.The house is situated a few meters from the sea. It has a big garden and a lovely outside area with an 8 seater table, where you can have your meals. There is also an outdoor shower, which you can make use of after the beach. The house is very minimalist but has everything you need. The kitchen is huge, so you can sit around chatting, whilst preparing meals. The view is breathtaking, you will see ! Cephalonia is the island where CAPTAIN CORRELI'S MANDOLIN was filmed.

Interaction with guests
I am available at all times. I live in the flat upstairs, so should you need advice on places to visit, great restaurants or anything at all, I am here to help. If you would like me to stock your fridge and pantry before you arrive, just let me know. I do provide a few basics for your arrival, such as, coffee, tea, sugar, milk, waters, a snack, toilet paper, soap,. etc. On arrival, I can fetch you from the ferry and take you to the house, do a hand over of the keys and show you around the house.

A few steps to a lovely morning swim, a five minute walk to the village for breakfast or entertainment, an enjoyable walk to the next well known sandy beach, a quick ferry drive to the capital for a serious shop. What more could you want...? Clean spacious rooms with kitchen, barbeque, views and great host. What a great holiday -...

You couldn't choose a better place to unwind. The ocean is literally on your doorstep and the accommodation light, bright and very comfortable with freshly laundered linen and towels. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for that super get away.

The location is amazing and the island is so beautiful! Alex is so friendly and was so helpful in guiding us to all the hidden gems in the Island. The Blue Door is fantastic

About the neighbourhood
The house is literally on the sea front. There is a beach right in front of the house, which is perfect for early morning and late night swims. The town is a 7 minute walk, so it's very convenient if you don't want to drive all the time. There is a supermarket about 3 minutes from the house. In town, around the town square, there are many lovely coffee shops and restaurants to choose from - I can tell you where to go. Lepeda beach is about 2 kms away and it's a stunning walk, I do that walk every day for exercise. I highly suggest renting a car, so you can get to see all the stunning beaches that this island has to offer.
Getting around
I highly suggest hiring a car. There are magnificent villages and beaches that one has to visit when in Cephalonia. I can assist with car hire, as I know a few companies that hire out cars at good rates. There are some beaches where you can have sunset dinners - I highly recommend this. There are no buses, only taxis.

How to get there
Ferry: Lixouri: 1.0 km
If you are flying to the island, you will arrive at Argostoli Airport. From there, you take a taxi to the Port and hop on the ferry to Lixouri, a 25 minute trip. I will fetch you and take you to the house, which is about a 3 minute drive from the Port.
