Boat trips to neighbouring Ithika are also very popular. The snorkeling at locations all around the island is excellent, the closed being at Agios Thomas which is excellent for snorkeling!

Wonderful beaches: Villa Agios Thomas is beside some of the best beaches on Kefalonia! There is a lovely nearby beach of Agios Thomas which is a fantastic safe beach for children. There is also a very good area for snorkelling! The nearby beach of Trapezaki is a lovely very long, sandy beach which is a fantastic beach for swimming, exploring and you can walk as far as Lourdes and follow the very long, sandy beach.

Why Mary chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

Because this family villa near the olive groves is situated within walking distance to a beautiful sandy beach of Agios Thomas with two traditional Greek beach tavernas.Also this villa is located near the fantastic beaches of Trapezaki, Lourdata, Avithos and Spartia. There are lovely coves and small beaches nearby and you can walk from Trapezaki to Lourdata. The beaches are the most beautiful on the island but are never crowded!

What makes this villa unique

On the edge of the traditional village of Karavados, with beautiful sea views of Zante, lovely traditional beach of Agios Thomas which is best for swimming and snorkelling!. Trapezaki is such a large beach that there is plenty to explore and fantasic swimming. There are two nearby Greek tavernas that you can walk to - you don't need to drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Villa Agios Thomas in September - two families in the villa. This is a great villa, very spacious and comfortable and beautifully furnished. It is a great location close to two beautiful beaches, one local beach nearby - very safe for children and two lovely tavernas for lunch. Another very big sandy beach which feels very private and never crowded! We had a great time on Kefalonia and we will be returning to this villa this year.

Beautiful community, spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Property is pristine and in excellent condition. Whatever minor problems were present were immediately fixed by Maria, who was also extremely helpful with some necessary medical referrals. She was great and so was our 7 week stay! Hope to be back.

Agios Thomas Villa is set in the peaceful village of Karavados.I would recommend hiring a car for your stay so as to explore the fantastic villages and sandy coves that are in easy travel distance from the villa. There was a great welcome pack on arrival and the villa is of the highest order, very clean and in a great location looking down toward the sea. The fact it has Wi-Fi is a bonus. The couple who look after the villa are only a phone call away if needed and are very knowlegable about the island. There are two good supermarkets on the way to Argostali (which is well worth a visit ). Overall we had a great 2 weeks and would recommend the villa to anyone

Perfect - Villa Agios Thomas

  • 5 of 5

Villa Agios Thomas was just perfect for our requirements. it is well equipped and furnished very nicely. I loved the pictures they have on the walls. The garden is lovely and the terrace is the perfect place to unwind with a sun-downer or for breakfast and the BBQ is great. The beds are really comfortable - we slept really well while there. The mosquito nets on the windows are great as are the shutters to keep the heat out! The local supermarket is very handy and they also have a restaurant. Agios Thomas Beach is lovely - very handy for your morning swim and has a choice of places to eat. We explored a lot of the island but by far preferred Agios Thomas beach. there's something really nice and relaxing about it. We also used the Karavados Beach Hotel pool and bar sometimes. We received a lovely welcome basket on arrival and the Villa manager was very helpful. The owner, Mary, was also very helpful on our initial enquiry about the villa and responded to all our queries very quickly. Overall we had a lovely, relaxing holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Agios Thomas to anyone.

beautiful, spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay with our 3 children at villa Agios Thomas. We were welcomed by the very helpful and friendly Englishman who maintains the villa. It was clean and tidy and there was a nice welcome basket with cookies for the kids, jam, wine and beer and first necessities like water, coffee and bread. The supermarket was a two-minute walk, as well as the adjacent restaurant where we enjoyed our first evening meal. The villa is large and comfortable and situated in a quiet neighbourhood. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and the kitchen is well-equipped. The sea-breeze makes the July Greek temperatures bearable and if you turn on the AC for an hour, an hour before bedtime, you will have a good night's sleep, since the windows have musquito-screens and the beds are really comfortable. There was an enormous book with information, leaflets and recommendations, which was very useful. In the late afternoons we would often go to the hotel pool down the road where the children would enjoy themselves in the water or playing table-tennis and we would drink an ice-coffee. Mary, the owner, is very fast at responding to e-mail and questions. We would certainly recommend villa Agios Thomas to anyone looking for an address to spend an relaxing family vacation.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of friends in Villa Agios Thomas and we had a fantastic time there! The villa is beautifully furnished and very well equipped for a holiday home and the beds are so comfortable. The villa has a lovely garden also - great for sitting out with a cool beer! Close to two great beaches - Agios Thomas and Trapezaki and also close to two really good tavernas. We would definitely recommend this villa and we hope to come again next year, for two weeks this time!
