Interaction with guests
I will be available every day for questions, help or advice. My place of business is less than a kilometre from the house and I will be available in person or by phone.
A car is a definite bonus for this holiday but if you want a complete chill-out with no driving, then there are adequate facilities in the neighbourhood for your needs.
This is our home where we live in the winter months. We expect guests to respect our personal belongings and not to invade our privacy.

Smoking is permitted only on the balconies, not inside the house.

I live on a beautiful Greek island and run my own souvlaki/gyros restaurant in the summer. My (Greek) husband has a fish taverna right on the beach and we also have summer holiday rentals. I have a daughter who lives in Edinburgh with her husband and their young daughter and a son who lives in London and works in the music industry. I usually visit the UK twice a year and my family comes out to Kefalonia as often as they can.
My husband and I love to travel, especially by car and particularly enjoy seeing other countries and experiencing different customs and foods in non-touristy settings. Because of our work, we always take our holidays in the winter, usually in November.
