5 Star Reviews of Dorian
The apartment itself was spacious, bright and comfortable
We had a lovely stay at Dorian Apartment last week. The apartment itself was spacious, bright and comfortable and only a 10 minute walk into Fiscardo’s main port which is brimming with restaurants, bars and shops. The small cove across the road was particularly handy for a dip in the sea but there are so many other areas to visit on the island (whether by car or boat) to enjoy the crystal clear waters. The information contained in Dorian’s App was invaluable and ensured that we could be perfectly prepared for our holiday. We hope to visit again soon.

10 meters away and you can dive into the sea... a small beach is 30 meters away and stunning. Foki Beach is just a 5 minute walk. The very large apartment has all the comforts and is beautifully decorated... just look at their photos and you will see. And Sarah, the owner, gets 10 stars !

The villa is in an amazing location
We've just got back from a wonderful week at Dorian Fiscardo and can't recommend it highly enough. The villa is in an amazing location (easy to walk into Fiscardo, directly opposite the most perfect rocks for swimming, incredible views) and is at once stylish and practical, with plenty of comfy places to sit, great beds, a fully-equipped kitchen with everything you need and a great barbecue. We also loved the bluetooth speaker, the ping pong table , the outdoor shower, the bean bags on the rocks - too much to list!

Beautifully decorated, comfortable and stylish
A truly wonderful house and apartment. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and stylish. Excellent location, next to a beautiful swimming area and a short walk to the town.

If I could give more stars I would
Dorian Fiskardo is something really special. The Apartment is perfect in every way. Very importantly, the bed is comfortable. Attention to detail, and the additional little things that make the world of difference e.g. a cooler box, Ice bricks, beach chairs and umbrellas, spices, olives. Sounds small, but so important and necessary. The location is amazing. So close to town, your own, semi-private beach in front of the house, and the view from the patio is one you dream. So sad to leave this all behind, and will most certainly be back.

This modern apartment is really well equipped and within walking distance of the busy port of Fiskardo but far enough away to not be affected by the hustle and bustle. Sarah was the perfect host and her digital guide was particularly useful in terms of getting the best out of our stay. Would highly recommend as a base to explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia.

This is an exceptional apartment which will exceed your expectations
Enormous bathroom with gorgeous freestanding bath leading out to a terrace with loungers. Dressing room, pure luxury. V spacious living area and kitchen with everything you need and leading out to another terrace with long comfy seating area and to top it all an amazing view of sea and sound of the waves. It was blissful! Couldn't have wanted more. It was cleaned mid week which we weren't expecting and the bottle of local wine in the fridge was a lovely gesture. If you want somewhere luxurious, spacious and comfy to stay this is it. Lastly the guide with info and recommendations was excellent and Sarah was in hand for anything you needed.

One for the bucket list, believe me
We were so thrilled to have found Dorian I almost don't want to write a review for fear of encouraging more visitors. This is a perfect spot for two (we stayed in the apartment). It's huge space with a real feel of luxury and high quality. Definitely one of the best self-catering places we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in quite a few). The location is great with central Fiscardo about 5 minutes amble away where there are cafes and restaurants aplenty (Sarah's recommendation of Melina's for coffee is spot on). In the opposite direction is Foki beach which is best visited first thing when you may just get it to yourself.
I know its a cliche but the sea is gorgeous; crystal clear and warm and you can get from bed to water in less than a minute. We loved our swims first thing, before breakfast but its a lovely spot any time to be honest. Sarah (the host) is great at communicating and sorted out the couple of minor issues we had very quickly and her information pack is really useful for new visitors. One for the bucket list, believe me.

Wow! What an amazing apartment
We have recently returned from a perfect week staying in Dorian, wow! What an amazing apartment, everything you could wish for and in the perfect location.
Arriving to a lovely salad, bread and wine was very much appreciated.The views are beautiful and sitting on the rocks just in front was idyllic, thank you for the bean bags! We loved our 5/10 minute walk into Fiscardo where every restaurant is amazing, couldn’t pick a favourite, simply one of our best holidays, really hope to return some day, thank you.

The most comfortable bed I have EVER slept on!
We had a wonderful stay in mid-October - perfect time to visit, very few people so we had the gorgeous local beaches pretty much entirely to ourselves, and the weather was perfect! Wandering from the apartment into Fiskardo for an evening meal at one of the excellent harbour-side restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable and clean and has literally the most comfortable bed I have EVER slept on! Combined with the great beanbag chair/beds which we could take to the beach, and the welcome bottle of champagne, I have never been made more comfortable. Thank you!
Spacious, stylish, very comfortable and well equipped
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.
We had high expectations and they were certainly met
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.
Highly recommended, would definitely stay again
We had an amazing week at 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.
Fantastic location - wonderful views. Short walk to the bustling waterfront restaurants.

We had an absolutely amazing time at Dorian in Fiscardo
The apartment is very large and spacious for two people. It is extremely clean and modern with high end appliances throughout. There were some other nice touches like lovely soap, shower gel, beach umbrellas, chairs and towels.
There is also a really helpful handbook, which provides excellent local advice. A short walk into town also! Also check out the secluded cove. Some of the clearest water around. Do not hesitate to recommend.

Dorian is simply world class
As regular visitors to Fiscardo we have never found a better place. We stayed in the Apartment which is spacious, well positioned and the thought that has gone into the design, furnishings and amenities is first class. It feels like a home not a holiday let and its direct proximity to the secluded bay opposite makes it easily the best apartment in Fiscardo. Its location means it is far enough from the centre of town to avoid the crowds but close enough to be able to stroll to the many amazing restaurants and shops in Fiscardo within 10 minutes. It is unequivocally our first choice for future stays.

