Aug 2011-We booked this as a lovely break for the two of us without the kids.  Unfortunately my other half couldn't go due to last minute work commitments.  So with trepidation, i decided to go alone on holiday for the first time ever!  Needless to say my concerns were completely extinguished on arrival.  The transfer is more like 5 minutes than 20, which is great. i then met Voula......this woman is amazing! There is no other word to describe her.  From the moment i arrived she mad me feel welcome and comfortable and at ease.  Dispelling all my fears.  The first thing she did was pour me a drink, which calmed my nerves.  Her daughter Esme is great to chat too and funny.  If you ever have the pleasure of staying with Voula and her lovely family, trust me, it is one holiday you will always remember.  I am going to go back next year and take my 7 year old son with me.  I caught the local bus to Argostoli, which cost 1.60 Euros.  The 15minute journey took me through Lassi.  When i arrived in Argostoli, i was amazed at the number of coffee shops! The harbour was so beautiful, the shops are varied, which was nice and made a change to the usual tourist shops that sell tat.  Though there were a few of these, the number was relatively small.  The last thing i should mention, i usually take cleaning wipes when i go on holiday (as i like to make sure things are 'really' clean), i never even opened the packet!! Spotless apartments! A HUGE thank you to Voula and her family. Love Tricia Chambers

My husband Richard and I spent another fantastic two weeks at the Marketos back in June.  This was our fourth visit and yet again we can't fault the fantastic hospitality of Voula and her smashing family.  Barbecue night was great with wonderful food and really good company. Once again we made some new friends, who we hope to met up with again.  Can't wait until we can make another return trip.  thank you Voula, Makis, Nicky and all the family.  Look after yourselves and hope to see you next year.  Best Wishes Ann & Rich

we returned from kephelonia on thursday 23 june 2011, having spent a wonderful 2 weeks staying at the marketos apartments.
voula and family could not have been more hospitable. my wife and i have never experienced a holiday
where the hostess has been so overwhelmingly concerned with the comfort, wellbeing, and welfare of her guests.
not only is voula the owner, she is the cook, barmaid, and cleaner. she rushes around keeping the
apartments in an immaculate condition. the pool and bar area being simmilarly kept.
the family's regular bbq's are something to behold, ending up with voula trying to teach the guests
the art of greek dancing (in my case, unsuccesfully). on these occassions all of voulas family sit
down with the guests to eat and everyone has a great time. with dennis providing a very eclectic mix of music. on the rare occassion when voula is not behind the bar, then daughter ezme steps in to provide an equally proffessional and friendly service. well done ezme, and good luck for the exam on sunday.
finally, if you need to know anything, or need something (like car hire etc.) then no one knows more than voula. we would highly recommend marketos appartments, and will be returning to enjoy the hospitality
of voula and family once again. heartfelt thanks for a great holiday. love a nd best wishes, trisha and'spotty 'tonyxxx

We stayed at Marketos Apartments for a week at the end of July. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. There aren't many places where you can go from the airport to the pool (with a beer  ) in 30 minutes! The surroundings are peaceful, nice & very clean apartments, lovely pool and great food!

We shall be back next year for more of the same.
Thank you to Voula and all her family for making our holiday fantastic.
Karen, Tim & Lucy Field

We stayed here for the second time in September 2009 - absolutely lovely apartments, very clean, with beautiful gardens. The lemon trees around the pool and the scent of jasmine in the evenings are just wonderful, and Voula and family are so friendly and kind - we will be back!

It is difficult to find different words to describe a holiday with Voula and family. The appartments are spotless.The location is by the main road ( so easy access)  but which cannot be said to be busy. The rear by the pool is rural. A view over olive trees, lemon trees and vines, with the occasional plane and is south facing. So, glorious sunshine all day.

The marketos family are most welcoming. The pool bar is open all day and at night it is a wonderfull environment for an relaxing drink. Voula's prices will beat any bar in the area, and no long walk back.
With luck you will also enjoy a party night!
We have stayed at these appartments for a number of years and look forward to returning.

