About the property

Spacious villa with pool, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a short walk to Xi Beach

Come and stay in our beautiful home during the summer months, set in unspoilt countryside but within walking distance of the beach. This stunning property with brand new swimming pool, sleeps eight people. In the main house there are 3 double-bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (one en-suite) a large open-plan living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen and 2 large verandas overlooking the sea and the island of Zakynthos. There is a spacious hall with a beautiful piano and a marble staircase leading to the first floor. The living room has a large flat screen tv, dvd player, music centre with a large selection of cds, three sofas and free wi-fi. The dining area has a large table or alternatively you can eat on the veranda or outside on the patio. Each bedroom has a balcony and all the windows in the house (including balcony doors), have fly screens. All rooms have air-conditioning units.

If you feel the need to keep fit while you are on holiday, you can use my cross-trainer!

The new Pool House Annexe comprises a self contained apartment with toilet and shower room and a fully equipped kitchen. The pool house also contains a bar, for our guests' convenience when using the pool and patio and for outside dining. Our large patio includes a shaded area, a barbeque, tables and chairs and sun loungers. Adjoining the patio is a brand new swimming pool with built-in jacuzzi. In our lovely garden there is a 16 hole mini golf course, our own vineyard and a number of fruit trees. The surrounding coutryside is simply stunning with olive groves all around and views across the valley stretching several kilometres.

The famous Xi Beach is less than one kilometre from the villa, within walking distance, and there are also bars, tavernas and restaurants in the local area. There is a mini market in the nearby village (800 metres) and Lixouri, the island's second town is only 5 kilometres away.

This is an ideal location for a family holiday. Xi beach is a long, sandy beach, safe for children, but with all kinds of watersports and nearby there is a water park with slides and inflatable rings, providing fun for all ages.

Kefalonia is a stunningly beautiful island and a car to see the island is a definite bonus. Car hire can be arranged locally with a pick-up at the airport. However, if you want a complete chill-out with no driving, then there are adequate facilities in the neighbourhood for your needs.

I will be available every day for questions, help or advice. My place of business (a souvlaki restaurant at Xi Beach) is less than a kilometre from the house and I will be available in person or by phone whenever needed.

We built the house in 2004 for our own use and we designed it with comfort and convenience in mind. We have had many visitors over the past 10 years and are confident that it provides everything that you could wish for to make your ideal holiday dream a reality.

About Carol Martin-Antonellou

My husband, Spyro, and I live in the property during the winter months but move out during the summer to be near his place of business. We built the house in 2004 but have recently added the pool and other outside facilities. Spyro runs a fish taverna and I have a souvlaki restaurant at nearby Xi Beach.

Why Carol Martin-Antonellou chose Paliki

You will not find a nicer, more comfortable and homely place to stay on the whole island. It is our own home and consequently everything in the villa is designed for comfort and convenience. The location is fabulous and the views from the villa are stunning. You will have total privacy, peace and quiet and yet you are near enough to bars, restaurants and other beach-side facilities to be able to walk there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Les and his family were delightful people who were respectful of my property and left the villa in a clean and tidy condition. I would recommend them to any future host and would have no reservations in welcoming them again as my guests in the future

Lovely Villa in Beautiful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious villa, ideal for group or family on a fantastic island. Carol the host was very helpful and extremely understanding when we had some family issues. Always plenty of good advice on where to go on the island and quick to help with any queries. I can't thank her enough for her help and support during our stay. Throughly recommended!

Lovely, large and airy, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

A large and very well equipped villa. Excellent air conditioning and brilliant facilities including wifi and great satellite TV to keep the kids amused. Carol, the owner, is really helpful and very knowledgeable and always on hand should you need her. The pool was a god send and we saw some very interesting wildlife whilst here.

Very highly recommended.
