There are many reasons that made Kefalonia a popular destination:
Holiday fabulous as always, villa was perfect!
Please hold the same 2 weeks for next year.
We have just had a really wonderful holiday at Villa Argante. It was the first time we'd ever had a villa and it was just perfect for us ( family of 6 ). The house is really spacious and has everything you need and more. The pool and surrounding views are beautiful. The location is perfect as you are near the airport and Argostoli also the village has a bakery, small shop and restaurants. The local 'pâtisserie ' sells delicious cakes and a favourite restaurant of ours was ' Ampelaki ' in Argostoli. We definitely hope to book again!
The villa is in an ideal location on the island as the village of Lakithra has everything you may need if you want to eat locally, including a choice of 4 restaurants, a bar, bakery, confectioners and mini mart. It is located only 10 mins from the airport yet no noise or disruption due to the angle of the runway. Argostoli is only 10 mins drive and there are stunning beaches within easy reach.
The quiet track that leads to the villa offers total privacy and seclusion and the garden is. well established and maintained. Stunning views from the upper balcony of sunrise and sunset across Argostoli.
The layout of the villa is conducive to family living and most of our time was naturally spent outside under the large shady patio area, the cute pergola and pool side.
The kitchen is very well equipped and the decor and furnishings stylish and well maintained. The 3 bathrooms with great showers were ideal when everyone wants to get ready at the same time!
Isobel who cleaned the villa twice a week was a fountain of knowledge and it's always reassuring to have a contact should an emergency occur. The villa is spotlessly clean and the extra touches like the welcome pack, and basics provided is very much appreciated.
The ultimate compliment is a rebooking as our 2 weeks holiday are precious to a busy working family and I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be next summer!
Since thanks from the Hodson's.
The villa was delightful, very clean and well equipped. The pool is larger than ones we've had at other villas and it was very well maintained too, as was the very pretty garden surrounding it. The villa is not overlooked and the views from the balcony across to Argostoli harbour are wonderful. David & Elaine's recommendation to hire a car from Akis at Autochoice Car Rental was very useful as Akis met us at the airport and then we were able to follow him for the short drive to the villa. Even though you can get to the villa very quickly from the airport there is no aircraft noise at all. There's a mini-market, a bakery, a wonderful cake shop, a bar and several restaurants all within walking distance. We tried all the restaurants in Lakithra village and didn't have a bad meal in any of them. There's also a Lidl and a Carrefour supermarket a short drive away. Kefalonia is a beautiful island and there's plenty to do. We saw turtles in the harbour at Argostoli thanks to the tip from Isobel (lady who keeps the villa so lovely and clean) and we visited St. George's castle, which has a very nice restaurant just by the gate. There are nice sandy beaches nearby too, if you can drag yourself away from the pool! With two teenagers, having the wifi and Sky was a real plus point. The only problem (for them) was that they used up the 3G daily wifi allowance on most days. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa to our family and friends, and in fact have already done so!
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Argante. The villa was very clean and extremely well equipped . Isobel was charming and most helpful and we very much appreciated the welcome pack.
The pool and surrounding areas were beautifully kept and we enjoyed the pool very much.
It was great to have so many good little restaurants locally and loved the fresh bread from the bakery in the morning .
All in all the villa certainly lived up to and in fact exceeded our expectations - hope very much to return and would certainly recommend it.
The Villa is located in a very quiet picturesque village just 10 minutes from the airport
The village has all the local amenities which include a supermarket a local bakery, cake shop and a couple of restaurants
when we arrived, the villa was very clean and tidy and as we were on our honeymoon we had Champagne in our welcome pack given to us by the owners.
The villa has all the comforts to help make your stay more enjoyable, like Air conditioning, Satellite TV and Free Wifi.
The pool was cleaned every other day and was always clean inside and out.
The information pack given by the owners telling us about the villa and local news we found was very helpful and informative.
This is the best villa we have ever stayed in and it certainly wont be our last visit. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants a quiet holiday in a secluded villa with its own pool surrounded by stunning views of all the mountains.
For me this villa ticks all the boxes and then some.
We had an excellent holiday in a very nice villa. It was spacious, clean and well maintained. The garden and pool were lovely. This was our second trip to the island and we will certainly return and that includes the villa. Thank you
