A most relaxing and comfortable villa with everything you need and more.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa. It is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We liked the varied spaces to eat and relax both in and outside the villa. The swimming pool is excellent, large enough for a good swim and to play ball games. We came with our 3 grown up children and the space worked really well for us. The welcoming hamper was much appreciated. We loved the location, quiet and secluded but not far from the tavernas in Agia Effimia. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you Phivos.

Villa Phivos is a beautiful villa in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. There are lots of thoughtful touches and we loved being there. The pool and pool area is lovely with amazing views. The barbecue area is very well kitted out and provides a comfortable shady area to sit. The gardens were beautiful too. The villa feels very remote but you are only 5 mins drive from the lovely little port of Ag Efimia where there are lots of places to eat (all good). It is also in an ideal location for exploring the north of the island which we thought was the prettiest. We hope to return as we loved this place and the people so much.

Great place to get away to

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well appointed, well designed and very comfortable. It has great indoor and outdoor areas, a good kitchen and covered BBQ area, a variety of different locations to relax in so that if you’re in a group you can retreat for some time alone, It is away from other people but just a few minutes drive from a few villages with bakery, butcher, shops, cafes restaurants, local beauty spots and gorgeous sea swimming, in case you didn’t feel like using the great pool at the Villa. There was a great welcome hamper to ease us into our stay and a welcome visit to make sure we were properly settled and oriented. Pre-arrival communications and help were excellent. Lovely to spend time here, one week was too short!

This stunning villa is the nicest I have ever stayed in. The owners and all the staff are fantastic. They have thought of everything. I cannot fault it in any way. Perfect for 3 couples or a large family.

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to Phivos Villa and it's always like coming home. The villa is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It's in a lovely quiet location amidst the olive trees and convenient for visiting all the gorgeous beauty spots, although you do need transport here. We highly recommend this property.

Perfect, didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented villa of exceptional quality of furnishings for an upmarket yet cosy feel. The views every morning were stunning, village sweet and has everything you need whether you want to eat out or cook at the villa. Amanda visiting the first full day was nice and it was good to have some extra information if we wanted to explore which was our intention but with only a weeks holiday we ended up chilling to the max and having to force ourselves to venture out. The outside kitchen and dining/seating area was a big pull for us when we viewed all villas we liked, this one was great! We would recommend a jeep like car to manage the long rocky track as every time we took our hire car out we winced when we heard a noise in case of sudden damage from rocks to the underside! We did get woken at 7am Sunday morning by a bulldozer close and clearly another villa is going to be built soon so I would consider that build noise if we wanted to book the villa again in 2018. Having all towels and good bed linen provided and changed during our stay was excellent, the robes came in handy after we had jumped into the pool a couple of times- October isn't the best season for unheated pool dipping unless you are very young and don't feel the cold but it was fun nonetheless! Superb laundry area in the cellar which was a reminder that you don't need to pack so much when facilities like this are at your fingertips. A wonderful villa and situated in a fabulous position, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of the villas to others. Kefalonia is beautiful and I know we will be back to the island for sure - especially as we didn't visit the caves or get to hire a local boat etc. Do pack good quality mosquito repellent and if you can citronella tea lights as you may not see the blighters but you feel their bites later on! We did buy and leave a fly swat too for persistent wasps but it's just as we have experienced in other Mediterranean countries. Go, enjoy, you won't be disappointed!
