“Good Villa, Good Location.”

We really enjoyed out stay at Villa Dimitra. The owners Stacey and Tassos were very welcoming. The addition of a hire car for the duration was great.

The villa is well equipped with all we needed, including relaible wi-fi. The pool is a good size, with a shallow end for the kids. No english speaking tv channels but this didn't bother us as we don't want to watch tv while on holiday. We checked news using the wi-fi. Beds were the hardest I've slept on but may be this is common in Greece.

The location of the villa is great. Easy to get to the south of the island (25 minutes), Argostilli (25 minutes) and across to Sami (1 hour) on the east side. We wanted to go to the north of the island but were warned about road repairs causing disruption. I think it would normally have taken about 1 hour 30 mins to get to the north.

Nearest beach is Trapezaki which was less than 5 minutes by car. A small sandy beach which by Kefalonian standards is a little crowded. Great restaurant next to the beach called Denis. We ate there twice and the food was amazing. If you want a bigger beach then Lourdata is a 5 to 10 minute drive. This beach has a number of restaurants and bars. Also possible to walk to other beaches from here which are practically deserted, even in July.

We only had one issue with the villa. The freezer didn't work very well. It was unable to freeze ice cream despite us trying the maximum setting. Other food seemed to freeze, although it did make us think twice about buying anything frozen. We informed Stacey a few days into the holiday so hopefully this will be fixed for future guests. This issue certainly didn't spoil out holiday.

One piece of advice. On our first night there were lots of cats hanging around the patio/pool area when we were about to eat. They were more than likely wild. We don't like cats so this was a concern, however we chased them away and over the next couple of days their numbers reduced. They soon released they were not going to get fed. After this we saw the odd cat every few days. If you like cats then feed them and they will come back everyday and probably bring their mates.

In summary a good villa which I would recommend, great location and great island.

“Fabulous Villa”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed 2 adults, 3 children, in early April for one week. We had the most amazing time, Stacey & Tassos could not do enough for us. Tassos picked us up from the airport and took us back at the end of our stay, and Stacey brought us fresh eggs and Olive Oil in the week
The Villa was perfect, it had everything we could have needed, it was really handy that it had speedy wi-fi too, as was having a car included with the Villa for the week. The sun shone and we were close to beautiful beaches which we had to ourselves every day. We can't wait to return again next year, thank you Stacey & Tassos.
