Kaligata is a small hamlet close to Metaxata the village where the poet and hero of Greece’s struggle for independence Byron lived and stayed for six months before his last, fateful journey to the mainland. He chose well, because the views across cypress and olive groves to the wide Adriatic beyond would have given him the inspiration for his poetry and the tranquility before the hard road ahead.
Two centuries on and of course there have been changes, this delightful, modern villa being one of them. Surrounded by the colourful gardens for which the hamlet is famous Villa Dina is a perfect holiday retreat. Naturally there is one important addition that Byron would not have experienced, a private pool on the front terrace of the house! Magnificent sunsets are a speciality of Kefalonia’s west coast and there is a separate BBQ area from which to appreciate them.
The villa is a short drive from some of the finest beaches on the island, Skala to the south or the smaller and quieter beaches such as Avithos. A trip to the island’s highest mountain Mt Ainos, home not only to the monastery of Kefalonia’s patron saint, Agios Gerasimos but also the vineyards where the famous Robola wine is made should not be missed. There’s history with a British connection nearby in the well preserved ruins of St George’s castle.
For everyday supplies there are mini-markets just a five minute drive away. Also easily reached is Argostoli with its pleasant pedestrianized streets, excellent and varied shops, cafes and restaurants, a long harbour frontage lined with fresh fruit and vegetable stalls where fresh fish can be bought straight off the boat.
The bedrooms, two with twin beds and a double open onto the sea-facing terrace, along with two bathrooms and there is a spacious open plan living room, dining and well appointed kitchen area.
We cannot guarantee that the Villa Dina will bring out the poet in you, but you never know it just might!
