Set in the most favourable and tranquil location in the village of Sarlata, amidst luscious olive and cypress groves and taking full advantage of the space and the view, these two villas offer the highest standards of accommodation in the idyllic island of Kefalonia. The villas were completed in spring 2008 ensuring complete privacy.

we have just return from a 10 days vacation in Kefalonia at Alexandra Villa. We drove by car almost 3.000 km (including the way back) but it was worth it a lot. The Alexandra villa is absolutely wonderful from all points of view (a location with an impressive view to the sea and above the village, villa with everything you want from pool, relaxing area, interiors of the villa, kitchen very well equipped, etc). Everything is well maintained and looks like new and very, very clean.
The location is near the interesting beaches, you will find in the nearby a mini market or even a pharmacy if you need, and also you are near the capital of the island if you want to go to the town. Even the villa is near the airport (aprox 3-4 km), this aspect is not an inconvenient being from kids point of view, an attraction because you will see from the distance how the planes lands or takes off on/from the island without to hear a disturbing noise.
The Kefalonia island is beautiful and to discover it you will need for sure a car (if you will go by plane) but on the island you will find plenty offers for rent a car. During these days (with unstable greek situation), you will need to have with you extra cash to avoid bank problems or card payments, so in my opinion, cancelling your reservation is a mistake because having enough cash with you and being on a island not on the continent you will not feel these days greek's problems.
During the stay, we kept in touch with Elina (the owner of the villa) and she was available to give us all the necessary information.
We fully recommend Alexandra or Elina villas from Sarlata / Kefalonia, and we are taking seriously into consideration to return next year. It was a pleasure to have the summer vacation in that location.
PS: The location looks better in reality compared with the site presentation, which is also very attractive :)

Booked Villa Alexandra for two weeks in July. I at the time didn't realise how close the Villa is to the Airport but fear not fellow travellers although its close it does not disturb your stay at all. You can see the runway from the garden but the Villa is above the airport on a hill which makes for interesting viewing. Beds comfortable AC worked well (it was in the 30's every day) BBQ area fantastic, maid service great but we asked for every other day which was enough, the maid even tided my teenagers bedroom every visit ! . Location is good for Capital which has many great resturants and a very good food market and bakers. Elina booked us a day on a yacht from Argistoli which was a great way of seeing the Island. Pool is by far the best we have had at a Villa and we loved the spa pool at night. Plenty of parking and private gates which work on a remote is a great Idea. Would highly recommend the villa.
What an amazing place, the views from the pool are breathtaking and were a pleasure to wake up to every morning. The pool is huge and with a large jacuzzi and big barbecue area you don't want to leave the villa.
We had a fantastic week in villa Alexandra, and will certainly return.
This is a great villa, perfect for families and groups alike. Its well maintained and equipped, very close to the airport - but far enough away not to be affected by the arrivals and departures, at least for us it didn't have an impact. While the interior is well furnished, its the outside space that is the real winner and if like us you spend most of your time outside then you can't ask for a better setting with great views and pool/jacuzzi. Cleaned daily and our rooms were tidied also. Although its located just a few kilometers from the airport and shops, you will probably struggle without a car or some form of transport (scooter is perfect for travelling around the local area and island) due to the steep hill its located on - this is probably the only thing you will need to take into consideration when booking. On the flip side you wouldn't get views like you do if you were not on such a hill! its just 10mins drive to the capital Argostoli and all the amenities and restaurants there, with Lassi, the largest local resort with the best beach in the area (Makris Gialos) also on the same road about 7 mins drive away. Highly recommended!
Wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings . Vila and pool perfect, just as advertised. Daily maid service was greatly appreciated. Many beaches and restaurants within easy reach by car, as was the capital Argostoli. Would highly recommend this property.
Villa alexandra was an exquisite place , it ticked all the boxes and would highly recommend it to anyone , beautiful island and ideal location to be based , we will definitely be returning in the near future .

What can we say. The villas are as perfect as they look. We got married on the island through mygreekwedding & these villas made the day & the whole stay more than we could have hoped for.
They are so easy to find literally 5 minutes to the airport. Don't worry though if you haven't been to Kefalonia the airport is tiny so you hear maybe 2 planes a day & to be honest you enjoy watching them. They don't fly over you at all.
The villas are set up on the hill with stunning views, 3 eagles fly above daily & all you hear is the ringing of bells on goats down below. The villas are not really overlooked by other properties or each other. You drive up quite a steep hill to a private gate but explore as there are 2 ways to the villas so you can avoid the hill.
The interior of the villas is slightly smaller than the photos suggest but this is NOT a negative. They are still spacious & as beautiful as in the photos. Each room has AC & the upstairs rooms have balconies. We had our baby in the master bedroom with us in a travel cot provided & still had plenty of room. Kitchen lacked storage for food but that is because so much equipment is provided. Stick it all in one cupboard!
The pool....bigger than expected! Nice & shallow at one end for kids then deep at the other. Im 6'3 & could just touch the bottom. The jacuzzi was a really good size too. Villa Elina has more grassed area for games but Alexandra's pool catches the morning sun so was slightly warmer so depends what you prefer.
We stayed for 2 weeks in villa Elina then some more friends & family came in our second week to stay in Alexandra. Our ages ranged from 2 years old to 81 years old & every person loved & enjoyed the villas.
We don't think you will find anything nicer! Enjoy your stay

The two luxury villas are set in the most favorable and tranquil location in the village of Sarlata, in the Livathos region of Kefalonia. Sarlata is a unique village located 10 minutes from Argostoli, the capital, 5 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from the islands main resort of Lassi and is ideally situated for exploring the whole of Kefalonia. The area has an abundance of small traditional Greek villages where you will find taverns serving Greek and Kefalonian dishes. Some of the most beautiful sandy beaches of the southern part of the island, like Makris and Platis Gialos in Lassi, Avithos, Minies and Ai Helis are a few minutes drive away, while the nearest beach, Ammes, is only 1km away.
