18nth of June
Katerina, George and the importance of living in harmony with Nature…

As soon as we parked the car at the yard of the villa, Katerina and George, the owners, welcomed us politely.
We met two very pleasant young people who have perfectly realized the importance of living in harmony and peace with Nature, while expressing feelings of love and respect for it.  
 


After having sat at the veranda, which was leading to the beautiful sea water swimming pool (also accessible to people with special needs), George and Katerina were willing to tell us how categorically their lives changed, when tired of the city lifestyle, took the decision to return to Kefalonia, their place of origin.
They rediscovered the beauty and the fascination of living in harmony with Nature.
Their childhood memories were enlivened in this beautiful land, where they learnt again to enjoy the sunny days and the serene evenings, to discover the seasons as nature intended, to realize that rain is compassionate to the ground and makes it fertile when it falls and the wind is a loving caress, which brings with it forgotten and nostalgic aromas and fragrances, healing for soul and mind.
 


Alternative Eco tourism and Journeys Down Memory Lane…

Among all those, was born the idea to create a place where other people would be able to live, remember, learn about nature and its values, be illuminated with the ideas of ecology and also to participate and rediscover activities forgotten in modern day society.



In 2009 the idea came to life, a farm and a villa in perfect harmony with nature, which can offer alternative forms of vacation, relaxation and fun learning.


Luxury and Comfort amid Natural Splendor

The villa is characterized by its minimalistic modern design in the interior, where at the same time effort was given to accomplish the outmost comfort for the guests.
All buildings were constructed using the principles of bio-climatic architecture.
From the foundations to the interior decoration all materials used are friendly to the environment.
The farm is totally autonomous regarding electricity.
The electric supply derives from photovoltaic panels and a wind generator.
All organic garbage is recycled using compost where non organic materials are gathered and transferred for recycling.  

The villa can host up to 10 persons and has a basement of 200sq.mt which is used as a cellar, garage and storage.

The ground floor (270sq.mt) houses a luxurious and spacious kitchen, a large and relaxing modern living room
 


as well as 4 bedrooms with their bathrooms.
All rooms are decorated in minimalistic modern design taking great care so they will also offer luxury and comfortableness to their residents.
One of the rooms and its bathroom is accordingly designed to offer comfort and access to people with special needs

The first floor houses the master bedroom and its bathroom, offering ample space. Great balconies occupy the rest of the space with breathtaking 360 degree views of the hills and the sea.
 


There is also a tree house, built as a tribute to the childhood’s innocence and dreams, a playground and a traditional wood burning oven and barbeque.
 


For the entertainment of the guests there are activities like horse riding (with beautiful appaloosa horses too) and mountain biking.
The guests can also sail to historical locations and visit scenery of great beauty.
For those who love more extreme sports there are activities such as parapente and paragliding.
 


Katerina and George told us that they always offer immaculate  services to their guests, but with discretion, since they always respect the precious time of their holidays and their privacy too.  
 

Katerina’s great loves

We walked on the roads with the fruit trees, the herbs and the flowers, around the villa, where the atmosphere was filled with fragrances and aromas;
we saw hens, ducks, a gracious iguana and also Katerina’s great loves, her appaloosa horses.
We caressed them and shared her loving feelings for them.
Then we spoke about everything that concerns this unique and exquisite villa, with this nice couple, who have rediscovered the true essence of life.
Katerina and George guided us with kindness and pleasure to the interior of the villa and to the truly magnificent balconies and verandas too. 
 


Late in the afternoon and just before sunset, we said goodbye to those two nice and exceptional young people and took with us to treasure the memory of this so elegant and at the same time so harmonized with the nature villa, which had fascinated us by all means!
