Private Owner From Argostoli, Greece Member since Mar 2012

THINAIAS GI Imagine… a place whose name and history come from a time when gods talked to mortals, when travelers set off for unknown destinations and romances could end up as tragedies. Kefalonia, an island of the Ionian Sea, took its name from Kefalos. He was the bravest warrior that the King of Thiva had at his service. After wandering around for several years, he managed to conquer the island, in the name of his King. So, he gave it to him, as a present. Kefalos ruled successfully the four regions of Kefalonia, giving each the name of one of his four sons. The sons that Prokris, his wife and the love of his life, had given him. Prokris is the tragic figure of this story.Kefalos killed her himself by accident, while hunting. Of course, according to the legend, Artemis, the goddess, who was jealous of their love, had something to do with this accident… Kefalos spent the rest of his life on the island together with Prokris’ beloved dog, Lelapas. Prokris was the daughter of the Athenian King, Erextheas. To honour her memory, Kefalos planted a vine on the island. It was a symbol of fertility. He planted it in a region of wild beauty and with an amazing view. He named this region “Thineas gi”. That is, land of the Athenian woman. It is exactly there, in this mythical place that the villa “Thineas Gi” was built, with absolute respect for the land and the incredible natural environment of the place.Its exquisite design which owes its uniqueness to the minimal touches of traditional elements as well as the never-ending view that lies in front of the fresh pool, turn the villa into an earthly paradise. With 4 independent rooms and with the highest hospitality and comfort standards, it can accommodate 8-10 people. At the same time, it becomes not only the ideal holiday residence for a family or a group of friends but also the perfect honeymoon destination.
