Find your holiday home in Kefalonia and immerse your selves in awe inspiring beauty and serenity. Choose among a wide selection of Kefalonia Villas with Infinity Pool above breathtaking landscapes, relax to the fullest and create the most amazing memories. All villas are furnished in high standards with cooking facilities and private swimming pools with uninterrupted panoramic sea views, and offer virtually complete privacy. We picked for you 3 stunning villas in exquisite locations to enjoy custom-styled vacations in Kefalonia.

Villa Asteri

An elegant and smart split-level home, offering a touch of rustic Greek ambience combined with every modern comfort and stunning uninterrupted sea views, close to the resort of Skala, and with a choice of fabulous beaches nearby. Villa Asteri is tucked away in a secluded position on the lower part of the south facing slopes of Old Skala, with views of Skala bay and the Ionian island of Zante. The villa is built in a style that blends with its rural surroundings whilst offering high levels of comfort. Villa Asteri is an exceptionally well designed and appointed “home away from home” with many thoughtful touches and details adding to it’s undisputed quality.

Villa Caretta

Villa Caretta is an impressive, spacious and modern villa, with magnificent views over both Mounda beach and Katelios bay, set on the gentle, wooded slopes of the hillside above the community of Ratzakli on Kefalonia. Kaminia or Mounda, the island’s major turtle nesting beach, is the stunning backcloth of the spectacular panoramic views enjoyed from this splendid villa. Nestling between ancient olive and wild oak trees on the western slopes, bordering Old Skala, Caretta is a tribute to modern standards of comfort and design. With its large infinity edged swimming pool, extending across almost the entire frontage of the villa and an abundant terrace on which to soak up the sun and admire the views, it is hard to imagine a more perfect combination.

Villa Stafida

Villa Stafida is a grand and imposing villa, in a peaceful rural setting, with dominant views over both Mounda beach and Katelios bay, across the Ionian sea towards the Greek island of Zante. Tucked in amongst the wild olive and cypress trees, close to Old Skala, Villa Stafida is an oasis of calm and decadent indulgence. First impressions as you approach the property is that it is more of a mansion than a holiday home. Your attention, although distracted by the view, is soon drawn to the large infinity edged swimming pool, surrounded by an expanse of terrace with accommodating sun loungers just waiting to welcome you. Designed and built in a fashion that effortlessly blends traditional stone facades with ultra modern, cool interiors, the villa will appeal to those seeking a high degree of comfort and style.
