We have just returned from a week staying at the Alexanna Apartments, near Fiskardo, we were in the apartment called "Terpis". This was a late booking so we had the last room available, which was very clean and had everything we needed plus a large balcony, with a small glimpse of the sea acrross to Ithaka. We would have preferred an apartment with a better view, however, this did not spoil our stay in anyway. Rownenna the owner who met us on the first day is a delightful lady and more than willing to help in anyway. The apartments were particularly quiet during our stay even though full, and more often than not we had the beautiful pool to oursleves. The Alexanna Apartments are in a rural location, we felt as if we were in the real Kefalonia, not a tourist resort. A car is really necessary while staying here as its about a 10 minute drive or so to Fiskardo, although there are a couple of supermarkets within a few minutes drive for any shopping required. We were able to buy everything we needed for our stay from one of the supermarkets even though it was quite small. There are also two other villages on the way to Fiskardo with restaurants too. Fiskardo has so many restaurants its hard to choose where to go, but we visited Elli's and Nicholas, we also liked to eat at the little taverna in Foki Bay, which is just in a stunning location. There are plenty of little shops, bars and restaurants in Fiskardo to wonder around, its a lovely location to visit. Beautiful bays to swim in, pebbles not sand, great for snorkelling.
The only thing I would mention about "Terpis" is that there are a lot of trees around the balcony, which marr the view somewhat, and over hang the balcony a little, this may not appeal to everyone, although it was fine for us. The balcony was not overlooked we felt it was private enough for us. We were privalidged to see a Pine Marten from the balcony, which apprently are quite hard to find. We would definately recommend a stay here and would go back again!
By the way, the weather was fantastic, really hot, I mean really hot!!!!!
