Description

You pay NO BOOKING FEES when booked using this web-site and get free payment protection.

New for 2020 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 the shade of the Umbrella pine tree in the day and for those 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 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 Vasilikades (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. 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

“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!

A fantastic week at Amigdalospito. The house is spacious and thoughtfully equipped to a particularly high standard. The outside space is equally thoughtful with different seating areas in sun and shade for enjoying the beautiful views. The owners, Karen and Sue, are clearly passionate about the house and Kefalonia and are the perfect hosts; hugely helpful when needed but very unobtrusive otherwise. The house is set above the village of Vasilikades virtually equidistant between the east and west coasts with several beautiful beaches within a 10/15 minute drive. Spending days discovering the beaches and then retreating to the slightly cooler and fresher air of Amigdalospito was an unexpected joy. Even in August it was possible to sleep very comfortably without a/c or electric fans. As the owners' description makes clear the many steps and varying levels internally and externally make the property unsuitable for anybody with limited mobility. For anybody else who wants more than an identikit antiseptic villa this is just perfect.

“A beautiful, comfortable villa, with character and history”

“A beautiful, comfortable villa, with character and history”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recently stayed at Amigdalospito with a group of friends, and count ourselves fortunate to have found such a charming house at short notice, which we can only attribute to its relatively recent listing on Trip Advisor.
Amigdalospito is situated a short stroll above the centre of the village of Vasilikiades, in northern Kefalonia, with beautiful views across the countryside. The property has several levels, each with a different aspect - you can just see the sea from the swimming pool terrace - and provides great opportunities for socialising with a group or escaping to a quiet corner to read a book. We found it the perfect place to unwind.
The history of the building is apparent everywhere, from the wine press in the living room floor, to the former threshing circle which now provides a circular lawn with seats. Talk to the very approachable owners and they will tell you of their work over many years to restore and update the property.
We took the entire property for a week, including the small annexe which is sometimes let separately. All the bedrooms were ensuite, comfortable and well equipped. Being a traditional house with thick walls and shutters, the rooms stayed relatively cool during day and night, so air conditioning was not needed. The kitchen / living / dining room is open plan and also well equipped. Personal touches were everywhere, with helpful notes and a guide to local attractions, beaches and the two excellent village tavernas.
Our favourite beach was Alaties, 10 minutes drive north, which had crystal clear waters, excellent snorkelling, and a super taverna with an Italian twist.
If you stay, ask about Jamie's boat trips from Fiskardo (15 minutes north) - a fun and informative way to spend a day.
Would love to stay at the villa again, and definetly recommend for those like us who can't abide the notion of a sterile packaged holiday box / experience.
