Katsarata, Kefalonia

About Villa Rosa

Just a short drive to the picturesque old Venetian port of Fiskardo, this luxurious villa was built on a hillside in a peaceful area in North Kefalonia taking full advantage of the beautiful sea views towards Ithaca, Leftkas and Meganisi.

You can relax on one of the sun loungers by the large, private, 10 metre long infinity pool, take in the spectacular sea views and watch the sailing boats coming in and out of Fiskardo.

The spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area is finished to a high standard with good quality units and appliances. From the open plan living area there are two double patio doors, one opens out to the pool area and the other out to an area with a dining table for alfresco dining and BBQ. On the same level is a double bedroom with king-size bed, en-suite shower room and a twin bedroom also with an en-suite shower room. The upper floor has two further bedrooms - one a double bedroom with king-size bed and patio doors leading to large balconies with seating areas and glazed fronts giving stunning uninterrupted sea views. From this terrace you can see the old Venetian lighthouse at the entrance to Fiskardo harbour. The second twin bedroom is located on this floor and both bedrooms share a shower room.

The useful utility/laundry room is located underneath the villa and is equipped with an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.

Outside the property the driveway leads from the road to the large garage which has remote control doors and is ideal for keeping cars cool in the hot weather. The villa can either be accessed by stone steps leading up to the front door or via an internal staircase from the garage.

Nothing can beat sitting on the patio or the upstairs balcony and watching Ithaca turning a deep shade of pink with the setting sun. Visit the gallery page to see the views.

The Owners

Welcome to Villa Rosa, Fiskardo and Kefalonia....

"Several years ago my husband, Gerry and I visited Kefalonia for the first time. We fell in love with the island, especially the unspoilt northern part where the pine forests go right down to the incredible blue of the Ionian Sea.

We particularly love the picturesque port of Fiskardo with its pretty Venetian style houses and tavernas surrounding the busy harbour.

We were lucky enough to buy a piece of land just a few kilometres from Fiskardo with stunning panoramic views. We never tire of the breathtaking views and nothing can beat sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and watching Ithaka turn pink with the setting sun. Everyone who's stayed at the villa have fallen in love with the house and the area and we hope you will too."

"Louisa and I would like to thank you for making our honeymoon so special. We had an amazing time - it was so relaxed and the villa was of the highest standard we have experienced. We hope to return again."

"Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We have truly fallen in love with Kefalonia, especially the view from the pool area. We have had an amazing two weeks filled with relaxation, good food and lovely evening walks into Fiscardo. This is the most wonderful home in the most amazing setting, so once again "Efharisto" for letting us stay."
