It is rare to find a small private accommodation for 2 people in a perfectly peaceful position enclosed by 5000m2 of private land and garden, within short walking distance of the busy and cosmopolitan Fiskardo and at only 50 meters from the nearest swimming spot. It’s even unique.
The house is compact (48m2) and consists of one large bedroom, a bathroom, a living room and a well equipped kitchen. There are two large terraces with amazing views and the shore is so close that you can hear the music of the sea.
The wonderfully located Amaryllis House has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Simple traditional furnishings are brought to life with some lovely imaginative touches giving it a real home-from-home charm. Doors from the living area lead out onto the two glorious private terrace with spectacular views across the water to Ithaca, legendary home of Odysseus. There is plenty of room to lie back and dream of the Greek Gods or to sit and enjoy a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner under the stars. The beautiful gardens surrounding Amaryllis House, are brimming with colour: bougainvillea, plumbago and geranium tumble into one another, all lovingly tended by the owner, giving the place an authentically Kefalonian feel.
However, the real beauty of Amaryllis House is its proximity to the pretty fishing village of Fiskardo, with its tempting array of shops, bars and waterfront tavernas, just a 5-minute walk away. Swimming and snorkelling are possible from the rocky shoreline at 50 m below the property; or wander along to the enchanting Foki beach, just a 10-minute stroll away, this idyllic spot is fringed with olive and cypress trees. There is so much on your doorstep, even the possibility of hiring a boat and exploring the numerous beaches and coves that are a feature of this beautiful coastline
There is no need for a car at Amaryllis House
If rented together with the neighbouring Manona’s Suite, Amaryllis House, provides the perfect venue for a mixed generation or two couple holiday.
My Name is Amaryllis-Lynda and I am the owner of Amaryllis House and Manona Suite. I was born in Athens and lived there for most of my adult life. However, I have always loved nature and became desperate to escape from the noise and pollution of the big and bustling city. My parents were originally from Fiscardo and I remembered from childhood visits that Fiscardo was the Paradise I craved. In 1999, I made the life changing decision to leave Athens and return to the land of my ancestors. Here, I’m happy to say, I found the peace and balance I had been missing. I could enjoy fresh air, healthy food, fantastic scenery and amazing walks.
Luckily, our family plot was in a fantastic position – with amazing views and close to the sea, the village and the beach. It was here that I decided to rebuild my parents house and I created Amaryllis and Manona.
It soon became my dream to join the Kefalonia spirit of hospitality and share the utopia I had found.
For 10 years, in co-operation with a large British Tour operator, I welcomed guests and was rewarded by their positive feedback and happy smiles as they made the same discoveries I had made years before.
After gaining so much experience, I decided I would like to manage my property independently and allow guests to arrange their stay directly. Now, with the help of Catherine, a professional who runs the small and popular La French Touch Fiscardo, I welcome you to come and experience this truly magical place.
