Villa Mema is situated on a hillside of the colourful yachting harbour of Agia Efimia with numerous idyllic flint bays, little shops, friendly taverns and cafes. The secluded and elevated position of the property makes the villa to a truly magical place for your holidays. Breathtaking views from every corner of the house across the azzure Ionian Sea and the island of Ithaca. Just a breath away from the center of the village but still a peaceful and tranquil location offering a lot of privacy.
Villa Mema (approx. 110m² ) is built in accordance to the island's architecture. It is arranged over two floors, well equipped and tastefully furnished with selected traditional furnishings of highest standard and comfort. No surprise that the film star Penelope Cruz chose this place to stay during the filming of 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin'.
Outside, there are two large front terraces offering privacy and stunning views to the harbour of Agia Efimia and the sea. The pool terrace is equipped with 4 relaxing sun beds. Pool and front terraces are surrounded by different patios with shaded relaxing areas and decorated with a variety of lovely Mediterranean flowers such as oleanders, hibiscus, jasmines, roses.
A review from a recent guest should explain everything:
"The villa is even more appealing than the wonderful photographs on the website, with location, layout, facilities and ongoing maintenance exactly as described. It has every convenience and feels like a real home. I chose it as the place to celebrate my 80th birthday, as my elder son and his wife have an apartment in the village; and I took my younger son and daughter and their spouses. They had the two bedrooms and I chose to be on the very comfortable sofa bed in the living room, with its own en-suite shower room.
The hot weather in July was a good test of the air conditioning, which worked perfectly, as did all the plumbing and the cooking equipment. The star was the swimming pool, which was immaculately maintained, with crystal clear water all the time. The flowers were at their best and the view is sensational. The village is delightful with some well-stocked supermarkets and gift shops, and all the excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance - our favourite was "Paradise."
We did some touring, although we would have been happy never to leave Villa Mema. Our favourite place was Assos and we enjoyed the shopping and waterside restaurants in Fiscardo. There is so much to see on that beautiful island and there are also some excellent boat trips.
The communication with the villa's Manager in advance was efficient and friendly and on arrival we were greeted very warmly by the lovely lady owner, who also came round to say goodbye as we left most reluctantly.
I booked the villa two years in advance and our week there was, for us all, a dream come true. "

Though I was born in Athens, I am a half Kefalonian and have spent a lot of my childhood holidays on this beautiful island. I always loved this place, its stunning natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the people. I was lucky being able to turn my passion into a business and set up an agency specialized in lovely Holiday Rentals in Kefalonia.
In winter time I live in Germany and in summer I am on the island and take personally care of my guests and the houses.
