About Roxanne Seroglou and Savvas Zoumpoulis

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.

Roxanne Seroglou and Savvas Zoumpoulis purchased this villa in 2006

Why Roxanne Seroglou and Savvas Zoumpoulis chose Argostolion

'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.

Perfect except for the concrete beds!

  • 2 of 5

I love this location, villa and everything about this holiday with one notable exception.

All the beds are composed of a slab of concrete with a mattress on top. As I am perhaps taller and heavier than an average Greek person, but by no means larger than many western europeans, I am happy with a firm bed, but it needs to support and not just be hard. Even putting one mattress on top of another was little help as the mattresses seemed to be merely hard and not to the standard I am used to. Hence trying to sleep was near to impossible! I have not encountered this problem on my previous four visits to Kefalonia nor when visiting other parts of Greece.

For us, this is such a shame as we would love to return but with 14 nights of very poor sleep, I think that this is very unlikely.

We thank you for your kindnesses and that of your housekeeper(s). Your villa and location were perfect in every way except for this one vital ingredient. I am sorry to only give two stars but beds and sleeping comfortably are such a vital part of any holiday. Please do let us know if you ever resolve this issue as we would love to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I am really sad hearing that you had no good sleep... It is indeed vital for holidays, although on our many contacts, you mentioned nothing of the kind! Also I must say, that the traditional character of an island house, as well as the photos themselves did indicate the exact form of beds and their construction!! Again I am sorry about your experience, yet nothing was different to what shown...

Lovely Villa in Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing break this is the ideal location. The villa is approached through a small friendly village and affords total privacy. The view across the valley is breathtaking and it is worth staying at the villa for this alone. The villa has everything that you would need, the pool is excellent and the garden is so well looked after with a large number of trees laden with fruit. The location is excellent just a 10 minute drive to Argostoli - where you can park this side of the lake and walk across into the town, the sunset is lovely. In essence you can have both worlds, the feeling of being in a remote village with the privacy that it provides but also access to the largest town. We stayed with our our two teenage children and had a lovely stay - the Wifi kept them in touch with the outside world so all was good. We have stayed in a number of villa'a across Europe and I would say that this is most definitely one of the best that we have stayed in and I would recommend a stay here.

Paradiso Indeed

  • 5 of 5

As I write this we still have 2 days to go on this wonderful holiday. I’m sitting on the terrace listening to the birds and the sound of goat bells down in the valley below. This place is truly a paradise. It’s difficult to know what to say that hasn’t been said before.

This isn’t a holiday home, it’s a home from home on holiday. It’s so well equipped and beautifully designed. Everything you might need is here, down to coffee and filters, basic kitchen essentials such as oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, herbs - this list goes on. The bedroom is huge (as is the bed!) and lovely fluffy towels are provided. All you need to bring are your own beach towels.

The garden is beautifully landscaped with plenty of trees to lie under if you want some shade. If you want the sun well your own private pool is waiting invitingly. And who thought of putting a small fridge by the pool? A touch of genius saving you having to go up to the house for that essential cold drink.

We took our meals out on the terrace while watching the shadows lengthen across the valley and seeing the lights in the hillside villages go on in the evenings. There is a good barbecue although you will need to buy your own charcoal and lighters (we got ours in the well stocked AB supermarket just outside Argostoli).

It has been difficult to tear ourselves away from such a lovely spot but of course the island is waiting to be explored. We hired a car (absolutely essential) from Pefannis car hire at the airport. They are good and helpful and quite reasonable, especially if you offer to pay cash!

We’ve explored remote beaches (Petani, Myrtos and Porto Asteras are our favourites) and coastal villages (Assos and Sami are recommended) and have seen much of the island while criss crossing it. In the house are beach umbrellas and folding beach chairs and an insulated bag which are all very useful when spending a day on the beach.

But of course much of the credit for such a lovely holiday goes to Roxanne. Although she lives away from Kefalonia it feels as if she is there looking out for you. Before we came she would answer any questions very promptly and once we’d arrived she would phone up from time to time to check if everything was alright (it was) and if we needed anything (we didn’t). The house was cleaned and the linen changed every 4 days or so and is a credit to Roxanne and the cleaning lady. All in all this has to be the best place we have stayed in while on holiday. Thank you so much Roxanne

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

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.

Couldn't have wished for more

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
