Kefalonia boasts few holiday rental properties
which can compare with Jasmine Villa's superb combination of tasteful
luxury, privacy and tranquility and breathtaking views — all
within easy reach of several glorious beaches, Argostoli, and the
island's other numerous attractions.
Dominating the hill above Dorizata village, Jasmine Villa is faithful
to traditional Ionian architecture, with the tasteful use of local
stone, marble and granite — both inside and out — complementing
the imposing venetian lines of the building.
|Location, location, location
||Well outside of the vilage,at the very
end of the road, Jasmine Villa could not be better placed. The views
are truly panoramic (see the banner above) from the majestic mount
Ainos to the east across the Ionian to Zakynthos in the south. This
is no villa complex. The occasional herd of goats and their herdsmen
are all that may intrude on your idyll as you relax by the pool.
||Designed as a home, Jasmine
Villa is spacious in every respect. From the huge open-plan lounge,
the large well-appointed kitchen to the huge balcony, king-sized bathroom
and vast poolside space, no compromise has been made to economies
of building costs. And every comfort and convenience is provided.
Air conditioning in all bedrooms and living areas... jacuzzi style
bath... wifi, DVD, Apple TV... american-style fridge with ice-maker...
the list goes on.
||Outside, the theme continues. The large
covered verandah serves as the dining room in the long Greek summer,
and imposing stone steps lead down to the large custom-designed pool,
with the poolside paved in pilion stone, flanked by lawn to one side
and the large shaded pergola and barbecue to the other. There is even
an outside WC for those lazy days in the sun.
||Whilst you could happily
while away your days without looking farther afield, the local beaches
are stunning. Just a few minutes away by car (or about half an hour
on foot for the intrepid) lies Ayios Thomas' beaches and their two
tavernas and bars. And just a little further afield are Trapezaki,
Pessada and Spartia, each with their own special charm.
