A wonderful holiday villa
By Anna S. on 22-Jul-2019
We 100 percent recommend this gorgeous villa. It was our first time in Kefalonia and Lyra Villas was a perfect location, towards the beautiful north of the island and tucked away from tourists! The villa was perfect and as described, the pool was beautiful. Every bedroom had a balcony with a view and I loved sitting in bed looking out on the mountaneous scenery! Our family have just had the holiday of a lifetime here!
We were welcomed in person even though we arrived at midnight after a late flight. There was enough delicious food in the fridge for the next day.
Hiring a car was essential to explore. Lida had left us a photo book at the Villa detailing all the best island beaches, most of them were off the beaten track and all were amazing - crystal clear waters and often with friendly, local Greek tavernas overlooking the sea. We could see the sea in the distance from the villa but used the car to get there because it was difficult to walk in the heat. The weather was glorious - hot but gently breezy, we loved it!
We hired a motor boat for the day locally and explored the coves along the island that can only be reached from the sea. AMAZING!
We were made so very welcome by Lida and the local Kefalonian community - we'll be back!

We had a wonderful stay at the villa. A real home from home with everything we could have needed. A lovely taverna in the village and just a 10 minute drive to Agia Effimia. If you are looking for peace and quiet I would highly recommend
Beautiful Villa in typical Greek Village above Agia Efimia
By Ian T. on 07-Oct-2018
From the moment we arrived at Villa Vounaki, and were met by Lisa and Peter, we knew we had made a great choice. The villa is perfect, peaceful and a fantastic location just 10 minutes from the Fishing Harbour town of Agia Efimia on the east and 10 minutes from Myrtos Beach on the western side of the island.
Everything about the Villa was classy with so many different areas to relax. The swimming pool was great with the water a little cold in 1st week of October. However we spent every day exploring different beaches and swam every day and found the water warm. Our favourite beach was Aga Kyriaki, followed closely by Ieoulasiem
We ate out every evening at a different restaurant and made some great choices. The restaurant in the village was excellent for grilled meats. Other excellent restaurants were Pergola, Paradise Beach and the Restaurant on the left after Hotel Odyssey. The resort will be closing down in the next week or so but if you like your holidays to be quieter then don't hesitate with early October- I am going home today with a great suntan after a lovely holiday
Gorgeous villa in a gorgeous rural setting.

Beautiful villa in a traditional Greek village. The attention to detail the owners have put into the villa is makes this a truly beautiful place to enjoy a family holiday. The welcome pack left by the owners was a lovely touch. Local taverna was lovely and friendly. Wouldn’t think twice about spending another holiday at this lovely villa.

The best holiday we have had as a family! The villa is perfect, designed with a beautiful view of Agia Efimia cut through hedges of flowering shrubs. Pool and house were immaculately clean. Towels provided. On arrival we were greeted warmly and the owners had provided enough food to last well into the next day. Cooking utensils were of a very high standard and oil and vinegar were provided. The local taverna in 5 mins walk serves some of the best greek food we have tasted and they are so welcoming. Supermarkets and bakeries available in Agia Efimia, local bakery 5mins drive away.
The villa is cleaned mid week and all the bedding and towels changed, the pool is cleaned too. Cannot fault our villa and hosts!
Fantastic week in a lovely villa ideally situated to tour the north of the island.
By Suzanne S. on 21-Jun-2018
We stayed in this villa for a week in early June 2018. There was a warm welcome from the owners including a lovely welcome pack for the first evening. The house is well laid out, modern and very clean and beautifully decorated. The grounds are also well designed giving privacy and 3/4 choices of separate outside seating areas. The pool is a decent size and well maintained. There are gas and electric barbecues available outside. The villa is located in a small village and although relatively easy to find getting out of the village may be a little difficult with a large SUV. The villa is set on an elevated site and there are some stone steps from the car park to the villa entrance which should be noted by anyone with mobility issues.
The location is ideal for trips out to all the nearby beaches which have been reviewed and incorporated in an excellent book prepared by the owners of the villa. There are a couple of decent supermarkets in Agia Efemia a lovely marina 10 minutes drive from the villa. Would highly recommend a stay in this villa; you won't be disappointed!!