Fantastic location, spacious modern, clean and beautiful apartment
We had an amazing stay at Dorian apartment. Fantastic location, spacious modern, clean and beautiful apartment with amazing terrace and view. Beautiful private small beach at the front in the best part of Fiscardo for sure. Sarah as a host was really great and very supportive, showing great hospitality, so we highly recommend Dorian and for sure we will come back next year as well.

We loved our time at Dorian last October
The apartment is modern, beautifully designed, very clean, and provided for all our needs. The house is right on the water and each morning we had a sunrise swim, with the whole bay to ourselves! It's perfectly located in walking distance from the restaurants and harbour of Fiscardo. It was very quiet and we slept so well. We also enjoyed several hikes around the headland which is marked by local tourism. Thank you Dorian - it felt so special and would love to stay again!

We had the most amazing stay at Dorian
Sarah the owner could not have been more helpful pre arrival and during our stay - and in the midst of a pandemic and in the aftermath of a terrible storm on the Island we had a blissful stay. The location is excellent and having stayed in Fiscardo before I would say it is idea - quiet, stunning views yet a short walk into the main area. The apartment is incredibly well thought out, super spacious, spotless and has all you need for a 6 star holiday!! You can walk everywhere or explore nearby locations and around the Island with ease. The local restaurants are varied in what they offer, and in price and every meal from breakfast to dinner or just drinks were delicious and warm and friendly service. So impressed we've booked for 2021.

We stayed in the apartment for a week at the end of August/beginning of September and had a wonderful time.We loved everything about our stay at Dorian. The location is about a ten minute leisurely stroll from the harbour and its restaurants. And it is about 30 seconds to the sea right outside. The place was spotlessly clean, modern and had everything we could have wished for. This is one of the few places we plan to go back to in the future. LOVED it!

The villa is better than in the pictures
We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in July/ August 2020 at Villa Dorian, Fiskardo. The villa is better than in the pictures, I was in danger of villa envy.... the view is fantastic, the finish of very high quality, as also could be said for the fittings and furniture. It really was like walking into your own home.
The location could not be bettered, Fiskardo is the most picturesque town on Kefalonia, the villa is away from the noise but comfortable walking distance from the marina with all its restaurants.
The aspect is wonderful with beautiful dawns and sunsets and the sun seemingly always somewhere on the villa.
In addition, Sarah was very helpful before and during the holiday. There is lots to do from early morning dip in the sea, there is a quiet bay, that’s straight in front of the villa. To trips around the island, mud baths, salt baths, sunshine, wonderful food and unspoilt scenery, historical sites, secluded beaches, swimming, sailing, fishing plus much more.

The location of this apartment is amazing
Firstly, the location of this apartment is amazing. 5 minute walk from the main town of Fiskardo & incredible views of the sea. Check in was smooth & straight forward & we were really impressed with how big, comfortable & clean (& stylish) the apartment was. We will definitely be staying there again!

Lovely hi-spec apartment
A lovely hi-spec apartment located a short and very pleasant stroll from the harbour with a beautiful view of the Venetian lighthouse.

This is a beautiful apartment that is stylish, comfortable, and very clean
There are many thoughtful touches which make it feel homely and ‘easy to live in’. The location is superb-we spent so many wonderful evenings sitting on the terrace enjoying the sound of the sea. You are also able to walk easily into the town for food or dinner. The region is lovely and Fiskardo has a great atmosphere and character. We miss everything about this holiday now we are home and we dream of returning! Thanks to Sarah and the team for a wonderful holiday.

We enjoyed every minute at Dorian and actually were sad to leave!
The home is super spacious with very modern furnishings and everything you could need and more!! We used all that was provided including AC, WiFi, washing machine, stove, fridge, espresso machine, TV and speakers- all in top condition! Bed was extremely comfortable too.We enjoyed having our own breakfasts on the terrace outside and pre-dinner drinks, and then an easy 10 min walk to Fiskardo where there are so many wonderful restaurants to pick. Foki beach is a 10 min walk, we also easily went with the car to Dafnoudi, Emplisi, Alatiea, San Jerusalem, Myrtos, Assos. Needless to say when we come back to Kefalonia, we would be so happy to come back to Dorian! Thank you to Sarah, Linda and team!
Anna July 2019
Best place we have ever stayed
Wonderful location. Very spacious and luxurious. Short walk from a less crowded beach than other parts of Kefalonia. And short walk to centre of Fiskardo!
Renata August 2019
Amazing place in dreamy Fiscardo
We are definitely coming back to Dorian Fiscardo.
Aziz August 2019
A lovely space
This is a lovely space, right on the edge of the sea and ten minutes walk into town.
Ken October 2020
Enjoyed our stay SO much. We’ll definitely be back!
The accommodation was all we were hoping for, and then some! Stunning, modern, brand new, fabulously furnished and equipped ground floor apartment on the edge of a beautiful little bay. A leisurely ten minute walk to the harbour and Foki beach.
Dorotea United Kingdom June 2019
Just what we needed. Lovely big space which was really nicely furnished. Fantastic outdoor area with an amazing view across the bay where we could watch the boats mooring up in the early evenings. We regularly used the beanbags down on the rocks which was such a great little addition, and something that made it even more memorable.
Edward United Kingdom August 2019
The perfect Greek escape!
Very well decorated and comfortable, Dorian is the perfect Greek escape. The villa is located close to town in a quiet area. Fantastic views from the enormous balcony. Service was fantastic and we would happily stay again.
