The colour accents in the home provide a spacious, peaceful and stylish feel.

The outside stone sitting area, just two meters from the beach, with the fireplace in the middle will make you enjoy the place with all your senses.

Every consideration has been made to ensure a comfortable and relaxing holiday.

Although villa is near the airport, noise is so little that in no way will disturb the peace and joy of your holidays. There are not night flights and not many flights every day. If you decide to spend your holidays at villa Alegria the sound of the waves is the only noise that you have to get used to...

Property Features:

-High standard throughout

-Traditional Mediterranean design

-Direct access to the beach (from the garden you can step straight to the sand)

-Swimming pool

-Outside sitting area with fireplace in the center

-Amazing views of the Ionian sea

About Thalia Drakatou

I was borned in the beautiful Island o Kefalonia, married and had 2 wonderful young boys. My family lives in the capital of the island, Argostoli.

What makes this villa unique

It is rare to find a villa like this in Kefalonia. There is nothing between you and the sea except the sand and the small rocks...

Beautiful house and a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Allegria. It is a beautiful house and the outside space was fantastic. We have 2 young boys (2 and 5) and they happily spent every day in the pool, running round the garden or at the beach just a couple of minutes drive away (we did also use the beach at the end of the garden but for the children the one round the corner provided easier access to the sea).

Thalia was a great host and was always on hand if needed. She met us at the airport and showed us to the house which made it very stress free. The only issue we had was with the wifi but it was sorted out the same day. 6 months on both our boys still ask if we can go back to 'thalia's house' again next year.

We spent our evenings sat on the terrace with the view of the pool, garden and the sea, it is a very peaceful place to be. When we return to Kefalonia we would definitely stay here again.

We rate this destination with five stars. If there were six available, we wouldn't have hesitated...

The house keeps its promises. It is clean, spacious and very well equipped. The pool perfectly well maintained as well as the lawn. The cleaning staff is very helpful, efficient and quick. Access to the sea is easy and the visitor has its private beach available. The startling view and the whole atmosphere lets you feel relaxed the moment you enter the house.

The airport close by doesn't disturb at all. You don't hear the planes taking off. Furthermore, Kefalonia’s airport is not busy at all. The place is quiet and calm, you can spend your days in the house and do nothing except swimming, sun bathing, and wait for the evening to come in order to prepare your own barbecue on the grill. We recommend hiring a car, which can easily be provided by Thalia, who is very helpful, always at your disposal and ready to give a hand whenever need be. She not only tries but fulfills all whishes you might have.

In sum, we will not hesitate to choose this place again; it’s a piece of paradise on one of the most beautiful islands in Greece.


Thalia is extremely helpful,

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review! Villa Alegria is situated in a quite area (not densely populated). Is only 12 min drive away from Lassi, a holiday spot, with many restaurants, bars, super markets and the two of the most beautiful beaches of the island. Near the villa (not more than 3-5min drive) there are 3 organized beaches with sunbeds and beach bars (Spasmata, Long beach and Ammes) very popular to locals and tourists and also Eglina beach that is 5min walk from the villa. Hope that these informations will be helpful to a future visit at our Villa!

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5


We would like to thank you for a great time at your beautiful home. Your place was fully equipment with everything we needed, and the beautiful views of mountains and the ocean were amazing. Your staff that cleaned and provided us with fresh towels and bedding were also amazing.

Thanks again for picking us up from the airport. We hope to see you soon

This is our second time to Kefallonia and second time in a villa. My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. We were initially concerned that the villa was too close to the airport and that we wouldn't feel like we were 'away' or secluded. As promised by Thalia, you cannot see or hear the airport at all while you are there. You do have to drive around it to get to the main highway, but we were truly in our own secluded paradise. The villa is beautiful. Very spacious. Very nice decor. We loved the candles everywhere! The kitchen had everything we needed. The outside was out of this world. We enjoyed breakfast everyday overlooking the water and dinners with a view of the sunset under the pergola. The BBQ and outdoor fridge were perfect for making dinner and hosting friends. The pool was clean and refreshing with the added bonus of having Jacuzzi jets and a bench along one side as well. And we loved the extra games and water toys provided! The location of the villa is amazing as well. It's a close enough drive to everywhere you want to go. We drove along the coast to Myrtos (amazing!) went out in Agrostoli, were a short drive from beautiful Avithos beach and hired a boat from Lourdas beach. The grocery stores were close as well. Even though we were already in Europe for a wedding....we came all the way from Canada to enjoy the beauty that is Kefallonia and if we had the pleasure of returning again, we would definitely stay at Villa Alegria. Thalia was also a great host. She was very helpful getting us settled in, helped us organise activities that we wanted to do (such as in house massages!) and was very warm and welcoming. You cannot go wrong with booking through her. Thanks for an amazing trip and maybe see you again soon! Beata and Mark, Kef 2014 :)
