Further Details:

The village of Makriotika is situated 5km from the picturesque port of Agia Efimia, framed by high mountains, on a height of more than 200m. The Kefalonians call it "The balcony of Pylaros", as it offers, indeed, a fascinating view across the wide valley of Pylaros: the port of Agia Efimia, the sea, the surrounding high mountains and the small traditional villages. Across the water, you can see Ithaca and some days you can even make out the mountains of Peloponnes.

Makriotika is located in the centre of the island, and is thus an ideal base for exploring the island. Here you can taste the flavour of the authentic Greek life. A nice "Platia" (village square), small red-roofed houses with flower-filled terraces, a traditional cafe, a friendly tavern, a mini-market, a bakery, a school and, as in each Greek village, a church. In the summer, the Platia is filled with playing children, native and emigrant Kefalonians and tourists. There are numerous beaches closed to the villa offering opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving in the summer.

The location is also ideal for nature lovers and hikers. You can walk for example to Agia Efimia. You will pass through an old traditional village, above the valley of Pylaros and facing Agia Efimia and the sea. Or you can leave the main road and take one of the several paths going through the valley to Agia Efimia. You can also walk to the beautiful monastery of Themata (approx. 4 km) which offers spectacular views. A path from the monastery leads to the top of the wild mountain of Agia Dynati and its new aeolic power park, capable to cover big part of the island' s power needs. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to visit the Bavarian Horse Riding Stables in Sami (approx. 18 km from the villa) and take part in a horse ride, a completely different way of exploring Kefalonia, by following old donkey trails with wonderful views through olive groves and fruit orchards.

Booking Notes:

In order to guarantee your reservation a deposit of 30% is required at time of booking (by bank transfer). Final payment is due prior your arrival (by bank transfer).

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
We visited in early September and despite slight trepidation about the weather coming late in the season, we weren't disappointed at all.

From start to finish our break was perfect. Exceptional communication from Lida prior to our arrival, a wonderful welcome, beautifully manicured gardens and stunning views took our breath away from the beginning. We stayed in Villa Vounake which has lovely terraces, seatings areas to enjoy Al Fresco dining morning or evening, a lovely swimming pool and tastefully furnished rooms which make you feel right at home from the beginning.

A car is essential to enjoy the beauty of the island and Lyra Villas are the perfect place to do this from. Just 40 mins from Fiskardo via the mountain roads (a great way to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery Kefalonia has to offer), Assos is only 30 mins and well worth a visit for a taste of traditional Kefalonia. Closer to home, Agia Effimia is a pretty harbour with a selection of excellent restaurants and all the facilities you could need.

I can't recommend Lyra Villas highly enough - we will certainly be back!

Immaculate Villa

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful two week stay at this delightful villa. It was immaculately clean and simply but tastefully furnished. The different outside seating areas provided great variety and the pool was kept spotless. The villa is set in well maintained gardens and the owners' welcome pack was a real treat. Very well located for this part of the island with great access to a number of lovely beaches - the beach book in the villa was such a terrific idea! I would thoroughly recommend this quiet and peaceful villa for a truly relaxing break.

One of the Nicest Places I Have Stayed

  • 5 out of 5
I have been traveling to Greece for the last 15 years and have stayed at Lyra Villas 5 times. It is undoubtedly one of the nicest places I have stayed in all of Greece. Lida and Peter, the incredibly welcoming owners of the property, come from Germany (although Lida is Greek) and cater to exactly what any visitor looking for privacy, a well-stocked house and a beautifully-appointed property want. It is in the village of Makriotika and driving in there are beautiful, narrow winding streets. The main square of the village has a great authentic restaurant with delicious grilled meat. We loved the location in the hills because of the amazing views and it gets cool at night which is nice since its so hot during the day. Our house was probably a ten minute drive to the beach and if we didn't have the energy to go out we just stayed at the pool. The gardens are beautifully maintained and to top if all off, Lida and Peter are extremely helpful, giving a welcome basket with fresh bread, eggs and wine and always offer good recommendations of places to eat or go the beach. Overall, it is a very tastefully-appointed place with all the amenities that my family and I were looking for in a vacation home while also providing an authentic Greek experience.

Summer 2013

  • 5 out of 5
This idyllic villa is set in a peaceful village with fantastic views. The villa is fantasticly equipped and spotlessly clean with everything you will need to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The owners ensure that all of your requirements are taken care of. The local tavern provides the ideal place for drinks or a meal. This was our second holiday at Villa Vounaki and we hope to return again.

Lyra Villas

  • 5 out of 5
From the very first click on the Lyra Villas Collection website I knew that I had found something extra special and I certainly wasn?t disappointed - my family and I experienced the best two weeks we have ever had!

Our villa ? ?Villa Vounaki? is situated in Makriotika within stunning panoramic views of the Ionian Sea and the surrounding mountains. It is tastefully furnished, well equipped and beautifully maintained and both the pool and villa were cleaned on a regular basis.

The owners Lida Kougianou and Peter Keil provided excellent service ? we arrived late evening and they had thoughtfully filled the fridge with enough items to enable us to produce an evening meal which was so very much appreciated after such a long journey ? we had driven to Kefalonia from the UK!

Only a short walk from the villa in the village of Makriotika is a good restaurant which is frequented by both tourists and locals alike and offers traditional Greek meals of exceptionally high quality and at very reasonable prices.

The beautiful harbour of Agia Efimia is only 4 kilometres away. Here you can find a number of restaurants overlooking the harbour which offer menus to suit every ones taste - but I would thoroughly recommend ?fior d?amore cafe? ? (it?s literally on the corner of the harbour and has a beautiful garden made up of dahlias and sunflowers). The service and welcome is exceptional and their evening cocktails are amazing! I would also recommend the Paradise Beach restaurant which sits on the cliff tops going towards Odyssey Hotel ? fantastic views across to Sami and Ithaka.

Agia Effimia has a good dive centre which my daughter frequented for most of the holiday. It also has a small beach, a number of supermarkets, a lovely bakery, exceptional meat market and a pharmacy ? everything you could possibly need in the most perfect setting.

There is so much to see and do in beautiful Kefalonia ? Myrtos beach, Assos and Fiskardo are all in close proximity and reflect the best Kefalonia has to offer, but even if it is pure rest and relaxation you are looking for then all you need to do is to spend two wonderful weeks at Villa Vounaki.

I wouldn?t hesitate to recommend Lyra Villas to my friends and family and I am looking forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Lovely villa

  • 5 out of 5
First impressions were not misleading. Everything was lovely from the minute we arrived. Completely spic and span, everything we needed for a really lovely break. The pool was great, and really clean, with unobtrusive cleaning every other day or so. Views not as good as the other villa on site, but very private nonetheless, and the covered seating area outside overlooking the pool was great in the evenings. Villa was cleaned and linen changed (including beach towels) twice a week. Great location - worth getting a rental car to have a bit of a tour and reach different beaches. Lida and Peter were extremely welcoming and really nice. Definitely a holiday to remember, and a villa to recommend.
