Out of season North Kefalonia is heaven if you want a quiet break with weather warm enough to still swim in the sea. Very quiet with the most of the busy touristy spots closed, but sufficient very local places open to get a real feel of the substance of the island.
Entheos Villa was a superb location to spend all day if you wanted with an unbelievable and uninterrupted view along the coastline of the West of the island. Every day we enjoyed the most amazing sunsets from the large area outside the front of the villa by the pool.
Spiros was very generous leaving us many local products to sample and the first evening we drank the wine he kindly gave us watching the sunset.
The villa was very well equipped for self catering and we liked using the jacuzzi bath. You could still enjoy the open view from bed if you fancied a lie in!
Thank you Spiros.
This is a new villa and has been designed and decorated in a very contemporary and stylish way. The villa is set in a small hamlet on the side of a hill with stunning views across the Ionian Sea and probably has one of the best sunset views on the island.
A car is essential but it is only 5 mins drive to decent supermarkets in Magganos and a 10-15 minute drive to Fiskardo. We ate at Fiskardo a couple of nights and at a taverna on Alaties beach (5 mins away) another night, but there are plenty of other tavernas and restaurants scattered around 5-10 mins away too. Assos is about 15 mins drive south and is another stunning small town to visit.
Spyros is a friendly and responsive host and made finding the villa very easy by meeting us at a nearby village. He has equipped the villa with everything that you could need and it is well stocked with local wines and beers available for a small fee (cheaper than the local supermarkets).
The location is amazingly peaceful and although there is lots to keep visitors occupied nearby, we were happiest lazing by the infinity pool looking out over the sea or barbecuing while watching the sun go down.
There really is nothing to fault at Entheos and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it.
