Villa Melissa is a detached villa with private pool set in lawned gardens with sea views. The sandy beach of Katelios, with its waterfront tavernas and bars, is just a few minutes' walk.
The villa is ideal for a romantic holiday as well as for families. Villa Melissa sleeps from 2 to 5 persons and whilst being close to the sea it remains private and secluded. Panoramic views from the villa take in the local countryside and sea beyond.
Designed by the same architect as Villa Alexandra which is close by, Melissa is a bungalow style, fully air-conditioned villa which has been designed for idyllic summer living.
The front door opens into an air-conditioned open plan living/dining room with kitchen. Two sets of French windows lead out to the shaded patio and to the lawned gardens and private swimming pool.
A hallway from the open plan living area takes you to the two bedrooms and family bathroom. The living room has space for a folding bed suitable for a child if required.
The living room has two comfortable sofas with a cosy fireplace and TV and Wifi. The French windows lead out onto a shaded patio area with table and chairs. A folding bed can be used in the living room for a child or one of the sofas can be made up as a bed to leave more space in the living room.
Kitchen And Dining Room:
The fully fitted kitchen includes a full cooker, microwave oven, large dishwasher and fridge. The dining area has a large dining table with 6 chairs. You will also find kettle, toaster and coffee machine and all you need for a self-catering family holiday to Kefalonia.
French windows lead out to a shaded area by the garden and the private swimming pool.
There are two air conditioned bedrooms: 1 Double and 1 Twin.
The master bedroom has double bed, dressing table with mirror and plenty of storage space in built in wardrobes. The bedroom is fully air conditioned and has French doors leading out to a private area of the garden.
The twin room is ideal for children, as the room has a window rather than balcony doors, so there is no direct access to the pool. Fitted wardrobes provide plenty of storage space.
The villa has a large family bathroom with full bath and shower. Maid service, linen and towels are also included. The bathroom also has a utility area with washing machine.
The private swimming pool, exclusive for your use only, faces South and is set amidst a lovely lawned garden. There are sunbeds and sunshades available for relaxing by the pool.
Villa Melissa is set in spacious grounds with private pool and sunbathing terraces. Garden table and chairs are provided for the pergola area. Next to the pool is a brick built BBQ and a large pergola providing plenty of shade for al fresco dining or for shaded relaxation by the pool.

We loved the wildlife - saw lizards a large toad and swallows nesting as well as the numerous cats. Would use again and recommend to friends. The location if the villa is perfect - being very quiet yet close to all the amenities. Lovely place and gorgeous villa. Katelios is a pretty and quiet town but still has everything we needed.
Brochure/Web Description Comments:
The description is very accurate - the villa and it's gardens are beautiful clean modern and everything was in excellent working order.
Villa Melissa is situated at the beginning of a peaceful country lane just a short walk to the sandy beach of Katelios along with its selection of Tavernas and bars. The resort of Skala is 6 km away from Katelios and the nearest port is Poros 18 km. Kefalonia airport is 27 km.
A short walk from the villa brings you to the Blue Flag beach of Aghia Barbara which is sandy and has sunbeds and beach umbrellas.
Katelios is a sleepy coastal village with sandy beach and small fishing harbour. Katelios is famous for its fresh fish tavernas that line the waterfront. There are several (low-key) bars, a couple of supermarkets and an exchange/car rental office. The beach rarely becomes busy, with the largest number of visitors being the loggerhead turtles who favour the soft sand for making a nest!
