In 1998, after living in New York for more than 25 years, Stelios & Eleni returned to their birthplace of Kefalonia in an attempt to trade the "hustle & bustle" of a busy city for the tranquil and stress-free lifestyle of a Greek island. They had achieved their dream of raising a family in America and decided to go into retirement. Nearly a month into this "retirement", they decided they could not completely release themselves from that busy lifestyle. Stelios realized he had become an example of that old adage, "You can take the boy out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the boy." They also both agreed it would be nice to share the beauty and peacefulness of Kefalonia with others.
On a perfectly situated piece of land, left to them by Stelios' father Aristomenis, they decided to build "Aristomenis Studios." A dozen studios that would attract visitors of Kefalonia that were searching for that same tranquil and stress-free lifestyle. While relaxing on the spacious balconies, their guests became enamored with the scenic views of Mount Aenos, Lourdas and Trapezaki beaches and a gorgeous view of Zakynthos. Within the next few summers, they began to accommodate visitors from all over the world. Many guests, who had now become friends with the entire Aristomenis family, found themselves longing to return to the beauty of the island and the hospitality of Aristomenis.
In 2003, the Aristomenis family added a new building along with a pool and snack bar to further accommodate their friends and to make room for new friends. Today, you can book your next holiday directly through this website and experience the beauty and tranquility of Kefalonia and the hospitality and comfort of Aristomenis Studios. Stelios, Eleni and the Aristomenis family will be there waiting to greet their friends!
