Fabulous Villa Utopia
We spent 10 days at Villa Utopia and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is off the beaten track but if you want somewhere that is private and tranquil then this is for you. It’s only a 10 minute drive into town with numerous restaurants. The villa had everything we needed and was clean and spacious. It’s positioned in large grounds/gardens with stunning views over the bay and mountains. The pool is a good size with plenty of terracing to relax on sun beds or deckchairs. The owner, Sofia, was very friendly and welcoming and a small problem we had with the electric gate was attended to within 5 minutes. We very much recommend this villa and we’re sure to return at some point as the location and facilities offered at Villa Utopia were the best we have experienced over many years of villa holidays with HomeAway.
Tranquility with stunning views
If you're looking for peace and relaxation in luxury accommodation it's here. From the moment you drive through the electric gates you're greeted with the most stunning views that have to be seen to be appreciated. The villa is excellently furnished and maintained both inside and out. Sofia is just a text message away if any help is needed, but has the perfect skill of being both helpful yet respectful of your privacy. The villa is located close to Sami, Agia Efimia and Antisamos Beach. A car is clearly essential but everything you could want is within a very short drive. However, you may never want to leave the generously sized pool where you can swim while watching the boats sail in and out of Sami harbour. We would recommend unreservedly.
The property is exactly as described. Very clean and well maintained. A beautiful villa with stunning views. A short drive into Sami where there are numerous restaurants and shops. A very convenient location for exploring the Island, Assos is a must. Have already recommended the property to family and friends.
A perfect holiday in a stunning location
We spent two weeks at the Viila Utopia, with our three offspring (21,18,8). It is a stunning villa, clean, contemporary and all the comforts you need. The views are spectacular and the pool a great size. We were looked after wonderfully by Sophia and her family, nothing too much trouble. BBQ area great for eating in and Sami has lots of lovely restaurants to choose from. Local beach of Anti Samos stunning and it is a good location for seeing other places from. Myrtos beach not far away and must be visited - just amazing scenery. We loved Kephalonia and especially liked the peacefulness of Sami and the area we were staying. The villa is total get away from it all and I cannot recommend it highly enough, we will be visiting again!
Utopia.....it says it all!
We had the pleasure of being the very first guests to stay in the Villa Utopia! What can I say?.....from viewing the website it was clear that the views were going to be spectacular but until you are actually there and seeing it in the flesh, only then can it truly take your breath away! A beautiful location, stunning views down to the village of Sami and in an ideal spot to make the most of the Kefalonian sunshine all day! Sunbathers haven!
We spent the first of our two weeks in Kefalonia in Utopia and we had a number of plans to visit Myrtos beach, Fiskardo and Assos....however, we barely ventured away from the privacy of the villa. It was the perfect spot to kick back, relax and unwind after what had been a hectic time both domestically and with work recently. We did take an afternoon to visit Melissani Caves which is worth a look if the weather turns or if you want some time out of the sunshine. It doesn't take more than an hour in total to head there, tour and come back.
In the evenings I can highly recommend the beautiful Il Familia restaurant in Sami and the Karavomilos Tavern in Karavomilos (surprisingly!).....beautiful calamari and local dishes!
I truly hope that we will return at some stage in the near future. It was a great villa at a very reasonable price......and coming from someone who sells luxury villa and ski holidays for a living, this is definitely worth the investment!
