Villa Mirsini is an impressive, contemporary and spacious family home. Perched high on the mountain above Skala, it enjoys extraordinary panoramic sea and mountain views over Kefalonia’s south coast and across the Ionian Sea.
Perched on the shoulder of the mountain, Mirsini is a revered member of just a limited handful of luxury villas that hug the upper contours of the resort of Old Skala. The first striking feature that becomes immediately apparent is the superb, large, iridescent, infinity-edged swimming pool, extending across almost the entire frontage of the villa and an abundant terrace on which to soak up the sun and admire those arresting views over the Ionian Sea to the Greek mainland, shimmering on the horizon. As with all the villas in Old Skala, the concept of outdoor living is a key factor in the layout of villa Leonidas and its accommodation. A number of well placed windows and doors allow both easy access to these areas and ensure that those captivating views are not forgotten.
Inside, the villa continues to impress with open plan, comfortable and well equipped living space, matched by clean lines and pastel coloured furnishings to match. The lounge and dining area are together to the right-hand side of the villa, with patio doors leading out to the shaded outdoor “al fresco” dining area. Off to the left hand side is a well equipped kitchen, again with patio doors out to the swimming pool terrace. On the far left is the ground floor double bedroom, which is great for anyone who does not like steps and perhaps enjoys just being a few steps away from that delightful swimming pool.
Upstairs is again an inspiration, with three beautifully appointed, spacious bedrooms. All have high exposed pine beamed ceilings with individual terraces or balconies and panoramic sea views
Villa Mirsini ia a great choice for a large family or group of friends. The rooms are all very spacious and its stunning location, make it the perfect vantage spot, from where its fortunate occupants can chill out over a frosted glass of the local Robola wine of Kefalonia or catch up on that ubiquitous holiday novel !
