We did thoroughly enjoy our time at Scirocco. The property was excellent with all the items provided that we needed. The views were fantastic. Marilena was very welcoming and generous. Nothing was too much trouble for her to make our stay excellent. Including accommodating our 00:15 Sunday late arrival. Our dealing with PGV has been great too. We would definitely have you at the top of our list of suppliers when we venture to Greece again.
Daniel W. arrived 24th July 2022
We had the best holiday, thank you, and Villa Scirocco was simply beautiful. Everything about the holiday and the villa was great and Marilena was so helpful and friendly. We will be recommending your company and the villa to friends and family and I have no doubt we'll go back.
Androulla W. arrived 17th July 2022
We had an amazing time and Marilena was the perfect host. The house and the views are to die for and I'm sure we will return sometime in the future. Alati beach restaurant was one of the highlights of our holiday, thank you for the recommendation.

Space, privacy, large infinity pool, views, views and more views are the key features of Villa Scirocco. This was our third, two-week, mid-summerstay at this villa during the past eight years – and it will definitely not be our last. As you approach the Katsarata road sign, just up from Matsoukata, with beautiful views across to Ithaca on your right, you take a sharp left between two houses/villas, up a steep, narrow, concreted drive through pine trees, to the electric gate of Casa Vento. Past the other three villas on your right, up to the much needed car port alongside the upper Villa Scirocco. This Tuscan-style large villa is very imposing, sitting as it does almost on the top of a hill - wonderfully private, witha pine forest on two sides. You will be immediately struck by what must surely be the best location in Kefalonia for views eastwards across theIonian Sea. The next thing which strikes you is the size of the property: a large, wide, flat, rectangular paved patio, with a large olive tree offering much needed shade at one end, and two large pine trees offering more shade at the other end of the patio, by an outdoor kitchen area. Even after three stays, I never tire of the uninterrupted views across the infinity pool to Ithaca and Lefkada. Also a great vantage point forwatching the entrances to Fiskardo Bay and Foki Bay, and the many yachts, superyachts and ferries. As for the infinity pool, surely the largest at any two bedroomed villa on Kefalonia? I am still trying to make a goodenough dive to reach the far end of the pool! Everywhere you turn there are patio chairs, tables and sun loungers – enough to seat a dozen or more people. As for the villa interior: downstairs is the smaller, second bedroom, with French doors on to its own small patio seating area. Nextdoor is a shower room. The large L shaped lounge/diner/kitchen has two sets of French doors – perfect for framing photographs of the views. The kitchen has everything you need: small dishwasher, large fridge freezer, fan oven, microwave, coffee machine, etc. Up the wide, sweeping staircase to themaster bedroom – with its balcony with stunning views across to Ithaca. An absolute highlight of this villa is sitting on that balcony, watching thesun rise over Ithaca straight ahead of you, whilst the Cicadas in the pineforest start their day… Off to one side of the master bedroom is a bathroomwith a shower and large bath, whilst off the other side is a dressing roommwith dozens of drawers, hanging rails and a safe. The bedrooms are air conditioned. The master bedroom has a TV with Netflix, etc. The beds are perfectly comfortable, and the bed linen and towels are changed every few days. One of the best features of this villa is excellent wi-fi indoors and outdoors. In terms of location, you will need to drive or taxi anywhere but Magganos, Foki and Fiskardo are just a five or ten minute drive away. All in all, this really is the perfect villa for a peaceful retreat, amazing pool and surely the best views on Kefalonia.
Matthew A. arrived 5th June 2022
We absolutely loved the villa and had an amazing time. Marilena was fantastic and her recommendations were exceptional. The view from the pool area was out of this world.
James W. arrived 29th May 2022
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Scirocco and Marilena was a superb hostess. Thank you for a very stress free holiday on the beautiful island of Kefalonia.

Marilena was lovely and she looked after us very well. We had a great time .. KFL up in the Fiskardo area was quite rugged and beautiful with views to die for.
Francesca C. arrived 26th May 2019
Thank you very much for your email and for all your assistance. Everything was great and it was a pleasure to meet our host. She was really very friendly and made things easy for us. I do hope to go to Greece again in the future and for sure I will get in touch with you.

We had a fabulous time in Villa Sciroco - our host was the absolute best, we cannot praise her highly enough and the villa is stunning, we will be back for another visit.
