Overview

About the property

3 bedroom luxury villa with pool

Korianna House is the dream property of a well-travelled company director who fell in love with Kefalonia and spent 10 years seeking the perfect location to build. After staying in some of the world's finest hotels she was able to translate her vision of a modern, stylish escape into one of Kefalonia's most beautiful villas.

The property enjoys the benefits of both a tranquil, rural location with spectacular unspoiled views with local amenities within walking distance. The sunsets it enjoys are simply amazing.

The property has been furnished with no expense spared, with furnishings from Feather & Black, Indian Ocean, The White Company and John Lewis among others. A unique feature wall with spotlights adds a special romantic touch, as do the many candles at the villa. The kitchen is well-equipped with incredible attention to detail, including a black granite worktop and top-of-the-range Neff appliances.

Perfect for a romantic retreat or a honeymoon but also well suited to families.

Recent additions to the villa in 2015 include an Apple TV for the latest film rentals, wifi Bose speakers for use with smart devices, a tablet to enable streaming of live UK TV, satellite TV including sport and Molton Brown toiletries for guests.

There are several charming local tavernas within walking distance of the villa.

The property enjoys an extremely private pool, plenty of outdoor relaxation areas including a hammock and lemon trees that guests are welcome to help themselves to.

There are several beaches (Spartia, Avithos) within a 10-minute drive or a 20-minute walk (down a very steep hill!).

Getting to Kefalonia: Airlines flying direct from the UK to Kefalonia in season include Easyjet, Ryanair, Norwegian, Thomas Cook, Thomson, TorAir, British Midland and Monarch from regional airports including Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Manchester.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Korianna House is beautiful. It's been finished to the highest standard, from the lovely furniture, the quality linens, pillows, beds, generous welcome pack to the fab sun loungers. Even my teenage sons were amazed how beautiful the house was and they were obviously happy with the Sky and Wifi.

The view over to the sea is stunning, Eating breakfast and drinking a sundowner with that view is what really makes a holiday special.

We ate at the two local Taverna's (walkable) and received great food and service.

We'll definitely return to Korianna House, but I think booking early will be advisable as word has got out how lovely it is!

Well done to Margot and with the help of the lovely Isabel for making this such a special place.

Luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa, with amazing views across to the sea. So peaceful, and relaxing, but with villages, tavernas and beaches only a short drive away.

The outdoor seating and pool are fantastic to spend lazy days in the sun, and the villa really is a home from home, with lots of luxury "finishing touches"

I would definitely recommend

A lovely Spring break

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely break at Korianna House at the beginning of April.

The house is gorgeous with every thing you need to make your stay very comfortable, and is spotlessley clean. It has beautiful views over the lush green fields all the way out to the sea, a beautiful outside terrace area and is very private and peaceful.

We spent some lovely days reading by the pool, listening to the sound of the birds and distant goat bells. We also hired a car and it was easy to drive to some of the beautiful beaches that are dotted around the island.

April in Kefalonia is slightly out of season so some of the restaurants and bars are closed. However it was a lovely peaceful time to visit the island, the beaches were empty and it was nice to see them in all their natural beauty. The roads were very quiet as few tourists were there in April. It was lovely to see all of the beautiful Spring flowers and the many colours of them dotted all over the island, very pretty!

There is a good welcome pack at the Villa with details of nearby beaches, restaurants and supermarkets etc.

I would not hesitate to stay at Korianna House again and we are really glad that we had the opportunity to book it.

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa Margot has created at Korianna House! The overall design of the house makes a wonderful holiday home and Margot has furnished it in great style with incredible attention to detail. On top of this the views of the coastline and evening sunsets are just fantastic. Combined with good beaches and excellent restaurants (particularly the local taverna) this made the perfect holiday. We have already booked our next visit!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Kefalonia a couple of times before, we knew what the island had to offer but Korianna House made it even more special. The views are amazing and the villa itself has everything you need (and more) for a luxurious and relaxing stay. Great location as a hub for exploring the island in your hire car and Margot provides you with all the info you need to make sure you don't miss out on anything. I would highly recommend having Viva, the private chef cook for you at the villa and Spaggia restaurant is definitely worth the trip. We'll definitely be back!

Stunning villa with views to match!

  • 5 of 5

We would strongly recommend Korianna house to anyone planning a trip to Kefalonia - it was the perfect place for us in every way, great location - just 15 mins from the airport and in easy reach of lots of lovely beaches, shops, and Argostoli - and the house itself is beautifully done, making our stay incredibly relaxed and enjoyable. We had our toddler with us and it was great for him too. The outside area is fantastic, loads of seating and the pool is wonderful. The villa itself is incredibly well equipped, every last attention to detail has been thought of.

There's plenty to do in the surrounding areas, although we chose to take it pretty easy most of the time. Avithos beach is lovely with a great little taverna right by the beach, and we also enjoyed Lassi which is very touristy but was ideal for us with our little one in tow, as it's very sandy with lots of beach bars and restaurants.

We can't wait to go back!

5 star luxury

  • 5 of 5

I had an absolutely excellent stay at Korianna House. The villa is pristine and every detail has been thought about from the comfy beds, wall prints, sun loungers and the massive hammock (always a fight to get the hamock!) with stunning views down to the sea. This isn't far off 5 star luxury. It was also really handy for beaches, quick walk to local restaurants and the airport (10 mins drive). Can't wait to go back.

Car: recommended

Kefalonia is a stunning island, with many beaches, pretty villages, vineyards and ancient ruins.

The villa is ideally located in the Livathos area, just 15 minutes from the airport. There are two restaurants and mini-markets a two minute drive or 15 minute walk with many more restaurants within a few minutes' drive.

Local beaches include Spartia and Avithos and the pretty sandy cove of Lourdas is just a 20 minute drive.

The castle, which is open for visitors to explore is ten minutes away. For something different try the local bowling alley, wine tasting at a nearby Gentilini vineyard or a massage at the health retreat.

Argostoli, the bustling capital, is a 20 minute drive. There you can enjoy a drink and a spot of people-watching on the popular square, nightclubs or even late night shopping. You can also catch a ferry across the bay to the Lixouri Penninsula.

Other Activities: Wine tasting, bowling, jeep safaris, sea kayaking