Vicki F          10/10

Just arrived back from yet another wonderful holiday at the Marketos studios.  Cannot begin to tell anyone who is reading this just how wonderful the studios, and especially the Marketos family, are.  The only way is to visit here for yourself.
Thank you Voula and all your family for making our annual visits to Kefalonia so special.  We will be back next year to spend another wonderful holiday with you.
Thank you also from both June and Liz xx

Just back from a wonderful two weeks at the Marketos apartments.  Voula and family cannot do enough to make you welcome and look after you.  Many of the guests had stayed before and I dont blame them.  The Apartments are very clean and comfortable.  Towels changed every other day.  There were plenty sunbeds (not the most comfortable though, I must admit) and the pool was great.  Svronata is a lovely village with enough good restaurants and supermarkets but no tatty shops!  Three wonderful beaches within 30 mins walk.I would recommend these apartments and Kefalonia to all my friends and relatives. 

Thanks Voula and family for eveything and we hope to see you again sometime.
Chris and Geoff

  Hello ,,

   We Had A Fantastic Time Here In 2006. Even Though We Stayed For A Week It Felt Like A Month Because Vula Was Very Kind And Made Us Feel Welcome! We Will Be Coming Again To Marketos Apartments On The 15th July 08 And We Cant Wait. The Apartments Were Extremely Nice And Cosy I Loved The Spiral Staircase Aswell. The Bar , Pool And The Other Surrounding Area`s. Every Day And Night I Enjoyed Here And I Will Not Forget That We All Had An Amazing Time Here. Also It Was Nice The Night When We All Got Dressed Up And We Came To The Downstairs Bar And We Has Fun All Night Long Especially When Ange And My Dad (David) Were Dancing Haha!. Well We Cant Wait To Come And Have Another Fantastic 2 Weekk Holiday With You! See You Soon!! XX

This is our third time staying with Voula & family. We keep going back because we cannot imagine any other place would offer the same as Marketos does. Rooms are quiet and spacious, with a lovely bar and pool. Voulas hospitality is wonderful and she even stays up with us until all hours whilst we played monopoly. We certaily will be back in 2009!

Thanks Marketos family for another wonderdful holiday.

we have been here four times since may 2004 and just returned from a two week stay 11th-25th may2008.

we grudge having to share this gem with anyone else but it would be a shame for others to miss out on this wonderful family and accomodation.
thanks again to voula,mikie and family for the warmth we received and will certainly be back soon to take off where we left.
love to all.......................helen & bobby   ( c*mbernauld...scotland ) .

This year was our second stay with Voula and family and once again we had a fantastic time. We felt very comfortable in the large air conditioned apartments and lovely pool and bar. Near by are great restaurants and bars and Voula and family ensure that you every need is taken care of. A top class holiday and we will be back next year for sure!

   Have just returned from our 3rd stay with voula and family.

once again 10/10. Made to feel so welcome. voula dropped every thing when i had an accident and took me to get x-rays and the doctors, making a scary experience very easy.
i was so glad she was there .
if any one is looking for a quite relaxing holiday this is the place to be 
thanks again voula and gang
see you next year

My girlfriend and I have just returned from Kefalonia last week after an amazing time, and lovely weather. We stayed with Vula and her family.  The appartment was basic, however very roomy and great swimming pool and accessable to nearby towns and within 3 minutes from airport. However not affected by planes.Our last day Vula and her mother cooked for us it was the best meal we had eaten all week. Very hospitable, friendly. Great for anyone who wants relaxing, quiet holiday. Would love to return.

Elaine T          10/10

We have twice stayed with Voula and her family and we felt like we were one of her family.  We loved every minute of our stay with her.

As far as I am aware she is no longer with a tour company, our first visit to the Marketos was with Libra Holidays and then she went independant.
I do have a tel no for Voula, if anyone would be interested, then please email me on and  I will pass it on.

Ann N          10/10

hooray I've found this site at last.  My husband, daughter and I stayed with Voula family in 2003 and had a wonderful holiday.  We went back in 2004, just Caitlin and I then as Richard couldn't get away from work.  Again Voula and her family made us fell really at home.  Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a great holidy in Kefalonia.  Mama's wonderful cooking at the welcome party and barbecue.  Always a warm welcome in the bar and always ready to tell you the best places to visit.

Hope all is well
