Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa Anelina is a traditional stone-built house, located in 'Chavdata', a quiet, hospitable village in Kefalonia Island. The villa was built according to the original Kefalonian architecture that prevailed in the 19th century and characterized all the living mansions of the era. It is fully equipped for a top-quality self-catering staying and is surrounded by spacious verandas and a well kept garden.
The villa was built in 2003 and mostly decorated with an authentic, antique-style furniture. It was first used as a holiday house from the owners (Rigas family), who gave all their heart into styling and looking after the villa. Later, it was qualified and licensed by the 'HTO', i.e the Hellenic Tourism Organization, complying with all standards, rules and comforts for a Holiday Rental. Live like a noble from another era, combining all comforts with a traditional, hospitable location. Enjoy your privacy, away from the fuss of the over-crowded touristic areas.

The Ionian Islands region
How does one do justice to this island in just a few lines? Majestic, green, clean, fascinating and idyllic are only a few words that some to mind. This is an island you can return to again and again, and still discover something new.
It is an island of many miracles: on the day of the Virgin Mary, the 15th of August snakes come into the village Markopoulo, blessing the Church of Our Lady with their presence.There is a flower on the island that only blossoms on this day. The patron saint Gerasimos' well preserved body is sometimes said to have seaweed on his feet - local folklore has it that he visits his friends St. Spyridon and Nectarios on the neighbouring island Zakynthos (Zante) and Corfu. The sea water that disappears under the ground at Katavothres and pours out on the other side of the island.
A paradise for nature lovers, this lush island has a special kind of fir which grows only here and nowhere else in the world. There are wild horses on the mountainside, and goats and rabbits with golden teeth because of the minerals in the ground. In the sea swims the turtle Caretta Caretta, dolphins and the monk seal Monachus Monachus, and the waters of the island are considered amongst the cleanest in the world.
Marvelous beaches, an underground cave and lake, the tomb of Odysseus, the fishing village Fiscardo, the Robola and Calliga wine, Lord Byron's view...Cephalonia is truly an island of much variety, and anyone who enjoyed Louis de Bernier's "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" and wants to see what the island is really like will not be disappointed.
Villa Anelina is located in the village of 'Chavdata', 5 Km west of 'Lixouri' town, the second largest community in Kefalonia. The area where the villa is placed is ideal for a calm and serene vacation.
Chavdata is a lovely rural village with a variety of flora growing wild, as well as adorning the gardens of the local village houses.