Jeremy D. arrived 17th July 2016
On behalf of Karen and I, I must thank you for our best holiday ever! The only downside? Leaving last Sunday! We enjoyed this second holiday at Villa Scirocco even more than our first, in August 2015. It's always risky returning to somewhere one loved so much the first time, but this second holiday was even more wonderful. As with last time, the USPs for Villa Scirocco for me are (in some vague order of preference..): The location / breathtaking view; The large infinity pool; Sunrises especially viewed from the wonderful bedroom balcony; Home from home - this is unlike any other holiday villa as it is clearly someones home. I noticed even more this time the care which has clearly gone in to designing the Villa, and furnishing it, the pictures, etc.; Ajad, Mira and Raffa such a lovely family and, as you must have heard many times, Ajad cannot do enough, works so hard, keeps the patio and pool clean in spite of the wind, trees, flowers - and magically cleans inside the villa, every day, without one ever noticing he s there. Bed made every day. Sheets and towels changed every few days. Sheer luxury; Patio sun all day - it is a significant bonus for Villa Scirocco, over probably any other villa, that one can get sun all day long at various places on the large patio. Car port - great to shade the car all day; Furniture - how much patio furniture can one Villa have! Bedroom - with the Air con, En suite & dressing rooms. Extra shower room. The nearby Magganos store. Fiskardo not far. Foki Beach. We so love the Kefalonians, the food, the wine, the beer, the sea, the beaches. We are quite lazy - we re not sailors or divers but we did at least venture beyond Fiskardo this year: to Assos - twice. We also went out with Fabio and Rob of Ionian Adventures (used to be Jamie). An amazing day out learning all about the Ionian Sea and its life. We highly recommend that Euro 65 day trip to anyone. We also had some wonderful early morning swims down at Foki Beach this year - before the crowds arrived. As with last year, my favourite outing was to Le Passage in Fiskardo. For brunch - Greek coffee & Strapatsada or cocktails before eating elsewhere in the evening. We have become firm friends with the staff. We also tried Theodora s for cocktails. There is a lovely view from the balcony but, for us, Le Passage easily has the edge in terms of the friendly staff and the delicious cocktails. Karen s new favourite place, found this year (how did we miss it last year??) for the sunsets, mainly - is the Ibiza-like funky Acqua Bar at Alaties beach. We went twice. The one place in or near Fiskardo you really do have to book! Fabulous cocktails Negrosky and Margarita - meze, pasta with swordfish. Restaurants? Excellent meals out again this year, in Fiskardo, Assos and nearby. In our order of preference (very hard to do!), they were: 1. Odysseus Taverna - twice: Belly pork & Lemon chicken. Meatballs & goat; 2. Elli's: Lamb Kleftiko; 3. Acqua Bar - twice - pasta; 4. Tassia's: Spaghetti with shell fish; Lamb casserole; 5. Assos Restaurant: Kefalonian meat pie; 6. Assos Platanos - lunch: sausage & giant beans; 7. Ajad's curry at the villa; 8. Foki beach Taverna - twice: Sea bream & chips; (lunch) omelette; 9. Iridia's: sea bass & sea bream. We hired a Toyota Auris from Kostas again, thanks for arranging that! Great car, great value. I left my sunglasses in the car and, without me even asking, they have posted them to me! Such lovely people. All in all, a totally wonderful holiday. Thank you.
Julie L. arrived 25th June 2016
I would like to say that our stay at scirocco was absolutely amazing,so beautiful. Everything about our holiday was just perfect, and we will be using your company again for sure.
Jeremy D. arrived 11th August 2015
Villa Scirocco is amazing. The views are simply stunning ( - even in this morning's rain! :-) ). Everything is perfect. We have never stayed anywhere so complete with every little item provided. The welcome pack of food (wine, bread, water, etc etc) was a god send. We didn't mean to on our first evening here but we did eat at Tassia last night. (Thank you for the tip!) Lamb casserole! MMMM!! We will be going back (for Karen's birthday next Tuesday). We plan to eat out alternative evenings. We slept SO well on our first night - both of us nearly 12 hours..!? Then down to the famous supermarket in Magganos today. Simply amazing. BBQ here this evening - after Karen makes cocktails to watch the sun setting. I must make a special mention of Ajad. He is so kind, helpful, friendly, keen to please, polite, obtrusive. A key USP of Villa Scirocco, in my opinion. Oh & we must thank you for the Route 1 Directions. Another god send. Though the new 'white' road is now black.:-) What an adventure Route 1 was (I'm more used to the M3 or M40!).
