I have lived on Kefalonia with my family for fifteen years now. It is a beautiful island, with unspoilt natural landscapes, the clear blue Ionian sea and perfect beaches. Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands yet has the lowest population so there is plenty of room to explore.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Asteri, built in the traditional Venetian style, is located in the much sought-after north of the island. Enjoy relaxed luxury living with panoramic sea views and sunrises from your private terrace. When in the mood, you can take a short drive to Fiscardo where local fishing boats mingle in the harbour with celebrity yachts. The perfect place to people watch and eat or drink in style.
Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The Villa was very clean and totally prepared for every eventuality. Nothing was left to chance.
We found it very easy to relax into it and the holiday. Nothing was too much effort for the owner, Dimitris. We would highly recommend it.
As a family of 4 we had a great stay in this spacious villa with a good size swimming pool for our 11 & 13 year old's that the photo's do not necessarily depict. The location was great for us in so far as it had an "away from it all" feel but was only a short drive to the local shops/tavernas, great beaches and restaurants of the busier Fiskardo. We had good communication from Dimitris responding to all our queries quickly. Would highly recommend.
Lovely villa and an excellent host
The villa itself it lovely, the area is beautiful, though there is some building going on nearby, and the owner (Dimitris) is absolutely fantastic - responsive and helpful.
Luxury Villa beautifully decorated
Very happy with our stay here. Villa was superb. Very reasonably priced for such amazing luxury. Very high quality, clean and large. Elegantly decorated. Swimming pool was big enough for our whole family. Quiet area, only noise the chickens and goats.
Great hiking locally: beautiful walks to Foki beach and Fiskardo for fit walkers with decent shoes. Easy walk (15 to 20 mins on rd) to local village with fantastic grocery shop and nice Tavernas. Nice path on right-hand side of Foki beach with lots of access to quieter spots and Taverna in Foki very good value. Pleased with bus service with air conditioned good quality buses going from Fiskardo all across the island although you need to check timetable as long waits otherwise.
Taxis available easily in Fiskardo and can be called to Villa although they did use their phones when driving.
Kefalonia is very beautiful. Wonderful holiday.
Thank you very much for your kind words,
All my best wishes to you and your family,
Lovely villa, peaceful location with great views
My family of five adults spent a wonderful week in villa Asteri, Katsarata we were arriving late evening so Dimitris made arrangements for a late arrival and ensured we had enough food for supper and breakfast. The villa is well stocked with everything you will need and finished to a high standard there are excellent sea views to the Island of Ithaca and mainland Greece. The location is peaceful and relaxing, nearby is Maganos village which has two mini-markets and two tavernas the food was excellent value at Ionion where they had Greek music and dancing on a Wednesday night, the picturesque village of Fiskardo is 10 min drive away where there is a good selection of bars and restaurants. There are several local unspoilt pebble beaches with clear blue water and a slightly larger beach at Foki. Driving is straight forward and managed to visit most of the main attractions, would definitely return.
Great People like you for a lovely villa,
thank you for the honor to choose one of my properties,
Hope to see you again and share a bottle of Robola wine,
all the best
Lovely views in a unspoilt setting
We spent 2 weeks at the villa in Katsarata, a quiet and traditional setting. The villa is well equipped and comfortable. There are magnificent views across to Lefkas, Ithaca, Meganassi and the Mainland. The only sound at night is the bells on the local goats. You can walk to 2 tavernas and small shops in Maganos which takes about 25 minutes. Fiscardo can be reached within 10 minutes by car where there are many harbourside bars and restaurants and should not be missed. The beach at Foki (5 minutes by car) is lovely and unspoilt. The only downside to the villa is that the area around the pool would be quite cramped for a larger group. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Dimitris for the excellent communication and directions to the villa.
