This beautiful retreat is in a sought-after location with views of both the Ionian Sea across the Bay of Sami to Ithaca and surrounding olive-covered countryside. The stylish villa sits above the small seaside hamlet of Karavomylos next to the port of Sami on the east coast of Kefalonia and is just a short drive from Antisamos, a beach that has gained worldwide fame from the Hollywood movie ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’.
One of two neighbouring detached properties, Lefkidio boasts its own spacious gardens with a private pool sitting to the rear to take advantage of the far-reaching views. Inside, everywhere is exceptionally furnished with contemporary décor in neutral colours, creating an air of cool sophistication. The sitting room and dining area are arranged into one open-plan space, while a separate kitchen has another dining table and chairs. Upstairs are two stylish bedrooms, each with a balcony overlooking the pool, while the third bedroom is in the basement for those who want extra privacy.
There is a shaded terrace connected to the open plan dining area, which features another dining set and barbecue for long leisurely lunches and meals eaten under the stars. The gorgeous private pool is framed by extensive lawned terraces with smart sunloungers for those looking to soak up the sunshine. Nearby hotspots include Kefalonia’s most famous attraction, Melissani Lake, as well as Sami’s charming waterfront restaurants and the nearby beach of Karavomylos and the many stunning cover that line the road from Karavomylos to nearby Aghia Efimia.
