THE CONCEPT:

Despite being a modern villa nowadays, offering all the desired comforts, original elements of the family mansion have been preserved, such as the kitchen window and door, the cellar on the ground floor where the family’s animals used to sleep at night, the wine press outside the kitchen for the family’s wine and last but not least, all the exquisite and unique antique furniture.

Casa Nobile is a spacious house, ideal for large families, group of friends, or simply a couple wishing to get away from it all.

This mansion feels like a home away from home.

Come and immerse yourself in its tranquility. Let the bird song and distant goat bells relax your mind. Marvel at the saturated greens and bright colors of the flowers. Lose yourself in the deep blues and translucent turquoise of the sea.Bath in the sun which washes down out of the light blue sky.

Casa Nobile is a restorative paradise to where you can escape the world.

About Catherine Marmet (property manager)

Catherine, property manager of Casa Nobile

Born in France, I lived there until I was 35. Visiting on holiday in the early 1990’s, I immediately fell in love with the stunning island of Kefalonia, and Fiscardo in particular. A dream was formed: I longed to stay. Soon, a business opportunity presented itself and I took the risk. The rest is history.

I ran a successful cafe/bar/restaurant business in Fiscardo for 10 years. It was the place to be: St Tropez-style sophistication in the then newly-blossoming resort.

It took me some time to locate the perfect plot to build a home to complete my dream, but I finally found it and finished building Villa Alto-Mare in 2001. After selling my small business, I took a break and spent amazing long summers with family and friends in it’s exceptional setting. I decided to rent the villa in 2008 and it’s success was immediate.

Not long after, with the knowledge I gained, I decided to start up my own boutique business acting as an agent for a selection of holiday villas, whose owners benefit from my personal experience. The limited number of villas I've hand-picked are based on each owner’s personality and the friendship and trust that unite us. Hailing from a range of different countries – Italy, Israel, France, Switzerland, and of course, Greece – they all share the same passion: that of their love for Fiscardo, and the north of the island. Most of them have poured that passion into the holiday homes they have built – all houses with character which are a cut above the usual holiday rental. And that is why we work well together, because they understand what a house with a heart really is. Casa Nobile is one of those.

Why Catherine Marmet (property manager) chose Fiskardo

The owners:

Historic family house rebuilt in the 1997

Hello,

My name is Venetia Parisi and I welcome you to my family home.

I am a genuine Kefalonian, even though my full name consists of the names of two European cities, Venice and Paris.

Casa Nobile is my grandmother’s family house, situated at Lavonikes village, close to famous Fiscardo.

Back in 1953, when the devastating earthquake occurred, our house was partly destroyed and my family migrated to Athens.

My father’s heart though, always belonged to Kefalonia . His home. After a very successful career in Athens, he decided in 1997 to return and rebuild the house, while preserving what was left of the ruins, trying to keep his family’s memory alive.

Of course, the “new” house, the existing one, was constructed according to all the strict building regulations regarding earthquake protection.

Furthermore , he himself planted a lush garden of fruit and decorative trees, flowers and several plants, constituting a real heaven on earth.

However, his love for his home and Kefalonia , did not stop there. He decided to actively deal with public matters, the needs of the island and its people.

My father is Alexandros Parisis, former Kefalonian Member of the Greek Parliament, Mayor of Kefalonia for the past 7 years and President of the Ionian Islands Municipalities Union for the past 4 years.

Venetia refurbished the house in the 2016 with new bathrooms and built a fantastic pool in April 2017.

A Beautiful House and Amazing Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?

We are two families with grown up children and have just returned after two amazing weeks at Casa Nobile.

We were met by Marzia who gave us all the information we needed for our stay. The house and its grounds are fantastic - the house has been built to a high standard and with great taste - we really appreciated that every detail both inside and out had such a lot of thought behind it. Very comfortable and perfect for the eight of us and we loved being able to use the different areas at various times of the day . The pool area was perfect with plenty of chairs and shade. The gardens, with fruit trees and vegetables are lovely – we had several visits from the gardener who brought us grapes, pomegranates and nuts. We cooked for ourselves every other night , using the barbeque and also tried out the outdoor wood pizza oven with great success! All of us – both young and older agreed that the best thing of all was the complete silence and all we could hear was the distant sound of the sea and the tinkling of the bells on the goats as they made their way every morning through the woods nearby.

