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
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.
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!

Stayed 09 Jun 2015 with Family
An amazing, beautiful and well equipped villa. 4 generations of our family stayed and we didn't want to leave! We would highly recommend Villa Diana
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!
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!!
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.

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!
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!
I'll start with the villa. It's awesome. Looks and feels right at home in the island countryside. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and big pluses go to the pool and terraces. The neighbors, Tim and Joy have been both fun and helpful. Kefalonia is beautiful, especially in June, and we were fortunate to see most of it's attractions. We (a group of 8) gladly recommend the villa and the island. Thanks again Sharon.
Drogati Caves-Fabulous cave system, once used by Maria Callas for a concert. A palace of stalactites and stalagmites.
Melessani Lake -Be rowed around the underground lake in awe of your surroundings, and hear the fascinating story of how the water comes to be there.
Saint Gerasimos Monastery -Home to the remains of Saint Gerasimos, patron saint of Kefalonia. In the garden is the large plane tree that was planted by St Gerasimos in the 16th century. With church interior that is quite amazing. It is a working monastery, so all the usual rules about dressing modestly apply.
Myrtos Beach-One of the most stunning views of Kefalonia. Argostoli-The islands capital, the place for you if enjoy great outdoor cafe society. Many shops, restaurants and tavernas. Fiskardo/Assos- Picturesque harbour villages. Mount Aenos national park with its eagles soaring overhead.
Other Activities: JETSKI, BOWLING, WATER PARK.
