Situated above Argostoli, the advantages of Koutavos being so close to the cosmopolitan capital and wonderful sandy beaches in nearby Lassi are immediately evident. This smart and comfortable villa has a quiet, refined atmosphere and quite magnificent views, incorporating both Argostoli Bay and the Lixouri peninsula, that stretch as far as the eye can see. Blending seamlessly into the blue Aegean, the splendid infinity swimming pool is surrounded by green lawns and a colourful palette of plants and shrubs.
The interior is cool and spacious. Elegant, contemporary decor gives a rich and pampered feel to the house with stylish touches such as plush brocades and satin comforters throughout. On the ground floor, the kitchen and dining area occupy a separate domain from the living space, which, in turn opens onto the pool terrace and is furnished with comfortable sofas, ornate curtains and mirrors. The twin bedroom, smartly furnished with monochrome bedcovers and splendid polished wood, has an adjacent shower room and a private terrace that also enjoys the great views.
On the first floor, the principal double bedroom and twin bedroom replicate that same attractive design. Each benefits from an en suite bathroom and a private balcony (the twin bedroom actually has two) looking out over the pool or towards the impressive mountains and seascape. Next to the pool terrace the shaded dining area is ideally positioned for a lazy lunch, an evening aperitif or an al fresco dinner under the stars.
Makris Yialos, one of the best sandy beaches on the island is 1.7km (a seven minute drive) downhill while the tiny hamlet of Spilia with its handy supermarket is just 1km away. Nearby Gradakia (2.3km) is a small sandy cove just waiting to be discovered.
With its bustling waterfront full of fruit and fish markets and wide promenade bordered by tall palms, Argostoli is a lively town and a great place for a stroll in the cool of the evening.
The pink bell tower of Campana Square towers over the commercial district, at the heart of which is Lithostroto Street; cobbled, conveniently pedestrianised and with plenty of interesting shops to dip into as you walk from one end to the other. Shopping done, head for the central square (Platiea Valianou) where you will find many bars, cafes, and local restaurants in which to relax.
