We enjoyed our stay at Wine Growers Cottage very much thank you. This was our second villa holiday through Pretty Greek Villas to Fiscado in Kefalonia and the service that you provide has been excellent. The owner paid for our first night in a hotel as repairs to the villa had caused a power failure when we arrived. We felt that was a tremendously generous thing to do. With this villa the only irritation was the WiFi which required the owners to keep topping it up and for us to keep asking for this ...... Unlimited WiFi is expected nowadays and the younger generation in our family expect to be able to use You Tube and Netflix while on their holiday.
When we arrived we expected Kefalonia to have been adversely impacted following the Cyclone and this was unfortunately the case. There was much damage to the forestry with many trees down, land slides affecting roads and most of the beaches in the North had been put out of action with Foki and Jerusalem beaches and their Tavernas devastated. This was sad to see, but the resilience of the Kefalonians to get up and running again was impressive. The end of season brought the inevitable closure of businesses leaving limited options for eating out in the evening, but with 3 or 4 local restaurants open and the supermarket, we did not starve!
We are pleased that we went to have a great holiday and support the tourism economy. Only one travel blip on our return as Greek air traffic control strike caused a 5 hour delay at the airport on our return.
We will travel with Pretty Greek Villas again.
Lara S. arrived 14 September 2020
We are already missing the villa very much! Of course, we are very happy to share our feedback about our stay. Regarding the villa, it really was even more beautiful than we imagined, in an idyllic spot, well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. Please pass on our thanks to the owner for the generous welcome goodies left out for us - it really made our stay feel special. We have already recommended the villa to friends and family, it is spectacular.
June M. arrived 24 August 2020
Thank you very much for your email. We had a lovely holiday in Kefalonia and thank you so much for all your help before the trip: organising the car hire and boat trip in particular - both of which worked perfectly. The only slight niggle we had with the cottage was there was no washing machine which we misunderstood from the website. However Marie Louise sorted out some cleaning for us so no big problem. The cottage was lovely. Simply wonderful location and view. Pool lovely and clean inside. Everything was very nice and we would have no hesitation in using you again. We have already recommended you to someone else.
K. Simpson arrived 5 May 2019
The Wine Growers Cottage on Kefalonia was so ideal that we have booked another week in late September. Please don't change anything.
Su & Keith arrived 20th April 2018
Dear Marie Louise and Ben
Sadly, we are back from our lovely stay in Greece! Despite the ferry strike, fully booked flights, demonstrations in Athens and having to spend extra time on the mainland - we had a simply wonderful time and loved it!
It was so disappointing to arrive into Kyllini and discover that there was a ferry strike but our host at the Fragos Garden Studios was so hospitable, helpful and accommodating - Kostantinos made it all much less painful. He really couldn't do enough to help and make sure that we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend a stay at his dear little hotel to anyone! I must also mention that Vasillis was wonderful. He met us and drove us safely and well, even stopping for us to find an ATM so that we could draw money. Great guy.
Then your help and concern for us was very reassuring and we want to thank you so much for that. Our unscheduled stay in Athens turned out well as we got to explore the Acropolis and the new museum on a beautiful spring day without the intense heat that often goes with that visit.
The lads that met us at the airport in Kefalonia at 10pm with our (upgraded - thank you Katerina) car were so friendly and helpful but despite all their directions - and your written ones, we got horribly lost trying to find our way onto the right road. Partly this was because the English on the road signs either doesn't reflect at night or at times was scribbled out with graffiti ! However, we were helped and met by Freddie from the Wine Growers who personally escorted us to our cottage. We couldn't have done it without him! To find the fridge stocked with breakfast and beer and wine was above and beyond!
What a delight that little stone-cottage is! In every sense of the word but summed up best perhaps by my husband who on waking the next morning and seeing that view said, "I think we've just found a little piece of heaven!".
Thank you for your part in making our anniversary trip so special.
You have probably gathered that we are owners of a Travel Agency - we specialize in customizing trips, mainly to Africa on photographic safaris - and we love to find little gems like this! I have sent folk to your website before and can with confidence say you run an excellent portfolio. We look forward to our next stay already (personally!) and to matching only our very special clients to one of your special properties should the opportunity arise!
All the very best for a good summer season and thanks again!
