Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Come and experience the Greek island dream in Kefalonia.
The villa is a very short walk to two delightful tavernas one with a small shop. The nearest beach is Dafnoudi beach which is about a twenty minute walk part of which is along a rough track from the main Antipata road, well worth the walk as you emerge onto the most stunning beach. Embilssi beach is a short drive away. The beautiful town of Fiscardo is a four minute drive away where you will find many shops, a bakery, cashpoints and a good choice of restaurants and bars. There are many wonderful walks around the area of Fiscardo.
The house is set on the edge of a forest offering a tranquil setting for a relaxing holiday. The garden is walled so giving privacy and security for children and the pool has Roman steps for safe access. The house has a covered loggia for relaxing or dining and the upstairs balcony has stunning views out to sea.
There is a barbecue with dining area by the pool.
There is an interesting article in the Daily Mail on the 18/01/2010 by the actress Jane Horrocks who recently visited the island and stayed not far from our house, it is well worth a read.
Just visit the Daily Mail website, click on the travel section and type in Jane Horrocks. It was interesting to see that her favourite restaurant is the one just by our house To Pefko, one of the small restaurants by the roadside in the village of Antipata. Hope you find it worth a read, we did.

The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia lies to the west of mainland Greece and is about a three and half hour journey by plane.It is a very green island,mountainous with spectacular scenery.The summers are long and very hot. The Ionian Islands are a small group of islands just off the western Greek seaboard. For centuries they have maintained their own identity and culture, each is unique, set into captivating landscapes of rugged mountains, green hills and the ever-present turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea.
The village of Antipata where Dafnoudi House is situated is a mixture of the old and new. The local church of the Virgin Mary is built in the Russian Orthodox style in the shape of a cross with a distinctive Russian dome.
There are three local tavernas one with a small shop within a very short walk of the house two serving traditional Kefalonian food and one Italian pizzeria. These tavernas are very popular as it is such a short walk home after an enjoyable meal with a bottle or two of Robolla wine.
The village of Maganos which is a short drive away has more shops and tavernas. The picturesque fishing village of Fiscardo is a beautiful spot for dining of an evening. The small working harbour lined with restaurants, cafes and bars is overlooked by colourful traditional houses with fantastic views across the water to Ithaka and Lefkas. There is a bakery, bank and mini-markets.
There are many interesting places to visit around Fiscardo, including the many wineries,monastries and the beautiful Myrtos beach,the Drogarati caves and the mesmerising Lake Melissani.
Hire a boat for the day in Fiscardo and visit the many secluded beaches,or visit the nearby island of Ithaca.
