View Gallery
 

The Vineyard is a stone walled property with stunning views over the islands of Ithaka, Lefkada, Meganissi and the mountains of the Mainland Greece. It sits just above an old vineyard in a peaceful position on the hillside directly above the fishing town of Fiskardo. 

The house is all on one level with a small open plan living/dining/kitchen area. The living area has comfortable furnishings and is stylishly decorated. The kitchen is small but equipped with large fridge/freezer, full-size oven and dishwasher. Please note the preparation space for meals is limited so it's suitable for breakfasts, making snacks or the odd meal when not going to a taverna. There is also a small indoor dining table. French windows open onto one of the best features of the property which is a wonderful, large terrace running the length of the villa where there is a very spacious outdoor dining area with table for six, shaded by an umbrella and featuring a barbecue. In the centre of the terrace is a great outdoor shaded living area from which you have the most sublime view over Fiskardo Bay and surrounding islands. 

The master bedroom has a king-size double bed with en-suite bathroom with bath-tub and hand-held shower. French windows open onto the terrace. The 2nd bedroom can either be made up with king-size double bed or twin beds that can be separated. This bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom with spacious shower unit. This bedroom also has French Windows opening onto the terrace. There is also a very small single bedroom off the bathroom that can be used if guests need a little extra space. 

From the terrace, a pathway leads to a small private swimming pool (7m x 3m) with sun loungers and an umbrella. From the swimming pool terrace, you can enjoy wonderful views over the bay.

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 can also work very well for a family of up to four. The villa has been priced as a 'budget-friendly' villa due to the small size of the kitchen, and its proximity to the next villa (detached). At all times guests' privacy is respected - the neighbouring villa is not rented but is occupied by the delightful owner 'Marilena' who many of our guests mention very positively in their comments, please see below.

Reviews

Anthony M. arrived 10th September 2022 

We had a wonderful visit to Kefalonia thank you and Marilena looked after us superbly at The Vineyard. The villa was immaculate with some kind touches and nothing was too much trouble.

David B. arrived 27th August 2022 

We loved Villa Vineyard.

Angela E. arrived 13th August 2022 

We had a very nice time at the Villa and the location was excellent. Marilena made us very welcome and during our stay was super helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. Cleaning and laundry was very much appreciated. Rather than a welcome pack of food - Marilena treated us to a local meal - which was a very nice touch. The outside seating areas were nice with fantastic views over Fiskardo bay.

Silvana A. arrived 30th July 2022 

Many thanks for a lovely holiday which already feels like too distant a memory!

Sarah A. arrived 9th July 2022 

It was a great holiday and Marilena was exceptionally helpful and welcoming. We hope we can return next year.

J Bulkley arrived 28th June 2022 

As Shakespeare said All is well that ends well. Thanks to Bournemouth airport, yourselves and the lovely Marilena! 

Michael F. arrived 14th May 2022 

Just to say that we are very relaxed here and thoroughly enjoying the weather and views from the terrace. Marielena has been kindness personified. What a marvellous person to have here to field our questions and needs. 

Jayne B. arrived 1st Sept 2019 

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Marilena 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.

Sarah H. arrived 25th Aug 2019 

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 lovely. 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.

David G. arrived 21th July 2019 

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.

Jillian B. arrived 25th June 2019 

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!

Kenneth R. arrived 18th June 2019 

We had a fantastic time and we really loved the villa. Marelina the owner could not have been nicer.

Gavin H. arrived 31st May 2019 

Overall, we had a great holiday - and enjoyed our time at the villa and touring around the island. We would like to thank the owner for her hospitality and warm welcome - and also send our added thanks to the cleaner for looking after us so well. They were all delightful people.

Hannah C. arrived 15th July 2013 

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.
