The first thing you will notice about this elegant five bedroom villa on the island of Kefalonia is the sweeping and magnificent views that lay before you. By day glorious blue vistas, by night stunning sunsets and twinkling lights of neighbouring homes in the distance.
Olia is a home that is as much about lifestyle as it is about aesthetic style.
Composed of a main house with three double bedrooms and one single bedroom plus a separate one bedroom guest house constructed to the highest of standards it is an idyllic summer home for families.
Inside you will find cool neutral interiors with beautiful soft furnishings where the beauty of the outside seems to have worked its way in through the large sliding windows.
Outside, sit under the portico to enjoy dinner or under the shade of the ancient olive tree, where you will enjoy heady scents and fragrances from the perfectly manicured gardens.
A large swimming pool surrounded by sun loungers makes for a cool and lazy way to spend a long summer’s day and you can also enjoy a game of croquet or boules on the lawn, overlooking the vineyards. The custom made entertaining area with lounge/dining area and built in state-of-the art gas BBQ is a beautifully designed space, which includes an outdoor cinema.
Summer evenings are relaxed and easy here with everything you need right at your fingertips.
Located on the largest of all the Ionian islands, Kefalonia has many stories to tell beyond that of the much loved story of Captain Corelli. It will pull you into its deep rooted, seductive beauty of crystal clear waters, vast stretches of golden sandy beaches and richly diverse Greek landscapes.
Kefalonia is an enchanting island to explore. With a wealth of natural beauty combined with a genteel style, it is an island paradise and Olia the perfect base from which to discover its charms.
Shooting to fame as the location of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Kefalonia is an island of contrasts: its dramatic mountain scenery and rugged cliff-faces highlighting the purity of its white sandy beaches and sparkling, sapphire waters.The capital of the island is Argostoli, a neat and pleasant town filled with cafes, restaurants and bars. Take a seat at Ampelaki Restaurant, a little gem that combines the best quality ingredients with a passion for Kefalonian and Greek cuisine, or take your pick from the bustling cafes crowding the main square, Platia Valiianou.Kefalonia’s coastline is dotted with secret beaches, ranging from soft and sandy to wild and rocky. Most of the beaches are quiet, even in the peak summer months, with plenty of natural shade provided by the forests of pine trees that stretch down to the shoreline. A morning at the picture-perfect Myrtos Beach, with its unbelievably soft sand and turquoise waters, is a sublime experience never to be forgotten. Nature lovers can look out for the protected loggerhead turtles that creep ashore each night to lay their precious eggs, as well as the highly endangered monk seal, which plays in the warm waters around the coastline.Perhaps the most iconic settlement on the island is Fiscardo, the ‘St Tropez of Kefalonia’. This small fishing village was the only settlement not destroyed by the 1953 earthquake, and retains its picturesque charm and examples of the island’s original Venetian architecture. Transforming into a yachters’ paradise come summer, the numerous tavernas lining its small harbour make the perfect setting for a long, leisurely lunch with a side of people-watching.
