When you've been to Kefalonia you will find the special warm and relaxed hospitality enchanting and you will never want to leave!
What makes this Villa unique
We were personally involved in designing the villa to make sure that every detail is perfect. Between the views and the comfortable surroundings, it is just what we would want if we were looking for a couples' retreat.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Fantastic, we had a super week. Many thanks Katie.
Lump in the throat beautiful
On arrival, we didn't even make it into the villa, but were stopped in our tracks by the view and the location - absolutely perfect.
From the very first contact, right through to departure, the owner and maintenance team were brilliant - we had probably our best holiday ever (and we've travelled right round the world) and we will definitely be back.
The pictures (which always seem made up in these things) don't do this villa justice. This is a must-do place for quiet relaxation.
If you want lively nightlife on the doorstep, fuelled by Watneys Red Barrel - forget it! It's only a short drive to plenty of restaurants, tavernas, supermarkets and beaches, but it's fair to say you wouldn't choose to walk it on a hot day...
The greatest view from the most romantic Villa
Even before we arrived we knew this holiday was going to be something special... We wasn’t disappointed.
All the communication , help and recommendations we received from Katie even before we arrived helped make this holiday an experience we’ll never forget.
The villa ... The welcome basket ... The privacy ... The pool ... The view ... Oh the view ... from your bed ... from the outside dining table ... from your sun lounger or from the outside sofa ... morning, noon or night it’s a view that you could never tire from a view that only seeing is believing.
Everything about the Villa honestly is perfection.
Away from the villa we walked into Skala town each night ... takes around 1 hour ... all downhill and very pleasant.
Would definitely recommend hiring a car for Airport transfers , supermarket runs and trips out though.
Skala town has so many quality bars and restaurants... We took up Katie’s recommendations... fabulous Greek tavernas serving authentic Greek cuisine... we didn’t have one bad meal.... thank you .
I must admit it is with a bit of reluctance that I write this review because I want to keep this place all to myself ... but Katie and the villa deserve your custom.
Two things to finish though ...
Thank you so much and see you again in 2021 ;-) x
Idyllic, recommend unreservedly!
Words cannot truly do this property and it’s location justice. The location is idyllic and very peaceful, the main sound being the occasional tinkling of cow bells that are on the sheep and goats in the hills. We were looking for a lovely property and location and this surpassed all our expectations! Katie has thought of everything to make it a stylish/ comfortable home from home and goes over and above to make your stay perfect. The landscaping and privacy of this villa is exceptional and we felt looking at all the other villas in the area, that this was the most private and colourful with the well thought out landscaping. I thought about asking Katie to design my garden in the UK!
The location of this villa is perfect as it is very close to Scala and not a long drive to the main centre of Kephalonia and the lovely sandy beaches that are known for their turtle sightings.
I could go on but all I can really say to sum this villa and it’s location up is....words speak louder than actions and little Eros is so perfect that although we only flew back yesterday, we have booked to go again. We never tend to go back to the same place twice and this has been our ethos travelling the world for many years but there is an exception to every rule and Eros is it!
You will not regret booking to stay here for numerous reasons.
Thanks for everything Katie and giving us the opportunity to have the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.
I am lost for words over the complements you’ve paid us and we are so delighted that you really loved our Villa Eros. We thank you for your custom and complements and will roll out the welcome wagon for your next stay in our little slice of paradise!
Wonderfully quiet location with spectacular views for the ultimate in relaxation
We needed a quiet spot to recharge our batteries and Villa Eros was certainly that! From the moment we arrived to the super welcome pack we relaxed. The pool provided the perfect tranquil view over the sea, allowing us to indulge in reading, sun bathing and cooling off in the perfect temperature of the water. Located at the end of the well made road (albeit not for the faint-hearted with its sometimes steep drops), the villa was located 15 minutes from the bustle of Scala and the perfect tranquil sandy beaches of Mounda and Kaminia. We recommend an early morning dip in the perfectly still waters followed by breakfast on the beach and a delicious coffee in the taverna. Kato Katelios is a gorgeous small village with beach-side tavernas for everyone's taste. We enjoyed two wonderful boat trips with Valsamis cruises from Poros (25 minutes drive away). Christos and the property management team were quick to respond when the local electricity failed! Overall the accommodation is top class with all the facilities to self-cater or the option to indulge at many lovely tavernas, plus the beauty of local hills accessible direct from the villa and the fun of wild goats and the gentle sound of the sheep's bells. A highly recommended spot for a get away - even in the high season.
exceedingly beautiful retreat
We arrived at Villa Eros to find the most beautiful house, exceeding all expectations in terms of high quality of finishes both internal and external, well thought design throughout, fully equipped with all mod coms and breathtaking views from every corner and window of this private, secluded, corner of paradise...we loved our stay so much, we are sure to go back. The history of Old Scala is impressive and moving, the locals are friendly and welcoming, most food served is sourced locally. We loved everything about our stay at Villa Eros.
We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that the view, secluded surroundings and the extra little details that we have put into making sure Villa Eros had everything you could want or need were, in fact, appreciated. We want our guests to love the area and Kefalonia as much as we do, so we are pleased that you enjoyed yourself enough to want to come back. We can ask for no greater complement!
Warm regards, Katie
Perched in the quiet scenic hillside above the sea-side resort of Skala on the South East tip of Kefalonia, overlooking the Ionian Sea, Greek mainland and islands of Zakinthos and Ithaca, this luxury one-bedroom villa is an ideal spot for a romantic getaway.
Stay up late and enjoy the local nightlife in the village of Skala or head back to Villa Eros to enjoy a private drink on the patio by the pool.
For the adventuresome, the island boasts spectacular beach-lined coastlines, picturesque villages and evergreen forests to be explored.
With boat trips available from Skala beach or nearby port of Poros, both Zakinthos and Ithaca are within easy reach, as well.
The island has other wonderful places to visit including Mount Anos, the picturesque villages of Fiscardo and Asos, as well as the bustling cosmopolitan capital city Argostoli.
There is as much or as little to do depending upon what you fancy!
