About Richard Guttfield

I have always loved Kefalonia and have been visiting the island for more than 20 years now. I live in Tring in Hertfordshire and have a lovely daughter you also enjoys visiting Kefalonia with me.

Richard Guttfield purchased this villa in 2016

Why Richard Guttfield chose Pesada

Villa Tychia is in a great location, it's very peaceful, has beautiful views of the countryside, the sea and the mountains behind. Tychia is a beautiful Villa only a short drive from the airport. It really is a home from home and beautifully appointed, I think you will agree that Tychia is the perfect place to relax and take in the charms of the island.

What makes this villa unique

There are some beautiful walks from the Villa through meadows and down to the port which makes it a great location for anyone who loves scenic locations. I have stayed at many Villas in Kefalonia and Tychia really stood out as the ideal Villa and perfect location for seeing the island.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We booked this holiday for Nikki’s 40th birthday and had a fantastic time in true Mamma Mia style! Loved the island and are all very sad to leave.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in a few Villas over the years, Villa Tychia is right up there on the top of our list. Excellent accommodation, beautifully furnished to a high standard. The extra touches like the extensions in bedrooms to accommodate UK electrical appliances were very useful.

This was our first visit to Kefalonia, and I'm sure it won't be our last. A beautiful Island which we loved exploring, even if the roads were excessively windy at times! The people are extremely friendly and welcoming where ever you go.

Tychia was so peaceful, there was no option but to relax. We visited the winery in the village on our first evening, where we chose the plate of food to go with the drinks we had chosen, a very enjoyable evening, and within walking distance of the Villa.

As well as exploring the island we had some lazy times by the lovely private pool, which was regularly cared for over our week by the lovely "pool man".

The excellent information and recommendations supplied by the owners prior to our departure made planning our holiday extremely stress free and seamless.

We all had a lovely time at VillaTychia, and without exception wished we had booked two weeks! One of the best holidays we have had.

With many thanks to The Crossley family for their help and guidance in creating a very special holiday.

Absolutely stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tychia is absolutely stunning, we stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed every second. The villa really is home from home, the owners have thought of everything , the pool and gardens are fantastic, my children spent hours in the pool and playing round the garden. The villa was exceptional clean and well maintained. The location is so idyllic with beautiful views of the mountains infront and the sea from the patio and balcony. Lynn and Andy, the owners were so helpful from the start, nothing was to much bother for them, they sent us lots of information about the Island and the villa before we arrived. This villa really was perfect and we have had an amazing time, thank you to the owners for sharing their luxurious villa with us. We will be back

I have never written a review following a holiday before be it at a hotel or villa but felt having spent such a wonderful week at Villa Tychia it might help others make a decision to stay here.

We drove to the villa from the airport having been given great directions to follow by Lynn and arrived late afternoon, at first I was worried the villa seemed a little remote but within minutes felt very at home. It is so peaceful with beautiful views across the valley and out to sea.

The villa is very well equipped and comfortable with a fantastic pool and lovely gardens and a swing that our 4 year old loved.

The island is lovely, with great restaurants, beeches and very friendly people.

It is the first time we have been away and really did not want to come home, we had a fantastic relaxing week and would not hesitate to return to the island and Villa Tychia.

Many thanks Lynn and Andy

5 Stars all the way. A defifite recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our thanks go out to Andy and Lynn for allowing us to share their superb Villa Tychia and also for the interest and care they took from the outset to ensure our stay was just perfect.

Directions they supplied for getting to the villa from the airport were perfect; we arrived at the villa without taking one wrong turn and within 20 - 25 minutes from leaving the airport.

Car is essential

As soon as we arrived and stepped inside the villa we knew we had made the right choice and immediately felt at home. What a fantastic location with a view over the olive groves across to the ocean, tranquil, this place is just peace on earth.

This villa is immaculate, spacious and comfortable with all the facilities you would ever need, including dishwasher and washing machine, all bedrooms with en suite another bonus.

