Set in the rural town of Lakithra, the traditional terracotta Villa Froso is perfect for a family looking to visit the famous island of Kefalonia. Small market shops, churches, tavernas and bars are within walking distance of this villa and the main capital of Kefalonia, Argostoli, is only a ten minute drive away.
This three-storey villa contains the three bedrooms, two twin and one double, on the upper floors. All the bedrooms in this property are ensuite; the twin rooms contain shower rooms whilst the double bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. The main bathroom is situated on the ground floor. All of the bedrooms are comfortable and light with the beautiful sunshine beaming through the French doors that lead onto the balcony.
The ground floor contains an open plan lounge and diner, decorated with tiled floors, creamy yellow walls and wooden furniture with the traditional Greek charm included. The practical and bright kitchen contains all the essentials including a kettle, oven and toaster. The kitchen leads out onto the terrace through large French doors.
The lemon-tree gardens of this charming villa contain a freshwater pool with steps and barbecue facilities. The terrace area is shaded from the hot Greek sun and is perfect for dining outdoors using the table and chairs provided.
This lovely villa is in an ideal proximity to some of Kefalonia’s beautiful beaches, all of which have different quirks and characteristics that make them unique. Ammes beach is the closest to the villa, just a ten-minute drive away. This beach is near to the airport but the planes do not distract from the beauty of the turquoise Ionian waters. With easy access, a wide variety of food retailers, cheap sunbed rental and shallow waters, this beach is ideal for a relaxing day out. For those that like to snorkel in secret coves, the pebbled Paliolinos beach is only twelve minutes away. Lourdas beach, twenty minutes away, is very popular in Kefalonia but the mile long stretch of sand is never crowded. This beach is harder to access and a car is recommended for getting up the steep hill but the calm, clean waters and a great selection of bars and restaurants make up for that.
For larger parties that wish to stay together but also maintain privacy, Villa Froso neighbours with Villa Xenia – both Villas can be rented so more guests can enjoy the fun of a holiday away.
Kefalonia has some stunning sights that pictures do not do justice. The famous Myrtos beach, with its stunning Ionian waters and white sands is only a forty-six minute drive along scenic roads. Forty-four minutes from the property is the Melissani cave which is famous in Greek mythology as being the “Cave of the Nymphs”; the cave contains a secret lake full of breath-taking turquoise water – the water is so clear that the boats appear to be floating in the air.
For your next visit to the stunning island of Kefalonia, consider a peaceful stay at the charming and traditional Villa Froso.
The southern village of Lakithra is in a spectacular setting. The hamlet’s whitewashed buildings are nestled into green foothills, which look out towards the Ionian Sea. Its higher location means there’s always a nice breeze, even in the hot summer months.
The village centre is made up of timeworn churches, tavernas serving local food, and family-run businesses, including a traditional Greek bakery and a couple of mini markets. It’s still very much unspoiled and you can experience the authentic everyday village life.
Lakithra gives you easy access to some of Kefalonia’s best beaches. It’s just a 10-minute drive from Lassi, where you’ll find not one, but two ribbons of sand – Makris Yialos and Platis Yialos. They’re both fringed with restaurants, cafes, and bars offering happy hours.
Also, the Capital, Argostoli is only a 10-minute drive, and is home to archaeological museums, great shops and a central square spilling over with coffee shops and restaurants.
