PLACES TO VISIT
Drogati Caves
Fabulous cave system, once used by Maria Callas for a concert. A palace of stalactites and stalagmites

Melessani Lake
Be rowed around the underground lake in awe of your surroundings, and hear the fascinating story of how the water comes to be there.

Saint Gerasimos Monastery
Home to the remains of Saint Gerasimos, patron saint of Kefalonia. In the garden is the large plane tree that was planted by St Gerasimos in the 16th century. While inside the ornate church you can see his remains - after death he did not decompose, a feat that prompted his canonization. With church interior that is quite amazing. It is a working monastery, so all the usual rules about dressing modestly apply.

Myrtos Beach
One of the most stunning views of Kefalonia a must see if only for a photo shoot

Argostoli
The islands capital, the place for you if you enjoy people watching whilst enjoying a lovely meal in the evening. Great outdoor cafe society. Many shops, restaurants and tavernas.

Fiskardo
Picturesque harbour village, which survived the big earthquake of 1953.

Hire a boat
Why not spoil yourself with a touch of luxury on a skippered yacht charter or for the more independent hire a boat from resorts such as Katelios and Aghia Efemia (one of the prettiest villages on the island) to explore the coves and tiny beaches unreachable by car. There are also activities such as Sea Kayaking available for the more adventurous!

Wine
Greek wine? Try it at the Robola Wine Co-operative set in the beautiful Omala Valley (next door to St.Gerasimos Monastery) and have a very informative tour of the factory ….their wine tasting is very generous

Part of the charm of Kefalonia is to do nothing but relax and live on island time. Which is not to say that there is nothing to do on the island - watersports and sunbathing by fabulous turquoise seas are primary attractions

But if you can pull yourself away from the sand or surf then there are also archaeological ruins, monasteries, places of interest, myth and legend and pretty seaside villages

And not forgetting that there are also daily ferries from Kefalonia to Athens, Lefkada, Ithaca, Zakinthos, Patra, and Kallini

Stayed Saturday 19 July 2014 with Family
We had a fantastic two weeks at Villa Diana. It was very clean and the villa was cleaned twice a week. The local housekeeper made us very welcome. The pool is a great size and our children...aged 6 and 4...just loved it. The villa has a very good feel to it and it has been well thought out...with an outside fridge for your convenience. There is also an outside darts board and plenty of toys by the pool. The local tavernas were great and the beaches had something for everyone. The children loved watching the sheep being herded once a day down a nearby lane. We will definitely recommend this villa to others and will visit it again if we decide to go back to Kefalonia. We can also recommend Rory the chef....he was fab and very knowledgeable about the area too. I cant recommend him enough. Finally, the owners were so helpful beforehand offering some excellent information and links to websites. Although there is no sea view, you have a lovely view of the mountains and it is very peaceful and sooo relaxing. The sea is just 5 mins away.....It is only a 15 min drive to the capital to pick up cash, see the turtles and to do a spot of shopping. You will not be disappointed if you book this!

Have just spent a glorious week at villa Diana with kids and grandkids, ten in all. Beautifully appointed villa with great pool, offering us all the options for accommodation we required. Clive and Lyn very friendly and useful! Highly recommended are the walkable taverna Elionas (Greek night on Saturdays late but great!) and beaches at St Thomas and Trapezaki. We all had a great time and hope to return in the future. Many thanks...!

