We didn't stay in the Ranzo accommodation, but just up the road in Kosta's House - all of a 3 minute walk down to the restaurant here. There is no official menu - you are just told what is good today for starters and main courses. We had Greek salad, okra, stuffed tomatoes and beef stifado. All were fantastic, tasty... More

An amazing stay in one of the two cottages. Well fitted out and a view to match any on the island. Why travel elsewhere for the sun set when you can have it here with excellent Greek food and amazing and friendly service. Great value for money as the food is up to some the Fiscardo standard and beyond -... More

If you're looking for a place where the Greeks go for dinner, this it it. Simple tasty organic food, prepared in a wood oven. Don't come any earlier than 20.00 PM, as you will be sitting by yourself. The Greeks arrive only after sunset. There is no menu but always a choice of 5 or 6 dishes. We had the... More

Fabulous place to stay - free sunsets and don't forget to look at the stars. We had Ranzo 2, booked through Simpsons Travel, with our own pool. Clean, spacious, wonderful setting. Family run it really is a fantastic place to stay - we only ate there twice but it was great. You can walk to the local village for alternative... More

This is the third year running that we have come to this idyllic place. This year we have taken a sort of retirement/sabbatical and are here for 8 whole weeks. Such bliss! Ranzo wove a spell over us from day one of our first visit, but gradually over the last two years the family have worked to turn the already... More

We have just returned from a week at Ranzo Ionio 1 which was booked through Simpson Travel. We went in search of a chill out after a stressful first half to the year and found it in abundance and more. This is a special place and once you get the hang of the slight chaos in the Tavern a Yannis... More

Ranzo ionio is quite possibly the most stunning place I have ever come across. I went with my family for a friends wedding being held near by. You feel like you are a million miles from reality surrounded by the most breathtaking scenery and being looked after by the most kind and helpful people you could wish for. The accommodation...

This is a jewel of a place on the beautiful island of Kephalonia. If you want a taste of Greece with amazing views of the sea and a peaceful quiet retreat from life...this is the place! The little villas/rooms are beautiful, unique and 'tastefully' rustic. Surrounded by olive groves, lemon trees and a variety of homegrown produce which you can... More

After looking on Trip Advisor we chose Ranzo Ionio for a week's sunshine holiday (20th-28th May 2012). We are so pleased we did. We have had an amazing holiday! The views are just stunning - across the glittering Ionian Sea. All the house/apartments are different and very tastefully and colourfully decorated. It's a family run concern - and we were... More
