About Sharon Webster
Hi, my name is Sharon Webster I am the Villa Owner and meet Peli my Greek dog!. A nurse by profession, having worked in the NHS for over 40 years I still live in England, but have a passion for the warm Mediterranean weather and atmosphere. My husband and I purchased the property (land) about 11 years ago and developed it as our second home. We just couldn't bare the thought of Aeolus sitting empty for weeks of wonderful weather when we could not be there to enjoy it, so decided to rent it to like minded people. There is no doubt it is a stunning location, and very Greek. Please see my website for further details.
Sharon Webster purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Sharon Webster chose Elation
The words to describe Aeolus and Stavlo are, stunning, spiritual, private and relaxing. Greece as it should be! The North of the island is by far the prettiest and with the most incredible views, although I know I am biased! The north is quieter than the busy tourist resorts of the south, although all of the island is easily accessible by car using Aeolus as a base. The situation of the villa is in very easy reach of some of the Island's most popular attractions namely, the Blue Caves, Shipwreck Bay, PELIGONI Club and the pretty little port of St Nikolus. Although a small conurbation in and around the port area it is not lacking in life, activities, bustling tavernas and shops, there is something for everyone.
What makes this Villa unique
Aeolus and Stavlo are 2 kilometers from the nearest shops and tavernas at the little local port. Beaches are in close proximity and the Peligoni water sports club is close by. The villa is located in the little village of Korithi, it is very private surrounded by it's own beautiful gardens, numerous terraces with spectacular views and large private swimming pool. The property is my summer home so has been comfortably furnished in the way I like and is therefore very different to a lot of the villas that have been designed with renting out in mind.

A beautiful house in mature gardens
This is the perfect house in a really lovely setting. Ideal for families who have children old enough to stay on their own in the separate old stable building so tjhat the parents can have peace and quiet in the main house. The pool is lovely, the gardens are exceptional and the island is easy to navigate. All in all, we thought it was perfect. Thanks Sharon. We hope to be back soon.

mama mia in idyllic setting
I stayed at this villa at the beginning of June with my family including my 15 year old daughter and 4 year old grandson. The pictures do not do the villa justice. it was breathtakingly lovely. The outside kitchen was our home for the next week and we filled the fridges with local fresh vegetables,fruit,food and cold drinks,beers and local wines. We grilled fish and meat over the enormous Bar B Q and lit candles and played board games (already at villa) around the huge wooden dining table,listening to crickets and watching lizards scurry up the walls. The morning welcomed us with clear blue skies and views from the balconies across the hills to the local fishing port whilst buzzards circled above us high in the mountains. Around the corner from the villa, we were greeted with stunning views of Cephalonia. The swimming pool was welcoming as were the wooden sun loungers surrounded by gardens bursting with geraniums,large palms and olive trees. Swimming in the evening was magical as the pool and walkways were lit up with outside lights. The main villa was home from home with everything catered for, large fridges,cooking equipment etc. In the main house stunning comfortable furnishing and local artwork were cosy late at night whilst watching DVDs. A huge wet room with very welcoming power shower after swimming or snorkelling crystal clear sea in fish filled coves. The main bedroom was straight out of Mamma Mia-painted Mediterranean blue and with white canopy over bed with huge French doors opening onto balcony overlooking the bay. More outside seating to relax on whilst reading gorgeous art and design books from downstairs in the villa. The additional little villa was magical and entered by going through a little side gate and wall built around a 500 year old olive tree and was very spacious for my daughter her partner and son,offering 4 beds,large wetroom and kitchen and sitting area complete with Bose sound system. We were speechless when we arrived . Underneath the house is a large laundry room with washing machine,inflatables for the pool ,and play equipment. The adopted cat which my daughter and grandson christened Esme and her kittens became very confident and enjoyed all the attention and feeds they gave her even coming to the back door to say hello and be fed. We cant wait to go back as it was luxurious,homely and magical. Next time we will laze in the hammock on yet another terrace surrounded by bouganvilia and olive trees. RECOMMENDED.
