Excellent villa!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a well-equipped, spacious villa with excellent garden and swimming pool, and breath-taking views across the Ionian sea, this is the one for you! Set in a quiet village but with easy access to a wide range of excellent tavernas. A short walk away, in the village centre of Metaxata, you will find a small shop for daily essentials but supermarkets are only a short drive away - a car is essential to make the most of your holiday. The villa is also a great base for travelling around the island, visiting the many beaches and fishing villages. Angela, the Manager, and her team were extremely helpful. We would certainly recommend Kefalonia and a stay in Villa Kallianna.

Lovely villa, beautiful views, peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kefalonia many times over the past 8 years and love the island. We had a fortnight in Villa Kallianna during the last week of July and first week of August 2016, and loved the villa and its location.

The villa is set out over 3 floors as described, with two double bedrooms (each with a bathroom) upstairs, the main living accommodation on the ground floor - large open plan living/dining room and kitchen, and a basement with a bedroom with 2 single beds and another large bedroom with a (comfortable) double sofa bed and the option of another single bed. There is also a bathroom in the basement. One of the bathrooms on the top floor has a bath (rare in holiday accommodation) which was a real bonus for our bath-loving daughter. The bedroom in the basement with the two single beds has a TV and DVD player, so that was heaven for our two boys who were sharing the room.

There is everything you need to make you feel at home - the kitchen was probably better stocked than my kitchen, with a lovely fancy coffee maker. The ground floor doors open onto the patio so you can eat all meals at the big outside table.

The villa sleeps 9, and we had 7 people (6 adults) very comfortably - having 3 floors means people can spread out a bit which is great. One thing we really noticed was how cool the villa stayed - we only put the air-conditioning on twice for a couple of hours, and the rest of the time, the house is designed so that you can leave doors and windows open (with mozzie nets built in) and feel perfectly cool - that's amazing for July/August!

The location of the villa is perfect. Metaxata is an easy 15 - 20 min drive from the airport and is really picturesque and peaceful, with beautiful views across to Zakinthos. You can walk to Avithos beach (a leisurely 30 mins downhill on paths through olive groves) but its worth having a car to explore the other beaches that are all just 5 mins drive away....as well as the rest of the island of course! Our favourite Elionas restaurant is an easy 10 -15 min walk.

We have stayed in several villas that Angela manages and she really does go the extra mile. You'll arrive to a welcome pack with the basics that you need, and the villa will be spotless. Beds/towels are changed twice a week, and Angela has fabulous local knowledge of things to do, and nothing is too much trouble. Can't recommend this villa highly enough.

Amazing villa with breathtaking view across the Ionian sea. Fully equipped beautiful villa with a large garden and a lovely swiming pool which was great for the children. Villa a 5 minute walk from Metaxata village centre with small shop and taverna. Great base as not to far from airport and some lovely walks in the vicinity. Managed by Angela who was extremely helpful. Had an amazing time with children and grand children looking forward to a return visit.

Thank you

Amazing wonderful stay in villa Kalliana

  • 5 of 5

We all were very impressed by our stay.

The Villa KALLIANA, was exactly as described and showed in pictures of Home Away website and I could say even more better.

We had an awesome experience at this villa, located in one of the most beautiful island of Greece with the best beaches.

Fabulous, very cozy and homely. Lots of space, with large and bright rooms with big windows. It was peaceful in a quite area of Metaksata near to Argostoli (aprx.10 km).

Super clean, we have found it super tidy and clean upon arrival. The housekeepers did an excellent job.

My whole dealing with villa and especially with Mrs Angela Hitchen was perfect.

The property was very modern combined and inspired by traditional architecture lines of the island. It has three floors (2 floor+ 1basement 100% renovated), with view of swimming pool, of garden and of endless sea. Air conditioning in 3 bedrooms and living room

Everything you need in a house is provided and so convenient. We had ALL the comforts of home.

Kitchen was 100% equipped and there were towels and linens and everything we needed prepared for us.

A view patio garden where we had lunch. There was a nice and clean pool. It was great getting up in the morning and eating breakfast by the pool.

For us was very important the fact that you could feel the place like yours and like you always had been living there…may be was a very positive aura it had.

One negative I could mention is that you would need a car in order to visit the most popular beaches around the island as the nearest one is located about 1 km distance from the villa and is difficult to walk during summer with 35-40 degrees in Greece.

However it was not really an imposition and would not stop me recommending this place to anyone. You would rather need a car in any case if you desire to see all beautiful places and beaches of Kefallonia.

I recommend the villa without any doubt and would love to return one day.

I would definitely do it again to top it off a superb villa; because my 6 years old daughter and my husband loved our holidays there. The same believe the second couple who shared the villa with us (my sister and her fiancée)

We all agreed that this was ultimately one of our best stay in Greece at Villa Kalliana.

