Location

From the house it is possible to walk to the nearby village where there are a couple of lovely tavernas and a little shop.
In 25 minutes you can be at the nearest beach. There are lots of other beaches within a 10 minute drive.

A 5 minute drive will bring you into Fiscardo – the delightful fishing port which attracts all the superyachts in the high season. There are many tavernas and bars to choose from all along the waterfront as well as some great clothes and jewellery shops and a couple of little supermarkets. Endless hours can be spent nursing a mojito (or coffee!) while watching the glamourous boats arrive.

Fiscardo has been well preserved – it is a picture postcard village full of great places to entertain all ages.

Transport

Fly to Kefalonia on Olympic, BA, Virgin or Easyjet as well as a host of other charter companies.
The villa is an hours’ drive from the airport.
A hire car is recommended.

Local Information

Fiscardo is a really lovely picturesque harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonias. Of all the villages on this large and diverse island, Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the earthquake of 1953 which ruined most of the  historic buildings on Kefalonia. The tavernas are so beautifully looked after, with their array of red, blue, white and green chairs, each taverna looks more idyllic than the last. The summer visitors come by boat and bring a little sophistication and glamour to Fiskardo which ensures its success as Kefalonia’s favourite town.
Traditional Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer. If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish.  Otherwise a stroll around the harbour will take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts.  Many of these are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo.

Our View

A lovely find – this house was such a special surprise waiting for us in among the fig and lime trees. It has a great atmosphere – so cosy and welcoming, with some fabulous furniture and stylish interiors. It is far from the madding crowd but near enough to the wonderful village of Fiscardo that you wouldn’t feel deprived of a bit of people watching!
 
The garden is beautifully terraced and there are loads of different little spots to relax in during the day.  
 
The owner has put in a fabulous bathroom in the main house with a rose head shower and stone floor. A big table outside the kitchen is in the shade and is somewhere we can see ourselves setting down for a quick game of cards early evening.
 
This house and its neighbouring little cottage would be just perfect for a group with grandparents who don’t want to be on top of their grandchildren. The 2nd house is on the other side of the garden ensuring some peace and quiet. There is a delightful swimming pool below.
 
Note, there are quite a lot of steps in the garden so this house is not suitable for wheelchair users.
