A Luxurious Villa, set in the Spartia area, a traditional Greek village on the south-east of Kefalonia. The Villa is accessed via impressive wrought-iron gates and is surrounded by walls to all sides, providing security and peace. The plot of nearly 2,000 square metres (half an acre) guarantees your total privacy. Inside, the Villa benefits from unique vaulted timber ceilings, with sparkling chandeliers.
The large 11m x 4m pool, complete with Roman Steps, is set within a spacious paved terrace area, which leads onto the large traditional Greek style barbecue area, which provides ample work surfaces and serving areas for eating alfresco.
The Villa operates under the license of the Greek National Tourism Organization.
The lounge comes with a large corner sofa and a coffee table, Flat-Screen Satellite TV and CD player, a lovely featured fireplace, an air-con unit and access outside. The dining area comes with a wooden dining table with seating for 6 people.
The kitchen comes with an oven and hob with an extractor fan, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster and a dishwasher. There is also a washing machine and clothes dryer available.
The master bedroom comes with a double bed, bedside tables with lamps, an En-Suite bathroom and access to balcony which offers great views.
The 2nd bedroom comes with twin beds, bedside tables with lamps and an air-con unit.
The family shower room comes with a walk-in shower; sink in a vanity unit, wall mirror with lights and a toilet.
The En-Suite bathroom comes with a toilet and a sink unit.
The Villa has a spacious terrace with its own private pool which offers great views of the surrounding area. A car would be highly recommended for getting around unless you like to walk and check out the local sights.
There is a BBQ and an outside dining area so you can enjoy al-fresco dining and sun loungers if you just like to chill out by the side of the pool.
The Villa is peacefully located on a quiet lane, and is not overlooked by any other properties.
The closest amenities are 0.2 km away, the closest beach is 2km away and the capital of Argostoli is a 20 minute drive away.
There are beautiful beaches within a short drive including Spartia, St Thomas, Trapezaki, and Lourdata.
St Georges Castle is definitely worth a visit, if only to sample the delights of The Castle Cafe, the baguettes are to die for!
Drive a little further inland through a delightful landscape and you come to the monastery of St Gerasimos, the patron saint of Kefalonia.
The monastery is very conveniently located for the co-operative winery, where you can sample the local Robola wine, and buy a bottle or two for sipping later on the balcony!
Going further afield, the North of the island has a special atmosphere, with Assos being our favourite village. Go to Estiatorio Assos and mention Bob and Annette to Anthoula, and she may conjure up one of her special desserts! It may take an hour to drive there, but it's worth it!
Just fifteen minutes on from Assos, and you come to Fiscardo on the tip of the island, the only village with its Venetian architecture saved from the 1953 earthquake.
Just down the road from the villa is Pessada with the daily ferry to Zakynthos. We have never quite managed to make it to Zakynthos as there is always plenty to do on Kefalonia, and you have to get up early!
From Argostoli you can take the ferry to the Lixouri peninsular, which runs every thirty minutes in the summer, every hour at other times. If you're lucky you may see dolphins on the way.
Take a day trip to Argostoli and you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables at the market, sample one of the harbourside tavernas, and, if you're really lucky, spot one of the loggerhead turtles that have made their home in Argostoli bay.
*Our property managers live close by, and will be available to help should the need arise.
