Overview

About the property

pool, two bedrooms with 3 private batherooms

Located in the typical greek village of Tselendata , surrounded by a forest of cypresses, Villakalimera is distinguished by its traditional stone houses’s character and charme.

Here you can relax in the several outdoor , articulated under the shadow of two apricot trees between cypresses and olive trees , just few steps from Foki beach . The house is spread over two floors: on the ground floor there is a large living room and kitchen; on the first floor there are two large bedrooms, with its own bathroom each .

Full equipped with facilities for barbecue , breakfast and lunch outdoors with friends ; for children to play , for reading under the trees, swaying lazily in the hammock.

Villakalimera is only 2 kilometers from Fiskardo, the lovely marina destination for the most experienced sailors and pleasure craft the most prestigious of the Mediterranean sea. Many small pubs and restaurants animate the picturesque sea front .

Villakalimera therefore has the double advantage to remain hidden from the more massive tourism but at the same time so close to Fiskardo to allow, to those who want ,to immerse themselves in the comings and goings of the many visitors that animate the picturesque harbor .

The welcome is guaranteed at Villakalimera by custodial staff that provides water and linen cleaning on arrival and departure of guests who stay there . It should be noted that the water on the island of Kefalonia is a precious good to be consumed with care and attention . It is stowed in the ancient cistern and is not drinkable but can be used for all needs: cleaning and cooking of visitors.

We wait for you and we are sure that you will spend happy hours and an unforgettable stay in opur woods and sea.

About Gian Piero Donin

I'm Gianpiero Donin, landscape architect.full professor of landscape architecture at the University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria.

Gian Piero Donin purchased this villa in 2000

Why Gian Piero Donin chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

I hang out the island of Kefalonia For many years , Fiskardo particularly. I arrived almost 35 years ago when the houses were still all white and free camping still permitted. Slowly I watched tourism and facilities to accommodate grow. There where many buldings partially destroyed in the past by an earthquake and one by one they has been renovated . So was Villakalimera that appeared to me immediately beautiful: surrounded by a forest of cypress and so close to the amazing beach of Foki. The house has been declared 'traditional home' by the greek government and therefore protected in its forms and details.

What makes this villa unique

The finishing and details are left as much as possible related to its past: the ancient cistern, the entrance to the lane facing to the village track, the small blue windows. The interiors are simple and there are mixed objects collected by the owner over many trips in Africa. The renovation of the house, built in 2006, has endowed it with important works in order to make anti-seismic reinforcement structures. The respect of the traditional forms of rural house did not prevent, however, to provide it with every modern comfort.

Beautiful home and garden!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Villakalimera, the house and garden are so beautiful, lovely shady areas, flowers and the pool was perfect to cool down in; kids enjoyed endless hours playing around in the pool, and being right next to the house we could easily keep and eye on them. The house was beautifully decorated inside too with the blue and white theme, lovely outlook and really nice and close to Foki beach.

We loved Foki beach, great snorkelling and lots of shady places to chill out in the heat of the day, easy to find your own spot along the rocks too. We loved other beaches too, Kimilia and Emblisi;

We had a great day out with Ionian Discoveries on their day trip where they take your to various beaches for snorkelling and show you the sea life, delicious lunch and highly recommended! We ate very well along the seafront in Fiskardo and beach restaurants, our favourite being the one at Jerusalem Beach, Odysseas Taverna, fantastic authentic Greek food!

Piero and Marzia were really lovely hosts, so friendly and helpful, thank you both for providing such a fabulous place for us to stay for the week, we loved Kefalonia and hope to return one day soon!

The perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, thank you Piero and Marzia for making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. You were the perfect hosts. From organising baby essentials for our little girl, to advising on good places to eat and visit you made our 10 days with you feel like a home from home.

The house was fully equipped, clean, comfy and had a wonderful homely feel to it where we all felt very safe.

It is in a great location, a small stroll to Foki beach (which is glorious) and very close to fiscardo and even closer to supermarkets in

Magganos.

We are looking forward to coming back next year. Thanks again

Meraviglia di casa!

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati a Fiskardo alla fine di giugno 2015. La casa del sig. Donin ( davvero super cortese!) ci ha subito accolti con il suo calore e buon gusto. Che dire, comoda per ogni necessità.Il piano sotto è composto da un'accogliente salotto con un bel tavolo dove abbiamo potuto cenare nelle sere particolarmente ventose e di una cucina attrezzata di ogni cosa. Il piano superiore, al quale si accede con una scala esterna tutta scavata nella pietra, è compostra da tre belle e accoglienti camere ognuna provvista di bagno privato. Essendo noi tre famiglie, con tre bambini, la sistemazione si è rivelata ottimale. La maggior parte del tempo lo abbiamo trascorso all'aperto, nel bel giardino, attorniati da piante e fiori, coloratissime farfalle e squisite albicocce con le quali siamo riusciti persino a fare la marmellata e un'ottima crostata per le colazioni. L'esterno è fornito di tavolo e sedie, sdraio e amaca dove rilassarsi dopo una giornata di sole e di mare. Che dire ancora? Consiglio assolutamente questa dimora per le vostre vacanze a Cefalonia...per noi è stata un sogno!!!
