About Lida Kougianou

Though I was born in Athens, I am a half Kefalonian and have spent my childhood holidays on this beautiful island. I always loved this place, its stunning natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the people. I was lucky being able to turn my passion into a business and set up an agency specialized in lovely, exclusive Holiday Rentals in Kefalonia.

“Kefalonia Holiday Homes”, operating since 2000, is by now successfully established. My team and I travel around the island and carefully select beautiful places to stay, in unique and calm locations, highly equipped and beautifully furnished, providing all comfort and privacy you look for in your holidays.

We know personally all properties and their owners. So, we are able to answer your every question and make sure, the accommodation you choose, is the right one for you.

Our services include:

- Quick response to your enquiries (within 24 hours at the latest, mostly much earlier).

- Reliable and helpful answers regarding the property, its equipment, distances and the area (due to personal knowledge of the island and the properties)

- Flexibility (wherever possible) regarding changeover days, duration of stay, change of booking dates, persons, etc.

- Information and assistance by planning your travelling (taxi transfers, information on reliable car rental companies, ferry schedules, reservation for ferries, etc.)

- Instant and efficient support during your stay in Kefalonia

Just get in touch by email or by phone and start creating your unforgettable holidays in Kefalonia

Fabulous villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Being a new property there was no historical customer feedback to consider when choosing this property as a base for our main holiday of the year. This however was not a problem as the villa and surroundings more than met the description given on the owners website.

Briefly, the villa itself was immaculate, with a high specification modern, clean interior. Exterior was marvellous too, very private with many different areas to enjoy and of course a super pool. Owners provided exceptional service, very genuine and generous - many thanks Elini :-)

The town of Agia Effimia is lovely, with a fine range of tavernas and a genuine Greek atmosphere. Locals very warm and welcoming providing for some lovely evenings out. The wider surroundings of Kefalonia are absolutely stunning! Fantastic coastline, super beaches & beautiful countryside.

Hope to return some day soon and would gladly recommend this property to others.

Beautiful villa and place

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely welcome from Eleni on our arrival, she was so helpful and made our stay so much better. The villa is beautiful, very modern, spacious and has everything you would need. The location of the villa is perfect, it takes only 5 minutes to walk to the main town with restaurants and shops.

We got married whilst in Kefalonia and Eleni kindly left us a card and present to congratulate us. It was a lovely touch! Can't recommend this villa enough, we will definitely stay again.

Thank you again
