This charming, pastel-painted waterfront cottage is a rare find and a delightfully romantic property in the prettiest part of Kefalonia. In traditional style, the front door leads straight into the bedroom and from there stairs lead down via the small kitchen to a marvellous terrace. From this magical spot all the pleasures of dining, sunbathing, reading and enjoying the changing seascape, can be enjoyed all day long.

The attractive harbour of Fiskardo, with its beautiful old houses and rather stylish shops and restaurants, is just a 15-minute stroll away and Foki beach, a curve of pebbles and the natural shade of olive and cypress trees, is closer still. A boat can be hired from Fiskardo to explore the many tiny coves along this coastline.

Customer feedback

This is our third time using Simpson Travel and we know we are going to have a holiday of quality, comfort and good service. They treat you how they would like to be treated themselves. Marion, our rep, was a delight and her enthusiasm for Kefalonia was infectious! Simpson is rapidly becoming our travel company of choice.
Mrs Page – September 2019

Laura was a fantastic rep and organised some great experiences for us.
Mr Beardshaw – September 2019

Laura was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and available and helped make our return visit as memorable as the first time. Thank you.
Mr Butorac – August 2019

Another wonderful holiday and we hugely appreciate all the care taken by Simpson reps and staff in London. We found Laura and Judith both prepared to go beyond their call of duty to assist us. Both were exemplars of the best of Simpson Travel.
Mr Odium – July 2019

Another wonderful holiday and we hugely appreciate all the care taken by Simpson reps and staff in London.
Mrs K Odlum – June 2019

Efi's Cottage exceeded our expectations. We didn't know it was possible to spend a whole week living outside, but you can and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is perfect, right on the water’s edge, you can while away the time watching the boats come and go, wander down the steps to the clear water for a swim or take a relaxing 15-minute walk into Fiskardo for lunch or supper.
Andy & Caroline June 2018

We had a really lovely holiday in Kefalonia. The weather was good, the accommodation fine and the views from our terrace beautiful. Thank you for helping to make our break such a success.
Miss Collyer September 2017

Efi's Cottage is perfectly located, a short stroll from Fiskardo harbourside but far enough out to feel very private. The outside space is particularly good – between the two terraces and the shadier seating area, there was shade or sun for the whole day, depending on your preferences. Swimming from the rocks below was a real added bonus. Fiskardo itself is a gem; I doubt there's a bad choice of property in the whole place. Much recommended!
Ms Hawes – July 2017

The cottage was lovely and we will be returning next year hopefully.
Mrs Walker May 2017




We have travelled with a few well-known tour operators and found the Simpson Travel service to be second to none! Many thanks.
Mr Taylor – July 2016

It will be difficult to find the standard of accommodation, support and advice with any other operator. Outstanding destinations and excellent but discreet local representation. Very hard to beat.
Mrs Howieson – May 2016

What a wonderful place this is! We have enjoyed our stay at Efi's Cottage.
Mrs Parkin – August 2015

We have had a wonderful week at Efi's Cottage – we have loved every minute of it!
Mrs Bambury – July 2015

Thanks to Wendy for all her helpful tips. We have loved the seclusion of Efi's Cottage, being able to sit on the terrace watching the boats go by.
Mrs Rouse – May 2015

It has been a lovely quiet week here. All in all a very enjoyable week thanks to Wendy for all her help and tips.
Ms Rice – May 2015


Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Densely forested hills dotted with traditional hamlets and a coastline of small, quiet coves combine to make Kefalonia an unspoilt Greek holiday delight. Its northeastern tip shelters an easily overlooked gem in Fiskardo, whose 18th-century houses stand proud with their flower-festooned balconies and carved doors. South Kefalonia tells a different story, quieter and more traditional, with tranquil villages and beautiful beaches, as well as Skala and Argostoli with its harbour bars and restaurants.
