Richard Guttfield purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Richard Guttfield chose Pesada
Villa Tychia is in a great location, it's very peaceful, has beautiful views of the countryside, the sea and the mountains behind. Tychia is a beautiful Villa only a short drive from the airport. It really is a home from home and beautifully appointed, I think you will agree that Tychia is the perfect place to relax and take in the charms of the island.
What makes this Villa unique
There are some beautiful walks from the Villa through meadows and down to the port which makes it a great location for anyone who loves scenic locations. I have stayed at many Villas in Kefalonia and Tychia really stood out as the ideal Villa and perfect location for seeing the island.

Excellent Villa - very modern and good TV & Audio Tech
This Villa is nice and modern with a good feel good factor. Swimming Pool and Sun Loungers were excellent. The only minor negative point I would make - no outside shade in the afternoon - needs an awning on the back of the property. Otherwise - highly recommended.
SUPER HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE
I hired this villa for 6 adult family members. It is very well equipped, beautiful pool and garden, lovely views from the upstairs balcony. Pesseda is very quiet, but charming, no shops and only one tiny taverna near by. Essential to have a car, but then I think most villas on Kefalonia require this. The wi-fi is excellent in the property and I particularly enjoyed using "Alexa" by Amazon to select our music. Also used Amazon Prime to view Movies. The owners manual is very comprehensive and we used regularly to find great tavernas, all those recommended were excellent. One small point, in the folder states "OSKARS" restaurant has Greek Dancing, this is not the case, we visited and they informed us that this has not happened for approximately 8 years. LOVELY HOLIDAY, WOULD RECOMMEND.
Beautiful villa, well appointed, relaxing stay
We had a lovely stay at villa Tychia. It was clean and well equipped and the property managers were very accommodating and helpful. The pool area was very nice, although a couple of parasols would have been very welcome. It was quiet and relaxing but you definitely need a hire car to be able to get out and see the island and access the supermarkets on the outskirts of Argostoli.
So pleased that you had an enjoyable stay at Villa Tychia. You are right to say that a car is really necessary if you want to see the island properly. I will look into some kind of parasols, the normal ones get damaged easily from the occassional windy evening. i will look into that and thank you for taking the time to make a review, I hope to see you back at Villa Tychia again soon. Best Wishes, Richard.
Fabulous Family Fun in Homely Villa
Just returned from a weeks holiday at Villa Tychia with my husband mum sister and brother in law and what an amazing time we had.
The villa was very easy to find using the directions provided and took about 15/20 minutes from the airport.
The villa is exactly as in the photos, spotlessly clean and tidy and was beautifully furnished throughout with very comfy beds and luxury pillows so we all enjoyed a great nights sleep.
There was an extensive range of pans, crockery, utensils and facilities in the kitchen and outside a fantastic huge BBQ which we enjoyed using during our stay.
We had a fabulous time swimming and relaxing by the pool and the villa was very secluded and in a very quiet area of Pessada.
We took a short walk out from the villa down the main road towards the port, turned down about the 3rd road on the right and at the bottom of the road we walked down about 80 steps and found a beautiful secluded bay where there was only a handful of people and crystal clear waters for swimming and snorkelling.
We spent our week out visiting different places on the island and chilling at the villa.
I would definitely recommend Villa Tychia for anyone looking for a peaceful holiday close to the airport and easy access to all places on the island.
My husband and I have stayed in many villas throughout the Greek islands and I can honestly say that this is by far the best villa ever due to extensive facilities including wi-fi and sky tv, homely furnishings and we were all very sad to leave.
If you are thinking of visiting Kefalonia then Villa Tychia is definitely the villa to choose so do not hesitate and book.
We will most certainly return.
Absolutely stunning villa
Villa Tychia is absolutely stunning, we stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed every second. The villa really is home from home, the owners have thought of everything , the pool and gardens are fantastic, my children spent hours in the pool and playing round the garden. The villa was exceptional clean and well maintained. The location is so idyllic with beautiful views of the mountains infront and the sea from the patio and balcony. Lynn and Andy, the owners were so helpful from the start, nothing was to much bother for them, they sent us lots of information about the Island and the villa before we arrived. This villa really was perfect and we have had an amazing time, thank you to the owners for sharing their luxurious villa with us. We will be back
I have never written a review following a holiday before be it at a hotel or villa but felt having spent such a wonderful week at Villa Tychia it might help others make a decision to stay here.
We drove to the villa from the airport having been given great directions to follow by Lynn and arrived late afternoon, at first I was worried the villa seemed a little remote but within minutes felt very at home. It is so peaceful with beautiful views across the valley and out to sea.
The villa is very well equipped and comfortable with a fantastic pool and lovely gardens and a swing that our 4 year old loved.
The island is lovely, with great restaurants, beeches and very friendly people.
It is the first time we have been away and really did not want to come home, we had a fantastic relaxing week and would not hesitate to return to the island and Villa Tychia.
Many thanks Lynn and Andy
Pessada is a traditional, unspoiled village in Kefalonia which sits on the coastline of South West Kefalonia. Despite being only 15 minutes drive from the airport, it is incredibly quiet and peaceful. Pessada is surrounded by natural beauty, with spectacular views of Lourdas bay to the South, the island of Zakynthos on the distant horizon, and a backdrop which is dominated by the highest peak in the Ionian, Mount Ainos. This dramatic scenery, coupled with tranquility of Kefalonian village life, make it the perfect location for a luxury villa. The small secluded bays of Pessada are within 10-15 minutes walk from the Villa. Facilities within the village are limited, although there is a very small shop and two local tavernas. Car hire is highly recommended to explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia and to visit the local supermarkets and many excellent tavernas, all within a few minutes drive of the villa. The main town of Argostoli is also just a short distance away.
