“If there are a group of you look no further”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Best Villa we've stayed at in the Greek Islands. Really well designed and plenty of crockery, glasses, and seating — inside and out. Dishwasher, fridge-freezer, oven all very good. The owners live next door and if we had any queries about the Villa or local beaches, shops etc., they were very happy to help. If you are here when its very hot you may need to ask for a fan — one of our sets of friends who had the top bedroom found it very hot on the first night but once they had the fan working on night two, all good.
Area very pleasant, too, Two Tavernas, cafe, supermarket and close to Fiscardo. Would return.

A fantastic week at Amigdalospito. The house is spacious and thoughtfully equipped to a particularly high standard. The outside space is equally thoughtful with different seating areas in sun and shade for enjoying the beautiful views. The owners, Karen and Sue, are clearly passionate about the house and Kefalonia and are the perfect hosts; hugely helpful when needed but very unobtrusive otherwise. The house is set above the village of Vasilikades virtually equidistant between the east and west coasts with several beautiful beaches within a 10/15 minute drive. Spending days discovering the beaches and then retreating to the slightly cooler and fresher air of Amigdalospito was an unexpected joy. Even in August it was possible to sleep very comfortably without a/c or electric fans. As the owners' description makes clear the many steps and varying levels internally and externally make the property unsuitable for anybody with limited mobility. For anybody else who wants more than an identikit antiseptic villa this is just perfect.

“A beautiful, comfortable villa, with character and history”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recently stayed at Amigdalospito with a group of friends, and count ourselves fortunate to have found such a charming house at short notice, which we can only attribute to its relatively recent listing on Trip Advisor.
Amigdalospito is situated a short stroll above the centre of the village of Vasilikiades, in northern Kefalonia, with beautiful views across the countryside. The property has several levels, each with a different aspect - you can just see the sea from the swimming pool terrace - and provides great opportunities for socialising with a group or escaping to a quiet corner to read a book. We found it the perfect place to unwind.
The history of the building is apparent everywhere, from the wine press in the living room floor, to the former threshing circle which now provides a circular lawn with seats. Talk to the very approachable owners and they will tell you of their work over many years to restore and update the property.
We took the entire property for a week, including the small annexe which is sometimes let separately. All the bedrooms were ensuite, comfortable and well equipped. Being a traditional house with thick walls and shutters, the rooms stayed relatively cool during day and night, so air conditioning was not needed. The kitchen / living / dining room is open plan and also well equipped. Personal touches were everywhere, with helpful notes and a guide to local attractions, beaches and the two excellent village tavernas.
Our favourite beach was Alaties, 10 minutes drive north, which had crystal clear waters, excellent snorkelling, and a super taverna with an Italian twist.
If you stay, ask about Jamie's boat trips from Fiskardo (15 minutes north) - a fun and informative way to spend a day.
Would love to stay at the villa again, and definetly recommend for those like us who can't abide the notion of a sterile packaged holiday box / experience.

“A beautiful, peaceful friendly place to stay”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Cannot recommend this highly enough. This is a beautiful traditional house which has been updated with great skill and subtlety . The owners are warm, friendly and very helpful. There's a beautiful pool and garden in a quiet very Greek village. Staying here means you get the chance to experience how Greece was 30 years ago without any of the discomforts of that time.

“The perfect holiday”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2013

I have stayed here several times and have had the most relaxing time. All your needs are met - the rooms are all ensuite and very comfortable. The accommodation is in a beautifully restored Kefalonian house situated in the North of the island which has a very homely feel. Beautiful terrace and pool. Views are fantastic and it is near to Assos and Fiskardo. Local tavernas are excellent and within a few minutes walk. I've stayed here both for b&b and have rented it as villa accommodation. The island is beautiful and this is a perfect place to stay to get the most from your holiday.
