Villa Caretta is an impressive, spacious and modern villa, with magnificent views over both Mounda beach and Katelios bay, set on the gentle, wooded slopes of the hillside above the community of Ratzakli on Kefalonia.
The area of Ratzakli is a peaceful residential community located between the sleepy fishing village of Katelios with its beach-front tavernas and the more quietly vibrant resort of Skala on Kefalonia. Kaminia or Mounda, the island’s major turtle nesting beach, is the stunning backcloth of the spectacular panoramic views enjoyed from this splendid villa. Nestling between ancient olive and wild oak trees on the western slopes, bordering Old Skala, Caretta is a tribute to modern standards of comfort and design.
With its large 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 the views, it is hard to imagine a more perfect combination. Inside, the villa continues to impress with open plan, comfortable and well equipped living space, matched by clean lines and pastel coloured complimentary furnishings. The lounge and kitchen area are together in the centre of the villa, with patio doors leading out to the shaded outdoor “al fresco” dining area.
Off to the left hand side is a hexagonal shaped indoor dining area, again with patio doors out to the swimming pool terrace. On the far right is the ground floor 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 bedrooms. All have high exposed pine beamed ceilings with individual terraces or balconies and panoramic sea views.
The master suite is worthy of special mention as its shaded, hexagonal shaped, pavillion style private terrace, is the perfect vantage spot, from where its fortunate occupants can chill out over a frosted glass of the local Robola wine or catch up on that ubiquitous holiday novel !
