Once again we found this villa to be perfect for us. Beautifully prepared for our holiday and spotlessly clean. So close to the tavernas and beach, yet no noise , peacefull and relaxing, just what we want. Very friendly village , locals are pleased to see us and tavernas are generous with food and hospitality. The views from the villa never cease to amaze. This year there had to be a diversion from the main road, soon to be mended , but we now prefer the diversion route over the mountain , views, thrills, goats, screaming passengers , all adds to the holiday fun.

“Authentic, well equipped village house in idyllic location”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We've enjoyed many wonderful holidays on various Greek islands over the years, but our stay in Blue Note House was one of the best ever. We liked that the house was owned by a Greek family with Kefalonian roots. It was perfect for our group - my husband and I and a great friend, plus our 19 year old son and his girlfriend. There were only five of us, but the house could comfortably accommodate 8, providing 4 of the party were of an age to tolerate bunk beds. We loved the way the house opened up onto a series of outdoor spaces, the glorious views from the terraces, the quietness of the location coupled with the easy access to mini market, tavernas and the clean and pleasant bay for swimming. The little swimming pool was an added bonus. We enjoyed the paved walkway all the way up to the 16th Century fort above Assos with endless breathtaking views in every direction and the many other walks we could do from the house in the early mornings and evenings. When we could drag ourselves away from the joys of Assos, we went on excursions to the nearby Myrtos beach with its gorgeous turquoise sea; we hired a boat for a day in Fiscardo and explored bits of coast not reachable by car. We visited Mount Aenos and the extraordinary monastery of Saint Gerasimos. All in all, a great success and we would warmly recommend this lovely rental property to anyone who wants a restful, tranquil holiday.

“Blue Note House - Assos - Amazing!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Blue Note House is a beautiful villa in an idyllic setting! The views from the terrace are outstanding. The villa is nicely laid out for a comfortable and relaxing stay. It has a lovely atmosphere and the fixtures and fittings make it feel very homely.

The villa is two minutes walk from the beach and tavernas and there is a small supermarket with everything you need at the bottom of the steps. The people of Assos are kind and welcoming. We loved wandering through the village in the evening to decide where we would eat that night. In our opinion, Assos is perfect (but if you want nightclubs and loud music, you won't get it here, but that is part of its charm).

We wanted a quiet and relaxing holiday to celebrate a milestone Birthday and that's exactly what we got! We returned home feeling as though we had a holiday to heal the mind, body and soul, honestly!.

We were made to feel welcome as soon as we set foot in the villa, Koula was there to meet and greet us and show us around. The welcome basket was a thoughtful gesture and we enjoyed the homemade cake and goodies, which were lovely!

We have been left with beautiful memories of a truly enchanting holiday.

There is no doubt that we will return, possibly for our honeymoon.

“A beautiful villa for perfect memories”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We went to Kefalonia with a small party of close friends. It was a dream stay for us. The villa was well equipped and had everything we required for a great stay. A wonderful airy and relaxing house. A beautiful location with stunning views over Assos bay and the castle. The facilities were perfect for us and our guests and the local tavernas were only a short walk away. Our stay was perfect. We had a great, romantic experience with exquisite memories to share.

“Wonderful house, great location with fabulous views.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Spacious house that was lovely for the two of us, but equally great for one or even two families! The outside terraces are private and have beautiful views of the bay, castle and surrounding hills. The pool area is a fabulous bonus! And the welcome homemade goodies were delish! Housekeeping was excellent too. The house is situated on a quiet road with other local families, so we felt as if we were locals too, rather than just one of the tourists. A wonderful choice for our holiday and we would thoroughly recommend!
