Description from owner

Description

Nestled in a small cove, just 30 meters from the sea, overlooking crystal-clear water and sandy shores, this new spacious villa offers 240 sq.m. of living space, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a playroom, a spacious living room, a roofed balcony, a large veranda and scenic terraced gardens, which lead straight down to the water's edge, where a gate divides the property from the sea and the flat rocks below, suitable for sunbathing and swimming. One can also continue on to the beautiful sandy St Thomas' Beach, which is a mere 3 minutes walk from the property.
To ensure a tranquil and exclusive holiday experience, only two villas adorn our 8000 sq.m. property, and each is built on a different ground level and on a safe, gated, private community in an exclusive area. From here, one can easily avoid the crowded beaches and the stressful commute, since a semi-private coast is located only a few meters away, a particularly privileged location as it provides shelter from the wind and practically guarantees calm seas during the summer. Enjoy swimming and snorkeling in Avali Cove, a "natural swimming pool" !
The villa's interior arrangement is 'upside down'! The living room, the kitchen and one of the double bedrooms with separate bathroom are on the upper level, while the rest of the sleeping quarters are on the lower level - a traditional Greek arrangement. There is also a playroom, equipped with a table tennis table, on the lower level.
We want our guests to enjoy our villa as their 'home away from home'. So, apart from very personal items, we've furnished it to the same standard as our own home. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have ample storage for clothes and personal belongings.
No expense was spared in the construction and furnishing of this lavish house. Predominately modern in style, it boasts large glass doors to take full advantage of the stunning views, which can be enjoyed from all rooms. Enjoy the semi-private coast located just a few meters away.
The area offers the perfect balance between relaxing isolation and easy access to the more cosmopolitan part of the island. There are no hotels in the surrounding area, and the few private villas are situated far enough to maintain an intimate atmosphere. There is a tavern and a beach canteen within walking distance , while a short drive will bring you to several restaurants and mini markets.
Check out our exact location !!! Type our coordinates on G-earth: 38° 6'54.08"N, 20°35'54.93"E
Ideal choice for a group of friends, a large family or two sharing, looking to enjoy the sun and the sea secluded from the crowded touristic areas of the island. The grounds surrounding the villa can provide an elegant backdrop for a wedding party or special event of up to 100 guests. For large parties or events, advance arrangements are required.

“Wonderful holiday”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2017

I would definitely recommend this villa. It was really clean and well equipped with gorgeous views over the bay. There is a bar and a taverna within walking distance and other resorts within a few minutes drive away. The owner was extremely helpful and answered all our queries quickly before and during our stay. We were all very sad to leave. A great holiday - thank you.

“A Lovely Villa on Its Own Slice of Kefalonian Coastline”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2013

We stayed at Villa Grand Avali with a group of seven friends and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The villa offers stunning views of the coastline that few see. But best of all is the small cove just in front of the villa with some of the best waters on the island and only a few people there. The house itself was very clean and new. As we were told, we were among the first tourists to stay there, since it was first rented in August 2013 ! Before that, it served as a private holiday home. This villa was obviously someone’s home since it is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The only downfall was that there was no swimming pool provided but on the other hand St Thomas’ beach is only a few meters away and we enjoyed all day swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters and calm seas. I'd recommend this place to anyone going to Kefalonia. It's suited for a relaxing, leisurely stay because of its location. There is also the option for more active holidays since there are a couple of sea kayaks available by the owner and the coastline in the area is just spectacular for exploration. If you are looking for a great place to stay, you just found one!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your feedback! We are so glad that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us. As far as the lack of a swimming pool is concerned, please consider that, although tourist operators have imposed the need for a pool on villas in our area, we are concerned about potential environmental impact from chemical use and pool construction, since our villa is located on a coastline which is designated as a EU "Natura 2000" special area of conservation (code: GR2220004). Furthermore, keep in mind that a 10x5 m. pool, with chlorinated water, would boost the weekly rental cost, for the same villa, up to 5.000 €. Is it worth it for a villa just 30 meters from the sea?

“Just heavenly”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2013

We stayed at Villa Grand Avali in September 2013 and it was honestly amazing ! Having travelled a great deal, and being rather fussy about the properties I stay at, I have to say that this is one of "THOSE" unforgettable places. Perched on the rocks, literally next to the ocean, the Villa is immaculate, comfortable, has views to behold, and truly felt like "home away from home" (but a lot more luxurious). Our party all felt the same way - just so beautiful that we didn't want to go anywhere but stay at the villa. The 4 bedrooms are all very spacious, extremely comfortable and the views are spectacular. I would highly recommend this property to all who want to relax and enjoy the sea and the privacy that this villa offers!! We cannot wait to go there again! It felt like heaven on earth!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review. It’s truly important for us since you were one of our first quests. We look forward to see you and your family again. Best wishes from Kefalonia.
