About the property

Villa Fengaraki, Kefalonia - Panoramic Sea Views Over Lixouri/argostoli Bay, 2 Mins Walk From Local Traditional Taverna

Our Villa Fengaraki is a fabulous villa located in the natural Livadi plane only a short stroll from the unspoilt Livadi bay, located in an ideal position for touring Kefalonian island. We are less than 10 minutes drive from the bustling traditional town of Lixouri, where you will find a large selection of restaurants and shops. Down at the harbour every morning, for those fish lovers you can purchase fresh catches from the local fishermen, great for an evening BBQ. When your feeling lazy the local taverna Paliki is only a couple of minutes stroll away from the villa. The grounds of the property are walled with private parking and the whole villa is equiped with broadband Wifi and satellite T.V. The covered veranda offers shade during the hot summer days and the large patio area is ideal for outdoor cooking on the brick built barbecue. The upper patio is great for those who adore basking in the sun, as this is a sun trap almost all day. The pool is kept crystal clear and has a tiled step for easy access. There is also a power jet seating area where you can relax and take in the amazing sea views. The whole property overlooks the Paliki bay and on towards some of the highest mountains on Kefalonia. There is a swing set and trampoline for entertaining the little ones. It's a great family villa. The bay of Livadi is a natural plane which attracts many varieties of birds and wildlife (great for birdwatchers and naturalists). The location of Villa Fengaraki is ideal for visiting many of the areas of Kefalonia island such as Fiscardo, Assos, Agia Efimia and Sami with the caves and lake. The Paliki peninsular is a very traditional area of Kefalonia and is ideal for those looking to capture the old Greek style. You may even be able to still catch a glimpse of the old gentleman riding his donkey into town. In the area there is the fabulous beach of Petani with it's small coves ideal for snorkling, as is the Atheras bay just up the road. Xi beach is perfect for small children with particularly shallow waters and inflatable water trampolines and games. At Vatsa beach you can soak up the atmosphere of Spiros traditional taverna which is located right on the beach and serves fantastic fish and meat dishes. For those easy days try out the four slide water park at Kounopetra to keep the family entertained. There are so many places to visit on this part of the island that you may not even get chance to explore further afield.

Frances Findlay purchased this villa in 2004

Why Frances Findlay chose Paliki

The property is in a great location and with fabulous sea and mountain views. The villa is close to a local taverna serving traditional food and drink, making it perfect when you don't want to travel far. We loved the brightness and airy feeling of the location.

What makes this villa unique

Lixouri town is great for all it's amenities and social life during the summer months. It is still a traditional working town and has a large square in it's centre which is a hive of activity during the evening. Satalite TV channels available including sports and film viewing from OTE TV.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mr Luned-June2012,What a lovely time we spent at Villa Fengaraki,the location was perfect for catching the ferry to Argostoli(which we did 3 times as was much better than driving), visiting Assos and Fisgardo. The weather of course was hot and sunny, the pool was the just right for a cooling off 'dip'.Suze Swindon May 2010. We had a great holiday staying at this villa for two weeks. The villa is very spacious and very well maintained. The trampoline and swings in the garden were a hit with the children too. We walked down to Lotos restuarant where the people were very welcoming, friendly and cooked us a fantastic meal which was great value.The villa is also in a good position for exploring the island. George North Yorkshire June 2010. We rented this villa in June 2010 and had a fantastic time. Everything that we needed was there and some things we hadn't thought of as well! The car hire included in the price was great and definitely needed for this location. Customer service perfect.

Wonderful holiday - again!

  • 5 of 5

Returned for the third year running. Had a great family holiday again. All as we remembered it. Lovely clean villa and pool. Explored even more of the island this year. Had not visited Sami before. Enjoyed cocktails by the harbour. Visited our old favourites - potami beach, Assos, boat hire from Agia Effimia etc. Greeted warmly by tavernas in Lixouri who remembered us from previous years. Ate in the many tavernas in Lixouri and by ferry to Agostoli. You need a car to get around. Had some good days of relaxation around the pool. Villa and pool both regularly cleaned and Frances and Barry were very friendly and helpful as always. Hope to return again next year!

Returned for another fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Returned again this year after such a great holiday in this villa last year. We were not disappointed! Villa was even better than we remembered, had obviously been well maintained over the winter. The welcome flowers when we arrived were a nice touch. Villa was very clean and was cleaned regularly during our fortnight (as was the pool). Had some lovely lazy days by the excellent pool. Explored a bit more of the island this year. Potami and Zola are our favourite beaches (note that the beach tavern on Zola doesn't open until midday). Lovely day in Assos and would thoroughly recommend hiring a small boat from Agia Efirmia and spending a day exploring the beaches inaccessible by road (need to book). Ate in Lixori most evenings or took ferry across and ate in Agostoli (plenty of choice in either). Thank you once again to Frances and family who were always helpful. We hope to return again next year.

We had a lovely relaxing week at Villa Fengaraki. The house is spacious and well appointed and the pool is fantastic and was adored by the children (and the grown ups come to think of it!). The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and we were very grateful for the air con in the bedrooms and the welcome pack of drinks and breakfast supplies. The linen was changed part way through the week. Frances was very easy to contact when we had a problem with the electricity and she helped us rectify it straight away. You absolutely need a car if you are going to book this villa as you need to drive into Lixouri (approx 15 mins) for supermarkets and tavernas, and of course if you want to explore the rest of this beautiful island. We found Lepeda and Xi beach to be very child friendly with shallow waters and virtually no waves. Petani was beautiful but the waves meant we weren't able to truly relax with two three year olds in tow so it was a short visit! This side of the island is far less busy than the more well known resorts on the east and south sides which suited us perfectly, although having been to Kefalonian several times It is well worth exploring the other parts, but perhaps not in the height of summer if you don't fancy driving down a steep coastal path to Antisamos beach only to find there are absolutely no sunloungers available! We were relieved that day to return to the peace and tranquility of Villa Fengaraki!

All in all a great holiday!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a villa for 8 people and fortunately we booked this one!

Very reasonable price; nice facilities (including spacious bedrooms with their own bathrooms, kitchen, washing machine etc); the pool had hydro-massage (!); the booking and payment procedures were easy and the manager/owner is very helpful.

Last but definitely not least, when we arrived the villa was full of complimentary food and drinks. Just to mention a few: beers, wine, ouzo, milk, juice, bottles of water, eggs, bacon, bread, cereal, jam, honey, butter etc.

I want to thank the owners for everything and I want to recommend this place to everyone!

The local Lotos taverna is only a few minutes stroll from the villa and serves a variety of local dishes.
