A large and wonderful property west side, at 500m from the sea (as the crow flies), built in a totally respect of the old island farm traditional construction, overlooking a dramatic scenery of blue sea and green unspoiled nature.Quiet, getaway from it all, extremely private location with amazing sunsets. Villa is a great eclectic boho combo, extremely homely and well loved – this is not the normal soulless holiday rental.Mira's House: 260 m² - 2800 ft² (main villa and separate guest house), on one unique floor except the large kids attic bedrooms) a large garden pool 12mX5m at few steps below the main villa, a refreshing tiny pool terrace 3mX2m, 7000 m² - 1,7 acre of garden and natural landscape, embedded in an unspoiled nature.The keywords of this place are nature, serenity and privacy.To reach Miras' House, you will follow a narrow road to a remote and authentic Greek hamlet. An old tiny church. The road stops there. Dead end. Behind the large property gate, Mira and her husband Dror have built their dream: a large farm house style villa to fit their family holidays requirement. Nature is powerful and perfectly unspoiled, the land is overlooking an amazing wild bay of the mythic Ionian Sea. Ancient dry stone wall protecting old cultivation terrace, hundreds years old olive trees, dark green cyprus, all this unspoiled environment makes the project of construction a true challenge: how build a new house with the vision of nature conservation, in a totally respect of the environment.The house will be built respecting the tradition and the style of the old local farm houses, using ancient and traditional construction methods, using stone and wooden beams, thick walls, high celling, antiques tiles on the roof, old floor ceramic or stone, antique sink.Mira and Dror have won the challenge.The house is embedded in nature, in 7000 square meters of garden and private land, enjoying a very unique privacy.Interior is warm and spacious. Every room, every corner of the house is opened to the breathtaking blue and green scenery.Interior is so refreshing when the strong Greek mid day sun invites you to take a break for a welcome siesta.The main house: 230 m2.Kitchen, dining room and living room in a one only very large space: large french window opening to the terrace, facing the bright sea and the refreshing and powerful natureMaster bedroom is oversized, bed is oversized, facing the sea.

The Ionian Islands region

Fiscardo

At 8 km from the villa, Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian Islands. Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953, that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia. 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.Traditional 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.Fiscardo at night 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 Kefalonia, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening.

"Unforgettable house of wonder in divine beauty of Kefalonia...believe me"

If you would dream about the house near the sea – this would be it. The Mira's family made it right to our dream… The remote beautiful location, far from touristic fuss, but close to the sea, sun and sky…Daylights and twilights, nights with flying stars, breathtaking orange sunsets over the sea and peaceful fresh aromatic mornings in the greens, swimming pool splashes and cicadas singing, cozy corners for hideaways and cool communal spaces to celebrate and make parties…The architecture of the house is very tasteful and fits to the landscape of the coast. We were indulging every minute and every special corner of the property. Though the outside was so remarkable with that amazing nature and views, we liked to be inside also. Because in the sleeping bedrooms - it was very cozy, master bedroom – very spacious and with it’s own terrace – lounge - opening, and close to the refreshing small pool(second pool). The upper floor has the perfect for 4-5 kids bedding deck, and guesthouse is, anyway, another little hideaway for romantic days in Greece, with own private territory and own private sea view… The atmosphere was very peaceful and happy. During the whole week we travelled all around the island, that was really fascinating, swimming in all the paradise bays, most wanted and not so easy to get to (we took the boat hire) , but every evening were coming happily “home” and we loved to cook and barbecue, if skipping the local authentic and tasty taverns. And when it was getting too hot, the barbecue master was jumping into the small pool to cool himself, kids – to get more excited in the big pool for more affect, inflated donuts were there... In Mira’s house we were very happy, and we wished on our last day here - to come back. And, very important – we had the best helpers in the house – Mario and the Manager Catherine, making our stay luxurious. We thank the Mira’s family and the team for having a very happy, loving and soulful week in Greece.

"Beautiful house and location"

We had a very relaxing holiday at Mira's house. It was spacious, clean and well maintained. The location, views, interior and exterior all exceeded expectations. The beaches and restaurants in the area were plentiful and very good. It was perfect for 7 of us.

"A little gem of a place"

Beautiful home which accommodated our family of five. The space worked really well as our daughters ( 23 and 25) stayed in the smaller villa, giving them a sense of privacy when needed. My husband and I stayed at the main villa, and our teenage son in the upstairs bedroom. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and airy. The whole place has a magical charm and a warmth that made it easy to sit around and and linger while taking in the stunning sea views. The pool was always well cared for by Mario and taking a swim in the early evening light was memorable. Mira's house is perfect if you are a sunset lover , as we are. After a full day out, it always felt great to get back, to just unwind by the pool and to watch the sun set on the water. It is a great location, as there are lots of little beaches to explore in the area.

"Amazing property"

We visited Kefalonia for the first time, and we were very lucky to have found Mira’s house. mira’s House is the real paradise home on Kefalonia. We have been renting villas every summer but this has definitely been the most unforgetable experience so far. We couldn't have asked for more. The house is so beautiful, full of tasteful little details. The sea view is breathtaking as are the pool and garden. The villa is quiet and secluded yet only about 10 minutes by car to Fiscardo. . We will definitely be returning there!
