Overview

About the property

Villa in Metaxata, Kefalonia with free Wi-FI. EOT Licence # 0458K92000499201

This lovely 2 bedroomed villa in the village of Metaxata, South West of Kefalonia, is ideally located for touring this beautiful Island and beaches. Full cooker, washing machine, large fridge freezer, air conditioning, free wi-fi and Internet television. Metaxata is only (10 kilometers) 10 minutes drive from the capital Argostoli and the busy resort of Lassi. A variety of lovely sandy beaches and the airport are 10 to 15 mins away. The fortress of Saint George the old capital of Kefalonia is close by and has spectacular views. There is a small supermarket and a Gyro/Souvlaki bar in the village and 2 excellent Tavernas within 5 to 10 minutes walking distance. Lakithra the next village (1 Km) has supermarket, bakery, Pizza/Greek Restaurant and Cafe. We recommend the Byzantio Pool Bar in Klismata for swimming, also the Mouikis Village in Lakithra which offers swimming pool, tennis courts and bar for public use.

About Jacqui Jackson

We live in the Isle of Man with our 2 sons, Luke & Richard. Our daughter Amy lives in England with her partner Steve and daughters Lexi & Thea. We love our home in Kefalonia and plan to spend more time there when we retire.

Jacqui Jackson purchased this villa in 2005

Why Jacqui Jackson chose Metaxata

After returning to Kefalonia for a few years we decided we would like to buy a property. We viewed many properties but when we stopped at a field full of olive trees and looked at the wonderful view we knew exactly where we wanted the property built.

What makes this villa unique

It is so peaceful and the views beautiful. The olive tree in the centre of the garden offers natural shade from the midday sun and it has lovely views. A wonderful place to have lunch or to read a book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed at this beautiful villa from 19 August to 2 September 2015 .

Upon arrival at the airport we were getting into the most likeable and friendliest Ivor who escorted us to the villa and has provided all the information in order to fully enjoy our vacation. The villa is just like the pictures , welcoming , complete with every comfort (we even found a pantry stocked with basic necessities , information leaflets on all tours , books, CDs , mosquito platelets ... ) and really BEAUTIFUL . Dine on the porch with the sound of crickets and the starry sky is something inexplicable ! we felt really at home and we would not be allocated more !

I recommend everyone to stay there and I hope one day to be back too!

Thanks Colin and Ivor Thanks Pam &

Further Details:

Avithos Beach

Avithos is a rural area where olive trees and citrus orchards abound. A rocky outcrop divides the long sandy beaches of Avithos and Megalipetra, with the whole coastline facing the tiny island of Dias with views over to Zakynthos on a clear day.

The area of Avithos and the village of Svoronata nearby is perfect for people who enjoy walking in the countryside and discovering the wealth of herbs, flowers and birds to be found in this area. There are orchards and olive groves amid the pine trees, which offer shade for early morning or evening walkers.

For beach lovers, the sea at Avithos and Megalipetra is shallow and the beaches are generally uncrowded making it a safe haven for children. At Avithos Beach there is a family run taverna by the beach which opens for the summer and in high season a small cantina parks on the beach serving drinks and is open into the night with another taverna near by.
