'Nel Cielo' (in the sky) is the right name for this villa. It could be also 'Above the clouds'. It’s probably one of the most unique properties in Greece. The property is perched high up on the cliffs above Myrtos beach with magnificent views down the coast of Kefalonia to the village of Assos. A villa with the Wow! factor They say that the most important attribute of a house is its location and this villa has one of the best locations that we have ever seen. Hanging some 300 metres over one of Europe's famous beaches this villa offers some of the most breathtaking views that the island - and the whole of Greece - has to offer. This villa is not all about the views, however. It is about fine living. After all, to enjoy these views, great food, good wine and beauty all over must be there! The villa has been refurbished by its new owners to a marvelous elegant/cosy style.
The Interior : Walking through the gated entrance, the sense of privacy within the property is apparent. One is struck immediately by the uniqueness of the architectural design and interiors, from the contemporary lines of the building to the dark metallic paintwork combined with floor to ceiling glass and sliding windows to take in the breathtaking views. The main living area features a central fireplace surrounded by built-in divan sofas covered in ethnic style fabrics that soften the starkness of the charcoal grey, metallic paint work. To the right of the main living area is a TV/chill-out room which is divided from the living area by a large glass window The modern styled kitchen includes a traditional wood-fired oven as well as a sophisticated array of modern appliances suitable for a property of this distinction. The kitchen is a great place for cooks to entertain whilst guests enjoy each other’s company in the elegant dining area.

To the rear entrance of the property is a lovely guest house furnished similarly to the main house which contains a bedroom with single bed and en-suite bathroom facilities
The Exterior The outside of the property is equally impressive as the interior with the crowning feature being an altar-esque, infinity plunge pool seemingly offering the bathers up to the gods! From here one can relax above the clouds to one of the most awe-inspiring views in the Ionian Islands - 270 degree views uninterrupted over miles of coastline right out to the infinite horizion. Below the pool, a path leads through a profusion of indigenous herbs and plants along the ridge until three throne-like chairs are discovered and beyond, a stone ‘hideaway’ with a day-bed to relax in surrounded by the immensity of nature.

A taste of Saint Tropez, at the old time of Vadim and Bardot .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.

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. At night the village 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 Ionian Island, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening. The place to be, to see and be seen.
