I was staying elsewhere when I met Vivian & Nikos. Where I was staying the owners did not speak English & were absent when I was in Argostoli which I booked through booking.com as it had a high rating of 8.7. When I arrived the tourist office was closed & my accommodation did not have any tourist information. Vivian &...

We returned to Vivian villa after finding it in 2004. It is still roomy, very clean, british plumbing. The location is not far from Naval academy on sea front but still a 5 minute walk to the square. We had a studio on the ground floor with a garden patio. It was a riot of colour with flowers and herbs,...

Visited beautiful Kefalonia for 2 weeks as a solo traveler. Owners Nikos and Vivian welcomed me as family and made the visit calm, secure and a joy! Thanks to you both. Room, which included a kitchen and large balcony, was spotless and modern. Wifi provided. Close to town, just down the "palm tree" street. Restaurants very close and very good....

Nikos and Vivian at Vivian Villa are lovely friendly hosts who welcome you in like family - a bit like an aunt and uncle. The rooms are basic but spotless and the guesthouse is in a leafy, residential part of Argostoli. They also make sure you're OK, arranging little things for you if you're stuck. There's no breakfast but most...

I booked a last minute room at Vivian Villa when our plans changed and we needed somewhere to stay on our last night on Kefalonia. After a long and hot taxi ride from the ferry port, we couldn't have asked for a better welcome to Argostoli. Vivian and Nikos greeted us like long standing friends, opening the taxi doors, helping...

I found this beautiful little guest house on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Vivian keeps the place immaculate. There is constant hot water for the shower and a proper flushing toilet you can use like at home. ( none of this putting your paper in a basket). There was Vivian's home-made lemonade and cake waiting for us when...

Located in a quiet and beautiful part of town (streets lined with palm trees and oleander), Vivian's Villas is only a five-minute walk to the central square or the harbor. Our apartment was immaculately clean, and our hosts, Vivian and Nikos, extremely friendly and hospitable. Vivian welcomed us with homemade rice pudding, and Nikos took us on a tour of...
