                                    One of the best views on the island is from the edge of your own private infinity pool!!! What more do you need!!! Had a truly amazing experience on this holiday, from the very start of my enquiry the owner, Caroline, responded to me lightning quick and was always so helpful and passionate about her villa and Kefalonia. We arrived on a early flight and luckily Sam that looks after the villa was still there just finishing the cleaning so we were able to go straight in. She even stopped for 40 minutes to tell us all her favourite places and things to do on the island, then showed us round the local area and let us follow her to the supermarket so we could see the way. (Its very easy to find but what sensational service so lucky we got there before she left) We arrived to a welcome pack with all the essentials, most importantly some cold beers in the fridge which was a lovely touch. The villa was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable, I am not a man that copes well on little sleep so my travelling companions were relieved that I always slept soundly. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay and was always crystal clear, it was very difficult to drag ourselves away. We did however enjoy a day on a local beach (well my travelling companions enjoyed, as I have an aversion to sand it was a day from hell for me but that's just me) We also did a day touring the island from top to bottom including the underground lakes near Sami and a lunch and hiring our own speedboat for the afternoon in Fiskado. To finish we made it just in time for the most perfect sunset of my life at Myrtos beach. Its a day I will never forget. We had lots of barbeques by the pool as we did not want to leave, but still found time for a few dinners out. Our favourite was the Olive Lounge, where the owner made us feel like royalty, we bookended the evening with cocktails and had a fabulous dinner in between. Sam cleaned the villa midweek providing fresh towels and sheets she even dropped off some sweet peppers from her garden at home which we stuffed with feta and chilli and barbequed . A truly stress free experience, I cannot recommend it more!!! Warning- Be prepared for some serious holiday blues once its all over!!! Do yourself a favour if you cannot decide between a week or two weeks let me tell you make it two!! The week we spent just flew by and we were all trying to call home to work to see if we could get some extra leave and stay!!! THEY SAID NO :(

                                    Wonderful week in a wonderful villa

                                    5 of 5
                                    This is a beautiful villa in a stunning location and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay here. The villa was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need - a true home from home. The staff were wonderful and chef Yolanda prepared some of the best Greek food we have ever tasted. Her puddings and fresh Lobster especially were delicious. The location is ideal for accessing the lovely, unspoilt Trapezaki beach which is particularly good for young children. And the views from the villa and the sunsets were amazing. Would definitely recommend highly to anyone looking to visit the island.

                                    Blissful week at the Odysseus

                                    5 of 5
                                    This was quite simply one of the best holidays that myself and the D have ever taken. Greeted at the airport by our wonderful host Paraskevas, the moment we set eyes on the villa we knew we'd made the right choice! A fridge filled with local delights only helped confirm it! The villa's infinity pool was a highlight, early morning swims with views of the ocean in front of us and the mountains behind us. The shaded patio was perfect for me (I enjoy the sun from the shade) and the evening sunsets were take-your-breath-away beautiful. Paraskevas was the perfect host, a winning combination of available and discreet. Located in Platies, you're only a short drive away from the beach at Lourdas to the west and the slightly busier Katelios to the east. Even Argostoli is only half an hour or so away (if you're missing the bustle!). If we could have stayed for a second week, we would have! But we shall be going back, for sure.
