We stayed for a week at Garden Villas but wish it had been longer! The villa was spotlessly clean and really nicely presented. The outdoor space was absolutely brilliant. Location was one of our favourite on the island and was a brilliant base to explore from. Owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Would absolutely recommend to anyone thinking of visiting!

“Beautiful villas, perfect for a relaxing holiday”

Garden villas are exceptional for Greece, the furnishings and facilities are excellent. Stavros cares very much that you have a lovely time and has been so helpful booking a taxi from the airport, even booking our ferry to Lefkas for us. There is always some goodies to welcome you so you dont have to rush out shopping and everything you need is provided. The cleaner pops in every day to empty the bins , make the beds etc which is unusual for a villa holiday. The pool is lovely, never busy as most people go out in the day and the views from the pool and the villas are beautiful. I would say that the pictures on the website do not do the villas justice. There are many repeat guests stay here which speaks volumes. The resort itself is a quiet fishing village, enough buzz in the evenings in the restaurants for us but not for you if you like partying. There are a few supermarkets in the village and a couple of butchers. You may not notice them at first as the meat is not very visible but they are just past Stavros jewellry shop and if you can communicate what you want are great value and much cheaper than the supermarkets. The best meal we had was also just past the jewellry shop, very busy with locals which is always a good sign.

“Independent villas with hotel service”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

When my wife and I arrived at our villa we were delighted with what we had booked. Everything was good quality, inside and out. It was nice to have our own private section of garden, and the shaded good sized downstairs balcony if it got too hot. Lovely view from the villa, as can be seen from the website. Stavros, the owner, was there every morning to clean the pool out, and always welcomed a chat. Amazingly, the villas were cleaned every day, with the bedding changed what seemed like every third day, and the towels appeared to be changed at least every other day. We certainly did not expect that.
This was our first time in Kefalonia. If you are looking for self catering accommodation in Aghia Efemia then Garden Villas should be at the top of your list.

My husband and I spent a week in the Garden Villas - spotlessly clean - cleaner came in every day. Stavros the owner was very friendly and very helpful.
Villa is perfectly situated with amazing views and very spacious and only a very short walk to the bars and restaurants.
Will definitely return to Kefalonia and stay in the Garden Villas.
Kefalonia itself is a very clean place and very green, they call it the green Greek Island ..

“Best place in CEPHALONIA”

This was one of the best places ever! Villa was spot on. Stavros the owner was so helpful and friendly , all the restuarants in the area were great with such friendly people. Very peaceful.
Cleaner comes in every day , not usual for a rented villa , and she did a great job.
Could not fault this holiday....apart from Thomson losing my suitcase out of Gatwick....2 days with nothing was not much fun for the start of your holiday. But Stavros was so helpful and my suitcase arrived in the villa 2 days later...what a start he is ...thank you Stavros .
