“Brilliant holiday”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Everything was wonderful,so clean, so relaxed, so peaceful and such a beautiful view. From the minute we arrived we were looked after, Irene is a great host without being at all intrusive and her staff are brilliant too. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here, loved eating at the OliveLounge and the restaurant on Trapazaki beach ( Deniz??) and really enjoyed the quiet but beautiful beaches.. We hired a car at the airport which we found essential. No negatives at all. Thank you

Where to start? This is our first trip to Kefalonia and what a fantastic one. After a quick scan of accomodation on the island we came across the Garbis web site and after a look at trip advisor booked it. I have to say all the comments are correct. The position is stunning, the rooms and cleanliness are fantastic. Irene is always there but unobtrusive and what a charismatic and interesting woman to talk to. Alexander ensures the rooms are always immaculate. One point to note is that the views come at a price, hills, but anyone of reasonable fitness will have no problems, we even managed the footpath down to the beach and back again. Car hire is also easy. Thankyou to Irene and Alexander for making our stay fantastic. Will we be back? Absolutely. Stuart and Tricia

Perfect. We drove around the whole island on our moped and didn't find anywhere which topped this location. Good amount of great restaurants in the area plus 3 supermarkets. The beach is a 10-15 minute walk down the hill (if you go the right way). Even though there is all the amenities you need it doesn't feel too touristy here. The area is nicely tucked away in the winding Greek roads and floral vegetation. The apartment was clean and friendly. Great pool, great view. It's near to the airport so only $25 Euros in a taxi. The main town Argostoli is 15 mins drive (or less) as is 'Lassi' which is more touristy but has nice beaches and a bit more life if you are up for a busier evening. Jake

Room Tip: Any room would be great. Balcony rooms offer the best view while dining outside though.

Sitting poolside at Garbis Villas, late afternoon on our last night in Kefalonia. What a find this was. Beautiful location, very convenient to the airport, shops, great restaurants, lovely beaches. Very well maintained villas, attentive, efficient but never intrusive on site management. And affordable priced. Oh yes, we'll be back!

Just returned after 10 days on this wonderful island. 3 nights spent at the superb Garbis.Great location, ample parking,superb views, spotlessly clean appartment and the friendly Garbis family taking care of every need. Will be returning sooner rather than later. P S Olive Lounge is by far the best restaurant locally..Have fun.

Room Tip: All rooms have glorious sea views

We (2 middle age couples) have spent our last 3 summer hols at garbis.(each at least 2 weeks in August)
Our experience was one of high quality accomodation rarely found in the greek isles at such reasonable prices.
All is very well maintained ..cleaned regularly no noise...no dogs fantastic pool ...views overlooking sea to Zante.
Car is preferable unless you just want to stay poolside daytime and walk to several good tavernas (10mins a little uphill) in the evening. otherwise with car there are several lovely safe sandy beaches with tavernas within 10 mins drive a a few days out around kef if u have not already explored.
With a heavy heart we have chosen NW Crete for 2014 hols. it was tough to find similar quality accomodation at similar prices with pool and views. we await a comparison.........I suspect we will return to garbis and renew our aquaintance with the lovely Irene and family before too long

Garbis Villas is a real find. It is in a beautiful location with wonderful views across the sea to Zante.
All apartments are spotlessly clean and Alexandra goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable.

Irene, the owner, is absolutely charming. She is very friendly and welcomes you to 'her home'. She is always around to answer any questions you may have and tries to make sure that you have everything you need during your stay.

We have stayed at the Villas many times now - we usually go off season - and we always have a very peaceful and relaxing holiday.

Lourdas village is a short walk away where there are many restaurants for you to choose from.

I would highly recommend these apartments - ideal for couples or friends who want a quieter type of holiday.