The house is in a great position – near to Fiskardo where we went for shopping and for a coffee and waffles and also to eat occasionally- quite often at Roula's Grill. Also no distance to go to Assos and under an hour to get to Sami. Lots of lovely walks to beautiful bays and we also hired a boat for 8 of us from Regina in Fiscardo in which we spent the day going down some of the east coast. We also took advantage of the nearby hotel Emelisse which has a squash court and tennis courts and as the majority of our party are squash and tennis fanatics this was very popular!

Catherine was very helpful and if we had any questions she was very quick to respond – she even managed to locate the man who sold the goat bells for me by using her facebook network!

Our two families have been going on holiday for the last 15 years and stayed at some great villas but we have all agreed that this was the BEST. Thank you. I have already recommended to friends.

Fabulous location, off the beaten track with stunning views. Beautiful outside and comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in a beautiful location of Kefalonia. You definitely need a car to get to it as it’s off the beaten track. The gardens and swimming pool are gorgeous. Very well proportioned rooms all with own bathrooms. The kitchen is small but all you need when mainly cooking outside or dining at the fabulous tavernas near by. Some stunning beaches a short drive away. Catherine and her team were brilliant to communicate with and only too happy to go above and beyond. Georgie

Tranquil house with stunning views and a relaxed charm.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nobile is a hidden gem. If you seek a restful place to relax by a pool with beautiful scenery and gardens this is the place for you. It accommodated two families of four perfectly and the hosts were nothing but helpful for our entire stay. If you love nature the garden and surroundings provide plenty of great opportunities for birdwatching. Our children had fun listening for Scops Owls and finding lizards and playing in the pool! The nearby Alaties beach was an absolute dream and was where we spent a lot of our beach days - sunset there is a must. Thank you for a wonderful stay on the beautiful island of Kefalonia.

Superb and well equipped villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Nobile over the UK Autumn half term. Despite being so late in the year, we were able to make use good of the lovely pool and outdoor areas during the day (the evenings were a bit chilly). The villa sits in an elevated position a few kilometres from the sea, so there are wonderful views of Kefalonia's west coast. The villa was very well equipped, both inside and out. We particularly enjoyed the BBQ area, the bluetooth sound system around the pool, and the fire in the sitting room for those cold October nights. I would definitely stay here again.

Due settimane fantastiche a Casa Nobile

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso due settimane fantastiche a Casa Nobile. E' una location ideale per chi ama la tranquillità, la natura e il silenzio. Vicina alle spiagge più belle e selvagge del Nord di Cefalonia, la villa è splendida, finemente ed elegantemente arredata, dotata di ogni confort con grandi spazi esterni attrezzati ed una meravigliosa piscina. La proprietaria è stata gentilissima; ci ha accolto all'arrivo e ci ha fatto trovare tutto il necessario per la prima colazione! Anche durante la permanenza sia lei sia Catherine con la sua équipe sono stati sempre estremamente disponibili. Inoltre, frutta e verdure biologiche dall'orto adiacente alla casa ogni giorno! E' a pochi chilometri dal porto turistico di Fiskardo, dove è piacevole passeggiare, fare acquisti o cenare (ce ne è per tutti ... dalla taverna economica a ristorante più lussuoso), anche se le cene più gradevoli sono state quelle fatte a Casa Nobile con un tramonto meraviglioso, in totale relax dopo giornate di mare intenso.

Insomma, Casa Nobile è davvero un luogo ideale per staccare e la consiglio vivamente!

Lovely villa with beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa in a very private location, beautiful gardens and excellent pool area, we were met by Venetia the owner and the super efficient agent Catherine who were both very welcoming and helpful, the kitchen had been stocked with everything that we would normally have to go and shop for, milk,butter,bread,tea and coffee,cereal,water,sugar, also a big bowl of fruit had been picked from the garden and a huge basket of cherries that were delicious and very much appreciated. Car hire is essential, but would be for most villas on the Island, just a few minutes to local supermarkets and importantly it is as they say only 12 minutes from Fiskardo. Ideal villa for large families or a group of friends. Thank you Venetia for letting us stay in your treasured family home and also to Catherine for once again making our holiday go so smoothly.

Owner's Response: Thank you very very much. You have been Venetia's first guest, your words make her extremely happy. Thank you also for the villa marketing advice tip about the few minutes to local supermarket! I will insist on it on the ad! Looking forward to see you again next year! Have a great summer. Venetia and Catherine.

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.
