Villa Kathleen is in the ideal location for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle & bustle of mass tourism.
The natural beauty of the countryside of Kaminia offers interesting walks on quiet country lanes. With an olive tree never more than 10 metres away, the tranquil surrounds offer the perfect relaxing holiday.
The villa offers privacy within it's stone walled grounds.
Entrance gates lead to the private parking area and the paved pathways lead off to the large private pool, the shade of the many olive trees within the garden and the barbeque area.
The stone construction that surrounds the house keeps the indoors cool but for those extra warm days, air conditioning is always available.
The external veranda's and balconies make an excellent place to read, dine or sunbathe.
A welcome pack is provided as standard for all guests containing the essentials to see you through your arrival day. Local mini markets provide groceries while the supermarket LIDL can be found on route from the airport.
Fresh bed linen and towels are provided at the start of each booking.
The upper floor has two bedrooms - one twin and one double. There is and upstairs bathroom.
The ground floor is open plan with a kitchen, dining and sitting area with two pull out sofa beds.
There is also a downstairs toilet.
The villa has it's own washing machine.
The kitchen area is equipped with an oven/grill, hob, fridge freezer, cutlery, crockery, etc.
Dining out costs on the island are very reasonable but should you choose to cook at the villa, the poolside barbeque offers the ideal spot to watch the sunset.
We had a lovely 2 weeks at Villa Kathleen, such a peaceful location, gorgeous gardens and pool. Villa has everything that you could need and is spacious and comfortable. Perfect for a family holiday.

We found Villa Kathleen more than met our expectations. The photos on the website definately do not do the property justice. The welcome pack was gratefully received and much appreciated. We could not find any fault with the villa at all. The setting was excellent and all you could want for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The children loved the pool and there was plenty of room outside the villa to play. We suggest that you do need a car in order to get around and see the island. Grocery shopping was best done at the Lidl supermarket 30 minutes drive away. The cockerel might wake you on a morning but this is nothing in such a wonderful setting. If walking on an evening a torch is required as once away from the main road there are is no lighting.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and would go back again.

Villa Kathleen exceeded our expectations as we arrived, and after the hassle of flying with a one year old, the welcome pack of essentials (beer, wine water and teabags etc.) was very welcome indeed. It is a far better looking villa than the website photos suggest, indeed people would often go out of their way and stop by just to see/photograph it.
Set in an “out of the way” but not remote location, I would strongly recommend hiring a car while staying here. It nestles in the well established olive groves to the West of Lithicia, the villa is a recent construction with a traditional Zante (stone) finish. It has a number of balconies and terraces with excellent views of the surrounding location, a large garden and we certainly enjoyed the well maintained pool. Internally the villa is everything we hoped for, clean modern and spacious with all the appliances required.
As this is Greece “peaceful” is a relative term (goats, chickens etc. inhabit the surrounding groves) but settling down with local wine and beer on the front balcony in the early evening is a joy to experience, and later with the surrounding lights on the villa becomes the stuff dreams are made of.
We believed Villa Kathleen was very good value for money, and would certainly recommend it to friends who love Greece, the one reservation I have is that it raises the expectation for all future holidays in Greece to a very high level.
We already have fond memories of our holiday at Villa Kathleen.
The villa is well equipped and well positioned for those that want to explore the island, and to retire to the peace and tranquility of your own surroundings. A car is essential.
The pool is a good size and kept very clean.
I would highly recommend as a good all round quiet family holiday destination, and would hope to return in the future.
This villa was outstanding.
My partner and i with my two sons were so excited about our holiday here. After seeing the pictures on line.
We did not expect what was at the end of this dirt track we turned into.
It was amazing. We just dumped our cases at the door and jumped in the beautiful pool. We were in there untill 6pm from 12:30 when we arrived. Then cooked some meat on the bbq we bought from Lidle on way to villa.
The setting is beautiful the locals very friendly.
You must hire a car when your here its so much easier as the road in is a bit uneven under foot in the dark. WE will be back infact im looking at dates and prices right now.

Noel and Kate Fegan, Ireland - Villa Kathleen is located in a very picturesque setting within easy access of all local amenities and restaurants. The accommodation is excellent, with a large pool and garden, giving plenty of privacy, ideal for a fun and relaxing family holiday. It's only 10 minutes from the airport and we had no problem finding the villa, as driving on the island is quite easy.
From July 06..."The e-mail dealings with yourself were very good and helped make it feel that we were renting off a friend. On the whole it is difficult to find fault, it's a lovely house and island and was the best summer holiday we have had. I would recommend it to any one."
