Cephalonia  -  3 Bedrooms / 3 Bathrooms / Sleeps 8

Villa Cara is a rather special hideaway close to the sea on the south coast of sandy beaches.

Surrounded by hillsides of olive groves the villa looks out over a spectacular, natural landscape of pine and cypress to the sea and in the distance, the island of Zakynthos (Zante). In the other direction the villa looks up to the foothills of Mount Aenos.

Sunsets are theatrical.

The villa is set within private grounds of over an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens (grass lawns for children). No near neighbours intrude and there is total privacy and tranquillity.

In the gardens you will find orange, lemon, lime, mandarin, pear, apricot, cherry and plum trees. Colour throughout the season is provided by bougainvillea, bottle brush, hibiscus, geranium, agapanthus, lemongrass and jasmine.

The villa has two floors of sumptuously comfortable accommodation – each one with sitting room and kitchen.

The villa’s location, just a 5 minute drive from the village of Spartia, is countrified and secluded.

Private swimming pool 15 x 4 metres & depth 1.4 metres

Maid service and linen change once weekly (towels changed twice weekly)
