Maklithari House is a truly wonderful addition to our portfolio of properties here at Holiday Villas Kefalonia, and we are delighted to showcase this amazing property for the first time in the vacation rental market, for the summer of 2020.
With its’ privileged location, set in the picturesque village of Makriotika and on the outskirts of the delightful harbour town of Agia Efimia, Maklithari House is also only a short breath away from the World famous, Myrtos Beach. Assos & Fiscardo, 2 of the most naturally beautiful locations on the whole of Kefalonia Island are easily accessible, as are the popular tourist sites of Antisamos, Melissani Lake & Drogorati Caves. The airport and bustling main capital, Argostoli, are also a short drive away, thanks to the recently built new connection road.
Maklithari House is a brand new, immaculately presented property, fully air conditioned, built to a very high standard and with a host of modern design touches apparent throughout. This impressive residence is set over 3 incredible floors and would be the ideal vacation home for 3 couples or 2 small families, as they can enjoy their own privacy & independence, whilst at the same time enjoying the wonderful shared spaces the house has to offer. The furnishings and finishes throughout all the property are of the highest standard and with a modern-minimalistic edge, will provide our guests the feeling of total comfort with a certain design chic combined. Large patio doors and windows allow natural light to flood into the house, giving a real feel of openness throughout.
The top floor consists of a large open plan independent studio, with a stunning Italian designed kitchen area, a lounge/dining space and a double bed. There is a separate en suite and ample storage/wardrobe space to serve the guests. The middle floor houses a 1 bedroom apartment complete with a 2nd kitchen area and large lounge/dining space which also houses a sofa bed suitable for our younger guests. The lounge area is served by its own WC/shower area. There is a double bedroom, a 2nd separate en suite and again an array of storage solutions. The lower floor houses another self-contained studio complete with kitchen, lounge/dining area, en-suite and 2 single beds. A second sofa bed suitable for a child is also available on this floor. The top & middle floors are connected via an internal feature staircase, but can also be totally independent of each other if required via an internal lockable doorway. The lower floor is only accessible through the middle floor, so would be ideal for a small family. The views afforded from the vast balconies and verandas surrounding Maklithari House are truly breathtaking from every angle, are unobstructed and spread all the way across the valley of Pylaros and down to the beautiful Azure views of the Ionian Sea.
Externally, this superb house benefits from an incredible garden, with many social areas mingling in with the natural flora & fauna, creating a truly peaceful retreat, which compliments the property perfectly. The garden houses a feature covered pavilion area, perfect for morning breakfasts or those intimate family evenings and large enough to seat all guests in comfort, allowing the feeling of being in a ‘secret garden’, due to the array of flowers and trees in abundance throughout. Winding pathways will take you on a journey through these magical outside spaces. There is also an external shower for those wonderfully warm Kefalonian summers. The house also benefits from off-road parking for 2 cars.
A traditional Kefalonian taverna is situated adjacent to the house and an array of up-market restaurants, tavernas, cocktail bars & shops are located in Agia Efimia, a short distance away.
The perfect location, coupled with the facilities available to its guests, will ensure Maklithari House is the ideal base to explore all the very best that the island of Kefalonia has to offer its discerning visitors, and we are absolutely sure you will wish to return time and time again to sample the delights of this unique residence.
