We have just returned from our Family holiday, May 2018. This was our forth time to Kefelonia and have stayed in Metaxata each time, we wanted to stay in this area because of the local restaurants (our favourite for ease - gyros at the taverna over the road), being close to Lassi (beaches) and Argostoli for turtles (kids love going to see them!), restaurants, shopping and close to biggger supermarkets.
Each stage from our initial booking has been extremely easy and the owner has been excellent with communication throughout. All aspects were handled and made our arrival stress free. It is close to airport (10 min) and easy to find, includes parking space.
The villa had everything we needed for a family holiday with two young children, we had space for all of us. The bedrooms were very comfortable with loads of storage and hangers (very important to me).
We had all we needed in kitchen, lounge and outside areas - loads of seating space and choice. The pool was basically private we were often the only family there, plus 4 sun loungers provided. The complex is small and everyone is very friendly.
The villa was cleaned in the middle of our stay and totally refreshed. All towels and bed linen changed. Ample amount of towels all sizes and beach towels provided.
It is exactly as described and photographed.
Thank you so much for sharing your villa with us for our family holiday.
Wow! We had a great time at Herakles 1 in Metaxata! Amazing location, beautiful scenery and within easy reach of all local beaches, tavernas and shops.
The villa was very well equipped and cosy and comfortable too. Lindy and Gary the caretakers are very friendly and do a brilliant job with interim cleaning and laundry.
The pool was excellent with breathtaking views, very well looked after and a good size. Never too many people there and only 50 metres or so walk away.
Thank you Nigel, we all had a Great relaxing holiday at Herakles 1 in beautiful Kefalonia!
No passing traffic and only short walk to local shop and gyros bar! Best of both worlds. Pool is fabulous and never too busy. Clean, comfortable villa we felt at home straightaway. Short walk or drive to many other eateries and beaches. Spoilt for choice. You need a car to get around and many rental options available. Handy information folder in villa. Our 2nd visit and we will be back again.
I booked Herakles 1 as a surprise birthday trip for my parents. They were thrilled. The villa is clean and comfortable with relaxing views over the olive groves and mountains. Nigel was very accommodating and I would definitely recommend a stay here.
My family and I have just spent a wonderful week at the end of June in Herakles 1 The villa was comfortable and very well equipped and in a perfect location. Only a couple of minutes walk to the shared pool, which was a perfect size, quiet with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. You really could be in paradise! A car is essential, and well worth the hassle free driving around the small villages, gorgeous beaches and coves whilst taking in the breath taking scenery of this beautiful island. Communication with Nigel, the owner was excellent. We can't wait to come back, and will definitely look to stay at Herakles 1 again.
We found the two bedroom apartment very well equipped and with good space both inside and outside. It is a short journey from the airport and in an excellent location to explore Kefalonia. Nigel was very helpful with the directions and preparation. The 20 metre shared pool and poolside areas are stunning and there was only one day when it was busy. Beaches and restaurants are all a short distance
