We spent in Villa Bolios 11 nights-2 adults and 2 kids. Villa is very spacious, has got beautiful sea view and excellent terrace. The landlord is very funny and friendly guy and we had wonderful time. Villa is 5 minutes drive from Fiscardo, which is the nicest village I have ever seen Kefalonia and Fiscardo is such a wonderful place. We would love to come one day again. Thank you Gerassimos and thank you Kefalonia for wonderfull time and holidays!!!

“Wonderful views, great villa”

We spent a month at this villa in May. It was beautiful. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. Gerasimos is a great host, nothing is to much trouble and he and his mum kept the place spotless. She also made us a lovely Kefalonian meat pie - better than any we had in the restaurants. The villa is not overlooked and has spectacular views over Ithaca. There is a lovely circular walk into Fiscardo, back via Foki bay. A car is really needed to travel around the area. Fiscardo is a pretty place with a wide variety of restaurants and there are some lovely little beaches nearby. We had a wonderful holiday and can't wait to go again next year.

“A beautiful place”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We booked for a week in September, quite last minute and were lucky to find Villa Bolios. The location is amazing; a beautiful stone house at the top of the hill overlooking Foki bay. You will need a car to get around, but that is essential to explore and experience the best of the island anyway. There are loads of small coves and beaches to explore and Fiskardo is a 5 minute drive for coffee/dinner/shopping etc.

Gerassimos (the owner) was very helpful and friendly. He would occasional turn up during the week to check everything was okay or to clean and I would have preferred it if he had let us know in advance when he was coming by but that is a really minor issue. Would definitely stay again. Really good value for money too.

“Bliss”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This place is truly enchanting and exceeded all of our expectations. A beautiful house in the old Venetian style typical of the island, that has been renovated with taste, and, importantly, kitted out with an excellent kitchen and bathrooms and nice linen.
The view from the enormous terrace (one of three to choose from) over the bay to Ithaka is stunning. The outdoor shower also has probably one of the best views ever.
Foki, the nearest beach (5 mins drive, 20 mins walk downhill, 40 mins back uphill) is a beautiful tiny cove, with an olive grove for shade, azure waters and an excellent taverna, which was the best we tried on the island.
Maganos is 5 mins drive up the hill, where there are also good tavernas and a couple of shops for fruit and veg and supplies.
Gerassimos is an excellent host, and manages to make you feel very welcome (he gave us some of his Mum's delicious homemade pesto) without being intrusive.
Heartily recommended!

“Excellent - even better than the photos!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Bolios. It was even better than the photos! The views from the villa are magnificent and there are plenty of outdoor spaces in the shade or sun to take advantage of. The renovation of this 300 year old property has been done to a very high standard with all mod cons. It was so peaceful but with a car it's only 10 minutes drive from Fiscardo and also some lovely beaches on the north of the island (the walk to the beach at Dafnoudi is well worth the effort.) Gerassimos was a very welcoming and friendly host also. Thank you for a lovely stay.
