just to help you make a decision whether Villa Diana would be suitable for your needs, here are reviews from previous guests.
  • Sandor Pall and family Review #8677352 "Fun in the sun" Ill start with the villa. Its awesome. Looks and feels right at home in the island countryside. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and big pluses go to the pool and terraces. The neighbors, Tim and Joy have been both fun and helpful. Kefalonia is beautiful, especially in June, and we were fortunate to see most of its attractions. We (a group of 8) gladly recommend the villa and the island. Thanks again Sharon.

  • Sharon Just to say thank you for a great holiday in your Villa. We all had a wonderful time and I will recommend your villa and Rory Bond (the chef) to my friends. Kind regards David & Brenda Shelley
  • Hi Sharon & Ionian Weddings We all found the Villa to be a very suitable location for a wedding venue. There was ample space & the location is truly beautiful. There did not appear to be any issues with the catering or the entertainment & we had both Greek Band & Greek Dancers, there was plenty of space. We had a party of 20 on the wedding day & have had no complaints, the wedding ran very smoothly & I can comment as the Bride that we had a the best day, it exceeded all our expectations! Everyone of our guests said this was the best wedding they had attended & the venue was beautiful, I cant say anything better than that. In our opinion this should be listed as an appropriate wedding venue, the balcony is where we had our ceremony & comfortably sat 20 guests & ceremony table, celebrant, bride & groom. I havent got round to thanking\updating anyone yet including the hairdresser & makeup artists & Ionian wedding planner Dimitra who also did a fantastic job & contributed to an altogether amazing issue free day. In our opinion there would be nothing required to improve this Villa, in fact the pictures on Villa Renters website do not do this villa justice as it looks much more majestic as you approach from the gates. Maybe additional images could be taken. Car hire is necessary in this area but that was well documented & all our requirements were catered for, Sharon included lots of additional information regarding places to visit, eat, car hire etc. Thanks once again to Ionian Weddings, Dimitra & Sharon Williams - Venue Villa Diana Keramies, Kefalonia for a truly wonderful day & happy memories. Thanks & Regards Mark & Carolyn Sinclair
  • Hi Sharon and Mike Just wanted to say that we had an absolutly fantastic holiday at "Villa Diana". Thankyou so much for all your help regarding booking the villa and with all our questions we bombarded you with. Your villa is beautiful, very well set out and furnished well, plenty of equipment and well the pool made our holiday for all of us I think. We all loved the island as well and we are sure some or all of us will go back sometime, still loads to explore although we did travel to a lot of it. My grandchildren loved watching the goats coming down from the fields and running along the road, did get a few in the garden one night!! We would certainly recommend your villa to anyone who was visiting Kephalonia, and those that have seen some of our photos all say it looks fantastic, and I say yes it was! Well once again, thankyou for letting us hire your villa, and if we ever go back we will see if it is available again. Marian and Dave Reed and family

Review #15569346 “Villa Diana Kefalonia in Idyllic Countryside Setting with Large Private Pool. ” What a perfect place! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We had a large group of us that stayed in the Villa. Our first impression was of the caretaker of the home who lived nearby, she greeted us with a great big beautiful smile. Anytime we needed something, if we did, they were right there to assist. While in Greece we had rented 2 different villas, and this one knocked it out of the park. We had a full kitchen, and plenty of room for everyone. We were mostly family with a couple friends. We were close to the beaches, restaurants, and everything else. We rented cars and mopeds, and got around the island just fine. I would highly recommend this villa. My uncle who owns a house a mile away wanted the villas info for other people to rent when they come out. By the way, the owner of the villa went the extra mile to make sure we were well taken care of, a very sweet gal! Cesar Date of arrival 29 July 2016

