Whether you’re a romantic couple, a family in search of rest and reconnection, or a fun group of friends, you’ll find your Greek island paradise at Dorian Fiscardo.
Located on the northern tip of the island of Kefalonia – made famous by the captivating novel and film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin – Fiscardo is a picturesque Venetian harbour, with traditional cobbled streets and a quayside peppered with welcoming tavernas.
Accommodation comprises Dorian House, an architect-designed waterfront villa sleeping up to eight guests, and Dorian Apartment, a romantic self-contained bolthole for two. Both retreats boast heavenly views across the shimmering, turquoise Ionian Sea, for a holiday that promises to linger long in your memory.
(You can even book both retreats together for an incredible summer holiday for up to ten guests – so none of your favourite people have to stay at home!)
If you’ve opted for Dorian House, you’ll find the architect-designed, creatively-styled villa equipped with four elegant double bedrooms… each one with its own bath or shower room to limit awkward morning queues.
You’ll also have four spacious, furnished terraces to choose from – not to mention two scenic balconies, for outdoor living at its most visually indulgent! Positioned on a tranquil cove, you can unwind to the gentle sound of the sea lapping on the rocks below…
…in fact, why not grab a bean bag lounger and head on down, perhaps taking a dip in that secluded, sun-dappled cove while you’re there? Return to a sizzling barbecue on the sea-facing terrace, or a hearty feast whipped up in the fully-equipped kitchen, before challenging your loved ones to a round of pool in the basement games room.Keep reading

What the guests of Dorian Fiscardo say
“We have just returned from a wonderful week at Dorian. The apartment is spacious, stylish, very comfortable and well equipped and its location a few steps from the water and a short leisurely stroll from lovely Fiscardo or Foki beach is absolutely perfect. The bean bags on the rocks below the house is a stroke of genius ! Sarah was so helpful with information prior to arrival and the booking process was very efficient. We very much look forward to returning to Dorian and will recommend, without hesitation, to friends. Thank you for a perfect holiday.”
“The apartment is in the most beautiful position, overlooking the bay towards Ithaca and beyond. It provides beautiful open plan living with French windows opening out on to a glorious terrace where we spent many hours just soaking up a view we never tired of. With only a hop, skip and a jump across the road to the sea it was perfect for early morning dips. We had high expectations and they were certainly met. I don’t know how anyone couldn’t fall completely in love with Dorian and Fiskardo.”
“We had an amazing week at the Dorian. The ground floor apartment and the villa accommodated our group of 10. The beach across from the villa is beautiful. Location is excellent – short walk to Foki beach (great tavern too) and short walk to the town. Beautifully decorated, nice finishes and appliances. Good AC and WiFi. Easy parking for two cars. Highly recommended, would definitely stay again.”