Our best regards
Simon Boughton arrived 30/07/2016
We had a lovely time thankyou and like all holidays it was all over too quickly and it's a pain being back at work ! The cottage is very nice and suited us perfectly, the whole development is very tastefully done. It certainly meets the criteria for being private and isolated, just what we wanted. Thank you for arranging the car hire and boat hire, it all went very smoothly. One comment that might be helpful is that probably three days boating is enough for a week, and that the boat hire company is more than happy to book it on separate days, it isn't really necessary to block book the whole week in advance.
Cressida Hughes arrived 14/05/2016
Many thanks for your message. We had an absolutely wonderful time. It really was heavenly. We will definitely be calling on your expertise again!
While the house was beautiful, Suabe fantastic and Freddie a really welcoming and generous host.
We had a wonderful time and were particularly grateful to Freddie for allowing my sister to camp in the garden. Please do pass on our thanks.
Thank you again.
Sophie Huc arrived 08/09/2015
We had a lovely time in Wine Growers Cottage. It was beautifully decorated and quiet! A real jewel!
We also had the visit of the owner, Ms Josephs, who gave us very good tips and suggestions. The housekeeper, Swab was great too, and his food is delicious and very generous!, highly recommended.
Thanks again for all the assistance and we will definitely come back to your site for other holidays!
Matt Smith arrived 01/09/2015
Many thanks for your email - strangely, I had just emailed Pretty Greek Villas regarding the deposit, when your email arrived.
We loved the Winegrower's Cottage and thought it was very peaceful and beautiful place.
Ann Jopson arrived 13/06/2015
We had a really lovely time last week in glorious sunshine
The cottage was beautiful, just perfect for what we needed.

John Rochford arrived 24/05/2014
We had a wonderful holiday thank you.
Pretty Greek Villas service - 10 out 10 - Excellent, very friendly, good advice, passed on all our requests to the property owner.
Villa location - 10 out 10 - Perfect, as described, secluded, private, peaceful. The little beach just down from the cottage was absolutely wonderful.
Daily visit by the goat herd was a real treat.
Fiscardo - 9 out 10 - Superb restaurants, very pretty, very friendly.
We would definitely use Pretty Greek Villas again !!.
Thank Anna and Marie-Louise for their help. We would be pleased to hear their suggestions for next year.
Same again, private and secluded (all-over-tan most definitely possible !), peaceful,
must be essentially "Greek", 10-15 minutes away from quality restaurants, 20-25 degrees in late May early June, we don't mind a modern villa rather than rustic.
Hannah Kornicka arrived 17/05/2014
We've just got back from an amazing week at Wine Growers in Kefalonia.
Wine Growers was perfect - every single detail of the house was
wonderful and Shuabe, the fantastic house keeper looked after any requests we
had. You have looked after us beautifully through every step and we very much look forward to
enjoying holidays with Pretty Greek Villas for many years to come.
We really did love it and spent a wonderful time enjoying a bottle of rose with freddy and his lovely wife up at their main house.
Wishing you a great summer and we look forward to another trip with you again soon
Karen Butler arrived 28/06/2014
Sorry for the delay in responding to your e mail.
Our experience with Pretty Greek Villas was nothing short of perfect - we received first class treatment all the way from our first enquiry last January to the end of our vacation.
My husband and I were desperately in need of a break having worked hard and not had a vacation for 4 years so we needed a place to relax and unwind with no distractions and interruptions, we certainly found that, it was exactly what we needed.
The cottage was idyllic, Suabe (apologies if that is incorrect spelling) was always there when needed and very unobtrusive, I have recommended you to so many people. We love the Greek Islands and have only visited Kefalonia so far but now we have found a company who know the islands well and are so very helpful we may explore further next year with your recommendation. You have achieved the perfect balance of being friendly but still professional in your dealings with clients.
Thank you so very much for 2 weeks of pure escapism and relaxation.
Francesca George arrived 06/05/2014
Thank you for your email - the Wine Grower's Cottage is charming, well kept, and a haven for anyone who wants peace and quiet to loll and read.
We unfortunately had unseasonably chilly weather while we were there - it was warmer in England! - so didn't swim, but the pool and the little beach looked very nice.
With best wishes,
Douglas Paine arrived 21/06/2014
Thanks for your email. We had a wonderful time at Wine Grower's Cottage. It's a lovely spot, and just what we were looking for.
We had a delicious meal cooked by the housekeeper Schwabe, who is fantastic. I'm sure we'll be returning!
