Single storey, open plan, light and airy, holiday living, what’s not to love when you take a vacation in Villa Gerasimos, on the south west coast of the bewitching island of Kefalonia, in the Ionian Sea. Located in the rural setting of the historic village of Svoronata, this four bedroom villa can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests, perfect for a family or friends’ sharing holiday.

The villa is built on four thousand square metres of private land, behind its own private gates and stone wall, and is surrounded by lush green lawns and ancient olive trees. This new build architect designed property is a generous two hundred and eight square metres, and its unique one storey, no steps, no stairs, is ideal for those with mobility issues. Villa Gerasimos has its own private parking within the grounds, and comes with complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout. The property is built of grey sandstone, has polished concrete floors, and floor to ceiling bi-folding doors that let in the light and air. The interiors are uber contemporary cool, with a modern semi-industrial twist, there’s some seriously funky fabulous furnishings, and it is decorated in various shades of grey with splashes of primary colours.

Follow the stone paving to the middle of the villa and enter the property to reveal a light and airy open plan living space. The seating area has a huge elephant grey comfy sofa with an attached chaise longue and matching chair, scatter rugs, and coffee tables, all positioned to face a flat screen smart television. The adjacent all white ten seater dining set is ideal for some impressive indoor entertaining. The modern white kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel state of the art appliances, including an American style family size fridge freezer, and that must-have morning coffee maker. There is a preparation island which doubles as a breakfast bar with four stools, and a separate table for six, perfect for the children’s dinner. There is a small play area for children with its own smart TV. If you must do some work on your holiday, there is an office area, with bookshelves, stocked with holiday reading, and coffee table tomes. A handy guest bathroom completes the living space. Walk down the hall to the master bedroom, where you will find a super stylish room, furnished with a queen size bed, separate closet space, floor to ceiling doors that give access onto the terrace, and an ensuite wet room with walk in shower. In the same quarters there are two twin rooms, with single beds, and a shared bathroom with a free-standing bath tub.

Access the stunning terrace, that runs across the back of the house, from the floor to ceiling doors of the living space.

Dove grey concrete flooring takes you to the ladder entry swimming pool, long enough for a few lengths before breakfast. The pool is surrounded by sun loungers and bean bags, perfect to lie back, relax, and catch up with this year’s best seller. There’s a dedicated children’s play area, a basketball net, and goal posts to keep your kids amused. Seek shade under an ancient olive tree or sun bathe on the lush green lawn. Seek solace in the on-site Greek Orthodox chapel. Enjoy a morning coffee, or meet for sundowners at sun set, at the soft grey seating area under the pergola.

Villa Gerasimos is situated in the historic village of Svoronata on the south west coast of the captivating island of Kefalonia, in the heart of the Ionian Sea. The villa is only seven hundred metres from Kefalonia’s international airport, a short five minute drive away. The rural village of Svoronata is within walking distance of the villa, and here you will find mini markets for immediate provisions, a few traditional tavernas and laid back bars, and a small harbour.

The nearest beach is only eight hundred metres from the villa, Ammes is a blue flag beach, with a verdant green backdrop, thick golden sand, and easy entry shallow waters, sunbeds, brollies, beach bars, and showers, making it ideal for families. Other nearby great beaches that you might want to try are, Ai Helis with its sandy beach, towering rock faces and volleyball nets; Megali Ammos with transparent waters and bookable sun loungers; Englina Beach with secluded coves and snorkelling; or Spasmata with its protected turtle nests. Also nearby is the lively resort town of Lassi, offering a variety of water sports, including sea kayaking, jet skiing, water skiing, boat trips, diving, and snorkelling. Lassi is blessed with two of the best beaches on the island, Makris Gialos and Platis Gialos, with soft white sand and crystalline clear waters. The town is full of souvenir shops, and local tavernas playing traditional live music, where you can dance the night away.

If you like walking, there are lots of local hiking trails where you can discover the island’s natural flora and fauna. A fifteen minute five kilometre drive south will take to Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. Argostoli is situated in a natural bay, surrounded by mountains and forests, it is a cosmopolitan town with pedestrian cobbled streets, that are home to enticing boutiques, bustling markets, welcoming cafes, and an array of family friendly restaurants. The town comes alive at night, with vibrant bars, elegant cafes, and alfresco dining. Take a walk along the palm tree lined harbour and see if you can spot the Caretta Caretta turtles, admire the yachts sailing the Med, and sip an ouzo as the sun sets. Whilst you are there book a boat trip and sail the seas to discover hidden bays and secret coves where you can swim and snorkel. For those who like to fish, there’s day boat trips for that too.

