Two weeks of paradise!
Father Ted’s is the place to go if you’re looking for a restful holiday in clean, comfortable accommodation with stunning views, near to excellent family run Tavernas, in a quiet ‘untouristy’ location, with access to beautiful, unspoilt beaches (and you don’t mind a few interesting hairpin bends!). The island of Kefalonia is truly delightful with very friendly locals, amazing food, and wonderful scenery! The Paliki peninsular is very uncommercial dotted with delightful villages (although the roads are very rough and narrow there is little traffic to worry about). The owners, John and Lesley, were extremely helpful and their knowledge and experience of the Island was very reassuring! If you’re looking for something authentic and unspoilt then Paliki and Father Teds is for you! We hope to return one day (soon!).
We really enjoyed our stay at Fr Ted's. The property is very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfortable and we slept very well. The stand out feature is the magnifielcent view. The house is fairly remote which is ideal if you want a chilled out holiday. Petani beach which is a short drive away is lovely with a really good taverna to have lunch. We had a couple of nice meals in the local taverna which is about a 15 minute walk in the little village of Rifi.
Many thanks for the review. For anybody reading this we never ask for these or get them from people who we know. The view is of course extraordinary whilst being safe. We have noticed this visit that a bush need reducing again to retain the full panoramic view and this will be done. We always try to make improvements and Father Teds will have an air-conditioning unit installed for 2019. Both Villa Kef & Father Teds will also have a cool box for beach use following a visitor request.
We do have plans approved for increasing the size of Father Teds and installing an infinity pool, but this will not happen for a few years due to funding as well as the Brexit outcome. It will then truly be 5*.
Thanks again - John & Lesley Simmons..
What a wonderful little villa, tucked away in the hills overlooking Lixouri (& beyond). It's an adventure just driving up the hill - 9 hairpin bends - but the views just get better and better.
Villa has everything you need and is obviously very well cared for. Patio is huge and has large table, comfortable chairs, bbq and by using the sail shades provided you can sit out there all day. So peaceful just listening to the crickets and occasional goat bells - the most relaxing holiday we have had in a long time!
Car is necessary but also needed to explore this beautiful island - traffic appears to be mainly tourists in no hurry. Make sure to get off the main roads and see the lovely villages and stop at local tavernas for amazing lunches.
Lesley and John were so helpful and even managed to work around our odd flights meaning we had a 16 day break - many thanks.
A better review than we could write! We are still amazed by the view and location every time we are in Kefalonia. Thank you!
John & Lesley.
Comfortable property with idyllic views
This was our first stay in Kefalonia and we were hoping that the views promised by this property were accurate. They were exceeded, absolutely breathtaking, there is so much to see of island life whilst relaxing outside the property, soaring eagles, local farmers herding their sheep and goats, fisherman in the bay. The position of the property is up on a hill in a very quiet location (perfect for unwinding). The facilities of the property itself were pretty much as we expected, good cooker, washing machine, radio, microwave etc. The bed was nice and comfortable and we slept very well. Not that anyone staying at this property is there to watch the TV, but if you are stuck in on a stormy night, we recommend taking some DVDs with you.
Taverna Atsoupi, up the hill in the nearby village (10-15 min walk), by far the best food we had on the island, authentic family run, serving grilled food, delicious and inexpensive.
The property owners were very helpful in providing directions, recommendations for what to do and where to go and answering any queries that we had. We are already hoping we can book Father Teds' again for a holiday next year.
Once again a great find, thoroughly recommend.
Steve & Alice
Steve & Alice, thank you. People are usually told to go to Skala, Lassi, or Katelios by fellow Brits but the Paliki and the the real Greek experience together with the quiet location of Father Teds and the views is something else. It takes our breath away every time we open the shutters. Thanks again. John & Lesley
Peaceful location with a large balcony with spectacular views.
A well-equipped apartment with a big balcony with fantastic views. The apartment is not near any other buildings and very little traffic so very peaceful. A car is a must but there are two nice tavernas a little walk up the hill or a quick drive away. There are some very beautiful beaches within 15 minutes drive and small shops in the local villages. We loved it.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Yes experiencing the view, the location, the special beaches, as well as sampling the relatively undiscovered Kefalonia on the Paliki peninsula away from the tourist areas is quite special isn't it. More improvements coming for 2018.
Kust / Strand:
U bent binnen handbereik van talloze rustige prachtige stranden, omdat autoverhuur wordt aanbevolen. Er is een waterpark binnen handbereik.
Reizen: Er is een zeer aangename reis van het vliegveld naar de villa, hetzij over de weg of met behulp van de aansluitende veerboot. Je bent ver genoeg van de luchthaven om geen lawaai en dampen te ervaren.
Afstanden: De dorpen Monopolata en Rifi beide met taverna's liggen op loopafstand en de stad Lixouri ligt op 12 minuten rijden.
Verdere details: Lixouri heeft alles wat u nodig heeft en als dat niet het geval is, is Argostoli een korte veerboot over de baai. Twee veerboten varen meestal elk half uur.
