New-build coastal villa expands 2019 Kefalonia programme

A fabulous new-build villa, and other newly-signed properties on the Liakis peninsula will expand Freelance Holidays’ programme in Kefalonia for 2019.

The Liakis headland juts south into the Ionian Sea, and each villa is cleverly sited to provide maximum privacy and fabulous – up to 270° – sea views. A footpath winds down to a natural rock platform furnished with parasols and sunbeds, known by the locals as Amandakis Beach, where a fixed ladder provides direct access to the sea. (Families with younger children will find gently shelving sand only 5kms away by car.)

Villa Roberta is being built to the same high specification as Villa Anna Maria, Villa Odysseus and Villa Penelope, which are under the same ownership/architect and which already receive outstanding guest feedback*. The web page for Villa Roberta therefore shows images of the other villas as an indication of standard and style.

Like its sister properties, Villa Roberta will sleep up to six people in three ensuite rooms, and as well as excellent cooking/dining and relaxing areas inside, it will offer fabulous outdoor living, including jaw-dropping sea views, an infinity pool, shady and sunny terraces and a BBQ kitchen.

Available for stays from 1st May 2019, Villa Roberta is already open for booking, with prices starting from just £199 per night (£1393 for seven nights), rising to £549 per night in August peak (£3843 for seven nights). Freelance Holidays offers any-day-arrival and any-length-of-stay (minimum five nights) for maximum flexibility.

This new-build villa and the signing of five more properties on Cape Liakis means that Freelance Holidays will offer 15 individual holiday homes here in 2019, plus a further 15 in other locations across the island: 30 Kefalonia villas in total. (Other destinations are Crete, Mallorca, Menorca, Sicily and Sardinia.)

“Cape Liakis has no sand, no bars and no through-road, making it one of the most peaceful spots on Kefalonia,” says Paul Fogg, managing director of Freelance Holidays, “yet guests will find tavernas, restaurants, markets and other beaches within five to ten minutes’ drive, and the airport is only 20 minutes away.”

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.

50% off Newly Built Villas in Kefalonia

Freelance Holidays has slashed the price of two brand new villas on the Liakas peninsula of Kefalonia by 50%.

Why?  Because they’re so new that no photos are available, which has held back early season bookings.

“Both villas are completed, both are being furnished now, and because they are under the same ownership as Villa Anna Maria in the same location, we know they will be equally fabulous,” says managing director Paul Fogg.

“But although we are illustrating the new villas with photographs of Villa Anna Maria, to give a sense of what they are like, we understand why holidaymakers have been reluctant to commit, so we are reducing the ‘per night’ charge in May from £199 to £99,” explains Paul.

That is £16.50 per person per night to be the first guests in a luxury villa with private pool and sea views. Both Villa Penelope and Villa Odysseus have three bedrooms to sleep up to six people, with three bath/shower rooms.

The setting of both villas, five minutes away from the village of Spartia, is spectacular and both have footpath access to a large rock platform where guests will find sun-beds and parasols: an almost-private spot from which to swim in the crystal clear Ionian sea.

Flights and car hire not included. Freelance Holidays’ policy of any-day-arrival and any-length-of-stay allows travellers to mix and match low-cost flights for flexible and great value holidays.

Twin villas for family harmony….

For families, or groups of friends, who like to holiday together – but require an element of privacy and independence – villa specialist Vintage Travel reckons that it has the ideal solution with Villas Meltemi and Levanta on Kefalonia.

These identical stone-built properties – with commanding views over the entrance to Fiscardo harbour and neighbouring islands such as Ithaca and Arkoudi – sit side-by-side on their own terrace, with a shared private pool situated between them.

The cottages, new to the company’s portfolio for 2017, are tucked behind stone walls on the private, gated Casa Vento Estate.  Each sleeps four in two en suite bedrooms and all principal rooms have glass doors onto the rear terrace with its breathtaking views.

The picture postcard port of Fiscardo – with its waterfront restaurants and impressive marina is just four kms away and several excellent beaches such as Foki and Alaties are within easy driving distance.

As an example of price, a seven-night holiday in April is priced as £804 (for both properties), rising to £3026 in peak season.

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

September Villa Deals on Kefalonia, under £30 per person per night

Freelance Holidays has reduced September rentals on selected Kefalonia villas by 10%, so couples and families with toddlers can now enjoy a September holiday from as  little as £23 per person per night.

The offers are on detached properties around Spartia and Lourdas on the south coast, away from mass market resorts. Beautiful beaches, friendly tavernas and ripening harvests can be enjoyed without the crowds, while the clear waters of the Ionian Sea are still a balmy 25C.

Villa Minetti was completed just six weeks ago and will undoubtedly be a popular choice in 2017 so September is a great opportunity to ‘try it for size’. The six-person villa has Mount Aenos as a backdrop, with views of the Ionian Sea. The beaches at Lourdas and Trapezaki are both no more than five minutes’ drive away.

Contemporary in style, both inside and out, there are three ensuite bedrooms and the private pool has a covered, furnished terrace with outdoor BBQ and shower.  September rates are just £159 per night, or a few pence under £27 per person per night.

On the Liakas peninsula five kms from the tavernas of Spartia, Villa Kephalos enjoys jaw-dropping sea views. The lovely pool area includes a covered dining terrace, a poolside pergola with outdoor seating, loungers on the sun terrace and a stone-built BBQ handy for both the dining terrace and villa kitchen.

Three bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, and an open-plan living area provides plenty of space.  Priced on a ‘per night’ basis to enable travellers to mix and match durations with low-cost flights, this works out at less than £23 per night when six share.

Other discounted Kefalonia villas include Villa Dimitra, in the same area as Villa Kephalos, which sleeps six and costs from £23 per person per night in September, and Villa Marianna at Lourdas, a two-bedroom villa for four from £29 per person per night.

Prices do not include flights or car hire.
