Lakithra villa description

Welcome to Gilly's place in the sun !
'This is something special: A luxury villa in the most sublime surroundings.' GUEST COMMENT.
Don't take our word for it - look at the reviews.

Villa Mac wants you to relax and enjoy yourself ..... that's all.....
IN SHORT
Villa Mac is quite simply, paradise - a holiday 'home from home' on the beautiful Greek island of Kefalonia. The property nestles on the hillside of the pretty village of Lakithra, and enjoys spectacular sea views stretching to the neighbouring island of Zakinthos, Villa Mac is waiting to welcome you. Completed in 2010 this is my piece of paradise. It was built to a very high specification and designed to offer everything you could want in a holiday 'home from home'. It has an extensively equipped kitchen, 2 living rooms (one of which is poolside & can sleep 2 if required), a relaxing verandah with comfortable seating for those sunset gin and tonics, 3 double bedrooms all with en suite wet rooms, 2 additional cloakrooms, a large pergola-covered terrace with dining table and built in barbecue, plus a second poolside dining area. The property sits in it's own grounds nestled on a ridge and has spectacular views across a verdant valley to the sea and to the neighbouring island of Zakinthos ( Zante).
The villa is located in the delightful village of Lakithra, in the district of Leivathos. Lakithra is an historic Greek village whose most famous resident was the poet Lord Byron. The hillside setting giving panoramic views of the sea to the neighbouring island of Zante, and stretching inland to Mount Ainos has to be seen to be believed, and whilst in a secluded and private location it is still just a very short walk to the local tavernas, bar and amenities in Lakithra village.
Villa Mac is in the ideal setting for peace and tranquility yet with the convenience of a local village and easy access for touring the island and local Blue Flag beaches which are just a few minutes drive away.

ABOUT THE VILLA: The villa is on three levels with air conditioning throughout.
GROUND FLOOR - contains a family sitting room leading into the kitchen. There is a cloakroom with toilet and hand basin; patio doors lead to a large balcony verandah from the sitting room with comfortable wicker furniture and a breakfast dining table. From the kitchen there is access out to a covered pergola terrace with built in BBQ area and a large dining table seating 8.
FIRST FLOOR - there are two double bedrooms (one large double and one twin) both with en-suite bathrooms, balconies and stunning views.
LOWER GROUND FLOOR- there is a third en suite double bedroom with patio doors opening onto the poolside. The second poolside living room is located here - a generously proportioned lounge and games area with TV, DVD & music system. A large sofa - bed and separate wc are also in this area. Patio Doors again lead out to the poolside and terrace areas with sun loungers, umbrellas and poolside dining.

We can put you in touch with a range of local trusted partners -

We can recommend 2 wonderful chefs ( Rory or Viva ), both of whom are terrific and offer similar services - either will come to the villa and cook you a delicious meal - both will shop and prepare local produce and discuss a menu of your choice. Guests have raved about their food and it is a real treat enabling you to really enjoy the villa in complete seclusion and luxury !

Viva will also offer a 'Learn to cook Greek style' experience in the kitchen of Villa Mac - cook with Viva and enjoy the food you have prepared on the terrace.

Need even more relaxation ? We can recommend a masseuse who will come to the villa - what better way to enjoy the poolside terrace at sunset ?

Need a babysitter ? We can recommend one of those too!

Car hire? Yes - we have a great local contact we can thoroughly recommend.

If there's something I can help you with just ask - I will always try to assist you and if I don't know, I will try and find someone who does !

                      Lakithra is an ideal location to explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia. Local amenities include tavernas, bar, mini market, bakery and patisserie with larger supermarkets and Argostoli being just a short drive away. The village was an inspiration to Lord Byron who enthused about the natural beauty of the area. The blue flag beaches of Avithos & Ammes are just a short drive away as is the airport. In short Lakithra and Villa Mac are in the perfect spot on the island for your perfect holiday.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: I had travelled extensively to Greece and her islands for many years with my late husband and we always dreamed of buying a place in the sun; visiting Kefalonia for the first time in early 2013 was a revelation and I totally fell in love with the island and its people. Fate took me by the hand and led me to Lakithra and this beautiful house - the rest was easy !

                      Why the Owner Chose Lakithra:
                      The views are stunning.It's tranquil and 'special' - everyone says that about their property but it really IS a happy place and it wrapped itself around my heart. The layout is incredibly practical and there is plenty of space to escape to and get some private downtime if there is a larger group - very important for families who want to relax and don't want to be on top of each other !! In short? It's MAGIC

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Villa Mac has peace, tranquility,serenity,real comfort in a practical layout - not just a holiday villa for rent, but a HOME in a 'real' village ( not a superficial noisy resort ) with a choice of restaurants. Avithos beach is 10 minutes' drive, as is the airport. I arrive and am in the villa having collected luggage within 15 minutes - BLISS!
