Villa overview - owner's description

Between the misty mountains and breathtaking coastline of the island of Kefalonia stands Villa Odysseus. As in Greek myth, Odysseus is brilliant and versatile. Bring your group of 4 guests and lounge poolside with expansive views of the Ionian Sea, or take a short drive to explore the shops, eateries and taverns of the Village of Lourdas.

There’s a reason our guests return year after year. Our family-owned villas have been meticulously maintained and cared for, and we live close by. If you are traveling with a larger group, we have a nearly identical villa for rent next door on the same secluded 4 acres. Rent both to sleep 8 adults and share a holiday to remember.

High Above the Sea

Our cliffside location offers uninterrupted panoramic views of the blue horizon, where the hillside terrain creates a private retreat. Located at the end of a secluded road, you won’t hear any traffic here...just ocean breezes.

Spend a scenic afternoon renting a small boat and travel to the serene Lefka Beach, located just under your cliff-side villa. Explore the dazzling sea caves via kayak, or take a short drive to sunbathe on one of the most famous beaches on the island, Lourdas Beach. A great sandy beach for families, Lourdas features boat and canoe rentals, jet ski excursions, and more. Drive just two miles and swim in the sparkling waters of Koroni Beach.

Inside the Villa

Unwind in a dreamy master bedroom that includes a double-bed and an en-suite bathroom with hydro-massage shower. Guests will be equally comfortable in the luminous 2nd bedroom, which has 2 twin-sized beds. From either bedroom, step out onto a private sunny balcony and enjoy the ocean view. Post-beach clean-up is simple with a 2nd full bathroom with a jetted tub and a downstairs washing machine.

Homemade pottery and paintings, the work of a dear friend, adorn the walls in the cozy living room, where you can gather with loved ones. The charming and functional kitchen provides all the essentials for a seaside dinner. Or fire up the BBQ grill by the pool. Enjoy at the wood dining table inside, then pour a glass of local wine to savor on the breezy veranda.

Unparalleled Location

A picturesque setting in a private, traffic-free location makes our villa an ideal spot for quiet, romantic getaways and spending time with loved ones.

Though Kefalonia is gorgeous year-round, our favorite time of the year on the island is May or September, when the ocean breezes are calm and the temperature is just right. August is another lovely time to visit: take-in the gorgeous full, blue moon through your bedroom windows.

Kefalonia offers limestone coves, sandy beaches and a rich heritage. A 10-minute drive takes you into the Village of Lourdas, and it’s 15-miles to Argostoli, the bustling capital. Delicious food is around every corner and wineries are abundant, as well. Hike, rent a bike or jeep, and drive into the mountains to explore the rare black fir trees and wild horses of the forest. Come find your paradise on Kefalonia!

Our Service

Taking good care of our guests is our primary goal, and we personally manage our two villas to an exceptional standard. Twice a week, while you are out exploring, we will change the linens and clean the villa for you.

We always welcome our guests at the airport and will provide any recommendations or assistance you need to be completely comfortable here. Early check-ins and late check-outs are available upon request.

When you arrive you will find a welcome pack with pantry items like a bottle of local wine, fresh seasonal fruits, milk, coffee, sugar, bread, local cheeses, refreshments, beers and more, plus amenities like soaps, shower gel, shampoo, body lotion, bath salts, and a sewing kit.

Villa Odysseus can accommodate up to 4 adults and a baby up to 2 years old in a baby cot.

The spacious private pool area features umbrellas and wooden deck chairs for sunbathing and a shower. The pool itself (4 x 7 m and max depth 1.70 m) is ecological and water overflowing.

All rooms feature air conditioning and luxury furnishings. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also provided.

No security deposit – we trust our guests!

If you want a beautiful villa in a breathtaking setting then look no further than this one. It has everything you could wish for. The villa is absolutely immaculate and has all facilities you would need, like washing machine and dishwasher and a fully functioning kitchen. Outside the pool is kept in perfect condition with sun beds and umbrellas, making it such a lovely place to chill in. The view from the villa is breathtaking, straight across the perfect blue sea. The villa owner Paraskevas is on hand and he genuinely wants to see you have the perfect holiday without intruding. He is such a friendly host.

