Local Facilities & Amenities: Villa Nima is located in a convenient position to enjoy local facilities. Within easy walking distance of the villa there are various restaurants, shops, supermarkets and traditional tavernas. We would highly recommend the food at the local tavernas but also a short drive away are many options for dining out.

The local beach is Lourdas which can be reached by foot, short car journey or local bus service. Lourdas has an excellent beach front for sunbathing and swimming. In addition there are numerous local tavernas where you can eat sit and relax whilst enjoying the sea view over Lourda bay.

Our local favourites for fine foods is the Olive Lounge, La Mer, & Lorrain's Magic Hill (Lourdas Beach) but explore and find your own delights!!!

If you want a local beer and snack then you dont have to travel far to Afrodites where you will find a warm welcome from the family run taverna.

If you walk or drive down to the local beach enjoy Klismata - fab food and lose yourselves to an instant relax by the sea.

About The Owner

We fell in love with Kefalonia several years ago and then found Villa Nima - the previous owners had looked after it so well and had scored 5/5 for all their reviews - as a result, we didn't change anything other than put a fence up for added privacy. We use the same team for the villa maintenance, cleaning etc. so hopefully, the good reviews will continue! Enjoy!

Why The Owner chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

Villa Nima benefits from being off the beaten track, enjoying peaceful surroundings with stunning views, yet within less than 5 minutes walk from the bars, restaurants and shops of Vlachata.

Perfect place for relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 week family holiday at Villa Nima. The villa is in a perfect location, with the hills behind and the views over the coast in front. It's very peaceful as the villa looks over olive groves with goats meandering around. There is a villa either side but this did not affect our holiday in any way. The villa is extremely comfortable, is furnished to a high standard and has everything you could possibly need. We had wall to wall sunshine when we were there and found there was enough shade to get out of the sun when needed and the air con helped us keep cool at night.

The centre of the village of Vlachata is a 5 minute walk away and has 3 mini markets as well as a number of restaurants. The larger village of Lourdata is approx 25 min walk away and although there is an upwards climb on the way back, it's well worth the walk for a different choice of restaurants as well as a sandy beach. We would recommend eating at Lorraine's Magic Hill and a local taverna called Lithero at the far right end of the beach by the little harbour, that sells beautifully cooked fresh fish. There is another small beach just over 1km from the villa, which is practically deserted. Although there is no taverna there and you can only access it by foot on a fairly steep path, it's worth it if you like crystal clear sea, a sandy beach and peace and quiet.

The manager Angela was very helpful, recommending places to visit as well as being on the end of the phone as needed. We hired a car for only 6 of the 14 days and managed to see most of the island. It was very unspoilt and there was plenty to see. Assos and Petani beach were memorable places to visit. Argostoli, the capital is only 25 mins away by car and there is a fantastic deli for barbecue food on the left as you start driving into the town. I would also recommend a fish restaurant called Kiani Akti built on stilts over the water. However if you are looking for night clubs and like partying into the early hours, Kefalonia is not the place for you.

All in all I would highly recommend staying at Villa Nima as well as Kefalonia itself and we hope to return at some point in the future.

Kefalonia is a beautiful island of contrasts with its variety of ancient ruins, which run alongside the famous beaches, glorious forests, mountain ranges and golden sands.

The Island also has many picturesque villages scattered all around its mountainous area, plains and its beautiful coastline. Look to visit the varied places of interest and have fun exploring the island. Do not miss the town of Argostoli, Monastery of Panagia Vlachernon, the fortress of St George, the beautiful beach of Lourda, Ratzakli, Sami, Agia Efimia, Assos, the beautiful beach of Mirtos, the lake of Melisani, the cave of Drogorati and many others.

All of the beauty and interest spots on the island can be easily reached by car. You can also take advantage of the natural beauty spots, and take your pick of the beautiful landscape and natural beaches as you travel around. The mountain areas and natural parks are as nature made them in stunning fashion and take you into the heart of the natural island.
