What Oliver loves…
- For any budding actors and actresses, you’re in luck as there’s a traditional open air Greek amphitheatre in the garden!
- Should your roaming instincts get the better of you, then the iconic sightseeing hotspots of both Melissani Lake and the Drogorati Caves are less than a 5-minute drive away from Villa Utopia
- For beach worshipers, you’re in luck, as both Anti Sami beach and Myrtos beach (both made famous by the Captain Corelli’s Mandolin movie) can be found less than a 15-minute drive from the villa
What you should know…
- This might not be the best villa for those wishing to partake in a spot of skinny dipping, as there are another 3 villas situated in this large plot of land (the villas and pool areas are NOT overlooked, but….)
Villa Kirki is the perfect holiday base for anyone wishing to relax in beautifully tended gardens, soak up the sun around an attractive private swimming pool and who enjoy long enjoyable barbecues whilst sipping a chilled glass of wine. Inside, the living/dining area is modern, bright and inviting with patio doors opening on to the pool terrace, making al fresco lunches around the pool a very popular pastime.
The comfortable outside terrace furniture ensures that many hours are spent admiring the mesmerising views of the surrounding countryside. To one side, a shaded terrace houses the barbecue for al fresco meals and evenings spent listening to the cicadas and goats’ bells in the distance, this truly is an oasis you’ll never wish to vacate.
However, should you wish to, getting out and about could not be easier. A stroll of about fifteen minutes takes you along to the gorgeous beach and lovely waterfront shops, restaurants and café bars in nearby Karavomylos, whilst a drive of less than 5 minutes brings you to another delightful village, Sami, well known for its eclectic selection of café bars, restaurants, shops and its stunning beach, Anti Sami beach (a 2-3-minute drive further on from Sami). For those who enjoy exploring vast blue flagged beaches, and escaping the crowds, this is the perfect corner of Kefalonia to holiday in, as the nearby beaches of Anti Sami, Myrtos and Poros offer just that, and more. Also, why not explore the nearby Melissani Lake, once known as the cave of the nymphs, well, until the roof caved in!
