We stayed for a week this summer together with our 4 year old son at Villa Ianthe. First I would recommend to everyone to choose September for their holidays, as everything is less crowded than August, second I would recommend Kefalonia compared to other Greek islands. It does not have the wind of the Aegean and it has lots more activities and places to see compared with other Ionian islands. Last but not least I would recommend Villa Ianthe. The place is build with the care someone would put on his private house, not on a property he rents, the garden is perfect and safe for kids to play and the owners make every effort to accommodate any needs you may have.

Definitely a pleasant, above expectations experience.

Thanks a lot for your review! It was great accommodating your family at Villa Ianthe. We hope your little one had fun riding his bicycle in the garden while you were enjoying your quiet breakfasts at the terrace overlooking the olive groves and the Ionian Sea!

Korallis Villas was the epitome of relaxation and relief for us. Having arrived in early September at a different hotel - which we found to be disappointing and ultimately unacceptable - our previous hosts introduced us to Katerina Korallis and Villa Ianthe, which to our delight was available to us on very short notice for an extended stay. We remained alone for most of September, taking in the sights, sounds, and often finding ourselves satisfied with long stays at the Villa.

Since we were with our 9-month old son, we found the facility particularly ideal for our needs with spaciousness comparable to our North American tastes, a relatively quiet location, and unmatched cleanliness. Most of all, great service. Thank you Katerina! :-)

“Perfect location, excellent facilities”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Korallis Villas in July 2013 and we really enjoyed this experience.

The location is ideal and the villas new & well equiped. The owners are always available and very helpful in suggesting places, beaches or sightseeing tours.

The position in the middle of the island is ideal with both sea&mountain view.

Excellent for families or couples/friends.

“A memorable stay at Koralis Villas”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The villas are situated in an excellent location for a quiet holiday and boast fabulous mountain and sea views. Well designed and roomy, immaculately clean and airy, and the grounds are covered in gorgeous plants and flowers, ideal to sit in the garden at night to enjoy the heavenly scents. Maria and Panos, the owners, are extremely helpful and polite and the hospitality exceeds expectation. Travelling with teenagers was great as we were away from the commercial busy parts of the island but close enough to pop to a good restaurant( Maria has a wealth of experience on this!) or for a drink in the evening in Argostoli. The beaches near by are excellent and we mostly loved Ag Thomas , a small sandy bay with a lovely garden bar and two tavernas plus some interesting rock formations to explore snorkelling. All in all we had a great time at Koralis Villas and we highly recommend to anyone, families and couples. Oh, and yes, we would love to return!

My family and me spent one week in villa Thalia, we recomend the Korallis Villa's for all. The accomodation is perfect, the house is well furnished and cleaned, the location is more convenient to reach the beaches like Makris Gialos, Lourdata and near to Skala the beach of Kaminia.
