“Absolutly fabulous”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

The perfect place for a quiet break for two (or a small family. It really did suit us perfectly - such a romantic setting - really, really sensational views - you can see right across to Zakynthos from the apartment balcony. Peaceful with just enough of a buzz of human activity around the place.

We would highly recommend car hire. We had a car for the entire week and whilst we didn't do a huge amount of sight seeing (highly recommend a trip to Sami), it really is quite a walk to get to the local shop and Trapezaki beach, paticularly when it's 30+ degrees!!

We willl definitely be returning - what a perfect holiday!

I searched through so many different hotels when deciding where to stay in Kefalonia; I am so glad I chose to stay at VIlla Rosa.

Where do I begin? Well, we were very warmly welcomed by Joy, Rosa's daughter, when we first arrived, who showed us to our beautiful appartment. The appartment was clean, well decorated with beautiful views out towards the island of Zante. After we'd unpacked and got settled, we went to the pool bar where Joy made us one of her amazing cocktails. It truly was the perfect start to our first holiday abroad together.

Joy was incredibly accommodating, and every morning we would have a chat with her whilst she made our freshly squeezed orange juice, sitting by the pool and drinking these truly were the the best way to start the day.

The staff all helped my now fiance plan his propsal to me, with Joy and our holiday rep recommending romantic spots to go to, and Joy's father Dennis taxying us around that evening - they all knew it was going to happen, and managed to keep it a secret.

The villa is well situated very near to two tavernas - we ate out every night, but only tried one of the two close by, and it was very good. The swimming pool is immaculately clean, as is the whole area.

We will definitely be coming back here.

Loved this place, our apartment had a beautiful view both from the front door (out onto the mountains) and from the massive balcony (out onto the sea). The apartment was not fancy but was comfortable without being basic. All the kitchen facilities were good and if you did want to eat in, there were lots of items to prepare a sufficient meal with.
The taverna within walking distance was down a hill by the sea and whilst it is a steep walk back up the hill, it is not too difficult and provides you with lots of photo opportunities!
There were two other local tavernas that we frequented but were a car drive away which was the only downside as one of the couple could not drink.
On the whole, the location of the apartments are superb with the most amazing views and the grounds were really well kept.
Loved it!

Went here with my boyfriend last summer for a week in June. It was lovely from the start - relaxing, beautiful, quiet and peaceful. The service was excellent and the room very clean. You get your own little self catering villa and the views are amazing. Such a lovely pool area - it was quiet all day - great for relaxing with a book and looking out at the sea. It's really high on the hills overlooking the sea so it really is gorgeous. Steep hill down to the beach - very clean and nice restaurants down there - 5 minutes walk. You need a car really to explore.
