A small romantic villa for two, this island retreat on Kefalonia is the perfect place for a honeymoon or special holiday. Villa Athena is set on a hillside in a beautiful rural location near the village of Skala and was built 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.
On arrival, the serene atmosphere inside the villa will have you relaxed immediately. 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.
Reached by a marble staircase, the bedroom suite of bathroom, dressing area with full-length mirror and ample wardrobes, and bedroom with queen-size (5 ft.) divan bed of top quality, will impress you. Draw back the curtains in the morning to reveal, through full-length glazed doors, the Ionian Sea and distant shore lines. Step through the doors onto the sunlit balcony with table and chairs and you will have found just the right place to sit for your morning refreshments.
The villa has its own private infinity swimming pool equipped with a jacuzzi. There are no close neighbours and the extensive patio adjoining the pool has additional privacy screening. There are comfortable sunbeds and a pergola for some shade. The outdoor dining space and charcoal-fired barbecue are the ingredients needed for alfresco dining under the stars. The villa is surrounded by a private garden which includes ample space for off-road car parking.
