Welcome to our beautiful summer homes in Cephalonia! Located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by a lavish countryside, sandy beaches, and translucent turquoise waters, our homes are minutes away from the island’s main happening scene and airport.

Der Wohnraum

The Olive House is one of our three summer homes in Cephalonia.

Our homes are built in a 7,000 Sqm gated property, surrounded by numerous fields, many trees, and beautiful beaches. The closest beach is a 5-7 minute walk away, which is very convenient, especially for large groups, if some of the guests decide to stay back home and relax. All beaches around the property are sandy and have shallow translucent turquoise waters, some of which with caves you can swim into and rocks you can dive off from!

The homes are approximately a 10 minute drive from Argostoli, the island's main town, and a 5 minute drive from the island’s airport, which puts it very close to the island’s main happening scene and makes it very convenient for flying in and out from the island. Argostoli offers a complete range of amenities, including a comprehensive grocers market, a nice shopping district, a diverse cuisine assortment, and a fun nightlife scene. Moreover, a lot of nice tavernas and restaurants can be found scattered around the beachfront and highland villages of the island.

All three of our homes have been built with great care, using carefully selected materials and traditional construction techniques rarely found today. All materials and elements have been carefully chosen and combined to create a unique classic and contemporary homey atmosphere.

The property is comprised by spacious indoor and outdoor facilities built to optimize guest interaction while simultaneously enabling a high level of privacy. All three homes’ terraces form a natural extension of the structure with abundant shaded, lounge, and dinning areas ideal for relaxing, reading, sunbathing, stargazing, and entertaining. Each house has its own 32 square meter swimming pool, fireplace, outdoor kitchen & BBQ area, and fully equipped indoor kitchen. Moreover, the homes are equipped with high speed wireless broadband Internet and a rich entertainment system, which include TV/DVD players and Bose SoundTouch portable Wi-Fi music systems.

Interesting story:

Our homes and their color theme were inspired by the ancient Greek myth of the INOTROPES, three sisters who had the gift to turn water into grapes/wine and soil into wheat and olives. These three ‘food-elements’ are still valued highly within the Greek culture and are considered basic ingredients in both the Greek and Mediterranean cuisines.

In ancient Greek Mythology, the INTROPES were the three daughters of Anios, king of Delos, and granddaughters of god Dionysus, god of fertility. Their names were “Spermo”, which derives from the ancient Greek word ‘spiro’, which means the sow of seeds, “Ino”, which derives from the ancient Greek word ‘inos’, which means wine, and “Elais”, which derives from the ancient Greek word ‘Elea’, which means Olive.

According to the myth, the INOTROPES had the gift to turn water into wine and soil into wheat and olives. This is why Agamemnon, king of Mycenae, as soon as he heard of the myth, hunted to kidnap them so that they could produce food and wine for the Greek armies during the Trojan War.

A beautiful retreat set away from the hustle bustle of nearby Lassi. Fantastic outdoor area and pool, plus the host was very helpful

Firstly I want to start with WOW! Our holiday was everything and more than we'd wished for, from start to finish Carlos was excellent in helping us plan our trip, he recommended a very good car hire company and provided us with lots of useful information on places to visit and eat. We even visited one of the restaurants twice as it was fantastic. The house itself was beautiful, we especially loved the outdoor dining area and Danillo the housekeeper and his wife also made us feel very welcome, we had family visit us from Anthens and Danillo cooked on the BBQ for us. I cannot recommend this beautiful house enough.. We will be back to visit again soon. The swimming pool was fab and always cleaned each morning before we'd even ventured out! If you're lucky you might even get to meet Chupita the very friendly beagle that resides on the grounds!! If you choose this beautiful house it will not disappoint!

Cephalonia is rated as one of the greatest places in the world to live, and it is obvious to me why it ranks so highly.

We had wonderful time at Carlos place and pity we couldn't meet him in person. We were met at the airport by their family friend, very friendly and helpful lady. House has everything inside and more than needed :) Except washing machine. As family with kid we've missed it little bit, but Danylo and Marife helped us with that. They took great daily care of the house, were very discreet and respectful to our privacy. We almost never saw them but they were there when needed. House is located in actually very convenient place if you are travelling with kids (and even without) - its near the airport (so kids don't get tired travelling again by car after the flight) and close to the best sandy beaches (other side of the island beaches are rocky and not very enjoyable by kids). Airplanes never bothered us. Airport is really small and you get like 10 planes through the day. So its more exited than bothering :) We were with 2 yo and had a car (hired after recommendations of Carlos and didn't regret), so traveled all the island. Going to Fiskardo (most far point) took us 1,5h due to the closed road and its really not big deal comparing with traffic you get in big cities :) Plus scenery is breathtaking. We've visited Carlos recommended restaurants and again no regrets :) Only minuses - internet problem (not steady) (but as we used it for entertainment purposes wasn't real problem, but annoying :)) and not matching "holiday hours" with neighbours (like you want to sleep longer and their kids want to enjoy swimming pool earlier) :) If we are ever again in Kefalonia, we would choose same place. And will definitely recommend it to others.

We had the most wonderful stay at the villa. It really felt like we were staying in a boutique home which could be in an interior design magazine. What made the stay even more special was wonderful Danilo who discreetly gave us help and ensured our stay was as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. The pool area is the usp, spending days relaxing by the pool with outstanding scenery and facilities. We definitely felt this was a huge pet of the enjoyment of the holiday. Anyone considering this villa should also be encouraged by the wonderful hosting from Carlos and his mother Maria who were easy to deal with and helpful ensuring we would have the best possible time. Recommendations of local breaches and restaurants were most welcome and ensured we could make the most of our stay. Lastly kefalonia itself is the most perfect Greek getaway and all the Greeks we met were so kind and welcoming. We had a lovely holiday as a family. Thank you

We had a fabulous stay at the Olive Villa in Kefalonia. Carlos was a brilliant host - correspondence was quick and friendly with some great tips on places to visit. Villa was very nicely furnished and well designed. There was superb outside space to relax with very comfortable loungers and seating areas. The pool was a good size and the additional inflatables very handy. On-site, Danilo (who is caretaker to the 3 properties) deserves a special mention for his help - it was great to have our beds made everyday! Location was good to see the south part of Kefalonia - I was initially worried about being so close to the airport, but it wasn't a problem whilst there. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful home, I could not recommend it enough! The home came with everything we needed and more, Danilo was superb staying in the building next to us and was happy and enthusiastic to help out whenever he could. It was great to lay by the pool and to have the occasional bbq, the outside space was particularly beautiful, with use of the bikes available also. We didn't realise how much was available with the home, it was absolutely perfect. Only slight issue was attempting to organise taxi's to and from the property due to its tricky location to find, however Danilo was more than happy to help out where he could.

Hi there! My name is Carlos. I am half Greek half Spanish and so far have lived in three continents for my work and studies.
