Bedroom of Joleni Cottage

Wheelchair-accessible Cottage Kefalonia

Surrounded by trees, our accessible holiday home Joleni Cottage is peacefully situated on the outskirts of Keramies village, just 10 km from the capital Argostoli. Away from the hustle of tourism and yet only a few minutes away from several of Kefalonia’s most beautiful beaches, Joleni Cottage in Kefalonia is set on a 2200m² plot of land in the lush region of Keramies and Spartia. The house is located 200 metres from the street on an unpaved side road and offers tranquillity and privacy. After a long day at the beach or exploring the island, this is the perfect place to relax.

Joleni Cottage's garden with accessible terraces

During the renovation in 2018, we designed the 100m² ground-level holiday home to allow wheelchair access for disabled guests. It is step-free throughout the house, the surrounding terraces and the parking area. This is ideal not only for guests with limited mobility but also for families with young children or guests who appreciate the convenience of a barrier-free environment.

Sitting area with direct access to the main terrace

Joleni Cottage has two bedrooms, a large bathroom, an additional WC and a kitchen with a generous dining and living area.

Within a short walking distance (5-10 minutes) in Keramies, there is a basic minimarket. The nearest restaurant is situated just outside the village. The nearby village Spartia is a walk of only 15 minutes away (or a 2-minute drive) where you will find two more minimarkets, two cafes/bars and a restaurant.

Relax on the terrace or rather under the shady oak tree?

Breakfast on the covered terrace? A glass of wine at the end of the day under the old oak tree? Or maybe you would rather watch Mount Ainos turning pink at sunset, sitting on the sun terrace? You will find your favourite place.

Sun terrace of Joleni Cottage

At Joleni Cottage you can relax and find tranquillity. There is hardly any car traffic on this side road. Occasionally you can hear goat bells. Sometimes the neighbour’s dog or cat will come by to visit.

Nightly rates 2024

The rates for Joleni Cottage are based on a per-night basis for the entire house. Included in the rate are bed linen, towels, beach towels, use of the washing machine, air conditioning and final cleaning. For stays longer than one week, additional bed linen will be provided.

Starting from January 1/2024, a new law introduced a climate tax (“Sustainability fee against climate change”) to be paid by the guest on site [FEK A.1217/2023]. This tax will amount to 10 Euros per night for a house this size. To offset this amount somewhat I will not be applying a fee for the final cleaning.

The minimum duration for a reservation is four days. The maximum occupation is five persons plus one baby. A folding bed for a fifth person can be provided in the twin bedroom, or the sofa bed can be made up in the living area.
