“A gorgeous place to unwind and soak up the Kephalonian way of life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

If you enjoy staying somewhere quirky and are not one for hotels then this is simply the best place in Fiscardo. The house and it's surrounding garden are beautiful and a very tranquil setting just outside (10 mins walk) the lovely little port of Fiscardo. Janet (the owner) is charming and unfailingly helpful - nothing is too much trouble - she managed to rustle up a couple of beach umbrellas for us just for the asking. You can also arrange with Janet to have a breakfast of Greek yoghurt and home-made bread and jams in the garden each morning - what could be a nicer start to the day? Janet was able to give us some excellent tips on what beaches to go to with our toddler. I really felt like we had been staying with a favourite aunt by the time we left!

Peaceful, charming, impeccable house with ensuite rooms, (two with kitchen), near beautiful beach and Fiskardo's glamorous yacht harbour; breakfasts served, on request, by delightful unflappable owner, Janet, in the spacious garden, in dappled shade from olive and other trees and shrubs. Stunning priceless views of surrounding islands from the roof terrace. Also, it's great value in the pricey Fiskardo area.

janets art pension is a very beautiful relaxing place too stay - very personal service from janet who could not have been more helpful and friendly, breakfasts where so nice in the olive garden, janets homemade jams, bacon and egg in fact anything you would like for your breakfast wouldnt have been too much trouble, few minutes walk to nearest beach which is also lovely. I would highly recommend janets for a very relaxing stay in kefalonia

We stayed here for a couple of nights in July 2012. What a beautiful place in amazing surroundings. Lovely room that opened up into a garden filled with olive trees and shrubs. Janet was a great host and we would recommend partaking of her delicious breakfast. A 10 minute walk away is the lovely fiskardo harbour front and a vast selection of great restaurants and bars. If you're feeling adventurous take a walk down to Dafnoudi beach, where the snorkelling is great. Wear sensible shoes and take an umbrella for some shade, though!

We had several nights here with Janet in the July heat wave. Her olive tree garden was a great place to sit and rest in the extreme heat. Janet's breakfasts were also GREAT. A car is useful as it allows you to have a decent look round - public transport is limited. Janet also recommended a "traditional" Kefallonian restaurant as compared with the identikit menus served at the quayside to the visiting yachties. Great place to stay

Lovely location in an olive grove where Janet serves delicious breakfast,room was comfortable and the gorgeous beach and the lovely town centre are a short walk or drive away, the other visitors during our stay were long term return customers and it is easy to see why,
friendly and hospitable.Heartily recommended ,Oh and did I mention the price you will not see better value.

We almost didn't book ourselves into Janet's, purely because the cost was about half what we'd normally expect to pay for accommodation when we go away. But boy, are we glad we did. We loved Kefalonia, we loved Fiscardo, and we loved Janet's. OK, so it's simple, but that's part of its charm. And in every respect that really mattered, it was terrific. The location - 10 minutes walk from the centre of Fiscardo and from a lovelty beach - was excellent; the welcome was warm; the en-suite room was perfectly adequate; freshly prepared breakfasts in the garden were a daily delight; and the view from the roof terrace, across azure waters to the neighbouring islands of Lefka and Ithica, was absolutely stunning. Recommended without hesitation.
