Stillness surrounds you in the morning, a perfect time to take a dip in your private pool, but as the heat of the day sets in, enjoy a siesta under your shady vine-covered terrace. Spacious balconies and terraces are the perfect companion to a lunch spread of local dishes – visit the local shops in Fiskardo or Trapezaki for supplies.
And as the Mediterranean sun begins to set and the nearby harbour lights start to twinkle, enjoy the view over the Ionian Sea from your terrace with a glass of wine in hand.
The delights of Fiskardo
Within easy access of our luxury villas, the harbour village of Fiskardo wraps up history in the most charming of packages, the balconies of its pastel-coloured, 18th-century houses festooned with flowers. Meanwhile, the vestiges of World War II are never far away and recent finds, including jewellery, pottery and bronzes, testify to the Roman occupation many centuries ago.
The tranquil charm of Trapezaki
The landscape of Trapezkai is classic Kefalonia, where densely forested hills drop down to the coastline and a string of sandy beaches. Dominating all is Mount Ainos, the island's highest peak that can be seen from all around Trapezaki. Choose your beach to suit the mood, from quiet Trapezaki to the water sports and seafront tavernas at Lourdas or the UNESCO-recognised Agios Thomas beach, full of rock pools and ideal for snorkelling.
