Dias Retreat

Kefalonia

Cool, contemporary styling, this modern two bedroom villa with private pool and garden is within walking distance to a beach and very easy driving distance to a traditional village. Great for families.

This villa is ideal for design-conscious guests who want their own private pool, easy proximity to a beach and a few traditional tavernas up the road to enjoy local produce with a few glasses of the excellent local wine.

From the traditional village of Kleismata, a quiet country lane leads down towards the sea. 180m before the beach, three age-old olive trees mark the entrance to Dias Retreat. The villa is situated in a large, private estate looking out over the uninhabited island of Dias.

The villa has been recently completed in the traditional Italianate style of the island. The dusky terracotta exterior blends perfectly with the minimalist style interiors. The entire ground floor is a spacious and light open plan space with living area, dining area and very smart kitchen – the white, modern furnishings throughout are comfortable and ultra-stylish. Large glass doors lead out to the pool terrace and outdoor dining area overlooking the pool and garden with the island of Dias shimmering in the distance.

From the open plan living area, stairs lead to the two bedrooms on the upper level – a master bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, and a bedroom with two single beds with en-suite bathroom with shower. Both bathrooms feature ochre-coloured marble and both bedrooms have views over the sea.

The villa has air-conditioning throughout, TV, DVD, i-pod docking station and WIFI.

Dias Retreat is surrounded by a large garden with lawns and outdoor dining terrace which has a dining table for six and barbecue facilities under the shade of a pergola. To the front of the terrace is a large private swimming pool (40sqm) with plenty of teak loungers for sunbathing around the pool.

The villa is walking distance to a very pretty, quiet local beach which is usually sandy (approx 5 mins walk). For those wanting more facilities, the long sandy beach at Avithos with its sun loungers, tavernas and cafes is about a 5 min drive away. The villa is also close driving distance (approx 1km) to the traditional village of Kleismata which has various tavernas and a small supermarket. The main town of the island, Argostoli, is about 10 mins by car - it has a great variety of traditional tavernas, some quite sophisticated restaurants, bars, cafes around the marina, a wonderful daily fruit and vegetable market, plenty of shops and fresh fish sold off the caique boats in the quay.

Perfect for families with children since the property has a large garden with lawns.

We had a fantastic time and loved the Villa. It was very relaxing and
just what we were hoping for.
The Villa felt very private, had a lovely pool and
garden and the beach at the end of the road was perfect for us and we visited many times.

Kind regards
David

We had a lovely time at Dias Rock. The villa was perfect for the 4 of us. The owners were lovely and sorted out a couple of minor things straight away. The maid was really good and kept the villa spotless.

We would definitely look at booking again if we came back to Kephalonia.

Kind regards
Toby and Emma K.
