The house is of unique design and has glorious, uninterrupted views over the Ionian sea.
The sitting room, open-plan diningroom and kitchen, together with cloakroom and utility room are all on the top floor and have a spectacular outlook.
On the floor below are three light, airy and spacious bedrooms all overlooking the sea, and each with balconies and integral awnings giving protection from the sun. Two bedrooms have king-size beds and the third has two twin beds. The first king-size bedroom has it's own ensuite (full size bath, overhead shower, toilet and basin). The second king-size bedroom has an ensuite shower-room which can be shared with the twin bedroom. Each bedroom has fitted wardrobes, dressing table, occasional chairs and comfortable beds.
The large mosaic swimming pool fills the front sun-terrace and there are shady areas in the garden particularly under the vine-covered pergola which is equipped with tables and chairs for eating and barbecueing.
The villa itself is fully equipped for a maximum of six guests & offers high quality, tasteful accommodation with full air-conditioning and Internet connection. Meals can be enjoyed on the large top-floor oval balcony or below in the garden by the pool. From the house and garden guests can see miles of the Livathos coastline, the whole length of Lourdas Bay and the island of Zakinthos. Kefalonia has so much to offer. Visitors can chose to spend the day by the pool, laze on one of the local beaches or explore the island's sights before watching the spectacular Ionian sunset from the balconies. The Garden House is idyllically situated in an elevated position along a quiet lane. It is above the main Lourdas Beach and lies on the lower slopes of Mt Ainos - a protected National Park. Wild orchids flower in the spring, in the autumn crocuses and cyclamen bloom. Wild horses still roam the mountain and from the balconies guests may even see eagles, owls and bats!
Please note that the guests' reviews listed on the HomeAway / Owners Direct website relate to when we ran The Garden House as a small guesthouse catering for B&B visitors. After many happy years we have retired and the villa is now let to guests wishing to enjoy a relaxed, self-catering holiday in our beautiful Kefalonian home. We now ask that guests use the existing visitor reviews purely as a guide to give a sense of what The Garden House, the delightful village of Lourdata, Lourdas Bay and the island of Kefalonia itself, have to offer by way of a wonderful holiday location.
