“The best villa in Greece ”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We came to this villa for the second year as we loved it so much the year before. The most important thing to mention was that the owner Katerina was very welcoming and helpful and was kind as well. Her mother would bring us fresh eggs and other fresh produce she was growing every morning. Kosta and her interns were also very helpful and nice.

The villa itself was very luxurious with beautiful big bedrooms, and bathrooms and toilets in each room. The swimming pool is also very clever as it uses sea water (with little chlorine) instead of completely chlorinated water which is much better in my opinion.

The sea is also a 1 minute walk away and the sea is only used by us as it is private and only for the use of the guests at the Vila. There were also many other different activities to do such as biking, canoeing, pool table, board games and many more.

But for us the most refreshing aspect of the villa was how amazing the people were there and especially Katerina who showed and admirable love for her place and for all her animals there and took great pride and care for everything including the animals. Thank you Katerina for a lovely holiday for the second time.

“Just absolutely fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed May 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

When we arrived, we couldn't believe our eyes.... It was like the brochure but even better! The villa is brilliant, spacy and well designed. Peaceful and quiet so perfect for relaxing but also very close to Lixouri. The animals around the villa made our stay even better, we love them very much.

Kostis, Katerina and mama Loula are a true delight. Friendly, helpfull and they will do whatever they can to make your stay as pleasent as possible.

You can stay al the farm and just relax (and enjoy the most magnificent sunsets!!!) but if you want to be a little more active, there's more than enough to do and see. We took the mountainbikes to the lighthouse and it was awesome! We also enjoyed horsebackriding and loved each and every minute of it....

Thanks to Kostis, Katerina and Loula for making our stay unique. We will be back again!!!

Stayed here with my family and husband's family. Villa was immaculate and finished to a very high standard. Hospitality we received from Katerina, Kostas and mama loula was unbelievable - we were spoilt with food gifts throughout the week! We really enjoyed their company and were so thankful of their help when our suitcases didnt arrive at the airport. We would have been lost without them. Cannot say enough about this place - we will be coming back and will recommend to everyone. Only comment i have is that if you really don't like cats, this place may not be for you. Luckily we love animals so not a problem for us!

we were anxious to see the Villa after we booked it. it was too good to be true (as seen from the ads). we were most surprised to find it not only true but even better from the photos of the ads. excellent in fact in every way. clean, organised for elder people & baby trolleys, serene, with amazing views of the Ionian sea all around us. the children loved the animals of the farm & everyone appreciated mama's Loula excellent traditional dishes. although self catering, there was not a single day that we weren't offered local dishes , eggs, fruits & vegetables from the family's organic garden. I , as a cook my self, was amazed about the equipment of the kitchen. we were able to cook from Chinese to French fancy sweets!!! were were also given toys & inflatable beds/mats for the swimming pool & the sea. the children loved it & we didn't have to carry them all the way from France or buy them from Kefalonia. Katerina & kostas met us at the airport upon arrival . we are so grateful for their help with luggage & for not being lost in this big island. the same with our departure! keep it like this guys. it's obvious that you love what you are doing & that reflects on your guests. we'll be back next year withthe rest of our big family! THANK YOU
