Kefalonia’s south coast has many sandy beaches, some large, some small. Above the sandy beach of Agia Helis, spread out on an under-developed headland surrounding the Bay, there are just nine villas. Each villa has large grounds to ensure total privacy.
Villa Ippokampos (meaning Seahorse) is one of these nine villas. A private property in 2.5 acres with stunning views over Agia Helis Bay and across the sea to the tiny island of Dias and to Zakynthos. The beach is just a 10 minute walk away.
Ippokampos consists of two villas, joined at the hip by a swimming pool, plus two guest houses. A total of 9 bedrooms (and 9 bathrooms) accommodate up to 18 people and the rental price is the same regardless of occupancy. Two people can have the whole property and pay the same as eighteen people.
Just over a kilometre away, inland, is the small village of Svoronata, which has two tavernas and three minimarkets.
The property offers total privacy, elegant and comfortably furnished interiors and exteriors and proximity to some of the best sandy beaches on Kefalonia’s south coast.
