‘Alto Mare’ – meaning ‘the wide sea’ in Italian was built as a stunning private home. This luxury 240m² villa has breathtaking, uninterrupted, sea views, 4 bedrooms and 2 private swimming pools, and is located just 400m from the beach. And Italy itself is 200 miles away beyond the blue horizon, across the wide open Ionian Sea. Nestled on a hillside surrounded by lush vegetation, the sunset views from this villa are quite spectacular. The small beach of Alaties – with it’s beautiful crystal-clear water, natural salt pools, and a charming Italian-run beach bar/restaurant – is just a 5mins walk (400m) away. The pretty, famous, fishing village of Fiscardo is just 10mins (8km) down the road.

The stylish villa’s chic, open-plan living area is furnished with a tasteful selection of antique Balinese and contemporary designer furniture, and there is direct access to the upper terraces and main swimming pool. The open, American-style kitchen is fully-equipped to a very high standard, making it perfect for family use. Each of the 4 bedrooms is air conditioned and furnished with a double bed – 3 of them benefitting from sea views and direct access to the terrace. Outdoors, relax on the comfortable rattan seating on the 300m2 teak decking and gaze out over the wide blue yonder, lounge under the sun by one of the 2 swimming pools, or sip a glass of wine while enjoying the amazing sunsets – all in total privacy. Villa Alto Mare is the perfect holiday home for those seeking a combination of luxury and seclusion, but within easy reach of local amenities.

About the neighbourhood
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 res...
