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 owner has put in a fabulous bathroom in the 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.