Another fantastic touch is the wine rack, FULLY STOCKED, Use on a help yourself and replace basis, genius idea, Andy and Lynn really have thought of everything.

Gardens are immaculately tended and a BBQ too, great pool and cleaned regularly by the pool man.

If you just want to chill and relax, no doubt this is the place, if you want to explore the island this is a great place to start from. Set in the village of Pessada only a 15 minute walk to a choice of beeches. Beautiful Must places we visited, Myrtos Beech, Poros, Sami, Skala, Assos and Fiscardo, all are stunning.

Argostoli the capital is a 10 minute drive away, a great place to spend a couple of hours have a coffee and look over the harbour, watch fishermen tending their catch or look in awe at some of the yacht’s. If you want to browse or buy, a fantastic range of shops.

Throughout Kefalonia we found the locals friendly and cheerful, nothing was to much trouble.

Our thanks also go to Debbie and Steve the managing agents, Debbie made sure we were settled and all was OK and provided a maid service a couple of times a week, Debbie also proved a fountain of knowledge regarding the island with lots of useful information.

A definite recommend.

Kefalonia & Villa Tychia May 2013

  • 5 of 5

We were very much looking forward to the delights of Kefalonia, and the promises of the Villa Tychia. We were not in the least disappointed by either, but more especially from the fantastically well appointed villa with great facilities to a very high standard. The location, albeit a sleepily coastal hollow on the south of the island, was idyllically quiet, breathtaking ocean and mountain views, with easy access to all amenities with the much used hire car.

Thanks to Lynn's uber-organisational skills, we were armed with a great pre-holiday information booklet, and upon arrival, we found that the villa information pack was a god-send for hunting out great places to eat and drink.

The property managers Debbie & Steve were extremely helpful and the welcome meeting was very timely and informative.

We we were all struck by the smiling faces and offers of assistance everywhere we went. All of the restaurant / taverna recommendations lived up to their promises, with a special mention to the Avithos Preview, The Castle 'Cafe'. We added our own new recommendation, "Dum Spiro's Spero" at Svoronata (on the airport road), where the welcome from Spiros and his wife, and the food at were second to none. Although there are no views, it was an easy drive from the Villa and was recommended by Vicki at the (then closed for refurbishment) Casa Grec in Argostoli. We also tried a 'posh' Gyros / kebab restaurant on the square in Agrsotoli called Panik, and we all thoroughly enjoyed a table full of meze one lunchtime

On our days out taking in the sights of the Island we visited Samos Town (where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed), the beautiful Port of Fiskado (expensive but very up market), the village of Assos (great cafe's), and of course the famous Myrtos Beach. It is worth watching the film "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" before you visit these places, but if you don't there's a copy in the villa - highly recommended.

In summary we all had a fantastic 10-day wind down away from the challenging UK weather and work. The Villa Tychia was faultless, well built and maintained with every attention to detail considered. The Barbecue was a little temperamental due to the wind conditions, but great nonetheless.

Our heartfelt thanks to Lynn and Andy for sharing their wonderful Villa with us, and We look forward to returning in the very near future, for some more R&R (and possibly less Triathlon training for Mick & Fiona the next time!!!)

Pessada is a traditional, unspoiled village in Kefalonia which sits on the coastline of South West Kefalonia. Despite being only 15 minutes drive from the airport, it is incredibly quiet and peaceful. Pessada is surrounded by natural beauty, with spectacular views of Lourdas bay to the South, the island of Zakynthos on the distant horizon, and a backdrop which is dominated by the highest peak in the Ionian, Mount Ainos. This dramatic scenery, coupled with tranquility of Kefalonian village life, make it the perfect location for a luxury villa. The small secluded bays of Pessada are within 10-15 minutes walk from the Villa. Facilities within the village are limited, although there is a very small shop and two local tavernas. Car hire is highly recommended to explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia and to visit the local supermarkets and many excellent tavernas, all within a few minutes drive of the villa. The main town of Argostoli is also just a short distance away.
