Overview

About the property

Fantastic villa with a private pool in a rural setting with unrivalled privacy

Beautiful villa with panoramic island & sea views, pool and gardens near to Fiskardo

Property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa with private pool.

Villa Cypress, offers a unique retreat, with breathtaking views over the sea to Ithaca and Lefkas. Standing in its own grounds, tucked away at the end of a country lane in the village of Konidarata just a short drive from Fiscardo, the villa enjoys a stunning sunrise over Ithaca that is absolutely worth the the effort of an early morning.

There are pretty landscaped gardens on three sides, ample sun terraces with comfortable sun beds which are easy to move around. The rear terrace overlooks the traditional stone garden area with fruit trees. The terrace here captures the evening sun to enjoy a cooling evening drink or two. Or why not find a shady spot under the old olive tree to turn a few pages of your book.

The villa overlooks a hillside stuuded with cypress and olive trees and the peacefulness is only disturbed by the sound of bells as the goats or sheep wander through the trees below.

A short five minute stroll away is a small well stocked supermarket for your grocery needs.

On entering the villa you find yourself in the open plan lounge, leading to the dining/kitchen, with comfy sofas and a well stocked bookshelf. Access here to the bathroom/wet-room. A patio door leads out to the terrace and pool.

There is a well equipped kitchen and dining area with cooker, hobs, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and complimentary WiFi is provided.

The ground floor features a spacious double bedroom with king size bed, en-suite shower room, a traditional Kefalonian wooden ceiling, its’ own patio door leading out to the pool and sun terraces together with access to the kitchen and lounge area.

Stairs from the lounge lead up to a double bedroom with king size bed which has a large balcony with table and chairs enjoying panoramic views of the Ionian

sea and neighbouring islands.

Next door is a twin bedroom. There is a bathroom with shower on this level and all upstairs rooms have traditional Kefalonian wooden ceilings.

Each bedroom has stunning views of the sea and surrounding countryside as you open the traditional honey coloured shutters.

Outstanding views- very peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

After collecting our car from the airport (a simple procedure with Greekstones Car Hire),Villa Cyprus was roughly a 90 mins steady, pleasant, daytime drive north, following Bob's (Greek Island Retreats) clear instructions-only one ambiguity, quickly resolved! The journey included a stop at a Lassi supermarket which was fortuitous since after that we relied solely on a modestly equipped, busy roadside shop situated 100yds from the villa- a very agreeable shopkeeper, none the less. We found few opportunities to buy fresh meat or fish locally but this caused us no concern as there were many traditional and good value restaurants in the Fiscardo locality. One could be forgiven for any apprehension whilst locating the property among a group of random, stone and concrete redundant buildings. But, once through the villa's metal gates it was immediately reassuring to see uninterrupted, breathtaking views beyond the villa, across the water to Ithaca and northwards in the direction of Fiscardo. Several paved areas around the pool and villa had been dedicated to follow the sun/shade during the day and had been equipped with loungers and parasols. The barbecue on the terrace had seen better days and was in urgent need of replacement so, regrettably, we dare not attempt to use it. Inside, the villa was simply furnished and very clean.The range of kitchen equipment was dated but perfectly adequate. Needless to say, we would have appreciated a few more place settings to avoid constantly washing up to allow sufficient plates for the following meal. We appreciated the teabags and bread on arrival but how we would have welcomed a Jcloth/sponge and washing up liquid! All rooms enjoyed the spectacular sea/ mountain views and the french windows enabled us to let the outside in at every opportunity. The upstairs bedroom had a particularly spectacular view and nothing beat the early morning sun streaming through the window and the opportunity to wander onto the balcony to watch the mist rising (whilst hearing only the sound of goat bells among the trees below).During our stay, we bravely drove up/down steep, winding mountain roads (not for the faint hearted) and discovered the smaller local hamlets, beaches and coves; no doubt, an even more intrepid experience during school holidays!

