New to the rental market for 2018, Almond Cottage is a unique artisan stone cottage which has recently been lovingly and tastefully restored, providing every modern amenity all encompassed within a traditional period setting.
Situated in a beautiful & tranquil location within the small village of Keramies, the cottage is only 5 minutes from the nearest beaches (amongst the most famous in Kefalonia), and a mere 10 minutes from the bustling capital Argostoli and 10 minutes from the airport.
Internally, Almond Cottage comprises an open plan kitchen/ sitting room, with double doors opening out to the garden, which benefits from stunning mountain views………the perfect spot to relax and enjoy breakfast in the mornings and share a gin & tonic in the evening.The large bedroom suite leads off the sitting area and benefits from a king size bed and a large open plan area, complete with day bed, wardrobe and dressing area. The bedroom has an en-suite WC and basin. Adjacent to the bedroom is a further main bathroom.
Double doors lead out to an enchanting external private garden, plunge pool (ideal for cooling off on those hot summer days) and extensive patio areas. A unique experience is the stone built external shower area which sits to the side of the patio areas, is totally private with hot & cold water facilities and has proved to be very popular with our guests who like to enjoy a little bit of freedom and an Al Fresco shower. The garden also houses a built in area with traditional ovens, one for cooking those BBQ treats and a 2nd one for pizzas, should you feel adventurous. The garden also houses a delightful ‘Artist Studio’, which is an area set aside for our guests to make full use of it’s quiet & private space and comprises a lounge area with day bed, sink and washing machine.
The grounds of the cottage are fully walled and private, and the garden boasts an array of fruit and nut trees, herbs and flowers, and is a truly serene environment to wind down, maybe read a book, and totally relax during your stay with us. There is also a private parking area.
