October half-term in Kefalonia…

Vintage Travel, specialists in villas with private pools, is highlighting a selection of properties on Kefalonia at October half-term, an ideal opportunity to grab some late summer sunshine before the on-set of winter.

With panoramic views over the Ionian sea and neighbouring Zakynthos is Rabia, a welcoming family home in the sleepy village of Mousata and just 1.4 kms from the sandy beach of Trapezaki.  This stylish villa sleeps six in three bedrooms (one en suite) and its first-floor open-plan living area has floor-to-ceiling windows on one side which lead to a magnificent wrap-around balcony.  In the garden of lawns, olive and fruit trees, there is a private swimming pool, dining and sun terraces and a built-in barbeque.  A week from 21 October is priced at £598.

Also available is Ruggero, a contemporary beachside cottage with breathtaking sea views over Fiscardo and just 350 metres from its beach and waterfront restaurants. It sleeps four in two bedrooms and has an open-plan living area, plus two bathrooms.  Outside there is a private swimming pool and terraces.  Seven nights from 21 October cost £748.

Or, for couples restricted to taking their breaks during half-term holidays, Marina is a romantic retreat, with an open-plan living area, a shower room, plus a double bedroom with a freestanding bath tub. In the gardens there is a private swimming pool, a private shallow pool incorporating two solid sun beds, a dining terrace, along with a small private chapel nestling in the shade of two olive trees. The villa is just two kms from the sleepy village of Spartia and a drive of around 12 kms leads to the island’s capital of Argostoli with its waterside restaurants and daily markets of seafood and fresh local produce.  A week from 21 October is priced at £648.

Flights and car hire can be arranged by Vintage Travel on request.

Savings of up to £297 on villas with private pools in Kefalonia this June

Vintage Travel, specialists in villas with private pools, is offering savings of up to £297 on a choice of properties in Kefalonia during June, a time when visitors can enjoy temperatures of around 25 degrees.

The above reduction applies to Rabia – now priced at £949 from 10 June – in the sleepy village of Mousata.  This smart property, sleeping six in three bedrooms, is topsy-turvy by design to enhance the views across the Ionian Sea and neighbouring Zakynthos. Other features include floor-to-ceiling windows in the open-plan living area which open onto a magnificent wrap-around balcony.  In the grounds of lawns and olive trees, there is a private swimming pool, plus sun and shaded terraces.  Just 1.4 kms away is the sandy beach of Trapezaki.

Other offers include savings of £279 on week-long holidays from 10 June in Athina, where seven nights are now priced at £739.  The villa sleeps four in two bedrooms (one en suite) and has glorious views across the treetops to the Ionian Sea.  In its gardens there is a private pool, plus sun and dining terraces.  A 10-minute drive leads to Maganos village with its shops and local tavernas as well as the pretty shingle beach at St Jerusalem.

Or a week from 19 June at Rosepetra – enjoying superb sea views and within walking distance of the village of Maganos with its traditional taverna – now costs £1154, a reduction of £244.  The villa, 3.2 kms from Alaties beach, sleeps five in three bedrooms (one en suite) and in its gardens there is a private pool, outdoor shower, plus open and shaded terraces.

Flights and car hire can be arranged by Vintage Travel on request.

Kefalonia: save up to £350 on gorgeous villas in June

June on Kefalonia means sunny days up to 26 degrees*, un-crowded beaches and direct flights from eleven UK airports – and with Freelance Holidays policy of ‘any day arrival, any length of stay’ this is a great opportunity to mix and match cheap flights with flexible villa rental to create a bargain holiday!


For example, Villa Penelope on the Liakas peninsula is reduced from £349 per night to £299 per night, saving £50 per night or £350 on a seven-night hire from 14 June.


This villa sleeps six (three bedrooms, three shower rooms) and while the interior is as smart and modern as anyone could wish, it is the outdoor living space that packs the biggest punch: virtually 270-degree sea views, with a large private pool surrounded by a furnished sun terrace; a shady pergola on the edge of the bluff, a covered terrace with sofa set and swing seat; a BBQ dining terrace, and a rear balcony with cushioned seating offering a book-lover’s retreat from the sun.


The icing on the cake is a footpath from the villa down to a level rock platform beside the Ionian Sea, from which it’s possible to bathe; a more conventional sandy beach is no more than five minutes’ drive away.


An hour along the coast Villa Seagull also enjoys a sea-facing spot, and is reduced to £199 per night (for six people), saving £40 per night or £280 on any seven nights between 2 and 20 June. Its proximity to the laid-back family resort of Skala (just over a kilometre away) makes this the perfect villa for those who like to eat out as much as they may enjoy self-catering in the modern kitchen, or barbecuing on the dining terrace.


Other discounted villas include Poseidon (sleeping six) and Yianna (sleeping four), both with savings of £140 off seven nights’ rental throughout June.


This is a fantastic time to holiday on Kefalonia: fewer families mean more space on fabulous beaches like Myrtos, Skala and Xi. The sights are less busy too: visit Melissani Cave where the sun breaks through the roof to light up a turquoise lake, or watch loggerhead turtles gather around the fishing boats, looking for fishy scraps in Argostoli harbour.
