Well what a lovely relaxed holiday we had a Ideales Resort! Communication with Lila was 24/7 and very accommodating. The villa itself was clean and easy to maintain for the week as there is plenty of room. Views were spectacular, mountains and the sea! The pool was perfect all round. Sunbeds were great. Plenty of utensils along with hairdryer iron and board plus a safe. We stayed in the deluxe two bedroom. I’m interested to find out how the grand versions differ and have every intention of returning next year with friends. Surrounding area was great and you are just spoilt for choice with the beaches. We ate out every day and didn’t have one bad meal. Amazing! And how friendly the people were! Don’t think I’ll go anywhere else now ! Thank you Ideales Resort and thank you Kefalonia!

We have just come back from an amazing weeks holiday in Kefalonia. We stayed at one of the villas at Ideales Resort. I cannot recommend them enough. The villa was spacious, clean and beautiful. The pool was perfect. Lila was our point of contact and was exceptionally professional, helpful and always available if we needed any advise. I wouldn’t hesitate going back.

Our large family (7 of us) stayed at the Ideales Resort in July 2020. The villa, pool and facilities were first class. Lila and her team looked after us brilliantly well during our stay and even managed to bring over a birthday cake for my eldest daughters birthday and also some paperwork that i needed printing off .....all done at a safe distance as well. Kefalonia as an island is simply stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed travelling around the island and visiting the many beautiful towns......Asos is not to be missed and i'll remember our evening their for many years to come.

we have been holidaying in greece for approx 20 years and approx 30 holidays and have been to lots of areas.we have always been to apartments/hotels etc, and have never stayed in a villa until now .this was a 3 week holiday for us,the first week was in poros,an apartment we have stayed at previously, the 2nd was a villa in skala which was lovely, and the 3rd here at ideales in villa petalida.we thought the 1st villa was great but this was not a patch on ideales.we arrived mid afternoon to find keys in the door and a lovely welcoming pack.we knew if we were to come back to a villa it would be here(more on that later)the 12 villas are of such high quality,and are all built so each one has its own space and you are not overlooked by another villa.you have everything you need,a dishwasher,washing machine and all you need to cook indoors or out on the lovely barbecue(we did once with some lovely sea bass).their is a small supermarket, a 15 minute stroll away.and two tavernas a further 5 minute stroll after(veramente and gefiri)(rated 1 and 2 on tripadvisor)we went to number one veramente and had 6 fantastic meals here.the staff at ideales are like a big family, so friendly and helpful.the pool guy is around every day early maintaining the pool and general maintenance.lola is the manageress and is so helpful and is around the resort until approx 4pm.lila is based in athens and takes care of bookings,and she can also arrange taxis,hired cars,hairdresser,massage,pedicure/manicure,professional chef to cook in your villa,and even a bouzouki band for a special occasion, all very reasonably priced.regarding the manicure/pedicure i booked this for my wife and the lady was with her for 1 hour 45 minutes charged 45 euros and my wife said it was the best she had ever had,the lady also does massages and we are back in may 2020 and will book a massage as well as pedicure/manicure.ideales are big on recycling and a large bin is supplied for all your tins/paper/plastics etc, so good to see and very rare to see abroad.the tap water is also drinkable and is a big bonus if you do not rent a car( no carrying from shop) we were so impressed with ideales that we booked whilst there a week in may 2020 we emailed lila for a price in villa nautilos and booked right away.lolo came and collected a deposit for this and said the villa would be vacant tomorrow and asked if we would like to have a look around ,we did , the photos of petalida and nautilos do not do the villas justice ,seeing them inside is so much better.we have as soon as returning home booked 4 weeks at ideales in sep/oct 2020 1 week in villa mataki and 3 weeks in villa petalida.we cannot recommend this resort highly enough and we know we will be coming back for years to come.thanks once again to all at ideales and look forward to our holidays in 2020 and years to come.kind regards.
