Villa Avali Family
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Nestled in a small cove, just 30 meters from the sea, overlooking crystal-clear water and
sandy shores, this new cozy villa offers 120 sq.m. of living space, with three bedrooms, two
bathrooms, a living room, a roofed veranda and elegantly landscaped lawn garden. The
scenic terraced gardens, lead straight down to the water's edge, where a gate divides the
property from the sea and the flat rocks below, suitable for sunbathing and swimming.One
can also continue on to the beautiful sandy St Thomas' Beach, which is a mere 3 minutes'
walk from the property.
To ensure a tranquil and singular/exclusive holiday experience, only two villas adorn our 8000
sq.m. property, and each is built on a different ground level and on a safe gated private
community in an exclusive area. From here one can easily avoid the crowded beaches and the
stressful commute, since a semi-private coast is located only a few meters away, a
particularly privileged location as it provides shelter from the wind and practically guarantees
calm seas during the Summer. Enjoy swimming and snorkeling in Avali Cove, a "natural
swimming pool" !
The Villa's ground level consists of a spacious living room which combines a sitting area, a dining area and a fully
equipped kitchen. The living room opens up to a front lawn and breathtaking, panoramic sea views. A small bathroom
serves this floor. Floor-to-ceiling doors lead out to a large roofed outdoor area that offers shade from the strong Greek
sun with a built-in BBQ and outdoor dining area .
A flight of steps leads to the upper level which includes the master double bedroom, two twin bedrooms and a
The unique master bedroom covers an area of 40 sq. m. This extravagant bedroom, commands breathtaking,
panoramic sea views: visitors can lie in the king sized bed and gaze out across the Ionian Sea and the slopes of
mount Ainos. Large glass doors open onto a huge balcony overlooking the scenic coastline of southern Cephalonia.
Bedroom Two, with twin beds, has a large window from which to admire the view. Bedroom three has no view and so
would be more suitable for children or teenagers
We want our guests to enjoy our villa as their home away from home. So, apart from very
personal items, we've furnished it to the same standard as our own home. All bedrooms are
air-conditioned and have ample storage for clothes and personal belongings.
The area offers the perfect balance between relaxing isolation and easy access to the more
cosmopolitan part of the island. There are no hotels in the surrounding area, and the few
private villas are situated far enough to maintain an intimate atmosphere. Within walking
distance there is a tavern and a beach canteen, while a short drive will bring you to several
restaurants and mini markets.
Ideal and cost-effective holiday option for families with children, friends and small groups, or a romantic getaway for
couples and honeymooners, looking to enjoy the sun and the sea secluded from the crowded
touristic areas of the island. The grounds surrounding the villa can provide an elegant
backdrop for a wedding party or special event of up to 100 guests. For large parties or
events, advance arrangements are required.

The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia, the largest island of the Ionian Sea, is considered one of the most beautiful Greek
islands for the richness, variety and harmony of its natural beauties. A perfect mix of sea,
beaches, mountains, verdant plains, flora and fauna. The island is ideal for a direct contact
with nature, in the sense of both naturism and nudism! Its long coastline extends for 237 km
offering 39 beautiful pebbly and sandy beaches.
Keep in mind that distances in Kefalonia are very long: between Poros, in the south, and
Fiskardo, in the north, there are over 96km of bends, while Sami in the east is 44km far from
Luxouri, in the west.
However, there are bus connections between these places, but they are mostly fixed for the
needs of locals rather than tourists, so it is perhaps preferable to travel by car, motorbike or, if
you prefer, by kayak or sailing boat.
The coast of Kefalonia is quite varied, offering powerful contrasting landscapes. Stretches of
sandy beaches on shallow crystal waters, white pebbles, large and small creeks (many still
unexplored) offering the best Greek beaches, among the best in the world. Along the coasts of
Kefalonia live rare sea animals, in danger of extinction, like the “Monk seal” and the
“Careta-Careta” sea turtle.
The mountainous highlands dominate all the other Ionian islands extending from Cape
Dafnoudi to the extreme south of Cape Mounda, where we find the most important mountain
called Enos. The few and small plains of the island are in the area of Krania, Omalon, Sami,
Pilarou, Livathou and Palikis. Mount Enos reaches, to the highest peak (Soros), the altitude of
1628 meters thus being the second heighest mountain on Greek islands. It is also one of the
ten National Greek Parks, a refuge for migratory birds and mammals, the ideal habitat for rare
species of flowers, shrubs and herbs. Its slopes are covered with trees of a dark green species
that grows only here (abies cephalonica).
The shape and the limestone stratification of Kefalonia determines the presence of important
geological phenomena all over the island (such as the corrosion of the limestone that gives
life to caves, abysses, etc.). Particularly interesting are the caves of Melissani Agalaki, Saint
Theodoron, Zervati, Drogarati, Sakou. These geological phenomena are are very interesting
especially with regard to the behavior of waters. Not by chance that Kefalonia has been called
the island of the "bizarre", because of its numerous and unusual natural phenomena, such as
moving rocks, waters that disappear, strange flowers and more.
The villa is nestled in a small, exclusive cove, steps from St Thomas Beach, which is located
on the Southwestern coast of Cephalonia, only 12 km from the island's capital, Argostoli, and
10 km from the island's airport.
Within walking distance from the villa there is a tavern and a beach canteen, while a short
drive will bring you to several restaurants and mini markets. The area offers the perfect
balance between relaxing isolation and easy access to the more cosmopolitan part of the
There are some great walks around the villa, with the most unusual rock formations.
Since the location provides shelter from the wind and practically guarantees calm seas during
the summer, it is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, sea-kayaking, fishing, small boat sailling,
stand up surf etc [Canoes/kayaks/ surfboards/flotation devices are provided free of charge (at
your responsibility – some experience required)]
