Villa Anelina is a traditional stone-built house, located in ‘Chavdata’, a quiet village in Kefalonia Island-Greece. The villa was built according to the original Kefalonian architecture that prevailed in the 19th century and characterized all the living mansions of this era. It is fully equipped for a top-quality self-catering staying and is surrounded by spacious verandas and a well kept garden.
The villa was built in 2003 and mostly decorated with an authentic, antique-style furniture. It was first used as a holiday house from the owners (Rigas family), who gave all their heart into styling and looking after the villa. Later, it was qualified and licensed by the ‘HTO’, i.e the Hellenic Tourism Organization, complying with all standards, rules and comforts for a Holiday Rental. Live like a noble from another era, combining all comforts with a traditional, hospitable location. Enjoy your privacy, away from the fuss of the over-crowded touristic areas.
Built on a green hill, in the outskirts of Chavdata Village, the villa is overlooking ‘Lixouri’ community and the beautiful olive groves down in the valley. The clima-cool stone built together with the astonishing sea and valley views will offer you the freshness you need for your great Kefalonian experience.
Within short walking distance from your villa, you will find everything you need for your daily needs (mini-markets, bakery, local taverns). Beautiful beaches and sight-seeings are within a couple of min drive as well.
