Villa Agryllias in May

  • 5 of 5

May is a great time to visit: less people and more flowers! Bob is an excellent host (friendly and attentive but discreet) and a useful source of local information.

Fiscardo is becomimg more of a honey pot for the well-heeled these days and has lost some of its charm and value-for-money as a result but there are plenty of small beaches nearby to visit and reasonable local tavernas to eat in. The two just up the road from the villa at Maganos are both good and the Taverna Odisseas at Jerusalem is outstanding.

So it's a great base from which to explore (as long as you're mobile) as well as being a pretty and comfortable place to stay. We recommend it very highly.

The holiday was everything we were looking for.

The cottage itself was larger than expected and had everything we needed. The pool is amazing and we had sun most of the day in a very private area.

The cottage is on the edge of a small village in the north of the island. There are a couple of grocery shops and restaurants (both really nice). It is such a relaxing environment and everybody was really friendly.

Thanks to Bob for everything. We had a relaxing holiday and very happy with the help you provided.

Thanks to Anna for arranging the massage at the cottage.

Will definitely stay here again!

Sheer heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The most relaxing and wonderful holiday we have ever had. The villa was in a perfect spot where all you could hear was the sound of the goat bells ringing as they were rounded up. So many beaches (Alaties) and restaurants (Acqua)within a short distance, and Fiscardo a 10 minute drive away. Bob is a wonderful host, always there when needed but not intrusive.

August 28th – 11th September 2014

This has been our first time staying on Kefalonia and we have enjoyed every minute. Villa Agrilias is a wonderful place to stay and we have loved spending time here relaxing by the pool and having a glass of wine in the evening in the beautiful garden.

The highlights of our trip;

1. Watching the sunset from the cliff (Bob will give you directions)

2. Lunch at Platanos in Assos. It’s the restaurant on the road set back from the sea with red and white checked tablecloths. Its family run and they use their own farm to supply the meat. Absolutely fantastic and very reasonably priced.

3. A boat trip with Jamie Stirling, Ionian Discoveries. We had such a great first trip that we went again in our second week. It’s a small boat which travels to different coves depending on the weather. Jamie will teach you to snorkel if you wish, or you can just swim or stay on board to relax. He is a marine biologist and spends time telling you all about the local marine life. (book early the trip is popular). Website is http://www.ioniandiscoveries.com/Home.html

4. Cocktail’s at Theodora’s on the harbour in Fiskardo. The staff are lovely, as are the cocktails.

5. Discovering Makis the taxi driver. We had a slight problem with our hire car that meant we didn’t have one! However, Makis stepped into the breach wonderfully. He is very reliable and reasonably priced. If you call him and say you are staying at Bob’s villa in Agrilias he knows where you are, and he will pick you up from the road at the end of the path through the blue gate. We’ve left his card on the fridge, but just in case it’s not there his number is +30 6945 581 792.

6. The beautiful garden at the villa and the butterflies.

Finally we would like to say a very big thank you to Bob, it has been an honour to meet you. The attention to detail and love that you have put into the villa has made our stay so special. We very much enjoyed your gifts of food and fruit, and our chats over a glass of wine, and I must mention your sprints to remove the sun-lounger cushions when the sudden rain showers occurred. We would also like to say a special thank you for organising taxis for us when Makis was on an airport run, and for driving us to Fiskardo when none were available, it really was above and beyond all expectation.

We hope you enjoy your time with your family in America over the winter.

Phil and Sarah (Somerset, UK)

We stayed for 2 glorious weeks and totally recommend it. Bob is a true gentleman and will give you support without being intrusive. The area is stunning and nestled in a tiny village away from it all - but close enough drive to explore interesting sites and beaches. The island is breathtaking. Although small this villa is everything 2 people would need.
