Had a lovely relaxed holiday in this villa ...swam sunbathed ...talked laughed and read .Wonderful views ...hired a car but used a local taxi when we went out for dinner with drinks .We barbecued and enjoyed every minute .Patrick gave me instructions as to how to get to a large supermarket en route and we used the little ones in Skala and another village beginning with K whose name escapes me .We went to Mounda beach ( the naturist bit ) had dinner at beachside restaurants .Took a boat trip to Fiskardo which was lovely .A wonderful holiday .

“Just the holiday we wanted!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

This was our first holiday without the kids and dogs - just the two of us - and we wanted somewhere we could relax completely without unwanted distractions or interruptions. Villa Athena delivered exactly this and gave us everything we did want - magnificent views, a superb pool, peace and quiet.
The location is secluded enough for complete privacy yet close enough to beaches, tavernas and shops to be practical. You will need to hire a car, which we were told when we booked, as you will want to explore the wonderful island of Kefalonia.
The owners, Patrick and Emanuelle who live in another of the four villas on the site, are very helpful and friendly without being intrusive.
This is the first holiday we have had where we both said we would love to go back again.
If, like us, you don't want all inclusive, large hotel holidays with lots of other people, this is perfect..
But, be aware, make sure you have plenty of insect repellent and bite remedies if you go at the height of the season . . . but don't let the midges put you off!

“Only one word - PARADISE”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My best holiday!
I have been in many places all over the world for holiday (Spain – Barcelona and beaches around, Turkey – Kusadasi, Marmaris, Antalia, Didim, Egypt - Hurgada, All Bulgarian Black see, Greece – Halkidiki near Thessaloniki, Italy – Lido di Jesolo, Izrael – Tel Aviv, Dubai, Abu Dhabi …)

But … the holiday in villa Athena was the best!

The villa is the real paradise. Everything is perfect as a description. Good location - close to Skala and Katelios – only 3-5 km. The best taverns in Greece. Excellent private pool. Very quiet and peaceful place. The owner - Patrick is very friendly and helpful.
Only one word - PARADISE. ...
And one question – Patrick, why do you take money for paradise? By the religion, I know the paradise is free of charge.
