It is located 100m from Assos beach & restaurants. The Eco-friendly architecture of the two-storey building reflects a traditional Mediterranean style, with thick stone-walls, private balconies for al fresco dining, barbeque, patios, sun terraces and a bougainvillea pergola. The villa is Greek tourist board (EOT) accredited. At the heart of the small seaside fishing village of Assos, it is a very short walk (100m) from local amenities: the beach, two mini markets, a few tavernas, a cafe and a bar. The holiday villa is situated on a quiet and central location, not overlooked by any other properties. Blue Note House has unrestricted views over the sea at Assos bay, the surrounding green mountains, the picturesque village of Assos, the Venetian castle hill and the starry sky at night. Eco-friendly elements The holiday villa has bio-climatic features drawn from traditional Mediterranean architecture, such as thick stone-walls for added insulation, windows with shades, a dual aspect design for proper airing of spaces, natural shading and protection from northern winds, due to its location and orientation. A biological septic tank is used for wastewater treatment. Outdoors Details Blue Note House has great unrestricted views and it is centrally located and quiet, as it stands on elevated ground. In order to reach the external entrance of the house, you walk up twenty stairs from street level. The private covered garage is on street level. It can accommodate one small to medium size car. There is no direct access from the garage to the house. There is also a municipal free car park area 50 meters from the villa. A large bougainvillea pergola covers the lower ground patio, as you enter the villa grounds. One of the upper floor verandas enjoys ample natural shade from a very large Eucalyptus tree, while tents are also available. Thus it is very comfortable to sit outside, even during extreme heat or sunshine. If you wish to get a sun tan it is possible to sunbathe on the verandas or the pool area. The two upper floor verandas both have built in sitting areas. When dinning outdoors, you can easily transport dishes from the kitchen, as the main veranda dining area is located outside the kitchen & living area. Cushions are provided. Located on a separate level, the private swimming pool area is ideal for sunbathing, with a small pool (5x5x1.30meters), sunbeds, a small table and a small built-in charcoal barbecue. Private access to the swimming pool area from the upper floor is possible, as you can walk down the veranda staircase, without going through the ground floor exit. In the same way, you can access the upper floor from an external staircase, when coming in from outside. Indoors Details The main entrance to the house is on ground level. As you enter, a large bedroom is situated on the left, with a double bed, a study and en-suite bathroom with shower enclosure. To the right, you can find a common lounge area, a shower room, a WC and a utility room with a washing machine. A second bedroom with two single beds (bunk bed) and a study is also situated there. Both bedrooms are equipped with air-conditioning, large wardrobes and have their own independent access to the patio and the private swimming pool. On the upper floor, there is a spacious sitting lounge with designer black leather sofas, coffee table, built-in shelves with French books, a fireplace, a dining table, a fully equipped functional open plan kitchen. On this floor, down the corridor, is situated a large bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom (with a bathtub), a second bedroom with two single beds (bunk bed) and a bathroom (with a shower enclosure). The whole floor is equipped with central air-conditioning. The kitchen and the main bedroom have access to two large verandas, with tents and built-in sitting areas, ideal for a lazy breakfast, sun tanning or dinner with sea and castle hill views. Both verandas are connected by separate staircases to the ground floor patio, the private swimming pool area and the villa entrance. All four bedrooms have independent access to the patios, sunny verandas and the swimming pool, so you can go outside without disturbing the other guests. If you feel like reading, the bedrooms and the living room area are furnished with built in shelves which contain lots of French books, such as novels, car magazines and children's books, as well as games, sightseeing guides to Kefalonia, Zakynthos, and nearby Greek islands.

About the neighborhood
Wandering around Assos will give you an idea about what Kefalonia looked like before the destructive earthquake of 1953 that razed the whole island to the ground. If you decide to visit the castle (during early morning or later afternoon, when there is less heat), wear sturdy shoes, because there is quite a lot of walking. The paths are excellent, recently renovated. The views of Assos bay from the castle are fantastic.
Getting around
From Assos it is a short drive to the cosmopolitan and picturesque fishing village of Fiskardo, where you could also hire a motor boat and go on a sightseeing tour of the area by sea, whereby you could also go swimming in surrounding otherwise inaccessible beaches. Another nearby sight is the beautiful port town of Sami, to visit the island’s spectacular caves: Melissani and Drogarati. In Kefalonia you can also indulge in other activities such as horse riding, kayak, hunting, wine tasting or sailing. If you like trekking, you can explore the Mount Ainos National Park, which is 1,650 meters high, one of the tallest mountains on a Greek island. If you are an airplane enthusiast, you can book a sightseeing flight tour on a Cirrus airplane.
