Located only kilometers off the west coast of Greece, the islands are known for their sandy beaches, rugged limestone cliffs, lush forests and the surrounding, clear waters of the Ioanian Sea.
The Migliaressis Estate is a 32-acre property on the Greek Island of Cephalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands. Adjacent to the estate property sits a large Cephalonian style manor house, Villa Filalexia. Although ideal for 6-7 adults, the villa is comfortable for up to 8 guests. Surrounded by an ancient olive grove and next door to the Estate’s restored 19th century olive mill, the villa is located within the Greek plains; sitting just 11.3 km away from the island airport, 5 km from the nearest village and 900 m. from the sea. Guests will thoroughly enjoy this two-floor manor, which offers many amenities. A stylish summer retreat, the house was built in the 18th century, and has been lovingly renovated and restored to maintain its cultural heritage and charm. The terracotta roof gives the villa a village appearance, but inside the tile floors and high ceilings convince guests they are in a comfortably modern house.
On the ground floor, guests can enjoy a living and dining area that opens up to a full kitchen. The old-fashioned cabinetry gives this kitchen, full of modern appliances, a very traditional appearance. The ground floor also houses a twin bedroom with en-suite shower bathroom off the terrace and a double bedroom with an adjacent shower bathroom. On the upper level, sea views can be enjoyed from the double bedroom, and the twin bedroom has a small balcony where guests can relish views of the surrounding olive groves. The two bedrooms on the upper floor share a shower bathroom. Staff quarters are located on the basement level, along with laundry facilities.
The welcoming outdoor, shaded dining area on the terrace is an excellent place to enjoy a home cooked meal. At the end of the terrace, there is a 65m² traditional Tuscan swimming pool with Roman style steps and a shallow end, which can be illuminated at night for guests interested in taking an evening swim. The Mediterranean landscaped backyard is also adorned with lounge chairs and sun umbrellas for relaxing.
This entirely private retreat sits just meters from Trapezaki beach and 2,5kms away from one of the best and most secluded beaches of the island, Lithero /Kanali. Children over the age of eight are welcome and younger guests may be accepted if arranged in advance. Cephalona, or Kephalonia, offers charming monasteries, intriguing caves, fir-tree forests and picturesque villages as well as the sparkling Ionian Sea.
