Beautifully and artistically renovated cottage that is situated close to Fiskardo with its own private pool and views across Fiskardo bay

Secluded and surrounded by nature, the Wine-Growers Cottage exudes simplicity and charm. With a backdrop of the velvety green cypress forests and views right across Fiskardo bay to the island of Ithaka, the cottage is in an ideal location for guests to enjoy a peaceful holiday retreat yet close to the beach and to amenities.

The cottage has been beautifully renovated and the rhythm of its architecture reflects the gentle sunny slope on which it has stood for the last few hundred years. The ground floor is an L-shape with a lovely open plan kitchen still featuring the original wine-press from times gone by when the family would have pressed their grapes here in the kitchen. Both the kitchen and dining area are decorated in a sunny ochre-yellow which contrasts beautifully with the original 19th Century decorative floor tiles. A few steps lead up to an open living area with a cosy sofa piled with cushions and armchair set around the fireplace. From the windows set in the metre-thick stone walls, guests can enjoy the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside with the sea glistening below.

The same staircase leads down to a lower level where there is a very peaceful double bedroom with white-washed walls and soft, antique brick floor. This bedroom has French windows leading out to its own patio shaded by a vine-covered pergola.

On the ground floor to the left of the kitchen a corridor leads to a spacious bathroom with shower, marble basin and wonderful antique tiled floor that serves both bedrooms. Further along the corridor is the second double bedroom decorated in a soft apple green with exposed beams and French windows leading to the garden and pool terrace.

The property has a kitchen with full sized oven, fridge and dishwasher. There is air-conditioning, TV and DVD.. The cottage has WIFI but it is limited to social media and emails (no movies) since the central internet unit up in the village is quite far from the property. However, 4G works perfectly well so guests with a data package on their phone would be able to access a faster connection. There is an excellent housekeeper included twice per week who also does the guests' laundry once a week.  

The cottage is nestled in acres of woodland with a large garden that blends in naturally with the surrounding nature. In spring and autumn, the ground is carpeted in wild crocus and cyclamen. Lavender and aromatic plants tumble over the stone walls. Fruit trees and age-old olives as well as Mediterranean pine, birch and cypress trees provide a refreshing coolness on long hot summer days with just the sound of the birds singing or a goat bell tinkling gently in the sea-breeze.

The cottage has its own private pool, a lovely outdoor shaded dining area and comfortable loungers from which to sit and enjoy the wonderful view across the wine-dark sea to the island of Ithaka. Through the grounds, a little pathway leads to a track that takes you down to the seashore where there is a secluded beach and bay with crystal-clear water.

Although the property is very secluded and quiet, it is just a few minutes drive from the colourful fishing village of Fiskardo which is one of the prettiest on the island. Guests can choose from an array of waterfront restaurants or cafes, wander along the narrow streets that burst with blooms of bougainvillea, explore the boutique shops and watch the yachts and a caique fishing boats come and go. Boat hire is available locally and a wonderful day out is to take a boat and explore the many coves and bays that lie along this part of the coast as well as around the island of Ithaka opposite.

Wine-Growers Cottage is a little jewel that is becoming rarer to find now in Greece. It is an idyllic property for honeymooners and couples wanting to find total seclusion and privacy as well as for small families who love to have large grounds for the children to play with beach and village close by.

Secluded and peaceful, this very pretty 2 bedroom cottage with its own pool is surrounded by nature and is perfect for honeymooners, or a small family looking for a property with large grounds. A track leads through the land to a quiet bay and beach with crystal-clear water. Amenities are not far away - the picturesque fishing village of Fiskardo is just a few mins by car. Boats can also be hired locally.

John H. arrived 15th June 2024
Thank you, the property was gorgeous and we would certainly be interested in another villa in the same area next year.


Emily T. arrived 18th May 2024
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday and very special break at Wine Growers Cottage. We would definitely love to go back!

I have been very impressed with our experience with PGV - all very smooth and easy. We are looking forward to exploring other holidays in future.

Dennis H. arrived 17th Sept 2023
The stay was lovely and without fault. Ideal location and well appointed. The food items at the beginning of the week were lovely.The highlight was the quiet and the pool. 

