If you wish to see and hear the increasing number of aircraft arrivals into EFL. 7. If you don't wish to be within a very short drive of several beautiful beaches including Petani voted the best beach on a YouTube video. 8. If you want to rent somewhere where you are NOT within easy reach of the two main towns should you need something a bit different. 9.If you do not want an elevated view over a village and the coast with twinkling lights at night and mostly silence. 10. If you wish to share a swimming pool and not have automatic pool lights allowing late swims. 11. If you do not wish to be on the edge of a historical village with facilities. 13. If you do not want any help or suggestions as to how to make the most of your holiday together with a quality map. 14.If you wish to rent a property that isn't licensed and you could lose your holiday if the authorities clamp down on the owner. 15. If you want to take notice of many poor recommendations as to where to stay in Kefalonia on social media! Even though there are more like these, you get the idea as to why we are different. We chose the location for the villa by purchasing the land exactly where we wanted it. We own the land to the side and down to the road and there is a sea view as far as Zakynthos. Behind the villa there is a rocky hill. The road is very quiet (30 vehicles an hour counted at busy commuting times and a temporary diversion past the villa) but situated on the edge of the largest village on the Paliki Peninsula with the associated facilities including a great bar and taverna as well as two village shops. This villa is truly more luxurious than our bungalow in the UK and the internet is faster! There is ample parking with spacious grounds. There are olive trees, lemon trees and shaded areas. You overlook the village rather than you being overlooked. For the young and old there is a water park that is a very short drive away. The pool is of course for you alone and the pool lights come on automatically creating a lovely ambiance on warm summer evenings and of course this also allows you to swim well into the evening. You have the twinkling lights from the village below when looking out across to the sea. To accompany all this there is a luxury 5 burner gas BBQ with a vine covered pergola. The village facilities can provide most essentials that you might need including freshly made pizza if you do not wish to BBQ. As well as offering good value we also assist your stay with suggestion for beaches, tavernas, places to visit, as well as providing a good quality map of the island ahead of your visit when you book. With this help you can eat in some really good tavernas for as little as £10 per person inclusive of food and wine! We can also help you with car hire and we pass the full booking discount that we can get onto you the visitor. We are told by the locals that you will not find another villa offering what VILLA KEF provides in the area. WE HAVE UK TYPE DRAINAGE AND YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PLACE TOILET PAPER IN BINS!

Interaction with guests
Our pool and villa ladies are contactable. We aim to provide as much information as you require to make your holiday one of the best ever. This is why we post you a map ahead of your visit. We can give information on beaches, tavernas, bars, places to visit and shopping. We hold a provisional booking whilst you locate flights and even help you with this if required. In 2016 we had a visually impaired couple stay and we could even cater for their requirements!

About the neighborhood
HAVDATA is the largest village on the PALIKI with a special village status. There are many holiday homes here mainly owned by Greek people from Athens. VILLA KEF is extremely well situated being right on the edge of the village. There are no properties behind VILLA KEF and the only local people live below the villa (as the land falls away towards the sea) on the other side of a very minor road that is beyond a small field also belonging to VILLA KEF. Hence the villa is well set back in spacious grounds. There are masses of things to see and do on this island, but at the same time, if you just wish sit around the pool with a drink cooling down occasionally with a quick dip at a villa situated in a typical Greek village you can do so at VILLA KEF. If you require any shops, a huge choice o...
How to get there
You can fly direct to KEFALONIA from most major airports from May until October these days and earlier with a few or go via Athens any time of year. Car hire is available from the airport. By road and sea there are connections from Italian Ports via the Greek Mainland all year. Flights to Preveza or Zakynthos are also possible with ferry crossings to Kefalonia as well as a air shuttle service. On arrival by plane at Argostoli if you choose to drive around the bay there are two lovely tavernas at FARSA and stopping at one of these is a really great way to start your holiday.
