On a west-facing hillside above Kefalonia's rugged northern coast, the tiny hamlet of Markandonata gets stunning sunset views across fields and woodland onto the deep blue Ionian Sea. Set in pretty Mediterranean planted grounds with a pool, these charming whitewashed cottages have been lovingly restored by a British owner to combine traditional local style with tasteful antique furniture and full modern comforts.
Ideal for a romantic escape or for families wanting a peaceful rural holiday retreat, one cottage sleeps 4-6, the other 2-4. They are set a discreet distance apart from one another, and the peaceful setting is wonderful. Close by are excellent unspoilt beaches: two are within walking distance, and Myrtos, frequently cited as one of the most beautiful in Greece, is a 30-minute drive away.
Lime Cottage is the larger of the two. You enter into an open-plan kitchen and living room, with white and grey flecked marble floors, a whitewashed wooden pitched ceiling and access to three terraces. There is also a mezzanine floor above the living room with a sofabed.
Lime House's triple aspect master bedroom has exposed stone walls with a wooden floor and French doors opening onto a small balcony with views across the fields towards the sea. There is a second double bedroom and a large family bathroom with walk-in shower. All the rooms have air conditioning.
Outside there is a swimming pool, sun-deck, sun loungers and two large dining areas with space for ample seating.
Fig Cottage has been renovated to a very high standard. There is one double bedroom with ceiling fan that steps down directly into the kitchenette and living area. The living area has a sofa bed if needed also to sleep 2. The bathroom is modern but with character and a great shower space. The open-plan kitchen/living area opens on to a large stone terrace with views of the gardens and ocean in the distance.
The cottages are being sold fully furnished and ready to move into.
