Being an architect and trying to combine it with the love of the details, the common sense of hospitality with my husband,and the intention to give a certain personality to a 'vessel' of life (as each house should be), the feeling of sharing with others the real sense of making holidays, gives me a great pleasure. Owning also other properties in the touristic business, I believe that 'holidays' have become of the utmost importance to western civilisation.
Mrs Roxanne Seroglou purchased this villa in 2006
'Il Suo Paradiso' is really a paradise of relaxation... It combines the beautiful endless views with nature sounds, which everyone needs in order to relax from hectic ways of living. Apart from the actual beauty it also has a connection to previous generations, as passed down to us, reminding us our bonds to Kefalonia.
This property is by far the best we have ever stayed at in Kefalonia (and I've been visiting there since I was 10 years old)! When we arrived, the beauty of the place actually brought me to tears, I was in awe of the place!
The beautiful scenery, peace and quiet and every little detail of this house were just perfect. It is truly a home, rather than just a villa and you can tell it's been built and decorated with such love and attention to detail that you want to take care of it too!
The house is split over 2 levels and it is incredibly spacious. Not to mention how beautiful the gardens are, it is all so private there and it's a lovely place to watch the birds and other wildlife too.
Roxane cannot do enough for you, from answering any pre-departure questions to checking that you are OK on arrival. We were met at the house by Kalomoira who handed us the keys and took us through the house, she also did a thorough (and I mean very thorough) clean of the whole house during our stay and worked so hard.
Roxane even provided beach umbrellas so we borrowed one and took ourselves off to one of the many gorgeous beaches on the island, we had the whole beach to ourselves, would highly recommend the village of Zola and beach Aghia Kyriaki. Please bring your own beach towels though for the beach.
So many things have been thought of in this house, you really couldn't want for anything more!
Davgata is such a pretty village, there is one taverna called Asteras just a few minutes walk away and the owners are so friendly. They don't have a full menu but it's a great choice if you don't want to drive anywhere or don't want to cook. I would have loved a Kefalonia Meat Pie at some point, maybe next year!
The location really suited us just right, up in the hills with the goats, sheep and cows, it was just so perfect. Yet you are only a 15 minute drive to Argostoli to get main supplies or our favourite little souvlakia place in Peratata and other local shops are not far at all.
It is a great place to practice your Greek too, I love giving it a go even though I'm very slow at it, you do feel that being in a village you can practice it more than being in just one of the resorts and it gave me more confidence to try more and stop being worried about making a fool of myself!
This really is a wonderful property and Kefalonia will be in our hearts forever, no matter what.
Thank you Roxane, Savvas and to Kalomoira, see you next June!
The property is really well maintained and very pretty, in a quiet area immersed in nature. The pictures cannot show the true beauty and size of the property and grounds.
We had the best holiday imaginable at Il Suo Paradiso. A truly stunning setting. We all loved the pool. Such a beautiful place.
The Villa is furnished to a high standard, very clean and well equipped (like home). We had a marvellous time during our two weeks.
We rented a car (essential) in order to get around - to go shopping and go for dinners, and to see the island. However, the place is so nice you really don't want to go anywhere.
Davgata, does have a lovely taverna. With excellent food and beautiful views and just five minutes stroll from the villa.
Alice, our house keeper was very efficient - she did an excellent job.
Roxane, the owner - what an incredibly nice lady! She phoned us regularly to check we had everything we needed, she was on the Greek mainland but she never let us feel that anything was too much trouble -
Thank you dear Roxane!
In a word, we highly recommend this property.
I still daydream about this place and we've been back two weeks already. I felt very close to nature here. We are a family of four with two teenage children and they were happy in and out of the pool or on their ipads/phones (there is a good wifi connection in the house and on the verandah).
At night we had nightjars diving into the pool for a drink, bats flying around and could hear the hooting of Scops Owls. By day we could hear the goats wondering around with their bells, not to mention the cicadas which are extremely loud!
The house is excellently equipped with everything you would need and has a basic stock of salt, pepper etc. The lovely housekeeper Alice comes every couple of days to water the plants and gives you clean towels (you don't need to take your own, you get three each) plus you get a change of bedding during the week. You wouldn't know Alice was there as she is very discreet and quick (but also very friendly). The pool cleaner also comes once a week.
There is a basic taverna in the village which we ate at once. Apart from the fantastic fresh Greek salad there wasn't any traditional Greek food available the day we went there, or fish, just meat and potatoes, but they were very nice and cheap. I would recommend if you fancy a night off cooking and driving. Otherwise we had a couple of bbq's at the house and ate out - prices are reasonable. Argostoli is only 10-15 minutes away and you can get all you need there supplies wise and I would recommend you go and see the turtles in the harbour, they're fantastic!
This house is owned by someone who wants you to have a good holiday. Roxanne is easy to contact and will sort any queries or problems out instantly, and the housekeeper Alice is wonderful.
The people in Kefalonia were very friendly and giving and never once did we feel we were annoying by asking directions or for information. The roads aren't great to drive on, and the maps we could get hold of were very basic and didn't signpost roads that were now closed, or recently built. Sami is worth a visit, as is Fiskardo (more expensive than anywhere else we visited) and Myrtos Bay beach is beautiful.
I'm not one to say I want to return somewhere as I like to try new places all the time - but we may well make an exception this time as this house is perfect and I really liked the Greek people.
It was a privilege to experience all on offer at 'Suo Paradiso' created with care and attention to detail by the owners (Roxane and her husband Savvas) with the support of their housekeeper Alice.
Greatly enjoyed early morning walks with breathtaking scenery from the villa up to Dillinate. Dinner at Asteras Taverna in Davgata - contrasting with all that Argostoli has to offer - ferry over to Lassi and touring the island with incredible views around each corner.
The people on this island are warm and giving, taking a pride in what they offer the tourist.
Fantastisk semester på Kefalonia, Davgata, Il Suo Paradiso. Underbar utsikt från huset, berg, dalar, hav och ljudet av getternas bjällror, zikador, lugnt och stillsamt. Mycket fint hus med pool, rent och snyggt. Många matbutiker i området mot Argostoli, marknad för frukt och grönsaker, bagerier, restauranger och annat för matintresserade. Mycket vackra omgivningar och utflyktsmål till bl,a Skala, Sami, Lixouri osv. Rekommenderar alla naturintresserade och övriga som uppskattar lugn och ro.
Fantastic property exactly as described. Well maintained, clean with lots of thoughtful touches. Roxanne could not have been more helpful.Perfect location, far enough away from everywhere to be relaxing and and too far from the main town to collect groceries etc. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday. You will not regret your booking
Davgata is a very quiet village in the hill area only 5 klm away from the capital town Argostoli. Although near situated, nothing disturbs the silence apart from bird singing, cicades and sheep flocks. Ideal for country walks, bicycle riding, and romantic stay. In the village only 5 min by foot a fantastic traditional tavern with home cooked meals, exceptional view over Argostoli and Lixouri with own pool and coffee bar.
