“Fantastic Villa”
Reviewed 14 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017
person found this review helpful

A beautiful, clean and modern villa with an absolutely stunning view.
The villa is very spacious inside and outside. It was impeccably clean and a lady came to clean the house every day. She even made the beds and did any washing up we had left. The beds are very comfortable, towels were provided for the showers and another set for the pool. The view from the villa is absolutely stunning. You can’t meet a swim in the pool while watching the sunset. It’s worth pointing out that the jacuzzi is not heated. We stayed in October, the pool temperature was cold but “ok once you’re in” and we did make use of it every day. The sea temperature was much warmer.
Although the villa is located just a couple of miles from the airport, we hardly noticed any planes coming and going and on the few occasions we noticed our little ones loved watching them take off.
We really appreciated the fact that the villa was situated just a outside a town as it made it so much more peaceful and relaxing.
You will need to rent a car with this villa.
The nearest town Lassi is about a 5 minute drive and has so many nice restaurants, a couple of convenience shops and a fantastic large sandy beach with both free and charged sunbeds and umbrellas. Another 5-10 minutes on is Argostoli, the capital.
We will definitely come back to this villa!

“Luxury home from home villa”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

June 2017, 4 of us stayed at the Villa. It is literally a few minutes from the airport.

Elina kindly arranged for a taxi to pick us up (20 euros) and also liaised with the car hire company (Greekstones - rent a car) to delivery the car to the villa on the morning of day 2.

Villa Alexandra was perfect for our week in the sun. It is well equipped both internally and externally as the website shows (photos are accurate).

The proximity to Lassi is great (5-10mins) as there is a superb beach there with excellent facilities, Argastoli is a further few minutes by car. We ventured to the north of the island to visit the picturesque fishing port of Fiskardo, passing the amazing view/beach at Myrtos. The journey took around 2 hours and is not for the faint hearted.

There are a few large supermarkets outside of Argostoli, I would give Lldl a miss and go across the road to A&B Supermarket (i think that was the name) cleaner, greater choice and better value.

Something to note, there's a family of cats that live around the villa, mum dad and a kitten. They were very thin when we arrived but we bought tins of food for then from the shops. They actually completed our holiday, as pet people we very much warmed to them and by the end of the week, they'd all put on a lot of weight.

There's a guest book in the villa that mentions the cat's and someone actually bragged about NOT feeding them, pretty heartless in my opinion.

To sum up, a great villa, perfect location, excellent amenities, caring owners. Would I go back? Definitely.

This villa is amazing, beautiful views, garden and pool with jacuzzi.

Perfect for a very relaxing holiday. The cleaning lady kept the villa spotless.

Easy to reach nearby beaches and within 15 minutes from the capital Argostoli,

Our favourite restaurant was Cavo nr the Lixouri Ferry departure point.

Kefalonia is a beautiful island and this villa has to be one of the best.

“A perfect villa with everything you could as for”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014
person found this review helpful

We had an amazing week at Villa Alexandra, you can tell its a modern Villa with purpose built into it, the place is superb, the space and feel is great and the pool area is something else, some real thought has gone into the design on it, and the interior design is also excellent with the bathrooms having the feel of a 5* hotel

The location at first we were a little concerned being only 2 miles from the airport but its fine, if anything watching the 2-3 planes come and go during the day is a nice break from sun bathing, and the setting on the hill makes for a spectacular view over the island

A few little points (there's always some hey) but the beds were really uncomfortable and hard, its a shame as so much care and attention went into everything else and its almost as if they got the cheapest hardest matteress about!

Also the maid made a few 'unexpected' visits to 'clean' we were told only to expect here half way through the week and one morning woke with alarm hearing someone downstairs when not expected, and another day walked in from the neighbouring villa as we were sunbathing!

But apart from those little things its a perfect villa, and I highly recommend it!
