4 bedroom villa - Sleeps 10. Greek tourism enterprise reg. no:(MHTE:0458K10000410201). Nestled in a small cove, just 30 meters from the sea, overlooking crystal-clear water and sandy shores, this new spacious villa offers 240 sq.m. of living space, a roofed balcony, a large veranda and scenic terraced gardens, which lead straight down to the water's edge, where a gate divides the property from the sea and the flat rocks below, suitable for sunbathing and swimming. One can also continue on to the beautiful sandy St Thomas' Beach, which is a mere 3 minutes walk from the property.
The villa's interior arrangement is 'upside down'! The spacious living room, the kitchen and one of the double bedrooms with en suite bathroom are on the upper level, while the rest of the sleeping quarters (a double bedroom with en suite bathroom and 2 twin bedrooms plus a separate bathroom) are on the lower level - a traditional Greek arrangement. There is also a playroom, equipped with a table tennis table.
Both villas, Avali Family and Grand Avali, offer privacy in exquisite surroundings—the scenic terraced gardens lead straight down to the water’s edge, where a gate divides the property from the sea and the flat rocks below, which is suitable for sunbathing and swimming. One can also continue on to the beautiful sandy St Thomas’ Beach, which is a mere 3 minutes’ walk from the property . Our villas are the ideal choice for people looking to enjoy the sun and the sea secluded from the crowded touristic areas of the island. They have direct access to the sea and are a cost-effective holiday option for families with children or a group of friends. Avali sea resort is also the ultimate honeymoon location on Cephalonia island. Special prices are available for large groups wanting to rent both villas.

Spyros Stamatelatos purchased this villa in 2006
The two villas were originally built with the purpose of serving as our private holiday homes and as such were lavishly equipped. Economic recession in Greece and the overwhelming increase of property taxes drove us to the decision of sharing the villas . Luckily, Kefalonia is one of the world’s most stunning holiday destinations and a lot of people, mainly families from Northern Europe, visit here every summer, in order to enjoy the charming beaches and the high quality resorts.
The property is just 30 meters from the coast and two minutes’ walk from the lovely sandy beach of St Thomas, in a unique location, overlooking the turquoise water of the peaceful cove below, as well as the majestic slopes of mount Ainos. The villas were originally built in 2006 and renovated in 2013, with modern needs and comforts in mind. Both villas offer luxury in exquisite surroundings and boast fantastic sea views. Enjoy the sun and the sea with privacy avoiding the stressful commute to the crowded beaches. Those who enjoy a more active holiday, can take advantage of the sea-kayaks and surfboards which are available for use to our guests free of charge.
I would unreservedly recommend you book this villa. We stayed here as a group of 8 ( 6 adults and two teens) for a two week period and are already thinking about a return visit. Spyros the owner is a super guy and was there to greet us, get us settled in and help us out as and when needed. He can e very proud of his property as it is really one of a kind being a lovely property in an amazing location.
The property is very well equipped and includes four bedrooms ( 2 had a large double bed and 2 rooms each with two twins) with an additional room with a sofa bed and three bathrooms. It comfortably accommodated our 8 people. the house is really well equipped with the kitchen having all mod cons, all bedrooms having (much needed) AC, excellent laundry facilities etc etc. everything was excellent quality and we felt we were at a hotel
While the interior is great with ample room and excellent facilities the exterior is truly the star of the show. We loved the huge deck space for lounging, dining and BBQ's , the lovely grounds, play areas including volleyball, table tennis and then the direct access to crystal clear waters, the most beautiful natural pools and St Thomas beach. It is all breathtaking.
The place is so nice you won't want to leave and explore the rest of Kefalonia! We went around the island for a few days but were always looking forward to coming back to this gem of a property - a little piece of paradise
My advice: Book up and you will not regret it.

My husband and I stayed here with friends for a week from 6th September this year.
The location is absolutely stunning and the villas position certainly makes the best use of this!!
The view from the balcony is incredible.
The villa itself is immaculate and so well equipped.
Even the bedsheets and beach towels were excellent quality.
We literally had everything we needed to hand and the owner, Spyros, allowed us to use the kayaks and canoes from the villa to paddle round the bay. He even equipped us with life jackets.
There are 3 tavernas within 3 minutes walk of the villa which we walked to and one morning floated round to on the rubber rings we acquired from a shop in Argostoli. Admittedly we may have still been a tad on the inebriated side from the previous night spent in Lassi.
A taxi will get you there for 30 euros per journey and Spyros will give you the number of the taxi guy.
Again absolutely excellent service.
The location, quality and customer service from the owner were so superb we have tried to re-book for next year but someone has already booked the dates we need.
If this wasn't the case, we would certainly not hesitate. It is quite honestly worth every penny!!
Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Villa Grand Avali. The villa was extremely spacious and well equipped with beautiful views.
The location was perfect being right by the sea with a quiet area available to place sun beds. The surrounding area is generally quiet as well, but only a twenty minute drive away from the capital city of Argostoli.
Would definitely stay again!
We were in Avali Sea Resort for 2 weeks in August and soon after we arrived we realised that we are close to heaven.The picture and the presentation are nothing compared to the reality. The villa is very well equioed , very clean , the views from the large terrase is astonishing, the sea is wonderful....It was perfect! The owner,Spyros, is a very attentive and helpfull host. We will definitely return! Highly recomended!
