Overview

About the property

3 large bedrooms, all ensuite, sleeps 6-8 plus cot

Villa Dias is located on the edge of the pretty village of Kaligata in the exclusive Livathos Region. It benefits from a large elevated garden site complete with shady olive and fruit trees and enjoys breathtaking views down to the Ionian Sea. Villa Dias has its own private infinity swimming pool (9m xx 5m) and is finished and furnished to the highest standard. It comprises two twin bedrooms and one double, all with luxury ensuite wetroom style bathrooms, and a large open plan living area with a modern fully equipped kitchen.

Covered terraces provide shaded areas from which to enjoy the beautifullylandscaped gardens and stunning view. We have designed Villa Dias to ensure that this beautiful uninterrupted view can be enjoyed from all bedrooms and the main living areas.

WI-FI internet access available.

Getting to Kefalonia: We can advise guests of which airlines fly to Kefalonia, and suggest websites to try.

At present, out of season access is via Athens, with an internal flight (or ferry journey) to Kefalonia.

About Kefalonia: Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands, unspoilt, very friendly, with a beautifully varied landscape.

The island's beaches offer something for everyone-sandy or pebbley, safe or wild, deserted coves or bustling, all with beautiful, clean azure seas. The beaches in the South of the island are generally sandy, and many are safe for swimming and provide excellent snorkelling.

If you need a bit more from your holiday than relaxing by the pool or beach then there are many places well worth visiting; villages such as Assos and the beautiful harbour of Fiscardo, virtually undamaged by the earthquake of 1953, the beautiful church of Agios Gerasimos, the Drogarti caves and Melissani Lake or a day trip to Ithaca.The dramatic Mount Ainos,1628m, and its surrounding National Park provides excellent walking opportunities, particularly in the spring and autumn, and is home to the island's native wild horses, eagles and osprey. The famous Robola vineyards are found in the nearby Omala Valley

Food and drink: Self catering on Kefalonia is a pleasure - the range and quality of fresh produce on the island is excellent. Local mini markets will provide essentials eg bread, fresh milk etc. For a bigger range Argostoli has daily fruit and veg markets with harbour front fish and meat also of a very high standard. In the main town there are a selection of food stores with a wider range of groceries including, if required, staples such as butter, baked beans and cheddar cheese! On each return to the island we enjoy revisiting favourite restaurants but can always discover a new gem. Numerous tavernas around the island offer simple grilled fresh fish and meat, pasta, salads and local dishes. In addition, particularly in Argostoli, there are more sophisticated restaurants to enjoy. Those with a passion for desserts will find many temptations in the island's patisseries.

For wine lovers there are several wineries on the island to visit and sample the local Robola grape.

Why Angela and Ian McClintock chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

The VIEW - we had visited many building plots before we found this one, after which there was no more debate.............apart from all the decisions about tiles!!

What makes this villa unique

The VIEW!

Early morning swim in the infinity pool with the smell of lavender blossom - before the kids are up!

Watching with sunset with a G & T.........

Reading your book under the shade of an olive tree.......

Wonderful villa. Had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa. Private. Spotlessly clean. Bit of an uphill hike from local restaurants. You'll definitely need a car. The property managers are lovely too. Very helpful and have some great ideas & tips.

A wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 11 days and had a fabulous time. The villa is in a lovely location, has a great layout and is fitted out with everything you could need. The pool and terraced areas get sunshine right through to late evening and have fantastic views across to the sea. The owners are very helpful and left lots of information about local restaurants and places to visit. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

Car: recommended

Villa Dias is situated on the edge of Kaligata in the exclusive Livathos region in the South of Kefalonia. It enjoys fabulous uninterrupted views across olive groves and cypress trees down to the Ionian sea.

Kaligata is a small traditional village, attractively maintained with many beautiful gardens full of Bougainvillea and Jasmine.

The nearest beach, Avithos-one of the island's finest and popular with Greek locals is only 1.5km away. It is a beautiful sandy bay with a taverna and restaurant and is very safe for children.

The island's capital, Argostoli is a 10min drive away. It is a bustling cosmopolitan town with a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Here you will find an excellent range of restaurants, from simple harbourside tavernas to more sophisticated venues and a range of boutiques and designer shops. The harbour hosts fresh fish and fruit & veg markets as well as many splendid yachts in the summer.

A comprehensive info pack is provided for guests.

Other Activities: Ten Pin Bowling
