Kefalonia, our guide to the best bits

We were out last summer with our drone to capture the very best parts of the Greek island of Kefalonia, from Myrtos Beach to Spartia , Fiscardo, Lourdas and Skala in the South, we even managed to fly right into the centre of Melissani Lake, an amazing underground lake, we have a wide selection of villas in Kefalonia all with their own pools and sea views for you to choose, all ideal to see the many sites Kefalonia has to offer, we hope you enjoy our film guide.

Winter in Crete,

Winter Villas in Crete, Crete without the crowds

If you’ve ever visited Crete in the summer and wondered what it was like  pre tourism –  we now offer the opportunity to come and see for yourself. 

Crete in the winter
Crete, Empty beaches in Autumn & Winter

Out of season there are empty beaches for a brisk walk, uncrowded museums, markets where you jostle only with locals and Chania’s almost traffic free  backstreets to fully appreciate the Venetian, Greek and Ottoman mix of architecture.  Walkers will have tracks and paths to themselves and  with an average, in November, of 5 hrs sunshine per day and  temperatures  around  18 deg. it is ideal for being out and about.

A select few of our Villa owners have offered to welcome guests up to the end of December. They and we are confident you’ll love this unique experience.  Each Villa in our Crete Winter Villas Collection has  a roaring fire, is close to a village with a taverna that stays open for the locals (so you know it’s good) and has a pool ready for use, by only the bravest. 

Just Added, Villa Kalypso, Spartia, Kefalonia

Villa Kalypso, Infinity Pool, Spartia, Kefalonia

The 2020 new-build, Villa Kalypso, is already constructed to the same high specification as sister properties Villa Anna Maria, Villa Odysseus, Villa Penelope and Villa Roberta. Kalypso is set a little further up the hill from Roberta.

Like its sister properties, Villa Kalypso will sleep a family of up to six in three ensuite rooms, and as well as excellent cooking/dining and relaxing areas inside, it will offer fabulous outdoor living with an infinity pool, shady and sunny terraces and a BBQ kitchen.

It is cleverly sited to provide maximum privacy and fabulous sea views. A footpath winds down to a natural rock platform furnished with parasols and sunbeds, known by the locals as Amandakis Beach, where a fixed ladder provides direct access to the sea. (Families with younger children will find gently shelving sand only 5kms away by car.)

Available for stays from 1st May 2020, Villa Kalypso is already open for booking, with prices for seven nights starting from £1223, rising to £3323 in August. Any day arrival, any length of stay (5+ nights) even in peak season so there’s lots of flexibility, and potential for anything from 5 nights to three weeks stays.
