We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

If there are restrictions in your destination country preventing you from being able to travel to that destination, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is automatically included in the search results price on the solmarvillas.com website.

This gorgeous little gem of a house is just 150 metres from the beach at Fanari - the Light House area just outside the capital town of Kefalonia, Argostoli. Tucked into a pretty walled garden at the end of a small lane just off the coastal track, Villa Fanari is a short walk to everything. The nearest restaurant and minimarket are just 5 minutes stroll, and the very elegant water side bar/restaurant of Katovothres a little further. A 20 minute stroll along the tree lined street will bring you to the centre of Argostoli itself with its wealth of shops and restaurants. An ideal location.
Newly renovated from an original property, Villa Fanari has loads of character – the accommodation is divided into two buildings, with a shaded walkway joining them. The large, open plan kitchen/dining room is finished in country style and offers a large range with built in BBQ grill. This area also offers a small sitting area and flat screen TV.
The bedrooms are situated in the adjacent building and can be accessed separately or interconnecting. Both have large double beds and en suite shower rooms – one of the bedrooms also has a single day bed that could sleep a 5th person (probably more suitable for a child) From these bedrooms you directly access a large shaded terrace with comfortable sitting furniture looking over the garden and pool area. A charming shaded dining area is situated under the fruit trees just outside the kitchen (very handy). Although the original property is an older building it has undergone a full modernisation and the interior feels light, modern and very stylish with a sophisticated twist. This would be an ideal house for two couples travelling together or a small family.
Usual day is Sundays.
Mid-May - Mid-September is fixed, flexible at any other times.

Kefalonia International Airport (EFL)
With its signature lagoon, bustling port and harbour area, and fabulous choice of local restaurants, the capital of Kefalonia offers the chance to experience a real Greek Town. Large, graceful squares invite you to while away the daytime hours with a cool drink under the shade and enjoy a bit of people watching, while the fabulous water front provides the ideal spot for your evening promenade. A walk across the footbridge towards the other side of the lagoon is not to be missed, and there are plenty of local shops to delve into along the way!
Just outside the capital you'll find beautiful wooded areas along the Fanari coastline looking across to Luxouri, as well as the much photographed lighthouse point. This area is home to some of the most elegant summer houses and was the favourite swimming spot for Argostoli residents to swim. The coastal road winds between the high trees along to the tourist resort of Lassi with its two superb beaches.
The villa was exactly as described, the location was absolutely wonderful with a café at the top of the lane serving delicious food. It was so peaceful and the garden was so pretty. We felt at home immediately.

Villa Fanari is a beautiful villa located between Lassi and Argostoli Made up of 2 buildings Building 1 had 2 beds and 2 baths. Really comfortable beds and good power showers. Building 2 had a well equipped kitchen with a tv (Netflix!) and a large dining table Outside a nice couple of seating areas and a pool. Please be aware though this pool might not be suitable for young children as it is quite deep . The owners were very nice and eager to please our only bottle opener broke ! Disaster and a new one was delivered within the hour. Beach towels were provided and a maid service came in half way through our week which we were not expecting to have. Just be careful of the surface around the pool as this can be quite slippery Overall a nice modern villa. Do try the taverna down the unmade road excellent service typical Greek food a good value for money !

Walking distance to several gorgeous beaches. Next door to an excellent restaurant with very reasonable, high quality food which is used by locals and tourists. We also bought water, drinks and ice creams from here as they were very accommodating. The villa was very well equipped and very thoughtful to have basic condiments in the food cupboard such as tea, coffee etc. Also although I brought my own washing tablets, there was washing detergent and fabric conditioner there. The cleaner changed our bedding regularly and the pool was cleaned at times to suit us. The decor and furnishings were very tasteful and everything was in excellent working order. I thoroughly recommend staying here.

What an absolute gem of a villa. Situated in a beautiful garden, the house is stylishly decorated with two large bedrooms, each with its own beautiful bathroom. While the bedrooms are adjoining, each can be accessed by its own French windows allowing complete privacy per room if needed . The kitchen is housed in a separate building reached via a wonderful seating area surrounded by fruit trees and flowers. A hammock and wicker chairs and tables as well as inflatable pillows and plenty of sunbeds ensure full relaxation around the gorgeous infinity pool. Villa Fanari is only a 5 minute taxi journey from the hustle and bustle of Argostoli so it really is the best of both worlds; absolute tranquility but with the vibrant Greek nightlife a stone's throw away. Sheer bliss, Fabulous Fanari!
