Guestbook - Astra Villas in Kefalonia, Skala


Welcome to Astra Villas guestbook. Feel free to write your opinion on our hotel.

  • Lovely villa in with superb view!

    We stayed in villa Aphrodite in June this year 2018. We had a super time,the pool was a great bonus as the weather was very hot.There is a great view from the terrace and balconies.We found the booking of the villa very quick and easy and everyone seemed very welcome and friendly especially the housekeeper Ignessa who did a wonderful job of keeping the villa and grounds very clean and tidy.We think a car is a must because of location and to be able to explore the beauty of Kefalonia. This is a lovely villa and I’m sure we will return.

  • Fantastic villa

    I stayed here with my Fiancee and her daughter in late September 14 and what a fantastic villa Appollo is. All mod cons, Stella who visited most days was brilliant and bedding/towels changed every 2/3 days.The villa which was one of 3 on this site are so beautifully laid out with every room being so spacious. The kitchen was supplied with all electrical appliances and excellent stocks of cutlery, china, cooking utensils. Outside the pool area is so well set up and very relaxing. Views are outstanding from all parts of the villa. Due to location a car is a good idea and there are several hire firms in Skala town all will deliver to the door, budget being very good and helpful. Manager, Ourania was great and even arranged for a taxi to meet and return us to the airport so if you want a great place to stay and feel totally relaxed these villa’s are just the place. Check out the web site you will be impressed, Graham, Clare & Kerri

  • Villa Zeus

    We have just returned home from Kefalonia,having spent two weeks in Villa Zeus. It was perfect! There were 6 of us,my parents,my two teenagers and my husband and I. The villa has everything you could need and the pool is lovely. Dina is fantastic and saved the day when our prebooked taxi company dumped us at the bottom of the unmade road with all our suitcases in the midday sun! She was so helpful throughout the two weeks. You definitely need a car because although the walk is safe into Skala,it takes about 50 minutes and on the way back it is uphill. The restaurants were lovely and plentiful, we didn\’t have one bad meal at all. We booked an island tour through Panem travel in the middle of Skala and the tour guide Esme is like a walking encyclopaedia , well worth going and they pick you up at the end of the road to the villa. The beach is nice but very stony so you need waterproof shoes to enjoy it.Overall I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone ,we had an amazing holiday and would love to go back.

  • villa Artemis

    We spent another faultless and relaxing week in the lovely Villa Artemis. We have found Skala and surrounding areas to be such a lovely area for having a hot and sunny break, a must is travelling to see Myrtos beach, WOW its beautiful.

    Thankyou ever so much to Ourania who arranged everything for us, you are very helpful throughout and Stella who assisted while we were there.

    Roll on 2014, we hope to visit again, perhaps at Zeus & Olympias Villas!!!!

    We stopped in Aphrodite villa.
    The interior and equipment of a country house in reality is better, than on a photo. Separate thanks of Ourania for the fast solution of questions.

  • Wonderful Villas

    I’d just like to say a big thank you for letting us hire your villas, they are amazing and good location for Skala, and other close towns.

    I think they were great value for money and would definatly come back.

    Many thanks

  • A beautiful holiday

    We spent the last week of July at villa Zeus. I would thoroughly recommend it and would return myself if I get the chance.

    The area was beautiful, the villa well equipped and well maintained. Dina was very helpful and friendly. Local beaches and swimming excellent. The pool is clear and well maintained.

    I would advise anyone considering villa Zeus or Olympus to hire a car as it is quite a walk to the beaches and Skala and in the heat it is a bit of a challenge. Do not rely on the ‘free WiFi’ as the signal is from a hotel on the opposite side of the main road and is very poor even if you sit outside the hotel. There are lots of cafes in Skala that offer free internet whilst you enjoy your drink if you just can’t leave work or facebook at home though!

  • Brilliant Place to Stay

    Spent the first week in July at Astra Villas and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The villa was very well equipped with absolutely everything one needs for a pleasant and comfortable stay. Spent a lot of time at the pool, which was crystal clear and well maintained. The villa is situated in a peaceful setting within close proximity to Skala, the beach and all the local restaurants.

    The staff were extremely helpful, with Ourania organising our booking and Dina making sure that we had everything we needed, including some very helpful advice about places to visit on the island and enjoy the Greek cuisine.

    My nephew recommended Astra Villas to us and we are very happy that he did. In fact, we are thinking about visiting again in the new year.

  • What a find…!!

    Just landed back in the UK after spending a week with my wife and 2 children at the Villa Zeus.

    The Villa is in excellent condition well looked after and well maintained. The booking service and dealing with Ouriana was perfect and they were more than willing to help…..from making payment to giving directions from the airport, which were straight forward. The mid week house clean carried out by the very frendly and helpfull Dina….could not be faulted.

    All in all great value for money, great villa, great alround service which made for a great holiday….would recommend it to anyone.

    Roll on 2012….

  • Villa Zeus

    We have just returned from a week staying in Villa Zeus and thoroughly enjoyed it, the villa met all expectations and the communication, management and advice both prior to our holiday and during our holiday were very very good. Would definitely recommend to others and already know of friends and colleagues that will be booking for this year (if available)and next based on our feedback.

    Date of stay: 07.06.2011 – 21.06.2011.
    We wanted a special holiday to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and villa Artemis did not disappoint!
    A quiet location with stunning views, one of the best villas we have stayed in. The maintenance & cleaning staff were excellent and made our stay as comfortable as possible. Kefalonia is a lovely island and we would recommend Astra Villas without any hesitation.

  • Great Vills

    What can I say. We have stayed in Villa Zeus twice and both visits were great. The villa is in a quiet location but a car is advisable though taxis are readily available ,Dina is a treasure, efficient but not invasive on privacy. We will return again next year for definite. Kefalonia is a brilliant island.

    Very nice clean property with a good layout, the pool is well maintained and the property is situated in a quiet location, shops and restaurants close but i would recommend a car unless you are very fit.
    We had an excellent holiday and would recommend anyone to holiday here.
    Food at the small old port of Poros was very good just a 10 min drive away.
    We would recommend this property

    Week of holiday 5th of September till 12th September 2010
    Villa Aphrodite.

    I would like to say how easy the booking process was and how well looked after and clean the villa was. The directions from the airport to get to the villa were straight forward and simple to understand. Housekeeping,towel and sheet change mid week, along with pool cleaning were carried out most professionally and unobtrusively.
    We stayed in Villa Aphrodite, which is the first as you go up the entrance drive (in first gear may I add if you are driving). There is room to park two or more vehicles without a problem.
    The only thing that disappointed us was the distance from Skala. it is by far further than 1.5km from the main “strip” of cafe’s, tavernas etc. It is nearer 4km and a good 45 mins walk if you can maintain a decent pace. The distance mentioned on this web site was one reason why we booked, we were willing to walk 20-30mins to get to Skala but not 45 which would have had you very tired before you got there.
    That said, there is nothing else we can say to fault the location and the standard of the villa or service, both were excellent. I’m sure if we had needed to avail ourselves of help or assistance from Dina the lady who greeted us the day after our arrival, I’m sure she would have been more than happy to oblige.
    To quickly sum things up:
    Excellent Villa
    Excellent Value
    Excellent Holiday
