Villa Alba holiday home details

Want to soak up as much of the Mediterranean sun as possible? Or would you like a bit of shade and seclusion away from the mid-day heat? Villa Alba offers the best of both worlds, with large grounds that are perfect for sun worshippers and picnickers, along with a shaded terrace and cool, light interiors if you’d like to get out of the sun. Air conditioning in each bedroom also helps to make the night times cooler and the sleeping easier.

The villa is located around 1.4km from the sandy beaches of Minia and Ames, giving you the perfect base camp to explore the island. It’s also very close to the airport, while not being on any flight path. Inside, the villa is attractively furnished with bright and spacious interiors, and offers you a high degree of comfort and style.

Although Villa Alba is quiet and secluded, with lots of space surrounding it, you also have the option to book it together with Villa Tramonto, which can be ideal for two families looking to holiday together yet enjoy their independence.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • Cephalonia is home to some breathtakingly rugged Mediterranean scenery, as well as glorious sandy beaches, Byzantine churches and small fishing villages.
  • To the north, the island is mountainous and rocky, and you’ll find a number of secluded beaches. The harbour villages of Fiskardo is a must-see, as it was one of the few places that wasn’t affected by the earthquake of 1953, so you can still see traditional and historic architecture here.
  • To the south, the landscape is less rugged and has a covering of olive, cypress, orange and lemon trees. The island remains largely unspoilt and hasn’t succumbed to mass tourism.
  • Minia and Ames are small, quiet resorts located about 10kms south of the capital Argostoli. They both have small, sandy beaches, and you’ll find a mini-market and a couple of tavernas in Ames. Before you stop for lunch, why not explore some of the sandy coves along the coastline from Ames?
  • One of the most popular destinations on Cephalonia is only 8kms away. Makris Yialos is known by locals and tourists for its glorious sandy beach. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can hire out water sports equipment here.
  • Lassi is the largest beach resort on Cephalonia and is just 8kms away. It’s very popular with families, and you’ll find plenty of shops to browse in, as well as a number of restaurants offering local, fresh dishes.
  • Please note, some resort facilities may be closed during the early and late seasons, especially in the smaller resorts.
