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.
