An outstanding luxury Villa in a stunning tranquil setting.

Located just outside the rural village of Kleismata in just over an acre of landscaped garden this quietly elegant, spacious and luxurious Villa comprises of two floors. Both have open plan living/kitchen/dining areas. The ground floor consists of two well appointed and comfortable double bedrooms with en suite. The upper floor has a superior double bedroom, dressing area and en suite. A spiral staircase links to a utility area and out to the BBQ patio with a 10 seater table/chairs, and a large (15 x 4 metres), private, infinity pool . There is satellite TV, DVD and music facilities with books and games also available.

A pergola at the western limit of the property affords outstanding views of both Mount Aenos and Zakynthos.

Situated on a hillside above an evergreen valley with superb breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea and Zakynthos, the area is surrounded by olive groves and cypress trees. Not only sea views are available but also the magnificent Mount Aenos can be viewed in all its splendour.

There is no passing traffic to spoil the tranquil ambiance of the Villa, being positioned at the end of a single track lane. Wildlife abounds, watch out for Pine Martins and in particular the Bee Eaters and Birds of Prey. Listen to the goat bells.

For you and your family/friends this is the location, the Villa in which to relax and unwind in. Enjoy.

The Ionian Islands region

Situated on the western side of mainland Greece the Island of Kefalonia is the largest Island in the Ionian Sea. It is about 350 square miles in area and has a population of roughly 45,000.

While Corfu to the north, and Zakynthos to the south, have a reputation as popular 'party' islands, Kefalonia retains an aura of authenticity and is most suited to visitors able to appreciate the difference. You might find a café serving English food but Kefalonia remains a McDonalds-free zone. Greek food has a high reputation and Kefalonia, being very popular with Greek visitors, offers the traditional favourites as well as tasty local specialties such as kreatopita (Kefalonia Meat Pie). Greek wine complements Greek cuisine perfectly and Robola, a dry white wine unique to Kefalonia, has such a good reputation among wine connoisseurs that it's exported around the world. Much less known is the rather good red wine produced on the Palliki peninsular. Both available very inexpensively 'from the barrel' with your meal. Enjoy!

Kefalonia

Argostoli, the capital of the island, takes about 20 minutes by car from Villa Karala and offers a cosmopolitan atmosphere with many good restaurants and bars.

A predominantly green island the main natural tourist attractions on Kefalonia are Drongarati Caves and Mellisani Lake. The lake needs to be seen at midday to appreciate the natural sun light whilst you are being rowed along. We seriously suggest you explore the island. Definitely places to see are Assos and on the way take a look at Myrtos Beach, apparently the seventh most photographed beach in the world. Another beach worth seeing from afar is Anti Samos, near Sami. It's one of the beaches featured in the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Fiskardo, is the main yacht haven at the northern end of the island. Its the only place that has many pre 1953 earthquake buildings remaining and well worth a trip. Another location worth a visit and nearer home - St Georges castle is clearly visible during the day and lit up at night.

There is only a small mini market in Kleismata. The main supermarkets are an easy 15 minute drive from the Villa. There is a taverna in Kleismata however within a 10 minute drive there is a choice of four other tavernas.

"Highly recommended for a luxury hassle free stay"

If you're looking for a private spacious and luxury stay, look no further! The property is in a secluded one acre location overlooking nothing but countryside, the sea and an neighboring island. The property is finished to an exceptionally high standard making you feel like a millionaire for the duration of your holiday! 15 minutes drive from the airport, you are greeted when you land by the owner, Alan who guides you back to the villa. Towels are provided and the villa has all of the usual home comforts including a washing machine and dishwasher. This is by far the most enjoyable holiday we have ever had. When the kids are tired of day trips and late nights out, a day relaxing by the infinity pool is just what you need to recharge, ready for your next trip out. Supermarket shopping is only about 10 minutes driving away and if you intend getting the most out of your visit to this beautiful and unspoiled island, a hire car is essential. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
