“A Perfect Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Kefalonia and the Villa Arcadia was the Icing on the cake. Villa Arcadia was really the perfect retreat, it's in a wonderful location on what I feel is the best part of the Island. Just 10 minutes drive away is the lovely village of Agia Efimia with it's beutiful waterfront, great Tavernas (with incredibly friendly staff, especially the To Steki restaurant, amazing hospitality and food). Our favourite beach on the island is the beautiful Antisamos (again 10 minutes away), and Fiskardo which is well worth a visit is only 40 minutes away. The villa is so well equipped and quiet and Rob and Olivia seem to have thought of everything to make your visit an enjoyable one. I would go so far as to say it's the best villa I've had the pleasure to stay in and I definitely want to go back. Thank you Rob and Olivia.

My family and I have just returned from a stay at Arcadia villa. It was LOVELY!
The area around the villa was so peaceful and quiet, the only noises you could hear were the roosters and the goats, the goats walked past the villa everyday which was a fun sight.
The villa itself was perfect for the 6 of us. It had everything we needed for our family holiday, a fully equipped kitchen, barbecue and a lovely swimming pool.
The town of Sami is lovely, we tried several of the tavernas and restaurants, our favouite was the Familia, they had their own wine which was lovely.
Everyone was very friendly, the taxi drivers who picked us up and took us back to the airport were so nice. They told us about the history of their island, told us the best places to go and drove us past the winery which makes the lovely robola wine.
We hired a car for a couple of days, which I would say is a must have if you are going into town every day. Its about a 25 minute walk to the beach from the villa, then another 10 minutes to the restaurants. Cabs are very reasonable though.
Overall a lovely villa, it was our first family holiday together and we had great time.

We started going to Kefalonia about five years ago. We first stayed in Arcadia about five years ago and loved it so much that we have been back every year since, The villa is secluded but not too secluded and is a very pleasant walk from Sami itself. The Villa is very well appointed, the pool is wonderful.Each year we go there have been improvements made and its lovely to see how the garden is maturing . I can't express how much we enjoy going to Kefalonia and in particular Sami and Arcadia. The locals are very friendly and Sami is a very safe place for children. However if you are looking for bright lights and a frantic nightlife this isn;t the place for you. My children decided earlier this year that after five years they wanted to go somewhere else. They now inform me that they would like to go back after all. Hopefully I can make a booking, but I have already booked for next year.

Every year we go it's like coming home and when we leave we feel completely relaxed. A fantastic holiday each year we've been and we never tire of it.

Liked best: The situation of the very well appointed villa.
Liked least: The size of the double bed is a little small compared to what we are used to.
