Perched on a hillside with an amazing panorama across treetops of the dense Cypress forests and out to the shimmering cobalt blue of the Ionian Sea, Villa Persephone is an idyllic place to unwind and soak up the sun. Designed with outdoor living in mind, comfortable mattress-topped sunloungers surround the swimming pool, and there is a choice of places to dine al fresco. Inside, a wonderful open plan living space is on offer, cleverly furnished with a mixture of contemporary and traditional making it feel homely and welcoming. Naturally, the villa is air conditioned throughout, and the three bedrooms each have the convenience of an ensuite bathroom. Despite its location which has quite a rural feel, Villa Persephone is just 1.2km from village amenities, 2.5km from the beach and 4km from the many excellent restaurants in Fiscardo. Fiscardo is a very pretty harbour side village but very cosmopolitan with chic boutiques and super yachts in the harbour!
Usual day is Sundays.
Mid-May - Mid-September is fixed, flexible at any other times.

Kefalonia International Airport (EFL)
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.
Villa Persephone is a beautiful villa, with spectacular views and sunsets. The owner is lovely and not intrusive at all, sorted out the wifi within the day (which was a good reception); let us know that we had a mid week maid service, where they changed all the bedding and towels for fresh ones. You will need a hire car to access the Villa and explore the surroundings (very impressed with the company Solmar Villas arranged for us, met at the airport with the car ready). The drive from the airport to the Villa is not for the faint hearted, roughly an hour and a half with steep cliff-drops and bends, so be prepared if not a confident driver abroad. Villa location is remote, there is a lovely hidden beach 2 mins drive away, small supermarket about 2 mins drive and the main resort of Fiskardo about 5 minutes drive, lots of nice restaurants, little gift shops and access to boat hire (thoroughly recommend) but if you want to explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia and the main resorts you will have to drive back down nearer the airport end to do so as over an hour away from Skala and Sami.

Lovely well appointed villa, fantastic views in a quite but interesting part of the Island with some spectacular scenery. What could be better than an early morning swim in the infinity pool listening to the goats bells as they set off for the daily graze.
Wed 22 Jun 2022
The villa was in a beautiful location, comfortable, with great facilities and very well presented. There is a very good taverna (The Old Stone House) within a 5 minute walk, while all the restaurants of Fiskardo are only a short drive away. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a very relaxing two weeks, and would definitely return.

Absolutely loved our stay at Villa Penelope, great service from Solmar from start to finish and Angelina was a perfect host. We could have asked for more- thoroughly recommend.

Villa Persephone is a beautiful villa, very clean & felt instantly homely and relaxing. Location is slightly remote as definitely need your car to access, but this wasn't an issue at all, and as with other Villa's we have stayed in, it is without doubt part of the charm of Kefelonia. The Villa has a lovely terrace and outside area, and offers some of the best sea views and evening sunsets we've seen in Kefelonia. It's situated a short drive from Fiscardo harbour (5 mins max), which itself offers an endless selection of restaurants & bars. It's a lovely harbour, and a must if you are a boating enthusiast. Overall this Villa and location to Fiscardo comes highly recommended by us, and we will definitely be returning soon.

This lovely villa is in a great spot to explore the north of Kefalonia. The pool area and outside space are lovely and have beautiful views of the forest and sea. The villa is situated down a small track so it is incredibly quiet. There is another villa right next door but it is very well screened with trees so you have privacy. Short drive (5 mins) into gorgeous Fiscardo with its many cafes and restaurants.

Great villa with good views
Wed 24 Jul 2019
Villa Persephone was a quiet and comfortable haven for relaxation. Interrupted only by the gentle bells of the nearby goat herd and the cicadas we could truly relax. The spacious and comfortable villa was in immaculate condition and the infinity pool was a blessing in the hot Greek sun. Car hire and flights all worked very well and as always Solmar villas delivered a lovely holiday!

Persephone is a lovely villa with stunning views across to the sea and beautiful sunset. Close to the idyllic harbour town of Fiskardo.

On our arrival at the villa it was everything we expected. There are quite a number of steps up to the villa but this only enhances the spectacular view from the terrace out to the sea (although this might make it unsuitable for young families). The villa is well decorated and clean with everything you would need. It's only a short stroll into the village with a couple of restaurants and shops with beautiful Fiscardo a five minute drive away. We would definitely recommend Villa Persephone and will be booking again in the future.

Wow! Beautiful villa, spacious and tastefully decorated with all modern appliances, very comfy beds and spotlessly clean.Loved the views from the patio over olive groves and woods to the sea and the peace and quiet. Villa is very private and not overlooked by neighbouring properties. Fabulous infinity pool, big enough for a proper swim and great to swim with a view! Villa is only a 5 minute walk back up the track to the village at Antipata with a village shop, which sold more or less everything you could need, a great family run taverna and a lovely breakfast/lunch cafe. Only a short drive to lovely safe beaches for swimming and snorkelling.

The villa was perfect for our needs. My daughter and her family occupied the upper floor bedrooms and my husband and I used the downstairs bedroom. The beds were really comfortable. Everything in the villa was of a very high standard and you could tell that a lot of thought had been put into it. However the overriding feature was the views. Wherever you were in the villa and particularly from the infinity pool, the views were spectacular. We met the owner.when the pool was cleaned and she was lovely. It wasn't a problem for us but the villa was located along anicely out of the way track, but this only added to.its appeal. No traffic or people noise!! So peaceful and relaxing