Thank you Mrs. Angela that we did up our expectations and for having this beautiful memory of experience of our holiday in Villa Kalliana (July 2015)

Best Regards Isida Linou ,Michail Sotiriou and Katris 

Awesome villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for 2 weeks and we had a great time. We loved having breakfast in the beautiful garden and enjoyed the spectacular views of the sea and the surrounding islands. Our children were in the pool from the minute they were waking up. The villa is immaculate, spacious inside, and has a great deck and pool overlooking the sea. It is in a quiet area and offers peace and tranquility while being conveniently located to both the main town, Argostoli, and to beaches on the island. We had a wonderful stay with the entire family and we are going back again this year. I would highly recommend this villa to either adults or families with children.

Unforgetable stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

An incredible view extending all the way to Zakynthos island across the Ionian sea. A wonderful newly built villa with a large lawn garden and a very nice swiming pool that comfortably accomodates up to 6 adults and 4 children. Located at Metaxata village just a 10 minutes ride from the Argostoli city centre and all the amazing beaches around Argostoli. We had an unforgetable 2-weeks stay (2 families 7 in total) with the kids playing literally all day long. I recommend this villa without any reservation!!!

Car: recommended

Villa Kallianna is a beautiful, stylish house that sleeps 6 to 8 people and is situated in the small traditional village of Metaxata. The house is set on 3 storeys and as well as being extremely tastefully decorated it is very family friendly with lots of room for children to run around and enjoy. The main living area leads out onto a spacious patio area and pool with breathtaking views across the Ionian Sea to Zakynthos. The house is a 5-minute stroll away from the traditional village of Metaxata; the village has several colourful gardens and a pretty village square with views to Mount Enos. Metaxata is a historical village, Lord Byron stayed in Metaxata for a few months, and it is where he wrote his epic poem, Don Juan. The natural beauty of Kefalonia and the friendliness of the locals inspired many of his love poems. As well as being a traditional and historical village, Metaxata has facilities such as a mini-market and one of the best Souvlaki houses on the island, ideal to walk to for a taste of the Gyros, Bifteki and other mouth-watering dishes. The next village of Lakithra, which is about 15 minutes walk away has many facilities, the baker opens each morning (except Sundays) and sells his 'bake of the day', why not call in and place your order for the week, he will gladly call round each morning and deliver to your door. Lakithra also has wonderful confectioners; the cakes are amazing but be prepared to leave your diets at home!!!! Villa Kallianna is ideally located as it is only a 15-minute drive away from the capitol of the island, Argostoli. Here you will find butchers, bakers, chemists, fruit and vegetable markets, banks, cafes, souvenir shops, delightful boutiques. It is well worth a visit to stroll around the square and enjoy tasting some of the excellent and exquisite cakes at one of the pavement cafes while watching the world go by. Also a must is to stroll along the harbour front at Argostoli and watch the fishermen coming in with their catch of the day, they are very happy to clean and prepare the fish for you and are very reasonably priced, ideal for BBQ's. There are lots of places within easy access from the villa, the beautiful beaches of Avithos, Ammes, Minies are all only a short distance frorm the villa. If you feel like venturing further and exploring more of the island, visit Mount Enos for wonderful flora and fauna, the quaint and unforgettable fishing village of Assos. The far north of the island you will find the village of Fiskardo, wonderful tavernas selling local dishes with plenty of fresh fish, enjoy your lunch on the harbour front while watching the fish jumping out of the water for bread, or even do a bit of star watching, stars like Oprah Winfrey, Michael Douglas have been spotted, or simply look longingly at the impressive and luxurious yachts moored in the harbour. Drive down to the south of the island, along the winding coastal road and stop off to visit some of the beautiful villages such as Lourdas, Vlahata, Katelios. For more hustle and bustle visit the resort of Skala, great for water sports, lots of tavernas on the beachfront to while away a lunch hour or two! There is so much to see and do for all tastes here on the wonderful island of Kefalonia, Villa Kallianna is a warm and welcoming house where you can relax amidst the luxurious and deluxe surroundings as soon as you walk through the door. It is ideally located, away from the hustle and bustle but within easy distance to all local amenities and is central for access to the whole island. To give you that extra peace of mind, shortly after you arrive you will be met at the villa by the property manager, Angela, who will spend a few minutes with you to acquaint you with the house and give you lots of tips on where to go, best places to eat etc., You will also be provided with an emergency telephone number which operates 24 hours a day.

To make your holiday extra special and to give you that total 'break away from it all' we can offer the services of our personal chef. You can enjoy watching her cook or relax around the pool while she prepares your meals, serves the meal to you and generally 'pampers' you while you put your feet up!. Details of prices and menu are available on enquiry.
