We are delighted to welcome back this appealing seafront property (formerly named Thea Cottage), perfectly situated between Foki Beach and the delights of Fiskardo harbour. Traditional, yet comfortable the cottage is in a wonderful location and the perfect place to sit on the spacious balcony and watch the boats pass by as they enter Fiskardo. Just opposite the cottage, down a few steps, is access to the sea for a refreshing morning swim.

The attractive harbour of Fiskardo, with its beautiful old houses and stylish shops and restaurants, is just a 12-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

Laura was a delight and handled everything just right.
Mr Rudge – October 2019

Excellent holiday. Very smooth transfer from the airport to Thea Cottage, with a very friendly taxi driver. Helpful and organised reps at the airport. Laura was very good, friendly, welcoming and with some good tips. The welcome pack did the job and informational material in the house about the area, etc. was useful. The house is delightful, with a fantastic location and views. Clean and well looked after. Another quality job from Simpson.
Mr Madoc-Jones – June 2019

Over all we had a very enjoyable holiday, with the usual high level of service from Simpson Travel.
Mr Cosgrove – June 2019

Thea Cottage is a fantastic villa and we had a truly memorable holiday. Simpson Travel exceeded all expectations for service both at home and abroad. We even had a birthday cake from the lovely representative. We cannot recommend the company highly enough. Thank you.
Stephen & John Henry – September 2018

Thea Cottage has a captivating view from its terrace and is in a wonderful location - turn right for a short walk to the beach, or turn left for a similarly short walk into the main harbour area and all the restaurants of Fiskardo. Fiskardo itself really is a most beautiful area, perfect for a relaxed getaway, which was exactly what we had hoped for. We will be back!
Chris & Irene – July 2018

We had a superb holiday; there was absolutely nothing we could fault. Simpson Travel were the consummate professionals throughout. We would not hesitate to recommend them. What you see and read in the marketing material is exactly what you get. There were no misleading photos or messages. We will definitely be booking with Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Sumner – July 2018

Had a fabulous holiday thanks to Simpson Travel. Resort rep, Laura, couldn't have been more helpful, excellent driver for the transfers and the villa was first class. Will definitely recommend and will use Simpson Travel again.
Ms Kennedy – October 2017

At Thea Cottage we found all the ingredients for a truly relaxing and peaceful holiday. We loved swimming from the rocks just below the villa and visits to nearby Foki beach with its crystal clear water and welcome shade from olive trees. We also discovered other unspoiled and quiet beaches such as Kamila beach – just a pleasant walk away. The highlight of our stay had to be the beautiful view from the balcony across the bay to the old lighthouse and mountains beyond. Simple pleasures included a daily walk to collect freshly baked bread and cakes from the Old Bakery and most evenings wandering into Fiskardo to eat at one of the excellent waterfront tavernas. Wherever we went we found a warm welcome, great food and service. Many thanks to Laura, our local representative, and the Simpson Travel team for yet another memorable holiday!
Mrs Field – September 2017

Thea cottage is excellently located and we enjoyed sitting on the terrace looking at the view and watching the incredible yachts come and go. It's a short walk to Foki beach, which was lovely, and the beach taverna there is excellent. Fiskardo, also a short walk away, is a beautiful village with many good restaurants and cafés/bars. Overall we had a lovely week in the cottage. The Simpson Travel rep, Laura, was friendly and helpful. We have travelled with Simpson Travel many times and have never been disappointed.
C & A Evans – August 2017

The great thing about Simpson Travel is that they are with you all the way. And yet it is not in an intrusive way. Just the right amount of support, friendliness and help. Nothing is too much trouble. In fact the service is truly perfect.
Mr Hoyle – June 2017


I have to say that Simpson Travel provided us with the best holiday experience we have ever encountered. From the incredible service from the booking team down to the local Simpson Travel representatives, the efficiency and support during our last minute booking and the quality and location of the accommodation we could find no fault. I know that Simpson Travel will be our first choice when booking our next holiday. Thank you to everyone at Simpson Travel for making our week away truly magical and one that we will never forget.
Mr Farnsimham – July 2016

We have just spent a very relaxing, chilled out week in Thea Cottage in Kefalonia. The view was wonderful which made it very tempting to stay put on the terrace watching the super yachts sailing in and out of Fiskardo Harbour. This was our third visit to Fiskardo, therefore we did not bother with a car this time. There are plenty of restaurants/tavernas within walking distance and we had already explored the island on our previous visits. We did, however, walk to unspoilt Foki beach, to the deserted village near Antepata and to the lighthouse which we could see from our terrace on the other side of the bay. Swimming was also possible from the rocks just below Thea Cottage. The weather and location were truly perfect. We are looking forward to our next Simpson Travel holiday!
Mrs Williamson – August 2015

We usually travel independently but this time round we just didn't have the time to put it all together so this is where Simpson Travel stepped in. Really can't recommend them highly enough, made the whole trip a joy, hassle-free.
Miss Walters – May 2015

Just completed a week in Fiskardo in Kefalonia with Simpson Travel and I can reassure potential customers that we were very well looked after by this very professional travel company.
Mr Wexelstein – 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.

  • 5/5

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.
