LUXURIOUS VILLA KEF. Experience the real Greece not tourist Greece.

Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Lixouri, Cephalonia, Ionian Islands
VILLA KEF is approved by THE GREEK TOURIST BOARD. This is a holiday home that we go to twice a year so it has to have all that we want and therefore should have all that visitors expect and more. Our caretakers are English. Weeks are getting booked. If your weeks are booked we do have property Father Teds on this website ....no pool but stunning location!

We suggest that you DO NOT rent VILLA KEF if:

2. If you want the noise of living near a popular beach or several tavernas.
3 If you DO NOT want the real Greek experience.
4. If you want to pay tourist rates rather than the locals rate for food and drink.
5. If you wish to use a waste bin for your toilet paper as is usual in Greece .
6. If you wish to see and hear the increasing number of aircraft arrivals into EFL.
7. If you don...

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!

We spent 3 fantastic weeks at this villa and it was one of the best holidays we have had. The villa itself is spacious, immaculately clean and is like a home-from-home. The kitchen is well equipped and the bbq was a bonus. Our boys were...More

About the neighbourhood
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...
