About Sharon Williams

My husband and I visited many Greek Islands before selecting Kefalonia as the location for our Villa, we bought the land in 2004 and had the Villa built to our specifications by an excellent Greek company called AEC. We had the Villa constructed to allow for it to be used as a 5 bedroomed villa, or easily divided into 2 apartments, a 3 bedroomed and a 2 bedroomed to allow for us to retire there (eventually!) and have a separate area to rent out (or house our visiting relatives!) It is for this reason we chose Keramies, as it is in an idyllic countryside area, but close to a typical Greek village. We visit the villa ourselves whenever we can get time off work!

Sharon Williams purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sharon Williams chose Kerameies

Villa Diana is set in countryside within easy walking distance of two villages, Spartia and Keramies. These villages have small grocery shops and tavernas selling authentic Greek dishes such as lamb kleftiko, beef stifado, pork souvlaki, moussaka, Kefalonian meat pie etc. There are also Giro ( kebabs, souvlaki, chips) takeaway/restaurants in area which will deliver to Villa or you can visit to eat.

There are several child friendly beaches within a short drive, one of our favourites is St Thomas Beach, which has a sandy beach area or if you prefer a rocky area from which you can access the sea via a ladder, or more adventurous can jump in! ( my grandsons love jumping in here)

What makes this villa unique

As we visit whenever we can, the villa is equipped and furnished more comprehensively than usual holiday accommodation. We only need to pack a few personal items as we know all we require for a hassle free holiday is there. The equipment we need for our grandsons is left at the villa for all to use, from travel cot, to toys, books and dvd's, as we know that the more occupied the little darlings are, the more rest we can get!

Due to the large size of Villa Diana, with its large covered veranda and balcony, it has become an ideal venue for celebrations such as Weddings. Villa Diana can work with one of the many Wedding Planners on the Island to organise and host your special day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi from the Edwards family, thanks for a memorable holiday in your lovely villa, its so peaceful here and so close to many beaches, we recommend Avithos Beach-perfect! We will be back!

9 of the Barton family stayed at this wonderful villa it was very clean the pool was excellent and cleaned every other day. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already at the villa. The Couple whom look after the villa on a day to basis are very helpful but leave you alone enough to enjoy the privacy that you are looking for with a villa.

My family and I will be back to this great place. We had a mix up with our flights due to the ash cloud and the owners were very accommodating with us. If you are fortunate enough to be booking this villa, do not hesitate its wonderful."

Paul John from Undy (23 Jul 2010). Fantastic Villa Outstanding facilitates Lovely location out of the way but not to far Beautiful island and weather to only dream about now we are back in rainy Wales.would recommend 100%!
