Located in Western Greece, Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is a popular choice with travellers seeking villa holidays.
With a population of 36,404, Kefalonia is one of the most popular destinations of the Ionian Islands and the biggest island of the group.
Located between Lefkada and Zakynthos, the Greek Island has many wonderful beaches with fine sand and turquoise bleach-like waters that are specific to the island. The island also has many natural attractions, including picturesque villages and a National Park, where the island’s highest mountain, Mount Ainos, can be found.
The island is full of legend and history, with its name said to come from King Kephalos. Kefalonia’s history is a feature that visitors will find themselves becoming enveloped in, with ruins and varying architecture that add to the island’s mythological charm.
A lot of our valued customers who have spent time on the island have all expressed their delight:
“We have just returned from our family holiday in Kefalonia at Villa Michas, it was fabulous The villa, the flights, the pick up, the place all good and the villa was amazing!!! Thank you for all your professional attention to detail, I couldn’t believe how everything went so smoothly. I shall certainly be recommending villaparade to family and friends.” Villa Michas, Lourdas
“Villa Roses in Kefalonia was outstandingly well-designed, fitted to a high specification (lots of marble, glass and tiles, beautifully sited with sea views and the owner’s son was charming, flexible and helpful (as were your efficient UK staff- thanks, James and Heather!) Good choice, overall – a stunning holiday.” Thanks, Alex. Villa Roses, Sami
“Having just got back from two weeks at Villa Provenzo, Lourdas – Kefalonia we all feel so rested. It is a beautiful spacious villa in a lovely quiet location with a choice of restaurants and mini markets within walking distance. We were a group of six including myself and my husband plus our two daughters aged 21 and 19 and their boyfriends of the same age. The villa and pool were kept immaculately clean by Maria and her husband and she was just on the other end of the phone if we had any problems (she accidentally swept up my daughters cuddly toys in the laundry,which she promptly rescued from the local laundry when we realised they were missing). I would recommend the local Greek restaurants particularly Spiros, Zorbas, La Mer and The Olive Lounge, our one foray into the English owned restaurant Lorraine’s was disappointing. We finished of some of our evenings at Muses, the cocktail bar a stones through from the villa which was very civilised. Overall a lovely villa in a very nice little village with a strenuous walk up from the beach to work up an appetite.” With regards, Justine Roseblade. Villa Provenzo, Lourdas
“Our recent stay with Villa Parade in Kefalonia was fabulous. The villa surpassed our expectations, and we will be booking with Villa Parade again for next year.” Villa Provenzo, Lourdas
