Built in 2001, Alto Mare is nestled on a hillside surrounded by lush natural Kefalonian vegetation. The sunset views from this villa are quite spectacular. Within 5 minutes walking distance is the small Alaties beach, with beautiful clear water, natural sea salt pools and a charming taverna. The harbour village of Fiscardo is just 8km away.

In 2020 the villa was extensively re-furbished. Electric roller shutters have been installed in the living room. The bedrooms have been completey renovated with the addition of walk-in shower rooms, new lighting and high quality mattresses.
Outside, the infinity pool has beautiful new tiles.

The name ‘Alto Mare’ means open sea in Italian. Italy is 200 miles directly in front of the villa, across the open sea.
The villa has a stylish and chic contemporary interior design with all modern amenities. Outside, furnishings are in teak wood and rattan with 300 square meters of teak decking to relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets and offers total privacy to ensure a relaxing experience.

Altomare Villa is the perfect holiday home for those seeking a combination of luxury and seclusion but with amenities that are easily accessible.

 

“The tastefully furnished interiors provide a comfortable and relaxing environment”

Alto Mare Villa offers a perfect combination of design and style. The villa has been thoughtfully constructed to make the most of the exceptional location and surroundings. The panoramic sea views and spectacular sunsets are beautifully framed by the large picture window, whilst the eclectic furnishings complement the light and spacious interiors.

The interior furniture, a tasteful combination of Bauhaus and original old Balinese pieces. This adds a sense of style and comfort, not usually found in holiday accommodation.

The main entrance to the villa is on the upper level, directly into the 80 m² living room with huge picture window allowing a commanding view of the seascape and magnificent sunsets. From here there is direct access to the upper teak terraces and main swimming pool. The fully equipped kitchen and guest cloakroom are also on this level.

The lower garden level can be accessed via the internal staircase and also from a separate entrance outside. On this level you will find 4 double bedrooms, each with an amazing sea view. There is also a small office room and library. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and two share a very large bathroom. All bedrooms have air conditioning, wooden floors, double beds and extensive views.

From this level there is direct access to the garden terrace and 2nd swimming pool.

“300 square meters of teak decking, abundant with outdoor furniture, ensures that visitors can enjoy outdoor living to the full”

The views from Alto Mare are incredible and it is therefore no surprise that the layout of the extensive terraces and facilities, take full advantage of this

There are two swimming pools – one on each level. The main infinity pool is newly tiled and located on the upper level. This measures 8 metres x 4 metres and can be accessed directly from the main sitting room.
The garden level pool is located on the lower terrace and can be directly accessed from the bedroom terraces.

To ensure that guests are always comfortable, there are shaded sitting and eating areas as well as an abundance of outside furniture and umbrellas. These include rattan chairs with cushions, stylish teak loungers and upright chairs.

French Lady Owner

Built in 2001

About the Owner

I ran a successful restaurant business in Fiscardo from the early 1990s. It took me some time to locate the perfect plot to build my home, but I finally found it and finished building Villa Alto-Mare in 2001.

After selling my small business, I took a break and spent amazing long Summers with family and friends in this exceptional setting. I decided to rent the villa in 2008 and it’s success was immediate. Holidaymakers fell in love with my house and 70% of those who now rent it are returning guests!

I am still able to make the most of my place in the Autumn and early Spring, and in the Summer I live 5 km away on the east coast. I potter around the coves in my little speedboat, and enjoy an excellent quality of life in this magical place. But, to tell you the truth, I do miss my stunning Summer sunsets at Alto Mare…

A little about Kefalonia……………..

 

Kefalonia is the largest of the seven Ionian islands lying off the west coast of the Greek mainland. While all of the islands are characterised by rocky, green, mainly tree-covered mountains, and surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise waters, Kefalonia has some of the most spectacular scenery in the region. Home to the highest mountain of the archipelago, Mount Aenos, with its indigenous black pines and famous vines, it boasts strips of sandy beaches and popular tourist resorts in the south; ancient limestone caves, and views to the island of Ithaka to the east; the quieter, less-mountainous, agricultural, Paliki Peninsula to the west; and tall Cypress trees, silver-grey olive groves, and Venetian villages and fortresses to the north. 

 

 

FISCARDO
On Kefalonia, all roads lead to Fiscardo. The north is the most beautiful and magical part of the island. Famous, and on everyone’s ‘to visit’ list, but despite that – and those canny enough to have chosen to stay here – it still remains peaceful and unspoilt. It’s another world: far from mass tourism, far from big hotels and long stretches of beach with hundreds of parasols ranged in rows above plastic sunbeds, fast-food restaurants, and water sports.

Far from the airport, far from the hubbub of the outside world, Fiscardo has to be earned. Climb the long, winding, mountain roads, marvel at the sumptuous views, pass through the traditional villages, wonder at the goats perched high on the rocks, or encroaching humorously into the roads.

Once there, soak in the cosmopolitan atmosphere, refined glamour, elegant yachts, pretty Venetian architecture, sophisticated boutiques, and hum of harbour-side restaurants. The stage is set. Even while drinking your first, quiet, morning coffee, or sipping your chilled glass of evening wine down in a bar by the water, you already feel like you belong here, and you know you will return…

You may want to avoid the village in the middle of the day: from noon until 4pm. That’s when the tourists not lucky enough to be staying this end of the island, descend. Arriving by bus or by boat, they are but passing through, regretting already that they are not lucky enough to be one of you…

LOCAL ACTIVITIES
Whether you wish to while away your days by the pool or down on the beach, having leisurely lunches on taverna terraces, or sipping cool white wine while watching the stunning sunsets; or you’re the more active type who needs to fill their days with adventure and exploration – there is plenty on offer to suit everyone’s taste, and everyone’s budget.

Wander the old mule tracks and explore the countryside and Venetian ruins; hire a small motorboat and potter along the coast, mooring up in secret coves; swim in the crystal-clear waters and snorkel over the seabed, or learn to breathe underwater on a Scuba Dive trip; ride over the hills on horseback; take a ferry, hop on a day cruise, or hire a yacht with a skipper and sail the seas and visit the other islands nearby. Jump in the car and explore the island: visit the wide variety of beaches, making sure you stop off at famous Myrtos; buy your fish in the morning from the waterfront in the small but bustling capital, Argostoli – keeping your eyes peeled for turtles in the bay; seek your water sport thrills from the sandy beaches in Lassi; do a tour of a winery and sample the local wines; visit the Drogarati limestone caves, and be paddled across the translucent fresh water lake in Melissani Cave…. The list is long.
