Luxurious property in charming and convenient location in relaxing Kefalonia
My parents, wife, brother, niece and I stayed in Iro's luxurious villa from July 18-25. Iro was an attentive host and gave us good advice on restaurants, beaches, necessities. Thank you Iro! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would revisit in a heartbeat.
The property location is peaceful with charming small villages and churches nearby. Lakithra is above sea level giving us unobstructed sea views from the large bedroom balconies and pool area. We heard churchbells and the faint crow of a rooster everyday! There were 2 restaurants, a bakery, and a neighborhood minimart within walking distance. Having a car is a necessity here. Argostoli and 3 supermarkets were a short drive away. Nearby Avithos beach is somewhat sandy, has great swimming, and is developed with umbrellas, sunbeds, beach bar, and 2 tavernas. FYI, the famous Myrtos beach no longer has ANY services, so bring everything you'll need.
Villa Ylenia was gorgeous and very comfortable with beautiful interior decoration. The website photos do not do this property justice. It was built in 2015 with obvious attention to every detail. There is lots of room to spread out and relax! The outdoor spaces and pool were also beautifully finished with high end lounge furniture. The pool is big, very clean and irresistible. I wish I had a pool like that at home! There are fruit trees too. Hanging out at the beautiful villa all day was an attractive daily option.
The kitchen is fully stocked with kitchen ware. We bought all our foodstuffs and bathroom amenities. We bought charcoal and grilled pork chops and shrimps with visiting friends one evening. Eleni, our cheerful housekeeper, came every other day.
We miss Kefalonia and Villa Ylenia already❤️
Thank you very much for your wonderful comments !!!
I am looking forward to welcome you and all the family again !!!
Excellent villa in a great location
Iro was most welcoming & responded very quickly to any questions we had from booking & through our stay. She was also extremely helpful on arrival & departure.
The villa & annex were excellent, & the pictures are a true reflection of reality. Safe behind an electronic gate, & angled so that it was totally private with superb views out to sea.
We were a party of 5: 2 adults, 2 parents & a 5 year old, & the property inside & out catered well for all our needs. With the pool, a bedroom, outside seating areas & the annex all on the same level, it was also easy for one of our party with reduced mobility to fully enjoy everything.
The pool & gardens were well maintained, & the inside of both properties were spotlessly clean with high quality fixtures, fittings & furniture. & with clean fresh fluffy towels always on hand, en-suite shower rooms & dressing rooms. More like a holiday home, than a commercial villa.
The location was also excellent. On the outskirts of the quiet Lakithra village, with a handy bakery, mini-market & a few restaurants, within easy driving distance of Argostoli, Lassi, local beaches & country tavernas, & a good base for driving days out.
We very much enjoyed our family holiday at the villa & would highly recommend it. Just a shame we had to leave to come home....
Thank you very much for your nice comments about our villa Ylenia !!!
We will always try to keep the high standards and services for our guests.
Hope to be able to welcome you again !!!
Fabulous villa, everything you could want.
This was our second stay at Ylenia, we found it by chance last year and couldn't wait to return this year.
The secluded, architecturally designed villa is set in extensive grounds behind a remote-controlled gated wall and has magnificent views down to the sea and across to Ithaki. The property was brand-new last year and we wondered if it would still be as lovely but it was, everything was still immaculate from soft fluffy white towels, pool towels and lovely bedlinen to the immaculate swimming pool and gardens and garden furniture. Cleaning services by Eleni three times a week and excellent management customer service combine to make it a worry free stay. Special requests e.g. baby facilities are quickly and willingly dealt with.
I have travelled all over the world both for business and pleasure staying in top quality accommodation and would not hesitate to give this my strongest recommendation to both friends and family. We went with family of all ages but it would also make a great venue for a group of friends.
A car is a must but the villa is very handily located from the local bakery over the road to supermarkets about 2/3 miles away and Argostoli (the main town) just another couple of miles down the same road. Beaches are relatively close by, we particularly enjoyed Avythos beach which also has two excellent fish restaurants.
The island also has an ancient and fascinating history for those who desire more than sun, sea and good food! There are also fitness machines and table tennis for the more energetic.
Go, you won't be sorry.
Thank you very much for your wonderful comments about our villa Ylenia. We so much looking forward to see you again!!!
This villa exceeded our expectations. It is immaculate. The villa is in a superb position with stunning views over the countryside and the sea. It has a grand entrance through electric gates and then down a long tree lined drive to the villa with plenty of parking space. The living room, dining room and kitchen are open plan and modern with everything you need and more, very luxury. All the rooms have large patio doors over looking the pool and the sea which open fully. The bedroom we stayed in on the first floor has a very large balcony with seating areas both sides and great views. The large pool was amazing with a Jacuzzi as part of it. There is a separate one bedroom villa next to the main villa which we didn't use as we travelled as a couple but we had a look at it and it was gorgeous. Iro was excellent, she was always at hand if we needed anything and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. This villa is just stunning and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting luxury. In fact we have already recommended it and sent the link to 2 of our friends who are looking at booking it. We really didn't want to go home!
Thank you very much for your wonderful comments !!!
We will always try to keep the high standards for the satisfaction of our guests.
Looking forward to have you again to our villa Ylenia for your next holidays !!!
A simply stunning taste of sheer luxury and beauty
When you book a holiday, you see the lovely pictures online and don't think for one minute that the reality could live up to it. But, from the minute we pulled up at the electric gates of Ylenia, we knew we were in for a real treat.
This is a villa that not only offers unrivalled views that sweep across the ocean to nearby Zakinthos, but the villa itself is a stunning luxury to behold.
I believe Ylenia was originally intended to be a smart family home and this is what makes it so very special. Every little touch has been carefully thought about from the tasteful and stunning design, to the spotlessly clean areas both inside and outside - not to mention the added facilities, which include state of the art appliances, a music system that can fill the whole villa with your favorite music and even your very own gym.
I truly felt like a celeb during my stay at Ylenia and felt very privileged to have stumbled across this jewel of Kefalonia.
When booking a holiday here, you actually get much more than the brochure lets on. The management team - from the lovely cleaning lady to the super friendly manager, Iro - could not be more helpful and the stay was a true pleasure from start to finish.
And if you ever feel like leaving the villa, there are some lovely restaurants and beaches a short drive away (not to mention the gorgeous bakery at the top of the road).
I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to any friends and family - in fact I already have. This is a true find if you're looking for a spot of luxury and relaxation. Just, if you do go, please take care of it, because I can't wait to return again!
Thank you very much for your wonderful comments !!!
We will always try to provide the best service and quality for our clients.
We look forward to welcome you again to our villa Ylenia !!!
Kefalonia is the biggest of the Ionian islands. Kefalonia island is a destination with masses to see and do. From Skala in the south to Fiskardo in the north, from the wonderful village of Assos to the famous beach of Myrtos, Kefalonia has a coastal vibe that is hard to beat. There's swimming,snorkelling,diving,yachting,beach bumming and cave exploring. Plus the food and local wine (Robola ) is excellent. Inland the countryside is covered in olive groves and vineyards, fields are dotted with sheep and goats and Mount Ainos rises above it all-take a walk to the summit for spectacular views of the entire island !!!
