Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Lixouri - Villa Anelina
2 bedroom villa in two floors, sleeps 4 to 6 in a typical greek village
Villa Anelina is a traditional stone-built house, located in ‘Chavdata’, a quiet, hospitable village in Kefalonia Island. The villa was built according to the original Kefalonian architecture that prevailed in the 19th century and characterized all the living mansions of the era. It is fully equipped for a top-quality self-catering staying and is surrounded by spacious verandas and a well kept garden.
The villa was built in 2003 and mostly decorated with an authentic, antique-style furniture. It was first used as a holiday house from the owners (Rigas family), who gave all their heart into styling and looking after the villa. Later, it was qualified and licensed by the ‘HTO’, i.e the Hellenic Tourism Organization, complying with all standards, rules and comforts for a Holiday Rental. Live like a noble from another era, combining all comforts with a traditional, hospitable location. Enjoy your privacy, away from the fuss of the over-crowded touristic areas.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Tasos K Rigas
The Rigas family is involved with Rental Property services since 2003. Having already built a summer holiday resort (Porta del mar) in the neighbor Zante Island on 2002, they are very experienced on looking after guests and offering best quality services.
In 2003, Tasos and Pavlina decided to found a villa on the ruins of the old family house that collapsed during the grand earthquake in 1953 and literally leveled Kefalonia Island. Out of honor to Pavlina’ s father who had recently passed away, and inspired from the beauty of the location, Tasos took it personally, contributed with the building and made a dream holiday house for him and his family. The following years Tasos and Pavlina gave all their heart into styling and furnishing the house according to the old Kefalonian tradition and managed to revive its glory the villa once had as a living mansion.
Settled now in Zante Island, the Rigas Family is running their small hotel, and turned Villa Anelina into a self-catering Holiday Rental, which is approved and licenced under the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism. They are always on hand for any information you might need and will make sure that their representative in Kefalonia will welcome you, show you to your villa and will be always happy to support your questions.
