Overview

About the property

Detached villa in the South coast near Katelios With 3 large double bedrooms

Villa Valentina is set in its own grounds on a elevated position on the outskirts of the historical village of Ratzakli between the resorts of Katelios and Skala. Views from the balconies and terrace areas are breath-taking looking out to sea and the nearby island of Zakynthos surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea stretching across the horizon in front of you. To the rear there are olive groves and the mountains beyond with footpaths taking you to other outreaching villages.

Set in its own private and gated grounds, the closest neighbour being 200m away in the nearby village of Ratzakli, which also has its own cafe, this is the perfect location for those wanting seclusion but still within a few minutes walk to Katelios and Ratzakli and a very short drive of the beaches, restaurants and shops.

The villa itself is built over three levels. The open plan split level living area has a fully fitted modern kitchen which is very well equipped with all the appliances and utensils you would need. There is also fine dining area with table and chairs. On this level is a very large luxury shower room and a large master bedroom with ample wardrobe space, Dressing table, TV leading onto a large verrandah. Steps from the dining area lead down to the lounge which is on the lower level. This is comfortably furnished with large comfortable seatees and also has Satellite TV with most channels, full Wi-Fi, DVD player, games and books. This further leads onto a large covered patio with outside dining and large purpose built barbecue area.

Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, (one large double and 1 single bed and the other room housing twin beds) one with en-suite shower room, the other with an en-suite bathroom with 3/4 bath and shower over. All of the bedrooms and the lounge areas have large patio doors leading onto either a terrace or balcony with table and chairs for you to relax and enjoy the views.

The landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn with plentiful flower beds containing a variety of shrubs and tropical plants and fruit trees (depending on the Season, we welcome guests to pick fruits and bananas). There is a separate garage in the grounds where you will find a washing machine, additional sink and beach umbrellas. The large pool terrace with its private 11 x 5.5m pool and Roman steps is a great place to relax and unwind, with amazing views out to sea. There are plentiful loungers and tables, chairs and umbrellas here. The pool also has a hydrotherapy massage jet in the pool if you are not quite relaxed enough. For the 2016 Season there will be further covered areas in the pool area with additional comfortable settees.

About Sharon Walters

Both my husband and I work for local government. We are pleased to offer our holiday home to guests. Our villa is a rather special place to us which we enjoy sharing with our family at holiday times - this is reflected in the beautiful furnishings, making it a home from home and is so much more than a typical holiday let.

Sharon Walters purchased this villa in 2003

Why Sharon Walters chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

After visiting the island of Kefalonia some 12 years ago and being already well travelled, we knew that Kefalonia was a place that we wanted to visit again and again. With its un-spoilt beaches and the locals very welcoming, its culture and history, it made each and every stay more special.

Finding a piece of land virtually by accident only days of being advertised it was meant to be and here we are. Having a plot of land and a bespoke house taking in all the breath taking views of the sea and beyond to Zante, Kefalonia is a very special place to us and we hope that we can share with our guests the love we have for the island.

We hope you enjoy your stay and look forward to welcoming you again.

Sharon and Roger Walters

What makes this villa unique

Spectacular sea views to the front of the property and beautiful mountainous views to the back of the property and olive groves. It's a great location to explore the island. Good walking routes are directly from the villa or, for the more adventurous, there are fantastic unmade roads leading up to the mountain villages which are great to explore on foot or by quad bike. It's also within easy distance to the best turtle beach on the island, Kaminia, where we enjoy seeing the baby turtles hatching and making their way to the sea. We have an exceptionally large pool, with hydrotherapy jets and large Roman steps which is a great place to relax.

A short distance to Katelios with its good selection of fish restaurants and local Greek restaurants, beach bars. It has a good beach and is a great place to eat and the children can play on the beach in front of you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in your villa and would love to come back one day. We really couldn't find any useful feedback for you - good location with views, lovely pool, comfortable furniture, beds etc, cooking facilities were good (the 1or2 times we didn't go to a Katilios taverna).



We will certainly be recommending you on as well; we have your website saved!



All the best

A very large villa that exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Great location, above the turtle beach, great house with lots of places to eat. good barbecue and very comfortable beds. Clean, much more that a usual rental villa - it was a home from home. The children loved all the games and we could catch up on e-mails as well as it had high speed Wifi. We'll definitely be returning.
