Why Lesley Barritt chose Kefallonia (Cephalonia)

David and Lesley lived in Fiscardo in 1978 where they fell in love with the quaint fishing village. At the first opportunity they bought land from the church and built their first house, Fiskardo house. Fiscardo is breathtakingly beautiful; it has a coastline dotted with rocky coves at the foot of dense, vivid green forest and a crystal clear sea so warm you can swim all day. In the hills lie half-forgotten villages unchanged for generations with small tavernas and bars.

What makes this villa unique

Fiskardo House has access to the nearby Emelisse Hotel which offers a tennis court, squash court, gym and spa. It is a 6 minute walk down to the picturesque Venetian village of Fiscardo yet very private. It is within walking distance of beaches.
