About Sharon Williams

We come from Wales in UK a region famed for its lush countryside and mountains. We chose the site for Villa Diana because it has the same Idyllic countryside setting but without the RAIN.

Sharon Williams purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sharon Williams chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

We bought the land because we fell in love with its idyllic countryside location. It is surrounded by fruit groves and lush greenery with fabulous views towards Mount Aenos.

It is ideally placed on the Island to be able to access the many beautiful beaches and attractions Kefalonia has to offer. As we intend spending time there all year round, the land we built Villa Diana on is on the outskirts of the villages of Keramies and Spartia which is a residential area of predominantly Greek people, unlike some of the tourist villages such as Skala and Lourdas which become very quiet in the Winter months.

What makes this villa unique

This Villa was designed and built by one of the best building firms on the Island whose attention to detail has created our dream holiday home. We wanted to share our holidays with family but have our own space, those little darlings can be a bit overwhelming sometimes! In Villa Diana we can shut our door and have complete privacy whilst upstairs our extended family can do the same which makes times when we choose to all be together a pleasure!

Villa Diana Kefalonia in Idyllic Countryside Setting with Large Private Pool.
average rating of 5.0 based on 17 reviews

Superb Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were made very welcome to Kefalonia by Villa manager, Joy , who quickly arranged our trip to Villa (all of 10 minutes)

Villa itself was perfect , in its own beautiful grounds, with pool sparkling in sunshine!

Nothing was to much trouble during our stay, Joy was a source of so much local info.

Local taverna was outstanding! With delicious local dishes.

What a perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of us that stayed in the Villa. Our first impression was of the caretaker of the home who lived nearby, she greeted us with a great big beautiful smile. Anytime we needed something, if we did, they were right there to assist. While in Greece we had rented 2 different villas, and this one knocked it out of the park. We had a full kitchen, and plenty of room for everyone. We were mostly family with a couple friends. We were close to the beaches, restaurants, and everything else. We rented cars and mopeds, and got around the island just fine. I would highly recommend this villa. My uncle who owns a house a mile away wanted the villas info for other people to rent when they come out. By the way, the owner of the villa went the extra mile to make sure we were well taken care of, a very sweet gal!

from moment we arrived we felt sooo relaxed this lovely Villa and its beautiful grounds.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful Villa! Staff keep it immaculately clean, Villa is very well equipped and beds are sooooo comfy,!

Staff very friendly, couldnt do enough to ensure we had a good time. Rory the chef cooked us a delicious meal, there was so much food we were eating it for days!

Pool is quite large, plenty of room for our large group and well equipped with poolside sunbeds.

When we did venture out we found that only a short drive away were many beautiful beaches , particularly recommend St Thomas Beach and Avithos Beach which had tavernas serving delicious traditional dishes, however if you want a beach with Watersports there are the beaches of Lasssi and Skala.

Will be returning to this Beautiful Island and of course will be staying in Villa Diana!!

Perfect Villa on a Beautiful Island!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning family friendly Villa very well equipped with all you could possibly need for a wonderful holiday. Nestling in lush countryside this Villa is perfectly placed as a base to explore the many attractions of this beautiful Greek paradise! Many beaches only a short drive away. I particularly recommend St Thomas Beach excellent for both sunbathing and snorkelling. A short walk away, the Olive Grove Taverna served delicious greek dishes in a fabulous garden setting. We booked Rory the chef one evening, he cooked and served a delicious BBQ , he even washed the dishes (the food was so plentiful we had another meal from the leftovers! )

From our initial enquiry the owner, Sharon and manager, Joy could not have done more to ensure we all had the best family holiday ever!! Cannot recommend highly enough.

Rebecca from Offham

We had a fantastic two weeks at Villa Diana. It was very clean and the villa was cleaned twice a week. The local housekeeper made us very welcome. The pool is a great size and our children...aged 6 and 4...just loved it. The villa has a very good feel to it and it has been well thought out...with an outside fridge for your convenience. There is also an outside darts board and plenty of toys by the pool. The local tavernas were great and the beaches had something for everyone. The children loved watching the sheep being herded once a day down a nearby lane. We will definitely recommend this villa to others and will visit it again if we decide to go back to Kefalonia. We can also recommend Rory the chef....he was fab and very knowledgeable about the area too. I cant recommend him enough. Finally, the owners were so helpful beforehand offering some excellent information and links to websites. Although there is no sea view, you have a lovely view of the mountains and it is very peaceful and sooo relaxing. The sea is just 5 mins away.....It is only a 15 min drive to the capital to pick up cash, see the turtles and to do a spot of shopping. You will not be disappointed if you book this!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

The best Villa holiday I have ever had! Beautiful location, loads of privacy and huge pool perfect for cooling down from the stonking Greek sunshine. The Villa itself is perfect with large, clean and well decorated rooms, stocked with all necessary amenities and more bathrooms than we needed! Easy drive into Argostoli and the rest of Kefalonia. Please never sell this Villa so we can come back again!
