About Gerasimos Rosolimos

Jerry and Nicole and their lovely family will be your on site hosts and have been welcoming visitors for many years to Kefalonia. Vyzantio was a dream of Jerry's and he planned and built the complex. Nicole is a wonderful cook and there will always be a dish of the day so you can enjoy Greek homemade cooking.Breakfast is also available overlooking the beautiful Ionian sea. Air conditioning is included in the room rate.

Gerasimos Rosolimos purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Gerasimos Rosolimos chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

The outstanding views from every part of Vyzantio's grounds will delight you. If total privacy and serenity are what you desire look no further. However, life is not dull. the bar is always open and there will be opportunities to meet and mingle if you wish! Lovely beaches and restaurants are nearby and the main town of Argostoli. A car is recommended.

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful Greek hospitality, home cooked fare,

Lovely place for a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The apartments are located in a beautiful environment, remote from the more tourist parts of the island. The sea is not far away (<1k), and you can make several very nice walks in the immediate vicinity of the complex, to the beach (<2k) or more inland. The hospitality of the family that runs the complex is simply heartwarming! There is a nice little swimming pool where the kids kids can play and swim. The houses are clean. The accommodation is sober but tastefully decorated even though the kitchen in our house was a little Spartan: no coffee machine, no (electronic) kettle, no microwave, no stove. On the other hand, the meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) provided in the restaurant of the complex were very tasteful – with a lot of homemade stuff (best pistachio ice-cream we ever had) – and very reasonably priced, so you might not need the kitchen that much ;)

In short: highly recommended, with or without kids.

We never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to leave as before we arrived in Kefalonia for our two week stay we (stupidly) decided to spend our second week in another hotel Across the island. We wish we had booked the whole stay at Vyzantio.

The staff (Jerry, Nicole and daughters) were extremely professional and extremely welcoming. The atmosphere was brilliant and we loved it because it was very family friendly (kids playing in the pool and lots of place and things to do) as well as being extremely relaxing and feeling very remote despite its wonderfully short distance to the airport and the main city! There are lots of local BEAUTIFUL beachs a short 15 minute walk away and there is a great mini market 10 min walk away.

The rooms were apartments were great! Had everything in them you could want including life saving air con. There were four of us staying, my girlfriend her mother, her younger brother and myself. We paid for two apartments but we could have all easily stayed in one.

The food at the hotel is simply brilliant and is exactly what you get all over the island in traditional kefalonian reastaurants. We were made to feel very welcome and after a week where quite upset to be leaving (my girlfriend actually cried). We really enjoyed our stay at Vyzantio and even now while we are across the island in a very nice hotel, we are planning our trip down there to enjoy dinner and drinks by the pool, because that place is a little more special and is located in such a perfect spot.

If you're staying in Kefalonia you must stay here. You won't worry about the thing with these guys helping you with everything from lifts from the airport to car hire to just generally being lovely and giving.

Lovely relaxing place - super helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a spacious and relaxing environment for me and my autistic brother who doesn't do stress or crowds and Vyzantio fit the bill absolutely perfectly - Spacious grounds, great big pool, good food and unbelievably helpful hosts.

We missed our scheduled flight and arrived a day late, which was no problem with Jerry & Nicole, our hosts, but our rental car booked through "RentalCars dot com" was now no longer available, even though fully prepaid. (As an aside - Don't ever use that company - complete rip-off - as we had to pay a 3 day rental penalty to get a refund). Anyway, Jerry could not have been more helpful - he picked us up at the airport and then miraculously, as it was the height of the season, went overboard and managed to find a rental car for us which was just perfect.

For the first couple of days, we stayed all day at Vyzantio and enjoyed the really chilled atmosphere, huge pool and good food. But we also wanted to explore all over Kefalonia so, after a tasty / hearty breakfast, we were out most of the day for rest of the time. Either way, Vyzantio worked very well for us. We originally booked for 10 days, but liked it so much we extended our holiday to over 2 weeks. As it was the height of the season, this involved a bit of room juggling at the end of the stay, but this proved no problem for our hosts or ourselves.

Would we recommend it - you bet!

If you're looking for a low key, relaxed, non-touristy, small scale but spacious, authentically Greek family run apartment with good food on site and large pool, all at a very reasonable price, you can not do better than this.

Will we be back? - You bet!

Thank you Jerry & Nicole (and daughters) for such a welcoming and relaxing stay.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a wonderful week on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. This was our first visit and we can thoroughly recommend the island. The Vzyantio apartments were well positioned for both the airport, Argostoli and a base to travel to other parts of the island.

The apartments were perfect for us - well presented, cleaned every day and with beautiful views. Nicole, Gerry and family were lovely hosts and even met us at the airport to show us where the apartments were.

The pool area was ideal for those afternoons in the sun, lots of room and good sized pool. We ate at the restaurant a few evenings and the food was delicious!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you stay here but you do need a car.

Thanks Nicole, Gerry and family!
