“Night Manager living - at B&B prices. Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

There is good and then there is truly excellent. And above that you have Villa Grand Avalli.
Perfect swimming in beautiful, crystal clear azure sea.
Panoramic views to die for. Private. Secluded. Immaculately fitted out. Kayaking, badminton, table tennis. Satellite TV, tastefully furnished, incredible incredible value.
Family group of 7 for a week May into June. Not one malcontent - not a single criticism. just feel incredibly fortunate to have stumbled across this place.
This villa genuinely feels like the one you would buy if you won the lottery. And yet you stay here for less than £400 per couple. Amazing. Champagne lifestyle for lemonade rental.
And to close. What happen in a crisis? Our BMW hire car burnt its clutch out travelling the 20 minutes from the airport. No it really did. Spyros stayed with me - having phoned the car rental company - keeping me informed of every development. Within an hour Georges & Stavros arrived with a 52km on the clock brand new replacement. This would NOT have happened had Spyros not gone the extra mile. Phenomenal place - phenomenal man.
Without a millisecond's hesitation. Book this tiny piece of Aegean heaven.

“Absolutely Stunning”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I stayed here with friends for a week from 6th September this year.
The location is absolutely stunning and the villas position certainly makes the best use of this!!
The view from the balcony is incredible.
The villa itself is immaculate and so well equipped.
Even the bedsheets and beach towels were excellent quality.
We literally had everything we needed to hand and the owner, Spyros, allowed us to use the kayaks and canoes from the villa to paddle round the bay. He even equipped us with life jackets.
There are 3 tavernas within 3 minutes walk of the villa which we walked to and one morning floated round to on the rubber rings we acquired from a shop in Argostoli. Admittedly we may have still been a tad on the inebriated side from the previous night spent in Lassi.
A taxi will get you there for 30 euros per journey and Spyros will give you the number of the taxi guy.
Again absolutely excellent service.
The location, quality and customer service from the owner were so superb we have tried to re-book for next year but someone has already booked the dates we need.
If this wasn't the case, we would certainly not hesitate. It is quite honestly worth every penny!!

“Beautiful villa by the sea”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Villa Grand Avali. The villa was extremely spacious and well equipped with beautiful views.
The location was perfect being right by the sea with a quiet area available to place sun beds. The surrounding area is generally quiet as well, but only a twenty minute drive away from the capital city of Argostoli.
Would definitely stay again!

We were in Kefalonia at Avali Sea Resort in August,for 2 weeks. Unfortunelly the time passed too quickly. The villa , the Avali Golf , the sea, the view .... everything was perfect! We were 2 families with young teenagers and we all had a great time. The villa is amazing,very clean , high standards , very well equiped , the sea is absolutely gorgeous and the owner,Spyros is a very attentive and ,at the same time, very non intrusive person. We were in many places in France , Spain and Greece , always hired villas and I can definitely say that Avali Sea was the most beautiful place of all. We will be back for sure!
Highly reccomended!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This villa is superb.

The standard of finish is amazing. It is equipped with groceries and household items to a greater extent than anywhere else we have stayed. It has huge amounts of space-5 bedrooms and as many balconies/outside areas. The views are stunning.

The owner is very attentive and was available when needed in a non intrusive way.

The only thing stopping me praise it more is that I don't want everyone booking it up. I intend to return.
