A five minute drive from Fiskardo along the eastern coastline brings you to Matsoukata, the charming family village of Tassos and his wife Rowena. It is hard to believe you are so close to bustling Fiskardo, such is the wonderful atmosphere and peace of your surroundings.
The Alexanna Apartments consist of two sand coloured houses with traditional shuttered windows, both carefully and lovingly constructed around the family’s precious olive grove. Some of these trees are many hundreds of years old.
There are a total of six apartments in the first house: two studios, three one bedroom and one two bedroom apartments, with three studios in the second. All apartments enjoy wonderful view across the green forest carpet towards Doliha Bay and to Ithaka beyond. Two of the ground floor balconies are sheltered from the sun by a canopy of vines and a third by bougainvillea.
A pleasant twenty minute walk brings you to the traditional village of Manganos, where you will find a well-stocked store, a greengrocer, kafenion and family run taverna with sublime sunsets.
Whether it is the play of light upon the glistening sea, the sun and shadows on the green hills of Ithaka or the contrasting shapes of the slender cypress’s and the broader olives swaying gently in the breeze, no two apartments have exactly the same view from their balconies or terraces but all are equally memorable.
Alexanna is surrounded by an abundance of vibrant and fragrant flowers and shrubs. Carefully planted and regularly tended by Rowena, the gardens behind are beautifully landscaped, with a large swimming pool set in a glade of hollyoaks and olive trees. Pool side is a perfect place to relax, as there is little to disturb you apart from the occasional sound of the goat bells from the neighbouring hillsides.
