The Walnut Tree Villa

Overview

Family friendly, comfort and simplicity are the aim at The Walnut Tree.  Everything at the villa has been chosen to be comfortable, washable, and easy to replace.   There is nothing worse than worrying about spills and breaking ornaments.

The villa has been arranged to comfortably accommodate 10 adults up to a maximum of 13 guests by prior arrangement. Because the living space is fully flexible, larger parties, particularly multi-generational family groups, and even wedding parties can be easily accommodated with the extra beds available.  Both floors are fully independent, meaning they have their own fully equipped kitchen/living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms, air conditioning and heating.   The Walnut Tree can either be arranged as two self-contained apartments or as a whole house for relaxed communal living.  

Kitchen Areas

Both upstairs and downstairs kitchens are well equipped and ready for relaxed holiday cooking, formal dining, or event catering. When hosting event catering, the adjoining utility room with additional fridge makes a very convenient extension to the main kitchen and food preparation areas.  

Utility Room

The spacious utility room has a beer fridge, two washing machines, drying racks, ironing board and an iron.  With its own W/C and direct access to the garden via double patio doors.

Five Bedrooms

We have used natural fabrics throughout the bedrooms with good sized beds, cotton or linen/cotton mix bed linen and simple furnishings. All bedrooms have A/C, built-in cupboards, 2 large mirrors and good lighting.   We have a cot plus all necessary bed linen, changing mat, etc.

Bathrooms

Downstairs – A fully fitted family bathroom. Shower room basin & toilet. Toilet and Basin. Poolside shower

Upstairs – A fully fitted family bathroom.

Additional Facilities

There is air conditioning in all bedrooms and in the first floor living area which can be utilised for additional guest beds.   Pull-down fly screens are installed on all windows and some double doors as well.    Full central heating for low season rentals.  Log burners on both floors for taking any winter chills away.   Smart TVs, DVD players, CD players, DVDs, CDs, WiFi, yoga mats, kettlebells, games, books and playing cards are all provided.

Garden

The Walnut Tree Villa is set in about an acre of garden with a productive olive grove.   There is a large swimming pool, a barbecue area, table tennis, a boule court. For young children the grounds are walled & gated, private and secluded, there are arches and shrub tunnels where kids can be kids and explore. Games equipment including beach shoes, swimming goggles, beach parasols, etc are provided in the ‘understairs’ cupboard.

Villa Servicing

We provide a full villa service weekly.  Naturally guests can request extra cleaning, charged at 120 euros per clean.  There is always a good supply of clean beach towels to be found in the utility room cupboard, as well as two washing machines and laundry detergent.

Imagine

A sense of space throughout the villa and its grounds.  Enjoy huge skies, mountain views, spectacular sunrises, and sunsets. Marvell as the light changes shade and throws shadows on the hills and mountains of Kefalonia, stretching away into the distance in every direction.   

This family villa is very much a place to disconnect.  All you can hear as you while away blissful hours under stunning skies are sheep bells, farmers calling to their livestock and the sound of wild birds, the wind gently sighing in the pine trees and sometimes distant church bells.   

Of course, as well as the pool and veranda there are plenty of places all around the garden to eat, drink and be merry and places to play, chat or catch some rays.   But most importantly, there are places to relax, to switch off, read, swim or just do nothing….
