“A must-place-to-visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Villa Forestata is definitely one of my recommended places to stay or visit when you find yourself at the wonderful island of Kefalonia. With an amazing view, great rooms and excellent services that make you feel part of the family. It is in a convenient location for all the must-go places while you are at the area of Paliki as long as you have a car. If you are looking for a more intimate getaway and you are a fan of new experiences then Villa Forestata with its friendly staff is definitely a place worth your attention.

We found this place here on tripadvisor and I liked it instantly. It is up on a hill, so you have to drive a bit to get to it, but everything is close> Lixouri, Xi and Vatsa beach, Petania which is the best, and so on. The view is magnificent and the rooms are good. We stayed at the upper level so we had the best view, however the apartament and the other studios look very good as well. There is a small kitchen with fridge and everything, air conditioning and a balcony. The breakfast is good, the home made jams and the yoghurt are the best and if you ask the hosts, they can cook other meals for you. We had dinner twice there and it was excellent.
Long story short, it is a really great place to stay in kefalonia.

We were a part of a beautiful wedding that was held in a small church that you can see from Villa Forestata. Family from Greece and the US all stayed at this beautiful place. Vally and her family were supurb hosts for 10 days and made the wedding a most exceptional stay. The apartments are charming, and I still dream of the fabulous breakfasts. Fresh bread, homemade
jams and special marinated pears are just a few of treats to be enjoyed. We sat on the patio for hours reading and enjoying the beautiful views. Next time we will rent a car and stay longer. We had no trouble getting taxis pick us up with a quick call from Vally, but would have more flexibility for traveling around the island if we had booked an auto in advance. I highly recommend this wonderful place and will be back soon.

Room Tip: The rooms were all equally charming.

We stayed at Villa Forestata for two weeks during Aug 2012. Firt of all the "negative" aspects:
- it's placed on a hill, impossible to go anywhere without a car
- there isn't a restaurant service in the structure, only breakfast.
These two facts are clearly indicated also in their website.
All the rest is widely positive: the rooms/apartments are big enough and quite new, the owners are friendly but never too present or intrusive; Lixouri is a 5 km drive and you can find almost anything you may need (also an hospital). long story short: surely suggested.
