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 Vlachata

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!

The villas view is what this property is all about it is breath taking

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay in this villa was everything we wanted it is very private, the views are outstanding. It was very clean and well equipped with everything you would need. Caroline the owner is very helpful and responsive to any questions you may have and Sam who looks after the villa is very polite. I would recommend car hire to visit the island it is very hilly again Caroline helped us with this. Overall it is a beautiful villa and island.

Perfect villa with a pool view we will remember forever

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa. Fabulous pool & views. Everything we needed for a truly wonderful holiday.

We arranged hire cars to explore the island, so the hilly location of the villa wasn't a problem. The hill wasn't a surprise to us because we knew the villa had a good view - no hill no view. It was a great central location for driving to the East & West coasts as well as being a very short drive to the South coast.

The interior of the villa was just what we wanted; clean, tastefully decorated & well equipped without being cluttered. The photos on this website don't do the villa justice. The outside furniture was ample & good quality, not a white plastic chair in sight! Showers were really good. Infinity pool was well built, well maintained and recovered quickly after the children had finished splashing about. This pool would not be a relaxing choice if you have defiant young children because of the infinity edge having a steep drop. This was fine for our 4 children, youngest being 9yrs, they all complied with our 'no sitting on the edge' rule. Wifi was perfect but we only used it for radio & Google maps. I had 4G/Google maps on my iPhone across the whole of the island, from Sami to Skala to Argostoli.

Air-con units worked well, although we only used them in the bedrooms while sleeping.

The location is 'quiet residential', so we did have to keep noise to a minimum after 11pm, and be generally considerate to others, which we hope we achieved. Not suitable for party animals.

Thank you very much to Caroline. And a big thumbs up to Keith the pool guy for not only doing a great job of the pool, but for his top tips on where to go after we vacate the villa and are waiting for return flight. Thanks Keith - you made our last day a lot less painful x

This is a fantastic villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Lourdas area before and stayed in a villa with sea views at St Thomas's beach but the views from Villa Pelagos were mich better and absolutely amazing. Views from the 2 upstairs bedrooms equally as fantastic and I would definitely stay in this villa again. It is up on the hill so a car is necessary but what ever villa you stay in this area you really do need a car so why not drive an extra 5 minutes and get a view like this one ! You can walk down a steep hill to a small taverna, mini market and superb bakers but be warned it is a steep 10 minute walk back. We had some great BBQ's and cooked once a day and cooking equipment is adequate for holiday cooking. We arrived around 10pm and were greeted with a lovely welcome back so we could all have a cheese sarni and mum and dad had a cold beer. Caroline answered all our queries and all in all we were very happy with our stay and service.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely and very relaxing holiday in Kefalonia. Villa Ionian Pelagos is beautiful, very spacious, clean and equipped with everything you could need and the view is simply breathtaking. The pool is great with plenty shade should you need it. Even though the villa is in a quiet secluded area the beach, shops and restaurants are only a short walk away and we would definitely recommend 'Cafe Platanos', which is an absolute gem. The capital, Argostoli is a short drive away and my daughters loved seeing the turtles, and I would recommend a visit to Fiskardo too.

Exceptional villa with truly amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My initial query to Caroline was answered the same day and the level of detail provided made it a simple choice to holiday at this villa. Our ideal holiday (as a family of 4 with 2 early teen children) was one where we can all simply turn off the phones, read books, sunbathe and spend quality time together, and this villa exceeded all our expectations. The views from the villa and surrounding area are simply amazing but combine these with a relatively small, but very good selection of great restaurants & bars, and you have a holiday to remember. Caroline responded to all of our questions straight away and provided great advice as to what to do on the island. All in all it was the perfect holiday and I have no hesitation rating this 5 stars.

Owner's Response: A delightful family and for me the ultimate reward is that you had a dream holiday to remember! I'm now enjoying my annual month-long retreat to the villa for September and have just this evening made another wonderful discovery of a perfect fish taverna in a hidden-away spot by the sea which I will be recommending to my guests! Doesn't hurt that it's 26 degrees at 9.30 pm either! I look forward to welcoming you back.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 weeks here and loved it! It is a lovely villa with a magnificent pool and view. Caroline was a very responsive and helpful owner and recommended car hire and restaurants for us. Our favorite restaurant was La Mer where we ate 3 times after cocktails at Astra. We went for coffee every morning at "Seven" at the beach where they give you free chocolate cake!

We did drive to most places as the roads are steep and meant we could benefit from the air on.

Would fully recommend this villa.

Car: recommended

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.
