We arrived to a wonderful villa with a great pool. Very large bedrooms all ensuite, all mod cons included. The owner has thought of everything.
I would recommend car hire but be careful if the narrow roads and steep hills. Although taxi service is very good and reasonably priced.
Local restaurants are superb, great value for money..circa €20-€25 per head alcohol included. Local wine excellent! Would recommend the villa and destination...
We always come to Lourdas for its peaceful, relaxing vibe, great family run restaurants and lovely beaches. It is almost shabby chic and we mean that in a nice way! This time we needed larger accommodation than usual as we took our 2 grown up boys and their girlfriends. The accommodation was perfect-great for get togethers around the pool, bbq and veranda but loads of space to sunbathe and relax in privacy too. Warm welcome and clean-Highly recommended
Villa Rhakotis provided us, 5 adults, with everything we needed for our stay in Lourdas. It was a lovely setting for the start of our daughter's wedding held nearby.
The villa was spacious, each bedroom has ensuite, and plenty of shady outside areas to enjoy. The pool was lovely, clean and of a good size. The facilities were all of a very high standard and both air-conditioning and wifi worked perfectly.
The views all round of the bay and the mountains were gorgeous.
You need to be reasonably fit to walk up to the villa from the village road, so a car is a must (excellent off street parking at the villa) but plenty of bars, tavernas and supermarkets within easy reach. Both the owner and his representative Eleni provided us with excellent service and dealt very efficiently with any queries we had.
We have just returned from an amazing holiday at Villa Rhakotis: Stunning views over Lourdas beach with its beautiful sunsets; extremely spacious, well-equipped accommodation, air conditioning throughout (very welcome!); masses of outside space (six terraces/balconies) and a gorgeous pool. There is even a jacuzzi bath in the master en-suite! We would recommend hiring a car (we did) as there are only a couple of tavernas within walking distance, and it's a very, very steep walk back from the beach! Our only criticism is that there was no welcome pack, not even a bottle of water, when we arrived, but apart from that minor fault this was a fabulous holiday rental.
We had the best holiday at Rhakotis Villa it was perfect for myself my husband and 3 older children ages 16-25. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The Villa is everything it claims to be and more. Beautiful inside and out with the added luxury of a generous size pool and relaxing BBQ area. It is equipped with everything you may need like a home from home. Sue and Jeff are lovely and very helpful meeting us at the airport was very much appreciated. Kefalonia is very beautiful and we look forward to going back in the near future.

Villa Rhakotis is a beautiful villa, perched on a hillside with amazing views of the sea. It is extremely comfortable, with a lovely pool and walking distance to a superb beach and some wonderful restaurants along the beach front. Karen, Jeff and Sue (and the pool maintenance man) were all so helpful with suggestions for restaurants (Olive Lounge and Klimatis were among our favourites) and excursions, but the lure of pool and beach nearby meant that we rarely strayed from the villa. The outside eating areas afforded amazing sunset views and the bedroom balconies were perfect from which to enjoy the peace and quiet of Lourdas. Another bonus was the proximity to the airport. It meant that we were poolside within an hour of arriving on the island! The local supermarket was also very well stocked and the local people were very friendly.

This is a first rate villa which is very tastefully fitted out and has wonderful views not only of the sea but also of Mount Ainos to the rear of the property. The bedrooms are spacious, the beds very comfy and the master bedroom has spectacular views to the sea and mountain from two separate balconies. Each bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom. The villa has a lovely shaded BBQ area and the pool area is fantastic with plenty of comfy loungers and places to sit. Whilst a car is necessary the villa is well situated for restaurants and supermarkets in both Lourdas and Vlachata. The Olive Lounge is the stand out place to eat, well worth a try. Dealings with Elias were both smooth and pleasant and Karen was a friendly face to greet us and take us to the property.
