Kefalonia Island


Situated in a beautiful and peaceful area of Kefalonia. It is a modern farm house surrounded by a 40 acre olive grove with beautiful trees and flowers.

In our farm one can find rabbits, goats, sheep, hens, hedgehogs, cats and our friendly dog, Foivos, always willing to welcome our guests. In the morning we wake up to the sounds of birds.

Behind the house stretches the highest mountain of the island, Mount-Ainos, well known for its unique fir-trees.

All balconies overlook the vastness of the Ionian Sea and the island of Zante. During the sunset one can experience the grandeur of nature, gazing at the fishing boats.
