Villa Anna Rebecca
Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 11
Only a 500m walk to the secluded, sandy beaches in Pessada, this large, magnificently appointed and luxurious villa is one of the newest on the island of Kefalonia. With an open floor plan, this 320 m² villa offers many places to gather or retreat. With 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 separate living rooms, it is large enough to accommodate two families very comfortably. There is air conditioning in every room of the villa. There are two large screen TVs with a library of over 100 movies, satellite programming and Free WiFi throughout.
On the outside, the covered veranda offers a dining area for 10 and a comfortable seating set for relaxing with a drink or playing cards. Just a few steps away is a 50m² pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas. All this with incredible views of the sea and the occasionally anchored yacht enjoying the same peace and tranquility as you are. Views to the South include Spartia beach and the island of Zakynthos across the Ionian Sea. Looking to the north provides a full view of Mount Ainos, the tallest mountain on Kefalonia.
Throughout the property are gardens of Lavender, Jasmine, Bougainvillaeas, Oleander and Rosemary. Additionally, there are groves of olive trees and citrus trees. Depending on the season, you are welcome to enjoy lemons, oranges or grapefruits right from the trees. They are still small trees but they are growing fast.
The villa is conveniently located to many island activities. You can take a peaceful walk along the rural roads and paths of this cliffside village. Within 10 minutes, you can walk to the secluded coves that make up the small beaches in Pessada. Nearby, you can walk to the port in Pessada where you can have a souvlaki and beer at the outdoor cantina.
Within a 10-minute drive, you can visit St. George's castle, built in the early 16th century. Within a 15-minute drive, you can visit the monastery of Saint Gerasimos for a glimpse of its ornate interior and the mummified body of the saint himself. Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia, can also be reached with a 15-minute drive. You can visit Argostoli for the fruit markets, souvenirs, bakeries, cafes or many wonderful restaurants. Be sure to spend an evening in the square where you can have an ice cream, frappe, crepe or mixed drink while watching the town come alive and gather. Other notable drives include a visit to the underground Lake Mellisani and Dragorati Cave. It is a beautifully scenic drive to Myrtos Beach and the picturesque towns of Assos, Fiskardo and Sami.
We welcome you to enjoy our home as much as we do on the idyllic Greek island of Kefalonia.

Pessada is a small traditional Greek village, situated on the south coast of Kefalonia with a small ferry port and a fishing harbour. It is a lovely rural village with a variety of flora growing wild as well as adorning the gardens of the local village houses. Breathe in the heady herbal scents and listen out for the tinkling of goat bells. Pessada is also famous on the island for its seafaring traditions which brought its prosperity and small secluded coves can be found nearby for a spot of fishing.
The Divino winery in Pessada is open to the public for viewing with guided tours and wine-tasting on offer. Over a dozen different wines are available to buy direct from the winery. Divino was established in 1986 in the village of Pessada when a 17th century family winery was restored. The winemaker is particularly interested in producing sweet, semi-sweet and semi-dry wines. This was the first winery to produce sweet White Muscat of Kefalonia. The grapes are sun-dried in the restored stone linos where traditionally grapes were trodden.
Pessada is also the home of the Kefalonia Game Farm where a variety of birds such as pheasant and quail are raised for hunters from all over Europe.
This beautiful villa is situated right on the edge of the village of Pessada. It has panoramic view of the Ionian Sea and Mount Ainos. While a car is recommended to fully enjoy the island, you will be happy to find that a few small, sandy beaches are only a 500m walk from the property.
On the southern coast, Pessada has a ferry port that provides the only only connection to the island of Zakynthos, also known as Zante, for additional sight-seeing. It is just a 15 minute drive to to the airport and Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. You can visit Argostoli for the fruit markets, souvenirs, bakeries, cafes or many wonderful restaurants.

"Excellent exceeded expectrations"
From the moment we arrived at this beautiful villa , I could not fail to be impressed by everything... The view was amazing, the pool was awesome, the pictures and description on the internet do not do the villa justice, from the impressively well equipped kitchen to the furniture to the 100 odd films on the dvd library , everything was of the highest quality. We travelled as a large party with our children 19-27 ( I know hardly children) but everybody said wow!!! Great bedrooms, excellent seating areas, in both parts of the villa and also inside and out, there was always enough room to have your own space if you wanted it or just relax all together. I can not recommend this villa high enough, if you travel to Kefalonia and stay somewhere else, you are making a big mistake. A very special mention to George senior... a wonderful man and a great character, nothing was too much trouble for him, and he was always available for anything we needed. All in all if I could design and build a dream home with a sea view on an idyllic greek island, this is it.......
