About the villa

A wrap-around terrace encircles this lovely welcoming villa in the heart of Kefalonia’s countryside, incorporating a shaded dining patio, a sitting area comfortably furnished in cool rattan, and ample sun-trap space for leisurely lounging. There are gorgeous views from several perspectives, over the valley and forested hillsides, and over the sea to the islands of Ithaca and Lefkada.

On a lower level reached by steps, the swimming pool is set in its own small terrace, with super-scenic views and with gates at each end of the upper terrace protecting access to it. Within the villa itself the décor and furnishings are designed for comfort and embellished with individuality, most notably in the eclectic collection of objet d’art gathered during the owner’s travels. All the rooms, upstairs and down, have direct access to either the terrace or a balcony. Villa Isicos is close to Katsarata, within walking distance of two good tavernas in Manganos, 4km from Fiskardo, and a five minute drive from Foki Bay beach.  This is a great house for walking - there are marked walking trails and guests very much enjoy the walk down through fields and woodland down to Fiskardo which is approximately 30 minutes. 

 

Reviews

"A wonderful villa beautifully situated providing the most amazing sunrises and gentle breezes later in the day. What more could one want for a relaxing and peaceful holiday – just the distant tinkling of goat bells and the silent swooping of swallows against the sapphire sky. Perfect in every way.”

“We have enjoyed many holidays with CV Villas over 25 years and this is certainly “up there” with the best! The villa is comfy and homely and has gorgeous views from every aspect – the pillows are most comfortable and the Sonos was played day and night by our twin 20 year old and 22 year old sons!”

"We are having an absolutely fabulous time! The villa is amazing and we have manage to explore this beautiful island over the last couple of weeks, it truly is stunning. The only problem we have had is the realisation that we need to leave on Sunday... We are all currently trying to think up ways to stay! 
Suffice to say we will return..."

About the area

Kefalonia

Average weather

Kefalonia is the largest island of the Ionian Islands, however it is not best known for its size but for its unspoiled beauty, stunning sandy beaches, lush forests, spectacular mountains and for neighbouring with Ithaca, the homeland of one of the most famous myths of Ancient Greece’s culture: Ulysses. The island’s wartime travails were recorded in the novel and film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, which did much to put Kefalonia holidays on the map. Whichever part of the island you choose for your villa holiday, you’ll be sure to find your own little slice of paradise nearby.
