“Kalokeri- A bit basic and tired”
Reviewed October 26, 2009

We were in second floor apartment with a great view over Fiskardo port and looking towards Ithaca.
Sadly the weather was so poor for much of the week we were often grounded through rain and wind. It is then that you find how basic the accommodation is. There is a basic kitchenette with no microwave. The shower is dated and the hot water must be on a timer as it was often was tepid. The bed is so hard and uncomfortable and there are no comforts like tv, cd/ dvd player hair drier or washing machine that we have in resort/timeshare these days.
Whilst we wouldn't normally need all of these luxuries as we would be out most of the time we wouldn't re-visit this accommodation until it had a make-over and update. Putting everything in perspective though we were impressed by the organisation of Ionian holidays. Their staff were 'on the ball' and knowledgeable.

We've just returned from a week staying in the Kalokeri Apartments near Fiscardo and really enjoyed our stay. The apartments have an amazing view over Fiscardo, which more than makes up for them being on the basic side. We were lucky to be on the top floor, so try asking for this floor when you book for the best views.The Emlissi beach is a 10 minutes walk away - it's a pebbly beach so rubber shoes to swim in or flippers are a good idea. Or lay on one of the rocks at the side of the beach for more comfort. We really enjoyed snorkeling here.

Right opposite the apartments is the fantastic Panorama Taverna - it's good wholesome Greek food, and cheaper than you'll find in Fiscardo. The taverna might not look brilliant from the outside but is definitely worth trying out - and asking what's on special.

There are some good restaurants in Fiscardo, our favourite was Lord Falcon, a Thai restaurant tucked around the back. We also ate a good paella at Eli's the first restaurant you come to in Fiscardo. Shopping here isn't cheap even with the end of season 20% sales.

If you want a special meal in a contemporary setting, head to the Emelisse hotel - again it's not cheap, but a romantic enjoyable evening.

We booked a last minute week direct with Ionian Island Holidays who were offering a great discount on their web page which we took along with a repeat customer discount after we travelled to Kioni, Ithaca in July .
We chose the Kalokeri appartments after we noticed them whilst staying at the Emelisse Art Hotel in Fiskardo, and thought the view and position was excellent.
Kalokeri stands on the main road about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Fiskardo harbour and 10 minutes from Emblissi beach in the other direction. The view we had from the top floor was absolutley fantastic at any time of the day, watching the yachts come and go in the harbour, and Ithaca beyond. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was clean spacious and offered a great little kitchen area.
There is also a private pool for guests, which we thought seemed more popular for the guests with children, we prefered to walk to the 2 local pebble beaches or the one called Foki which was a good 25/30 min walk or a 6min drive.
The other nice touch with these appartments was the inclusion of a car for 3 days either at the start or the end of the week. They deliver and collect them to and from the car park at the side of the appartments.
Over all these appartments provided us with a quality location, fantastic views and a very enjoyable holiday in Fiskardo which we love for a great holiday and will be returning most likely next year.
