About the owners: The property is owned by the Metaxas family, who have been one of the leading families in Kefalonia since the eighteenth century. The site of Villa Katerina was originally bought by the present owner’s great-grandfather, a ship owner who lived there until the grand old age of 104. It has been fully and tastefully refurbished and features brand new appliances and luxury furniture.
Metaxata is in the area of Livathos, considered by many to be the most desirable area of Kefalonia. The villa is situated in the centre of Metaxata and a few minutes walk from the local supermarket and small taverna.

Kefalonia is one of the Ionian islands, still largely unspoilt with scenery ranging from coniferous forest in the mountainous region to typical olive and citrus orchards in the valleys. It enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, sunny summers and mild winters. Being an island, cool breezes moderate the afternoon summer heat.
Villa Katerina enjoys a tranquil setting in the residential village of Metaxata in the picturesque south west of Kefalonia. It is surrounded by 3 acres of stunning and delightful grounds including orchards for your private use. Breathtaking views over the sea and overlooking the mountain range of Mount Aeinos and the ancient setting of St Georgos Castle.
Lose yourself, and the cares of the world in these same grounds where Lord Byron was inspired to write his famous work “Don Juan”.
Short transfer from airport. Local shop and grill bar just a few minutes walk away. The Villa is conveniently located 5 minutes from Avithos beach which has stunning views across the Ionaian Sea and 1km from the lovely village of Lakithra which features local tavernas. The main capital, Argostoli, with a treaditional market and a range of lively cafes and tavernas, is just 15 minutes away.
