We really enjoyed our holiday in Kefalonia -a truly beautiful island. The accommodation was very traditional which met with most of our requirements and the hosts Sue & Karen, whose accommodation was next door, were warm and welcoming. The position of the villa was excellent for both beaches and sights. The only negative was the lack of air con in...

With reference to the charge for air con in the cottage our prices were set before it was installed, future prices will include the air conditioning.

We cannot recommend Amigdalospito (Almond House) too highly. Wonderful location in a friendly village within easy distance of some exceptional beaches, excellent tavernas and small towns like Fiscardo and Assos. Karen and Sue could not have been more helpful and kind. Almond House is large, comfortable and very well equipped. For a large family party or group of friends, we...

Thank you so much and glad your holiday and special family event went so well.

Best Villa we've stayed at in the Greek Islands. Really well designed and plenty of crockery, glasses, and seating — inside and out. Dishwasher, fridge-freezer, oven all very good. The owners live next door and if we had any queries about the Villa or local beaches, shops etc., they were very happy to help. If you are here when its...

About the neighborhood
Amigdalospito is situated in a village in the unspoilt north of Kefalonia with its hidden coves and quiet beaches. Fiscardo is very popular with the yachting fraternity and a great place to walk around the harbour, visit the many small shops and cafes or sit on the harbour side. Hire a small boat for the day and explore the small northern beaches and snorkel in the beautiful clear waters. Assos has an imposing Venetian fortress and small beach, ideal for exploring or swimming. The famous Myrtos beach is especially stunning when viewed from the northern cliffs on the road above. Agia Efimia is about 20 mins drive away and also good for sailing, diving and snorkelling with many excellent tavernas along the harbour. Our nearest local beaches of Agia Jerousalim and Alaties have amazing swimmin... more
