Villa Jasmin, a beautiful villa surrounded by colourful gardens, offers loads of space to enjoy inside and out. With stunning views all around in every direction, its hard to drag yourself off the sun bed, but if you do you will see you are in a great spot to explore the island.
The great advantage of the villa is the position. From here you overlook the whole area of Trapezaki. The villa offers plenty of space and comfort inside and out. The position of the villa is south facing so you benefit from the maximum hours of sunshine from the time it rises from behind the mountain until the late evening when you can enjoy the wonderful sunsets. The bedrooms on the first floor enjoy their own balconies, and all of the bedrooms have their own ensuite bathroom. The gardens that surround the villa are filled with colour and you will be fascinated by the varies different species of butterflies and moths that come to feast. The villa is a great base for anyone who drag themselves away from the view, to explore the island. Nowhere is to far away, and you have the advantage of the larger supermarkets being just a 10 minute drive away. On an evening you can enjoy BBQ, whether it the succulent meats from the local butcher or fresh fish from the local fishermen.
I am English and first came to Kefalonia working for Thomson Holidays in 1999 met my husband that summer, who is from the island, and we had our big fat Greek wedding in 2005. We live on site and have 2 children, Katerina and Leo. We are on hand to answer any questions you may have and to guide you to be sure to get the best out of your holiday. Of course though, we are really in the background but its nice to know we are here if needed.
Amanda Hopkins purchased this villa in 1999
My husband and his brother, who are born and bred kefalonians, know the island very well and were looking for a plot of land to invest in with the idea of developing it for villas. when we all first saw the land here we knew it was perfect, the lay of land would mean every villa would have a perfect view not only out to sea but far more. views of what makes kefalonia special, the open lush countryside the backdrop of the impressive mountain range which is the island national park, and not far from anywhere either. meaning it offers the perfect spot for a holiday with easy access to everything, but the benefit of returning back to peace and quiet and stunning views.
The views are fantastic are really do have the wow factor.
We have a UK bank account which we ask for all payments to be made into. At the time of booking we ask for a 200 UK pounds non-refundable deposit. The remaining balance we ask to be paid 10 weeks prior to travelling.

The first beach is a lovely sandy cove with sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire and a beach bar (normally from June - September)The second beach leading off from the taverna is again a sandy cove from which you can walk onto 3 further secluded beaches. The beaches are great for all, the water is crystal clear and very gently shelves out, meaning it is perfect for small children. Ample room for parking too.
