  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Villa Vinaria Litoa from 13/09/14 – 24/09/14 and cannot fault it in any way. It is everything we expected and more and would return now if we could. The Villa has been beautifully designed by Peter who lives next door, it has so many places to sit and enjoy the wonderful views across the sea and the gardens contain Olive trees and vines. Being so close to the Airport was an advantage not an issue, we really enjoyed watching the planes come and go. Ammes Beach is a 5 minute walk away and another 5 min will get you to some Tavernas. A car is essential to enjoy the beauty of Kefalonia. One evening during our stay Peter and Anastasia took us into the mountains to get a taste of a real Greek Taverna which was amazing. We also had Rory the Chef come in first with our arrival meal and then for an indian evening, an experience nobody should miss and we had the leftovers the next day.

If you need to relax and recharge then there is no better place to do it. I had a romantic vision in my head of a Greek Island and this holiday lived up to my dream.

There is so much to say about this gorgeous villa I don't know where to start! First point of call was Angela who has answered all my emails and queries swiftly and was a delight to deal with. No question was too much trouble. On arrival which is just 5 mins from the airport ( just beware that the directions do say after the last turn its 2 1/2 km along road when in fact it is only about 1/2 km so don't drive straight past it! ) On arrival we were blown away with what we discovered. So much space, so much attention to detail, and so well equipped. Inside the kitchen has everything you need and even a welcome pack of water, beer, bread, butter, orange juice etc a lovely touch. The whole villa was spotless. The bedrooms light and airy and the décor perfect. There is an lower level huge room with bbq, another kitchen, toilet and shower room and large fridge freezer all accessible from the pool area. Outside there is sooo much space, with deck chairs, sun loungers, dining tables and casual tables and chairs/seating. Plenty of shade whatever time of day. The pool was lovely although a bit cold at the time of year we were there. The owners we lovely and we met them a few times. Thank you so much for my birthday present I LOVE it! We had a meal cooked for us by Viva who was lovely and the meal was divine although she cooked enough for 8 and there was 4 of us! Kept us happy for a few days! I would not hesitate to recommend this delightful villa to anyone thinking of Kefalonia. The airport is no problem and the flights in and out just became a spectacle. Infact you could not hear them until they were about to land. The views are just stunning and the local beach and tavernas just a 15 mins stroll away. A 5 minute drive to Svoranata and more tavernas. Don't hesitate to book this villa you wont be disappointed!! Plan to be back very soon, thank you for a wonderful holiday on your wonderful island.

A Perfect Week

  • 4 out of 5
The 'Audrey Hepburn of villas' ... classy & sophisticated. Wish list would request a king size bed & window mosquito screens. More outside space than we knew what to do with & so many different seating areas. Close location of airport was never a problem. Couple of large parasols so you can sit by the pool when the sun is at its best would be a nice option. Car needed but equally the isolation of the villa is a bonus ... there were many moments when you could close your eyes & only hear the birds & the lapping of waves .... & smell the scent of jasmine - more jasmine please!

Nicholas Market is an easy 20 minute stroll away & has everything you need; their home grown lemons are divine ... slice up, add to a jug of water & chill in the fridge. Home made biscuits are fab too. Greekstones next door for car hire - very friendly & helpful staff.

Koytoupas Paradise restaurant nearby (easy 15 minutes stroll) serves all the usual options & is a good place to dine & watch the sunsets. Be sure to pack a small torch though, as if you walk back later in the evening there is no lighting.

Bon Viveur - the 'Rory factor' ... a delicious 3-course meal served on the terrace... highly recommended. Be sure to wear elasticated waistbands as there is plenty to enjoy!

Be sure to make the trip to Fiskardo ... stunning - our jewel of the island. The journey itself is quite something with breath taking scenery. Stop at Mirtos Beach en route - delightful restaurants at the head of the road leading down to the unspoilt beach. Try the homemade Kefalonian cake - totally delicious.

Sami via Kastros Castle is another recommended day trip. Little restaurant at the entrance to the Castle is charming - gave us home made coconut truffles to finish off (no charge) & they were scrumptious. The views from each side of the Castle ruins are totally different. From Sami pop round to Antisamos Beach of Captain Corelli fame ... stunning cove but rather spoiled by two modern beach tavernas churning out music & far too many tacky parasols & sunbeds which somewhat demeans the cove. What a shame.

Gentilini Winery, en route to Lassi (about 10 minutes from the villa), is also recommended. Free sampling of three wines with nibbles or for 3 euros you can sample all six wines with nibbles. Nora was delightful & informative & all the wines are extremely good. Take a bottle or two back to the villa. Dolly & Corelli are the meet & greeters (dogs) & are quite charming.

A perfect week.

Speechless!

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is a short drive away from the airport and like the other reviews have mentioned already, although the planes can be heard they cause no inconvenience at all. With the airport being nearby it is a blessing in disguise when getting used to driving on the other side of the car / road.

The reviews below describe the layout and the pictures speak for themselves so I won’t repeat what has already been said - apart from it being superb!

When we were looking into where to stay we wanted a traditional Greek villa away from the tourist traps and this dwelling ticked all the boxes and then some.

When we arrived at the villa we were met by the lovely owners, Panagis and Tassia, who were more than hospitable. They stay at their own villa next door (30 yards away) at the weekends so it was handy to fly in on the Sunday as we managed to ask them where to eat / drink without the area being too ‘touristy’.

