Fiscardo, an utterly idyllic harbour village located in the north of the island simply oozes charm and is particularly popular with discerning travellers seeking a quiet, relaxing holiday in a picture postcard setting.
The neighbouring hamlets and villages (Vassiliki, Maganos and Antipata to name but a few) surrounding Fiscardo offer fabulous views of the magical and Mythical Ithaca, literally a hop, skip & jump away, and along with the numerous idyllic little coves scattered around this region, one can easily understand why this magnetic destination attracts a ridiculously high number of repeat guests each year. The exquisite seaside village of Assos can also be found nearby, yet another of the Erissos peninsulas charming and iconic gems. Its jumble of tiny houses with their colourful bougainvillea clad façades, are a photographers dream and there are spectacular views from its elevated Venetian castle, well worth the scenic 45 minute stroll!
As for Fiscardo itself, Pastel painted harbour front cottages with their traditional brightly coloured shutters reveal picture-postcard views of the harbour and Ithaca beyond. This really is an amazing place to indulge in a spot of people watching, as the harbour front café’s and restaurants are regularly filled with celebrities who frequently hop over on their little tender boats from their vast and insanely expensive yachts and motor cruisers.
