About the property

Villa 2/7 people, Infinity edge pool, magnificient view down Myrtos Beach

'Nel Cielo' (in the sky) is the right name for this villa. It could be also 'Above the clouds'. It’s probably one of the most unique properties in Greece. The property is perched high up on the cliffs above Myrtos beach with magnificent views down the coast of Kefalonia to the village of Assos.

A villa with the Wow! factor

They say that the most important attribute of a house is its location and this villa has one of the best locations that we have ever seen. Hanging some 300 metres over one of Europe's famous beaches this villa offers some of the most breathtaking views that the island - and the whole of Greece - has to offer.

The villa has been refurbished by its new owners to a marvelous elegant/cosy style.

The Interior :

Walking through the gated entrance, the sense of privacy within the property is apparent. One is struck immediately by the uniqueness of the architectural design and interiors, from the contemporary lines of the building to the dark metallic paintwork combined with floor to ceiling glass and sliding windows to take in the breathtaking views.

The main living area features a central fireplace surrounded by built-in divan sofas covered in ethnic style fabrics that soften the starkness of the charcoal grey, metallic paint work. To the right of the main living area is a TV/chill-out room which is divided from the living area by a large glass window

The modern styled kitchen includes a traditional wood-fired oven as well as a sophisticated array of modern appliances suitable for a property of this distinction. The kitchen is a great place for cooks to entertain whilst guests enjoy each other’s company in the elegant dining area.

The bedrooms (Sleep 7 people)

-3 double bedrooms with bathroom in suite in the main villa

-1 single bedroom in the guest house with bathroom in suite.

-Separate chill-out hut at the low end of the garden with a sofa-bed and an open-air showerDaybed (old renovated shepherd’s stone house

TV flat screen in all bedrooms except in shepperd’s house

To the left of the living-room area is a double bedroom with en-suite facilities that benefits from large, sliding glass windows which lead out to the first of many outside levels. On this level, there is an elegant seating area with in-built benches with colourful pillows and scatter cushions. On the upper level , there is a master bedroom suite with double bed and impressive metal fireplace There is an en-suite bathroom and dressing area, as well as a reading desk and private terrace. On this level, there is also a second double bedroom with separate bathroom area. Large floor to ceiling glass windows take in the spectacular view. To the rear entrance of the property is a lovely guest house furnished similarly to the main house which contains a bedroom with single bed and en-suite bathroom facilities

The Exterior

The outside of the property is equally impressive as the interior with the crowning feature being an altar-esque, infinity plunge pool seemingly offering the bathers up to the gods! From here one can relax above the clouds to one of the most awe-inspiring views in the Ionian Islands - 270 degree views uninterrupted over miles of coastline right out to the infinite horizion. Below the pool, a path leads through a profusion of indigenous herbs and plants along the ridge until three throne-like chairs are discovered and beyond, a stone ‘hideaway’ with a day-bed to relax in surrounded by the immensity of nature.

A villa with the Wow! factor

They say that the most important attribute of a house is its location and this villa has one of the best locations that people has ever seen. Hanging some 300 metres over one of Europe's famous beaches this villa offers some of the most breathtaking views that the island - and the whole of Greece - has to offer. The cosmopolitan village of Fiscardo is only 20 minutes by car. This villa is not all about the views, however. It is about fine living. After all, to enjoy these views, great food, good wine and beauty all over must be there! The villa has been refurbished by its new owners to a marvelous elegant/cosy style. Not suitable for kids under 12 years old, but simply one of the best choices for one, two or three couples!

The villa is located on the coastal road between Agia Efimia and Fiskardo, at the North part of Kefalonia Island.

The road winds its way along the cliff tops passing Myrtos beach and the village of Assos, two of the highlights of this beautiful island. Between these two famous landmarks the road bends, and perched on a ridge jutting out to sea ‘Villa Nel Cielo' is poised magnificently within this stunning landscape.

5 minutes drive and you will dive and immerse your self in the incredibly blu waters of Myrtos Beach, who will be your daily postal card from your bedroom and the villa's terraces.

Assos, at 10 minutes drive, is an old traditional tiny village settled in an amazing bay. The castle, from the time of the prestigious Venetian occupation, bring the necessary cultural and historic touch. Assos is the place to go for those who want spend a lazy and quite time drinking an ouzo or eating at the few tavernas, watching the calm waters of the bay, and the sun slowly disappear behind the castle at the magic sunset time.

Fiscardo is just 20 minutes drive: a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village, cosmopolite and glamour.

A taste of Saint Tropez, at the old time of Vadim and Bardot .Fiscardo, with its waterfront tavernas and bars, is simply a delight. Strict building regulations, to maintain the elegance of the Venetian architecture which lines Fiscardo's horseshoe harbour, have created a magical setting that is one of Kefalonias highlights.

Traditionnal 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 take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts. Many of them are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo. At night the village 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 Ionian Island, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening. The place to be, to see and be seen.

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

As an attorney, I am not usually at a loss for words but was left speechless every time I stepped out on our bedroom balcony or the back deck to the majestic views before me. The sweeping views over the Mediterranean in front, Myrtos Beach to the left and Assos Bay to the right initially attracted me to this stunning Villa but once we got there, discovered that there were so many other priceless and endearing features to the Villa. The Villa enjoys a fair amount of privacy, which we highly value, as well as elegant design, coupled with warm and delightful décor. The owners, Marina Anouilh and her husband, clearly love this Villa and have shared wonderful times there. The Villa reflects their passion to this home and the beauty of the island in its design and its personal touches. We loved the art and unique collections featured throughout the house while benefitting from the access to every convenience and accommodation desired. The kitchen was fully stocked with every desirable amenity, from a cappuccino maker to lovely table ware, silver ware and cooking appliances, pots and pans. The bedrooms are all incredibly spacious, each with a stunning view and each with elegant and fully equipped bathroom. We never wanted for soft and clean towels or bedding sheets/pillows. And, the back deck - how spectacular. The infinity pool is stunning and fun. The back deck features a fire pit and no shortage of seating areas and towels/cushions. We spend much of our time relaxing and loving our vacation from the cushioned chairs in the back - truly a happy place.

The other and equally winning feature of this Villa is the property manager, Catherine Marmet. We travel often and often lease Villas or vacation homes. Catherine is by far the most helpful property manager with whom we have worked. Her knowledge of everything related to the island, from the ferry schedules to the best boat rental companies, restaurants, shops, and destinations to visit, is truly remarkable and she shares it with those fortunate to experience this magic place readily and in an easily usable format.

I hesitated to share this review since I fear that we may find that reserving a future stay there may become more difficult once others discover the Villa but in the end felt that the Villa Nel Cielo, its owners and property manager deserve this reviewer's love and accolades.

Truly one of the most spectacular places on earth.

But your review has something so special that the owner has accepted with heart its publication Looking forward to see you again in a couple of years Kind regards Catherine Marmet your Villa Agent.
