About Susan

Susan - British owner purchased property in 2017. We first visited Kefalonia over 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with the island, its wonderful relaxed way of life and spectacular coast. And so it was that in 2017 we were lucky enough to buy our very own island villa. We knew as soon as we saw Villa Hara and fell in love with the fabulous sea and mountain views that we would be able to make this a truly wonderful holiday home that we could share with both family and friends.

We really hope that you will want to rent our villa and that you will feel the same love for Kefalonia as we do.

Susan purchased this villa in 2017

Why Susan chose Karavados

We have holidayed on Kefalonia regularly since 2006 and this area has always been our favourite. The location is Beautiful with sea and mountain views and only a 5 minute walk to the small but sandy beach of St Thomas Bay which has both a restaurant and cafe. There are others restaurants close by including the family run Enasteron (5 min drive), the village of Karavados with two mini supermarkets and also within easy drive of Argostoli with its shops, restaurants, cafes, leisure facilities and of course the Turtles.

What makes this villa unique

Location, serenity, views, gardens, pool.

A wonderful vacation home at a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Hara for two weeks. It's the perfect place for a wonderful family vacation. The location is great as it is in the middle of the wonderful valley of Livathou and not far from the main town Argostoli and the cosy little villages on the way there. If you have a car, in a short time you can reach some of the best beaches Avithos, Ai Helis, Skala, Eglina and Lourdas. But the best thing about the location is that in 10 minutes walk one can reach the picturesque bay of St. Tomas beach.

Villa Hara is just perfect. Wonderfully furnished home with all necessary facilities for a big family and designed with a lot of taste. The swimming pool, the yard and the garden are very well maintained and the panorama from the terrace to the sea and the mountain is breathtaking.

We were there with our little baby and beside the standard accessories like baby cot, high chair, pram, there was also a little basket with baby items, which we found very touching.

Thank you Susan and Duncan, we will definitely come back! Villa Hara is on the way to become our favourite place on our already favorite island Kefalonia.

Gorgeous Villa in a Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely villa in June 2018. It has been furnished to a very high standard. Really lovely rooms with lovely decoration. Kitchen superb.

Everything we might need had been carefully thought through. The lovely stylish kitchen had plenty of equipment, crockery and utensils. It lacked for nothing. The lounge area lovely although due to the fantastic seating area by the barbecue we hardly used it. All air conditioned throughout. Lovely bedrooms, plenty of storage space. Lovely picture on walls. Nice little touches everywhere. Outside areas were stunning. Fantastic swimming pool, lovely seating areas, great barbecue area. But most of all fantastic views of the sea. The garden has been carefully thought out with lovely planting and nice grass areas. We loved watching the birds swooping around the property each morning and evening. (House Martins, we think ) The little beach nearby was lovely with two places to eat and/or get drinks etc. It is 10 to 15 walk downhill so uphill on way back. But literally 5 mins by car. The villa is in a small hamlet and secluded but easy to get to local shops by car. We loved the sounds of the goats/sheep bells sometimes going past the villa. It is about 30 to 40 mins from airport. If you want a very stylish villa in a lovely setting with a lovely view, this is the villa for you. It would be good for familieswith children, friends staying together...due to the three bathrooms...or just a couple wanting a relaxing time together. We tried the restaurant by the castle. Really lovelyto sit out and see across the villages below and out to sea. Thank you very much Susan and Duncan for providing a lovely home from home. We will be back.