Andy A. arrived 26th August 2023
We had a wonderful holiday and the two cottages were perfect. We will certainly be using Pretty Greek Villas again. 

Flora B. arrived 29th July 2023
We had a wonderful time, thank you.  It was extremely difficult to leave.  The general consensus is that we will be back next year, so no doubt you will be hearing from us.

Collette A. arrived 14th June 2023
Firstly, a huge thank you to you and everyone involved - we had an amazing trip and the villa was just wonderful, peaceful and quiet (except for the herd of goats that descended every evening, but it only added to the charm), beautiful scenery and amazing food. Suabe the gentleman who maintained the villa was very accommodating and helpful and was also a fantastic cook - so big thanks to him too.

Stephanie F. arrived 1st October 2022 

We had a fantastic time, thank you. The location was brilliant, the cottage was simply stunning, and we loved the goats tinkling by every evening! Thank you for having us and we hope to book with you again in the future.

Karen M. arrived 24th September 2022 

We had a lovely time at winegrowers. 

Julian W. arrived 27th August 2022 

Just wanted to get in touch to say how much we loved the stay we had at The Wine Growers Cottage. It was a lovely cottage and so peaceful as it was surrounded by the wood land. Yet also only a short drive to Fiscardo. We have stayed many times in Kefalonia and usually this has been in the south of the island but we wanted to try the north this time. Absolutely loved the many beaches nearby. The cottage itself was rugged yet had everything we needed and was furnished beautifully. We have used Pretty Greek Villas a few times now and will definitely book again at some point as we love the Island. A week was not long enough though.

Michelle S. arrived 20th August 2022 

It was a very special stay and cannot fault the property at all.

Juliet E. arrived 13th August 2022 

Thanks so much, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Rosemary W. arrived 23rd July 2022 

We had a wonderful week at Winegrowers, it is a really special villa in a great location. The little beach was a gem and we did a lot of snorkelling there.  The goats were a pleasant surprise and we enjoyed watching them and hearing them, even on the beach! The villa exceeded our expectations in so many ways for example the super comfy bed and the well appointed kitchen. The welcome pack was a nice surprise, thank you.  And collecting and dropping off the hire car was a smooth process. We were well looked after by Suabe, who offered to do laundry as well as regularly emptying the bins. I liked we could have had food cooked at the villa but didn’t go for it this visit, next time! We will definitely be back and once again thank you.

Matthew B. arrived 9th July 2022 

We had a great holiday thanks, the house keeper was brilliant.

Leanda J. arrived 25th June 2022 

Everything was just wonderful, thank you. I loved everything about our stay and the villa was beautiful. 

Mary Z. arrived 18th June 2022 

Just wanted to say thank you for a lovely week at the Wine Growers Cottage. The house was really clean and we had a lovely fruit delivery while there.

Stephen L. arrived 11th June 2022 

Many thanks we had a great time.

Sara M. arrived 20th May 2022 

It was amazing - beautiful villa in gorgeous location and we were amazingly well-looked after. This is our second holiday with you and I will definitely be booking again as your service has been amazing (especially your flexibility during the covid-era).

Jennifer C. arrived 28th April 2022 

We had a nice stay at the very peaceful and beautifully restored cottage. The great location and fantastic views helped us to relax and enjoy our holiday. The cottage was close to Fiskardo for shopping and eating options, there were several hikes close by, together with the opportunity to hire kayaks. The cottage caretaker was very kind, looked after the property well and cleaned daily, he also was a fantastic cook (well worth a night in!).

Rupert T. arrived 12 Sept 2021 

We had a great time and loved the cottage which couldn't be nicer. Suabe was also great and his biriyani was memorable! We definitely intend to return.

