Altomare Villa is superbly equipped for the outdoor living that can be enjoyed throughout the summer months in the Mediterranean.
The location of Altomare Villa is unique and the 300 square meters of teak decking ensure that visitors enjoy their surroundings to the full. The quality of furnishings and attention to detail are of the same high standard as the interior of the villa.
There are two swimming pools - one on each level. The main pool is located on the upper level, measures 8 metres x 4 metres and can be accessed directly from the main sitting room.
The garden level pool (5X3 m) is located on the lower terrace and can be directly accessed from the bedroom terraces.
To ensure that guests are always comfortable, there is an abundance of outside furniture and umbrellas. These include rattan chairs with cushions, stylish teak loungers and upright chairs.
Due to the facilities offered at Altomare Villa it is not really necessary to leave the house to enjoy the area. This has been indicated by the fact that most guests, whether staying for a week, a fortnight or more, don't often leave the property. Everything required for total relaxation is to hand.
A 25% deposit is required on booking and the balance should be paid 60 days prior to arrival.
The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia, at 688.8 square kilometres has 365 villages and is the largest of the seven Ionian islands. Agriculture, wine making and bee-keeping are still important sources of income and the island has remained surprisingly unspoilt. The terrain is rugged and surprisingly green due to the high winter rainfall.
At 8 km from the villa, Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian Islands. Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953, that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia. Traditionnal Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer. If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish. Otherwise, a stroll around the harbour will take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts. Many of them are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo.Fiscardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective.The lights, the old buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants all combine to provide a magical Mediterranean atmosphere.Of all the villages of Kefalonia, Fiscardo stands out as having a unique ambiance, especially on a summer evening.

"Amazing views, away from it all, peaceful and up there with the very best in luxury self catering accommodation."
This was our third visit to Villa Alto Mare. Needless to say we are hooked on the place. It is the perfect get away to relax and unwind. Catherine is the perfect host - who will make you feel like it's your home for the duration of the stay, is very helpful if you need her and leaves you to get on with your holiday. The views are spectacular - living up to its name of Open Sea with panoramic unspoilt views taking in the mountains of Kefalonia on one side and the cliffs to the sea on the other. Catherine has thought of everything you might need in the villa - from an 'enthusiastic' ice making machine - keeping your drinks nice and cold through to pool and beach towels. You will have a wonderful stay at this magnificent villa.

This was our 3rd stay at this beautiful villa. We do not often go back to the same place more than once but because this villa and destination ticks all the boxes it is very difficult to resist returning to. I do believe you would be very hard pushed to find a villa in Kefalonia as perfect as Villa Alto Mare. The villa is situated in such a peaceful, quiet area but is just a 5 minute walk to the stunning Alaites Beach and it's lovely taverna.The harbour of Fiscardo is about a 10 minute drive away where we spend most of our evenings. Catherine is a lovely and very efficient host who we feel very safely looked after by. We will be returning to the villa with our 3 children once again next year as we feel extremely confident that it will provide us with a very relaxing and peaceful holiday in luxury accommodation with spectacular views. We could on and on ..Perfection !!!
I always welcome your lovely family with great pleasure. No doubt you love my house, and no doubt I enjoy you as guest ! Thank you J., for your very nice words.

"A wonderful villa in a wonderful location"
We haven't stopped talking about our relaxing stay at the Alto Mare Villa, near Fiskardo, so that can only be the sign of a great holiday choice. The Alto Mare is an extremely private, architect designed villa with panoramic sea views from nearly every window and terrace, its location lending itself to beautiful sunsets. The villa itself has been tastefully furnished with some unique items, which made you feel more like a guest in someone's home, rather than being in a holiday rental. The Alto Mare was extremely spacious and although there was just the two of us staying, a family group would not feel as though they were on top of each other. The outdoor space was amazing, having 2 pools on 2 different levels with vast expanses of decking and patio areas to house plentiful dining and lounging furniture, in both sun and shade. Catherine, the owner, was a delight to do "business" with from the start, providing useful local information and detailed travel directions, communicating with us throughout our stay, without being in any way obtrusive. Despite having rented a car, which is essential to get there, we didn't feel the need to venture far as we had everything close by, pretty Fiskardo, beautiful accomodation with a stunning view, and 5 mins. walk away is a little bay with crystal clear a friendly taverna serving excellent food (and cocktails!) The only downside was that we had to leave at the end of our 2 weeks and vacate the villa for the next lucky guests!

This is our second year in a row that we have visited the Fiscardo area - we love the climate, the friendliness of the people, the good food and prices are pretty reasonable. Villa Alto Mare is an excellent villa with stunning views. Catherine, the owner, is very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend it. The only thing to note is that the villa is quite remote - one beach cafe 5 minutes walk down the hill. So a car is essential - Fiscardo is 10 minutes drive away. Manganos - the closest village is 5 minutes drive and has a good local taverna on the crossroads opposite the mini market.

"Breathtaking views in complete luxury!"
We enjoyed a superb week at Villa Alto Mare and would recommend to those looking for luxurious accommodation in a superb setting. Plenty of good places to eat within relatively short driving distances but also good base for exploring delightful island of Kefalonia. Owner completely professional and helpful - a pleasure to stay in her beautiful villa.

"Perfect villa, perfect location, perfect host!!"
We have stayed twice at Villa Altomare, both times for two weeks. The villa's location could not be better, with fabulous westerly views out over the sea (perfect for sundowners), very easy to get into Fiscardo (10mins) and lovely countryside to explore all around. The villa is well furnished and kept immaculately; it is very well equipped and what was not there the first year was provided this year (just some nice big highball glasses for serious cocktails). The owner, Catherine, is a perfect hostess and always available if anything is needed. We will definitely be back in the future.
