About Anne Mitchell

I am originally from Scotland but have lived on the island for the past 30 years. I am married to a local and we have a jewellery business in Argostoli Town. I came to work on Kefalonia for a British tour operator before marrying and starting my family. I have 2 children who are currently both studying at university in the UK. In the winter I love to travel and generally get back to visit my family at a couple of times a year. Kefalonia is a great place to live and I love the busy hot summers as much as the quiet cool winters.

Anne Mitchell purchased this villa in 2016

Why Anne Mitchell chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

The villa is just so conveniently located for sight seeing and visiting nearby beaches. The main town is close enough to enjoy a night out if you want or need anything from the larger market when shopping. The proximity to the airport, which has only a small number of flights daily, make your arrival and departure days all the more stress free and easy. The views are wonderful from the house, we love to watch boats coming and going and the sunsets are worth staying home for. The villa is very well equipped with many facilities such as gym equipment, hot tub, gamesroom and infinity pool with BBQ area. The property really is lovely, finished to a high standard and offers more than the average villa rental.

What makes this villa unique

The villa really has the most amazing view. The sunsets are wonderful and its just a joy to sit on the veranda and take it all in while relaxing and having a meal, drinking a glass of wine or reading.

The feeling you get from the large gated property, location and the facilities really make the house feel special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The peaceful village of Minies (pronounced Min-yez) sits on a green, wooded hillside enjoying breathtaking seaviews, and cool summer breezes on hot summer days. It's known for it's great location with no fewer than 10 superb beaches within 2 to 10 min drive. Watersports can be enjoyed on Makris Yialos beach and all have sunbeds and parasols. The island's small airport is a short trip making arrival and departure days fast and easy. Nearby are the villages of the Livatho area to explore. There are many mini-markets, village tavernas and cafe-bars for you to enjoy during your stay. Minies's situation on Kefalonia's central, west coast make it the best location for island exploring. The island's northern or southern most points take little more than an hours leisurely drive. 10 minutes away is Argostoli, the islands capital. A busy little town with a bustling sea front promenade full of private yachts, ferry's coming and going and traditional fishing boats selling fish straight from the days catch. See the turtles in the harbour by the fishing boats and watch them being fed by the fishermen. The shopping street and main square have many cafe's to enjoy cool drinks and the Greek pastime of 'people watching'.

Lovely, spacious villa with great views!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Kefalonia and it was great to be met at the airport by the villa owner, Anne, who was a very friendly, welcoming and helpful host during our stay. Conveniently located just a short drive from the airport, Lassi, Argostoli and local beaches; this spacious villa is set in its own extensive, private grounds and has lovely views out to sea, where we watched amazing sunsets! The property has everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing holiday and is very well appointed, maintained, clean and tidy. We would highly recommend it.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

As regular visitors to Greek Islands for some years we are familar with the range and standard of Villa options and without doubt this is the best two bedroomed Villa we have stayed in. Finished to a very high standard, it benefits from a quiet location and occupies a generous plot with a substantial garden and great view. For those who dont want to travel too far it is also just 10mins from the airport.The pictures don't really do it full justice.Anne,the owner, is a delightful, knowledgeable and completely helpful host.

Amazing luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa exceeded our expectations and photographs didnt do it and the view justice. A home from home villa with everything you could possibly need. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. The owner made us feel very welcome and was always at the end of the phone or ten minutes away.

Will definately be returning to stay for the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.

Beautiful villa in pefect setting

  • 5 of 5

This is really the most stunning villa in an absoluteley fabulous location in a very quiet setting. Set in beautiful gardens the accommodation is very comfortable and well furnished with everything that you would need for a relaxing holiday. There are views across to Zakynthos to one side and to Lixori and beyond the other side with the ocean and Minnies beach immediately below. The villa is equiped with everything we needed, it was kept very clean including all of the outside areas and pool. It is close to both some good local restaurants and fine beaches and also only a short drive from Argostoli. This is the second time we have stayed here and we would certainly recommend this to friends and family and will certainly be staying there again.

splendidi tramonti

  • 5 of 5

Casa molto bella, in ottimo stato e rispondente alle caratteristiche indicate sul sito. La sig.ra Mitchell, ottima e gradevolissima ospite è venuta ad accoglierci al nostro arrivo all'aeroporto e ci ha fornito le indicazioni necessarie per il soggiorno. La casa è situata in posizione comoda per la visita dell'intera isola e vicina alla città principale.

Da consigliare.