Alexandra C. arrived 21 August 2021

We had a fabulous stay. We loved the cottage and hope to return next year. What a lovely island :)

Kay B. arrived 4th October 2020 

We enjoyed our stay at Wine Growers Cottage very much thank you. This was our second villa holiday through Pretty Greek Villas to Fiscado in Kefalonia and the service that you provide has been excellent. The owner paid for our first night in a hotel as repairs to the villa had caused a power failure when we arrived. We felt that was a tremendously generous thing to do. With this villa the only irritation was the WiFi which required the owners to keep topping it up and for us to keep asking for this ...... Unlimited WiFi is expected nowadays and the younger generation in our family expect to be able to use You Tube and Netflix while on their holiday. When we arrived we expected Kefalonia to have been adversely impacted following the Cyclone and this was unfortunately the case. There was much damage to the forestry with many trees down, land slides affecting roads and most of the beaches in the North had been put out of action with Foki and Jerusalem beaches and their Tavernas devastated. This was sad to see, but the resilience of the Kefalonians to get up and running again was impressive. The end of season brought the inevitable closure of businesses leaving limited options for eating out in the evening, but with 3 or 4 local restaurants open and the supermarket, we did not starve! We are pleased that we went to have a great holiday and support the tourism economy. Only one travel blip on our return as Greek air traffic control strike caused a 5 hour delay at the airport on our return. We will travel with Pretty Greek Villas again.

Lara S. arrived 14th September 2020 

We are already missing the villa very much! Of course, we are very happy to share our feedback about our stay. Regarding the villa, it really was even more beautiful than we imagined, in an idyllic spot, well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. Please pass on our thanks to the owner for the generous welcome goodies left out for us - it really made our stay feel special. We have already recommended the villa to friends and family, it is spectacular.

June M. arrived 24th August 2020 

Thank you very much for your email.  We had a lovely holiday in Kefalonia and thank you so much for all your help before the trip: organising the car hire and boat trip in particular - both of which worked perfectly. The only slight niggle we had with the cottage was there was no washing machine which we misunderstood from the website.  However Marie Louise sorted out some cleaning for us so no big problem. The cottage was lovely.  Simply wonderful location and view.  Pool lovely and clean inside. Everything was very nice and we would have no hesitation in using you again.  We have already recommended you to someone else.

M. Herbert arrived 5th October 2019

The winegrowers setting was perfect. Secluded, unique, traditional just wonderful. So glad I found you guys.

K. Simpson arrived 5th May 2019 

The Wine Growers Cottage on Kefalonia was so ideal that we have booked another week in late September. Please don't change anything.

Su & Keith arrived 20th April 2018 

Sadly, we are back from our lovely stay in Greece! Despite the ferry strike, fully booked flights, demonstrations in Athens and having to spend extra time on the mainland - we had a simply wonderful time and loved it! It was so disappointing to arrive into Kyllini and discover that there was a ferry strike but our host at the Fragos Garden Studios was so hospitable, helpful and accommodating - Kostantinos made it all much less painful. He really couldn't do enough to help and make sure that we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend a stay at his dear little hotel to anyone! I must also mention that Vasillis was wonderful. He met us and drove us safely and well, even stopping for us to find an ATM so that we could draw money. Great guy. Then your help and concern for us was very reassuring and we want to thank you so much for that. Our unscheduled stay in Athens turned out well as we got to explore the Acropolis and the new museum on a beautiful spring day without the intense heat that often goes with that visit. The lads that met us at the airport in Kefalonia at 10pm with our (upgraded - thank you Katerina) car were so friendly and helpful but despite all their directions - and your written ones, we got horribly lost trying to find our way onto the right road. Partly this was because the English on the road signs either doesn't reflect at night or at times was scribbled out with graffiti ! However, we were helped and met by Freddie from the Wine Growers who personally escorted us to our cottage. We couldn't have done it without him! To find the fridge stocked with breakfast and beer and wine was above and beyond! What a delight that little stone-cottage is! In every sense of the word but summed up best perhaps by my husband who on waking the next morning and seeing that view said, "I think we've just found a little piece of heaven!". Thank you for your part in making our anniversary trip so special. You have probably gathered that we are owners of a Travel Agency - we specialize in customizing trips, mainly to Africa on photographic safaris - and we love to find little gems like this! I have sent folk to your website before and can with confidence say you run an excellent portfolio. We look forward to our next stay already (personally!) and to matching only our very special clients to one of your special properties should the opportunity arise!

