Hi, I have just booked to stay in the Waterfront Appartments in the middle of August and just wondered if anyone has any experience or comments about the location etc.  There will just be myself and my husband, both sort of middle aged  and looking for a reasonably laid back place for our holiday.  We will be eating out every day, both lunch and dinner I would imagine.

This will be our first visit to Kefalonia although we have been to other islands.

I would also like to ask about whether the transfer to and from the airport is reasonable. 

I would appreciate anyone's opinion as we have to confirm the booking in the next couple of days.  Thanks.  SG

Book it!

I could 'see' Fiscardo yesterday, while enjoying lunch at Vassilaki in Lefkada and was just dreaming to be there. Fiscardo is just amazing and a perfect choice for a quiet holiday. Nearby Assos is a delight, as is Myrtos beach. (See my Avatar!)

Thanks, Nathan, for your prompt, and extremely positive reply, much appreciated.  It sounds fantastic, I must say.  Yes, I am pretty sure now that we will go ahead and confirm on Monday.

Take care and thanks again.

Hi Surreygirl

Well the waterfront appartments are placed in a lovely spot - just 10 mins walk from the centre of Fislardo and 12 mins in the oposite direction from a lovelly beach.   They are as said - right on the water - my only observation is that you dont actially get much privacy there.

Assos is a fantastic place but to appreciate it - you really need to stay there a few days ( Assos is magical in the evenings ) - its about half an hours drive from Fiskardo.

You cant go wrong with ther northern end of the island - OK you dont get the sandy beaches of the South - but you get so much more instead.

Highly reccomended.

Hi, Simon, thanks for your reply.  Yes, I was wondering about the privacy aspect, especially for those on the ground floor, which we would not be as they were booked a long time ago, I would think. 

We won't be doing much travelling as we don't drive abroad but we will be quite content to potter about as far as we can.  I realise there won't be sandy beaches but the rest should make up for that, I'm sure.

Thanks again.  SG

Dear Surreygirl. I think that the Waterfront Apartments are fairly private because if you are sunbathing on your balcony which is sea-facing you can only really be seen if somebody is on the opposite peninsula with binoculars! Fiscardo in August is very busy. It has many visitors not only staying there but coming and going with flotillas and some private yachts. The Waterfront Apartments are in one of the best positions in Fiscardo in my opinion as it is in a flat area and easy walking distance to all you will require. Regarding the transfer it takes one hour 15 mins by taxi but the transfer coach will probably take longer. You can usually book a private taxi transfer for an additional cost. If you have booked with Sunvil/Greek Islands Club they have a very good reputation and I believe the transfer will be well organised. However I have another suggestion for you!
If you have not yet booked your holiday there is a building next door called the Zavalata House. Similar to Waterfront in some ways but also has the use of swimming pool at the Porto Fiscardo opposite which has a cafe bar and great atmosphere. There is availablity in mid aug for one or two weeks in a three-bedroom apt on the ground floor and middle floor as well as in the Sofita which is the top floor two-bedroom apartment. If you can travel saturday and want flights from Heathrow or Manchester it may be worth considering this alternative. If you do not want a car - try a motor-boat hire for the day - wonderful. There is also great choice of boat and ferry options from Fiscardo. If you want more information contact me via www.cephalonia-connections.com

Have a great holiday
Francesca
