This beautiful villa, designed as an elegant Cephalonian style manor house, is situated on a historic estate, owned by the same family since the 17th century, and located on the south-west coast. Trapezaki beach is just 900 metres away, while is Lithero, one of the best and most secluded beaches on the island, is 2.5 kms away, with a small tavern, renowned for its delicious fish.
Also close by is Koroni beach (7 kms) with its crystal clear waters and Robinson Crusoe bar. The island’s capital, Argostoli, is 12 kms away. The villa is completely private from the rest of the estate, its ground bordered by a tree-lined stone wall. The owners have turned this idyllic spot into a refined eco–retreat, for visitors who are seeking peace and seclusion in unspoilt, natural surroundings. The estate is dominated by its impressive 19th century stone olive mill, turned into a private museum, and the extensive grounds have been planted with indigenous trees and traditional Greek flowers and shrubs. These, together with the existing ancient olive trees and Italian cypresses of the estate, form a unique Mediterranean landscape.
The villa sits in a beautiful panoramic position with the backdrop of mountains behind and views from the front over the valley of olive groves to the clear blue Ionian sea. A Tuscan style swimming pool (12 x 5m, 1.20m shallow end, 1.60m deep end), with Roman steps, extends from the front terrace of the villa, surrounded by lush gardens and trees. There is a helicopter landing pad on the estate, and facilities for boat charter nearby.
The elegant interiors can accommodate up to 6 - 8 guests in four bedrooms, with three state–of-the–art bathrooms. The rooms are furnished with custom designed furniture, with top quality fittings and collector’s items. The large (50m2) living room leads to a spacious front terrace with shaded seating and outdoor dining area. The extensive, fully equipped kitchen, opens to the dining area, and one of the bedrooms at this level, also opens to the main terrace. Both first floor bedrooms open to private balconies.
Amenities include air conditioning and hearing throughout, 3 plasma satellite TVs, DVD player, hi-fi with radio, CD player, ADSL internet and I-pod speakers. A 5 seater jeep with A/C and insurance policy is offered at a reduced price of 585 Euros p.w. in July and August. Private yacht chartering can also be arranged. Changeover day here is a Sunday. Children under 8 years are allowed by special prior arrangement. Please note that there is a 10% price reduction in low season (May, June, September, October) for groups of up to 4 people staying at the property. If you scroll down the photos, we have added some beautiful photos of nearby beaches - the secluded Lithero and Kanali beaches (with very few swimmers even in August). A little further away is popular Lourdas beach, which is more crowded in July/August. We have also added a photo of the path leading to the beach, ideal for jogging.
The property and grounds with the old olive mill also make a wonderful venue for a wedding or other special event.
