Villa Lithia, near Fiscardo, Kefalonia, Greece - Villa Lithia close to Fiscardo and Foki and Emblissi Beach
Why Robert Avaient chose Erisos
Annmarie and Bob fell in love with Kefalonia on a holiday to Fiscardo in 1995. They loved the island so much that they bought the land and had Villa Lithia built as a holiday home. It has been their much loved family home to them over the past 12 years. The view every morning still takes one's breath away, the tranquil setting in the hamlet of Katsarata amongst the olive trees has never been spoiled. Kefalonia is an unspoiled haven. The people are wonderful. The beaches are fantastic. It is truly Greek, but with a slight cosmopolitan twist. Annmarie and Bob now reside back in the UK and all banking transactions are conducted in GBP via a Barclays Bank plc UK. They would like all to enjoy their privately owned piece of paradise.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is away from the hustle and bustle, but not far from the chic harbour resort of Fiscardo (8 minute drive). It is also only 2km from two tavernas and two mini-markets. The property has spectacular views over the Ionian sea. Totally private pool area. The main house sleeps 4 persons, with a seperate guest house for 2 persons.

Beautiful villa with stunning views!
We have just returned from our two week stay at Villa Lithia and would highly recommend. The villa offers everything you need to make your stay comfortable and is well equipped. It was cleaned regularly providing fresh linen and towels and the pool was well maintained. The view from the terrace is stunning - it’s very relaxing to sit and watch the boats coming and going, whilst listening to the tinkling of the sheep and goat bells in the distance! Lots of lovely eating places in Fiscardo which was only a ten minute drive away and a couple of small shops and tavernas in the nearby village which was only a fifteen minute walk. Bob made the booking process easy and always answered all our questions promptly. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would love to return again some day.
We are so pleased Lithia was all you expected and you had a wonderful holiday, we hope to welcome you back in the near future.
great house, beautiful location
stunning views. great walks from the door to the best swimming coves imaginable. lovely rooms and well equipped.
Many thanks for the kind review we are so pleased you had a great time in Lithia and hope to welcome you back in the very near future.
We've just returned from an 11 day stay from this fab villa and already know we'll be back there!
Amazing views, fantastic pool area - with umbrellas if shade is needed, wifi, well equipped kitchen, comfy bed and air conditioning. Basically everything you need.
Fiskardo is a 45 minute walk through some wooded area and path - it's hilly on the way home! The most amazing beaches are a short drive away .... the colour of the water is breathtaking.
Thanks Bob for all your help. Oh - and for future visitors, given Paul the cat an extra cuddle from me. I am not a cat person (more of a dog person) but Paul is such a cutey!
Already looking forward to the next visit. :-)
Handy tip - we arrived very late at night - Bob gives great directions, but we found it just fine by putting Katsarata into Google Maps and then following Bob's excellent directions from there.
So glad you had a great time at Lithia and we hope to welcome you back in the near future.
A Fantastic Brilliant and perfect place.
Just returned from a fantastic week at Villa Lithia. The villa was well furnished and equipped with everything I could think of right down to hairdryers and conversion plugs, the cleaner came in twice while I was there to do a big clean and change the linen and I have to say the property was spotless. Loads of places to sit and eat and a large pool and deck to sunbathe, the front veranda has a large pergola when a bit of shade is necessary and also has a large table and chairs, the views over to Ithaca are among the best on the island and change daily with the yachts and motor boats leaving Fiscardo.
We had no difficulty finding the villa thanks to very accurate driving directions from Bob Avaient the owner who also sorted out our car hire, and any questions we had before we left about the area or villa were answered promptly and with a great degree of local knowledge. With a couple of tavernas within walking distance and Fiscardo a 4 minute drive away we were never short of somewhere to eat or just sit with a coffee and watch island life go by, trips to Assos and Ithaca are a great day out.
My security was returned quickly with no fuss and I would certainly recommend this property to anyone.
Many thanks for the review and we hope to welcome you back to Kefalonia in the near future.
Wonderful villa in an ideal location!
Villa Lithia is lovely, the facilities are excellent and it is in a beautiful position with fantastic views and convenient also to get to local beaches and restaurants too, either in nearby villages or in Fiscardo where there is a larger selection of restaurants in the harbour area. There is a small supermarket nearby and larger ones in nearby Fiscardo too, which is about 15 minutes drive away. The villa is kept very clean and the pool cleaned regularly too. We would definitely recommend Villa Lithia to our family and friends and most certainly will be returning. Bob was wonderful and made booking this villa very easy, he was so helpful. He also helped us sort out a hire car too which was great and gave us some recommendations for local beaches, restaurants etc too, which we found very useful.
Many thanks for the kind review and we hope to welcome you back to Kefalonia in the near future.
Greek Island Retreats
Simply the best
This was our third time at Lithia and perhaps the best so far. The property probably has the best views in Cephalonia down across the pine forests and across the channel to Ithaca. You can spend the whole day watching Ithaca change as the sun moves across the sky.
The villa is beautifully appointed and very well equipped. There is even Wi-Fi. The bedrooms are cool (air-conditioned) and the whole property clean and tidy. There is a twice weekly maid service with fresh sheets and clean towels.
The pool area is private and sheltered and a real suntrap.
Location is superb with a 10 minute drive to the beautiful harbour of Fiskado which has a wealth of Tavernas, restaurants and shops. You are also within 20minutes of all of the best beaches at the north of the island.
The owners, Bob and Anne Marie are fantastic. they sorted out hiring a yacht and the Marine Adventure trip (look on Trip Adviser-it's brilliant).
We travelled as a party of 6 with three children and a grandmother. The annex which is separate from the main house but equally as well fitted out, was perfect for the mother in law.
I cant recommend Lithia enough. The only problem is that you have to return home and leave it all behind. I have been depressed since. We have already booked a week next year.
Always a real pleasure to have guests that become friends, see you next year.
