Finished in plaster of a sugary rose hue the color of the Kefalonian coated almond sweets, after which this Villa is named, and framed by hand cut stone corners, this imposing square Villa holds prime position at the far end of a lane. From this vantage point, the views of green forested hillsides descending into the bluest of sea where white cliffs highlight the north coast of the Luxouri Peninsular, fall nothing short of jaw dropping.
Within its walls, Villa Mandola is ideal for those who have a preference for large spaces, those who like to stretch out and feel unrestricted. Throughout it is bright, light and with an expanse of well proportioned living space, more than elbowroom for twice the number of people for which there are be.
The kitchen occupies the ‘short’ end of an L shaped open plan living room, an island unit separating it from the dining and sitting areas. This well organized work space is suitably equipped for holiday catering with a large fridge freezer, ceramic hob and electric oven, microwave and dishwasher. When dining in, the purpose built barbecue is close by at the front of the Villa.
From the classically furnished living and dining areas French doors open to the stone paved terrace which surrounds the 8m x 4m pool and which in its turn is surrounded by the wonderland scenery. The terrace is furnished for outside living with sunbeds, tables and chairs and a rattan sofa and easy chairs.
There is a guest WC on the ground floor with a washing machine.
Atop the marble staircase, each of the three bedrooms at first floor level have vaulted wood ceilings and a balcony to step out onto in the morning for those who need reassurance that those sea views weren’t just a passing dream. They also happen to have a pretty spectacular sunset view later in the day.
The very spacious double bedroom and both twin bedrooms each has an ensuite shower room with walk in shower with rain forest shower head, wash basin and WC
Located at the edge of the tiny village of Tzamarelata in northern Kefalonia, the picturesque harbour of Fiscardo is approx 10 minutes drive away. Closer, at 1.5km, is the village of Magganos, with two excellent mini markets and tavernas.
On the coast below the Villa, via a winding route, the tiny beach of Alikies is a delightful spot for sea bathing and although the tables at the taverna on the rocks just above the beach are often fully booked for 'the best' sunset views, this won’t worry the guests at Villa Mandola who have their own private, poolside sunset view table.
