazing places to visit , beautiful and full of atmosphere. The villa is set in a gated perimeter along with a twin villa and the owner's bungalow.

The two villas are completely private from each other.

We spent a wonderful relaxing week here and as well as visiting some really good tavernas, we also enjoyed some nights in, watching the sun go down as we dined. We would thoroughly recommend the villa and hope to go back soon.

A Fantastic Holiday Villa.

  • 5 of 5

A truly memorable holiday. For all the right reasons.

We stayed at Villa Odysseus which is first class. The Interior and exterior are finished to a very high standard. The villa is immaculate and spotlessly clean.

The pool and garden areas are beaautiful. Again, maintained to a very high standard. You can be assured of complete privacy and wonderful ocean views. The patio area above the pool has BBQ, eating and relaxing areas that are perfect for relaxing during the day. If it gets too hot, simply hit the loungers in the shade.

The position of the villa is very convenient for the airport (25 min drive) and Argostoli (25-30 min drive). Nearby villages are Lourdata (5 min drive), Kateleios (<10 min drive) and Skala (10 min drive). All have great restaurants and beaches. Kefalonia is a very beautiful island.

… and finally our host Paraskevas. He really looked after us during our stay. This included meeting us at the airport, arriving to a fully stocked refrigerator, advice and guidance on Kefalonia and regular treats.

Nothing was too much trouble. Paraskevas also has a great sense of humour and is very generous.

If you are looking for a luxury villa with beautiful views, an excellent host and conveniently situated, look no further.

Ευχαριστώ Paraskevas!

A luxury Villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 days in these two beautiful villas. We were a family of 8 and hired the both villas which were next door to each other and worked out perfectly. Paraskevas couldn't do enough for us, provided a large table and chairs to ensure we all eat together in the evenings watching the sun set. The pool was lovely and clean all the time, the main bedroom was ensuite and both bedrooms had a baIcony where you can see the sun rise and set each day. I can't wait to go back next year :-)

Outstanding Sea View Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding villa in all areas. We have visited a number of Greek islands over the last few years and our holiday at Villa Penelope has by far been the most relaxing. The Villa itself is in an amazing location, down a very well laid out concrete road to a beautiful cliff top with the only view being the Ionian Sea and a handful of yachts.

The pool, gardens and BBQ are highly well maintained and very luxurious. Paraskevas cleaned the area daily before we got up and ensured the high standards were upheld. The Villa itself is of a very high specification, the power shower, jacuzzi bath, luxury towels, fluffy slippers and bath and body lotion to name but a few. The kitchen facilities are fabulous, having a dishwasher certainly added to the relaxation.

However the overriding factor that made our holiday was the calm, professional manner of Paraskevas. Although his Villa is on site, he never intruded on our privacy but was always on hand whenever we required anything. His aim is to simply offer his service to ensure all our needs were met. We have never met such a kind and generous host.

We arrived to a fridge full of food, beer and wine, on our first morning he dropped off fresh bread and croissants. We were also treated to homemade pies and ice cream that his wife had made which were delicious. From guidance to the best restaurants, best beaches and even booking a taxi late at night, there was nothing more Paraskevas could do to ensure we had such a relaxing time. We can not rate this Villa highly enough, amazing location, clean and well equipped with the kindest, considerate, humorous host we have met.

Thank you Paraskevas for the honour of staying at the beautiful Villa Penelope.

Immaculate villa with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a villa in Kefalonia then look no further.

The villlas are maintained to a very high standard and the pool and grounds are immaculate. Both villas (along with the owner's villa), are within privately gated grounds and have stunning views across the clear blue Ionian Sea to Zante. Their location (between Lourdas and Skala) is perfect for exploring the whole Island with Argostoli about a 30 minute drive away.

We became very good friends with Paraskevas and his family during our stay. He goes way beyond expectations to ensure you have everything you could possibly want to enjoy your holiday. He is a true gentleman with a great sense of humour.

We are seasoned villa holidaymakers and these are by far the best we have ever stayed in. We shall be booking again in 2018.