Villa Cyprus was in an ideal location for us and provided the r & r we needed. Thank you, Bob, for your instant, helpful responses, reassuring advice and genuine good humour. PB & DM!

Owner's Response: Hi Penny So pleased you had a great time at Cypress and the villa was everything you needed, I shall certainly pass on your comments to the owners and will have a few more place settings added to the inventory for 2018. If farming commitments allow we would love to welcome you back to Kefalonia in the very near future. Kind regards, Bob Avaient Greek island Retreats

Fantastic view, and comfortably secluded

  • 5 of 5

Villa had a fantastic view, and located a few miles from Fiscardo. had a hire car for the week, which is essential if you want to see what Kefalonia has to offer. Taxi to town was about 12 euros each way however, if you wanted to avoid driving for the evening.

VIlla was nice, and air conditioned. A very peaceful and quiet location if you like to be away from the hordes.That said, this beautiful part of the island does not attract hordes.

Villa owners provided a very helpful guide on where to go and what to do including recommended restaurants, in which we checked out several.

Some breathtaking scenery and coves only a short drive away.

Had a fantastic holiday with our friends , and look forward to going back.

Stunning views. Rural and peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to Villa Cypress. As ever, the view over to Ithaka is mesmerizing and addictive. The Three bedrooms are spacious and there are plenty of shower rooms and the dining/living area is spacious and well equipped. Patio doors from three rooms which all face the view. Wildlife, fab local shop, helpful and friendly cleaning staff and pool man. All fabulous. Bob and Annemarie at GIC were extremely efficient and friendly, (organised our car as well), with no complications. All perfect and we are looking to our fifth visit!

Stunning location and views. Completely private and so quiet and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Property was lovely, views stunning and a perfect retreat for those looking for complete relaxation. It's really tucked away so a car essential. Fiskardo lovely for evening meals ... Roulas is highly recommended!

Couple of minor niggles ... I think we may have been the first guests of the season as the villa smelt a bit damp on arrival. Would have been good to have it "aired" a bit before we arrived. There were also no cleaning materials such as washing up liquid or cloths although we were supplied with milk and fresh bread which was lovely.

Lovely views, peaceful setting, great villa

  • 5 of 5

After booking the villa, we were given full information from the knowledgable owner about the accommodation and the island. The villa fulfilled all our expectations both in its beautiful location, it's cleanliness, decor etc. The owner employed a very helpful cleaner who also offered to provide meals if required. We were given full information regarding local amenities and loved FIscardo the nearest town a 10 minute drive away. I would recommend this villa wholeheartedly to friends and relatives and would go again.

Stunning views in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had two weeks in this fabulous villa. We booked it through Bob who manages the villa through his company Greek Island Retreats. Bob made booking easy and gave us contact details of the agents in Greece should we have any issues when we were there. We arrived at the villa and instantly wound down. The views are incredible and difficult to peel yourself away from! The villa was clean and nicely presented. The cot and high chair we requested were missing, but a call to the agent and this was quickly sorted. The beds were comfy, and the air con worked brilliantly.

The cleaner we had was lovely and did a great a great job, and also answered questions we had about beaches/supermarkets etc.

The location is great if you want to feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but still be close to amenities. At the villa the only sound you hear is the crickets and birds, but a quick 10 minute drive and you're in the heart of fiskardo, or at foki beach which was our favourite.

There is a mini market a two minute stroll away so it's not a problem to pick something up if you forget when you're out.

The only downside is that the kitchen is small (not a problem in itself) but there wasn't much storage for food, and the equipment was limited-although enough to get by. This wouldn't put me off returning though, as the villa was wonderful, and I've already recommended to many friends!

Villa Cypress is set in an enviable location a short drive down a rural road in the hamlet of Konidarata. Spectacular views over to the island of Ithaca and a feeling of privacy seldom found in holiday villas .

Just a few minutes from the cosmopolitan town of Fiskardo with its bustling harbour and colourful buildings everything close by without it being on your doorstep.
