We would appreciate your cooperation in the following:
1.Please leave the room in a reasonably clean condition and do not leave litter inside or outside the room.
2.Please do not through paper in the toilet as it creates serious blockage.

4.Please do not use the air conditioning while you have the window/door open.

6.If you think something is not working correctly in the room, please let us know and do not try to fix it by yourself.

Location, Platies, is strategic and comfortable to visit the whole island. Eleana is a very nice and polite person, she did find us a welcome gift: homemade marmalade, eggs, tomatoes, beers and water and suggested a lot of places/beaches to visit. Thank you Eleana for making our vacation special, we will miss the wonderful sea view!

We had an amazing holiday on Kefalonia. Eleana is the sweetest host, always ready to help. The studio is quite big, well equipped and with an absolutely amazing view! We give 5*****!

Our stay was fantastic, Eleana was really helpful with giving us information about things to do and even called up places to help us book our trips. (We did the sea kayaking from Argostoli and rented a boat in Agia Effimia which we'd definitely recommend.) The homemade jam was lovely and we were also given eggs, home-grown tomatoes and water. The room was simple but had everything we needed and the view from the balcony is lovely. The location is beautiful with nice beaches, shops & restaurants etc within a 10 min drive - as stated in the ad you definitely need a car to get around as its quite secluded and its extremely expensive to get a taxi (€50 for a 10min drive to a restaurant as they come all the way from Argostoli). The dog, Foivos is amazing, we loved him.

When we arrived Eleana was there to greet us and answer any questions. This was our first time in Kefalonia and we loved the island. Eleana gave us some home grown vegetables, home made Feta cheese including a demonstration by Grandma Athina on how it was made!! Eleana was very helpful in explaining the best places to go. There was access to a washing machine Eleana's parents and grandma were also very kind and thoughtful making us feel very welcome We were there for a week and all the towels and bedding were changed half way through, and the room cleaned. It is a quiet location with a very caring and thoughtful host. If you like walking there are lots of quiet beaches, however access can be a steep climb back !! Take lots of water We liked the beaches at the Monastery (Sissi, about a 2 minute drive with parking, but still a good walk down) and the beach at Mouda best. We would definitely recommend this accommodation

We really liked our stay at Kefeaonian Retreats. Eleana was a friendly host, always asking if we needed anything, providing us with cheese, tomatoes, eggs, water and good advice. And her dog, Foivos, was very cute. The room was basic, but good enough. We spent most of the time at the truly wonderful, spacious balcony, with fantastic sea sight. The 2km away beach wasn't accessible however, so we always needed the car to go to other beaches. A car is definitely necessary.

Living in a beautiful and quiet village of Kefalonia, Platies, I felt that this is a great opportunity and the ideal environment to meet new people from all over the world. Our place is a small B&B with amazing views to the Ionian Sea and the mountain of Ainos and belongs to my family. In 2016 we have also embarked in a new path organizing workshops and retreats to stimulate both body and mind.

I am looking forward to seeing you in our magnificent island. And I would be more than happy to share with you the great experience of living in nature, offering to you plenty of opportunities for self reflection and relaxation.
Our hospitality will make your stay an unforgettable holiday.
