Excellent villa with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with outstanding views . Super quick responses to questions from the owners . Kitchen well stocked and furnished comfortably . Had a few power cuts when 6 people staying, perhaps due to overload on air conditioning system. However this caused only mild inconvenience . Second visit this year and no hesitation in recommending.

Stunning Property in a Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

Although we have been to the area a few times we were unable to find the villa so as previous we went to the supermarket where the owner told us to follow him (great guy who helped us last year) - upon arrival we all loved the views - the size of the villa and beautiful pool. The villa was spotless, spacious & airy with lots of light & great views from every window. We travelled with our 2 adult children so needed the space for them (age 22 & 24) and this suited all of us fine - they both had thier own room and ensuite shower room. The double room also had ensuite and there is also a bathroom downstairs (wc & bath) which also had the washing machine in. All rooms had good working air conditioning comfortable beds and plenty of linen / towels (inc towels for the pool) - the kitchen had everything you would need for preparing and cooking meals and there was also a nice BBQ (although needs lights as a bit dark when cooking at night) - outside the pool area was brilliant to play games or relax - in fact we are beach bums but we stayed at the villa most days just having fun or chilling. In fact it is probably the 1st holiday that the TV did not get switched on!! Although we used the bbq a few nights for dinner we also went to the local village and beach front for several meals and all are reasonably priced (average 2 courses with 2ltrs wine for 4 people was 60 euro) i cannot recommend any particular taverna because we liked them all - we also spent most nights after dinner at the cocktail bar and tried to work our way down the list !! (about 5/6 euro each) but we will need to book again to complete this task!! As mentioned we went to the supermarket for directions but we also used the same shop all week for all of our supplies - everything you need is there (no need to pack toiletries either) but we did buy our bbq meat from the butchers in Skala (the sausages are the best ever tasted) & the bakers in the main street of Skala has the best home made cheese & spinach pies - there are no negatives about the property at all and we will aim to go back again. I would also like to mention how easy it was to book and receive information from the owners. The Reids Surrey

Search and You Will Find

  • 4 of 5

We managed to find the village of Lourdata easily enough (about 30-40 mins from airport), but struggled to find the villa itself. We managed to find Alexis (the villa handyman) at the Klimatis taverner, who seemed surprised that we couldn't find it, and he gave us further directions. This was still in vein, and as my husband was not about to admit defeat by stopping and asking directions a second time, we drove up, down and around for a further hour or so. Gazing out the car window, through clenched teeth, I established that the mini-markets and taverners were quite spread out.

Villa eventually found, it did not disappoint and was light, spacious, modern, comfortable and well-equipped. As there was only the two of us, not having to share a bathroom with my husband was sheer bliss (v. nice bathrooms too). There were plenty of coat hangers in the wardrobes, ample towels and pillows (which weren't filled with rocks). There was even a pump for my lilo, but if we'd found this before the morning we left to go home, I'd have missed out on watching my husband turn blue and faint (lilo bought from local mini-market, where assistant had offered to blow it up for me - an offer which was declined by my husband).

The pool itself was 'lush' (as we like to say in Bristol) - good size, spotlessly clean, and lit up at night. The views were as described, and apart from a chap in the olive grove in front of the villa thwacking the olives off his trees, it was incredibly peaceful.

I tend to rate villas by their 'stickiness'. I can usually tell from the photos of the kitchen whether I need to pack the bleach (I'm also known as 'OCD Fi'). I am pleased to say that the Iremia scored a zero rating. The washing machine was in good working order, and as a dustpan and brush was supplied, I was able to sweep the floors to my heart's content (they weren't dirty, I just find it therapeutic).

The only downside (for us, anyway) were the steep hills. We managed to walk to a taverner on the first night, but then again, we were drunk. It took us a good half hour to walk back up from the beach area (which has several good taverners, including the Klimatis), and could definitely be described as 'arduous' (an adjective avoided like the plague). All the local taverners were accessible by car within minutes, and therefore alcohol could really only be imbibed post-meal (by my husband, anyway!!).

Would recommend for light-drinkers, keen drivers or serious self-caterers.

Great relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday staying this first class villa. The villa is fantastically situated on the hillside above Lourdas beach with south facing views over the sea to Zante. It has very modern facilities throughout with 3 good bedrooms, each with its own en suite and air conditioning plus an extra downstairs bathroom, and a well provided for kitchen. The pool was perfect for us. On arrival everything in the villa and pool area was ready and beautifully clean. The villa manager and cleaner attended as promised.

The walk up to the villa from the beach can be a bit of a strain especially in the heat of the day or after a meal and a few drinks in the evening. To access the beach on foot the best route, being both picturesque and terraced, is along the grassy path beside Thorntons Tea Shop which serves a decent beer and frappe.

We ate at most of the local tavernas and got good value. The best meals were definitely at the Olive Lounge and Andromedas but it was reflected in the cost.

We visited places all around the beautiful island of kefalonia but most enjoyed Fiskardo (long drive) Sami and Skala. Two bays worth a visit are Karavados, mostly rock but some sand, and Avithos -a sandy bay.

Lourdas is a quiet friendly place with a fantastic beach and good variety of tavernas. It suited us perfectly but families with teenagers may find it too quiet.

All in all a great holiday.

Fantastic Time Had By All!

  • 5 of 5

This luxury villa is beautifully located on a mountain side with stunning views all round. Stylishly decorated with excellent facilities inside and out. The perfect base for our daily adventures either on foot or by car and no day was complete without several dips in the fantastic, clean and well-maintained swimming pool.

The people of Lourdas village are very friendly, as are the cats. Please feed the cats if you can!

A visit to Thornton's Welsh Tea Rooms in the 'Square' at the foot of the hill is a must and just down the road to the right, Dionysus restaurant is an excellent find for eating in and out. The menu is great and includes delicious traditional Greek specialites and superb take away pizzas which they can deliver - details are in the villa, just phone them up.

The villa manager, Alexis and his wife, Errieta took care of our every need, even sorting a taxi for our reluctant, but very scenic journey back to the airport.

Most Highly Recommended - See you again soon!

Villa Iremia is located within the charming Greek village of Lourdas. Lourdas is located at the bottom of Mount Ainos and enjoys an exceptional micro-climate. The natural vegetation consists of cypress trees, olive and pine trees, but you can also see exotic palm and banana trees. Lourdas bay is on the south coast of Kefalonia and is one of the largest bays of the island and is fringed by over 2 miles of sand and pebble beach. The beach is within 800m walking distance down a steep incline through the village past the famous plane tree and natural spring, but the walk up is only for the fittest! In the village itself there are several restaurants, tavernas and small shops. Argostoli, the capital town 10km away, is a bustling cosmopolitan town with a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Many an evening has been spent in one of the excellent restaurants surrounding the large square watching the exciting entertainment. Here you will find a range of boutiques and designer shops.
