Venetia Parisi, a Kefalonian through and through, and beautifully named after two famous European cities, Venice and Paris – the former, ruler of the Ionian islands for over 400 years, leaving a lasting legacy – welcomes you to her family home

Her father, Alexandros Parisis – a passionate Kefalonian –  is former Kefalonian Member of the Greek Parliament, the President of the Ionian Islands Municipalities Union, and Mayor of Kefalonia for the past 6 years.

 

Theatrically positioned on a mountain side, Casa Nobile has sweeping panoramic views of the sea – a mere 700 metres away – enjoying incredible sunsets on the wide expanse of horizon. Despite it being a contemporary villa with all modern conveniences, original elements of the original Venetian house have been preserved, such as the window and door to the kitchen, the “cave” on the ground floor where the family’s animals used to sleep, and the wine press – all of whom’s history anchors the property to the traditions of the island.

 

Casa Nobile is a spacious house ideal for a large family, groups of friends, or simply a couple wishing to get away from it all. Fitted to a high standard with all modern conveniences, it is tastefully decorated with a selection of antique furniture – many of which are heirloom pieces – and welcoming bathrooms finished with cool brushed concrete walls and beautifully painted floor tiles, making this villa a real home-from-home.

Casa Nobile is a restorative paradise to where you can escape the world. Come and immerse yourself in its tranquility. Let the sounds of the bird chirps and distant goat bells relax your mind. Marvel at the saturated greens and bright colours of the flowers. Lose yourself in the deep blues and translucent turquoise waters of the sea. Bathe in the sun which washes down out of the bright blue sky.

 

Loved by Mr Parisis, and enjoyed by at least 5 generations of his family – both past and present, Venetia Parisi, opens up the very heart of this house and wishes you as happy holidays as those that she, her parents and children have spent over the years, here.

 

The beautiful, buzzing, cosmopolitan fishing village of Fiskardo is only 8km away – a mere 12 minute drive down quiet country roads! Wander around the harbour front, let yourself be tempted in the boutiques, sip a cool glass whilst watching people pass and yachts glide in, and dine in a variety of restaurants and tavernas. There is also the whole of the rest of the island to explore from all its varied facets! Beautiful beaches galore, archeological finds, tempting tavernas, vanishing vistas…

 

The property is available for large wedding parties.

About the owner

Venetia Parisi, a Kefalonian through and through, and beautifully named after two famous European cities, Venice and Paris – the former, ruler of the Ionian islands for over 400 years, leaving a lasting legacy – welcomes you to her family home. This, her great-grandmother’s house, has been loving rebuilt by her father, Alexandros Parisis – a passionate Kefalonian – former Kefalonian Member of the Greek Parliament, the President of the Ionian Islands Municipalities Union, and Mayor of Kefalonia for the past 6 years.

 

Although brought up in Athens to where he and his family had migrated in the 1950’s and where he forged a successful business career, Mr Parisis’s heart had remained in Kefalonia where he can trace his roots back to the Venetian rule. In 1997 he made the decision to rebuild his grandmother’s house in which he was born and raised as a child, and one of the original 5 houses of the hamlet of Lavonikes set in 14 acres of land up on a hillside amongst stunning natural surroundings just 8km from beautiful, cosmopolitan Fiskardo.

 

Preserving what he could from the ruins, Mr Parisis has built a house that would make the most of it’slocation overlooking the sea. His eye for aesthetics has continued inside where he has decorated Casa Nobile with some exquisite antique furniture, and outside where over the years he has planted a lush garden with numerous plants, fruit trees and flowers.
