Villa in Markata, nearby Agia Efimia, Kefalonia - In A Tranquil, Traditional Village Just 5 Min Drive To The Picturesque Harbour Agia Efimia & Myrtos
Avisania Villa is a lovely country house, perfectly equipped, offering privacy and high quality accommodation for up to 4-5 people (2 air-conditioned bedrooms).
It is situated in the small and typical Greek village of Markata: a peaceful and tranquil village, approx. 5 km from the picturesque yachting port of Agia Efimia, embedded in the high mountains of Pylaros. The famous beach of Myrtos, definitely the most beautiful beach of Kefalonia, is only 5 km from the villa. Surrounding Agia Efimia there are numerous clear blue pebble coves and beaches, ideal for snorkelling. The location is ideal for nature lovers and hikers. You can walk for example the main road to Agia Efimia. You will pass through an old traditional village, above the valley of Pylaros and facing Agia Efimia and the sea. You can also walk to the beautiful Monstery of Themata (approx. 4 km) which offers spectacular views. Markata is located in the centre of the island, and is thus an ideal base for exploring the island.
The villa is surrounded by spacious terraces offering both sunny and shaded areas. The pool and the pool terrace (with relaxing sun beds and sun umbrella) are on the south-western side. This location offers plenty of sun during the whole day, privacy and a panoramic view of the sea, Agia Efimia and the surrounding mountains. On the eastern side there are 2 terraces made of natural stone and furnished with comfortable garden furniture. There is plenty of space for children to play. A very old olive tree adds Mediterranean charm and provides shade and pleasant coolness even in the hottest summer months.

A lovely villa and surroundings.
The villa was ideal for us. Although there were a number of steps, they were easily manageable. Facilities within the villa provided all that we required and to a high standard for a short or long stay. Regular visits from the owner were very welcome and her gifts of wine, eggs etc were very generous. The location was beautiful overlooking the valley leading down to Agia Effimia and the three open sides gave lovely views of the surrounding area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to return in the future.
This a lovely villa in a perfect location. We had a great family holiday and would recommend it. Elina is lovely, always helpful and the welcome food is great.
Property immaculately clean, very well equipped, lots of different areas to sit outside both sun and shade. Lovely pool. Air con very efficient. Eleni very helpful and welcome basket fantastic. Within walking distance of one taverna and a cafe/bar and a short drive or taxi ride to Agia Efimia. We felt very relaxed here and had a superb holiday.
Wonderful viila & pool- Highly recommended.
We spent 2 fantastic weeks in this beautiful villa. The villa was spotless, well maintained & just as descibed on the website. Eleni the owner could not do enough for us. She brought home made wine, fruit & other treats when she came to clean & even bought us a gift when we left! The location means that you need a car, but it's only a few mins by csr to the village centre. It's our 9th year in Agia Efimia & this lovely villa & pool will definitely be home to us again!
Thank you so much for your kind words! You will be always welcome if you would like to return! Thank you, Lida and Eleni
Fantastic villa in a nice peacefull location. Exceptionally clean and beautiful maintained. Owner was very very helpful and extremely kind leaving us lot's of nice little gifts e.g. fresh eggs and salad. All theses little touches made our holiday very enjoyable. Very close by car or taxi to some beautiful restaurants. Would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a mixture of peace and quiet but with the opportunity to dip in and out on nightlife. Will definitely be back someday.please dont miss out. One thing to bear in mind you definitely need a car in this location.
We had a wonderful two week stay in Villa Avisania. The villa provides you with every comfort one can imagine. It is in a quiet unspoiled location. The wonderful village of Agia Efimia though is near. There are splendid restaurants and the village is very pretty.
The house really feels like home. It is cosy, comfortable and the swimming pool is just wonderful and very private. It is centrally located on the island, so we enjoyed touring the beautiful Island of Keffalonia. The house is very well maintained and we even found regular supply of fresh eggs in the fridge. Eleni, thank you very much for you kindness!
We had the most amazing vacation in this splendid spot and we would love to return to it! We recommend it for people you look for a peaceful surrounding and yet close to all the ameneties you want.
