The Old Farmhouse of Bourisis

Kefalonia

Traditional farmhouse close to Fiskardo in idyllic surroundings and walking distance to Fiskardo

The Old Farmhouse of Bourisis is situated in an idyllic position nestled into a valley close to the fishing village of Fiskardo. This large farmhouse was once an imposing home within the village and many of its original features have been beautifully restored such as the walled garden, old wine press and bread oven.

The main front entrance is on the upper level of the house where there is a very spacious and airy living room with very comfortable furnishings. There are three bedrooms on this level: A double bedroom with en-suite bathroom; a twin bedroom with doors leading to the garden; and a double bedroom with king-size bed featuring exposed wooden beams and a lovely balcony. These two bedrooms share a large family bathroom. Stairs lead up to the attic 'sofita' level where there is a twin bedroom set under the eaves which is suitable for children due to the low height ceiling. From the front door, there is a covered verandah with walled seating with a view right across the valley to the old church. 

A staircase leads to the ground floor level where there is a country kitchen which is well equipped including Nespresso machine, as well as a separate dining room, a guest WC and utility room. 

The property has air-conditioning in all three bedrooms, the sofita (attic) bedroom, and the living area on the ground floor. The villa has WIFI, DVD and TV.

The farmhouse sits perfectly within its rural surroundings and has a surprising amount of outside space so that children can play happily and adults can find a peaceful area of the garden to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the setting. From the kitchen, a sweet little door leads out to a lovely walled garden planted with fruit trees with outdoor dining area. Wide stone steps with a railing lead up to the pool area where there is also a small private pool (7.5m x 3m) with plenty of sun loungers and a lovely view to the church. 

The property is situated in the hamlet of Phsilithria which sits above the fishing village of Fiskardo. A 15 min walk through the countryside brings you to the traditional village of Antipata with its café, taverna and village shop. In the other direction, a 20 min walk downhill along an old mule path through the pine trees brings to you to Fiskardo itself with its array of restaurants, cafes and shops along the harbour front. Within a 25 min walk is a very pretty little beach close to Foki Bay. In fact the farmhouse is in a perfect spot for walkers and hikers to enjoy many of the mapped walks of the area. Some of the most idyllic beaches of the island are within a 10 min drive including Dafnoudi, Alaties with its excellent beach bar/restaurant and Aghios Jerousalim with the also excellent Odysseas’s taverna.

This property is a rare find - an individual and unique property in authentically Greek surroundings. The owners have told their story of how Bourisis was refurbished and the history surrounding this incredibly charming property. Please click below.

Reviews

Keen Family, August 2018

We had a marvellous time in the villa thank you- it was absolutely beautiful, the fixtures and fittings and decor inside and out were all of such a high standard, and so clean, it was absolutely super. Such a fantastic location too, being so private but able to walk to Antipata or Fiskardo was just perfect for us.

Doerr Family, August 2018

We have just returned from our two weeks on Kefalonia and have had the most wonderful holiday - thank you! Once again, thank you for helping to organise our two villa trip to Kefalonia - we will definitely be returning to this gorgeous island! 

 Phillips Family, June 2018

We loved our stay in the farmhouse at Bourisis from the 18th to the 28th June, everything was perfect the villa was truly lovely and there was everything there we needed,thank you so much.

Turnbull Family, June 2018

We had a lovely holiday at the Villa. It’s so pretty and very well equipped. All the staff we met were really helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend your company to others. I just wish we had longer in Kefalonia so we will have to come back.
