Having visited many of the Greek
Islands over the years, we knew when
we decided to invest in a home abroad it would be in Greece! We were in the
process of deciding exactly where in Greece
when we visited the beautiful island
the wonderful beaches and the dramatic mountain scenery made the decision for
With the invaluable help and guidance of Stuart and
Linda of estate agents Kefalonia4Us we purchased a plot of land in Keramies in 2004.
We began to put together a plan of our ideal villa
but unfortunately our first choice of builders turned out to be an
unwise one and we encountered a number of delays, as the months
dragged on we were losing hope of ever achieving our dreams
then the A.E.C. group were
recommended to us.
Panagis and the A.E.C.
Team listened to the problems we had encountered and immediately set about
submitting the required documentation to get things moving. Plans were
approved within weeks and we received detailed pricing for the whole project,
including pricing for any optional extra work which could be provided,
incidentally the cost quoted remained constant throughout. A
schedule was presented and building commenced in August 2006.
We were very impressed by Panagis' communication
skills from the beginning, he sent us photos of progress of the build every
week like clockwork, always accompanied by an account of works carried out that
week and planned for the following week. I visited Kefalonia
in September to choose floor and wall tiles, kitchen and wardrobe designs,
bathroom fittings, roof tiles, lights etc etc there
seemed to be an endless round of decisions to be made, but Panagis was always
there to offer advice (when asked) and make the whole process enjoyable
and stress free.
Villa Diana was completed in February 2007, only
six months after building work commenced! We drove out with our furniture
in a van and arranged to meet Panagis at the Villa, where he and another A.E.C. staff member, Fotis showed us around. We were stunned by the high
standard of workmanship and attention to detail, having ascertained our
intentions for the villa to be used as two apartments sometimes, they had put
in many extra features to facilitate this very easily, all within the arranged
budget. Fotis visited us several times during
the next few days, we found him to be extremely helpful and accommodating, we
only had to ask once for any (small) jobs we would like to be done and he
arranged for them to be carried out immediately! We will without
doubt be using their services in the future when we have saved up for the pool
to be added!
We would have no hesitation in recommending
the service provided by Panagis and the A.E.C.
Team to anyone, their professionalism throughout has restored our faith in our
decision to choose Kefalonia as the location for
our beautiful Villa Diana. Thank you so much for helping us realise our
Sharon and Mike Williams.
