About the property

High End Design and Furnishings, Ideal for Large Groups. Free Wifi.

Only a 500m walk to the secluded, sandy beaches in Pessada, this large, magnificently appointed and luxurious villa is one of the newest on the island of Kefalonia. With an open floor plan, this 320 m² villa offers many places to gather or retreat. With 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 separate living rooms, it is large enough to accommodate two families very comfortably. There is air conditioning in every room of the villa. There are two large screen TVs with a library of over 100 movies, satellite programming and Free WiFi throughout.

On the outside, the covered veranda offers a dining area for 10 and a comfortable seating set for relaxing with a drink or playing cards. Just a few steps away is a 50m² pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas. All this with incredible views of the sea and the occasionally anchored yacht enjoying the same peace and tranquility as you are. Views to the South include Spartia beach and the island of Zakynthos across the Ionian Sea. Looking to the north provides a full view of Mount Ainos, the tallest mountain on Kefalonia.

Throughout the property are gardens of Lavender, Jasmine, Bougainvillaeas, Oleander and Rosemary. Additionally, there are groves of olive trees and citrus trees. Depending on the season, you are welcome to enjoy lemons, oranges or grapefruits right from the trees. They are still small trees but they are growing fast.

The villa is conveniently located to many island activities. You can take a peaceful walk along the rural roads and paths of this cliffside village. Within 10 minutes, you can walk to the secluded coves that make up the small beaches in Pessada. Nearby, you can walk to the port in Pessada where you can have a souvlaki and beer at the outdoor cantina.

Within a 10-minute drive, you can visit St. George's castle, built in the early 16th century. Within a 15-minute drive, you can visit the monastery of Saint Gerasimos for a glimpse of its ornate interior and the mummified body of the saint himself. Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia, can also be reached with a 15-minute drive. You can visit Argostoli for the fruit markets, souvenirs, bakeries, cafes or many wonderful restaurants. Be sure to spend an evening in the square where you can have an ice cream, frappe, crepe or mixed drink while watching the town come alive and gather. Other notable drives include a visit to the underground Lake Mellisani and Dragorati Cave. It is a beautifully scenic drive to Myrtos Beach and the picturesque towns of Assos, Fiskardo and Sami.

We welcome you to enjoy our home as much as we do on the idyllic Greek island of Kefalonia.

About George and Rebecca

I am a Greek American with deep roots in Kefalonia. My father was born and raised on this idyllic island and still lives there today. Both our sons were baptized in Kefalonia and we continue to visit the island every summer. My wife and I love the spirit and beauty of this island so much that we decided to own a piece of paradise.

George and Rebecca purchased this villa in 2012

Why George and Rebecca chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

When my wife and I first saw this property, it was a small olive grove. We fell in love with the peace and tranquility that enveloped the plot. With a panoramic view of the Ionian Sea to the south and Mount Ainos to the North, the home is truly surrounded by beauty.

What makes this villa unique

With an unobstructed view of the sea, Villa Pessada provides a sensation that you are on the bow of ship, alone on the ocean. We have taken the time to create an atmosphere of luxury and serenity when we built our home in Pessada. We would love to share this experience with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were the first people to stay in this beautiful villa and we were so very impressed. Everything had been thought of: the kitchen was so well equipped, the bedding was superb and all the facilities were first class. Everything is scrupulously clean. This is not a five star villa - it is at least an eight star! Extremely well finished and a beautiful location for a villa holiday. The views are breathtaking.

George (Senior) and his wife Maria were lovely -very helpful, welcoming with glorious Greek hospitality. Lorna and Ray the Managers were also very helpful. All the transactions with George (Jr) and his wife Rebecca were also smooth and trouble free. They are a lovely family who care about their customers.

We will definitely return and also recommend to everyone we know. Thanks to the Totolos Family for building and making such a fantastic and idyllic place to stay.

Absolutely beautiful property on a stunning island..

  • 5 of 5

The villa is every bit as fantastic as the pictures suggest, a stand out property in a extremely quiet and relaxing village. The 6 of us enjoyed every day in kefalonia, wether we were out exploring the island or simply relaxing by the pool this property allowed us the holiday we wished for. It is located about 20 minutes from Agolstoli and around 40 minutes from Skala therefore offering a good central location for getting around the island. Wendy and Dave met us at the airport helped us to the villa and aided us with any queries, although there really wasn't much required as far as help goes as the information pack provided to us gave us everything we needed to know about the property, local amenities and even as far as the local Greek culture. We will be booking our next holiday here without any doubt as 1 weeks is nowhere near enough time to see everything this island has to offer.

Perfect Family Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home from June 5th to June 12th 2016, and were married outside by the pool. We couldn't have found a more romantic setting to exchange our vows!

The home is absolutely beautiful, and the location is amazing with views to die for!! The house itself is perfectly appointed and feels like a North American home, which is a rarity in Greece! The pool area is stunning, with views across the water to Zakynthos.

