Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Kefalonia (Cephalonia) - Villa Zephyros

3 Bedroom villa, sleeps 6

Villla Zephyros is a luxury 3 bedroom villa in an enviable position, it is only a few hundred metres from the beautiful beaches of Minies and Ammes. It stands in mature gardens and it has a great outside entertaining/BBQ area, positioned beside the large swimming pool. (29ft x 10ft). The villa has free wifi and there is also a roof terrace to make the most of the wonderful views. The villa is set beside a large vineyard, adding to the peaceful atmosphere enjoyed here. A 5 minute walk to the beach enables guests to totally relax in every way. It is equipped to the highest standards, with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the fourth bedroom is on the lower ground floor of the villa. It has a fully fitted modern kitchen, and internal and external dining areas. The villa is ideally situated as it is away from the hustle and bustle but has facilities such as mini markets, tavernas etc which are close by. The busy resort of Lassi with a wide range of water sports is a 5 -10 minute drive away and the main town of Argostoli is a 10 - 15 minute drive away. There is also a personal chef available on request to make your holiday extra special.

A car is recommended so that you can make the most of seeing the beautiful island of Kefalonia and experience some of the excellent local food and wine the tavernas have to offer. On your arrival at the villa the property manager will visit you to show you around the villa and to give you some useful tips on where to eat, the best beaches, best places to visit etc. The property manager is on call 24 hours a day to offer you peace of mind during your stay at the villa.

We also offer a personal chef service. Our chef will visit you at the villa and prepare a first class meal in your kitchen. You can either choose to watch and maybe learn a thing or two, or you can relax around the pool while the chef does all the work. The dining area will be prepared and you will be served either inside, or outside, once you have finished your meal, the table will be cleared, the dishes washed and the kitchen left as it was found. For further details contact us by e-mail or telephone (details are on the contact page).

About Property Manager

The owners Andrew and Caroline North live in Cambridge and both have Greek connections. Andrew's father was from Kefalonia and Caroline has friends and family in the Peloponnese and Athens. They both speak Greek and love the Greek language and culture. They spend about 6 weeks at the villa every year and plan to retire there eventually.

Why Property Manager chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

The owners chose Minies because of its location which offers everything you could possibly want. Convenience as it is close to the main town, popular resorts and the airport. Privacy and seclusion as it is just a few minutes' walk from safe, quiet beaches. The owners chose the villa because of its convenient lay out, lovely pool, gardens and outside entertaining space. It is perfect for holidays with family and friends.

Villa hits the spot in every way. Location ideal for seeing all parts of this beautiful Island. Ignore the proximity to Airport - low activity does not interfere with the enjoyment of the villa and its fine pool. Booking process simple and subsequent directions easy to follow. Followed owners tips for trips (including car rental) - disappointed with food at Kiana Restaurant (Stilts) and enjoyed our sunset experience at Koutoumis Paradise Restaurant locally, rather than the one suggested. Local beach fascinating as Turtles had laid eggs - we did not see them hatch but wish them well! Beach was clean and water safe plus the beer at the snack bar was good quality. Lassi - a very good source of eating establishments - but if you want fresh meat for the BBQ then use specialist shops or visit Carrefour where they have a selection neither AB or Lidl can match. Do not let the low cost of wines deter you - they are generally acceptable as is the house wine when eating out. Our party of 4 adults would definitely go again if we visit Kefalonia in the future.

The perfect place for a busy mother to relax

  • 5 of 5

// We have been staying at Villa Zephyros for our holidays since 2012. The first time we arrived at the villa we all said it was like coming to paradise.

The villa offers great value for money and is maintained and furnished to a high standard just like home from home.

We like the design of the villa which is on four floors with a roof terrace and garden terraces. It is situated in a secluded area but there are three nice beach bars within walking distance. The sandy beach near the villa is a small cove safe for swimming and playing on the beach. There are sun loungers and umbrellas for hire on the beach.

It is situated near the far end of the runway but there are not many planes and the children love to watch the the planes landing from the roof.

We have been on great day trips to Ithaka, Lixouri, Fiskardo, Zakinthos and many more. We all love Argostoli, the main town which is about 10 minutes in the car. It is a great place for adults and children alike especially for watching the huge water turtles by the sea front and it is lively in the evenings.

The villa is especially nice for relaxing with friends by the pool.

We are looking forward to going back again next year, we are glad we found it./

Lovely villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We (2 parents, 2 grandparents, 2 children) spend a lovely 10 days at this beautiful, and very well stocked villa. Lots of outside space and a fantastic pool - our 5 year old described it as his "dream house". An initial visits by the manager (Angela) was extremely helpful, and cleaners, pool-cleaner, gardener came during our stay ensuring the villa was spotlessly maintained. Conveniently close to the airport (a 10 minute drive) - very few incoming and outgoing flights did not disturb, and overall the villa was very quiet. Close to local beaches, but (certainly in August) too far to walk to Tavernas or Supermarkets for small children. However car hire was straightforward and reasonably priced, and allowed us to explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia, Very recommended for a family holiday.

Beautiful villa in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the villa. Everything was as described and the rooms were all beautifully furnished. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the fantastic pool and barbecue area and also spent many happy hours at the local beach -which was within easy strolling distance of the villa. There are lovely places to eat close by and Argostoli, a great place to do some shopping, is only a short drive away. All in all, the villa and location provided everything we needed for a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Thank you, we hope to return very soon.

  • 5 of 5

arrived to find everything was as described. Clean spacious and light throughout. I especially liked the pool area with outside BBQ, perfect for entertaining.It was a good base to see the Island from, we did a few day trips to Fiskardo, Sami and Skala. The longest journey was 2 hours so easily doable in a day. It's close to the airport so easy to get to, with a small beach close by, had everything we could ask for. Perfect holiday home and destination. Hope to come back soon!
