Villa Mandola, Tzamarelata, Fiscardo

Free wifi


Finished in plaster of a sugary rose hue the colour of the Kefalonian coated almond sweets, after which this Villa is named, and framed by hand cut stone corners, this imposing  square Villa holds prime position at the far end of a lane. From this vantage point, the views of green forested hillsides descending into the bluest of sea where white cliffs  highlight  the north coast of the Luxouri Peninsular, fall nothing short of jaw dropping.


Within its  walls, Villa Mandola is ideal for those who have a preference for large spaces, those who like to stretch out and feel unrestricted. Throughout it  is bright, light and with an expanse of well proportioned living space, more than elbowroom for twice the number of people for which there are be. 


The kitchen occupies the ‘short’ end of an L shaped open plan living room, an island unit separating it from  the dining and sitting areas. This well organised work space is suitably equipped for holiday catering with a large fridge freezer, ceramic hob and electric oven, microwave and dishwasher.  When dining in, the purpose built barbecue is close by at the front of the Villa.   


From the classically furnished living and dining areas French doors open to the stone paved  terrace which surrounds the 8m x 4m pool and which in its turn is surrounded by the wonderland scenery. The terrace is furnished for outside living with sunbeds, tables and chairs and a rattan sofa and easy chairs. 


There is a guest WC on the ground floor with a washing machine.


Atop the marble staircase, each of the  three bedrooms at first floor level have vaulted wood ceilings and a balcony to step out onto in the morning for those who need  reassurance that those sea views weren’t just a passing dream. They also happen to have a pretty spectacular sunset view  later in the day.


The very spacious double bedroom and both twin bedrooms each has an ensuite shower room  with walk in shower with rain forest shower head, wash basin and WC 

Located at the edge of the tiny village of Tzamarelata in northern Kefalonia, the picturesque harbour of Fiscardo is approx 10 minutes drive away. Closer, at 1.5km, is the village of Magganos, with two excellent mini markets  and tavernas. 


On the coast below the Villa, via a winding route, the tiny beach of Alikies is a delightful spot for sea bathing and although the tables at the taverna on the rocks just above the beach are often fully booked for 'the best' sunset views, this won’t worry the guests at Villa Mandola who have their own private, poolside sunset view table.

Location of Villa Mandola
Fiscardo Area, Kefalonia

This picturesque Venetian fishing harbour has, of recent years, become a fashionable stopping point for some of the smarter pleasure boats sailing the Ionian. Fishing boats, selling freshly caught fish in the mornings will be seen tied up cheek by jowl along the harbour front with the most indulgent of sailing boats, play things of the rich and occasionally, famous .

A choice of excellent quayside tavernas, serving fresh fish and other traditional fare, make good vantage points to keep an eye on the comings and goings in the harbour.

Amazing Views
"We (a retired Canadian couple) spent a week in this lovely Villa with our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren. The space was as described - with lots of room for everyone. The villa was clean and check in went smoothly. The kitchen was well equipped (although a toaster would be a nice addition) and large dining table made it possible for us to eat breakfasts and some dinners in. The local host responded quickly to the one request we had. The outdoor space was beautiful and had we had better weather - we would have made more use of the pool and outdoor eating area. The views, rural setting and sunsets were amazing. As other visitors note - you will need a car to explore the beautiful island. We can highly recommend Villa Mandola for extended family and group visits. Thanks for everything"
Katrin E
Very stylish spacious villa
" Translation: Very stylish spacious villa with pool and breathtaking views of the sea. Beautiful beaches nearby and the picturesque fishing village of Fiskardo with excellent, if not cheap restaurants around the harbor. Heavenly peace and exclusive flair - highly recommended! "
Katrin E
Sehr stilvolle großzügige Villa
"Sehr stilvolle großzügige Villa mit Pool und atemberaubendem Blick auf das Meer. Wunderschöne Strände in der Nähe und das pittoreske Fischerdörfchen Fiskardo mit hervorragenden, wenngleich nicht ganz billigen Restaurants rund um den Hafen. Himmlische Ruhe und exklusives Flair - sehr empfehlenswert!"
Fantastic Holiday
"We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday (6 of us - age ranged from 16-76) at Villa Mandola. Lovely large open plan living inside the Villa and a great pool area . Fantastic sea views from the pool and bedroom balconies. 10 min drive into the beautiful harbour town of Fiscardo with plenty of restaurants to choose from, great ice cream parlour and shops to wander around. Regina's Motor Boat hire was great and we were well looked after by them and a fun day out on the water for all the family. Local beaches visited were Agia Jerusalem, Antiles, Foki and Emblisie ,Magannos the small local village has two very good mini markets and a very good restaurant that has live Greek Music & Dance on a Wednesday night and also the Stone House Taverna in Andipata was very good. Assos is well worth a visit but go early - we were there for 8am had breakfast on the harbour front before walking up to the fort before it got too hot. We had a great family holiday"
Great Villa !
"Great villa. Huge! Pool was lovely. Very peaceful position with lovely sea views. Can’t fault it!”"
Spectacular Sea Views
"Great view, good location. The villa is well kitted out. The price is competitive and the view over the sea is spectacular."
Very Impressed
"We very much we enjoyed our holiday at Villa Mandola. The house was perfectly situated close to all the north shore beaches and just a 10 minute drive to to Fiscardo . We all loved the pool and was very impressed with how well appointed the house was with all the stuff one needs for a family of 5 on vacation. Thanks also for your help in making everything so easy. Well done, we look forward to re visiting soon. Many thanks again."
Sally and family
"Villa mandola is a great choice on the island of kefalonia, the location is perfect. Close to fiskardo and some great beaches. The local taverna on the closest beach to the villa (details in the villa) is a stunning location and the food is amazing. We had a great evening of Greek music at the taverna magganos, very near the villa. The villa itself was lovely, with spectacular views, it is very private and not overlooked by anyone. It was cleaned every few days throughout our stay which was lovely. We hope to come back one day. Thank you all"
Everything we could need
"The freelance team were great to deal with, the villa location was good, and had all the facilities we could possibly need."
Sugar & Spice & all things nice!
"We have been to Kefalonia 5 times now & Villa Mandola near Fiskardo was by far the most pleasurable. The villa is about a 10 minute drive from the port of Fiskardo or a 15 euro taxi ride, there are also a few restaurants in the nearby village of Maganos. Internally it's hard to fault both in size & amenities. I would highly recommend this accommodation."
Fantastic Villa
"A fantastic stay, the villa exceeded our expectations. Diane was very helpful and responded quickly to any enquiries. The surrounding area is very beautiful and the house is perfectly positioned for the best beaches."
Absolutely beautiful!
"We had a great stay the area and Villa were absolutely beautiful! We would definitely come back again to Villa Mandola! "
