Villa Rossa is cottage accommodation with own pool. It is is located in Kefalonia, 10 km from the town of Lixouri. Kefalonia is not only the island of Captain Corelli's Mandolin, but also may be the key to solving a mystery in the Odyssey (of Greek mythology). A sandy beach is only a 220 metre-walk away. Villa Rossa is within the Mondo Cosseri Kefalonia Estate and has exclusive use over it. This very quiet, private and safe estate of 6,000 m2 is surrounded by stone and steel fencing.

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:
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
