Villa overview - owner's description

Set in the hillside amongst olive groves, this tranquil villa is located on the island's south coast between Lourdas and Katelios. Breath-taking sea views from the balcony, terrace and swimming pool.

Welcome to Villa Penelope: a cliff-side hideaway perched over the sparkling Ionian Sea in Kefalonia. With lush mountains all around, and the expansive Ketalonia coastline ahead, this is an ideal location for a romantic getaway or trip with loved ones. Take a dip in the pristine and private pool, then sip a drink on the sunny veranda while dinner cooks on the BBQ grill.

Located on a secluded enclave of 4 acres, both villas on the property can be rented together for larger groups of up to 8 guests. We take pride in our family-owned villas, which have been meticulously maintained and cared for. We live close by and are on-hand for any assistance...or dinner recommendations.

Picturesque Natural Beauty

Take your place on the sea-view hillside, a peaceful and private location to unwind. Close your eyes, feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and breathe in the sea air.

Then explore the indigenous terrain of the Grecian island. Rent a jeep to see the rugged black fir forests and the wild horses that call these mountains home. Or rent a boat or kayak to see the gleaming sea caves, close-by Lefka Beach located just under your cliff-side villa, or the famous golden sands of Lourdas Beach, where you can rent a boat, canoe, or jet ski and get out on the water with your family. Drive just two miles and swim in the sparkling waters of Koroni Beach.

Under the Roof

In the bright master bedroom, you can stretch out in the double bed, step out onto your private balcony, or enjoy a water massage in the decadent shower in the en-suite bathroom. Two more guests are spoiled with their own private balcony in the 2nd bedroom and 2 comfortable twin-size beds. A 2nd full bathroom features a jetted tub.

Open the French doors to let the sea breeze into the ornate living room while you lounge on the couch. The rustic kitchen has all cooking essentials and a dark wood table for an intimate dinner. Enjoy all the comforts of home, including original artwork created by our close friend and a washing machine for keeping clothes clean.

On the Island

The Island of Kefalonia is famous for its verdant mountain landscape, which abuts the crystal-blue sea. Impressive limestone cliffs and caves carve out the coastline and lead to magazine-cover beaches. All seasons are spectacular here, but 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. And in August, a gorgeous full blue moon glows spectacularly in the night sky.

From the villa, drive 10 minutes to the Village of Lourdas, where you can savor delicious local fare and explore the colorful culture. Travel a little further to Argostoli, the energetic capitol 15-miles away, or take a leisurely winery tour. Come find your slice of heaven by the sea!


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 Penelope 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!

The villa is fantastic and bigger than it looks in the pictures. The villa is spotlessly clean and well equipped, the pool area the same. Wonderful views over to Zante and along the coast too. The owner Paraskevas is wonderful, so helpful and nothing is too much trouble and speaks great English. Wouldn't hesitate to return here as we stayed in the other villa last year. If you want peace and quiet this is the place, you don't hear any traffic yet you are only 5 minutes away from restaurants and shops in Lourdas.

Best vacations in Greece in a wonderfull place with a beautiful view on the sea on harmony with the nature. Paraskevas has all the time done his best to welcome on very good conditions. Regards

We spend our holiday with our three children (6, 12 and 15) at this beautiful location. It is a great and very complete villa, furnished with great care and the property is very well maintained. The sea view is breath taking overlooking Zakynthos. The villa has everything that is needed: excellent kitchen with dishwasher, oven, microwave, plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery etc. Large refrigerator and freezer. A washing machine, arconditioning in all rooms. Two (small) but good bathrooms. Good quality BBQ, garden furniture and sun beds and wonderfull and clean pool. Enclosed garden with private parking. The surroundings are beautiful with lovely beaches and restaurants.The owner and his family are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Paraskevas makes every effort to provide his guests a fantastic holiday en feel welcome (with respect for privacy). We enjoyed a great holiday and the hospitality and will definitely return!

This is one of the best 2-bedroom villas in the southern half of Kefalonia. One of two adjacent villas managed directly by the owner, Villa Penelope is fully loaded with all you could want for a comfortable and relaxing time – whether you have a young family, or you are looking for a ‘get-away-from-it-all’ break. We found that everything in the online description is spot-on, including driving times to the larger towns and to local shops and bars / restaurants etc. The location is fantastic and absolutely stunning. A moderately steep but very manageable driveway leads to the villa, which overlooks the Ionian Sea - with Zakynthos out to the front-left - featuring uninterrupted and hypnotic views to the horizon, whilst the Ainos Mountain provide a magnificent contrast to the rear. There is no direct access to the sea, but Lourdas (blue-flag) beach is within a 10 minute drive, and there are several more acknowledged beaches within very easy reach. The villa is spacious, and is actually bigger than the owner’s pictures suggest. A car is essential to get the most out of the location, and the owner is available nearby (but careful not to be intrusive) to help with local advice on what to see – and how to get there. Over the last few years, we have been to several different villas in Greece (and a couple in Spain) - but this is certainly the best holiday yet. Don’t hesitate – I’m sure you will love it too!

As a family with 3 children we enjoyed a very pleasant and peaceful week in Penelope Villa last august. The Villa is fully furnished with taste. The pretty swimming pool was absolutely the family spot, with clear water, sun beds and a sea view. The Owner living on the property is a cultivated man, speaking english, and a very caring host, who make sure you have what you need to enjoy the place and all information and advice to explore this Island. A car is absolutely mandatory. Several beaches and restaurants can then be reached easily. Kefalonia water can be drunk which is a real advantage compared to other ionian islands ! Have a good stay Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers

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.
