About The Owner

I have worked in tourism, in Greece since 1989 when I led and organized walking holidays in the white mountains of Crete.

I then worked as a "handy person" for a villa specialist and they asked me to work for them in Kefalonia as they needed someone who spoke Greek to help them to find more properties for their portfolio.

Since then I have worked for blue chip travel companies as a representative, then island manager.

During my involvement in working for these villa specialists I got an insight into the important things people require from their holiday accommodation.

Amigdalospito (Almond House) ticked all the boxes! We had been looking for the "right' place for a few years. The restoration was a vertical learning curve and was more hands on than you would ever imagine!

Why The Owner chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

Kiriakos Ferentinos, built his dream home only a few years ago and each year he works hard to maintain and improve the property.

It is built on family land and has been carefully placed among mature olive, fruit trees and vines.

The house is spacious and well planned with a wonderful pool, terrace and gardens. With plenty of off street parking and wireless internet in the house.

I translate Kiriakos' emails for him as he is not confident in speaking and writing English. Being a part of the local community it is good to be of help! Also Kiriakos has been awarded the Greek Tourist Licence EOT.

What makes this villa unique

This modern villa is set in its own grounds surrounded by mature trees in a beautiful rural setting near the village of Vasilikades. The amazing sunset views from the pool terrace and bedroom balconies are ever changing and memorable. There is a great barbecue area with lots of space and outside seating. It is a few minutes walk to a great taverna with good home cooking and similar sunset views. Close to Assos and Fiscardo it is a great base from which to tour the island. NEW. REDUCED RATES FOR ALL MAY AND JUNE REMAINING WEEKS.

Lovely stay at Kiriakos' Villa

  • 5 of 5

A family holiday with 2 young children at this lovely villa made this a very enjoyable holiday. Well positioned for north of the island, with Fiskardo not too far away. The villa was well equipped and comfortable, and the pool was lovely.

A fantastic villa in a beautiful part of the island

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful fortnight at kiriakos' house- it is a great villa with wonderful views, in the tiny village of vasilikades. The villa has everything you could want and more- particularly appreciated were the super comfy beds and air con which was a blessing as we hit the heatwave in august , and it made sleeping no problem. The terraces and pool area is the best feature- we happily whiled away many lazy hours by the pool ,with nothing but the tinkiling of goat bells to hear- really heavenly!!

There are two great tavernas in walking distance - vegera up the hill (music tues and sat) and o makis down into the village. Both excellent and we visited several times. Further afield fiskardo was alsways good to visit with a big choice round the harbour. Loved Agia ierusalem beach and the Odysseus taverna next to it.

We also contacted spiros to rent the boat for part of a day which was fantastic (not cheap but worth it) . The speed boat was great fun and dennis the captain took the family to some amazing coves and bays to snorkel and enjoy the views.

Thanks to sue, Karen and kiriakos for making our holiday so great- we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others and hope to come back again soon.

Rest and Relaxation - family of x 5 in this fabulous Villa - quiet village stones throw from coast

  • 5 of 5

Simply fabulous Villa and the Pictures do not do it justice. There should be more ! Big Villa in big plot with large living space downstairs / x 1 bedroom downstairs (Double bed) and x 2 bedrooms upstairs (x 1 with Double bed and x 1 with twin beds). All well appointed and also x 2 ample toilets each with shower (one up / one down) open plan kitchen with breakfast table and large open plan living room with 6 seater sofa and WIFI / WIFI TV with NETFLIX / YOU TUBE connectivity. All mod cons - Washing machine / oven / hub / grill / fridge freezer / toaster / sandwich toaster / kettle / coffee perculator - lots of knives/forks/kitchen knives and plates / saucepans - a home from home for mum and dad and three kids. Table and chairs on covered area outside / patio area (covered). Stairs down to lovely pool area and x 4 loungers and also covered type arbour beside pool (seats x 6). Pool guy arrives early (daily) and maid in twice per week. Property spotless with lovely gardens maintained and beautiful view from pool area overlooking Ionian sea - sun setting in west and sinking into sea spectacular. 5 min walk from Villa into main village (main thoroughfare - just be careful in walking on own never mind kids - 20 secs. in car - x 2 supermarkets and x 1 Taverna "Makis" in village. The gem of a Taverna is "Veggera" - reach top of drive on property - run right and 60 yards on right hand side of road. Beautiful views to sea and very, very reasonable and fantastic food - ate x 4 times and consistently 60 Euro for family of x 5 with main course each / fizzy drinks for kids and half litre of house wine for mum and dad followed by ice cream for kids and coffee for Dad. Elsewhere - Fiskardo and Assos are Venetian fishing village highlights - Fiskardo full of yachts and for the well heeled (but not overly) many restaurants and cafes and shops - beautiful circa x 20 eating places. Assos, smaller and more laid back and quaint with cafe or two and circa x 4 Restaurants. As for beaches - Foki / Acqua Alaties are particular highlights only 15 mins. drive in hire car from villa. Both with Taverna's - The Acqua Alaties Taverna fabulous selling lighter menu with Metze's and pasta and light sandwiches and beer/wine and cocktails. Run by Italian/Greek Stefano - good fun and with free bar football table and great music / chilled vibe. some nicer smaller villages with supermarkets and great coffee house - Cafe Picnic really good for breakfast. Would go back in a heartbeat !!

