“Stunning Villa, Stunning Views”
This recently built Villa , finished to the highest standard, enjoys breathtaking sea views and sits amongst the tree tops on a hillside of cypress and olive, which descends to the crystal clear waters of Foki Bay, an idyllic white pebble cove just 2 kms distant. Continue around the coast and the picturesque waterfront of the little harbourside town of Fiskardo, is just 3 kms further.
Outstanding sea views encompass the islands of Lefkas, Meganissi and mythical Ithaca, home of Odysseus, and from the wide terraces , the steady passage can be tracked of small sailing flotillas, ferries and colourful fishing boats plying their ways between the islands.
This super-smart, modern Villa is laid out over 2 levels with the open plan living accommodation and the master bedroom on the first floor and two twin bedrooms at pool level.
The vaulted wooden ceiling of the open plan living room creates a cool light and airy space, augmented by two sets of French windows.. Cool and neutral colours have been employed throughout and the comfortable L shaped sofa, contemporary dining furniture and wood kitchen units finished with shiny natural granite work tops all combine to great effect.
Through an arch, the décor of the first floor full bathroom, finished in wild shocking pink, works beautifully as an amusing antithesis to the otherwise neutral colour theme. The adjoining double bedroom has access to the terrace via French doors and from here the wide terrace extends, with beautiful sea views every step of the way, beyond the living room around to the partly shaded semi-circular ‘chill out' area above the pool, furnished with rattan furniture.
Gleaming wooden stairs wind down from the living room to the twin bedrooms on the lower level. Here there is a smart shower room and a twin bedroom with not just one, but two sets of French windows to the pool terrace and a second twin bedroom with French doors and an ensuite shower room.
Outside, this lower level is bordered by climbing terraces and which is where the owner, with a degree in horticulture, really shines her light and she has her heart set on an oasis of colour and scents. She also intends to plant salad vegetables for guests to enjoy.
The sparkling waters of the infinity pool (6m x 3m) appear to tumble over the lip into the forest below and this is the spot, reclining on a sunbed and armed with a good book or some music where days can slip lazily by. If you aren’t barbecuing ‘in’ then there is a little taverna on Foki beach serving traditional Greek fare and at Fiskardo 3 kms further you will be spoilt for choice at the harbour front tavernas. There is some lovely walking in this area and little beaches to be discovered all around this northern tip of the island.

Interaction with guests
We, at Freelance Holidays, manage the properties on behalf of the owners. We will provide you the details of our 24/7 contact person, Diane, who lives on Crete and is available to ensure everything goes smoothly, before & during your stay with us.
She will send you a message just before your holiday starts so you will have her details. Should you need anything during your stay, please contact her as she has had nearly 30 years of experience in the hospitality field & knows the island well & apart from English she speaks Greek & can sort out just about anything.
We provide very good directions which you need to download from the Airbnb Itinerary once you have booked. On these directions it explains where the keys will be & step by step on how to get to the accommodation.
Once you arrive, you just let yourself in & start to enjoy your holiday.
Freelance Holidays provides a Property Manual inside the accommodation which tells you all about the important things ie. wifi codes, hot water systems, where to take your rubbish & how things generally work in the villa.
Plus, there is a very good Freelance Holidays information booklet about Kefalonia in the accommodation for you to use throughout your stay. Here you will find further details about places to go, beach maps plus a taverna guide.
You may meet the caretaker-owner, Alexandra with the cleaners when they come for the changing of the linen. The pool man maintains the pool regularly.

Hi, our names are Diane (rear left) Paul (rear right) Chris C (front left) & Chris L (front right) together we are the team at Freelance Holidays: We've been in the villa rental business since 1984, and are still going strong.
Since 1984 we have been keen as mustard about seeking and offering the best villa rentals in the best locations. In the beginning these were simple village houses and studios in Crete, and some villas in Mallorca. over the years we have added more choices of Mediterranean islands where we have sourced some great villas. Tastes have changed and we are now able to offer some fantastic villas, each with something special and different from the mass market operators usual selection. We have continued to keep our roots and proudly continue to offer typical village accommodation
