About DIMITRIS ROUCHOTAS

I am a civil engineer,i work for the municipality of kefalonia.I am married with Niki which is a teacher.

We both grew up and went school in Argostoli,we have 3 children Gerasimos 10 years old,Zoi 6 years old,and Chrisanthi 3 years old.

DIMITRIS ROUCHOTAS purchased this villa in 2011

Why DIMITRIS ROUCHOTAS chose Katapodata

My grandmother Chrisanthi and my Mother were born in the village of Grizata.We have a small house in the village,I use when i was young to spent many summers in this place,so i always wanted to built a new house here.

What makes this villa unique

What i love in this villa is the spectacular view into the valley from the veranda, also that villa is brandnew,has all the comforts every body needs,plus the gorgeous swimming private pool.The place and the area is still unspoiled, it is surrounded from so much green,there is so much quiet,and of course the sound of the water of the small stream that flows only 200 m away(during winter and early spring time)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spend a beautiful holiday here in Kefalonia.The villa is wonderfull.Dimitris and his wife are very kind and helpful.Kefalonia is great.Myrtos and Antisamos are wonderfull and the turquoise sea is amazing.

The greatest thing of all are the sheeps,they 've been here when we got up in the morning and they were here in the evening when we came back.

Thanks Dimitris.We hope to see you as soon as possible.

Lovely villa in beautiful Kefalonia

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Chrisanthi. Dimitris gave us a warm welcome when we arrived, and the location was great - a quiet spot but close to Sami for shops/restaurants/bars. Dimitris gave us excellent recommendations for places to eat all over the island and also helpful suggestions of places of interest and beautiful beaches. The villa itself was very well equipped, with many thoughtful touches, and we felt at home there. It was also very clean and was cleaned every 3 days during our stay, with bed linen and towels also changed. The outside areas were great, plenty of space and everything we needed. It was very hot during our stay but there was always a shady spot or even go inside to cool off with the air-con! The pool was lovely also - perfect for our 2 teenagers!! It was very pretty with the pool lights in the evening. All in all, an excellent villa - we would definitely stay there again!

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We where a family of four (kids 5 and 7 yo) who stayed here for 2 nights. The house is located very secluded together with a similar house next to it. It has a wonderful view, a nice pool and a terrace with a nice big barbecue. It takes about 10 minutes to drive down to the peaceful village of Sami. It has everything you need but is much calmer than your normal touristy places in Greece. I'd recommend renting a car if you book this house as it makes things a whole lot easier.

The host, Dimitris, was very helpful with finding the house and suggesting things to do when we where there. I would highly recommend the house to anyone looking for a nice and quiet vacation in the Ionian Islands.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were met by Dimitris who was the perfect host, a nice bottle of wine and a lemon and pistachio cake were a lovely touch. The villa was exactly what we were hoping for. Spotlessly clean, great kitchen with everything you need, comfortable living room with a large tv. Wi fi was fast and it covered the whole of the patio and pool area, the pool was great as was the barbecue. The beds were very comfortable and the linen was changed every three days. The fly screens were great and there's air conditioning in every room although we didn't need it in late September. It's a beautiful peaceful area with mountains on either side, it's a five minute drive to Sami and 12 minutes to Agia efimia.

Wether you're a couple or a family villa Chrisanthi has everything you need. We would highly recommend this villa and look forward to returning sometime in the future.

Once again, thanks Dimitris.

One of the best advantages of our villa is that it is located in a secluded location with wonderfully peaceful and natural surroundings at the edge of the Village of Grizata. There is easy access(5 mins drive to Sami port ) where you can find lots of great taverns and restaurants which are never overcrowded,supermarkets,bakeries, meat markets,groceries, cafe next to the sea and many more. We do everything to ensure that all guests are as happy and comfortable as they can be. We will be looking forward to host you again in future!!!