The house itself has everything you and your family might need to make your holiday on Kefalonia a most memorable experience, the five bedrooms are beautifully appointed (super comfortable beds), and the bathrooms are large and beautiful, with full sized showers and lots of room (a rarity in Greece). The huge kitchen has all the modern amenities one could ask for, the WiFi was the best we encountered during our entire month in Greece, no dropped signals or lag, again a rarity in Greece.

We would return here in a heartbeat and highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a wonderful, quiet, and modern place to spend their vacation. You would have to look for a very long time to beat this amazing house!! We're definitely coming back.

The most perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a triple celebration for my wife and I (2 birthdays and a big wedding anniversary)

We travelled with our 2 daughters and their families, so our party consisted of 6 adults and our 3 grandchildren (aged 2, 3 and 6)

When we saw the property on-line we were confident that it would be perfect for us in terms of size, location, layout, facilities and privacy. We were absolutely correct as the villa exceeded our expectations in every way.

To be honest the pictures on the website do not do it justice as the gardens are now mature, well planted and very beautiful with one side of the pool area lined with lavender. The large garden areas are very, very pretty and immaculately maintained.

The pool is lovely and well maintained also (very unobtrusive) and the views are unbeatable in our opinion. The views really are stunning and we never tired of getting up to such gorgeous vistas. Early morning was particularly beautiful as the sun rose over the mountains to illuminate the coastline.

The inside of the villa is exactly as the pictures, pristine, first class and well cared for.

Our master suite bedroom and bathroom were beautiful and had the most comfortable, large and highest bed that we have ever slept in.

We should also mention Dave and Wendy, the property managers.

Dave met us at the airport and waited while we collected our hire cars from Pefanis (recommended, spot on, they do what they say on their website) in the arrivals hall. He then led us to the villa where we met Wendy and they showed us round the property and gave us good information and contact numbers etc. Really good service and very friendly people. They should be proud of the service that they provide.

George dealt with the booking and any questions that we had quickly on-line and our breakage deposit was refunded promptly. It was a pleasure to meet George's parents, George senior and Marie along with their cute little white dog which our grandchildren loved.

Summing up - we have stayed at other lovely villas, both on the island and elsewhere, but this villa gave us all a beautiful holiday in a beautiful location.

The best ever in all our opinions.

When we arrived at the villa we were blown away, the place was magnificent! Really luxurious and spacious. The views out across the sea are fantastic and the facilities are amazing. We spent to much time out the back around the pool and has a really relaxing holiday.

Dave met us at the airport and showed us the way back. He and Wendy (his wife) were amazing during our stay. Full of info about the area and where to visit and really helpful. They went above and beyond and made our holiday so much more relaxing.

We met George Snr (George's dad) and his wife during our stay as the dropped in for a visit to check we were ok. The booking of the villa with George was seamless and he replied to emails quickly.

Overall a fantastic holiday and we will definitely be back.

Absolute paradise!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we set eyes on the Villa in the distance, we knew straight away that it was going to exceed all of our expectations.

Firstly, when we arrived at the airport we were greeted by Dave one of the housekeepers who was so lovely and couldn't help us enough with our baggage and finding our hire car. He then kindly took some of our bags and then guided us to the villa which was only a 15 minute journey. Dave was a book of knowledge and gave us so many tips on local supermarkets, nice places to eat and many other useful tips! Dave's wife Wendy greeted us at the villa which she had spotlessly cleaned, she showed us round, helped us with any questions we had and even provided some essential groceries.

The villa itself is magnificent, the views some of the best i've ever seen. The 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 beautiful bathrooms were perfect for us as a family of 6 adults and 2 children but there was also plenty of space for more! The villa has been furnished to an extremely high specification with absolutely everything you could possibly need! The large pool was immaculately maintained and nearly everyday it was checked and the filters cleaned etc. We spent alot of time at the villa, it was just so beautiful and we were so relaxed and happy there with everything we needed. Daytimes were spent mostly enjoying some of the local food (and beer!!) and swimming in the pool. In the evenings we ate together on the terrace, watched the sun set and then sat for hours enjoying the views; the villa is lit beautifully at night and we enjoyed the different colours that you could light the pool up with. We also enjoyed playing our music through the speakers which can be heard inside/outside or both - they really have thought of everything!

George Jnr made sure that the booking/payment process was faultless, he replied to emails very promptly and answered many of my questions. George's father, George Snr and his wife also play a huge part in making sure that guests enjoy their stay. They brought us home made food cooked by the lovely Maria and even some icecreams for our kids; they are lovely lovely people.

This was a really special holiday, one which we had saved for and looked forward to for so long. It exceeded all of our expectations and we have already booked again for next year! We are thrilled that we have been lucky enough to stay in the stunning Villa Anna Rebecca and will be counting down the days until our next trip.

Thank you so much!
