FATHER TEDS is a small villa that makes a big impression. Stunning location.



Updated: 01-Feb-2016
Please watch video link to see why Father Teds is so special. CLICK 'Facilities'

after 'Facilities' go to bottom of page.

FATHER TEDS is a small villa in a very private and extraordinary location with stunning views described by a local architect as the best view on the Paliki Peninsula of Kefalonia. WE DO NOT ENHANCE OUR PHOTOS.

IF YOU WATCH the video link you will see the 180 degree uninterrupted view filmed from Father Teds. The village of Monopolata is seen below then looking out to the sea there are sailing boats and a cruise ship docked near the main town of Argostoli. On this side of the bay is Lixouri the second largest town. Beyond the sea you will see Mount Ainos at over 5000 feet and you can drive to the top of this mountain! Finally we pan towards the airport.

Father Teds is within walking distance of a taverna. The villa is ideal should you wish to get away to a very quiet location. It is close to Petani Beach recently voted the best beach on Kefalonia.

Father Teds can sleep 4 plus & we can supply a cot. (Double bedroom plus a self inflating double bed for living area).

Father Teds is next to an ancient water source providing excellent highly rated water.

There are extensive rugged grounds with unrestricted views.

The villa has a remotely controlled air fan and together with hill breezes and shaded areas it will help you keep cool if necessary.

This location is special and if you want to be away from the other tourists and be among the friendly locals at a budget price then Father Teds is ideal.

You will never forget the unspoilt panoramic view from the terrace.

We just don't take your rental money but we also help you plan your stay if required. We have the required EOT license (Greek Tourist Board).

About the Owner

We have rented out holiday property in the UK, France & more recently Greece for many years and we always have the properties to a standard, furnishing and equipment suitable for our own use. None of the properties were built or bought just to rent out like so many; they were purchased for our possible long term use at some stage in our lives. So until that happens they are made available for you to enjoy as well as us.

Please view our feedback to see what our visitors say.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The fact that we had one man stay at Father Teds last year before we advertised the property perhaps sufficiently comments before we have any feedback.

From the Owner

We were out on our motorbike, being tourists for once rather than just working on our garden or new projects and we turned a corner to see some 'for sale' boards and a small villa that is now called FATHER TEDS. We had little money to buy the property but the view is so unbelievable and rare that we drove immediately to find the agent and paid a deposit. We then had to mortgage our house to obtain the balance! The location is that special. As we already owned property on Kefalonia this extra purchase simply indicates just how special FATHER TEDS is. Quite magical.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Argostoli at 16 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Lixouri at 5 Kilometres Car: necessary


You will be in easy reach of numerous quiet superb beaches as car hire is recommended. There is a water park within easy reach.

Travel: There is a very pleasant journey from the airport to the villa either by road or by using the connecting ferry. You are far enough from the airport not to experience noise and fumes.

Distances: The villages of Monopolata and Rifi both with tavernas are walking distances and Lixouri town is a 12 minute drive.

Further Details: Lixouri will have everything that you might require and if it doesn't Argostoli is a short ferry trip across the bay. Two ferries usually run every half hour.

From the Owner

The location alone is enough for a very special holiday and there are two tavernas at a walkable distance. Lixouri is also a short car drive away. The sunset at the local Petani beach is very special. If you want to have noise and be amongst the tourists this is not for you. If you want to experience Greek life and pay non tourist rates in a very special location then book!

  • Notes on accommodation: The property has extensive rugged grounds but these on a fairly steep slope as this goes hand in hand with the view. There are shaded areas and the extensive terrace area provides views over the island. It is quite magical and watching the island villages lighting up in the evening is pretty special. Extremely quiet location. Outside: Extensive rugged grounds with steep slopes in places. This is a wild area. For the patio there is artificial grass and a BBQ. There is a sun sail to provide shade on the terrace. Cleaning / Towels / Linen Bathroom towels and linen are supplied plus beach towels. Property cleaned and made ready between rentals.
