Welcome to our beautiful summer homes in Cephalonia! Located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by a lavish countryside, sandy beaches, and translucent turquoise waters, our homes are minutes away from the island’s main happening scene and airport.

Le logement

The Grape House is one of our three summer homes in Cephalonia.

Our homes are built in a 7,000 Sqm gated property, surrounded by numerous fields, many trees, and beautiful beaches. The closest beach is a 5-7 minute walk away, which is very convenient, especially for large groups, if some of the guests decide to stay back home and relax. All beaches around the property are sandy and have shallow translucent turquoise waters, some of which with caves you can swim into and rocks you can dive off from!

The homes are approximately a 10 minute drive from Argostoli, the island's main town, and a 5 minute drive from the island’s airport, which puts it very close to the island’s main happening scene and makes it very convenient for flying in and out from the island. Argostoli offers a complete range of amenities, including a comprehensive grocers market, a nice shopping district, a diverse cuisine assortment, and a fun nightlife scene. Moreover, a lot of nice tavernas and restaurants can be found scattered around the beachfront and highland villages of the island.

All three of our homes have been built with great care, using carefully selected materials and traditional construction techniques rarely found today. All materials and elements have been carefully chosen and combined to create a unique classic and contemporary homey atmosphere.

The property is comprised by spacious indoor and outdoor facilities built to optimize guest interaction while simultaneously enabling a high level of privacy. All three homes’ terraces form a natural extension of the structure with abundant shaded, lounge, and dinning areas ideal for relaxing, reading, sunbathing, stargazing, and entertaining. Each house has its own 32 square meter swimming pool, fireplace, outdoor kitchen & BBQ area, and fully equipped indoor kitchen. Moreover, the homes are equipped with high speed wireless broadband Internet and a rich entertainment system, which include TV/DVD players and Bose SoundTouch portable Wi-Fi music systems.

Interesting story:

Our homes and their color theme were inspired by the ancient Greek myth of the INOTROPES, three sisters who had the gift to turn water into grapes/wine and soil into wheat and olives. These three ‘food-elements’ are still valued highly within the Greek culture and are considered basic ingredients in both the Greek and Mediterranean cuisines.

In ancient Greek Mythology, the INTROPES were the three daughters of Anios, king of Delos, and granddaughters of god Dionysus, god of fertility. Their names were “Spermo”, which derives from the ancient Greek word ‘spiro’, which means the sow of seeds, “Ino”, which derives from the ancient Greek word ‘inos’, which means wine, and “Elais”, which derives from the ancient Greek word ‘Elea’, which means Olive.

According to the myth, the INOTROPES had the gift to turn water into wine and soil into wheat and olives. This is why Agamemnon, king of Mycenae, as soon as he heard of the myth, hunted to kidnap them so that they could produce food and wine for the Greek armies during the Trojan War.

Nice clean, cosy house with fantastic outdoor space. Great to have daily cleaners on site. Lovely beaches just minutes away. Proximity to airport does mean noise can be annoying and quite regular - particularly at the weekend when there's about 30 takeoffs or landings per day starting around 6am until about midnight. We got used to it but depends what your threshold is for that kind of thing! Had a few minor issues such as pool light not working, useless wifi etc but communication with Carlos was good and most problems were eventually sorted (though not the two mentioned above!). Apparently the slower pace of island life was to blame for the things that didn't get fixed. However, we appreciated the gesture of a bottle of wine brought by Carlos's mother by way of apology, and despite the few niggles we genuinely enjoyed our stay.

We had a lovely stay in Grape House and Carlos, his family (staying in another property) and Caroline and Julie the cleaners all went out of their way to make sure we had a lovely break. Grape House is a very nice property with everything you need and every last detail has been thought of. Kefalonia is a beautiful place and we will certainly be coming back.

Carlos has put a great degree of thought and care into the villas on offer. We stayed in early June at Grape, with our young family and it was more relaxing than we could ever have imagined. The location is great for Argostoli, and some great local beaches in Lassi. We enjoyed full and fun packed days, starting early at the beach and winding down pool side in the afternoon. Thank you for a memorable stay, that is as chic as it is thoughtful. The food package, bathroom products and friendly cleaners really make for a hotel feel. We have no hesitation in recommending to other guests.

We had a wonderful 3 week stay at one of Carlos' 3 villas, we stayed in the Grape house which was perfect for our family, the place was charming, immaculate and cleaned regularly to a high standard, the pool area was swept daily and the pool spotless, we were able to totally relax and feel comfortable as if it were our own home. We had the extra benefit that Carlos was staying in one of the houses with his family who were so lovely and hospitable, they were able to tell us all the best restaurants and beaches of which there are so many on the island. Carlos also provides a pdf which details exactly where to go, the house is close to the airport which really wasn't an issue. The main town of Argostoli has great fresh fish, meat and vegetables and an organic supermarket. The couple that look after the property Danilo and Marife could not do enough to help us and our.l children. In summary a great property with excellent hosts, highly recommended.

We had a fantastic week at the Grape House. The house itself is lovely, with many touches that make it feel like a home. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom was supplied with Korres products (my favourite!). The pool is a good size and perfect for the kids. The housekeepers were wonderful and very accommodating, they were happy to deal with anything that came up and prepared a lovely evening meal for us one night. There is a great barbecue if you want to eat in. If you want to stock up on groceries then the best place is Argostoli which is a 15-20 minute drive away. There are loads of good restaurants there too. We really enjoyed exploring the local beaches, 3 of which are less than a 15 minute walk from the house. The Blue Beach has a great beach bar that serves simple but delicious food (the grilled octopus was particularly good!) so it was great to be able to walk to a restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Our stay at the Villa of "Our Beautyful Homes" was near-perfect! Our hosts went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and convenient, starting from the arrival at the island, throughout our stay and till the very last moment when we left the villa feeling like we are leaving friends behind. The proximity to the airport and to the beach is very convenient, while the villa has bicycles for the guests I reckon having a car is a must in order to go around the island even to the nearest city of Argostoli for shopping or a nice dinner for example. The island of Kefalonia left strong positive impression on our family, the views, the beatches and the people were all marvelles, providing us with a great family summer vacation. Most recommended!

This home was beyond perfect! House is exactly as pictured, if not nicer. Tastefully decorated and had all the amenities we needed. There is a delightful couple on the premises that take care of daily housekeeping and even grilled fresh fish for us one night! Carlos is a great host! From the start to the end, he was very cordial and pleasant to work with. He even arranged for a pickup on arrival! He left a basket of food/wine that helped as we have kids, and we could make a meal right away. The island - Cephalonia is gorgeous. Natural landscapes/non commercial, perfect getaway. Highly recommend!
