“Fantastic villa ”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017
person found this review helpful

We stayed here for 10 days and I can't fault the efficiency and hospitality of Nikos and Athinais who have created an amazing spot with all amenities (the pool is divine, salt water and with a shower alongside). Every comfort is available.

The only downside is due to location - the road in front of it is quite busy so even though you are out of town you are not completely in the quiet part of the countryside. But we did enjoy listening to the monks singing and hearing the goat bells ringing. And if you sit at the pool you are away from the noise.

“beautiful villa, amazing hosts, perfect location”
Reviewed October 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Villa Athinais for 1 week in July, but it was definitely not enough! We couldn't believe how cheap the stay was for such an extensive, modern, well equipped, well situated, beautiful villa. There were only 3 of us staying there, but the place could have fit two small families! The pool area was beautifully done to such a high standard and the patio area with the built in bbq was perfect for dinners. the wicker chairs was also a nice spot to sit to watch the sunset, as well as the top balcony where we would sit and have drinks in the evening and listen to the monks singing across the valley. although the villa was secluded, we did not feel unsafe at any moment, the villa had electric gates and very secure doors and windows and also the entire area around us was just farm land and the monastery. The villa was well situated for visiting numerous beaches and Lixouri town was quaint and cute for an evening meal. the hosts were so welcoming, accommodating and helpful with any problems. Could not recommend this place enough, we would love to go back one day !

“Amazing Villa and hosts!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We ( my husband and three children: ages 15, we, and 9) are visiting Lixouri, Cephalonia for the first time and have had a terrific experience. Firstly, the accommodations are beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. The scenery is spectacular and the hosts, Athinaidas and Nikos are friendly, warm, and extremely helpful. Villa Athaniadas has exceeded our expectations. Beaches are beautiful and Lixouri is wonderful. Totally recommend it! You will not be disappointed. Even the children love it!!
