Guest Book: We very much value and appreciate all the comments that we have received from our guests after holidaying in our villa.Here are a small sample:
'The view of the mountains and the sea in front of the villa was a joy to wake up to every morning.We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at your villa. All the facilities inside and outside the villa were excellent! We made good use of the table tennis table! (Frances & family)
'Your villa was delightful, and catered for all our needs.We toured the island, hired speedboats from Lourdas beach, and were lucky enough to see a turtle swimming in the sea! A fab holiday that I would highly recommend'(Judith and family)

Had a fantasic week, very hot, Villa beautifil,lovely views, perfect location.
Glad we had a car to explore the island.
We spent one week in Aug. 2011 at Villa Magdalani and I must say that we had already visited different villas around Europe but never stayed in a more beautiful and lovely accomodation. The Villa is really awesome. The equipment is on a very high standard and the pool is absolutely fantastic. Thanks to Jo and Darren for providing us with everything, especially for the nice welcome pack. We love to come back, because we never had a more enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
All in all: Great Villa, lovely beaches, perfect days in Kefalonia.
Klaus, Claudia, Laura and Elise.
PS: We rented a car from "Greekstones" and this was a very godd decision.
This was our first villa experience & we were not dissapointed in any way. From the day we booked to the day we arrived we found the whole experience pleasurable & stress free. The owners Jo & Darren will provide you with all the information you need to make your stay so very relaxing.
The villa feels very homely & has beautiful views across lourdes bay that will surely take your breath away.
The welcome pack provides all the essentials to get you started so you don't need to rush off to the supermaket straight away.
The villa facilities are superb as there is everything you need to self cater. From a washing machine to a coffee maker you have the choice to stay in or eat out it's up to you! The pool is perfectly sized & was very clean. Plenty of sunbeds around and even a barbeque if you fancy some outdoor dining!
A car would really be essential as the area is very hilly and the small gravel drive up to the villa can be quite precarious to walk on.
There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and if you don't mind a little walk i'd reccomend trying the Olive Lounge for authentic Greek food with excellent service.
The local beach is very nice and there are plenty of little tavernas to grab yourself some lunch. A short walk back up the hill you'll find Lorraines Magic Hill Restaurant which is great for lunch or an evening meal. One evening we walked down for dinner and afterwards Lorraine herself offered to drive us back up to the Villa to save our legs from the hilly walk. Amazing & friendly people!
Overall I'd recommend this villa for families or a group of friends.
We'll definitely be coming back to Villa Magdalani.
We spent our honeymoon in Villa Magdalani and can't recommend it enough. The villa was beautifully decorated and furnished, the rooms and layout were perfect and the pool and garden were fabulous.
Lourdata is a lovely villa with several supermarkets and plenty of gorgeous restaurants serving delicious food. Its an ideal location for exploring the island, although we didn't venture further north than Sami due to the mountainous roads. Its only a 20-30 minute drive from the airport too. It lies just off the main road from Argostoli to Skala - perfectly situated.
The owners are extremely helpful and were easily contactable. My one piece of advice however is to print out a detailed Google map of the villa location before you travel. The owners will send a sketch of the village however we were trying to find the correct road for about 20 minutes in the dark - needless to say there's not much in the way of street lighting!
All in all, a beautiful villa in a perfect location - we would love to return in the future.
We spent two wonderful weeks in this gorgeous villa. The website description is very accurate and but the lovely thing is when you arrive your expectations are exceeded.
The villa is very well equipped, maintained, cleaned to a high standard with a beautiful garden. Everything has been carefully thought of that guests might require during their stay, for example - a detailed guide compiled by former guests, places to visits, beaches and restaurants.
Lourdas itself is charming with a number of good quality restaurants and most importantly it remains unspoilt.
So good we have already booked for 2011.
The villa was lovely, a really relaxing space, it was very clean and the people who look after the villa are lovely. The villa has a lovely outside area and a beautiful pool. The owners of the villa were very organised and easy to correspond with. There was a very nice welcome pack. The villa was further away from the beach and restaurants than we had thought which meant we used a car all the time. Especially as the roads are so steep and the temperatures so lovely and hot! The villa was well located for visiting the south of the island.
Villa Magdalani is located within the charming greek village of Lourdas. Lourdas is located at the bottom of Mount Ainos, and enjoys an exceptional micro-climate. The natural vegetation consists of cypress trees, olive and pine trees, but you can also see exotic palm and banana trees. Lourdas bay is on the south coast of Kefalonia and is one of the largest bays of the island and is fringed by over 2 miles of sand and pebble beach. The beach is within 500m walking distance down a steep incline through the village past the famous plane tree and natural spring, but the walk up is only for the fittest!. In the village itself there are several restaurants, tavernas and small shops. Argostoli, the capital town 10km away, is a bustling cosmopolitan town with a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Many an evening has been spent in one of the excellent restaurants surrounding the large square watching the exciting entertainment. Here you will find a range of boutiques and designer shops.
