Astro-holidays .... meet the Team

Paul Davis

Co-founder of
Paul developed his love of Greece when he visited Corfu on holiday and subsequently returned to spend a summer season on the island as a young 20 something - a distant memory as it was rather a long time ago! On returning to the UK he spent many years in the corporate world. Nowadays, Paul is the computer and internet 'technical' specialist for Astro-holidays as well as running the social media and enjoying a very 'hands on' approach with all the day to day activities of the business.

Judi Hunt

Co-founder of
The first time Judi spotted Agia Efimia she said 'Oooh, I've got a feeling'! We couldn't have imagined way back then that 2015 would see us celebrating Astro-holidays 10th Birthday, and still enjoying a close working relationship with many of the property owners and our taxi driver in Agia Efimia who we first began working with back in 2005. We've had lots of hard work but also plenty of fun along the way and been privileged to meet many lovely people who also share our love of Greece, especially Agia Efimia.

We were lucky enough to begin working with Ilias in 2005. Ilias works tirelessly and has spent many an hour waiting at the airport for guests to arrive when their flight has been delayed .... he never complains, nor do our guests when they arrive to find Ilias is still waiting for them! Ilias is also a goat farmer and his goats enjoy one of the most enviable spots on the island - just above the renowned Myrtos Beach.

Dimitra, taxi driver in Agia Efimia

Dimitra is Ilias's Daughter. Having studied at University she has now returned home to Kefalonia and is working alongside her Father with the taxi business. Dimitra is fluent in English and speaks the language beautifully. She always has a welcoming smile and loves meeting the holidaymakers and introducing them to her beautiful island of which she is rightfully proud.

Spiros is also a sheep farmer and, in our opinion, makes some of the best feta cheese on the island ....

Thanasis, owner of the Gavril self-catering villas in Agia Efimia

Thanasis is a true gentleman with a wonderful sense of humour. He is charming and sincere with an easy going disposition. Having retired some years ago, he returned to Kefalonia to build the four luxury Gavril Villas on the island where he grew up. Thanasis is the most generous of hosts and goes out of his way to ensure guests staying at his luxury villas enjoy the most memorable of holidays. Such a lovely man.

Location, Location, Location
Kiki and her Husband, Makis own Ritsa House. The village house opposite the sea is a popular choice. Until recently Ritsa House was Makis and Kiki's family home. The family have grown up and 'flown the nest'; Makis and Kiki have 'downsized' although still live closeby. They offer generous hospitality and a warm welcome to all their guests.

Dionisia Alisandratou

Dionisia (Denia), owner of Pelagia Apartments, is a lovely lady who speaks excellent English. We first met Denia many years ago walking through a village near Agia Efimia with her very handsome golden retriever dog who is now 12 years old. Denia loves animals and has recently given a loving home to two stray dogs. Denia and her family offer a warm welcome and fine hospitality to all their guests.


Makis is the owner of the Amalia Apartments, as well as Proprietor of a supermarket in the village centre. He is very much at the heart of the local community in Agia Efimia and is a popular character blessed with a wonderful sense of humour. He loves travel and has visited many countries during his short winter holidays when he is able to take time out to recharge after a busy summer season working all hours.

Andreas and Maria

Andreas and Maria, owners of Maria's Apartments, are a super couple who have made a big impression on their guests over the years. They offer a warm welcome with traditional Greek hospitality. Andreas is often to be found by the harbour enjoying his favourite hobby - fishing. He uses the the most basic of fishing tackle but always catches fish - his secret lies in the bait!!
