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.
Terms and Conditions
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' applies to bookings for arrival between 1st May 2021 and 31st December 2021 only.
If there are restrictions advising against travel to your chosen destination country, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
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.
The premium paid for 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-commissionable.
The premium can be removed from the basket if not required. If removed during booking, you still have 7 days from confirmation to add this back on if needed.
For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival, this premium can't be added or removed after booking.
The 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-commissionable.
Cancellation of the booking will also result in loss of the premium paid.
You should ensure you have adequate comprehensive travel insurance to protect you in cases of cancellation for any other reason including, but no limited to, being unable to travel due to airline failure or cancellation, being quarantined for or diagnosed with Covid-19 or unable to travel due to work commitments or restrictions upon return.
Normal Terms and Conditions will apply for ancillary products such as car hire and transfers etc.
All other standard booking terms and conditions apply.
This beautiful two-bedroom villa is set on a huge plot of land, with stunning views of Kefalonias' turquoise waters and emerald landscape. Not usually afforded to a two-bed property, Villa Votsalo has a large lap pool, manicured lawn and bordering crimson bushes. The view stretches as far as the eye can see across green pastures, with Kefalonia’s rugged hills serving as a backdrop. At night, the pool lights up a dramatic shade of turquoise.
A large shaded dining area and traditional Greek BBQ means that souvlakia by the pool are a must. When you’re not sunbathing on the stone deck, the inside of Villa Votsalo is a welcoming ‘home from home’. With nautical features, a blue and white striped sofa and a wooden beamed ceiling, the living room is reminiscent of the sea. Both the master bedroom and twin come with their own bathrooms and are tastefully decorated.
Set in the laid-back area of Avithos, Villa Votsalo is just a short distance away from the beach and local restaurants. Expect unspoilt natural shores and family run tavernas, where you’ll be met by a welcome smile.
Usual day is Wednesdays.
Mid-May - Mid-September is fixed, flexible at any other times.

Kefalonia International Airport (EFL)
Avithos is the ideal choice for your Greek Island holiday if you are looking for fabulous beaches, great tavernas, beautiful coastal and mountain scenery, easy walking on quiet country lanes but still just a short drive to the island's capital.
Situated on the southern coast of Kefalonia, just a few kilometres from the airport and Argostoli, Ai Avithos is located in the area known locally as Leivathos – made up of picturesque villages and some gorgeous sandy beaches. There are also a good few attractions in this area such as the Castle of St.George, atop its acropolis and offering superb views all over the area – well worth a visit as is the Monastery of St. Andreas.
Avithos beach is a long strip of sand, with some shingle or stones depending on the weather of the previous winter – looking out to the tiny islet of Zeus and backed by two excellent tavernas where locally delicacies and fresh fish can be enjoyed. The beach itself offers a super beach bar with snacks, cold drinks and coffees, and comfortable sunbeds are available to rent. The village of Svoronata – just a 15 minute walk from Avithos offers more restaurants, a couple of bars, a petrol station and the local minimarket so all necessities are close to hand. Even the local “drive in” in supermarkets are all within a short drive of this area, but once back at your villa all is peace and quiet whilst you just enjoy the wonderful views!
Lovely villa, with a great pool and spacious gardens. Brilliant location - private, quiet, yet within a short walk of a lovely small beach with a fab beach bar and two very good tavernas. Not far to drive to other good beaches and supermarkets. We would go back

Has to be the best Villa in Avithos, spectacular sea and mountain views. Lemon and orange trees and rose bushes in abundance. Walking distance to a spectacular beach and excellent tavernas. The pool was beautifully clean, as was the house, would recommend this villa most highly and will return for sure.

We have stayed in quite a few of your villa's in various places and they were all lovely but this one was by far this best. It was stunning from the gated entrance to the internal decorations. Everything supplied from the soaps to the kitchen appliances, television, wi-fi was excellent. The beds were very comfortable and the staff that came in to change towels, swimming pool duties and the gardeners were excellent. We cannot emphasise how much we enjoyed our holiday ? thank you very much

The glorious view from the beautifully tended garden. The cool colours of the interior, the variety of outside seating and eating areas, the peacefulness of the location.

Loved the location and the spacious plot. Even though you were fairly close to other villas you did feel completely isolated. Very peaceful.

A lovely villa in a great location. A good choice of restaurants within the local area and a superb beach on your doorstep. Plenty of supermarkets to choose from all within a 10 minute drive. Resort quiet but does have a lovely beach bar which had a great vibe day and night. Villa clean and well equipped with everything you would need. Pool amazingly warm too. We will definitely return.

A wonderful and well-equipped holiday villa, overlooking the sea and in a quiet rural location only five minutes walk away from a splendid beach. We have stayed at Votsalo many times and hope to visit many times more, as it is our perfect holiday retreat.
