Elpida

Kefalonia

On the crest of a small hillside above the village and harbour of Assos, Elpida is less than 100 metres from the sea and benefits from superb views over the picturesque bay and the imposing ramparts of a 16th century Venetian castle.

Located in one of the prettiest fishing villages in the Ionian and perfect for a family with older children. Magical!

This two bedroom property has been tastefully furnished with a mixture of modern and traditional furniture. The front entrance leads directly into a light and modern kitchen which is fully equipped with its own direct access to the swimming pool terrace. Next to the kitchen is a spacious family bathroom with shower and WC serving both bedrooms.

Steps lead from the kitchen level to the ground floor level where there is a twin bedroom with double doors that opens out onto a small terrace with steps leading up to the swimming pool terrace.

From the kitchen level, a half set of steps leads up to an open plan living area consisting of a spacious lounge and dining room with high wooden vaulted ceiling and stunning views from the lounge windows over Assos. From this level, stairs lead up to a galleried master double bedroom with wooden floors and ceiling that overlooks the lounge below.

The property is very well equipped with air-conditioning throughout, TV, DV, CD and i-pod docking station.

Villa Elpida has two outdoor dining areas - the first is next to the kitchen and is shaded by a covered pergola with panoramic views over the Bay of Assos.  The second is to the front of the villa and has built in barbecue with wonderful views over Assos and the surrounding countryside.  For a refreshing dip, the private swimming pool is only steps away with its spacious sunbathing terrace and loungers.

From the garden, steep steps lead 100 metres down to the seafront where there is a small swimming platform built into the surrounding rock.  From here, guests can swim to a wonderful, secluded beach accessible usually only by boat.

Villa Elpida is situated within walking distance to the delightful village of Assos (approx 300m).  Throughout the village, there is a strong Venetian influence with colourfully painted houses and a horse-shoe shaped harbour with brightly painted fishing boats tied up at the quay. The harbour is illuminated in the evening creating a magical ambiance and is a perfect setting to enjoy a romantic meal at one of the waterside tavernas or cafes while watching the sun set.

Villa Elpida is an ideal villa for families with older children due to the layout of the villa and its location within walking distance of the sea and one of the prettiest villages in the Ionian.

Reviews

Thomas C. arrived 18th Aug 2016

My feedback is very positive, as I very much appreciated the renewal
of the villas (last year I stayed in Tethys/Glaroni, so I could
appreciate the difference), that has rendered them much more
comfortable (although they were already such, now they are much more).
Also the girl who is in charge of the cleaning was, as last year,
always very nice and available. I take the opportunity to ask you to
say her goodbye on behalf of us, as we did not have the chance to see her the morning we left.

Thank you again and (maybe) see you next year.

Best rgards
Thomas

 

Claire R. arrived 21th May 2015

We had a great stay and the villa was of a very high quality, thank you.
I wanted to find out who to tell about Adrianna the house keeper, as she is so hardworking and helpful this should be noted.
We went donkey trekking over in Sami, it was a real highlight for anyone who loves animals and wants to see a bit more of the island than the beaches.
The staff at PGV have also been really helpful and friendly on the email. I would recommend the company to others and use you again ourselves.

 

Dylan J. arrived 11th Sept 2014

We had a wonderful holiday and will probably go back – it reminded us of Greece 30-40 years ago – unspoilt and uncommercialised.

Regards

 

Amber J. arrived 31th July 2014

We have just had the most wonderful week ever in Villa Elpidea in Assos.
I wanted firstly to thank you for your most generous and lovely welcome food you arranged for us as we got there so late.
It was so fantastic to arrive to that generous fridge with great provisions for us.
We are so grateful and this time and in the past years we have always had a great experience of your company and the villas we have visited with you.

All v best
Amber J.

Susie L.- K. arrived 22th May 2014

We had an absolutely brilliant holiday thank you. The service and villa were superb, better than we'd expected. Katerina (I think that was the housekeepers name?) was lovely and it was an unexpected perk to have her pop in every day to make the beds.

Overall, the villa was in great condition, very well kitted out and we just loved it.

Thanks again, hope to book with you again sometime.

Thanks and regards,
