About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with panoramic views over Ithaca and Lefkada

Kalograta Villa is a one storey, 2 bedroom villa nestled into the hillside above the picturesque and popular harbour of Fiscardo. Spectacular sea views can be enjoyed from the villa's large verandah and the graduated terraces in the garden below. The house is totally in keeping with the area; it has high wooden ceilings, locally quarried stone floors and traditional wooden windows and shutters.The villa consists of a large living and dining area, open plan kitchen and a spiral staircase that leads up to a TV lounge on a mezzanine floor. There are two bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with en suite shower rooms. The living room and bedrooms all open onto a large terrace that commands breathtaking views over the nearby island of Ithaca and Lefkada, with the mainland mountains of Epiros in the distance. Below the main terrace is a mature garden consisting of two ancient olive trees that provide welcome natural shade during the hot summer, colourful oleander bushes, scented honeysuckle and jasmine plants, yucca trees plus a lemon tree. A gradually sloping stone pathway meanders down to the private pool terrace from the house. M.H.T.E 0830K10000874701

Amazing views

Home from home, clean and comfortable.

Views are stunning and it is so peaceful and quiet.

Really enjoyed the new walking paths to Fiscardo and Foki bay from Katsarata.

A Brilliant Find

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I had an amazing 10 night stay at Villa Kalagrata. The house has everything you could need and Abi was very welcoming and helpful. We felt the pictures didn't do it justice, the views and garden are beautiful.

The house is very clean and homely. Its situated in an excellent location and completely private. We hired a car recommended by Abi, and it was brilliant for seeing the Island. The local shops in Maganos are fully stocked for such a small village and have all of the essentials and more.

I would highly recommend this Villa for anyone wanting to stay in Kefalonia and I hope to come back for another stay soon!

Lovely Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay in Villa Kalograta with our 10.5 month old crawling machine. We were able to pen him in (to prevent him going down to the pool level) with a single sun-lounger which made our stay a lot more relaxing!

The villa itself is brilliant, north facing, so lovely sunsets and sunrises, whilst remaining cool during the midday sun. Views are exceptional, it feels as if you're in the middle of nowhere, but Fiskardo is just a 10 min drive away and the nearest shop a 1km/15min walk. The nearby beaches are all small and very safe, and the water crystal clear.

We'll certainly be back.

Perfect to relax, explore & enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful family holiday here. The villa is so well situated for exploring the north of Kefalonia and the facilities are perfect for a family or even a romantic break.

The views really are truly incredible, we were able to instantly switch off and immerse ourselves in the peace and tranquility the location offers. The pool was wonderfully warm, clean and private. The local beaches were also fantastic for snorkelling, safe swimming and relaxing on. Plenty of beautiful local villages to explore, eat and shop in. Ideal holiday location if you are looking for ease but wanting it all!

Thank you so much for accommodating our every need, the BBQ was great, extra bed for the children and everything you need in the kitchen.

The welcoming local Greek treats courtesy of Abi were much appreciated, a lovely touch and well used!

We would highly recommend the beautiful villa to anyone wanting to get away from it all, but still have an easy life. A wonderful holiday, thank you.

Lovely hill top villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely villa, secluded location with spectacular views. Villa was comfortably and tastefully furnished - air con was an unexpected ( and much needed!) bonus in both bedrooms. Great pool set in well maintained and attractive terraced garden. Nice beaches and tavernas within easy reach (by car). Owners very nice and helpful. Really hope we can come back next year. Thanks again, Abi and Nick

Perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

The villa and the views were both fantastic. The setting is very peaceful and quiet with unbelievable panoramic views, no neighbouring villas have views onto the site which makes it very private and relaxing. The villa itself is full of charm and has a lovely wood burning fire which makes it nice and cosy, there is a tv, but on the mezzanine which makes the main living room much more social area. All very clean and well maintained with a lovely owner who comes twice a week to change bedding. It's great having all the rooms access directly onto the main terrace that gets great sun from morning all the way through to dusk. Would certainly recommend for people looking to get away from the busier places and find a stunning view and cosy, private villa. Need a car if you are renting here - it's a 40 minute walk to Fiscardo, and a BBQ would have been nice, but not a big deal as the kitchen is very good.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you both enjoyed the villa, views and North Kefalonia so much! Thanks for your suggestion about a barbecue; I'll buy one and put it on the terrace. It'll be much used, I'm sure, now that the evenings are warmer.
