Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Villa Kallisto and we were not disappointed!

Myself, partner and our 2 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed a lovely week late September. The villa was again beautifully clean, well equipped and the weather was amazing. We visited last year in May and enjoyed the villa and the island so much that we decided to come back in September. The weather was even better than in May and our daughter loved the pool that much we had trouble getting her out!!

It was really nice to find that Argostoli had a new addition at the lagoon - pedal car boats!! These were great and so much fun with our daughter. We also stumbled across a children's fun fair which had so many rides and activities for toddlers - our daughter had such a fun time - highly recommend if you have a little one!

The grounds and views at Villa Kallisto are beautiful and you can tell that the owners Eileen and Mike take a lot of pride in their wonderful home - so thank you again to them both for sharing this with us.

We would highly recommend the Villa and are even thinking of booking for a third time next year.

Thank you again to you both from the Marsh family.

Perfect family holiday in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in villa Kallisto in September and it couldn't have been more perfect . First holiday with our 3 month old daughter , I was obviously a little nervous. But the villa had everything we needed an more . From a mothercare travel cot , brand new high chair and even a steriliser provided for us . The villa is so well equipped , everything has been thought of . There was even a bath ( not just a shower ) which with a baby is fantastic . The villa it's self was spotless and felt very luxurious . The pool was also spotless and was cleaned on a couple of occasions during our stay . There's nothing negative I could say bout this villa . It's in a great location , so quite and private but still everything you could need in a close distance . As the villa is split into 2 separate villas , it would be perfect for 2 family's holidaying together but you still get your own space . Will definitely be back. And thanks to Mike & Eileen for helping sort out a car seat with the hire car for us . Made everything so easy :-)

Wonderful holiday in gorgeous Villa Kallisto.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Kallisto recently and had a lovely holiday. There was me and my husband, our daughter her husband and toddler and our son and his wife. The villa had everything you could think of and was beautifully clean. The fridge was stocked with the essentials, butter, bread, juice etc when we arrived and the car hire we booked through Eileen and Mike went very smoothly with us picking the car up at the airport. The was a big Lidl and Carrefour supermarket within a 10 minute drive so we did a huge shop and bbqd most evenings. The pool was clean and was cleaned mid week too. We had asked for a highchair which was not there but we emailed and within an hour a lady turned up and brought in a brand new one which was locked in the outhouse in the garden. Pessada is so quiet you could hear a pin drop and the walk down to the port to see the ferry come in and have a drink in the little tavern is recommended. We swam off the rocks in the clear blue sea. I would highly recommend the villa and the communication with the owners was brilliant. You would definitely need a car as there is nothing in the village but for us that was the appeal as we all wanted a restful holiday which was exactly what we had. We have been to Kephalonia a number of times it is such a beautiful island. Many thanks to Mike and Eileen for letting us stay in their lovely villa.

One word,, Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa, absolutely masses of room, fully fitted kitchen , upstairs and downstairs, brilliant views, when eating out on the balcony , what I love is how adaptable, it is, if your a family with children , it's fine , if it's a group, you can have the privacy, or with your older parents, it covers all aspects, we travelled all over the island to the tavernas, the castle family run restraunt is a must! Everyone is so friendly , food is the best , and also get "treats " when you leave , we got home made marmalade, and treats after your meal, strawberry , dipped in white chocolate, day after , home made ice cream, went beaches, went into fiscado, went to the monastery, went to Denises, would definetly recommend to friends and family , well done Eileen & mike , (owners) your doing a brilliant job, also recommending where to go places to see, hiring a car, beaches, and tavernas , downside was coming home, but will definetly be back, the Greeks are so pleasant ,

Couldn't Have Been More Perfect for our Party of 8!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Mike and Eileen for, sharing your wonderful house with us. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about it - it is spacious, sunny, tastefully decorated, comfortable, well-equipped, etc. The layout gave our party of eight a lot of space for privacy if we should choose, but also a lot of space in which to spend time together. We were fortunate to have our own private chef with us (my husband was a chef before becoming a baker) so we took full advantage of the kitchens, the great barbecue, the meat market on the way to Argostoli and the fish market in Argostoli. After sea kayaking all day, it was really nice to cool off in the pool with a glass of rose while dinner was being prepared! We appreciated the thoughtful welcome package, and the use-and-replace wine arrangement - it simplified our evening arrival to the island after 26 hours of travel. I highly recommend this house and would love to be able to come back to it some day. (I only have one complaint - we tried multiple times, but we never did find the access to the secluded sandy beach!! We finally saw it from our kayaks, but would like to have seen it from land! Oh well, we got to enjoy a lot of other beaches, and our ever elusive beach gave us something to joke about!)

Owner's Response: Thank you Debbie for you're review we are delighted to hear you enjoyed you're Holiday at Villa Kallisto.and we would love to welcome you and you're party back in the future. And as for Pessada beach the access is hidden slightly down the first lane on the left hand side coming back from the Harbour and it's a pity you didn't manage to find it as it is a bit of a special place Kind Regards Eileen & Mike

Fabulous facilities and lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Dear Eileen and Mike, a very warm thank you .My family (7 of us) had a wonderful time at your lovely villa. It met all our expectations, there was everything we could possibly need to make a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

The directions from the Airport to your villa were easy to follow and all instructions were clear and concise regarding your villa. We were met by Kim who gave us lots helpful advice on places to visit and where to eat. We managed to cram in lots during the 7 days. However we could not do everything we wanted to so, Beth and I will be back to visit the island on our own, and hopefully for a longer period.

I have no hesitation what so ever in strongly recommending anyone to stay at your lovely villa. Thank you from Nick and Beth Trantham and family.
