We simply can't wait to return to this wonderful property. Situated in a rural area, the facilities here are second to none.
From the welcome we received on arrival, each and every day the friendly staff greeted us with smiles and the utmost kindness. Nikos and his brother Vasillus run the site and nothing is too much bother for them, Angela at the poolside bar is always happy to serve and is a mine of information on Greek cooking. Our room was cleaned every day by Jonida who supplied clean linen every 2/3 days, the service we received from her was excellent.
Contrary to what a previous review says the linen and towels are of top quality and spotlessly clean (any interested visitors should make a point of totally disregarding that particular review as we can tell you first hand and after numerous visits the review is a load of codswallop, obviously written by someone with malicious intent, please ignore it it isn't true).
The gardens are well laid out and tended constantly by Niko - don't try to walk with him, the man is lightening fast! As for the pool, well we are both keen swimmers and this has to be the best maintained and cleanest pool we have ever had the pleasure of swimming in. The exercise certainly helped a little to counter the good eating.
There are numerous restaurants in the area all within 4-6 minutes drive, in our opinion the best are Fois Restaurant run by Nicky and Spero Fois - try their briam as you'll be back for more. The other restaurant is at Avithos Beach, Enetiko run by Dmitrius.
The room we had is a maisonette which was very spacious with a large balcony overlooking the gardens, vineyards and olive groves. The sunsets are sensational. Compared with other self-catering facilities we have experienced in the past the cooking facilities are very good we even managed a couple of good meals including stifado and briam.
We'll conclude by stressing how friendly everyone at Avithos is, it was a genuine pleasure to visit and meet these lovely people. We are now looking forward to June when we know we will have another unforgettable holiday.
This place is simply the best is Cephalonia, you will not be disappointed.
