The Skinos Livatos Eco Farm with villa, on the Greek island of Kefallonia in the Ionian Sea, is solar and wind-powered. Located near to Lixouri, all the materials that have been used in the construction of the villa are environment-friendly. The farm is also completely autonomous in its electricity supply - using photovoltaic panels and a wind generator. All organic garbage is recycled using compost where non-organic materials are gathered and transferred for recycling.
The villa can sleep 9 persons and has a basement of 200 sq.m. which is used as a cellar, garage and for storage.One of the rooms, along with its bathroom, is accessible for people with special needs. The 100sq.m sea water swimming pool of 100 s.m. is also accessible to people with special needs.
There is also a tree house, a playground and a traditional wood-burning bread oven and barbeque.
Available activities include organic farming, bee keeping, horseback riding and star-gazing, using 2 robotic telescopes. You can also visit nearby villages and beaches or hike in the mountains with fertile valleys, forests and olive groves.