Prior to leaving the UK, through Angela we hired our very own chef (Viva) who prepared an outstanding 3 course meal for us, along with her signature dish, on the Monday night as it was our wedding anniversary. It cost £30pp for the three traditional home cooked courses which was a bargain as we ate the leftovers the following evening!! Highly recommend Viva should you wish to dine in and have dinner on the balcony while the sun sets. She also does all the dishes / tidying up so there’s nothing for you to do.

There’s so much to say about the island but in summary; hire a car and get out and about as there is so much stunning scenery to take in, visit the fantastic nearby Gentilini vineyard and buy a bottle (or two), Lassi / Sami very tourist orientated but good for souvenirs, and book Viva to cook for you!!

We visited late September for a week (wished we stayed for longer) and there were clear skies, mid to high 20’s, their autumn apparently!

The villa is amazing, I assure you you won’t be disappointed if you book here. We will definitely be visiting the villa again, hopefully next year.

Thanks again to Panagis and Tassia who truly made our holiday one to remember. We'll see you in Edinburgh!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review and we are so pleased that you had a great time not only at the villa but on our beautiful island of Kefalonia. Panagis and Tassia are so proud of their villa, and with good reason to be. They have put a lot of thought and effort into both the interior and exterior and this is obvious as you take in your surroundings. We wish you both a happy winter and we really hope to see you again next year.

Exceptional accomodation

  • 5 out of 5
Utterly amazing villa. Designed and built by an architect for his own family, it fantastically furnished and supremely comfortable.

The outdoor pool area is amazing. the underground taverna stunning. The owner popped by to welcome us and encouraged us to help ourselves to his wine Cellar. Pity non of us are drinkers.

At the end of the garden is a rocky shoreline ... Great if you are strong swimmer and beach-combing, but not suitable for children .... But then they will be just totally enamoured by the swimming pool area.

Very close to the Airport, there is no denying ... But flights were very infrequent even in late July ... And are actually interesting to watch !!

You will need a car as the villa is isolated. Small local market walkable, but pricey. Big supermarkets for big weekly shops are about 20 minutes away.

Amazing sea views and of the sunsets.

Would love to visit this villa again.

Unbelievably beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
Vinaria Litoa is a stunning accommodation. My wife and I have just returned from a weeks stay during which we were privileged enough to be allowed to hold our wedding reception within the grounds of the villa. The photographs on the site genuinely do not do the accommodation justice. The views from the villa are incredible and as the location is away from any notable sources of light, the night sky reveals not only an infinite number of stars but also a clear view of the milky-way as you look out over the ocean! We cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Vinaria Litoa, nor could we recommend it more. The villa is homely, yet extravagant, without being pretentious. The owners of the villa, who reside next door, could not have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful. Ange who manages the villa and who is your main contact during your stay is lovely and on hand to assist with any queries or issues you might have (of which we had none). Although the villa is close to the airport (very close) we can assure you that noise is not an issue. There are no night flights in Kefalonia and so there is no disturbance of sleep; the aeroplanes actually make for interesting entertainment on the odd occasion you are aware of them landing. The villa boasts a beautiful swimming pool as well as quaint vineyards. The lower floor cellar/kitchen is a lovely addition to the villa that means you can pop inside easily from the pool to fill up your glass and the room itself is filled with beautiful, little ornamental treasures which further add to the luxurious feel of your home-from-home. Our wedding guests were all in awe of the location of our reception and a number have expressed interest in booking the villa themselves next time they travel to Kefalonia. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and villa Vinaria Litoa was a big part of making that day so special. Book your holiday here and we guarantee that you won't be disappointed! - Alex and Rosanna xx

Villa Vinaria Litoa is set in a stunning location 5 minutes walk from the beautiful cool clear waters and golden sands of Minies and Ammes beach. The first level garden leads down to the lower level vineyard which has a gated entrance to the rocky coast of Ammes, you can relax in a secluded part of the coast or jump or dive from the rocks into the azure blue Ionian Sea. The villa is 5 minutes walk from amenities such as local tavernas serving local wine and sumptious local dishes, mini markets to keep you stocked with the essentials. To the left of the villa is the stunning beach of Ammes, whilst to the right is the golden sandy beach of Minies, both beaches are quiet and preferred by locals. If you prefer a livelier beach with water sports, a 10 minute drive away will bring you to the hip and trendy beaches of Makris and Platis Gialos. The capitol of the island is Argostoli and is a 10 minute drive from the villa, recommended to visit for a taste of the excellent and exquisite cake and coffee shops (you'll need to leave your diet plans at home!!). Also a must is to stroll along the harbour front at Argostoli and watch the fishermen coming in with their catch of the day, they are very happy to clean and prepare the fish for you and are very reasonably priced, ideal for bbqs. There are lots of places within easy access from the villa, visit Mount Ainos for wonderful flora and fauna, the quaint and unforgettable fishing village of Assos. The far north of the island you will find the village of Fiskardo, wonderful tavernas selling local dishes with plenty of fresh fish, enjoy your lunch on the harbour front while watching the fish jumping out of the water for bread, or even do a bit of starwatching, stars like Oprah Winfrey, Michael Douglas have been spotted, or simply look longingly at the impressive and luxurious yachts moored in the harbour. There is so much to see and do for all tastes here on the wonderful island of Kefalonia, Villa Vinaria Litoa is a beautfiul villa where you will relax in the luxurious surroundings the mintue you enter the house, it is ideally located, away from the hustle and bustle but within easy distance to all local amenities and is central for access to the whole island.
