Guestbook comments from the owner
We have visited Kefalonia several times before, but accomodation-wise Villa Yasmina was the best. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need; little things taken into consideration such as plastic glasses for round the pool. We appreciated the store cupboard items and the well stocked welcome pack. The location is great, fabulous sunsets and very quiet and peaceful. We shopped at the meat market and fruit and vegetable one, on the sea front at Argostoli and so ate in as much as we went to tavernas. We had very yummy barbeques,excellent meat and fish. We discovered a very good pastry and cake shop along the main road, turning right off the villa road. The pool was maintained very regularly by a chatty Keith and the garden was lovely. We would have liked to have had a change of towels mid week rather than just after one week, but other than that we highly recommend.

JUST PERFECT.

  • 5 out of 5
The Villa Yasmina is not just a villa, it is a home. Everything you need and more is provided, from plug adapters to fully stocked cupboards, lilos to beach towels, all the little details that make a difference.
The location is beautiful and it’s lovely being in a village rather than a resort, it really makes you feel like you can live there rather than just be on holiday.
There are a couple of places within walking distance to eat and drink but a car is really essential. We found beautiful tavernas in nearby villages such as Spartia, Avithos, Lakithra etc and none are far to drive. You can also drive to Argostoli and Lassi for a more “lively” feel although Kefalonia is never too lively thank goodness. Please stay that way Kef!
The villa doesn’t have WIFI but who needs it with stunning views and peace and quiet! A really good selection of books are provided along with an IPOD docking station, CD player and a DVD player (with DVD’s) so if you fancy a night in or the weather is a bit temperamental then no WIFI is not the end of the world!
We used the fantastic BBQ one night, bought the meat from the “meat market” just down the road. They do speak English but I managed to order everything in Greek which worked well! There’s also a bakery and a mini market within walking distance or a few minute’s drive. The mini market doesn’t look much but they actually stock everything and English is spoken too, if you can manage a few words of Greek it does really go down well though!
The private pool and gardens are just lovely, views to the castle or to Mount Ainos add to the beauty, sitting at the table with a glass of Robola watching the sun go down, listening to the birds and insects, perfect.
Just one thing would have made the stay better, it would have been nice to have a bathroom clean and bed sheet change once in the week but this was not really a big deal, we tried to keep everything clean as we went along, as you would do in your own home anyway. Just something to bear in mind. I believe if you stay for 2 weeks, there is a cleaning service once in the middle but if you’re there for a week then there is nothing provided.
After 23 years of visiting the island, I will struggle to stay in a hotel again! We’ve always stayed in small B&B’s but now we’ve found the Villa Yasmina, will it ever be the same again?!
Although we visit other countries further afield, no year will be complete without a visit home to Kefalonia!

Thank you for your 5* review. We accept your comments concerning the midweek linen changes and have already implemented your suggestions, commencing with the next guests who arrive at the villa on 6 July 2014.

We are very pleased that you had a lovely holiday in Villa Yasmina, and it is very comforting to hear from guests returning each year to Kefalonia that you share our tastes and love our home as much as we do. Your review has confirmed to us that our efforts have not been in vain!

Please keep in touch...you are most welcome at Villa Yasmina anytime.

PERATATA KEFALONIA

  • 4 out of 5
Compact and well designed villa. One of three side by side, each with individual pool. Pool excellently maintained. Outside space very well equipped with great inland mountain views and lots of seating. Kitchen very well equipped with copious sealable storage boxes keeping ants and other pests to an absolute minimum. Car essential -walk to village not attractive in heat- uneven surfaces and slightly too far. Great that oil, salt, pepper etc left for renters use- we always leave lots of kitchen essentials behind at end of any rental but rarely find them on arrival- nice that they were available here- didn't use dishwasher but even tablets for that provided. Brilliant insect screens on all doors/windows keeping all mosquitoes and wasps out, fewest ever bites at end of holiday!!
Hair straighteners and hairdryers x2 provided- perfect for teenage girls!!
Beware no wi fi and no TV channels (teenage essentials!) but several DVDs supplied, some books and CDs. Unfortunate that owners have had to put up information notices in living area relating to overuse of a/c and "breakages" warnings presumably following abuse by previous renters-reminiscent of student house share days!. Shame only one clean and linen change in two weeks but overall great comfortable base.

A LOVELY VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
A truly lovely villa with everything you need for a thoroughly relaxing holiday. The outlook from the poolside is spectacular and the villa is ideal in its rural setting while being close to local amenities and only a ten minute drive into Argostoli, the island capital. There are great restaurants nearby, notably Kastro and Elaionas, and the coast is only minutes away. The villa was particularly clean and well-maintained and the local managers were extremely helpful. We were also impressed by the excellent information provided by the owners before our visit.
The villa is very well equipped and finished to a very high specification. This was our first to Kefalonia and we could not have picked a better villa.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA WITH MANY EXTRAS

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in this beautiful villa during the first week of August. It has the most amazing views from its generous patio and pool area - you won't want to go inside! When you do, the villa is very well equipped and has many little extras to make your stay more comfortable: beach towels, cupboards stocked beyond the welcome pack and even hair straighteners! Booking was easy and the owners provided plenty of information both before and during our stay. The villa managers were very helpful and available 24/7 if needed. A car is a must, the walk to the village is possible in 10 - 15 minutes, but is a challenge on the partly unsurfaced road in the heat of day. That said, the position of the villa off the beaten track is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. This region of the island has it all: lovely beaches, plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and yet still retains its charm. Argostoli is a short 10-15 minute drive and all other areas of the island are easily reached from this location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend both the villa and Kefalonia to anyone.

A MOST RELAXING STAY.

  • 4 out of 5
We were the first guests to stay at this brand new modern villa in July and we had a most relaxing and wonderful holiday there. Both the owners and the couple that manage the property could not have been more helpful and the villa is extreamly well equiped. The views from the pool terrace are to die for as are most of the vistas on the beautiful island of Kephalonia and we would throughly recommend a holiday here.

Villa Yasmina is set in a stunning location just below the famous Castle of St.George, in the valley of Agios St Andreas.

The St Andreas Valley is situated on the edge of the village of Peratata, in the Livathos area of the Island. Livathos is considered to be the most exclusive region on the Island, due both to its relatively close proximity to Argostoli, and to its central position, allowing accessibility to all areas of Kefalonia within a 1hr drive. The whole valley is dominated by the highest mountain range in the Ionian, Mt Ainos, and this spectacular scenery makes this the perfect location for a luxury holiday retreat.

The village of Peratata, just a 5 minute walk away, boasts a large variety of facilities, including a mini-market, bakeries, and an array of traditional Kefalonian tavernas. Some of the tavernas have access to wifi at no extra cost.

Other Activities: Fishing,
