Luxury Kefalonia Villas Five of the best for summer 2023

Luxury Kefalonia Villas: For couples, families, and large groups

It may be comparatively small compared to other Greek islands, but Kefalonia packs a big punch when it comes to what there is to see and do there.

From the beautiful and much photographed beaches and warm, azure waters to charming, characterful fishing towns and villages, there’s also intriguing underground lakes and beautiful limestone caves to explore, not to mention the breath-taking mountain scenery.

Having offered luxury Kefalonia villas here for nearly 30 years, we know both our unique properties and the island itself intimately and can offer ‘insider’ information as to which area and property will best suit you and your fellow holiday makers, whether you’re a family, couple (honeymooners, too) or group of friends.

Here’s a selection of luxury Kefalonia villas  to whet your appetite, for Villa Holidays 2024 and beyond.


Best luxury Kefalonia Villas for Families

What? Villa Atlantis

Where? Katelios

How many? Sleeping 7 in 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

Why? Spacious, private and with not just a private pool but also a jacuzzi pool, there’s much to keep the whole family entertained within the generous grounds of Villa Atlantis. Relax on the sun beds whilst being shaded by swathes of greenery and flowering shrubs, palms and banana trees. Bliss! Still, even the closest families sometimes need to get some space or explore the surrounding area and with the unspoilt seaside village of Katelios within easy walking distance, you can enjoy a choice of tavernas, a few shops and a bakery whenever you choose.

Best luxury Kefalonia Villas for Couples

What? Villa Afroditi

Where? Spartia

How many? Sleeping 5 in 2 bedrooms 

Aaaah. Afroditi (or, as more usually spelt, Aphrodite – the Ancient Greek Goddess of love!)  We couldn’t resist including this as an obvious choice for couples, even though it can sleep more than two. Private pool? Tick! Sea views? Tick! Privacy? Tick! Villas Afroditi is one of an exclusive group of villas perched on the Liakias peninsular and just a few kilometres from Spartia village. A sandy beach is just 5 kilometres away. Want something smaller? Take a look at our couples’ collection

Best luxury Kefalonia Villas for Groups 

What? Villa Seagull, Villa Sakos and Villa Korfos 

Where? Skala

How many? Each sleeping 7 in 3 bedrooms or 21 if booked together 

If you’re travelling as part of a larger group, a multi-generational family or needing accommodation for a wedding in nearby Skala, these three adjacent luxury Kefalonia villas can be booked independently or together. All three equally luxurious, all offering sea views and all have a private pool. If you’d rather not cater for such a large group in the villa, you’ll find tavernas with lively atmosphere a short walk away.

Best luxury Kefalonia Villas in the Mountains

What? Villa Nireaus

Where? Sami

How many? Sleeping 5 in 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

Whilst most of our luxury Kefalonia villas sit right on the coast, this beautiful villa’s elevated mountain position offers superb views over Sami Bay (with Ithaki in the distance), where you’ll be surrounded by pine woodland. The smell is, frankly, divine. Electric gates ensure stray members of the local goat herds don’t stray onto the lawn and grounds! Despite its non-coastal location, it’s just a 5-minute drive down the hill to Sami’s waterfront tavernas and cafes. 

Best luxury Kefalonia villas for honeymoons

What? Villa Kalypso

Where? Spartia

How may? Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

So new it’s still sparkling, a stay in Villa Kalypso will ensure any wedding celebration endures for the entire honeymoon. Beautifully finished inside and out, here, you’re almost at the tip of the Liakas peninsular ensuring uber-private, non-overlooked sea views.  Instantly instagrammable, sit back and relax in a villa that looks almost like a spa!
