Spectacular views over the Ionian Archipelago
Spectacular views over the Ionian Archipelago
The Vineyard is a stone walled property with stunning views over the Ionian Archipelago. The islands of Ithaka, Lefkada, Meganissi and the mountains of the Mainland Greece in the distance are clearly visible. The house sits just above an age-old vineyard in a peaceful position on a hillside directly above the fishing town of Fiskardo.
The house is all on one level with an open plan living/dining/kitchen area. The living area has very comfortable sofas and is stylishly decorated. The kitchen is small but very well equipped and there is an indoor dining area. French windows open onto a large terrace just above the vineyard which has fabulous views across Fiskardo Bay with a wonderful outdoor dining area and outdoor living area shaded by the pergola.
The master bedroom has a king-size double bed with en-suite bathroom. The 2nd bedroom can either be made up with king-size double bed or twin beds that can be separated. The 3rd bedroom is a small children's room with single bed. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms share a bathroom with bath and shower. Both double bedrooms have French windows leading out onto the large terrace and have views over the bay.
There are steps leading from the terrace through this lovely vineyard where all the old stone walls have been retained. There is also a huge old fig tree on this side of the terrace which is in a wonderful spot to curl up in the shade and immerse yourself in the stunning view. There is also a barbecue, outdoor dining area and comfortable lounge chairs for relaxing. A small pathway leads to the central courtyard where the private swimming pool is situated also with stunning views over the bay. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool as well as umbrellas.
The property has air-conditioning, Satellite TV, DVD, fast WIFI and twice weekly maid service.
The Vineyard is well situated being only a short drive from the picturesque fishing harbour of Fiskardo with its excellent tavernas, shops, restaurants and cafe bars. Foki Bay with its idyllic beach and excellent taverna is a few mins away by car. For guests who enjoy hiking in the cooler months, there is an old mule path down to Foki bay through the cypress forest. The village of Magganos is about a 5 min drive away with various tavernas and excellent grocery shop for fresh produce. Boats can be hired in Fiskardo and guests can enjoy the many pristine bays and coves around this northern part of the island as well as those on Ithaka opposite.
This villa is a perfect size for a couple looking for a quiet, private and special location. It is also an ideal solution for small families of 4-5 since everything is easy and on hand.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Maria Eleanor at the Vineyard.
What a wonderful host she is and so friendly and kind. The Vineyard is a beautiful place to stay, so peaceful with the most fantastic views. We shall always remember our time there and hopefully return one day. We highly recommend it.
We all wanted to say a big thanks to you for being so very kind to us
and making our stay so memorable.
We absolutely loved the villa it was so peaceful and such beautiful
views that we could have just sat around there for the whole holiday.
Thank you so much for treating us to that lovely meal on arrival and
also the fantastic evening on our last night - we shall always remember them.
With love, Jayne, Ken, Topsy and Chris.

Marilena couldn't have been nicer or more helpful although
there were a few things beyond her control!
The view is totally spectacular and we thoroughly enjoyed swimming
with such an incredible backdrop. The wall facing the view with shutters is also
We had a fabulous week in Cephalonia and
loved Fiscardo. I am a travel writer and writing a piece on Cephalonia for families so it was a great base to explore the local area. We will
definitely be back.

We had a wonderful holiday staying at the Vineyard Villa, our host Marilena was so welcoming, we couldn't, have wished for more!
I would have no hesitation to use Pretty Greek Villas in the future
and have already recommended you to several friends.

We had the most fabulous stay at he Vineyard - perfect. Marilena was so welcoming and adorable and made it all easy. The villa was just right for us and with a view to die for. We had one of our best holidays, so many thanks for your efficiency, and we would certainly book with you again, and would probably like to return to the Vineyard next June!
Many thanks again,

I just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had staying at the small vineyard. The villa is wonderful, and so peaceful and tranquil.
Ajad looked after us so well - nothing was too much trouble, and we really appreciated the beautiful cake for our wedding anniversary.
It was just superb. I would highly recommend it and hope to visit again.
