About Caroline Kane

Having lived on the island of Spetses for 2 years in my twenties, I returned to Greece in 2012, fell hook, line and sinker for Kefalonia & decided to make the island a big part of my future and that of my family and friends by buying this beautiful villa.

Caroline Kane purchased this villa in 2012

Why Caroline Kane chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

Quite simply, the location & views are unbeatable, the villa spacious, modern and so well-appointed....... A true Infinity pool is the icing on the cake & I will never tire of the endless azure of the Ionian Sea!

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location! Peace, beauty and privacy without isolation. The villa lies within a traditional village, so when the summer visitors have all gone life continues as normal. For me, my family & groups of friends, the villa has it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Magical week that flew by far too fast! Villa was perfect and a view we spent many an hour gazing at. Will be back one day!

View is what this villa is all about

  • 4 of 5

We were greeted on arrival by Sam who was very pleasant and helpful and set the mood for the stay and had the apartment shining for our arrival. The Villa is all about the view and it is stunning to say the least. We have stayed in Vlachata before and been more central for the village restaurants and bars which this villa in all honestly needed one of us to drive as it was simply to steep for the ladies coming back on an evening. The villa is spacious and more than adequate for a large family/group. I would though suggest that if 8 guests arrived it would prove to be problematic for all to be seated at the same time. The villa advertises TV however their was none either satellite or internet based for our stay not that it bothered us at all as we were to busy taking in the views!!!. The internet speed itself is adequate for emails, social media etc.. I would consider returning again in the future with all the family.

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!!!


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 :(

a wonderfull stay at a lovely spot on Kefalonia!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull stay at the villa Ionion Pelagos!!!The villa is beautifull and comfortable for 8 people. Although we lived mainly outside in the shade of the pergola, the house is well equiped and clean and the villa-management visited the villa during our stay for fresh bedding etc. Super!! The view from the inifinity pool is splendid and we loved the swallows and bats who flew over the pool to drink.

You need a car on Kefalonia, but the owner gave us good advice about car-rental, all very easy and comfortable. The villa is close to to several beautiful beaches and small towns. I highly recommend this villa to anyone considering staying there, and Iwe certainly hope to come back in the future!!!

Ultimate in views

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week's holiday. We were very happy in the villa and I would say the view from the pool is about the best I've seen. We were obviously concerned about the current situation in Greece but can honestly say we saw no sign of it on the island when we were there. The only queues we saw were at a cashpoint in Argostoli - about 12 people each time, so this could just have been the norm. The supermarket shelves were full and restaurants normal during our visit. Our favourite restaurant was the Olive Lounge which served the most delicious food.

The villa owner was so helpful prior to and during our stay. The pool lights weren't working when we arrived - a small thing but one email to the owner and it was immediately sorted.

As I write this at home in England, with grey skies and rain outside, how I wish I was back in the villa!

Owner's Response: Thank you! It was such a pleasure getting to know you as we went along. I always keep in touch with guests, in addition to having a manager on hand in Kefalonia, so it is no trouble to deal with anything my guests may need help with. In this case a lightning strike had fused the pool lights so we were able to get them up & running again very quickly. It is also reassuring to know, for future guests, that the current difficulties in Greece are having no impact on tourists in Kefalonia!

The villa is stunning and I had such a fantastic stay there! The view from the inifinity pool was unbelievable and you receive sunshine all day long since it is south facing. The bedrooms and living area were perfect for us, stylishly decorated and well-maintained, clean and very comfortable. The villa is close to several restaurants too if you wish to eat out, and also within a short distance to several beautiful beaches and small towns. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone considering staying there, and I certainly hope to come back in the future!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you were delighted with the villa. Making sure that it is spotless and comfortable is a high priority for me, as is keeping the decor and furnishings up to date, as well as continuing to make the outdoor space even more beautiful and well-equipped.

Located in the traditional village of Vlahata, just above Lourdata, Villa Ionion Pelagos enjoys sublime, elevated views of the undulating coastlne of the Livathos region and across the aquamarine Ionion Sea towards Zakynthos. Behind the villa the slopes of Mount Ainos rise steeply to over 1500m; goat bells tinkle as the animals graze among olive groves and pine trees, including the unique, endemic Kefalonian Pine. Directly below Vlahata is the beautiful bay of Lourdas with over 3km of sand & fine shingle beach with full facilities. There are countless other beautiful, uncrowded beaches to enjoy in the vicinity; you could finish the day with a cocktail on Avithos beach & watch the stunning sunset! The villages of Vlahata & Lourdata have several excellent restaurants & bars as well as a bakery and several small supermarkets and only 10km away Argostoli, the capital, has markets, numerous bars, restaurants, shops & boutiques in addition to wider cultural amenities such as museums, theatre & excellent tennis facilities. In Argostoli you will find great fresh meat, fruit & veg, as well as freshly-landed fish to bring back to barbecue at the villa. In addition the resort of Skala with its endless sandy beach & upbeat, modern feel is only 20 minutes S-E of the villa. For lovers of stunning & unspoilt beauty the world-famous beach of Mirtos is a 40 minute drive to the North-west and the traditional but cosmopolitan & chic fishing village of Fiscardo a further 20 minutes along the coastal road. Closer to home, why not drive up the metalled road from Vlahata & follow its winding route up Mount Ainos throgh the olive groves for even better views or hike directly from the villa & enjoy the unique flora & fauna of Kefalonia close up....The villa offers a genuinely ideal location; offering a traditional & peaceful home from home whilst giving easy access to many of the best features of this intoxicatingly beautiful island.
