“Stunning, breathtaking...I could go on!!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I have recently had a nine night stay here with a large family group. The location of the villa, with the view it affords, is almost beyond words. Reached via a track giving access to a small number of Greek houses the villa sits high on an elevated position giving breathtaking views across the olive trees to the ocean and surrounding cliffs. At night the sky simply comes alive with stars due to the absence of any light pollution. Any man made sound is absent leaving only birdsong and the jangle of the bells around the goats' necks. The villa easily accommodates a large group arranged on two floors. There is plenty of space outside, with both sun and shade around the pool, with a selection of tables, chairs and sun beds.

The village offers two restaurants, a cafe and two shops for basic supplies. Further a field Fiskardo is a 15 minute drive with additional small villages en-route with tavernas and cafes a plenty. A selection of small, secluded beaches can be reached within a 20 minute drive.

Even including our flight prices, with six paying adults, Fantasia offers quality accommodation with private pool, unrivaled views in a peaceful serene location at a truly affordable price.

The owner's mother lives next door and furnished us with Greek coffee a superb home cooked meal and cleaned the villa throughout twice during our stay. She is often seen tending the gardens and is on hand for any questions you may have - providing you can speak Greek!!!

We shall be returning!!!!

Fantastic views. Wonderful location. walking distance to a few tavernas ( take a torch to find your way back to the villa in the evenings) and a 15 minute drive to Fiskardo.

“Words are not enough.”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We'd driven up to the villa from a few days' stay at a hotel just north of Argostoli. As we approached the village of Vassilikades, a few kilometres south of Fiskardo, I recognised Villa Fantasia on the western edge of the built area and with the aid of a print-out of the Google map, we found our destination.
Arriving in sunshine, (did I say "sunshine"? Kephalonia is lit by the radiant smile of Apollo!) the villa was easy to spot, but I would imagine that in darkness, the task would be harder.
Basically, heading North, take the only left turn there is in the village, up a narrow road. Turn right at the top and then left past the old ruined church. Villa Fantasia is about 200 metres along on the right.
Our children had flown out separately to join us and as we awaited their arrival in the village taverna, we diverted ourselves with a welcome glass of ice-cold Mythos lager.

When all were assembled, we went to the villa itself.
As the cars came to a halt at the bottom of the sloping drive, we tumbled out and the air was filled with "OMG!" "Wow!" "Stunning!" and my own smiling speechlessness as I reflected on the superb choice my wife, Debbie, had made in booking this base for our Kefalonian/Cephalonian/Kephalinian (take your pick) adventure.
As first time visitors to Greece in general and Kefalonia in particular we had already spent a couple of days driving, slack-jawed at the beautiful blues and hues of the island, but nothing had prepared us for the prospect of waking each day to the perfect vista we now beheld.
Reluctantly turning our gaze from the Ionian Sea to the interior of the house we met with the lovely Maria, one of Spyridon's family. She dealt with the formalities and gave us a brief tour of the house, the Wi-Fi access code and the keys, which included the blipper for the electric gates.

With bedrooms duly allocated, it was time to think about food, so whilst the rest unpacked their swimming gear, I scoped out the kitchen. A good-sized fridge with a smallish freezer (plenty of room though for fish, ice cubes and Ouzo!), a dishwasher - dishwasher soapy stuff not provided - a standard domestic electric hob and convection oven, something called a "micro -wave" (not sure what that does), kettle, electric food chopper and a sandwich toaster together with the usual pots and pans, oh and, unusually, a couple of very sharp knives, represent a well-equipped holiday kitchen. A colander or strainer would be a useful addition to the batterie de cuisine, but otherwise little to complain about.

Each room has aircon and the three bedrooms on the upper floor open out onto a balcony facing the sea, which is viewed over a kilometre and a half of woodland. Words can't describe the view. You just have to see it.

If I have any criticisms, they are these: unless we messed it up or didn't know how it worked, there were very few channels of TV available (it would have been quite nice to have a bit of a catch up with world events at the end of the day) and I don't know if an infinity pool would have added to the swimmers' enjoyment, but I'd like to have seen the view from one.

So, to dinner on the verandah, bathed in the golden glow of the setting sun as Erebus prepares to envelop the world in his cloak of darkness. And what darkness! Because the villa is located right on the edge of the village and there is so little light pollution, the stars are amazing, so for romantics or amateur astronomers, really something to see.

On the Sunday, we were presented with a Kefalonian meat pie, a tasty variation on Sunday lunch and later in the week, Spyridon's mother, who lives next door and looks after the plants and flowers on the property, made us a gift of some freshly picked grapes from her own vineyard. Truly delicious!

Villa Fantasia is a great base for exploring Kefalonia, a beautiful island of friendly and generous people, but it's also a great place to spend the day relaxing by the pool. Go there. You'll love it.
