The house is located in the village of Farsa, 10 km from Argostoli and more specifically, on the beautiful Limioni site on the outskirts of the village, sloping down towards the sea.
Upon one’s arrival, the first thing that strikes one is the spectacular view. The house is situated on a hillside only 150 meters from the sea, overlooking the crystal blue waters and the gulfs of Lixouri and Argostoli.
Geographically, Farsa is located strategically in the centre of the island, this being convenient for excursions to the beaches and many worthwhile attractions of the island. Thus, the visitor travels almost equal distances to all destinations:- Lixouri: 23 km / Sami: 28 km / Myrtos: 22 km / Fiskardo: 42 km / Skala: 42 km