villa diana is set in a quit area with overwhelming views the pool was cleaned everyday. jo anne and ken who look after the property were so freindly and helpful. we would recommend this very highly we had our best holiday ever. spartia beach was clean and perfect for snorkeling.we have every intention of returning next year.enastron resteraunt is the place to go to sample really nice greek food.
Review #8677352 "Fun in the sun" Ill start with the villa. Its awesome. Looks and feels right at home in the island countryside. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and big pluses go to the pool and terraces. The neighbors, Tim and Joy have been both fun and helpful. Kefalonia is beautiful, especially in June, and we were fortunate to see most of its attractions. We (a group of 8) gladly recommend the villa and the island. Thanks again Sharon.
Hi Sharon & Ionian Weddings We all found the Villa to be a very suitable location for a wedding venue. There was ample space & the location is truly beautiful. There did not appear to be any issues with the catering or the entertainment & we had both Greek Band & Greek Dancers, there was plenty of space. We had a party of 20 on the wedding day & have had no complaints, the wedding ran very smoothly & I can comment as the Bride that we had a the best day, it exceeded all our expectations! Everyone of our guests said this was the best wedding they had attended & the venue was beautiful, I cant say anything better than that. In our opinion this should be listed as an appropriate wedding venue, the balcony is where we had our ceremony & comfortably sat 20 guests & ceremony table, celebrant, bride & groom. I havent got round to thanking\updating anyone yet including the hairdresser & makeup artists & Ionian wedding planner Dimitra who also did a fantastic job & contributed to an altogether amazing issue free day. In our opinion there would be nothing required to improve this Villa, in fact the pictures on Villa Renters website do not do this villa justice as it looks much more majestic as you approach from the gates. Maybe additional images could be taken. Car hire is necessary in this area but that was well documented & all our requirements were catered for, Sharon included lots of additional information regarding places to visit, eat, car hire etc. Thanks once again to Ionian Weddings, Dimitra & Sharon Williams - Venue Villa Diana Keramies, Kefalonia for a truly wonderful day & happy memories.
Hi Sharon and Mike Just wanted to say that we had an absolutly fantastic holiday at "Villa Diana". Thankyou so much for all your help regarding booking the villa and with all our questions we bombarded you with. Your villa is beautiful, very well set out and furnished well, plenty of equipment and well the pool made our holiday for all of us I think. We all loved the island as well and we are sure some or all of us will go back sometime, still loads to explore although we did travel to a lot of it. My grandchildren loved watching the goats coming down from the fields and running along the road, did get a few in the garden one night!! We would certainly recommend your villa to anyone who was visiting Kephalonia, and those that have seen some of our photos all say it looks fantastic, and I say yes it was! Well once again, thankyou for letting us hire your villa, and if we ever go back we will see if it is available again. Marian and Dave Reed and family

Simply lovely villa with excellent facilities and furnishings. Quiet location but without my sons Tom-Tom I would have been utterly confused by the maze of little roads all around the local villages. We all (7 of us) had a marvellous time, helped by glorious weather. Excellent Taverna Elionas 10 minutes walk away.

The villa and pool were absolutely lovely and we had plenty of communal space to luxuriate in. The location was ideal, with the airport, great beaches and reasonably priced tavernas close by. Clive kept the pool beautiful and Lynne not only looked after the indoors but provided invaluable local information. We all had a fabulous time! p.s. Find the hand drawn map on the first day and ignore the first line of the directions about turning left out of the airport, it just means go up the hill.
9 of the Barton family stayed at this wonderful villa it was very clean the pool was excellent and cleaned every other day. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already at the villa. The Couple whom look after the villa on a day to basis are very helpful but leave you alone enough to enjoy the privacy that you are looking for with a villa.My family and I will be back to this great place. We had a mix up with our flights due to the ash cloud and the owners were very accomodating with us. If you are fortunate enough to be booking this villa, do not hesitate its wondeful."
Villa Diana quite simply has everything you could possibly want & need to make your holiday in Kefalonia as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Ken & JoAnne look after the villa exceptionally well. The rooms are spacious and well laid out and are quickley cooled by the villas air conditioning units. The showers are fantastic which is a first for us in beautiful Kefalonia!!.... The kitchen has all-mod-cons making cooking & cleaning for the family very easy and hassle free. We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Villa Diana and would recommend it without hesitation.

Our 2 week stay at villa diana proved completely delightful. Caretakers Ken and JoAnn welcomed us warmly, offered helpful hints regarding local points of interest, and met our every need, all without being intrusive. The immaculate and spacious villa boasts beauty, comfort and style, with a huge balcony, greatroom, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a full kitchen and even a front load washer. Beer, wine, coffee, tea, a cake, sugar and seasonings were all close at hand. The immediate surroundings feature lush pastoral beauty of vinyards, olive groves, songbirds and flocks of sheep. We felt secure at all hours. Car rental is a good idea, (but I would not recommend Holiday autos that this site will direct you to).
