Perfect Kefalonia Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this property. 5 stars are not enough!

From initial consultation, through the holiday and even after we left the customer service and communication from the owner has been the best we have ever experienced. Damianos genuinely cared about whether we were having the best possible holiday experience. He provided tips on where to visit from best restaurants and beaches and was always on hand if any further help were needed, checking in by email from time to time just to make sure we were enjoying the stay.

Agia Efimia itself is the best location if you want to explore the whole of Kefalonia or just visit the best of the island. The town itself is big enough to have a section of supermarkets, butchers and bakers where you can get all you might need. It also has a number of excellent restaurants. The town is small enough to have its own harbour side charm and seemed to be popular but not overcrowded even at the height of the season.

Must see attractions such as Myrtos Beach, Antisamos Beach, Melissani Cave etc are only minutes away from the villa. Having explored almost the whole island there is nowhere that you cannot reach within an hour's drive even allowing for slow driving on mountainous roads with stops for taking in the spectacular views that come around almost every corner.

We were a little concerned before our stay about being outside of the town but we needn't have worried. You can reach Agia Efimia harbour front in a 30 minute walk along a quiet road or taxis are nearly always available in the town that will come and pick you up or take you back again for only 5 euros each way.

The villa itself was only reconstructed in 2014 as part of a pair. The family have maintained many of the original traditional features but the décor is also very tasteful and very modern. Every room has quite efficient air-conditioning (I usually can't sleep with air-con on as the noise keeps me awake but this was almost silent). The furnishing is comfortable and stylish. Both the en-suite and the main bathroom have superb walk in showers and the kitchen is well equipped.

During our stay the cleaners came in every 4 days or so to clean up and provide fresh bedding and towels.

Outside the villa the views across the valley and the almost total silence except for the sounds of cicadas or from the bells on the local goats added to a totally

relaxing stay.

Scuba diving at Agia Efimia village, a really nice experience.

Lake Melisani , a famous- must see kefalonia's tourist attraction is close by.Famous Drogarati Cave its 7 minutes by car.Breathtaking Antisamos beach is 15km away(14 minutes by car). Myrtos beach, one of the world's top rated beaches is only 6km away. Drakopoulata village where the luxury villa is located is a remarkable place to be,as you can see kefalonian architectural tradition and live into the nature while being far from noise and close to our most famous sites.
