LOCATION OF THE PROPERTY
Our holiday house Askethosos is located in Kefalos. Kefalos is a small village, built on a mountain, on the southwest side of the island of Kos, which is a part a of the archipelago of the Dodecanese and is located in the Greek Aegean. The houses in Kefalos are arranged close to each other. The tightly streets were once intended only for the people and their donkeys. In ancient times, it was the first capital of the island. Today the village has about 3000 inhabitants.
On a 9500 m² plot, located in the wildlife reserve of Kefalos, are two identical cottages - Villa Askethros and Villa Platanos. We, the owners, are living here as well.
Villa Askethros is located at 105 meters above sea level. You have a fantastic view to the Aegean Sea and our neighboring islands. The traditional village Kefalos, whose center is 2 km away, is located at the same level.
