“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

This is such a special villa in what must be an unrivalled position on the island. The setting of the villa and the views from inside and out are breathtaking. It feels private and secluded and yet you are so near the sea, a short walk away down through the garden.
The children loved diving off the rocks and it was fantastic having use of the kayaks with several bays in the vicinity to kayak to. The table tennis table was a big hit too and you can slide the window right back for that fabulous view.
You can walk or swim to the sandy bay of St Thomas where there are a couple of tavernas (the first one you come to does lovely snacks for lunch).
The barbecue on the terrace makes cooking a delight, there are several balconies/ terraces to sit and enjoy the peace and everything inside the villa was really well equipped.
Spiro and his family are so welcoming and his Dad produces the most delicious jam and olive oil.
I really could not fault this place!

“Best Location on Kefalonia”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Positioned in an ideal spot on the beautiful Ionian Coast this Villa is pure luxury. Superb cleanliness, Amazing views from the rooms is the best place to spend holidays with family. Our family of six (3 couples) spent all week in September without going anywhere else, because everything was there what we needed. Thanks to the owner - Spyros for great holidays.

“perfect!!!”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

After 30 odd hours of travel, with four young, tired children it was all worth it when our host, Spyros, opened the front door of the villa and we were faced with those magical views! The reality cannot possibly be depicted in the photos...the villas' location is truly amazing! Breathtaking views, walking distance to the beach and a couple of taverns and extremely peaceful! Swimming in the cove directly in front of the villa is an experience I will never forget...kayaking in the sea in front of the villa is an experience all four of my children will never forget! The villa is stocked with everything...inside and out. There wasn't one thing I needed that wasn't provided...Spyros was extremely hospitable, helpful and accessible. We also had the pleasure of meeting his lovely wife, Evi, and his daughters. The only negative (for me who gets quite anxious in the car)was driving to and from the villa each day. It was a little difficult as the roads are very narrow and the overgrown trees in the passing were a nuisance...but then again we had a 7-seater to accommodate our large family and the road may not necessarily be a problem with a smaller car. Also, all the roads in Kefalonia are narrow so this isn't specific to the villa and something you must be prepared for. I can keep writing about our wonderful experiences staying in this villa but one word can easily sum it all up...PERFECT!!! Thank you Spyros for making our family's first trip to Kefalonia so special and when we return again, there is obviously only one place we will choose....this time for much longer!

“Stunning Villa with stunning views”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our families spent 2 glorious weeks at Villa Grand Avali. We was warmly welcomed by Spyros and his mother, Aspasia who kindly gave us a welcome gift to get us started on our holiday. The villa was exceptionally clean, comfortably furnished and big enough for a large family. The views were spectacular and the grounds are well maintained. There is no need for a pool as you have the crystal clear sea right on your doorstep. There are lots of activities to do at the villa such as snorkelling, kayaking, swimming, ping pong, badminton and more! We did hire a vehicle to travel around the beautiful island and thank Aspasia for the many tips she gave us as we visited some more beautiful beaches. We spent most evenings on the balcony enjoying a lovely meal that we cooked on the bbq that was there. This was defiantly the best villa we have ever stayed in and would return again.

“Fabulous house with stunning views and turquoise cove for idyllic swimming.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The photographs advertising this delightful property do not in anyway do it justice. We were totally 'wowed' on arrival. This is an amazing house with incredible views and sits right above it's very own and utterly beautiful turquoise cove.
The house is superbly appointed and the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely. The enormous terrace looking down onto the Sea is the real selling point with great furniture for relaxation and eating plus a great BBQ area.
The property is huge and we had 9 staying very comfortably and the boys and girls loved the table tennis and use of all the kayaks that Spyros provides.
From Avali we were able to find many other great beaches but to be honest we loved our own beach the best and you could just be as happy staying put if you are not the adventurous type.
We thank Spyros for his exceptional kindness, attention to detail and nothing was ever too much trouble. We hope to return one day.
