Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Greece - Mira's House

Villa sleeps 6/8, 2 private pools, amazing view, set in 7000 m² (1.7 acres)

Competitive discount 7-26 June 2016!

Contact us for more details !

A large and beautiful property set in extensive grounds on the west coast only 500m (as the crow flies) from the shore. Built to reflect a traditional island-style stone farmhouse, this villa overlooks dramatic scenery from the green, unspoilt hillsides, to the wide blue sea beyond.

Get away from it all in this secluded location with its views of stunning sunsets on the horizon. This cosy, comfortable, bohemian-style villa exudes warmth and character – this is not the normal soulless holiday rental.

Mira's House is spacious (260 m² - 2800 ft² - main villa and separate guest house) and laid out conveniently on one floor except for the large children's attic bedroom. There is a large pool in the garden (12m x 5m) a few steps below the main villa, and a smaller pool (3m x 2m), all set in 7000m² (1.7 acre) of natural landscaped gardens.

The keywords of this place are nature, serenity and privacy.

Mira's House is located in an authentic Greek hamlet with its tiny old church, down a no through road. Beyond the gate, Mira and her husband Dror, have built their dream family holiday home: a large, stylish, stone, island house.

Nature is wild here: ancient dry stone walls protect cultivation terraces, centuries-old olive, and tall, dark green cypress trees, and the land overlooks an amazing rugged bay of the mythical Ionian Sea. This unspoiled environment made the project of construction a true challenge: how to build a new house whilst preserving the local environment?

The house has been built to respect the tradition and style of the old local farmhouses, using ancient and traditional construction methods such as: wooden beams, thick stone walls, high ceilings, using antique roof tiles, old ceramic or stone floors, an antique sink, and so on. And Mira and Dror have succeeded!

Embedded in 7000 square meters (1.7 acres) of garden and private land ensures a very unique privacy.

The main house: 230 m2

Generously sized, the interior is warm and spacious. Every room, every corner of the house is open to the breathtaking blue and green scenery. The main living area - with the kitchen, dining and living room - is open-plan and spacious with large French windows opening to the terrace and views out across the hillsides and down to the bright blue sea, making it a refreshing retreat when the strong, Greek, midday sun invites you to take a break for a welcome siesta.

The large master bedroom, with its enormous bed, faces out to sea, and has an en-suite bathroom. There is a very large attic bedroom which can sleep up to 4 children. When cousins or friends joined the family, Mira used to add 2 extra beds, making a fantastic, sophisticated 'bed platform'. The bedroom, however, is also perfect for a couple, as it comes complete with en-suite shower room and 3 windows – 2 of them facing the sea.

The guest house: 30 m2

Situated a just a few steps from the main villa, the guest house has it's own private terrace and is surrounded by nature with views facing the sea. Its the perfect spot for people in love! It has a large double bed, en-suite bathroom, and coffee machine.

The whole property would provide very comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to 3 couples, or 2 couples and 4 children.

There is parking for 3 cars, and also a small basketball court.

Despite it's seclusion, the beautiful, lively, cosmopolitan fishing village of Fiskardo is only a 10/12 minute drive away. The local village of Maganos (where there is a mini-market and 2 tavernas) is just a 5 minute drive away. You can reach Fiskardo on the main road, but don't miss the smaller east coast route with its stunning views of our sister island, Ithaka.

Odysseus' is a traditional taverna by Jerusalem Beach in the bay below (3km by road, 5min drive). And Alaties Beach (5km by road, 7min drive), is a small cove with crystal-clear water, surrounded by dramatic rock pools. The owner of 'Acqua', the beach bar cum restaurant, is Italian – so make sure you don't miss it!

Please, contact me for further details, photos and availability.

See you soon under the Greek sun!

Located only 8km from the villa, Fiskardo is a beautiful, picturesque Greek fishing village on the northern tip of Kefalonia, the largest of the seven Ionian Islands. Fiskardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged following the series of large earthquakes of 1953 that raised most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia to the ground. Fiskardo, with its waterfront tavernas and bars, is simply a delight. Strict building regulations - which maintain the elegance of the Venetian architecture which lines Fiskardo 's horseshoe-shaped harbour - have created a magical setting that is one of Kefalonia's highlights. Traditional Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer. If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish, otherwise a stroll around the harbour will showcase some of the most luxurious yachts, many of whom are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the charm and tranquility of Fiskardo. Fiskardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective: the lights, the old buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants all combine to provide a magical Mediterranean atmosphere. Of all the villages of Kefalonia, Fiskardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening. The place to see and be seen.

Some other activities available locally: Sailing, scuba diving (PADI Dive Centre), motorboats for hire, horseriding...
