Villa Ormofia (3 Bedrooms)
My husband and I live in England West Yorkshire, and both work full time. My husband is a LGV gas tanker driver and Scuba Padi dive master, I work as a paramedic in the N.H.S. We spend our holidays in Kefalonia, and have the most wonderful local Greek friends who have made us feel like family. Family and friends who have been to the Island are now in love with it as much as we are.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Owner chose Pilarei
On having had so many chilled out Holidays in Agia Effimia, we decided to buy a plot of land and build two villas. The land has spectacular views and seclusion, and is in a beautiful setting, yet still near to beaches, shops, restaurants. Both villas have their own private swimming pool. Laze by the pool and take in the magnificent uninterrupted views, bbq on the warm evenings while breathing in the clear fresh mountain air. Be sure to watch out for the short toed Eagles as they soar above. On an evening the bats swooping across the lighted pool are a sight to see, a nature lover's paradise. The crystal clear sea and archaeological sites are a few beauties of this Island. The magical unspoilt Greece is still here.
What makes this Villa unique
Unique with every modern convenience having the ultimate peace and relaxation, a complete get away from it all holiday. Stunning sea and mountain views.

Lovely clean, well maintained, comfortable villa in a great location for exploring the island.
We stayed at Villa Ormofia for the first two weeks of the summer holidays and it was wonderfully relaxing. The villa and pool were spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was certainly needed with temperatures reaching 35 degrees! We spent several days exploring the island, mainly the north, and some days chilling round the pool. Fiskardo is a beautiful little fishing village but gets very busy when the tourist boats come in so get there early. Antisamos Beach was very lively and busy but great for watersports. Aghia Efimia is a very pretty and relaxed village with some lovely restaurants. We had a no power on one night so phoned Andy the following morning who sent Barry out immediately to fix the problem, we couldn’t have asked for better service. There was a lunar eclipse and a blood orange mooon during our stay which was stunning to watch over the hills. A lovely family holiday with our two teenagers, great for spending some quality downtime.
Thank you for your review Anna,it was a pleasure!
Glad to hear that you found the villa to be everything you expected.
Also that we were able to sort the electricity glitch out quickly through our management team.
Please keep us in mind for your future holidays in beautiful Kefalonia .
Best regards Andy and Pat. 😎
Fantastic villa, well geared up for families
We had a fantastic holiday at the villa. It is very private, well kept and well equipped. The views were amazing and the pool was a big hit with the children. We thought the villa had everything you need and appreciated all bedrooms being ensuite. There were lots of small touches such as loads of towels, food and drink when you arrived. You definitely need a car but an excellent place to explore from but we sent most of our time just hanging out at the villa. We certainly hope to return !!
Hi Richard,we're so pleased that you had a relaxing time and everything met with your expectations.
We would love to have you stay with us in the future!
Best regards Andy and Pat
Beautiful views across stunning Kefalonia
We had a lovely time at this villa. It was located in a good position close to Agia Efimia, which is a picturesque fishing village with plenty of restaurants and cafes. The villa was clean on arrival and had everything we needed for a very pleasant stay. Great for families looking to get away from it all! Thank you.
Nice to hear you loved the peaceful setting and found everything in Agia Effimia to your liking .
Andy & I hope that you will return in the near future.😎�
Nice clean quiet Villa
Tranquil setting and a short drive to local taverna....
Beautiful villa in quiet location
Great villa with fantastic outdoor and pool area with barbecue, parasols and enough sun loungers for all guests. The villa is perfectly located in Loukata, within easy reach of Agia Efimia and Myrtos Beach. The villa is clean and modern and very well equipped, car hire is essential because of its location, but the owners recommended a great local car hire firm who brought our cars to the airport and met us from our flight. We will certainly be back and would recommend this to anyone looking for a villa in beautiful Kefalonia.
So happy to read that you hope to return in the near future. It sounds like you all had fun and enjoy a few B B Qs.
What we did appreciate is that you also help us out sorting other guests 😊👍.
Lovely villa, lovely location
Excellent instructions meant we arrived safely despite being very dark and late! Villa just as we'd hoped, spacious clean and comfortable. Excellent outside space and pool. Very quiet and peaceful location so car essential but perfect for exploring the whole island. Agia Efimia is charming, pretty, not too busy with several good tavernas, a couple of supermarkets with everything you could need as well as a lovely butchers and bakery.
We would recommend taking a little boat from the harbour and finding your own private beach for the day as well as the horse riding up into the hills. This was great fun and a highlight of the holiday but probably wouldn't recommend for absolute beginners or those scared of heights!
Myrtos beach is only a 10 minute drive (go at sunset) and the diving centre in Agia Efimia was helpful and professional.
Thank-you Andy for helping us out on our last day - that made a real difference and we were most grateful.
We would thoroughly recommend the villa and wish we were there now!
Its great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and found all as you expected in the peaceful setting and location of the property.
Its nice that you found Makis dive centre very professional and friendly team .
Never been horse riding yet but may give it a go !
Andy & I hope you return one day to enjoy more of Kefalonia.
A few minutes drive is the world famous Myrtos beach of Cpt Correllis Mandolin fame ,where you can soak up the sun and swim in the turquoise crystal clear waters. Try swimming at sundown at Myrtos and watch the golden sun as it sinks into the horizon of the Ionian sea. There is a beach bar and refreshments on the beach. Alternatively visit the lively beach at Anti Samos, also of Cpt Correllis fame. Or Maybe you want to explore one of the many secluded bays dotted around the beautiful island.
