Approaching the villa for the first time, it seems hidden away above the traditional stone walls that enclose the pretty garden surrounding the villa. A splendid semi circular pool reflects the history of the original site as a thresher’s circle,as does the Greek name) and the wonderful views vie with an intimate traditional interior for a truly lasting first impression. Comfortable outside terrace furniture ensure that many hours are spent admiring the views of Skala, the countryside and the vivid blue of the Ionian Sea. To one side, a shaded terrace houses the barbeque for al fresco meals and evenings spent listening to the cicadas and goat's bells in the distance.
The snug relaxing atmosphere of the open plan living, dining and kitchen is established with the sturdy wooden girders of the ceiling towering over the warm tones of the exposed stone.
The clever mix of contemporary décor and traditional setting give a welcoming airy finish and the windows frame the superb panoramas that elevate the infinity pool to the horizon.
Built on two levels, the bedrooms are on the upper floor, a pretty double bedroom with a fabulous patio covered with vines and a twin bedroom enjoying equally stunning views. The open plan living, dining, and kitchen are on the ground floor, delightfully decorated with glass table and chairs and comfy sofas. All open out onto the terrace, sunloungers inviting in the sunshine, and umbrellas provide shade in the heat of the day.
Ideally located with a choice of beaches at the bottom of the hillside, this quiet, rural spot is just 2km from Skala beach and the village with a good choice of tavernas and shops, slightly further on; the unspoilt beach of Mounda and the smaller village of Katelios (7km) with tiny beachside fish tavernas.
Kefalonia is an oenologists' delight, and Metaxas winery is 12 km from the villa in Mavrata and Gentilini and Robola Co-operative are also not to be missed, for the quality ( and attractive prices) of their local wines.
