Villa in Katelios, Kefalonia, Greek Islands - Nestled On A Hillside With Breathtaking Ionian Sea And Mountain Views
About Liz Rogers
My name is Liz. I live in Cornwall and have always loved property, renovation and sea! I currently advertise 2 of my properties through Owners Direct, 1 is a beautiful villa on the island of Kefalonia in Greece property ref: GR1548 and the second one is a character detached character barn conversion in the rolling Cornish countryside just 3 miles from the sea. I have overseen/built and refurbished both properties with help from professionals along the way, combined with the help of my 2 children who are both actively involved with everything I do. My aim is to provide holidays that home from home, that are welcoming, friendly and with luxury finishing touches that sets them apart from others. Customer service is very important to me, thank you for reading my profile.
Liz Rogers purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Liz Rogers chose Elios Proni
Katelios is a pretty fishing village with lovely restaurants and tavernas. Within 35 mins from the airport you can be sat overlooking the Ionian sea with the sound of birdsong and crickets all around. The location is peaceful, and yet within 10 minutes walk you can be at the sea front enjoying a glass of robola wine with olives and tzadziki. Crowds do not exist on Kefalonia, beaches are never crowded, and crime rate is very low. Night life is relaxed and low key. The villa is suitable for large families, or maybe just a group of friends wishing to `get away` from it all.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa has a very relaxed feel about it. It is large, light and airy, the views from both inside and out are breathtaking. If you are holidaying with children there is a separate family room that they can play safely whilst not spoiling the relaxed feel or cluttering up the living areas where adults can still enjoy a TV and Ipod stations are little extras that are there should guests require them. Although the above are not essential on a relaxing holiday, these facilities are there to enhance your stay. I understand as a self employed mum myself that if children are happy then so are we.

Top quality villa in superb location.
Very well appointed villa in a lovely place. Good welcome pack and Liz came and visited to make sure we were settled in. We were really happy here. To be picky we found the adults beds far too low but comfortable. We also would have liked an outside shower but that is a really minor point considering the great overall standard if the Villa.
Nearby mini markets were adequate but a visit to Skala required for better choice or the big ones near Argostoli.
Katelios restaurants were all pretty good but apart from Captain Jerry and Cozy (Lozy) were all quite similar menus. Also all quite good value for money.
We liked Mounda beach and the Anemoe Taverna just behind. Found Koroni a bit disappointing as no chairs or umbrellas which are essential for a days stay and being visitors could not bring any with us.
All in all a great villa in a lovely location and would definitely come back.
wonderful villa set in a great location.
we spent a week there and had the most amazing time. The villa and the pool were like a dream. We didn't get cars and never even left the village for a week. Get it booked you'll not be disappointed. Steve Price
Views to die for, fully equipped villa, spotless and very comfortable, beautiful pool and very helpful staff. Will be returning next year.
Arrived to a stunning villa after navigating from the airport. Liz the owner had supplied really great directions and the roads were really easy to navigate. The villa is stunningly beautiful, the views are just amazing and you are perched on the side of the hill overlooking the village of katelios. The villa has everything that you would need , a proper home from home. Liz has catered for everything. The beds are the comfiest I have ever slept on. There is a good range of tavernas in the village and it is a good 8 minute walk down, however well worth it. The walk back up is steep, the last 100 yards, but ideal to walk over the food you will have eaten. Found a beautiful beach called agia Thomas which was about a 20 min drive back towards the airport. A beautiful beach, not big, but has a taverna where you wil find the oldest cook/bartender/waitress on the island !!. This is a villa I would definitely recommend to anyone if you are looking for a secluded but not isolated retreat with stunning views and everything you would need within the villa.
Our family of 6 had a wonderful time in katelios. The villa was amazing. Beaches fabulous and weather stunning. We will definitely return!
Warm welcome, ideal location, great pool
Lovely villa with a stylish interior and every effort to provide everything you need. Pool ideal for the family and short walk to good choice of restaurants and shallow beach great for kids. Lovely warm welcome from Liz and Will who gave us some great eating out / trip ideas. We had a great week
