The property offers a unique combination of design, style and natural beauty, as the views from all rooms are quite breathtaking.
The furniture is a tasteful combination of Bauhaus and original old Balinese pieces and although the setting is natural, modern technology has not been neglected; there is a satellite television as well as a free high speed wifi Internet connection.
The main entrance to the villa is on the upper level, directly into the 80 m2 living room with huge picture window allowing a panoramic view of the seascape. 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.

|Further details outdoors|
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.

"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.
