Our stay at Villa Blue was a completely unforgettable week in time, that we will treasure the memories of for years to come. A restorative break from our busy and overloaded lives. Kefalonia is a breathtakingly beautiful island with a laidback lifestyle that is both calming and infectious.
Blue Villa is a stylish yet comfortable hideaway, that sits majestically on the upper tier of the hills. It is dominated by the uninterrupted, jaw-dropping beauty of its vast panoramic view that looks over to Ithaca. A view that once seen, is never forgotten. We adored the peaceful escapism that the villa offered, interrupted only by the magical tinkling of bells as the herd of isle goats made their way down the hill.
Gregory is the most fantastic host! From booking to vacating, he provides an informative, prompt and accessible point of friendly contact at all times. Yet with no complaints or needs left unfulfilled, he left us to enjoy our stay. His kind gesture to leave us a selection of grocery necessities was very much appreciated.
Blue Villa is located perfectly for exploring its surroundings. Our personal highlights include; laid-back waterside dining at picturesque Fiscardo Harbour and swimming days in the clear waters of the secluded bay of Emplisi. Our favourite eateries were Elli’s, Tassia and Apagio’s. Tselenti Bakery, Fiscardo is particularly good... as is the local Robola wine!! You MUST head to Myrtos beach... the dazzling white pebbles and exotic electric blue waters are mind-blowing! Combine it with a meander around the charming village of Assos.
Whether you choose to withdraw into the idyllic privacy and captivating views of the comfort of Blue Villa for your entire stay... or choose to explore the island for all it’s beauty and charm - both are superb choices!
We have experienced some beautiful places, with many more on our wish list... however Kefalonia will sit proudly among the best. We are saddened to leave, but recharged and inspired for life back home.
Don't go here - you will compare every holiday to it and the rest will disappoint! This place was truly special. The view...wow. We stared for hours every day and never got bored. Gregory was super and very friendly. The house was pretty and everything you need, to be honest we lived outdoors 90% of the time. Our kids loved it and we have a canvas of it in our lounge and still stare at that view. Fiskardo is a ten/ fifteen minute drive away plus another little town with shops and restaurants five/ ten minutes away. I just miss it. We went Aug/ Sep 2015 but doesn't go back on dates that far. Best holiday ever have ever had. Cannot recommend it enough. We hope to come back one day.
Yes the view is special. However the house itself is disappointing. When we arrived the house which "had been cleaned" was dirty (mouldy stained bed sheets and bath towels and ...) and after another clean was not much better. The house is small and contents and appliances very basic. The week before we stayed in a much better villa for less money.
We were familiar with Kefalonia, especially the Fiscardo area, and wished to come again, but our previous villa had not reappeared on the website. We had briefly visited Evrita before, finding it peaceful and interesting, Blue villa looked to satisfy our requirements. We were NOT disappointed ! Communication with the Owner, Gregory, was excellent and the villa was totally as described. Extremely comfortable in all areas, the villa was completely fitted and furnished for easy living and a relaxing holiday - the view over to Ithaca is outstanding ! The location is superb, being within easy reach by car to Fiscardo, Assos and all the little beaches and coves in the north of the island. The goats' bells provide musical entertainment in the evening, more is available in Fiscardo, a mere ten minute drive away !
