On a west-facing hillside above Kefalonia's rugged northern coast, the tiny hamlet of Markandonata gets stunning sunset views across fields and woodland onto the deep blue Ionian Sea. Set in pretty Mediterranean planted grounds with a pool, these charming whitewashed cottages have been lovingly restored by British owner Marcus Love - a costume designer for cinema - to combine traditional local style with tasteful antique furniture and full modern comforts.
Ideal for a romantic escape, or for families wanting a peaceful rural holiday retreat, one cottage sleeps 4-6, the other 2-4. They are set a discreet distance apart from one another, and the peaceful setting is wonderful. Close by are excellent unspoilt beaches: two are within walking distance, and Myrtos, frequently cited as one of the most beautiful in Greece, is a 30-minute drive away.
Lime Cottage is the larger of the two. You enter into an open-plan kitchen and living room, with white-and-grey flecked marble floors and a whitewashed wooden pitched ceiling. A cool, light and airy space, it combines modern cooking facilities with a boxy white sofa, armchair and flat-screen TV. There are 2 big white metal fisherman's lamps, as well as spotlights, and an old-fashioned wood-burning stove, making it atmospheric after dark.
Lime's master bedroom has exposed stone walls with a wooden floor, a white wrought-iron double bed and French doors opening onto a small balcony with views across the fields towards the sea. The other bedroom is rather basic though nice, with one exposed stone wall and 2 single beds, making it ideal for a family with 2 children. There's also a white wooden mezzanine level above the living room with a sofabed, meaning that Lime can in theory sleep 6.
Fig Cottage sleeps 2 and is ideal for a romantic escape. There is an open-plan kitchen and living area - again with marble floors and a whitewashed wooden pitched ceiling - which opens onto a lovely stone terrace with sea views. From the kitchen, marble steps lead up to the sleeping area with its wrought-iron double bed, and a shower bathroom. There's also a double sofabed in the lounge.The cottages are being sold fully furnished and ready to move into.
