It really is an absolute delight to include this charming, romantic retreat in our Kefalonia portfolio. Recently built to a notably high standard and imaginatively designed both inside and out, every aspect of this well-appointed, enviably located hideaway encourages effortless relaxation. A wonderful choice for anyone seeking to rest, refresh and ‘recharge’ (honeymooners, in particular, should look no further!) summer escapes to the sunshine do not come more appealing than at Marina.
There is an impressive amount of space to enjoy; starting outside, surrounded by lawn and shady mature trees, not one but two, private pools vie for attention.
Artistically landscaped around an ancient olive tree, the principal pool has wide Roman steps across the width of one end with a curtained gazebo shading a comfortable seating/dining terrace at the other.
Long, shallow and instantly eye-catching, pool number two has a pair of solid, low-level sunbeds built into one side and extending directly into the water. Quirky... and, of course, cooling!
Other external highlights include sea views from the terraces across to neighbouring Zante (Zakynthos) and even a small private chapel nestling in the shade of two, 100 year old eucalyptus trees.
Equally welcoming, the air-conditioned, open-plan interior is furnished with care and decorated in soft, soothing pastel shades. Attractive, slate-grey coloured flooring, substantive roof beams, and an expansive mezzanine/bedroom with free-standing bathtub keep things easy on the eye and further evidence the owner’s deft, creative touch.
Just 2km away, the sleepy village of Spartia is home to a couple of local tavernas, a bakery and a minimarket for everyday essentials. A simple taverna also sits alongside South-facing Spartia Beach (2.5km) which is backed by limestone cliffs and fringed by good walking country – particularly towards the ruins of St George Castle. With good shopping, daily markets of seafood, meat and fresh local produce plus a choice of waterside restaurants, the interesting island capital, Argostoli, is only 12km.
