This beautiful villa, which sleeps 6 people, is set in a superb secluded location in Zola. The views over the bay, towards Assos, are fabulous. The very long sandy beach is only a few minutes walk away. There are a couple of local tavernas in this quiet hamlet, the nearest being next to the beach. The open-plan living area comprises a lounge/diner leading to a fully equipped kitchen (including microwave and dishwasher). The villa has 3 large bedrooms (2 double and 1 twin), all pleasantly furnished with wardrobes. All bedrooms have their own en suite with shower. There is Sat/Dvd and Mp3 player which works in all rooms and music can be listened to outside as well. The lounge opens onto a large patio with magnificent views over the bay to Assos and Lefkada beyond. The barbecue is on this terrace which also has a dining table and 6 chairs for those outdoor feasts! The villa has its own private swimming pool with sun patio and 6 sunbeds.

About Paul Holt / John Kenworthy
We started building in Kefalonia in 2005 where myself and my wife built our own villa in a small village called Zola. Straight after completion myself and John decided to buy more land and build some rental properties after seeing the potential Zola has to offer. Our aim is to build five villas for rental and offer luxury Villas and a service to match. You can contact either of us any time and we will be only to glad to answer your questions and try and make your Greek Holiday the escape your looking for.
Paul Holt / John Kenworthy purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Paul Holt / John Kenworthy chose Zola
Zola is a small quiet sleepy fishing village in a central location of Kefalonia. There are four / five restaurants and two local beaches, in the small harbour you can hire a small motor boat which allows you to explore the private beaches only accessible by boat. Zola is 40 minutes away from the airport and 20 minutes away from Lixouri. Also accessible are Agi Efima (30minutes) Assos (25 minutes) Fiscardo (40 minutes). This is a very quiet village and brings meaning to the saying you can hear a pin drop.

Gotta love Kefalonia
Property was clean and spacious with a beautiful pool. Zola is very quiet, so you need a car to get anywhere, but that’s fine by us. Villa is extremely difficult to find in the dark and really needs a sign on the corner of the track. We couldn’t quite follow the last bit of the instructions and were grateful for local passers by who helped.
Very grateful for delivery of a coffee maker! Kitchen lacked basic equipment, but was ok.
We had a wonderful week, thank you.
Many Thanks for your comments and we always look at feedback so we can improve for the coming season, Hope we can accommodate again.
We had a super stay. The villa is in a fantastic setting and the pool and villa are great. We had problems with the air conditioning - they managed to fix it on day 4 in one room but unfortunately our bedroom had faulty aircon throughout because they couldn't get the parts in time. Took the edge off the holiday because I slept so badly. In every other way the property was really good.
Nice villa in absolut beautiful location.
The location is great and absolutely quiet. The villa itself was very clean and spacious with big terrace. Restaurant and stunning bech with less people nearby. Also only 20 minutes to myrtos beach. Only the kitchen equipment is a little bit sparse. A higher quality cutlery, uniform wine glasses andpot coaster wopuld be great. But this is only a small minus point. All in all we can highly recommmend Zola and the villa for a quiet saty in beautiful nature.
Thank you for your feedback so glad you enjoyed Zola as we do, very peaceful I agree :)
I take on board your comments about the kitchen equipment and ensure this is topped up soon your feedback is very important to us and helps us greatly to know what customers need, thanks again and hope to see you in the future.
Kind regards & take care
We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday in this beautiful place. Nice, clean villa, lovely views.
V friendly local bar/restaurant.
Beautiful scenery and beaches.
Thank you so much for your lovely review it certainly gives you the feeling of Greek life and the locals are so friendly they appreciate your visit,,yes the views are some of the best on the island. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we see you again in the future. Thanks again
Beautiful Villa with the most stunning views. Modern, clean, spacious & private. Did I mention the view? Pictures really don't do it justice, 4 ladies looking for relaxation & we found it. Will definately be booking again for next year! The taverna in the centre of Zola serves good food & has a wonderful view of local life and the scenery. Vouti Beach is definately worth the walk. Only advice is make sure you read the directions to the villa as the small track in is easily missed, perhaps a signpost would be useful, as other villas have them. Stairs up to the Villa are steep so may not be suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, Zola is certainly a place where you experience the local life. Thank you for such lovely feedback this is much appreciated. The views are certainly some of the best on the Island.
The stairs to the Villa are certainly challenging we agree, but it is worth the view after the climb :) We do hope to see you next year it would be nice to have you again. We have taken n board your comment on the sign thank you.
The 2 beaches surrounding the villas are a pleasant walk, but are quite hilly. From Agi Kiraki beach you can hire a motor boat where you can explore other beaches and the picturesque coastline.
Zola is situated in the North of Kefalonia and is approximately 15-20 mins drive from Lixouri and 30 mins into Argostoli.
Zola is a beautiful and typical Greek village, if you like peaceful surroundings then this is place for you. The villa is situated on the hillside, with spectacular views of the mountain and Agi Kiraki beach. With Zola being a traditional village there are no local bars or shops to hand, so a drive is essential for your everyday needs, this does add to the charm of the Villas location.
