Set on a mountainside of verdant greenery is the small village of Perahori. This charming rural hamlet is one of only a small number of working agricultural villages on the island, producing some of the finest olive oil, feta cheese and wines, which you are able to buy in the local shop. It is at the edge of this village where Villa Kounouvato has been built in a supreme location on the side of Mount Nerovoulo, taking full advantage of the breathtaking scenery.
High on a hillside with an absolutely fantastic vantage point, these have to be some of the most stunning views over southern Ithaka and across the Ionian to Lefkada. The views cover the complete peninsula from Vathy, the capital, towards the north part of the island and Mount Neritos and out towards the beautiful bays of Sarakinikos and Filiatro.
Villa Kounouvato is a beautiful villa in complete seclusion, yet close enough to essential amenities and beaches to be practical. Within easy reach of the village and the rotunda church of St. Raphael (Ithakas patron saint), it is a relaxed and romantic haven. The closest mini market and taverna is only fifteen minutes walk away with the bustling harbour of Vathy only a ten minutes drive away. Outdoor living is certainly a priority at Kounouvato, with total relaxation being the key. You enter the beautifully furnished house into the large open plan living/dining area with fully equipped kitchen. Also on this floor are two double bedrooms both with en suite shower rooms.
The third bedroom with twin beds and en suite shower room is upstairs from the living room on a mezzanine floor set amongst the fabulous wooden ceiling beams.
Great care has been taken to finish this villa to an excellent standard. Patio doors from the living room lead out to a large open terrace and the best of the views taking in a true panorama of southern Ithaka. The large swimming pool, terrace and BBQ area were meticulously planned to include the olive trees, the natural rock face and draw you into the natural environment. All outside terraces look out towards the view and fantastic sunrises.
Villa Kounouvato is a beautifully designed villa with views that are second to none on Ithaka.
