Property description

Katy’s apartment is the upper floor of a 2-storey building close to the sea, two bays south and just a 10 minute walk from Fiscardo waterfront. From the front balcony you can hear the sea lapping on to the bathing rocks below. The apartment is bordered by a terraced garden of grapevine, fig, almond and citrus trees. A wide and shaded balcony has views across the bay to the Venetian lighthouse and to the island of Ithaca, whose cliffs turn pink as the sun sets. A rear terrace, with a shaded barbecue and dining area, also looks out across the sea towards ithaca. A spacious open-plan kitchen and dining area leads to a sitting area with french windows opening out on to a covered sea-facing balcony. A twin bedroom also opens out on to the balcony. A large bathroom has a shower. The nearest beach is a two minute walk and bathing rocks are just a few metres away. Fiscardo waterfront, with its many shops, tavernas and cafe bars, is a stroll of 10 minutes above the sea.

Important notes on accommodation

Accommodation within easy walking distance of Fiscardo waterfront is hard to find. Katy's Apartment offers a more private and individual place to stay for couples wanting to be close to the sea and just a 10 minute walk to the buzzy waterfront of Fiscardo.
From the front balcony one has one of the best positions to follow the progress of arriving and departing yachts and fishing boats.
The lower floor apartment is also available to rent and this has its own entrance and balcony.

About the area

Coast/Beach
30 seconds walk to flat bathing rocks. 2 minute walk to beach (shingle) with olive trees for shade. 15 minute walk to Foki beach (shingle) with olive trees for shade and a beach taverna.

How to get there
Argostoli airport is 40 kilometres away. Easyjet now flies from London Gatwick to Argostoli and there are also charter flights.
There are ferries to and from Ithaca and Lefkas (Fiscardo has a small ferry port) so it's possible to arrange a stay on all 3 islands.
Car hire not essential.
We can help to arrange transfers from airport to the Apartment.

Distances
Fiscardo waterfront is 10 minutes' walk.
Myrtos Beach (featured in Captain Corelli's Mandolin - the film) is a drive of 30 minutes.
There are daily ferries from Fiscardo to Ithaca and Lefkas.

Further Details
The colourful port of Fiscardo, on the north east tip of the island, boasts a stunning waterfront of tall Venetian houses and looks out to the island of Ithaca. Beaches are shingle but less crowded than in the south and are fringed by olive, pine and cypress to give the coastline a more artistic quality. Fiscardo attracts its own jet set and although coffees are more expensive than in the nearby villages, people and yacht watching from one of the waterfront cafe bars is a very pleasant pastime. Children might prefer the sandy beaches of the south but the north has a softer character, more suited perhaps to grown ups.

"Relax and dream"

A lovely week in one of the prettiest places we have stayed. The apartment details are accurate, it's comfortable and very clean, and the air conditioning is great. This really is in a lovely position, and it's a pleasure to sit on the balcony and watch the boats - take binoculars. Fiskado is a yachting village and at least in September, is full of well behaved, middle aged Brits, so maybe not for anyone looking for hectic night life. That said there are excellent, reasonably priced, restaurants with very friendly staff and plenty of good wines and beer, (and the honey and yoghurt is to die for....) We loved it and have booked to go back next year!

What are the unique benefits of the property?

Apart from the convenience of being within easy walking distance of Fiscardo and nearby bathing, the Apartment's main feature is the ever-changing view from the balcony and terrace. A 180 degree panorama takes in the bathing rocks, the Venetian lighthouse on the other side of the bay, Lefkas in the distance and the coastline of Ithaca - just a few miles away. In between there are yachts from different parts of the world trying to find a mooring point in the port. Boat hire is available on the waterfront (outboards up to 30HP) - a great way to explore the coastline & find your own private beach.
