    Not just for yachties
    The journey from the airport may take one and half hour but to discover Fiscardo is well worth the effort. The buildings in this village managed to escape the earthquake of 1953 that devastated many parts of Kefalonia. Most of the houses are built in the attractive Venetian design and painted in pastel colours. Around the horseshoe shaped harbour are a good selection of tavernas and bars. I thoroughly enjoy sitting at these of an evening, watching the yachts coming in to moor. It is very popular for boats and as the evening progresses the berths become full. Consequently some yachts have to moor out in the bay and the sailors journey to shore in small dinghies. A few crews decide to remain on board eating al fresco, a lovely way to spend an evening. Dotted around the village are a few chic boutiques, a good bakery and a friendly chandler with a ready smile, always willing to chat.

    Sunbathing and lovely lunches
    Kefalonia is a wonderful Island. We stayed in Fiscardo for a week in a villa and it was fabulous! There are some amazing little hidden beaches and coves to discover, many had great little tavernas. The villages are very picturesque and unspoilt - as is the whole island in my opinion. Fiscardo is particularly nice as it still has all its old bulidings, which survived the earhquake a while back. The little harbour there was very pretty, lined with tavernas. It is mainly a quiet little village, but it had quite a buzz at night and is visited by many yachts who come in and stay for the night. Regarding food, the restaurants all seemed to have a very high standard. The local wine that you buy by the kilo with your meal is really excellent and very reasonably priced! So, what I remember most from Kefalonia is the sunbathing and lots of lovely lunches!

    Many colours
    I think what makes Fiskardo special is the many colours it has. Most houses are built in pink, yellow and blue and this gives a cheerful vibe to the village. My favorite thing in Fiskardo was to sitr at a cafe and have a cold coke by the sea, while people were walking besides. It was trully relaxing. Once you go, you will love the fishing boats at the port and the friendly people.