Take a drive around the island to see the sights, start with the Drogarati Cave, a natural limestone cave with an event space; visit the sacred monastery of Agios Gerasimos, an ornate church with a tomb and garden; marvel at Melissani Cave, a subterranean lake with boat tours; or climb the fortifications to the top of the Castle of Agios Georgios. The coastline towns of Poros, Fiscardo, Assos, Agia Efimia, and Skala, are all around an hours’ drive away, and well worth the visit to see quaint seaside villages, with harbours, marinas, souvenir shops, lighthouses, cafes and bars, and traditional family run tavernas serving freshly caught fish by the sea shore.  No visit to Kefalonia would be complete without a glass of local Retsina, visit a local vineyard and sample the Robolo and take home a bottle or two.

By ferry: Kefalonia has three ports: Sami (SMI), Argostoli (ARM), and Poros (PKE). If you want to arrive in Sami you should depart from Patra (GRA). In case you want to arrive to Poros or Argostoli you can depart from Killini (KIL). The trips last from 1.5 to 3 hours.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There’s lots to keep your kids amused when you stay at Villa Gerasimos on the magical island of Kefalonia. Starting with the villa with its own private pool, that has a shallow end, and as there’s no set hours they can splash and play all day. The villa is set in its own enclosed grounds and gardens, with lovely lush lawns on which they can play, and there is a dedicated children’s activity climbing frame with tree house and slide. For your older kids there is a basketball net, and goal posts to set up a football match.

Inside the villa there is a small children’s play area with its own smart television, where they can watch their favourite programmes, and there is complimentary Wi-Fi throughout so they can play on their computer games. Oh and there’s a popcorn maker too, so they can make and eat it whilst watching their most loved film. The nearest beach is just eight hundred metres away, a lovely stroll or a short drive will take you to Ammes beach, with easy entry shallow waters, and organised facilities. The coastline is populated with reputedly thirty nine fabulous family friendly beaches, particularly recommended are Anthos for its shallow waters, Xi for its gently sloping entry, Myrtis is a little livelier for your older kids, and don’t miss spending a day at Makris Gialos for its wonderful range of water sports.

A day out in the capital of Argostoli is well worth a visit, walk the cobble streets to the harbour, where they can spot the loggerhead turtles, and if they are really lucky see a dolphin or two. Atheras is super for some snorkelling, whilst Agios Thomas is known for sighting octopus and turtles. Make sure you have a family day at sea, all aboard a catamaran to island hop to nearby Zante or Ithaki, teach them to snorkel, swim in cool coves and hidden bays, before heading home at sun set. Children love a trip to the underwater Melissani Lake, with its hole in the roof that allows in different light throughout the day. Don’t miss a visit to the one hundred and fifty million year old Drogarati Cave, this amazing geological structure was only discovered when an earthquake revealed its entrance. The cave is ninety five metres underground, and is always at an ambient temperature of eighteen degree centigrade.

Explore the rock formations as they count the stalagmites and stalactites, and listen to the amazing acoustics. Discover the history of the island with a walk up the Venetian fortifications of the twelfth century Agios Georgios Castle, and visit its beautiful Byzantine church. Take a day trip to visit some of the coastline’s quaint villages, most notably Fiskardo with its pastel coloured Venetian architecture, and the traditional fishing village of Agia Effimia. For some family fun, recreate Homer’s journey at the nearby Odysseus Zoo Land, home to animals he would have met on his travels, and much more besides.

  • Astonishing Villa

    on 19/08/2022

    This villa is surrounded by beautiful nature of Kefalonia. We spent 7 days at this beautiful villa and we were completely satisfied. The villa is luxurious and beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Meticulously clean, we would defiantly stay here again.

  • We will be back!!!

    on 06/07/2022

    Beautiful villa with all the features and facilities that you could wish for including a lovely pool and a play area in the garden. The owner was always on hand to help and I would highly recommend the villa.

    What can I say about Villa Gerasimos in Svoronata, Kefalonia. It’s the perfect place to spend a wonderful, relaxing holiday with your friends and family. The location is great, it’s within easy reach of beaches, tavernas, the holiday resorts and the capital Argostoli. It’s essential to hire a car, but that’s really the only way to explore the island anyway.

    The villa is modern and elegant, has all the necessary appliances in the kitchen, with air conditioning throughout, indoor and outdoor eating areas and kid friendly swimming pool.

    I think the best feature of the Villa is its location. It’s nowhere near busy roads, very quiet when you want it to be, but is close enough to several resorts when you need to let your hair down.

    Overall a great experience, totally recommended.
