Why Elias Tueta chose Lourdata

I first fell in love with Kefalonia which is the hidden gem of the Ionian sea. Then I got completely overwhelmed when I saw Rhakotis villa overseeing Lourdas beach

What makes this villa unique

The view will speak by itself when you arrive. Dedicated service by english speaking representatives will provide you with the comfort needed to complete your dream holidays

Guestbook comments from the manager

I've been to Greece many times, and have rented a villa in Kefalonia twice before. Even though I have been to Lourdas many times, I didn't know where Villa Rakotis was exactly, but that didn't matter because Karen, who manages the villa, met us at the airport and took us there. The best thing about Rakotis Villa is the view and the tranquility. I could have stayed there all day, but I didn't want to cook for 6 everyday - I needed a holiday! Anyway, I did cook a meal twice (in the very spacious and well equiped kitchen) and had 3 or 4 barbeques under the pergola looking down on Lourdas and across at Zakinthos. We felt like greek gods! The house was much more spacious than I was anticipating for a 3 bedroomed villa, and it was a luxury for each couple to have their own en-suite bathroom. The fittings were really top-notch quality (unlike the normal greek fittings I'm used to), and the large basement underneath was very useful for storing the beach things and suitcases that we didn't want clogging up the house. Finally, you'll need a car, but in any case there are 3 or 4 tavernas within 15 minutes walk, if you dont mind a bit of uphill waking! All in all, 10 out of 10 Rakotis!

Luxury in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Rhakotis villa and we were not disappointed in any way. Jeff met us at the airport and advised us on trips and restaurants and was always on hand if we had any queries or problems. It was lovely to meet his wife Sue as well. We bought along my daughter''s friend this year who loved the pool and the local beach where we hired a speedboat for the day. The weather was perfect, over 30 degrees every day, we appreciated the villa's air conditioning on our return from the beach. We would not hesitate in recommending Rhakotis villa to families and couples and hope to return in the future.

Beautiful villa, very nice hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have had a very pleasant holiday this summer in Kefalonia, actually just over a week since we returned home.

Villa Rhakotis, where we spent 11 days, contributed a lot to our being able to recharge our inner batteries, so to say.

Over the past twenty years, we haven't missed Greece for our holidays but with fews exceptions. We also had some unpleasant surprises in terms of accommodation, but I wholeheartedly confess that this villa has been a most inspired choice for us.

Nice building, great taste in decorating the rooms, everything we needed at hand. Nice and clean pool and, which was essential for us, a generous and secure outside space for our dog to explore. The splendid view of the sea, with the mountains behind offered us the environment we needed for total relaxation.

We also want to thank the owners, Elias and his wife , who gave us every information we needed to find the most interesting places on the island. Moreover, we did appreciate their readiness to solve any problem that may have arisen.

Thank you, dear friends. Hope to meet you again soon.

Ileana, Cristian, Iulia, Mihai, Horia and, of course, Sharp-pei Paco.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

From the ease of booking to the welcome we received at the airport, we could not fault the service we received. Geoff, Sue and Karen looked after us well in Kefalonia and were on hand should we need anything. The villa has beautiful views of the mountains to the rear and the sea to the front and is very well equipped. It was great that beach towels were provided and regularly changed as this keeps down the weight of your baggage - we haven't had this in other villas we have stayed at.

The villa is set in a peaceful location and was spotless and the pool and grounds very well maintained. Unless you are super fit the walk from the tavernas and the beach isn't an option so a car is essential but hire prices are very good. Lourdas is a great base for exploring the island and has a good beach with many sea front tavernas and small shops. We were not disappointed in any of the restaurants we used but special thanks to Spiros who made the most amazing birthday cake for one of our party . Best cake ever!

We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family and look forward to returning. Thanks Elias for a wonderful holiday.

The villa is breathtaking, spacious and everything you could require.

The pictures don't do it justice.

The pool is perfect to relax around with plenty of sunbeds and parasols.

Lourdas itself is a very quiet peaceful location the tavernas were spectacular and we didn't eat a poor meal the whole week. Maria supermarket was more than helpful and recommended some sandy beaches suitable for the Children we found avithos beach to be fantastic!

Karen and the cleaning crew of the villa were so helpful and made our stay perfect thank would love to return

Villa Rhakotis

  • 4 of 5

A lovely well equipped villa with amazing sea views. Ideal for a quiet holiday and a great base from which to explore the island. A car is essential as the villa is reached by a couple of very steep hills which you would only attempt to walk on cooler days. The villa was immaculately clean and tidy. It was cleaned twice each week and the pool and gardens were maintained regularly during our stay.

Customer service from Karen was excellent and we were very grateful that she met us at the airport and led us to the villa which would not be easy to find the first time.

Good local restaurants were the Olive Lounge and Adromeda.

We had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend.

Villa Rhakotis Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say that from booking the villa through to final checkout the customer service provided was second to none. Initial communication with Elias was speedy, Karen recommended a car hire company that provided a car at an excellent price and even turned up to the airport to meet us (no onerous queues!), Karen also met us and took us to the villa to show us around sp no worries about finding the villa. The pool was maintained to a high standard, several times a week and fresh line and towels were provided throughout the week. NOTHING was too much trouble, and either Karen, Sue or Geoff were always just a phone call away if needed. The villa is beautiful and the views stunning. Kefalonia is a lovely island and the people extremely friendly - when we locked ourselves out the greek neighbours provided the ice cream! I would not hesitate to recommend visiting Kefalonia and staying at Villa Rhakotis.
