This villa is lovely and as other reviews say has everything you need for a great holiday. 2 cleans with linen change and clean towels was an added bonus. You do need a car for trips to skala and getting to the supermarket.The beach nearby is beautiful and so is skala.The welcome pack on arrival was greatly received and has everything you need until you can get to a supermarket. We loved the villa and kefalonia would love to return someday! Thank you Tony and Mandy for renting out your beautiful villa.
The booking was very smooth, Tony respinded quickly and he kindly sent the best directions from the airport ever! The villa is comfortable and very clean. Everything is easy to use, great to have a washing machine especially as our clothes dried in a couple of hours! The location is perfect. Its a very short drive to the small town of Skala where the is everything you could want but maintains its village feel. The beach which is literally a two minute drive or a short walk (if it had been cooler!) is perfect for families as its flat, warm and safe as its shallow for a good 50m out. The pool was lovely to have as the temperature hit the fourties on one day during the week. Aircon excellent. Nice to have a cleaner to change the linen after a few days. Be prepared for some wasps when eating outdoors, its common on the island. All in all would happily not bother coming home and just move in!! Buy icecream in the village, eat out at the wonderful restaurants and soak up the sunshine and sea.
Villa Eirene provided all three generations a fabulous week of relaxing and fun. The villa had internet but the teenagers spent very little time using as the pool provided more attractive entertainment. We were happy to while away the days dinning alfresco, competitive pool volleyball and soaking up the sun on the terrace. When we needed a change of scenery we would take the hire car which is essential to Skala for shopping, relaxing iced coffee and a swim in the sea. A fabulous place to eat and drink is Katelios, where you can choose from multiple restaurants next to the beach. The nearest beach is walkable if you like a steep descent and a challenging walk back. We found if you drove down to the beach continue to the end of road which became a beach track, the beach and swimming was our favourite.
Thank you Villa Eirene for a memorable holiday for all.
We walked into the Villa to be greeted by a lovely food parcel, coffee, sugar,bread ,cheese,milk,butter etc which was really welcomed after the airport run.The location is perfect for Skala ,Katelios, and Kaminia beach, lovely sandy beach for children.
The Villa was spacious, clean, dishwasher, washing machine and large american style fridge. Perfect for families, or groups of couples.
Air con in every room at no extra charge which was great.
This is a perfect villa with not a single fault, highly recommend and we will re-book with Tony, who was always contactable via email for any questions. If you love the Skala area this is the villa for you.
We booked this villa on the recommendation of a friend; boy do I owe him a big drink!
The villa itself is lovely, four big bedrooms and three bathrooms as described, but the best bit, sitting round the pool with the radio on soaking up the warmth of the Kefalonian sun. You can do that anywhere on the island but considering the villa is just 500m from the best beach on the island it's so peaceful and relaxing, all you can hear is the odd tinkle of goats bells in the distance and birds singing their hearts out.
Everything you need to make the holiday one to remember is supplied as well as a few extras that the owner threw in to make us feel at home.
There's a small but very friendly restaurant in the village, which is just a five minute walk from the villa. Perfect for a shandy or two.
For a bit more nightlife it's worth a trip into the town of Skala, it's about 5km away so a car or taxi is needed. I've seen a bus pass by but haven't worked out the times to use them. We did attempt the walk to Katelios which is about 3km away, certainly one way to keep fit but I think we let ourselves down again with another shandy or two
The owners are a couple called Mandy & Tony, just wanted to say a big thanks to you both. I hope we can book again next year
