Lavender Cottage is a delightful small cottage sharing gardens, but retaining its own privacy. One high spot of staying here is a lovely terrace, surrounded by trees, flowers and beautiful sea views. A fifty metre secret path leads from the cottage across the road to the shore where it is possible to swim from the rocks. The owner, Lyda, lives close by and is a fount of knowledge on Kefalonia.

Fiskardo village beach can be reached on foot in eight minutes, whilst the very attractive, tree-edged beach at Foki is just a ten-minute stroll away. Fiskardo is a particularly attractive, lively village, with beautiful old houses, some excellent restaurants, small shops and from where small boats can be hired to explore nearby coves. The juxtaposition of the village's rather stylish charms and the simple pleasures of Lavender Cottage provide an almost perfect experience of Greece without the need for a car.

Customer feedback

Lavender Cottage is delightful, with stunning views and in a great spot for yacht-watching. The terrace was so relaxing with the crickets chirping in a chorus. All the décor in the cottage is so Greek and the array of the owner’s bits and pieces are charming. The interior really felt like a home. A very special place to relax and enjoy Fiskardo.
Moira & Roger – July 2018

Wendy is brilliant, she was very knowledgeable about the local area which was a good help, we didn't have a need to contact her during our stay but she remembered my husband's birthday which was kind of her and she fully explained the departure details when she brought them. She was lovely and it's reassuring to know there's someone around who knows what's what if you do need them.
Mrs Merrick – October 2016

Second visit and not disappointed! We had a fantastic, relaxing week. Thanks again to Wendy for her welcome and support. We'll be back!
Mr Hicks – August 2016

We came here for a week of relaxation, our first ever holiday without the children in 20 years! It was perfect! What a fabulous holiday. Thank you Wendy for all the info!
Mr Smith – August 2015

Two weeks of sheer indulgence, books, sun, wine, food and more wine. Views from the villa are superb. Having had holidays in many Greek islands since the 1980s, I can honestly say this has probably been our favourite. Wendy continues to be very helpful and friendly.
Mr Townsend – June 2015

We had a relaxed, chilled and peaceful week in lovely Lavender Cottage.
Mr Bishop – May 2014

We had a very relaxing week at Lavender Cottage. Breakfasts on the terrace with the lovely views and watching yachts come sailing into the harbour. Wendy is very good, and has excellent knowledge of the area, she is enthusiastic and helpful.
Mrs Raczynski – May 2014

Excellent service from start to finish.
Mr Piggin – June 2013

A wonderful property in a perfect location. Friendly, efficient organisation and excellent support – the attention to detail throughout just took the stress away as soon as we stepped off the plane. It was a real pleasure travelling with a company that we feel we can trust and Simpson Travel more than lived up to that.
Mrs Robinson – June 2013

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.