Owner's Response: Thanks Donald for a great review. Kiriakos is so pleased you and your family enjoyed the villa and amenities. You are right it is a great location for a family or a group of friends as there is plenty of space. He works hard to improve his property every year. The island has so much to offer and pleased you all had a wonderful holiday. We look forward to seeing you all again in the future.

Kiriakos House

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in this wonderful villa. We had everything we could wish for and the location was perfect. There was a choice of outside sitting areas which had wonderful views over the village, mountains and sea. The sunsets were beautiful and the pool fantastic. The owner has maintained the villa incredibly well.

A 15 minute drive will take you to Fiskardo which is beautiful and there are also lovely little coves that are within 10 minutes drive of the villa. These also have some fantastic tavernas, one offering home cooked food which was excellent.

If you don't wish to use a car everyday then there are 2 village shops and 2 taverna's, one with live Greek music, these also serve lovely food.

We were made to feel very welcome and Susan and Karen couldn't have been more helpful with providing all the information we could ask for, I'd certainly take their recommendations on where to swim and eat.

Thanks for a fantastic holiday and we'll hopefully be returning.

Suzanne, Pete and Alexa

Car: recommended


Beaches within a 10-15 minute drive are Agia Gerousalim (with sunbeds and sea kayaks for hire) and a taverna with great home cooking. The small fishing village of Assos, lined with houses and a couple of tavernas and bars with a beach and imposing fortress. Alaties, Dafnoudi, Foki (south of Fiscardo) and Emblissi (NE of Fiscardo) are all about 10 minutes drive. A 20 minutes drive away is the famous Myrtos beach which is especially stunning when viewed from the northern cliffs above.


The airport is known as Kefalinia (EFL). It is just over 1 hours drive from Kiriako's house. Nearest port is Fiscardo with ferry links to Lefkas and Ithaca. Sami is 30 minutes drive with ferries to Ithaca, Patras on the Peloponese and Astakos on the mainland. Car hire is recommended which we can organise for you. Buses are infrequent and at unsociable hours. There is some lovely walking locally and taxis are relatively inexpensive.


Fiscardo is 8 kms, Assos 10 kms, Agia Efimia is 21 kms, Sami 30 kms with the famous Drogarati Cave and Melisani Lake nearby. Argostoli the capital is 46 kms with shops, tavernas and bars. The Archeological Museum and Korgialenio Historical and Folklore Museum are well worth a visit.

Further Details:

2 minutes walk away is the Taverna Vengera which sometimes has live Greek Bouzouki music. Makis Taverna, for good traditional home cooking and Alexia's Pizzeria are both 4 mins walk away. All these do a takeaway service. The village of Vasilikades also has a cafe/bar, supermarket, small corner shop (selling local meat!), Health Centre and petrol station. Fiscardo has shops, Tavernas and Supermarkets as well as cashpoints, post office, car/bike and boat hire. The picturesque waterfront village of Assos with a beautiful walk up to the fortress which overlooks the village and waterfront tavernas. The beach is great for children as it is shallow and sandy in the water, ideal for learning to swim.
