About John Tapsas
My name is John Tapsas. I was born and raised in Australia from Greek parents. I came back to Kefalonia on 2000 and got involved with the tourism. I met my wife and we now have a daughter. My wife is also involved with the tourism industry. I love nature and I think Kefalonia is a beautiful island combining sea and mountain views.
John Tapsas purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why John Tapsas chose Livathou
In 2014 we built our villa and we are feeling very proud. It is a private villa with pool and is located in the beautiful village of Lakithra. Close to most of the beaches and 5 minutes away from the capital, Argostoli. Based on a peaceful location with breathtaking views. Perfect for relaxation. Our village has a taverna, pizza place, souvlaki place, bar, bakery, pastry shop, mini market, so you don't miss anything. All these are in a walking distance from the villa. The village is well known for Byrons Rock, with an exclusive view at the airport, the sea and Zante.
What makes this Cottage unique
In 2009 we made our dream come true.We built Villa Mandola. As all of our customers enjoy their stay,and feel like home,enjoy the facilities of our villa,we decided to built another one. This happened in 2014,as we built Villa Kantrillies. Offering the same facilities to our customers. The villa offers times of relaxation,at the barbecue area,by the pool,enjoying the views of Mountain Ainos and Saint Georges Castle. Relaxation and peacefulness are the 2 words that describe our property.

Beautiful Villa, Fabulous Island
We had a wonderful 2 week stay in this beautiful Villa, John and Madu were wonderful hosts with such attention to detail - we relaxed immediately - esp as we were collected form the airport with rental car waiting at the Villa. It was spotless and very quiet and the views are amazing. The outdoor space is large and sunny. The house has everything you would need. Thank for making our family holiday so wonderful.
Thank you very much for your beautiful review.It was a pleasure meeting you and your nice family.Glad you enjoyed your vacation.Hope to see you again in the future.
the best place on kefalonia
We really enjoyed our stay in the Villa. The owners, Yiannis (John) and Mado will do really everything to make the stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. On arrival the fridge was filled and a lovely meal was prepared by Mado. Location of the villa was perfect, however a car is needed. The island is really beautiful. We will be back!
We have just spent two fantastic weeks in Villa Kantrilles. We were welcomed by our host John at the airport and instantly felt we were on holiday. John & Mado are such lovely people and looked after us so well. The villa is everything described and more, you feel relaxed the moment you step inside. It is in a beautiful location with stunning views. There are some beautiful beaches, Ammes close to the airport is definitely worth a visit also Makis Gialos. A trip to Lixouri picking up the ferry from Argostli is a lovely day out.
We would not hesitate in recommending Villa Kantrillies to any of our family and friends and hope to go back there ourselves in the not to distant future.
Fabulous New Villa
We had a magnificent week at this brand new cottage style villa in Lakithra, Kefalonia. The owners John and Mado are the best hosts you will come across - they do everything they can to ensure your stay is first class. The villa has been beautifully created in a traditional style in a quiet location with magnificent views of the mountains and countryside from the back. The standard of the villa is very high and it feels homely and is the sort of place where you relax very easily. I can't recommend it highly enough - you will not be disappointed.
Wir haben im Oktober 2019 eine Woche nochmal den Sommer genossen. John und Mado sind so aufmerksame und liebenswürdige Gastgeber, wie es angenehmer und zuvorkommender kaum möglich ist, der Service (Flughafenabholung, Mietwagenbereitstellung, Willkommensmenu, gefüllter Kühlschrank, Abschiedsbrötchen an der Tür, Menüs zum Bestellen mit Frei-Haus-Lieferung, wertvolle Tipps u.a.), das Haus, der Garten und der Pool sind noch schöner, als die Bilder zeigen und Kefalonia ist die grünste, sauberste und lieblichste griechische Insel, die wir je bereisten.
Herzlichen Dank an euch, lieber John und liebe Mado!
