“The best vacation ever”
Reviewed July 11, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Hey guys,

So this was the perfect vacation for 12 individuals. The villa has everything you need and more. The bedrooms have great beds, the kitchen is fully equipped, you have caiacs to go on the sea through the private beach which is 100meters away, bicycicles to go discover the scenery and the infinity pool which is awesome.

Did I mention there is no one around and you cannot disturb anyone? A farm nextdoor with horses? Brace yourself, as things are going to be only better, because the hosts are wonderfull people and they will assist you with anything you need during your stay.

Guys, keep up the good work and see you soon!!!

“One of the best holidays since now”
Reviewed July 6, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Even though the trip to the villa is quite long, when you arrive here, you are just astounded by the view, the genius design of the villa and the way wind blows wherever you are on the property.
Gorgeous settlement with a lot of plants gives it the best place to just chill and recharge your batteries.
The pool, the pool is just amazing both during the day and night. During the night there are changing lights inside and the whole set-up just absorbs you and makes the perfect place for stargazing.
George and Katerina are simply the best hosts ever. They are very kind, beautiful people and they helped us with everything we needed, making this experience even more awesome.
Many thanks guys, for sure it will not be long until we will come back!

“Highly recommended villa with great infinity pool !!!”
Reviewed June 6, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This is by far the most amazing villa and experience I've had in Greece. Visited Athens, Kephalonia and Santorini. Out of all three, Kephalonia hands down wins and this is all thanks to Kat & George! This part of Greece is truly a hidden gem and I really wish people would come to know of this place! At first my family and I were hesitant because it was far from the airport, however, Kat & George provided free shuttle and it did not even take us long to reach their stunning & creatively structured Villa! We were welcomed so sweetly by Kat's Mom and she picked out fresh flowers from her garden to wish me a Happy Birthday! I even had balloons & a bottle of Moet to pop! The hospitality here has been outstanding! Anything you can think of, Kat & George are on top of it and makes sure you have it! They pretty much know everyone on the island and we loved the VIP treatment we got every place they recommended to us. They definitely spoiled us and we loved every single bit of it! They are the most lovely and kind people I have met and so glad to have met them!! The rooms were perfect, common areas were spacious, kitchen is fully equipped with fresh veggies in the garden outside, lots of activities to do (yup, I made it a point to use the gym while on vacation) and best of all the infinity pool was perfect. We all relaxed by that pool and had the perfect sunrise and sunset to watch (yes, better than what you see in Oia!! Pictures uploaded have not be edited whatsoever) They also have super friendly dogs that we got to play with and pet their horses and donkeys! My niece and nephew (2-4 yrs) had a blast at this resort!! I cannot wait to go back and stay at this villa again! Perfect place for some R&R! Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Greece!! A big thank you to Kat & George! You two are the sweetest!! Thank you for giving us an exceptional experience in Kephalonia that we can always remember! FAM from the 6ix misses you both!

“YOU MUST STAY AT THIS VILLA IF YOU ARE VISITING KEFALONIA!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

If you are looking for hospitality at it's best, look no further!!! Where do I begin?!! First of all, Kefalonia is a hidden gem of it's own. If you visit Greece you need to visit Kefalonia. Second if you visit Kefalonia and do not stay at this villa then consider your visit to be a waste. George and Kat have by far exceeded the hospitality of any 5-star hotel. From the moment we landed to the moment we left nothing but pure and unforgettable hospitality. George took us to the best restaurants in town, showed us a great night out and the list just goes on. Not only is their villa spectacular and beautiful but George went way beyond our expectations and was always there for us whenever we needed anything. Whatever we needed and at whatever time of the day he was there to provide for us!! Our minds were blown away by their hospitality. Amazing villa and amazing people. I just can't express how impressed we were by the hospitality. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

“Amazing place and generous hosts”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

If you want a real luxury spacious villa in an unspoilt area that is nearby to different beaches and local tavernas, fancy a bit of biking and are going as several families or extended family, then this place is for you. It's only 10 minutes from Lixouri.
Sometimes when you get to your holiday place, you realise they have used a wide angle lens and the place is actually quite small but actually the photos don't do the villa justice. It's huge and beautifully appointed and each bedroom has its own bathroom and the kitchen/dining/lounge area is bigger than I expected.
Katerina, the hostess is definitely very welcoming and we had a fully stocked fridge on arrival and a lovely meal waiting for us. Our rental cars were delivered direct to the villa.
It's was my Mum's 80th birthday celebrations so with grand-children and children, we needed somewhere spacious with lots to do. There's a gorgeous pool with views over the Med, lots of patio space, pool table, gym, table tennis table and lovely grounds, as well as a private beach. Kat also helped sort out diving, para-gliding, and horse riding and helped us book a sailing boat for the main birthday day and found us a chef who cooked some delicious Greek dishes on the evening. We used most of the facilities but didn't get round to using the kayaks.
We will definitely be coming back at some point in the future as we had such a relaxing time and felt totally pampered by Kat, George and Lula..fresh tomatoes and water melons from the garden every day. Great BBQ. Thank you all for giving Mum so many lovely memories with the family for her birthday festival!

“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.
