About Catherine

I have run a successful restaurant business in Fiscardo from the early 90. Looking for the perfect lot to build this house took me a long time. I finally found it and finish to build the house in the 2001. After selling my small business, I took a rest and spent long amazing summer with family and friends in this exceptional setting. I decided to rent the villa in 2008. Success was immediate. Guest followed in love with my house and half of the guest are now returning faithful guest

I still enjoy my place in autumn and early spring.

I live now at 5 km from the villa, at East side, I have my little speed boat, my quality of life is exceptional in this very special Fiscardo area, but to tell you the true, I miss my summer sunset in Alto Mare.

Catherine purchased this villa in 2001

Shangri La

  • 5 of 5

My wife Fiona and I have stayed in many villas around the world but this holiday had everything we wanted AND I MEAN EVERYTHING!!!!

We both wanted peace and tranquility, spectacular views, yet near to local amenities and local life.

Kefalonia is a remarkable island with immense local hospitality and beautiful crystal clear waters, and as a keen diver this is as good as it gets!!!!!!!

Catherine is a tremendous host and everything is done to perfection, the villa is spotless and beyond any of your wildest dreams if you don't believe me, try it!!!!!!!

My only sorrow is the time it has taken me to write this review (call it getting old), that is why a very content couple who know the best are returning again July 1st 2012 for two glorious weeks, and we can't wait.

Many thanks Catherine and we look forward to seeing you again soon

Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. 180 degree views, sunsets into the sea, the sound of the waves, the beach in walking distance, the grocery store just a quick drive and beautiful Fiskardo was there when we wanted some life and a break from cooking. Though I might add it was very difficult to actually leave the villa. For us there was nothing more we needed. My husband and I, our 13 year old son and my 69 year old mother were totally happy!

Catherine, the owner, made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived and she assisted us in every way. A lot of thought has gone into every item in the house and it is all of the highest standard. We left there feeling totally relaxed and spoilt.

Stunning Villa, stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

If you think Villa Altomare looks good in the photos you should see it in real life! The images simple can't do the incredible panoramic view justice. This villa offers uninterrupted views from the mountains on one side to a huge expanse of blue sea to the dramatic cliffs on the other. If you're looking for the perfect getaway to relax and unwind this must surely be up there as one of the best in Kefalonia.

The standard of accommodation was also first class with very tasteful decor and furniture throughout this spacious villa. The only dilemma we had was which pool to use! Every detail appeared to have been considered. The owner made us feel very welcome and had a perfect balance of hands off to let you enjoy the holiday but was extremely helpful when required.

You would definitely need a car if you stay here. The nearest village is about 5 km away and the beautiful fishing village of Fiscardo with all its restaurants is also nearby. We found Kefalonia pretty easy to explore with plenty of stunning beaches all around the island.

I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. Simply amazing - we will definitely be back one day.

Amazing Villa in an amazing location!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we were looking for a luxury villa in Kefalonia, Villa Altomare seemed just perfect. On arrival we were amazed by the size and beautiful decor but as it was around 10pm we didnt get to see the views.

On walking up the stairs the next morning we only had one word. WOW!!! The views are simply breath taking and we took great pleasure sitting in the outside living space with a glass of wine and just taking in the stunning scenery.

The villa itself is spotless, impecably decorated and really spacious. The outside space is really impressive and having two pools meant that we were spoilt for choice, The sun on the lowewr deck early mornings and then all day on the upper deck

Catherine the owner the cleaner and the pool man were exceptionally friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We even had a breakfast hamper on arrival due to the lateness.

We will definately be returning and for anyone looking for pure luxery in a quite area with stunning surroundings this is the villa for you!! 5*

At 8 km from the villa, Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian Islands. Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953, that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia. Fiscardo, with its waterfront tavernas and bars, is simply a delight. Strict building regulations, to maintain the elegance of the Venetian architecture which lines Fiscardo's horseshoe harbour, have created a magical setting that is one of Kefalonias highlights.Traditionnal Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer. If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish. Otherwise, a stroll around the harbour will take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts. Many of them are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo.Fiscardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective.The lights, the old buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants all combine to provide a magical Mediterranean atmosphere.Of all the villages of Kefalonia, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening.

Other Activities: Sailing, diving (PADI club), motor boat for rent
