Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful villa in a quiet place



The first two weeks of June 2014, we have spent in this beautiful villa with a lovely pool and garden.

The villa is accessed via a right of way Divarata Agia Effimia, 1250 m after Divarata (just after the ruin) the country road and then turn left at the fork, then you stand after 100 m at the entrance gate of the villa. There are signs at the junction along the main road.

Regina was already waiting for us, the villa was recently renovated and newly constructed pool.

The fridge was well filled and there was plenty of fruit, what a hospitality!

The villa looks beautiful from the inside out with an eye for detail, everything neat and clean.

The villa has two lockers. Twice a week the villa and the pool was cleaned and provided with new linens.

The garden is beautifully landscaped with lots of nice seating areas. Outside we could enjoy breakfast with the distant view of the bay at Agia Effimia. In the evening everything was magically lit.

The air conditioning worked well and the double (including hor mesh) shutters on the outside, we were able to keep the heat out well. Wi-Fi was excellent in all rooms Satellite TV.

Myrthos Beach is 4 km from the villa, beautiful beach with sand and pebbles, though the eatery and the sunbeds were only available in the 2nd week.

Agia Effimia is a small 5 km from the villa with several restaurants. (To Perasma Taverna at the harbor, we can recommend). Behind Sami is also a beautiful beach Anti Samos in a sheltered bay. The beach Petani Beach on the NW side of the peninsula is also recommended two restaurants, even more beautiful than Myrthos Beach. Sandy beaches are to be found in Lassi (Makris Galios) from the airport to Argostolion you get past it.

Kefalonia is a beautiful island not really touristy, except around the capital and a relatively unspoilt nature. We have a boat trip (day trip) made ??to Ithaca, highly recommended. Boat leaves from Agia Effimia. Nice places are Asos and Fiskardo and beyond, we have visited the underground lake and stalactite caves Melissani (Drogarati).

The villa is located 35 km from the airport, but you do despite the majority of good roads over an hour. There are two routes through the capital Argostolion and then along the bay to the north and the road through the mountains, the first piece is the same, go to Drapano the height of the cemetery straight instead of left, after 550 m turn left along the limestone quarry than you'll just south of Dilinata out. Drive through the village. Just outside Dilinata the road opens up and is excellent to ride right up to Divarata. At the intersection does not Divarata running-but equally sharp right towards Agia Effimia. At that point you'll come out when you take the coastal route.

excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was perfect. Very clean and modern rooms, nice pool, kids playgarden. All my family(My wife, my son and our dog) feel very happy during our stay in the house. Good location to explore northern half of the island and only 5min by car to Myrthos beach and Agia Efemia village with shops and restaurants.

Owners are very welcoming, kind and helpful ( I had issue with my car tyre and they fix the problem).

Very nice tavern near by in Makriotika.

Highly recommended property!!!

An Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

An amazing villa located in a quiet area with a great view of the mountains and sea. The host (Regina) was brilliant and welcomed us with a smile and a lovely hamper of food and when we left gave us a leaving gift. Lovely touches that made us feel so at home. The property has a great pool and BBQ and an area for kids to plays on swings etc. I would 100% recommend this property to anyone.

Amazing holiday. Beautiful views. Wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

We received a warm welcome to this beautiful villa with complementary wine and food. Friendly cleaners come twice a week. Reginas mother in law left fresh eggs for us and Regina made sure she came to see us before we left with gifts for not just the kids but me and husband too. The island is beautiful wherever you go with lots of mountains and crystal clear water on beaches. Regina hires out motor boats in the north of the island which was worth doing and a lovely day out. scuba diving 10 minute drive in lovely harbour area. A holiday we will remember in our later years. Thank you Regina.

Wonderful villa, stunning views, great location

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained villa with wonderful outside space and views. Located perfectly for visiting Assos, Fiscardo, Antisammos, Agios Efimia etc (definitely recommend hiring a boat off the owner in Fiscardo for a day exploring the beaches and coves) if you can drag yourself away from the pool. Owner and staff very helpful and great "welcome pack". Local restaurants and minimarket and Agios Efimia only 5 minute drive. Wonderful holiday and would definitely recommend Villa Regina.
