DESCRIPTION

Stunning villa with a panorama of the magical southern Ionian Islands

3 BEDROOM VILLA WITH PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL

- Sleeps 2 - 6
- Private Swimming Pool
- Car Hire
- A/C in bedrooms only

On a fine summer's morning as the first yachts ease their way off their moorings in the tiny port of Fiskardo the early risers are ordering their first coffee of the day along the waterfront. It is hard to believe that life was completely different 60 years ago. The occupying Italian army, without logistical support, decimated the islanders' food supplies. Farming communities such as Katsarata, on the hillside above Fiskardo, would have faced starvation had they not managed to hide their wheat harvest in caves and old cisterns in the surrounding woods. Now, in more peaceful times, traditional farming is no longer viable and these same fields provide the perfect setting for houses such as the Villa Astra.
Built into the hillside on one level and set in its own walled gardens, Villa Astra has been designed so that every room not only enjoys a daytime view that stretches from the lighthouse to the south west of Lefkada, to the northern half of Ithaka, but also opens directly onto the front terrace and swimming pool. At nightfall, the house is transformed; the cooler evening air clears away the haze of the daytime heat. With no streetlights, the stars seem almost within touching distance.
Approached from a quiet lane, the house is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and terracing. The villa is designed to give the feeling of space with a large open plan living area. Set partly in an arched alcove is a well-equipped kitchen. A modern version of a traditional Kefalonian open hearth is the centerpiece of the spacious sitting room. All three bedrooms lead out to terraces surrounding the villa. Two of the bedrooms have their own en suite shower room with the third using the main separate bathroom.
The village of Manganos, with it's colourful greengrocer's shop and taverna, is a five minute drive away. Fiskardo and local beaches are only five minutes further, whilst the whole of the Erissos peninsula including the spectacular west coast is within easy reach by car. Villa Astra and Villa Kalograta share one of the best panoramas in northern Kefalonia.
Villa Astra is without doubt one of the finest in the area, truly a house of stars!
