I read the reviews before I went and thought they were good but the experience was even better. Located on the road opposite the beach 10 steps away - however, the pool although small was lovely and such an oasis of peace that I think I only left it for the odd walk to another coffee shop or gelateria. Once... More

As our first visit to Villa Costa had been so wonderfully relaxing, we were inevitably concerned that the second wouldn’t match up. Shame on us for doubting. Everything was just the same – except the wifi was sorted as well! The staff remain completely unchanged; the feeling of complete relaxation in beautifully manicured surroundings with really wonderful, light food returned... More

If you love Greece but fancy staying somewhere a little bit special then I suggest you try Villa Costa. Located in Scala, Kefalonia, this pine-scented resort is a pretty little place in itself, but on entering the gates of Villa Costa, you find yourself in a tiny Greek paradise, an oasis with the highest standards of customer service.

A first class boutique hotel what a wonderful experience .THe setting is perfect directly opposite the beautiful Ionian Sea yet behind the gates within the villa grounds it almost feels like it is your own beautiful piece of paradise. A wonderful welcome from Mario and his lovely Mum and then truly cared for by Theo and Dimitri and the other... More

I went to Villa Costa with my 17 year old son for a week of sun and relaxation. It far exceeded all expectations. It is very clear that this small family run hotel is managed with great care and thought. The food was stunning and the range and quality of local wines and cocktails a real treat. The hotel and...

Great food, great service and location. Really quiet and relaxing. Theo is a wiz at cocktails and Mario is a great host. You can relax by the pool or cross the road too the sea. Hire a car and explore the beautiful east coast or walk along in too the town and see the roman villa.

Thank you Mario, Theo and everyone else for a wonderful stay. This was our first time at Villa Costa and we will definitely be returning. We stayed in the Helene room which had the most wonderful sea view. The pool and garden were immaculate and the food was some of the best we have had on holiday. The wine tasting... More

Well this was our 4th visit to the wonderful Villa Costa...it certainly is our favourite place to unwind and relax. We only had a week this time which went by far too quickly; but we are already looking at going back next year. Mario has certainly put some work in on starting a refurbishment programme for all the rooms.... 2... More
