Villa Aria is truly beautiful, it lives up to the photos and description and more. After being greeted by the lovely Foula and introduced to the house and some of it's history, we settled in immediately. We had a wonderful week exploring Kephalonia and decided that the house definitely has one of the best views on the island. The house has been beautifully restored and has maintained much of it's original spirit while creating very comfortable, stylish spaces. The beds are excellent and one of the best experiences was waking up and opening the shutters to that breathtaking view. The house is set in a very peaceful small hamlet surrounded by unspoilt countryside and coastline with sheep grazing and is a short car ride to Assos or Fiskardo for shopping or eating out. We loved discovering the beautiful beaches in the area when we could peel ourselves away from the house. The water in the sea is wonderful for swimming (even at the end of October) and crystal clear. We were glad we had arranged to have the pool heated as this meant we could enjoy it too,as it might have been a bit too chilly without. One of the local cats adopted us for the week which only added to the feeling of being 'at home'. The house is very well appointed and we could not think of anything we would add to improve the experience. We all agreed this was one of the best Airbnb experiences we have had and we will definitely plan to come back again.
