Kefalonia, the ancient Kingdom of Odysseus is the largest and most beautiful of the Ionian islands. It is gifted with an amazing variety of landscape from calm, inviting sandy beaches to breath-taking mountain peaks and ravines.
Inglessata Rose Studios are built in Certified Organic Orchards which produce primarily oranges and lemons. The studio apartments are managed by Wayne and Anna-Maria Konstantaki-Burke. Anna-Maria was born in India, travelled around the world and settled in Kefalonia. Wayne was born in California, travelled throughout Europe and fell in love with Kefalonia. Wayne and Anna-Maria are both academics and prefer the serenity and beauty of their organic orchards which surround the studio apartments. While staying at the Rose studio apartments one can learn how to cook traditional Kefalonian dishes, participate in guided meditation and yoga.
The Inglessata Rose Estate is conveniently situated in that the night life of Argostoli is only 15 minutes away by car, and yet the oak, chestnut, olive and fruit trees in the organic orchards which enclose the apartments provide a tranquil atmosphere for rest and reflection.
