Our Villa Fengaraki is a fabulous villa located in the natural Livadi plane only a short stroll from the unspoilt Livadi bay, located in an ideal position for touring Kefalonian island. We are less than 10 minutes drive from the bustling traditional town of Lixouri, where you will find a large selection of restaurants and shops. Down at the harbour every morning, for those fish lovers you can purchase fresh catches from the local fishermen, great for an evening BBQ. When your feeling lazy the local taverna Paliki is only a couple of minutes stroll away from the villa. The grounds of the property are walled with private parking and the whole villa is equiped with broadband Wifi and satellite T.V. The covered veranda offers shade during the hot summer days and the large patio area is ideal for outdoor cooking on the brick built barbecue. The upper patio is great for those who adore basking in the sun, as this is a sun trap almost all day. The pool is kept crystal clear and has a tiled step for easy access. There is also a power jet seating area where you can relax and take in the amazing sea views. The whole property overlooks the Paliki bay and on towards some of the highest mountains on Kefalonia. There is a swing set and trampoline for entertaining the little ones. It's a great family villa. The bay of Livadi is a natural plane which attracts many varieties of birds and wildlife (great for birdwatchers and naturalists). The location of Villa Fengaraki is ideal for visiting many of the areas of Kefalonia island such as Fiscardo, Assos, Agia Efimia and Sami with the caves and lake. The Paliki peninsular is a very traditional area of Kefalonia and is ideal for those looking to capture the old Greek style. You may even be able to still catch a glimpse of the old gentleman riding his donkey into town. In the area there is the fabulous beach of Petani with it's small coves ideal for snorkling, as is the Atheras bay just up the road. Xi beach is perfect for small children with particularly shallow waters and inflatable water trampolines and games. At Vatsa beach you can soak up the atmosphere of Spiros traditional taverna which is located right on the beach and serves fantastic fish and meat dishes. For those easy days try out the four slide water park at Kounopetra to keep the family entertained. There are so many places to visit on this part of the island that you may not even get chance to explore further afield.

Why Frances Findlay chose Paliki
The property is in a great location and with fabulous sea and mountain views. The villa is close to a local taverna serving traditional food and drink, making it perfect when you don't want to travel far. We loved the brightness and airy feeling of the location.

Lovely villa with fabulous views
We were an extended family group of seven and wanted four bedrooms, a pool and WiFi. Villa Fengaraki did not disappoint, in fact it was larger than expected. The upstairs rooms were spacious and comfortable and although the downstairs one was smaller it was more than adequate.
The pool was great and the surrounding area comfortable with plenty of loungers. The lower balcony had a large table and a pair is sofas and was widely used especially by those not wanting to sit in the sun.
The view from here across the sound was fabulous and I'll miss eating my breakfast looking out at it.
Lixouri is an easy 10-15 minutes drive and has plenty of supermarkets and eateries. There is also a taverna 10 minutes walk away with very friendly owners and great food.
Xi, Organic and other beaches in this part of the island were 15-20 minutes away.
Overall if you're a larger group or all want your own space this villa is ideal and the view is hard to beat
Fabulous family holiday with stunning views
Directions to the villa is the best we have ever had led us straight to the villa without the need for sat nav. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated on arrival. The villa was very clean with stunning views which the photos do not do justice to. Great location for viewing the highlights of the island well worth parking in lixouix to catch the ferry. The restaurant at the end of the road wasnt open but there is a restaurant within walking distance just be careful of the busy road. Some of the mosiquito blinds could do with updating. We had to buy some additional tumblers for long drinks. The outside area and swimming pool were excellant and enjoyed by all. Xi beach was excellant for young children which is close to the villa. We are all looking forward to returning to kefalonia and prehaps this villa in the near future.
Amazing views and good location
We had a lovely time here! Everything was very easy to complete from booking the villa to accessing the directions were easy to follow to locate the villa, The villa is very clean and the linen was changed twice over our 12 day stay. You will need a car to get around. The xi beach is a lovely sandy beach not too far away. The restaurant down the road is very welcoming. There are numerous places to see we visited argostoli, the messini cave, skala to name a few! This is a beautiful island which has not been commercialised. The owner of the villa is very helpful when we had a few queries.
Wonderful holiday - again!
Returned for the third year running. Had a great family holiday again. All as we remembered it. Lovely clean villa and pool. Explored even more of the island this year. Had not visited Sami before. Enjoyed cocktails by the harbour. Visited our old favourites - potami beach, Assos, boat hire from Agia Effimia etc. Greeted warmly by tavernas in Lixouri who remembered us from previous years. Ate in the many tavernas in Lixouri and by ferry to Agostoli. You need a car to get around. Had some good days of relaxation around the pool. Villa and pool both regularly cleaned and Frances and Barry were very friendly and helpful as always. Hope to return again next year!
