Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Fiskardo - Villa Vassilis, Fiscardo
Fiscardo, Stunning Villa, Stunning Views
Breathtaking sea views and sits amongst the tree tops on a hillside of cypress and olive, which descends to the crystal clear waters of Foki Bay, an idyllic white pebble cove just 2 kms distant. Continue around the coast and the picturesque waterfront of the little harbour side town of Fiskardo, is just 3 kms further.
Outstanding sea views encompass the islands of Lefkas, Meganissi and mythical Ithaca, home of Odysseus, and from the wide terraces , the steady passage can be tracked of small sailing flotillas, ferries and colourful fishing boats plying their ways between the islands.
This super-smart, modern Villa is laid out over 2 levels with the open plan living accommodation and the master bedroom on the first floor and two twin bedrooms at pool level.
The vaulted wooden ceiling of the open plan living room creates a cool light and airy space, augmented by two sets of French windows.. Cool and neutral colours have been employed throughout and the comfortable L shaped sofa, contemporary dining furniture and wood kitchen units finished with shiny natural granite work tops all combine to great effect.
Through an arch, the décor of the first floor full bathroom, finished in wild shocking pink, works beautifully as an amusing antithesis to the otherwise neutral colour theme. The adjoining double bedroom has access to the terrace via French doors and from here the wide terrace extends, with beautiful sea views every step of the way, beyond the living room around to the partly shaded semi-circular ‘chill out' area above the pool, furnished with rattan furniture.
Gleaming wooden stairs wind down from the living room to the twin bedrooms on the lower level. Here there is a smart shower room and a twin bedroom with not just one, but two sets of French windows to the pool terrace and a second twin bedroom with French doors and an ensuite shower room.
Outside, this lower level is bordered by climbing terraces and which is where the owner, with a degree in horticulture, really shines her light and she has her heart set on an oasis of colour and scents. She also intends to plant salad vegetables for guests to enjoy.
The sparkling waters of the infinity pool (6m x 3m) appear to tumble over the lip into the forest below and this is the spot, reclining on a sun bed and armed with a good book or some music where days can slip lazily by. If you aren’t barbecuing ‘in’ then there is a little taverna on Foki beach serving traditional Greek fare and at Fiskardo 3 kms further you will be spoilt for choice at the harbour front tavernas. There is some lovely walking in this area and little beaches to be discovered all around this northern tip of the island.
