Stay at the delightful Dafni and explore Kefalonia’s stunning northern region

We’re delighted to announce a new villa to our Kefalonia programme – the simply stunning Dafni. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, Dafni can sleep four guests in comfort. This characterful, newly built villa is situated in the tranquil hamlet of Defaranata, and enjoys simply divine views of the beautiful Bay of Assos below.

This exceptionally pretty northern part of Kefalonia is ideal for exploring the island’s unique landscape on bike or foot and swimming in the translucent water that laps many of the beautiful coves sprinkled along the shoreline.

Just 3.6km from Dafni is the village of Vassilikades, home to a great choice of amenities. The pretty little beach of Assos is just a ten-minute drive from the villa, meaning guests don’t have to travel far to experience spending a memorable day on one of Kefalonia legendarily beautiful beaches.

Dafni was built to blend in with its stunning landscape, with natural stone, wood and ceramics, and striking vaulted beamed ceilings, creating a traditional look. A well-equipped modern farmhouse kitchen will provide the chef of the family a convenient space to rustle up dishes made with locally bought produce.

Dafni’s exterior is equally inviting, where terrace space that extends over several levels provides the perfect place for leisurely lunches, memorable dinners, a spot of sunbathing, a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

The villa’s private swimming pool that overlooks the scenic splendour Kefalonia is internationally renowned for, will be another focal point of parties staying at this fabulous contemporary accommodation.

While dragging yourselves away from this comfortable modern villa might be difficult, you won’t be disappointed, as the world-famous sandy horseshoe-shaped beach of Mytos is just a 15-minute drive from the villa and the pretty harbour of Fiscardo is just 25-minutes from Dafni.
