Fiscardo, Kefalonia


Fiscardo was what we had been waiting for. Argostoli was fun but somehow arriving in Fiscardo felt like we have finally arrived in Greece. It is picture perfect. Water front restaurants, crystal blue sea and blossom everywhere. (As a side note, just prepare yourself for just a fraction of the hundred of photographs I took of the bougainvillea.)




Fiscardo is extra special as it was virtually untouched by earthquake that hit Kefalonia is 1953, meaning that a lot of the buildings in the village remain some of the most historic on the island.




Where did we stay?
We stayed at Villa Romantza, which I would absolutely recommend. The rooms are simple but Vaso, the landlady, is lovely. She offered to do our washing (free of charge) and couldn't be more welcoming. Villa Romantza is a 2 minute walk from the centre of Fiscardo. 

How long for?
3 nights but we absolutely could have stayed longer.

What did we do?
We ate - a lot. I couldn't even list all of the restaurants that we visited but some that stood out:
Nicolas Taverna - the lamb is incredible.
Tassia - such a lovely setting.
Panormos - great views to enjoy with a cocktail




Fiscardo is one of the most popular stops for people who are sailing around the island. Ferries come in and out of the harbour daily and it can get quite busy without the feeling of being overcrowded. Still, the harbour is so pretty you can still find a quiet spot to watch the world go by.





One day, we travelled by ferry to a nearby island Lefkada, passing the island of Meganisi.


Another day, possibly one of the best of the holiday, was spent on a boat, zipping between Kefalonia and Ithaca. We rented a boat from Regina, and I would recommend it. She was very helpful and provided everything we needed for a fabulous day at sea.


I don't know what was better, spending so much time by the water or sitting in the gorgeous harbour watching the world go by. Either way, we were sad when our time in Fiscardo was over. We spent our last day on one of the nearby (and very rocky) beaches, trying to soak up the last bit of Fiscardo that we could.



Fiscrdo...we'll see you again!
