Seafront, Spacious Villas Offering Privacy And Direct Access To The Beach - Villa Grand Avali Sleeps 10 (4 Bedrooms)

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Nov-2016
Steps From The Sea, Overlooking Crystal-Clear Water With Semi-Private Coast Few Meters Away

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.

You Will Not Want to Leave!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Stunning Location. Immaculate Property

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Beautiful villa by the sea

  • 5 of 5

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!

Location

From the Owner

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 with other people, in order to earn some extra income to afford to pay the tax expenses. Luckily, Cephalonia 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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : ELF Kefalonia at 10 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Taverna Galini (Alekos - St Thomas) at 60 Metres Nearest Beach : St Thomas at 60 Metres Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

The grounds surrounding the villa can provide an elegant backdrop for a wedding party or special event of up to 100 guests. For large parties or events, advance arrangements are required, and combined rental of Villa Grand Avali and Villa Avali Family is preferable .

Coast/Beach:

In front of the villas, in just 30 m distance, there is a small cove like a "natural swimming pool" where you can enjoy swimming and sunbathing on the level rocks with privacy.If you prefer a sandy beach you can descend left to the next bay, after 200 m, to meet the first beach or for more privacy, walk another 100 m, following a path to a more exotic sandy beach. Walk down the coast on the right of the villas and you will discover the most unusual rock formations and great sites for fishing.

Travel:

Kefalonia Airport is about 10 km and can be easily reached by taxi or a rented car.

There are all international car rental offices (Avis, Europcar, Hertz), as well as local car rental offices prefix to serve you.

There are also always taxis available and the transfer time is about 15 mins Taxi pick up from the airport to the villa (and vice versa) can also be arranged on your behalf !

Distances:

Avali resort is steps away from St Thomas Beach which is located on the southwestern coast of Cephalonia,only 12 km from the island’s capital, Argostoli, and 10 km from the island’s airport and 2 Km from Karavados Village.

There are no hotels in the surrounding area, and the few private villas are situated far enough to maintain an intimate atmosphere. Within walking distance there is a tavern and a beach canteen, while a short drive will bring you to several restaurants and mini markets.

Further Details:

The villas are nestled in a particularly privileged location as it provides shelter from the wind and practically guarantees calm seas during the summer, so the location is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, sea-kayaking, fishing, small boat sailing, stand up surf etc [Canoes/kayaks/ surfboards/flotation devices are provided free of charge (at your responsibility – some experience required)].

Enjoy swimming and snorkeling in Avali Cove, a "natural swimming pool" !

There are also some great walks around the villa and along the coast with the most unusual rock formations.