Simon B. arrived 30th July 2016 

We had a lovely time thankyou and like all holidays it was all over too quickly and it's a pain being back at work !  The cottage is very nice and suited us perfectly, the whole development is very tastefully done. It certainly meets the criteria for being private and isolated, just what we wanted. Thank you for arranging the car hire and boat hire, it all went very smoothly. One comment that might be helpful is that probably three days boating is enough for a week, and that the boat hire company is more than happy to book it on separate days, it isn't really necessary to block book the whole week in advance.

Cressida H. arrived 14th May 2016 

Many thanks for your message. We had an absolutely wonderful time. It really was heavenly. We will definitely be calling on your expertise again! While the house was beautiful, Suabe fantastic and Freddie a really welcoming and generous host. We had a wonderful time and were particularly grateful to Freddie for allowing my sister to camp in the garden. Please do pass on our thanks. 

Sophie H. arrived 8th September 2015 

We had a lovely time in Wine Growers Cottage. It was beautifully decorated and quiet! A real jewel! We also had the visit of the owner, Ms Josephs, who gave us very good tips and suggestions. The housekeeper, Swab was great too, and his food is delicious and very generous!, highly recommended. Thanks again for all the assistance and we will definitely come back to your site for other holidays!

Matt S. arrived 1st September 2015 

Many thanks for your email - strangely, I had just emailed Pretty Greek Villas regarding the deposit, when your email arrived. We loved the Winegrower's Cottage and thought it was very peaceful and beautiful place.

Ann J. arrived 13th June 2015 

We had a really lovely time last week in glorious sunshine. The cottage was beautiful, just perfect for what we needed.

Katherine L. arrived 25th August 2015 

We did indeed have a gorgeous week at winegrowers! Absolutely adored the cottage and have been raving about to all I come into contact with so you might be getting a few extra enquiries from Wales!!! 

John R. arrived 24th May 2014 

We had a wonderful holiday thank you. Pretty Greek Villas service - 10 out 10 - Excellent, very friendly, good advice, passed on all our requests to the property owner. Villa location - 10 out 10 - Perfect, as described, secluded, private, peaceful. The little beach just down from the cottage was absolutely wonderful. Daily visit by the goat herd was a real treat. Fiscardo - 9 out 10 - Superb restaurants, very pretty, very friendly. We would definitely use Pretty Greek Villas again !!. Thank Anna and Marie-Louise for their help. 

Hannah K. arrived 17th May 2014 

Wine Growers was perfect - every single detail of the house was wonderful and Shuabe, the fantastic house keeper looked after any requests we had.  You have looked after us beautifully through every step and we very much look forward to enjoying holidays with Pretty Greek Villas for many years to come.

Karen B. arrived 28th June 2014 

Our experience with Pretty Greek Villas was nothing short of perfect - we received first class treatment all the way from our first enquiry last January to the end of our vacation. My husband and I were desperately in need of a break having worked hard and not had a vacation for 4 years so we needed a place to relax and unwind with no distractions and interruptions, we certainly found that, it was exactly what we needed. The cottage was idyllic, Suabe (apologies if that is incorrect spelling) was always there when needed and very unobtrusive, I have recommended you to so many people.  We love the Greek Islands and have only visited Kefalonia so far but now we have found a company who know the islands well and are so very helpful we may explore further next year with your recommendation.  You have achieved the perfect balance of being friendly but still professional in your dealings with clients Thank you so very much for 2 weeks of pure escapism and relaxation.

Francesca G. arrived 6th May 2014 

Thank you for your email - the Wine Grower's Cottage is charming, well kept, and a haven for anyone who wants peace and quiet to loll and read. We unfortunately had unseasonably chilly weather while we were there - it was warmer in England! -  so didn't swim, but the pool and the little beach looked very nice.

Douglas P. arrived 21st June 2014 

Thanks for your email. We had a wonderful time at Wine Grower's Cottage. It's a lovely spot, and just what we were looking for. We had a delicious meal cooked by the housekeeper Schwabe, who is fantastic.  I'm sure we'll be returning!
