Overview

About the property

Villa in Markata, nearby Agia Efimia, Kefalonia - In A Tranquil, Traditional Village Just 5 Min Drive To The Picturesque Harbour Agia Efimia & Myrtos

Avisania Villa is a lovely country house, perfectly equipped, offering privacy and high quality accommodation for up to 4-5 people (2 air-conditioned bedrooms).

It is situated in the small and typical Greek village of Markata: a peaceful and tranquil village, approx. 5 km from the picturesque yachting port of Agia Efimia, embedded in the high mountains of Pylaros. The famous beach of Myrtos, definitely the most beautiful beach of Kefalonia, is only 5 km from the villa. Surrounding Agia Efimia there are numerous clear blue pebble coves and beaches, ideal for snorkelling. The location is ideal for nature lovers and hikers. You can walk for example the main road to Agia Efimia. You will pass through an old traditional village, above the valley of Pylaros and facing Agia Efimia and the sea. You can also walk to the beautiful Monstery of Themata (approx. 4 km) which offers spectacular views. Markata is located in the centre of the island, and is thus an ideal base for exploring the island.

The villa is surrounded by spacious terraces offering both sunny and shaded areas. The pool and the pool terrace (with relaxing sun beds and sun umbrella) are on the south-western side. This location offers plenty of sun during the whole day, privacy and a panoramic view of the sea, Agia Efimia and the surrounding mountains. On the eastern side there are 2 terraces made of natural stone and furnished with comfortable garden furniture. There is plenty of space for children to play. A very old olive tree adds Mediterranean charm and provides shade and pleasant coolness even in the hottest summer months.

About Lida Kougianou

Though I was born in Athens, I am a half Kefalonian and have spent a lot of my childhood holidays on this beautiful island. I always loved this place, its stunning natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the people. I was lucky being able to turn my passion into a business and set up an agency specialized in lovely, exclusive Holiday Rentals in Kefalonia.

“Kefalonia Holiday Homes”, operating since 2000, is by now successfully established. My team and I travel around the island and carefully select beautiful places to stay, in unique and calm locations, highly equipped and beautifully furnished, providing all comfort and privacy you look for in your holidays.

We know personally all properties and their owners. So, we are able to answer your every question and make sure, the accommodation you choose, is the right one for you.

Our services include:

- Quick response to your enquiries (within 24 hours at the latest, mostly much earlier).

- Reliable and helpful answers regarding the property, its equipment, distances and the area (due to personal knowledge of the island and the properties)

- Flexibility (wherever possible) regarding changeover days, duration of stay, change of booking dates, persons, etc.

- Information and assistance by planning your travelling (taxi transfers, information on reliable car rental companies, ferry schedules, reservation for ferries, etc.)

- Instant and efficient support during your stay in Kefalonia

Just get in touch by email or by phone and start creating your unforgettable holidays in Kefalonia

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the best holiday ever - both Kefalonia and Villa Avisiania. The villa and pool were perfect especially the cleanliness and upkeep. The hospitality offered throughout the week was much appreciated. We were able to use the car to visit many different parts of the island where the scenery was always amazing and very beautiful. Eating out was easy and we especially enjoyed the local taverna in the village.

I can't think of anything that needs to be improved at the villa - just as we expected, if not better! Aug 2011.



We really enjoyed our visit to Villa Avisania. We had a very relaxing stay and will retain fond memories of our brief visit to Kefalonia. Perhaps we will return one day. Aug 2011.

Wonderful viila & pool- Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 fantastic weeks in this beautiful villa. The villa was spotless, well maintained & just as descibed on the website. Eleni the owner could not do enough for us. She brought home made wine, fruit & other treats when she came to clean & even bought us a gift when we left! The location means that you need a car, but it's only a few mins by csr to the village centre. It's our 9th year in Agia Efimia & this lovely villa & pool will definitely be home to us again!

Fantastic villa in a nice peacefull location. Exceptionally clean and beautiful maintained. Owner was very very helpful and extremely kind leaving us lot's of nice little gifts e.g. fresh eggs and salad. All theses little touches made our holiday very enjoyable. Very close by car or taxi to some beautiful restaurants. Would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a mixture of peace and quiet but with the opportunity to dip in and out on nightlife. Will definitely be back someday.please dont miss out. One thing to bear in mind you definitely need a car in this location.

Above expectation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful two week stay in Villa Avisania. The villa provides you with every comfort one can imagine. It is in a quiet unspoiled location. The wonderful village of Agia Efimia though is near. There are splendid restaurants and the village is very pretty.

The house really feels like home. It is cosy, comfortable and the swimming pool is just wonderful and very private. It is centrally located on the island, so we enjoyed touring the beautiful Island of Keffalonia. The house is very well maintained and we even found regular supply of fresh eggs in the fridge. Eleni, thank you very much for you kindness!

We had the most amazing vacation in this splendid spot and we would love to return to it! We recommend it for people you look for a peaceful surrounding and yet close to all the ameneties you want.
