Auntie’s Cottage is a welcoming homely retreat located within the picturesque mountain village of Makriotika, on the slopes of the mountain ‘Agia Dynati’, offering a quiet stay in a lovely rural setting - away from it all but easy to reach places of interest - and the opportunity for you to experience the serene greek rural life. Because of its location the cottage overlooks the valley of Pylaros and the garden terrace boasts stunning views across the beautiful valley and the sea beyond. It is ideally based for those who love nature and hiking as they will discover beautiful walking trails throughout the surrounding small villages and mountains in the valley. The beautifully well kept outside area provides a secluded setting for lazy days. Within a short walking distance (approx. 130m.) you will find Makriotika village square with a mini market, a cafe or indulge in traditional dishes at the local taverna. Supermarket, bakery and gas station can be found within approximately 1 km. The quaint village of Agia Efimia, a 5 minute drive, offers all amenities from supermarkets, bars, cafes and tavernas to atm machine, pharmacy, tourist information and car/motorbike/motorboat rental places. There are numerous beautiful pebble coves for you to enjoy your swim and scuba diving lessons can be booked. Other outdoor activities, such as horseback riding & water skiing are provided in the area. Within approx. a 7 minute drive you reach the amazing Myrtos beach famed for the beauty of its blue water (voted one of the top ten beaches in the world). Makriotika and "Auntie’s Cottage" are an ideal base for exploring Kefalonia. The village itself is in a great central location regarding distances, giving easy access to all areas of the island, especially the northern part of the island (Agia Efimia, Sami, Assos, Fiscardo, Myrtos beach).
