Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Korianna House is the dream property of a well-travelled company director who fell in love with Kefalonia many years ago and spent 10 years seeking the perfect location to build. After staying in some of the world's finest hotels she was able to translate her vision of a modern, stylish escape into one of Kefalonia's most beautiful villas.
The property enjoys the benefits of both a tranquil, rural location with spectacular unspoiled views with local amenities within walking distance. The sunsets it enjoys are simply amazing.
The property has been furnished with no expense spared, with furnishings from Feather & Black, Indian Ocean, The White Company and John Lewis among others. A unique feature wall with spotlights adds a special romantic touch, as do the many candles at the villa. The kitchen is well-equipped with incredible attention to details, including a black granite worktop and top-of-the-range Neff appliances.
For those who do not wish to cook however a personal chef can be arranged and there are also several charming local tavernas within walking distance, as well as a pool bar less than a one minute walk away.
There is an extremely private pool, plenty of outdoor relaxation areas including a hammock and a private lower garden featuring lemon trees which guests are welcome to help themselves to.
There are several beaches within a 10 minute drive or a 20-minute walk (down a very steep hill!).
The villa would be a perfect romantic retreat for a honeymoon but also is well suited to families and friends.

|Further details indoors||
The large open-plan living area downstairs has been built to maximise privacy and the incredible views. Colours are natural stones, wood and creams and the cool tiles and natural breezes help to keep the interior cool without the need of air-conditioning (although this is of course supplied).
Upstairs the master bedroom has a top-of-the-range ensuite and is laid out to ensure views from the bed to die for! There is a balcony which is shared with a further double room and then a twin room, which has a door in the corridor which can be closed to form another further 'suite'.
The Ionian Islands region
Famous as the location of Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Kefalonia is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled of all of the Greek islands. It is the largest of the Ionian islands and therefore offers plenty of things to do and see while still offering quiet, unspoiled locations for those who want to get away from it all.
Korianna is a tiny unspoiled hamlet close to the popular village of Spartia. There are several tavernas and mini markets within walking distance as well as a pool bar in the village of Korianna itself. There are various Greek dancing festivals throughout the summer in local villages that visitors are welcome to visit.
Nearby are the beaches of Spartia and Avithos.
