Description of the Kefalonia vacation villa rental
A romantic one-bedroom villa just for two, this island retreat near the village of Skala on Kefalonia is the perfect place for a honeymoon or special holiday. Villa Athena is set on a hillside in a beautiful rural location and was built and furnished with luxury and comfort in mind. The site was chosen for its superb sea views across to the Greek mainland and to the neighbouring island of Zante and also for its proximity to some of Kefalonia's best sandy beaches. The villa is not remote, but there are no close neighbours.

On the ground floor, you will find a light and airy open plan living/dining area with carefully chosen furnishings in muted colours. Leading off is a well equipped kitchen and also a downstairs shower room. Patio doors lead you outside to a covered dining area overlooking your own private swimming pool.

The bedroom suite on the first floor comprises an en-suite bathroom, dressing area with full-length mirror and ample wardrobes, and bedroom with queen-size (5 ft.) divan bed of top quality. Glazed doors lead from the bedroom onto a spacious balcony with table and chairs where you can relax, have morning refreshments and enjoy the amazing views of the surrounding countryside and the Ionian Sea

Outside, your swimming pool is equipped with a jacuzzi and the pool is surrounded by a large, well screened, patio for sunbathing plus a pergola for some shade. Here you will also find a purpose built charcoal barbeque with the necessary equipment. The villa is set in its own private garden with a driveway leading to ample off-street parking.
Area Information
The nearby adjoining beaches of Mounda and Kaminia, together known as Turtle Beach, with their scenic backdrop, soft sand and clear water, are just a few minutes drive away. There are good restaurants and shopping facilities in Skala, which is 3 km. by road. Water sports are available on Skala's Blue Flag beach. The fishing village of Katelios is also nearby, with its seafront tavernas and boats for hire. For those wanting to explore the island by car, there are many places of real interest and some magnificent mountain scenery within easy reach.
