Villa Dias is located on the edge of the pretty village of Kaligata in the exclusive Livathos Region. It benefits from a large elevated garden site complete with shady olive and fruit trees and enjoys breathtaking views down to the Ionian Sea. Villa Dias has its own private infinity swimming pool (9m xx 5m) and is finished and furnished to the highest standard. It comprises two twin bedrooms and one double, all with luxury ensuite wetroom style bathrooms, and a large open plan living area with a modern fully equipped kitchen.

Covered terraces provide shaded areas from which to enjoy the beautifullylandscaped gardens and stunning view. We have designed Villa Dias to ensure that this beautiful uninterrupted view can be enjoyed from all bedrooms and the main living areas.

WI-FI internet access available.

Getting to Kefalonia: We can advise guests of which airlines fly to Kefalonia, and suggest websites to try.

At present, out of season access is via Athens, with an internal flight (or ferry journey) to Kefalonia.

About Kefalonia: Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands, unspoilt, very friendly, with a beautifully varied landscape.

The island's beaches offer something for everyone-sandy or pebbley, safe or wild, deserted coves or bustling, all with beautiful, clean azure seas. The beaches in the South of the island are generally sandy, and many are safe for swimming and provide excellent snorkelling.

If you need a bit more from your holiday than relaxing by the pool or beach then there are many places well worth visiting; villages such as Assos and the beautiful harbour of Fiscardo, virtually undamaged by the earthquake of 1953, the beautiful church of Agios Gerasimos, the Drogarti caves and Melissani Lake or a day trip to Ithaca.The dramatic Mount Ainos,1628m, and its surrounding National Park provides excellent walking opportunities, particularly in the spring and autumn, and is home to the island's native wild horses, eagles and osprey. The famous Robola vineyards are found in the nearby Omala Valley

Food and drink: Self catering on Kefalonia is a pleasure - the range and quality of fresh produce on the island is excellent. Local mini markets will provide essentials eg bread, fresh milk etc. For a bigger range Argostoli has daily fruit and veg markets with harbour front fish and meat also of a very high standard. In the main town there are a selection of food stores with a wider range of groceries including, if required, staples such as butter, baked beans and cheddar cheese! On each return to the island we enjoy revisiting favourite restaurants but can always discover a new gem. Numerous tavernas around the island offer simple grilled fresh fish and meat, pasta, salads and local dishes. In addition, particularly in Argostoli, there are more sophisticated restaurants to enjoy. Those with a passion for desserts will find many temptations in the island's patisseries.

For wine lovers there are several wineries on the island to visit and sample the local Robola grape.

About Angela and Ian McClintock

The McClintock family - We live in Wylam in Northumberland - Ian is from Northern Ireland, where this photo is taken, and Angela is from Edinburgh. We have two teenage boys, Andrew and Charlie - we have enjoyed many holidays at our home away from home on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. We hope our guests love it as much as we do!

Angela and Ian McClintock purchased this Villa in 2005

Why Angela and Ian McClintock chose Livathou

The VIEW - we had visited many building plots before we found this one, after which there was no more debate.............apart from all the decisions about tiles!!

What makes this Villa unique

The VIEW! Early morning swim in the infinity pool with the smell of lavender blossom - before the kids are up! Watching with sunset with a G & T......... Reading your book under the shade of an olive tree.......

                                                                      John W.

                                                                      This lovely villa is airy and spacious and very well furnished and equipped. Sited in a good sized hill-side plot it has lovely views particularly from the upstairs balcony. The pool is a very good size for this type of property and like everything else very well maintained. The local management team could not have been more helpful and friendly.

                                                                      This was our first visit to Kefalonia for our daughters wedding so with all the associated activities and visitors we didn't get chance to see much of what is clearly a lovely island.

                                                                      We will certainly come back and stay at Villa Dias again. It is one of those places that 'just feels right' and I cannot see how anyone would not have a very special holiday staying there.
