We stayed at the villa Utopia for two weeks, five of us, myself, husband and our three offspring (21, 18 and 8). It met the criteria for all of us and our varying needs! The views are breathtaking, the villa, wonderful contemporary living and the pool a good generous size, with the spa as an extra bonus! Sami was a wonderful place to spend time, with a great harbour, restaurants and shops. A good location to see the rest of the island too. The local beach, Anti Samos was our favourite, good for all ages and a beautiful bay. Sophia and her family looked after us perfectly and the locals are very friendly. The villa also has a great BBQ area if you fancy eating in, which we also did, as there are good butchers in Sami. I cannot recommend the Villa highly enough for its location, cleanliness, attention to detail and home from home living, we will be back!!
We had the pleasure of being the very first guests to stay in the Villa Utopia! What can I say?.....from viewing the website it was clear that the views were going to be spectacular but until you are actually there and seeing it in the flesh, only then can it truly take your breath away! A beautiful location, stunning views down to the village of Sami and in an ideal spot to make the most of the Kefalonian sunshine all day! Sunbathers haven!
We spent the first of our two weeks in Kefalonia in Utopia and we had a number of plans to visit Myrtos beach, Fiskardo and Assos....however, we barely ventured away from the privacy of the villa. It was the perfect spot to kick back, relax and unwind after what had been a hectic time both domestically and with work recently. We did take an afternoon to visit Melissani Caves which is worth a look if the weather turns or if you want some time out of the sunshine. It doesn't take more than an hour in total to head there, tour and come back.
In the evenings I can highly recommend the beautiful Il Familia restaurant in Sami and the Karavomilos Tavern in Karavomilos (surprisingly!).....beautiful calamari and local dishes!
I truly hope that we will return at some stage in the near future. It was a great villa at a very reasonable price......and coming from someone who sells luxury villa and ski holidays for a living, this is definitely worth the investment!
