Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Minies - Villa Zephyros

3 Bedroom villa, sleeps 6

Villla Zephyros is a luxury, 3 bedroom villa in an enviable position, it is only a few hundred metres from the beautiful beaches of Minies and Ammes. It stands in mature gardens, and has a great outside entertaining/BBQ area, positioned beside the large swimming pool. (29ft x 10ft). The villa has free wifi and there is also a roof terrace to make the most of the wonderful views. The villa is set beside a large vineyard, adding to the peaceful atmosphere enjoyed here. A 5 minute walk to the beach enables guests to totally relax in every way. It is equipped to the highest standards, with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the 4th bedroom is on the lower ground floor of the villa. It has a fully fitted modern kitchen, and internal and external dining areas. The villa is ideally situated as it is away from the hustle and bustle but has facilities such as mini markets, tavernas etc which are close by. The busy resort of Lassi with a wide range of water sports is a 5 -10 minute drive away and the main town of Argostoli is a 10 - 15 minute drive away. There is also a personal chef available on request to make your holiday extra special.

A car is recommended so that you can make the most of seeing the beautiful island of Kefalonia and experience some of the excellent local food and wine the tavernas have to offer. On your arrival at the villa the property manager will visit you to show you around the villa and to give you some useful tips on where to eat, the best beaches, best places to visit etc. The property manager is on call 24 hours a day to offer you peace of mind during your stay at the villa.

We also offer a personal chef service. Our chef will visit you at the villa and prepare a first class meal in your kitchen. You can either choose to watch and maybe learn a thing or two, or you can relax around the pool while the chef does all the work. The dining area will be prepared and you will be served either inside, or outside, once you have finished your meal, the table will be cleared, the dishes washed and the kitchen left as it was found. For further details contact us by e-mail or telephone (details are on the contact page).

About Angela Hitchen

The owners Andrew and Caroline North live in Cambridge and both have Greek connections. Andrew's father was from Kefalonia and Caroline has friends and family in the Peloponnese and Athens. They both speak Greek and love the Greek language and culture. They spend about 6 weeks at the villa every year and plan to retire there eventually.

Why Angela Hitchen chose Minies

The owners chose Minies because of its location which offers everything you could possibly want. Convenience as it is close to the main town, popular resorts and the airport. Privacy and seclusion as it is just a few minutes' walk from safe, quiet beaches. The owners chose the villa because of its convenient lay out, lovely pool, gardens and outside entertaining space. It is perfect for holidays with family and friends.

Beautiful villa in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the villa. Everything was as described and the rooms were all beautifully furnished. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the fantastic pool and barbecue area and also spent many happy hours at the local beach -which was within easy strolling distance of the villa. There are lovely places to eat close by and Argostoli, a great place to do some shopping, is only a short drive away. All in all, the villa and location provided everything we needed for a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Thank you, we hope to return very soon.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

arrived to find everything was as described. Clean spacious and light throughout. I especially liked the pool area with outside BBQ, perfect for entertaining.It was a good base to see the Island from, we did a few day trips to Fiskardo, Sami and Skala. The longest journey was 2 hours so easily doable in a day. It's close to the airport so easy to get to, with a small beach close by, had everything we could ask for. Perfect holiday home and destination. Hope to come back soon!

Perfect place to relax- with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property clean tidy and great pool and BBQ area to relax- like a home from home with TV, broadband and enjoyed listening to Music by the pool while enjoying some sunshine!

Ideal for family or friends to getaway away from the hustle and bustle! As is in a secluded picturesque corner of the island-Car recommended to visit island and town or cycle along the coast to enjoy a stunning view to the local taverna.

Hope to return next year.

Spacious villa. Very well maintained premise

  • 5 of 5

We loved the atmosphere and the good vibrations of the place. The villa and all the area around are very well maintain. The pool is very clean and the service is in high level. The children loved the place and all the children rated it as 10! The manager of the place gave us a family welcome feeling and a great hospitality. We had a wonderful time!

fantastic holiday.. Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 7 day stay at this villa.

The villa is well kept, comfortably furnished and maintained throughout the week by very helpful and friendly managers ( it was cleaned a couple of times, the pool was cleaned and topped up every other day, and the Gardner came once to keep the lawns and flowers well trimmed.) Angela, the manager was very helpful when we arrived, advising of the best place to shop, visit etc, and helping with a few minor emergencies we had during the vacation.

There is very fast broadband, and a small TV / DVD player. Listening to the radio via the Internet was bliss.

The villa is near the airport, but flights are very infrequent ... Maybe 2 or 3 a day, 7 or 8 on one busy day.

It is very easy to get to the Island capital ... About a 15 minute drive. Supermarkets are about 20 minutes away. You will need a car as the villa is isolated.

Would love to revisit one day.

For those who prefer to relax in the comfort of the villa during the evening, why not spoil yourself with a visit from our personal chef, Viva!

You can choose as many courses as you like, each mouth watering course will be served to you and Viva even does the washing up before she leaves, prices are cheaper than taverna rates and the experience is amazing!!!!
