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.

Impressive accommodation in a fabuloous location

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous holiday in a luxury villa and a wonderful location. All our needs were catered for both inside and out. The accommodation was excellent with the villa clean, bright and well maintained and all bedrooms having their own bathroom and some with balconies.The facilities provided in the outside pool and eating area ensured the alfresco experience was superb. The views from the roof terrace and the balconies said it all.

Within a 3 minute walk to beautiful beaches , it was the most perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries.

A five minute car journey took us to a resort and so gave us the best of both worlds and a further ten minutes saw us in the island's capital Argostoli. Here waterside restaurants provided the most delicious of dishes and a shopping experience in a lovely pedestrianised area.

A fabulous holiday and experience which we intend to repeat!

A truly luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

The owners' description of the villa matches exactly what we experienced. Quiet, peaceful very well appointed and spotlessly clean. A well equipped kitchen and lots of outside seating and eating areas and a great BBQ. The beaches are safe and gentle 5 minute walk away. Lots of good restaurants nearby and plenty of places to visit. The information file at the villa was very useful. We had a really lovely holiday and we are returning later in the season - can't wait.
