What a villa! We loved every minute of our stay here, and the sunset views of Myrtos Bay are just divine. We can't wait to come back next year.

Local Information

Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the northern tip of Kefalonia, the largest of the seven Ionian islands. 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.

This vibrant, colourful port is bustling in the summer with its many quayside tavernas, fine restaurants, cafes and local bars to satisfy everyone’s palate, and shops, housed in renovated Venetian style mansions. By night, Fiscardo takes on an entirely different perspective. It is considered to be the most cosmopolitan spot in the Ionian Sea, the charming waterfront is lit up and bustling. Amble through the cobbled streets, potter around the odd souvenir shop and array of boutiques.

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, attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquility of Fiscardo.

Our View

This villa really is the most perfect blend of traditional and modern. The façade of the building itself, and the exposed original stonework inside pair seamlessly with the cool, calm and sumptuous soft furnishings within. Situated in the quiet, authentic Kefalonian village of Kothreas, just a short drive from the nearest (stunning) beach, and an easy walk to the local taverna and village shops, nothing is too far away but you can still feel blissfully remote and relaxed.

There’s a wonderful terrace, complete with a good-sized swimming pool and incredible views of the Ionian sea. Luxurious sunbeds are dotted around, perfect for soaking up the rays with a good book, or even an afternoon sunny siesta! Inside, there’s many traditional focal points to each room, perfectly framed by all the mod-cons you’d expect from a house of this standard. Think polished concrete bathrooms in shades of deep terracotta, bright, spacious and airy bedrooms making the most of the sea views. Nothing has been left to chance in the design of these interiors, and the contemporary elements compliment the overall aesthetic perfectly.

This is the perfect place to explore the many delights that Kefalonia has to offer.
