Perks for the Parents

This beautiful cottage is a blend of shabby chic and contemporary cool, with a private lap pool and stunning terraces all a short walk from the beach. With 3 terraces overlooking the Aegean and outdoor dining and bright flowers all around it has classic Greek appeal, but it’s far from rustic: a contemporary kitchen, designer bathroom with exquisite walk-in shower and a full concierge service add special perks including private chefs, boating trips and in-villa beauty services. Sunset dining is the thing on the terrace, with views of the sea. It can be booked with its sister cottage, The Fig Cottage to sleep 10-12 people in total.

Why Kids Love it

The property is a 30-minute walk/10 minute drive from the nearest beach and has space to play around it. There is a private lap pool (12 x 2.5m). Note that it is better for children over 5 - there are some stairs and drops that do not suit toddlers and crawling babies. There is a quiet reading space on the master bedroom's mezzanine level with views of the meadow ideal for playing and relaxing. Breakfast on the patio is fun under the sail, drinking fresh local juice and eating freshly baked bread. A crib and high chair are provided with a baby bath available on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights but short breaks may be possible on request. We would recommend it for families with children over 5 ideally - there are hazards for crawling babies and toddlers: ungated stairs, non-toddler safe balcony, no pool gate and steps and gravel paths not compatible with strollers. There is a mid-week cleaning service and the pool is cleaned at least once a week. Daily cleaning can be arranged for an extra fee. Cleans include a full linen and towel change. Amenities include ironing facilities, hairdryer and a beach umbrella. There is no wheelchair access. This property has an EOT Licence No: MHTE 0458k 91000 473 401

About the Location

The residence is near the town of Fiskardo in Kefalonia. The nearest beach is a 30-minute walk away; others are 10 minutes away by car. There are 2 traditional tavernas within a 10 minute walk and the closest shops are in Fiskardo, 10 minutes away by car. Kefalonia Airport is the closest, 1 hour 20 minutes away; there are some direct flights from Europe but commonly guests may need to fly to Athens and take a connecting flight. Car rental is recommended but not essential, as there are beaches, cafes and tavernas in walking distance. Management of the properties are based in the same village. The owners offer a full concierge service including private boat hire, excursions, massage and tailor-made yoga classes all bookable prior to your holiday or in resort.

Accommodation Details

The cottage has 3 bedrooms: 2 double bedrooms and 1 with twin beds or a double bed as required. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite shower room and a small private terrace, and there is also a family bathroom. The living room/kitchen has a well equipped family kitchen, TV, DVD and surround sound stereo, and opens on to the 3 terraces. The mezzanine level in the living room offers an extra bedroom with a double bed. All bedrooms and the living room have air conditioning. Camp beds also available on request.

Style Notes

Modern Greek. This is a stylish take on the quintessential Greek cottage, with whitewashed walls, exposed stonework and bougainvillea growing on the terrace. A modern extension has created an extra bedroom and bathroom, and easy access to the terrace and pool. The aspect is west facing so there is a fantastic view of the sunset over the sea. We love the decor - original stone walls and modern art sitting beautifully together - and the mezzanine reading space.

Kefalonia, Greek Islands

Poppy fields and hidden beaches

The largest of the Ionian islands in western Greece, Kefalonia is a paradise island for families. It’s all about the white sand beaches, picnics in poppy fields and boat trips to hidden beaches. Visit the glamorous town of Fiskado in the north, go snorkelling in the clear water or hike in the hills.