Belated thanks again for our wonderful, perfect, best ever holiday at Villa Scirocco in Kefalonia! Firstly, I wanted to thank you for guiding us to rent what turned out to be the perfect villa (for Karen and I), in the perfect location. We only married in May 2013 (both 2nd Time Arounders) and we commented last week: If only we'd found Villa Scirocco for our honeymoon. The villa is simply perfect in terms of it has everything included, the views, the infinity pool, the hammock, shade, space and a car port! We must once again pay our highest compliments to Azad, the site housekeeper. He is SO patient, caring, diligent, unobtrusive, helpful, knowledgeable. He made our bed every day (which we weren't expecting) - but we still can't work out how he managed to do so without us even noticing. He supplied the two bottles of Prosecco I d requested thank you. He also taxi-d us down in to Fiscardo one evening when I simply asked him to recommend a local taxi. All in all the Villa + Azad makes for a stress-free, carefree holiday. We fell totally in love with the green and beautiful northern tip of Kefalonia the people the views the food the restaurants.. tavernas.. bars.. and, the well-kept secret: Robola wine! Thank you for recommending Tassia and Cave Verde in Fiscardo. We ate at Tassia twice and drank in Cave Verde most evenings! We also had a lovely meal at Elli's, right on the beach. We also ate at couple of other restaurants I can t remember the names of, but we failed to get as far as The Captains Table or Nicholas Taverna, which were both recommended to us. Our favourite place and time, though, became brunch at Le Passage (but NB: before the Greek cruise ships and ferries offloaded their hordes for a quick lunch!). I became addicted to Le Passage s medium strength Greek Coffee and Strapatsada (scrambled eggs with cheese, tomato and peppers). Of course, the greengrocers in Maganos is amazing and then we found Ijursalem ( Jerusalem ) beach and Odysseus Taverna. I actually think we had the best food of all at Odysseus but that s being unfair to all the restaurants in Fiscardo. One tip for other Newbies: be very, very patient when you ask for the bill at the end of an evening meal. Once I got used to it, it was fine. Intentionally, we did not travel far and we did not go out on the water. Maybe next time....
Kate G. arrived 25th July 2015
I just wanted to let you know what an amazing holiday my partner Nick and I had in Villa Scirocco. The villa was so beautiful and well equipped. We were both completely enchanted by the gorgeous furnishings and the way it was decorated inside and out. The attention to detail was amazing. The pool and view were of course breath-taking but there was a truly magical feeling to the villa. Ajad was wonderful and catered to our every need. You and Vickie were a pleasure to deal with and we felt very well looked after by you. Thank you so so much for organising this for us, we will definatly be back to Pretty Greek Villas to book our future dream holidays.
John D. arrived 25th June 2015
In general we had a delightful holiday at the villa Scirocco. We very much liked the place and the view was the best we have ever had in all our stays in Greek islands. The silence on most days was wonderful. The location of the property was good and the drive to Fiscardo was easy and quick enough. The outside/pool area was very, very good with an excellent array of chairs, tables, covered areas and sun umbrellas. Loungers and cushions were very good. Pool was also excellent, enhancing the view. The interior of the house was well appointed. A delightful house. The bedroom was a good size and the balcony made it even better. In general, excellent.
Carol G. arrived 23rd May 2015
SCIROCCO - We had a great time, three weeks away is a real rest. Ajad was there in his usual welcoming manner - a real treasure. WELCOME PACK - we prearranged our shopping, Ajad purchased and it was put away for us. On this particular occasion the owner paid for it as a way of saying thank you, which was appreciated. Also the basics are all here, lovely coffee, spices and condiments, balsamic and olive oil, everything in fact! VIEWS of the sea - Outstanding and takes my breath away every time. KITCHEN - Everything one needs to cook great meals, I love cooking so in my element, lovely dishes and bowls, and plenty of crockery and knives and forks etc. BATHROOM lovely deep bath. LOCATION - excellent.
Alan H. arrived 22th June 2014
We had a lovely holiday and very much enjoyed Villa Scirocco.

Just wanted to say - we have loved our vacation at villa Scirocco, and hope we can return in near future. The accommodation was absolutely amazing, and we enjoyed the support we got from the local caretaker and his wife. They are both fantastically dedicated and we got on extremely well with them. Also we've been really impressed by the very professional and experienced team at Pretty Greek Villas. Thank you so much for making this holiday possible.
Mariusz B. arrived 1st June 2013
Our holidays at Scirocco was wonderful. The house is really fantastic, the pool is fabulous and the view across the sea and islands are unforgettable. Of course friendly staff is also very important and giving additional charm to this place. We were travelling all over Kefalonia, in our opinion the most wonderful and less comercialized of Ionian Islands.
Catherine B. arrived 14th August 2012
