Description

Villa Alexandra

Set in the most favourable and tranquil location in the village of Sarlata, amidst luscious olive and cypress groves and taking full advantage of the space and the view, these two villas offer the highest standards of accommodation in the idyllic island of Kefalonia. The villas were completed in spring 2008 ensuring complete privacy. Spaciously laid out over three floors, with many verandas and patios with pergolas and breathtaking views to the Ionian Sea – from the coastline of Lixouri to Dias Island, Zakynthos and the endless horizon, these two exclusive villas guarantee an unforgettable stay. Elegant and modern, the decoration and architecture successfully combine minimalist contemporary elements with traditional Kefalonian details. EACH villa has its own private entrance and parking area, private pool of 45m2 with Jacuzzi, sun terraces, lounger’s and parasols and stands in its own stunning grounds of 1000m2. The villas are twin, but separated by fence, not sharing any facilities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello,

we have just return from a 10 days vacation in Kefalonia at Alexandra Villa. We drove by car almost 3.000 km (including the way back) but it was worth it a lot. The Alexandra villa is absolutely wonderful from all points of view (a location with an impressive view to the sea and above the village, villa with everything you want from pool, relaxing area, interiors of the villa, kitchen very well equipped, etc). Everything is well maintained and looks like new and very, very clean.

The location is near the interesting beaches, you will find in the nearby a mini market or even a pharmacy if you need, and also you are near the capital of the island if you want to go to the town. Even the villa is near the airport (aprox 3-4 km), this aspect is not an inconvenient being from kids point of view, an attraction because you will see from the distance how the planes lands or takes off on/from the island without to hear a disturbing noise.

The Kefalonia island is beautiful and to discover it you will need for sure a car (if you will go by plane) but on the island you will find plenty offers for rent a car. During these days (with unstable greek situation), you will need to have with you extra cash to avoid bank problems or card payments, so in my opinion, cancelling your reservation is a mistake because having enough cash with you and being on a island not on the continent you will not feel these days greek's problems.

During the stay, we kept in touch with Elina (the owner of the villa) and she was available to give us all the necessary information.

We fully recommend Alexandra or Elina villas from Sarlata / Kefalonia, and we are taking seriously into consideration to return next year. It was a pleasure to have the summer vacation in that location.



PS: The location looks better in reality compared with the site presentation, which is also very attractive :)

Luxury home from home

  • 5 of 5

June 2017, 4 of us stayed at the Villa. It is literally a few minutes from the airport.

Elina kindly arranged for a taxi to pick us up (20 euros) and also liaised with the car hire company (Greekstones - rent a car) to delivery the car to the villa on the morning of day 2.

Villa Alexandra was perfect for our week in the sun. It is well equipped both internally and externally as the website shows (photos are accurate).

The proximity to Lassi is great (5-10mins) as there is a superb beach there with excellent facilities, Argastoli is a further few minutes by car. We ventured to the north of the island to visit the picturesque fishing port of Fiskardo, passing the amazing view/beach at Myrtos. The journey took around 2 hours and is not for the faint hearted.

There are a few large supermarkets outside of Argostoli, I would give Lldl a miss and go across the road to A&B Supermarket (i think that was the name) cleaner, greater choice and better value.

Something to note, there's a family of cats that live around the villa, mum dad and a kitten. They were very thin when we arrived but we bought tins of food for then from the shops. They actually completed our holiday, as pet people we very much warmed to them and by the end of the week, they'd all put on a lot of weight.

There's a guest book in the villa that mentions the cat's and someone actually bragged about NOT feeding them, pretty heartless in my opinion.

To sum up, a great villa, perfect location, excellent amenities, caring owners. Would I go back? Definitely.

Beautiful villa that has it all

  • 5 of 5

Amazing villa, fully equipped, great location. Stunning views and amazing pool. Great BBQ and outdoor dining area.

Shops and restaurants only 10 mins away and the local Makris beach is stunning.

Villa owners are great and the cleaner everyday is awesome.

I'll be booking again for next year👍

5 Star Villa near airport

  • 5 of 5

Booked Villa Alexandra for two weeks in July. I at the time didn't realise how close the Villa is to the Airport but fear not fellow travellers although its close it does not disturb your stay at all. You can see the runway from the garden but the Villa is above the airport on a hill which makes for interesting viewing. Beds comfortable AC worked well (it was in the 30's every day) BBQ area fantastic, maid service great but we asked for every other day which was enough, the maid even tided my teenagers bedroom every visit ! . Location is good for Capital which has many great resturants and a very good food market and bakers. Elina booked us a day on a yacht from Argistoli which was a great way of seeing the Island. Pool is by far the best we have had at a Villa and we loved the spa pool at night. Plenty of parking and private gates which work on a remote is a great Idea. Would highly recommend the villa.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place, the views from the pool are breathtaking and were a pleasure to wake up to every morning. The pool is huge and with a large jacuzzi and big barbecue area you don't want to leave the villa.

We had a fantastic week in villa Alexandra, and will certainly return.

Fantastic setting and Villa - no regrets

  • 5 of 5

This is a great villa, perfect for families and groups alike. Its well maintained and equipped, very close to the airport - but far enough away not to be affected by the arrivals and departures, at least for us it didn't have an impact. While the interior is well furnished, its the outside space that is the real winner and if like us you spend most of your time outside then you can't ask for a better setting with great views and pool/jacuzzi. Cleaned daily and our rooms were tidied also. Although its located just a few kilometers from the airport and shops, you will probably struggle without a car or some form of transport (scooter is perfect for travelling around the local area and island) due to the steep hill its located on - this is probably the only thing you will need to take into consideration when booking. On the flip side you wouldn't get views like you do if you were not on such a hill! its just 10mins drive to the capital Argostoli and all the amenities and restaurants there, with Lassi, the largest local resort with the best beach in the area (Makris Gialos) also on the same road about 7 mins drive away. Highly recommended!

Wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings . Vila and pool perfect, just as advertised. Daily maid service was greatly appreciated. Many beaches and restaurants within easy reach by car, as was the capital Argostoli. Would highly recommend this property.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Kefalonia at 2 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : In Lakithra, Svoronata, Kourkoumelata, Lassi at 1 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Sami Port at 25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : In Lakithra at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Ammes, Minies, Ai Helis at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

The two luxury villas are set in the most favorable and tranquil location in the village of Sarlata, in the Livathos region of Kefalonia. Sarlata is a unique village located 10 minutes from Argostoli, the capital, 5 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from the islands main resort of Lassi and is ideally situated for exploring the whole of Kefalonia. The area has an abundance of small traditional Greek villages where you will find taverns serving Greek and Kefalonian dishes. Some of the most beautiful sandy beaches of the southern part of the island, like Makris and Platis Gialos in Lassi, Avithos, Minies and Ai Helis are a few minutes drive away, while the nearest beach, Ammes, is only 1km away.
