                  Katirinia Garden Villa is a stylish house located in the small traditional Greek village of Metaxata. It is set in a small rural residential area of the village, and overlooks green fields and meadows to the rear. The house is furnished in a modern style while still retaining a traditional feel. The main living area leads out onto a spacious patio area and small garden with a dining area where you can enjoy those balmy summer evenings. The house is set in the traditional village of Metaxata; the village has several colourful gardens and a pretty village square with views to Mount Enos. Metaxata is a historical village, Lord Byron stayed in Metaxata for a few months, and it is where he wrote his epic poem, Don Juan. The natural beauty of Kefalonia and the friendliness of the locals inspired many of his love poems. As well as being a traditional and historical village, Metaxata has facilities such as a mini-market and one of the best Souvlaki houses on the island, ideal to walk to for a taste of the Gyros, Bifteki and other mouth-watering dishes. A 10 minute stroll will bring you to the fabulous taverna 'Elaionas' in Keramies, walk through the luscious gardens and across the small bridge that crosses over the pond and enjoy great traditional Greek food and wine in a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The next village of Lakithra, which is about 15 minutes walk away has many facilities, the baker opens each morning (except Sundays) and sells his 'bake of the day', why not call in and place your order for the week, he will gladly call round each morning and deliver to your door. Lakithra also has wonderful confectioners; the cakes are amazing but be prepared to leave your diets at home!!!! Katerinia Garden Villa is in an ideal location as it is only a 15-minute drive away from the capitol of the island, Argostoli. Here you will find butchers, bakers, chemists, fruit and vegetable markets, banks, cafes, souvenir shops, delightful boutiques. It is well worth a visit to stroll around the square and enjoy tasting some of the excellent and exquisite cakes at one of the pavement cafes while watching the world go by. Also a must is to stroll along the harbour front at Argostoli and watch the fishermen coming in with their catch of the day, they are very happy to clean and prepare the fish for you and are very reasonably priced, ideal for BBQ's. There are lots of places within easy access from the villa, the beautiful beaches of Avithos, Ammes, Minies are all only a short distance frorm the villa. If you feel like venturing further and exploring more of the island, visit Mount Enos for wonderful flora and fauna, the quaint and unforgettable fishing village of Assos. The far north of the island you will find the village of Fiskardo, wonderful tavernas selling local dishes with plenty of fresh fish, enjoy your lunch on the harbour front while watching the fish jumping out of the water for bread, or even do a bit of star watching, stars like Oprah Winfrey, Michael Douglas have been spotted, or simply look longingly at the impressive and luxurious yachts moored in the harbour. Drive down to the south of the island, along the winding coastal road and stop off to visit some of the beautiful villages such as Lourdas, Vlahata, Katelios. For more hustle and bustle visit the resort of Skala, great for water sports, lots of tavernas on the beachfront to while away a lunch hour or two! There is so much to see and do for all tastes here on the wonderful island of Kefalonia, Katerinia Garden Villa is a 'modern house with a traditional feel' where you will feel at home immediately. The friendly Greek neighbours will be only too happy to chat and give you some local tips on best wine buys and best places to eat.. To give you that extra peace of mind, shortly after you arrive you will be met at the villa by the property manager, Angela, who will spend a few minutes with you to acquaint you with the house and give you lots of tips on where to go, best places to eat etc., You will also be provided with an emergency telephone number which operates 24 hours a day.

                  To make your holiday extra special and to give you that total 'break away from it all' we can offer the services of our personal chef. You can enjoy watching her cook or relax in the garden while she prepares your meals, serves the meal to you and generally 'pampers' you while you put your feet up!. Details of prices and menu are available on enquiry.
