About the Owners
We are Jean and Andrew Hoare. We are retired and, in 2007, we decided to buy a home for our retirement on the island of Kefalonia in Greece. We spend most of our life on the island, although we originate from the UK.
We soon found some beautiful land on which to build our new home. Being outside a town, Greek law required that we had to buy at least an acre to build on. We built two villas on the land, which are spaced well apart. We live in one and the other smaller one-bedroom villa, Villa Athena, was designed and built just for the purposes of holiday or vacation letting.
Our own villa is at a good distance from Athena, because we did not want to appear intrusive. However, we are at hand to answer our guests’ questions and to give advice if the need arises.
Over the past twelve years we have welcomed nearly150 couples of varying ages. Some of them were honeymooners, other were celebrating a birthday or a wedding anniversary, but most just came for a "get away from it all" holiday. They could be as active or as relaxed as suited them.