La casa è senz'altro più bella dal vero che in foto, il giardino è grande e ben tenuto così come la piscina sempre cristallina, la casa è super confortevole, c'è proprio tutto quello che serve per un soggiorno perfetto. Il servizio pulizie poi completa il confort. Gentilissima Joy che si è occupata di noi con molta attenzione e gentilezza. Molto raccomandato.( translation ) Home is definitely more beautiful than real pictures, the garden is large and well maintained as is the pool crystal clear, the House is super comfortable, there is everything you need for a perfect stay. Housekeeping then completes the comfort. Dear Joy, who took care of us with great care and kindness. Very recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to review Villa Diana, we are all so pleased you had a great holiday and hope to see you again in the furure. Grazie per aver dedicato del tempo per rivedere Villa Diana, siamo tutti così soddisfatti che si aveva una fantastica vac

First impressions are important, as you arrive to Villa Diana with elegant gates, driveway and spacious gardens, an illuminated house and pool which like a beacon glows in the valley, it wasn't difficult to find. Arriving as we did late evening, how welcoming to find in one of the dual kitchens, the fridge and cupboards stocked with all the basic essentials including fresh milk, eggs, butter, bread etc to get our holiday started. It's the attention to details that add up to make your stay relaxing and stress free, including regular house keeping.


One of the things I always appreciate is quality Wi-Fi bandwidth, for keeping connected with work (sad as that sounds). I was pleasantly surprised to find unlike so many other Villas, (especially in the countryside) that Villa Diana boasts strong Wi-Fi, we were getting a solid 6Mpbs, which is sufficient for the basics and streaming and to keen our teens happy with their social media accounts.


We didn’t really fully utilise Villa Diana’s full capabilities as half our 6 kids are away, even so, the bedrooms, furnishings and facilities, you’d want for nothing. The large pool, glows enticingly evening at night with the pool and patio lights, sun loungers make for some very relaxing days. We particularly liked the balcony and the covered shade beside the pool for eating al fresco.


With my wife being Greek Cypriot, we always measure up every other Greek Island and Kefalonia is beautifully stunning, was our first visit to the island. It’s people are friendly and very hospitable, with a mediterranean cuisine which is always a delight, no wonder life expectancy is so high in these cultures.


Sharon and her team are wonderful hosts, with great advice and suggestions, nothing was too much, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Diana and will be recommending to our friends with the hope we might return in the not too distant future also.

Villa Diana proved to be the best villa we have ever stayed in. It is a beautiful property set in large gardens with a lovely pool and both a terrace and a balcony for eating in the shade. The inside of the villa was clean and spacious and extremely well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the linen change mid week was great as the weather was very hot! There were pool toys and balls for the children and the boys loved having goal posts for playing football! The mountain views from the villa and its setting were wonderful. Emma who looked after the villa, was lovely and helpful giving lots of tips of where to go.
We could walk to two tavernas both serving amazing food at reasonable prices, Anna’s tavern was about a 7 minute easy walk through the village and Elionas (The Olive Tree) was about 10 minutes. Supermarkets were only a few minutes away by car and we found Avithos beach to be the best one for its safety, sandy beach, sun beds and cafe. SO many places to visit in this beautiful island, Assos, Fiskardo, Melissani Lake, Drogorati caves and locally five minutes away, St George’s Castle. Here we found Kastro’s cafe an amazing place for views and the wonderful food served up by the incredible friendly Spiros and Stelio with great banter to go with it! 
So, all in all this holiday at Villa Diana was a huge success and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

The pictures do not do this villa justice. This place was breathtaking! Wow! This is perfect for couples traveling together, family and a group of friends. Close to so many beaches and 15 minutes to the capital for some nightlife. We will forever remember Villa Diana. Thank you!”

Chris Fragiskatos New York. August 2019

Emma was a great host , always on hand, helpful with information as to where to go and best places to eat out. The villa was great for a family holiday, quite area, close to some good restaurants and the supermarkets. We all enjoyed days laid around the pool and soaking up the sun.  The property was clean and well equipped, the pool guys came three time during the week, with clean beds and towels half way through the stay.

We are a family of 10 & we have had a lovely holiday accommodation staying at Villa Diana, this villa has everything that you need for a perfect holiday, the location was perfect, near to the airport & near to all the lovely bays & good restaurants, although a car is needed to get around & some of the roads are narrow but if l should want to holiday in Kefalonia Again I would certainly book Villa Diana. Sharon Williams is very efficient & her manager in Kefalonia was really helpful.
