The Olive Press

Kefalonia

Tranquillity and nature abound with this beautifully renovated olive press featuring its own private pool, colourful gardens and stunning views across the Bay of Fiskardo to the island of Ithaka beyond.

Beautifully renovated olive press comprising a main house and guest house linked by a contemporary glass walkway, with its own private swimming pool and surrounded by gardens as well as cypress and pine forests.

The property has wonderful views to the island of Ithaka and is a short drive from the fishing village of Fiskardo

The Olive Press is an imaginatively renovated stone property located in a quiet hamlet just 2kms from Fiskardo. Cooled by the surrounding cypress and pine forests with the sea glistening in the distance, this is the perfect tranquil spot to begin your holidays.

The original building dates back to Venetian times comprising a main house with an artistically designed contemporary glass walkway that connects it to a new guest wing known as The Honeypot.

The main entrance to the house is on the 2nd level where there is a very large open-plan space with living, dining and kitchen areas. A stunning feature is the wonderful vaulted ceiling with oak floors throughout. The living room has very large, comfortable sofas, a log-burning stove and library with music centre. The kitchen is very stylish with Italian custom-made units in cream and deep purple and is particularly well equipped for even the most serious of cooks. Included are large fridge/freezer, oven and ceramic hob, microwave and dishwasher as well as many additions such as electric ice and ice-cream makers, coffee bean grinder and percolators. The dining area seating 8 is spacious and a lovely area for friends to gather whilst the cooks are in action! French windows lead to the outside dining area, pool and garden, and a second set of French windows lead to a very pretty balcony with panoramic views across the bay to the island of Ithaka.

From the living area, oak stairs lead up to a spacious mezzanine level where there are two single beds, a living area and an en-suite bathroom. Opaque glass panels and a wooden screen give privacy to guests using this bedroom.

Adjoining the living area is an office/hallway with internet access and plenty of storage space.

Downstairs are two double bedrooms each with its own en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and separate dressing room with French windows leading to a small, private garden with outdoor seating. The second double bedroom also has a king-size bed with French windows leading to a patio overlooking the sea and island of Ithaka.

The contemporary designed glass walkway leads from the ground floor level to the new wing of the property – the ‘Honeypot’. This is a self-contained studio apartment with 2 single beds, a galley kitchen and a separate bathroom with bath and shower. A useful feature is an intercom connecting the ‘Honeypot’ with the living area of the house. The ‘Honeypot’ has its own private terrace with great views over to the island of Ithaka.

The property has WIFI, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, TV and DVD in the three main bedrooms as well as a large library of DVDs.

From the living area of the main house you step out onto a spacious deck which leads to the lovely swimming pool (42sqm) and outdoor dining area with sun sail shades. There is a large barbecue area and outdoor pizza oven. Around the swimming pool are comfortable loungers and there are various patios including an outdoor living area with sofas and chairs under the shade of a Greek style pagoda. The garden is colourfully planted with flowers, citrus and fruit trees and many lavender bushes and other fragrant herbs. The surrounding pine and cypress forest adds coolness on long, hot summer days.

The Olive Press is located in one of the most sought-after areas of the island approx. 2kms from the picturesque fishing village of Fiskardo with its array of waterfront restaurants, cafes and shops. There are many beautiful beaches to explore in this area just a few minutes away by car, and boats can also be hired from Fiskardo

Tranquility and nature abound with this beautifully renovated olive press featuring its own private pool, colourful gardens and stunning views across the Bay of Fiskardo to the island of Ithaka. The property comprises a main house sleeping 6 guests with a separate self-contained wing sleeping 2 guests. The property is situated in one of the most sought after areas of Kefalonia close to the very pretty fishing village of Fiskardo

Hi Vickie
 
Thanks so much we had a wonderful stay!
 
Please can you let me know if you can recommend any other villas for next year for us that are of a similar size and quality as the olive press?
 
Many thanks
Petrie

Alison Chadwick arrived 26/07/2014
 
Thanks Vickie, 
 
 1) we thought the Olive Press was lovely, possibly better than the photos on the website. 
 
 2) great service from yourselves before we went and from the team on the island. 
 
 3) the house was extremely clean and well equipped, absolutely brilliant in that respect. Air conditioning was fab. 
 
all in all, really impressed with the property and will put a glowing review on trip advisor soon.

We stayed at the olive press in Sept with my husband and eldest daughter and family it was absolutely gorgeous. 
We had a fantastic time the views are breath taking and the villa was just "Wow" absolutely stunning with quirky aspects,
everything is top notch and the owners have thought of everything to give you a first class holiday even down to a lovely welcome hamper on arrival.
We certainly recommend this villa for an amazing holiday.

Morning Vickie
 
Thank you for your email.
 
We all had a lovely holiday and hope to visit Greece again.
 
 
 
Hi Marie - Louise
 
Well we arrived home safe and sound around 8pm Saturday evening. What a fantastic time we had. The villa is absolutely lovely and in a beautiful spot.
 
Thank you for your help over the last 7 months without you we would not have had such a wonderful time. The shopping was delivered which proved to be a god send after such a long journey. Hire vehicle arrived Saturday that was a bonus.
 
We all have the holiday blues :(
 
Thank you again
Regards
Gill and Mick Amos

Hello Vickie, we had a fabulous time in your villa. 
 
The facilities were superb and we definitely wished we had stayed longer!
 
If we come again soon we will be looking to book your villas again although there would probably be just two of us so would need something smaller.
 
many thanks

Hi Vicky, thanks we had a great time in kefalonia and the villa was lovely. Would definitely come back, slightly put off by the wasps but maybe this was an unusual year . 
 
Thank you for all your help, before and while we were in Greece
 
Best wishes Anna
