Eccellente!!!
Appartamento nuovo, comodo, spazioso, rifinito e dotato di ogni immaginabile comfort. Pulizia impeccabile. Letti comodissimi , aria condizionata facilmente regolabile, lavatrice e stendino per il bucato, esternamente una veranda attrezzata con tavolo e sedie e intorno tanto verde e piante rigogliose. Maria è un'ospite presente, affettuosa e sempre pronta a dare indicazioni, consigli e aiuto . Posizione comoda per raggiungere sia le spiagge che il centro di Argostoli. Assolutamente consigliata sotto tutti gli aspetti!

Cefalonia 2022
Casa molto bella e spaziosa con giardino e barbecue a disposizione. Forse servirebbe una cucina con piano cottura più grande. Maria e Panagiotis sono sempre a disposizione per dare informazioni utili. Davvero gentili entrambi. La posizione della casa è davvero comoda come punto di partenza per visitare spiagge in zona sud in circa 20 minuti di macchina. Le altre spiagge dell'isola sono raggiungibili in circa 45 50minuti. Cefalonia è stupenda.

An extraordinary experience!
Although it was a summer of uncertainty, due to the pandemic, we decided to go on vacation. We made the best choice! The location is excellent, the 3 villas are where the mountain intertwines with the sea. As soon as we got out of the car, we smelled jasmine flowers and more, from the incredibly beautiful garden that surrounds the houses. The hosts waited for us with refreshments and products specific to the island, made at home and I thank them once again. The beaches are wonderful, the water is clear and you have the feeling of total relaxation. I will gladly return to Korallis Villa anytime! Thank you Maria and Panos!

We enjoyed our stay at Korallis Villas this summer, and for sure we will be back again on next time in Kefalonia. The property is very clean, apartaments are spatious 50-70mp, confortable, super utilated, 2 apartaments per Villa, surrounded by lovely gardens, giving you a nice sense of privacy (each appartament has its own terrace and separate entry). We liked its quiet location, outside of city noise, (you really appreciate the quiet in the evening after the day), but still with easy to access best beaches in kefalonia. But our best thanks are for the host, that helped us with many advices and a very warm welcome.

Meraviglioso
Sono stata al Korallis Villas per una settimana ad agosto e mi sono sentita a casa. E' tutto molto curato, pulito e comodo. I padroni di casa sono eccezionali. L'appartamento splendido. Anche la posizione delle ville permette di raggiungere comodamente tutte le spiagge a nord e a sud dell'isola. Ci tornerò perchè raramente sono stata così bene. Barbara

Excellent choice!
We made an excellent choice with Villa Ianthe in Korallis Villas. It is so well located that you can easily visit the whole island and its attractions. We had also the help of the host with best tips on how to organize our vacation days in order to make sure that we do not miss any beautiful beach or nice tavern on the island. The accommodation provides you anything you need; the place is very nicely furnished and it is very clean. You also have a great view of the sea and the area while sitting on the terrace. The garden full of lavanda, of beautiful flowers, olive trees - is like a little paradise. But what makes this place so special is the host - Maria and her mother, who make you feel like home! We’ll definetely come back!!!

About the neighbourhood
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is considered as the jewel of the Ionian Sea. The island is generously gifted by nature, a place with rare geological phenomena, mysterious caves, and subterranean water with superb beaches, traditional architecture and rich archaeological finds. Karavados village is located southwest of Kefalonia, approximately 10km/ 7miles south of the capital, Argostoli. Villa Ianthe itself is built in a beautiful location about 500m inland and in the greater area one will find numerous stunning beaches, some of which are provided with water sports facilities. The broader Karavados area offers many options for sightseeing as there is a considerable number of attractions both of historical and natural interest. We suggest you visit: •The Venetian fortress of Saint George, which was built in 1504 and is located on a hill above the village of Peratata, 5 minutes drive away from our estate. •The Minoan tombs in Mazarakata. •The National Park of Mount Ainos which was created in 1962 to protect the indigenous specimen of elati and its rich fauna. The Park also shelters the famous Kefalonian Wild Horses. •The Monastery of Saint Gerasimos, the patron Saint of Kefalonia, located in Omala, 13km away. •The Archaeological, Historical and Cultural Museums in Argostoli are also worth visiting as they all display interesting exhibits from pre-historic times. During your stay if you wish to further explore the island we recommend the following outdoor activities: •Scuba diving •Off-road safari •Walking trips •Caving •Horse riding in Ainos •Private boat hiring Supplementary information can be provided on request. The traditional way of fun is characterised by the numerous feasts organised every year for the celebrartion of the local Saints in various villages all over the island. Some of the most important feasts you should not miss out take place in July or August; for example the feast of St. Gerasimos on the 16th August, that of Virgin Mary on the 15th and the Robola Wine festival in mid August.
