My name is Dimitris and this is the house where my mother’s family lived in until 1977 before they moved to Athens. The house stayed in the family and since today it remains a vacation house for us and for our guests.
Kefalonia is the place where my heart lies in and I am grateful that I am able to spend my holidays at such a place. I am a thirty year old engineer currently living in the Netherlands but I grew up in Greece and spent all of my summers and other holidays at Kefalonia.
I am glad I can share the house with guests and I hope that they will also discover why this is an exceptional island and develop the same connection as me and my family have.
