About the Owner
About Ms. Maria Koralli
My brother Panos and I live in Athens and have been spending our summer holidays in Kefalonia since 1995. Having travelled all over Greece, we now know for sure that nowhere else compares to Kefalonia, an island that has a character of its own...
Panos is a civil engineer and I am a primary school teacher. In 2009, we decided to invest to a much loved place linked to those special, wonderful holiday stays on the island. During your stay we will be on hand to help you make the most of your visit with advice and tips on what to do and see and how to keep your children busy and creatively entertained!
Ms. Maria Koralli purchased this bungalow in 2009
Why Ms. Maria Koralli chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)
Having done a lot of research on the island, we found our ideal plot of land in 2009 and the villas were completed in May 2011 under the constant supervision of our father Michael who has been a civil engineer for 45 years. We love the rural tranquility of Karavados and the surrounding area, where one can find plenty of picturesque villages and clear blue beaches.
What makes this bungalow unique
'Korallis Villas' have been designed with great care and love according to the traditional Kefalonian architecture. Dining on the verandas or patios enjoying great sea and mountain views is a unique experience especially at the end of a long and busy day on the beach! Being a nature lover, I have discovered many walks in the surrounding area. There are also some fabulous tavernas close by all offering delicious traditional dishes.
