Luxury Villa Just Minutes from the Award Winning 'Turtle Beach'

Bedrooms 4
Space 120 m²
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Sleeps 8, 4 bedroom villa in Ratzakli

Our villa is designed to give you the comforts of home, so you will have a TV and Wi-Fi, a dining table for 6 indoors and a patio table for an additional 6 outside by the pool. A fully equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and washing machine so you don’t need to cram the suitcase with clothes for every single day.

We have 6 sun loungers around the pool so everyone can soak up the beautiful Kefalonia sunshine. We also have two large 3 seater settees which mean you can relax indoors too and the air conditioning will keep everyone cool

Fancy a barbeque, no problem. With lots of small supermarkets in Katelios or Skala or the larger supermarkets near Argostoli fresh food for that BBQ is easily available.

Sleep in comfort; the master bedroom has a double bed, en-suite bath/shower and toilet facilities. Sit on the large balcony and enjoy a morning coffee while you watch the sun rise from behind the nearby hills or watch it set over the sea and the nearby island of Zante.

The second double bedroom is downstairs and has direct access to the pool area, so any keen swimmers can use this without disturbing the sleepy heads of the family. It also has easier access for the less mobile.

Upstairs we also have a further two bedrooms each with two single beds. A cot is available on request. Finally to avoid the wash room arguments there are two walk in shower rooms and toilets one upstairs and one downstairs in addition to the en-suite .

Outside the property has its own private gardens, a traditional style BBQ and secure parking as well as the pool and large pool terrace.

We would highly recommend the use of a car both for ease of access to the villa and to make the most of your stay on the island. The Villa has ample parking for two cars.

About Tony Joannou

Just an ordinary guy who loves Greece

Tony Joannou purchased this villa in 2012

Why Tony Joannou chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

I chose this spot because of the location next to the most wonderful beach where I have been privileged to watch my children have fun each year as we visited the island.

Being lucky enough to now own a property nearby, I'm happy to open up my home to those wanting to discover the same experiences.

What makes this villa unique

I have tried to make this a home away from home. So whether you just fancy a day lazing round the pool, iced cold drinks are available from the American style fridge/freezer or are more adventurous and want to tour, the villa caters for all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for the 'loan' of your lovely villa. Had a great time, quiet area, close to the beautiful Turtle beach. Lovely sea views from the villa. A great welcome pack of food items on arrival and the mid week clean and bed linen change was greatly appreciated. The villa had everything (and more) that we needed. Great restaurant on turtle beach for lunch and/or dinner. Good choice for us vegetarians in all restaurants. As only 10 minutes drive from Skala and Katelios can soon be in local towns. Bonus for family was a great local dog 'Bes' who was a regular amusing visitor.

Absolutely Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you for the loan of your home on Kefalonia, you were right, the island is very special and the people are very warm and welcoming.

We could not have chosen a better spot, the nearby beach is probably the best we have ever been to, shallow, sandy and wonderfully warm. It was safe for the kids to play and unlike most beaches, really quiet, very exclusive.

We found Skala a great place to head to most nights as it had plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Katelios is very Bohemian, a great place for sea food.

The villa was just in the right place to get the best of all the nearby features.Car hire is essential though as the local village only has the one restaurant although it does serve fantastic food.

Everything in the villa was as described, it all seems very new and was a great place to stay; love the electric shutters and gates, felt like we were 5 star guests.

Would definitely stay again and would like to thank Tony for giving our family a very special holiday that all of us enjoyed and will live in our memories for a long time.
