“Fantastic villa and pool”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A beautiful property in a stunning location.
The villa was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. The grounds and pool were always immaculate.
Our host, Paraskevas, took great pride in his properties and delivered a very high standard of hospitality. He did his utmost to ensure a relaxing stay and was always available without being intrusive. An abundance of food and drink was supplied on arrival, which meant that shopping could be done at our leisure.
The location is remote but not far from the very quiet main road. A car is necessary to explore the island and Paraskevas was happy to share his local knowledge, recommending places to visit and the best roads to take.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the future.

“A blissful week in perfect surroundings”

The villa was faultless and the owner marvellous. He met us at the airport, helped us find the car rental office, then lead us to his wonderful property. This was a late-season visit, so the island was already calming down, but we still enjoyed warm and sunny weather. The villa is located in a stunning coastal location and is very peaceful. We heard goats being driven from field to field, and the occasional call of a buzzard, but that's about all. The hire car is essential; it is too far to walk for provisions etc. The owner Paraskevas offered to arrange the hire with a company he knew and trusted, but we'd already signed up for the Easyjet affiliate Europcar. My advice would be to take up Paraskevas' offer... The sunsets we viewed from the pool, the terrace, or one of the balconies, were sublime - I must have taken dozens of photos! If you could tear yourself away from the villa to do some sightseeing most attractions were within a 40 minute drive. Drivers of a nervous disposition might want to avoid some of the more mountainous roads though. After one of the more exciting drives we were rewarded with the sight of a tennis court in a Roman amphitheatre! (You can find it in the village of Old Skala.)

“Idylic Get Away”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

A well-appointed immaculately maintained property, by the owner and wife who reside on site, with every amenity that you need for a wonderful self-sufficient retreat. Situated in the foot hills of Mount Enos at Platies, just off the main road from Argostoli to Poros and Skala with only a few houses within a 1 km radius. Set in its own grounds with one other villa and the owners own house, this property commands breath taking views set back 60m from the edge of the property that drops 200m directly away to the sea, with Zante directly across the water.

The villa has 2 double bedrooms with excellent bathroom facilities and its own private swimming pool with towels provided, all linen is changed mid-week.

The owners Paraskevas & Katrina, personally oversee the running and upkeep of the property, providing a personal tailored service to each set of guests. Paraskevas & Katrina are very personal people with excellent communication skills and are always available for help and provide local information, keeping discreet owner guest relationship.
Local shops and amenities are a short car ride away and the location is ideally set for short trips to either, Lourdata, Lassis, Fanari and Argostoli west of the property or Skala, Poros and Sami to the east.

We have been to Kefalonia many times since the mid 1980’s and have holidayed at some stunning locations, this property and location is the best by miles. You will not be disappointed and like us will be resolved to return again ASAP.

“Ocean views + Odysseus = Bliss!”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

One of the best holidays myself and the D have taken. From the moment we were greeted by our wonderful host, Paraskevas, at the airport and first took sight of our villa, we knew we'd made the right choice. A fridge filled with local delights confirmed that! From the infinity pool (early morning dips with the ocean in front of us and the mountains behind) to the shaded patio (I enjoy the sun from the shade), everything was perfect. The location in Platies is quiet (which suits us) but you're only 40 minutes from the main town bustle of Argostoli and a shorter drive to Lourdas Beach to the west and the slightly busier Katelios to the east. But if you're looking to just relax with some paperbacks (I'm old school) or a Kindle (D's embraced the digital age) and some fresh feta, tomatoes and olives, well this is the place for you. Paraskevas was the perfect host, a winning combination of available and discreet. If we could have stayed another week, we would have!. Will we be going back? For sure!

We had an absolutely lovely stay at villa Odysseus. It has beautiful sea views and is so lovely, quiet and relaxing.

The villa was extremely clean/spotless/well maintained and had everything we needed. The owner, Paraskevas is such a lovely man and so very helpful & friendly, he went the extra mile to make our stay perfect and rememberable. He truly is an outstanding host.

We hired a car and Paraskevas circled on a map a route around the island for us to drive and some amazingly beautiful places to visit along the way like myrtos beach, assos, melissani cave etc. We had a truly memorable experience and throughly enjoyed our stay in Kefalonia.

I would highly recommend villa Odysseus and look forward to hopefully returning in the near future for another holiday here.

“Excellent villa, incredible experience!”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this villa two times (2014 and 2015) and decided to return in 2016. We use to travel to Greece every summer - for the last 15 years - in different locations, in different islands and we can say that, definitely, this is the best accommodation, location and friendly environment we experienced.

The owner, Paraschevas, is an outstanding host and his villas are having excellent views and living conditions. The cleanness and facilities are at the highest standards.

We can't wait to come again in August 2016 - already booked for 3 weeks! We look forward to clean pool waters, cold beers and interesting Greek philosophical discussions with Paraschevas!
