Some kind words from our visitors.

Amazing villa, has everything you need, pool is amazing.

The views are incredible. There was 10 of us staying for a friends wedding and it worked perfectly. We didn’t hire a car so used quite a lot of taxi’s which was fine, they’re €10 to sami. Adrian and Jackie couldn’t of been more helpful.

Thanks for a lovely stay

Our stay at the Walnut Tree Villa was absolutely incredible!

We had our Wedding in Sami and the house was perfect for us and our close friends. Everyone had perfect accommodations for sleeping and plenty of room to hang out in the living rooms together. We really enjoyed the use of the pool and laying out in the sun. It was fun to go out and pick fresh fruit to eat off of the trees. Adrian, from management was very helpful during our stay. We had the best time! Really recommend!

Family wedding in Kefalonia

My family visited Kefalonia for a wedding nearby. The villa was perfect for all the family to spend time together from my father 80 years old to the grandchildren who are young adults. They had the upstairs apartment and the oldies had the downstairs and this worked brilliantly . The managing agents were very helpful and the villa and ground were very well kept.

Wonderful Villa set in rural Sami

Visited The Walnut Tree villa and had a fantastic stay. The villa is set in a rural location which makes for a very peaceful and relaxing break. The villa is very well appointed and laid out over two floors. The outside area is well kept with plenty of chairs and loungers around a good sized pool with dramatic views of the surrounding mountains. Inside, the sizeable kitchen is well stocked which meant that you weren’t always having to wash up your glasses and mugs! The bedrooms were all good sized and beds very comfortable. Although the villa is situated in the countryside, it is only a 5 min drive into the town of Sami with it’s bars and restaurants.

We had a wonderful and relaxing time and are already planning on returning!!

We have made so many memories we will treasure forever!

My new husband and I booked this villa for our family and friends as we were getting married on the island. The villa was perfect for the whole party and worked amazingly for getting ready on our wedding day.

We cannot thank everyone at The Walnut Tree enough for everything they did to make us feel so welcome x x

We had a large group (11 people) stay – and were thrilled with everything from the location, to the view, to the overall accommodations. The property manager was friendly and responsive, and the host checked in with us often, and even assisted us with our Private Chef by meeting him ahead of our stay. We loved everything about this and would go back in a heartbeat.

Thank you for hosting us in this lovely house. Everything was perfect and we did not miss anything.  We have left you some fine wine from Romania and beverages for you to enjoy!

The villa lived up to our expectations.   

We were a family aged 5 to 77 and we all enjoyed the villa and the facilities on offer.  Of course, the pool was a great hit with the children.  It is ideal depth.  Adrian and Caroline were efficient friendly and knowledgeable about the area.  A fabulous holiday. 


Thank you!

We spent 2 weeks at the Walnut Tree Villa and couldn’t have asked for more. The villa itself is extremely comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect for exploring such a beautiful island and Celia could not have been more helpful during all of our communication in the lead up to and during our holiday. I would highly recommend!


We couldn’t have had a better stay, Celia was incredibly helpful with the bookings, recommendations, advice and contacts. Caroline and Adrian were also very helpful making arrangements during our stay. We had fantastic weather; the villa feels so secluded and private yet so close to everything you need.


We visited Sami in late May, and we booked the Walnut Tree Villa. It was a fantastic choice, and the Villa was amazing. It was so well equipped for all the family to have a great holiday and the facilities were second to none, the swimming pool, bikes, table tennis and boules would keep the family amused and the area is lovely.