Immaculate villa, extremely clean and well equipped. Owner lives nearby and is very helpful and keeps the villa and pool spotless. Amazing views both to the sea and the mountains. Would thoroughly recommend the villa for families (we have 2 children aged 10 and 7).

If you are planning to spend a few days in Kefalonia, this is absolutely the best choice you should do. The landlord and his family. By now, it was about 20 years that we spent our holyday around the Greek Islands and we never have receveid a similar retreat. Polite, extremely helpful, exquisite person, be able to feel you like a member of his family and able to communicate you the real Kefalonian smell. Yes, becouse if you choose the Greece for your journey it is higly raccomended appreciate and love not only the sea and the nature but also the greek people. Having said that, here, you will never see a leaf on the pool and in the house too. The wiew is simply memorable and unforgettable as same as the nature around the properties.

We had a very relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa and in a very peaceful location. The villa is very well equipped, immaculate and has amazing views. The owner is a wonderful host and goes out of his way to ensure you have everything you need. Really do recommend this villa and we will definitely be going back.

Perfect Grecian Holiday Villa. What a wonderful place! My family and I have just had the most amazing holiday on Cefalonia, staying in Villa Odysseus. Mr Paraskevas Chionis was a most delightful host from moment I booked, right up until we returned home. His communication and helpfulness was first rate, and his attention to detail brilliant. Villa Odysseus sits upon a cliff above the Ionian Sea in a peaceful part of the island, with the beautiful water stretching away towards Zante in the front, and Mount Ainos rising up behind. The sunsets were wonderful from the terrace! The pool was great, and we couldn’t get the children out of it! The villa itself is beautifully appointed, with all the facilities and mod cons you could need. Frequent cleaning and tidying was much appreciated. A car is needed to get around, and the Villa is well situated to visit the many gorgeous beaches or to get to any part of the Island. So, please do not hesitate to stay here – it really is marvellous!

Die Villa Odysseus lässt keine Wünsche offen: in absolut ruhiger Lage zwischen dem Ainos-Gebige und der dramatischen Steilküste bietet sie den Luxus einer perfekten und ausgesprochen stilvollen Ausstattung. Der Garten ist eine duftende Wohlfühloase mit berauschendem Blick auf Meer und Berge. Wir waren sehr berührt von der leisen Aufmerksamkeit des Vermieters, der jeden Urlaubstag zu einem besonderen werden ließ.

E' la prima volta che mi capita di trovare la realtà molto più bella di quanto non me lo sia immaginata guardando le foto. Villa Odysseus è la più bella casa che io abbia mai avuto in affitto per le vacanze. La cura dei particolari fanno di questa residenza una bomboniera dove sentirsi cullati e coccolati. Tutto è più che perfetto dalla cucina sapientemente arredata con ogni elettrodomestico, alle camere da letto corredate da lenzuola in raso di cotone, alle spugne da bagno di ottima qualità. La piscina è molto ben tenuta e pulitissima. Forse è la più bella residenza di tutta Cefalonia. La vista dalla scogliera è impagabile e il luogo è perfetto per raggiungere tutte le più belle spiagge del sud dell'isola. La capitale è un tiro di schioppo. Per chi desidera una vacanza rilassante nel silenzio e nella tranquillità della natura questa è la residenza ideale. Le parole non sono sufficienti per descrivere la bellezza di villa Odysseus. Se avete intenzione di fermarvi a Cefalonia, ascoltate il mio consiglio: soggiornate a villa Odysseus. Un ringraziamento particolare a padrone di casa che è di una gentilezza senza pari.

Private Owner From Kefalonia, Greece Member since Nov 2015

Just a few years ago, my family and I, decided to build this villa on this lovely spot.
We used to come to this land, gazing at the view, as it belonged to my father and my grandfather.
Over the past few years that we’ve been renting this villa, we’ve met exciting people and made great friends.
We personally manage this property putting into it a lot of effort and our passion.
We are only genuine hosts, trying to share with our guests, our love for this place and the island, offering them everything we would like to have, in a home away from home.
