I live in London so will not be there to meet you - sorry. Happy to chat at any point before or during your stay, to sort out any potential issues.

Other things to note

My home is a perfect spot for artists, bird watcher and walkers. Honey buzzards circle at eye level, a migrating hoopie returns every year in spring. The local walks are plentiful. In the local mountains you can find Cyclopean walls, churches, waterfalls, a neolithic tomb recently excavated and endless artifacts. It goes without say that the Cephalonian light is perfect for artists and photographers.

This is the second time we have stayed at Jukia's place in Kefalonia. Nothing beats the peace and quiet of this rural retreat - you feel as though you are away from it all with a 360 degree view of mountains and sea! Easy car access to Poros with its range of shops and tavernas.

Julia house is the last one in the village on the top of the hill. The view to the mountain and the sea is stunning. The house is cozy and very well equiped. The communication with Julia was easy and seamless. It is an artistic house designed with plenty of love and style. It offers the perfect relaxation to people who want to enjoy nature, silence and beauty.

We have just stayed at Julia's place in Tzanata for a few days and have had a wonderful time. Really off the beaten track- stunning views, wood fire, secluded spot yet only five minutes drive from the town of Poros, with its shops and tavernas. It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with everything we could have needed. Julia was the perfect hostess and responded to our queries immediately. And what a beautiful island this is! Couldn't have asked more from a late Summer break.

Julia was very communicative during our stay. There was a surprise storm which affected most of Greece, including her place. Unfortunately, we weren't able to use the water freely because the storm damaged the water lines. Julia tried everything she could to get the pipe fixed, but in the end it wasn't able to be repaired during our stay. Luckily, there was enough water for basic necessities. The setting of her home is amazing and if you are looking for seclusion and some peace and quiet I would highly recommend her place. The driveway is a little rough and rocky, but for those wanting an authentic experience, it's worth it.
