At 8 km from the villa, Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian Islands. Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953, that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia. Fiscardo, with its waterfront tavernas and bars, is simply a delight. Strict building regulations, to maintain the elegance of the Venetian architecture which lines Fiscardo's horseshoe harbour, have created a magical setting that is one of Kefalonias highlights.Traditionnal 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 them are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo.Fiscardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective.The lights, the old buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants all combine to provide a magical Mediterranean atmosphere.Of all the villages of Kefalonia, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening.
Other Activities: Sailing, diving (PADI club), motor boat for rent
Year Purchased: 2001
About: I have run a successful restaurant business in Fiscardo from the early 90. Looking for the perfect lot to build this house took me a long time. I finally found it and finish to build the house in the 2001. After selling my small business, I took a rest and spent long amazing summer with family and friends in this exceptional setting. I decided to rent the villa in 2008. Success was immediate. Guest followed in love with my house and half of the guest are now returning faithful guest
I still enjoy my place in autumn and early spring.
I live now at 5 km from the villa, at East side, I have my little speed boat, my quality of life is exceptional in this very special Fiscardo area, but to tell you the true, I miss my summer sunset in Alto Mare.
