Description

New for 2021 the main house and cottage can be booked separately with shared pool. Reduced prices for smaller groups. Contact us for details.

"Amigdalospito (Almond House)" has been lovingly restored keeping many of the original features such as the old wine press and threshing circle and comes highly recommended. On the threshing circle we have 2 comfy sofas and chairs for enjoying those morning coffees or sun downers in an evening!
To the front of the house is a large terrace where we have tables and chairs for breakfast in the shade with an umbrella for eating outside during the day. To the side of the house we have a round bench seating up to 8 people. The side entrance has a porch with bench seat. Inside, built above the old wine press, we have built a fully fitted and well equipped galley kitchen.
The rest of the ground floor is an 80 sq metre dining and lounge area. Spacious and furnished with a combination of antique and modern fixtures and fittings and very well equipped throughout to a high standard to provide luxury accommodation for up to 8 people. Set on the hillside in the old village of Vasilikiades (Vasilikhiades according to Google!), near the sea with views to Ithaca and the Lixouri Peninsula. A perfect retreat for a family or group holiday, rural with all the local amenities.
There are 4 bedrooms in the main house all with en-suite shower rooms and 3 bedrooms have a balcony with table and chairs and mountain or partial sea views. The 4th bedroom is at ground level to the rear of the house and has a table and chairs outside. Two of these rooms have king size beds, one has twin beds which can also be made up as a super king with mattress topper, and the fourth bedroom has a large single bed.

The adjacent cottage is open plan with a fully fitted kitchen area, shower room, dining table and chairs, small sofa, twin beds which can be made up as a super king bed with mattress topper. Outside the cottage is a covered porch for alfresco dining with table and chairs. A terrace with 2 sun loungers and stone seating area.

The cottage has modern air conditioning where as the main house has "Venetian style" air conditioning... built in an elevated position where there is often a breeze with 80cm thick walls the downstairs living area and middle floor bedrooms can be maintained at cooler temperatures when combined with proper use of the shutters.

Free wireless internet in the house.

Within just a 3 or 10 minutes walk are 2 tavernas, both with great home cooking and a takeout service. There is a supermarket, small corner shop and Ektos bar/cafe which does excellent snacks and meals. There is now a new larger supermarket just on the border of the village under 10 minutes walk away from Amigdalospito.
Several beaches can be reached within a 10 to 15 minute drive in all directions from the house.

'Amigdalospito (Almond House)' is well situated, within 10 minutes drive of the popular and colourful harbour of Fiskardo, and 15 minutes to the picturesque fishing village and small beach of Assos with its imposing Venetian fortress. The famous Myrtos beach is 20 minutes drive away and many other beaches can be reached within a 10/15 minute drive.

Perfect house for a superb family holiday, with 5 star hospitality

By Liz Watson on 17-Aug-2020

Amigdalospito really suits large families and extended groups with lovely outdoor spaces, pool and breathtaking views. The house is well equipped and well located for great tavernas and beautiful small beaches - snorkelling in the warm, turquoise sea. We loved every minute of our stay, made perfect by our wonderfully hospitable, thoughtful and helpful hosts, (who conveniently live next door). I should add that Sue and Karen were very supportive and incredibly patient through the Covid19 roller-coaster-ride as flight bookings were cancelled and dates altered, Their positivity carried us through to our long-awaited and joyful arrival. Sue and Karen seem to know everyone and are happy to make a phone call and get you a discount! - We went on the boat trip with Ionian Discoveries - it was great, we swam with a turtle and Fabio's wife made our son a birthday cake. Our teenagers also had a brilliant time on the Fiskardo Divers, introduction to scuba diving. In summary: Super house, gorgeous location and wonderful people. Needless to say, we did not want to leave.

Delightful

By Andrew on 07-Oct-2019

“Perfect place and people” Reviewed August 3, 2019 for a stay in July 2019 Amigdalospito - Almond House just couldn’t be any better. As a family of three generations - the youngest aged 6 - we were all completely at ease at the house as Sue and Karen worked so hard to make us feel entirely at home. Unlike many other rental properties we found everything we needed. There’s nothing worse than having to get dishwasher tablets, washing powder etc - all the things we just have at home - but we needn’t have worried as it was all provided. There’s even an “honesty” fridge complete with beer, wine, water and soft drinks - great! The accommodation is exceptionally clean and comfortable with en-suite bathrooms to all bedrooms. All towels, pool and beach as well, are included. I just can’t be too fulsome in my praise for the place, and particularly for Sue and Karen. We had a car mishap - the local garage filled one of them with petrol instead of diesel (beware!). Sue immediately went into action and the car was returned from a local mechanic with engine cleaned and tank full of diesel early the next day. What a relief - especially as the garage took responsibility after Sue ‘spoke’ to them! Lots more I could say, but just go and experience it all for yourselves. And we’re going back soon - for the FOURTH time! Date of stay: July 2019 Would you recommend this hotel to a friend? Yes.
