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.
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.

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.
