Vassili built a perfect place for quietness, inspiration, peace and beauty. I have been extremely well in this house, in this domain blessed with perfect hospitality. It is right by the sea, next to three very good restaurants, you don't even need a car if you want to. I have been also very touched by all the attentions during our stay. I would very warmfully recommend this place."

About Villa Rossa

Villa Rossa consists of two cottages for a total of 8 people and has its own pool. These two cottages are always rented out together with no exceptions. Vrahinari, a sandy beach, is only a 220 metre-walk from the gate of the property. The cottage is built in a traditional style and is painted in the colours of the Italian flag (Rossa means red in Italian). This was in order to commemorate the long, cheerful and prosperous presence of Italians in Kefalonia, from the times of the Venetians to modern-day tourists.

This very quiet, private and safe estate of 6,000 square metres is surrounded by a stone wall and wrought iron or steel mesh fencing with a tall steel gate. The estate has more than 140 olive trees and vines. No unhealthy chemicals are used anywhere in the estate. Everything is bio: the olives, grapes, peaches, herbs, etc.  A wide internal gravel path circles the entire estate and is ideal for leisurely walks within the estate. There is a stone terrace with the best sea view from within the estate.

Regarding your hosts, apart from me, Vas, my friends Zaneta and Take will help you with whatever is needed before and during your stay, if I am not around.

Beaches in front of the estate

Vrahinari beach
From my property, it is only a 3 minutes walk to the nearest sandy beach of Vrahinari.  This beach has a cozy beach bar and offers sun loungers and thatched parasols for hire. 

Vatsa beach
A rock formation separates Vrahinari from its sister beach, Vatsa. Thus you can get to Vatsa either by swimming from Vrahinari beach or by walking a short distance. Sandy Vatsa has several thatched parasols and flanks the estuary of the Vatsa stream, a popular hangout for ducks!

Restaurants within walking distance
There are three restaurants (tavernas) within walking distance. One overlooking Vrahinari beach in front of the estate, one on Vatsa beach and another one on a hill overlooking Vatsa.

Walk options

Long walk
From Vatsa, to walk towards the West, you may take a self driven free platform to cross to the other side of the river. From there you can walk through the amazing scenery, great for birdwatching, towards the picturesque lighthouse of Gerogombos. At some point, you come to the Lagadakia pebble beach, lost in between the rocky cliffs on the sea side.

Another long walk option 
From Vrahinari, to walk towards the South East, follow the rocky coastal flatlands, continue on a small meandering road until you arrive at Kounopetra. Kounopetra is a peninsula with a tiny fishing harbour and great views of the East part of Kefalonia, including Mount Ainos. In the vicinity towards the East, you will find a restaurant and Kounopetra beach. This beach has sandy shallow waters to swim in and the clay mud at one end of the beach is good for skin peeling

There is a waterpark only 5 minutes drive away.

Mondo Cosseri Kefalonia Estate

My beloved estate is located in the area of Palliki, on the Southwest part of the island, 10 km from the nearest town of Lixouri. Villa Rossa is located within the estate and has exclusive use of it. The estate, 6100 square meters large, is surrounded by a stone wall and wrought iron fencing with a tall steel gate in order to provide a safe and private environment. Thus the property is very quiet and offers a safe environment with lots of privacy and is also apropriate for one or more guest dogs. The estate has more than 140 olive trees and vines. It contains plenty of gravel paths to walk on and a stone terrace to sit and enjoy the sea view and sunsets.  Also located on the property are outside showers to wash away the sea salt and for use with the pool.

There is something magical about this place that relaxes me and rejuvenates me. There is a beautiful beach a few steps away from the front of the estate. On clear nights, the whole universe of stars hangs over my head and the only sounds to be heard are those from the owls. 

Drive to other beaches

Beaches within a reasonable driving distance: Xi, Megas Lakkos, Platia Ammos, Atheras are some of the many choices of beaches. Platia Ammos may or may not be accessible as the hundreds of steps built on the face of the cliff may be in disprepair.


Practices in the Mondo Cosseri Kefalonia Estate to promote sustainability of resources, include:

  • Solar cells for heating water 
  • Collecting surplus wood from my other land properties  to burn for heating in the future. 

Vrahinari , Vatsa & Kounopetra from afar

A short drive outside from Lixouri is my own paradise: Kounopetra, Vrahinari and Vatsa 


At the Southwest side of Kefalonia is the rather sleepy town of Lixouri 

The town of Lixouri: There is a post office, banks, chemists, supermarkets,  hairdressers, etc. There are also coffee shops, zaharoplasteia (pastry shops), tavernas and grillhouses. At a grillhouse you can sit down or you can take out souvlaki (skewered meat), gyros (kebab), rotisserie chicken, chips, etc. at reasonable prices. Around Lixouri there is a sailing school, horseback riding, and fishing day-excursions


Argostoli is the capital of the island. Gives its name to the Bay of Argostoli. 

From Argostoli there are day-trips with a glass boat, trips to the famous beach of Navagio at Zante, and so on
