Myrtos Beach, on Kefalonia’s north-west coast, has bright turquoise waters, shimmering sand and fine shingle and a backdrop of high cliffs – all creating a stunning theatrical effect as seen in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
Villa Myrtos is one of a few private houses in the small hamlet of Divarata, which lies at the top of the cliffs – a 10 minute drive to Myrtos beach. The hamlet possesses some beautiful stone, Venetian houses.
The villa enjoys a peaceful and private location with views across the surrounding valleys and mountains.
Spacious interiors open out to individual balconies and terraces surrounding the swimming pool. Created by the owner’s wife, an artist, the established gardens contain pastel pink bougainvillaea, turquoise plumbago, creamy pink oleander, orange contessa sara and assorted roses.
Private swimming pool 9 x 5 metres & depth 0.90 – 1.9 metres

"Owner could not have been kinder or more welcoming, lovely family villa with excellent outdoor / pool areas.
A very short stroll takes you to the village tavernas, the very well stocked local shop and the gem of a find Café Nouvo – great cocktails.
With the beautiful Myrtos beach at 4km, the port of Agia Efimia , Assos and Fiskardo close by it was the perfect central location for exploring this beautiful island."

"Just wanted to thank you for helping us organise our summer holiday to Kefalonia. We had a really lovely week. The villa was great and was made extra special by the kindness of the owners. We loved Kefalonia and enjoyed the location of the villa being so close to beautiful Myrtos beach."
