Client Reviews for Melanthi

We had a fantastic holiday staying at Melanthi in Maganos. Cannot fault a thing, the house was perfect with stunning views and the location is where we have stayed previously so it was good to be back. We love Kefalonia and will definitely be returning again. We are impressed with Vintage and especially Mandy and the very friendly and welcoming locals . Thanks very much for an amazing holiday! It was tough to leave the house and island.

The villa was superb. Excellent location with amazing views - the pictures did not do it justice. The Vintage Travel Rep was also excellent. Very passionate about the island - she gave us some great recommendations and was extremely helpful in booking an excursion for us. 10 out of 10 for knowledge and eagerness to make our holiday special.

i think Vintage Travel are an outstanding company. We used you many years ago and would definitely book a villa with you again in the future. Our local rep Mandy was delightful - good fun and loads of local knowledge to pass on. She clearly loves the island and her job.

Your representative in Kefalonia, Mandy, has been complemented by previous customers. We endorse every good comment made. She was charming and helpful with a wealth of local knowledge and advice. We certainly felt that she went the extra mile to make our holiday such an enjoyable experience. Thank you Mandy! Melanthi is a fantastic villa in a great location. The owner Stamatis was attentive without being intrusive. Our visit coincided with Greek Orthodox Easter and Stamatis and Tonya showered us with traditional Easter fare. The close proximity of Maganos village with it's traditional charm and the convenience of mini-markets and tavernas meant that dining out and restocking the fridge were a just a pleasant stroll away. We very much enjoyed the wonderful scenery and visited numerous coves, beaches and seaside towns that make this area what it is. We have travelled with Vintage Travel before and will definitely do so again. If there weren't so many other wonderful places to visit we would certainly go back to Melanthi and will certainly recommend it to family and friends.

We have had a great half term week here. Lovely villa- fantastic view and boys have loved the pool. We came to Assos 9 years agao, pre-children, and have really enjoyed re-visiting places such as Assos and Fiskardo with the boys. Have also loved discovering small local beaches and bays- Dafandi and Foki Bay were favourites, but also Emblissi and impressive crashing waves at Alaties when the sea was choppy. Weather changeable as to be expected in October- some glorious sunny days but also thundery rain. The sunset view taverna became thunderstorm view taverna! The local taverna in the village- Ionio- very welcoming and delicious moussaka. Thank you to Mandy for particularly helpful tips on shortcut roads on the island! We would love to return.

We have both had a horrible year and just needed a wonderful holiday. This has just been the tonic we needed. A fantastic villa and fabulous views. Lovely and peaceful and no traffic, it’s been a dream. It has been lovely and sunny and a perfect temperature for us Brits who aren’t used to the heat. Maganos has everything you need and the Ionio taverna is really great, lovely food. Greek night was good with traditional music and dancing. Fiscardo is a must. Explore all the little beaches nearby. So quiet this time of year. Don’t want to go back to the rat race. Will come again

Yes, Villa Melanthi is excellent. A comfortable well-appointed house. Very good location, so quiet and peaceful. Also being a pleasant 10 minute walk away from the village made that easily accessible on foot. Good for shopping (fresh bread in the morning) and staggering home after a carafe or two of the local wine. Our week has been blessed with the most amazing weather- 7 days of cloudless skies and uninterrupted sunshine. Finally some clouds are bubbling up- time to be on our way home! P.S. Mandy is the perfect rep- very helpful and cheerful.

Fantastic house- I think it's the best we've had! Mandy is amazing!

An utterly magical place. The villa has stunning views and every element needed for the best experience of this unique island. The location couldn’t be better; shops in Maganos, beaches Alaties and Jerusalem, and of course the wonderful Odisseus taverna and spectacular Acqua Bar. Mandy was a brilliant rep; so friendly, helpful, attentive, with a genuine passion for the island. We’d come back in an instant. Tonya and Stamatis were brilliant hosts, on hand for problems and very friendly.

We’ve had a brilliant week here and absolutely loved the villa! It was even better than the one we stayed in last week in Skala. We’ve loved sitting in the shade of the big tree and looking at the beautiful view. Can recommend Reginas for hiring out a boat for the day and Assos is really pretty. Enjoyed some nice meals in the harbour restaurants at Fiskardo. Thanks to Stamatis and Tonya for the use of your lovely villa and to Mandy for her fantastic help during our 2 weeks here.
