Perched on a mountainside on Cephalonia's east coast, in the quaint fishing village of Agia Effimia, this stunning design-led home offers dreamy sea views in a secluded location. Just footsteps from the harbour's cafes, bars and restaurants and the golden sands of Beach Elies, this sumptuous pad is the perfect base for exploring Cephalonia in style. Built using local stone, the home is an ode to the designer's lifelong infatuation with the island. Every detail works to celebrate Cephalonia's enchanting landscape. Interiors are cloaked in a neutral colour palette of creamy beiges and slate greys, creating a calming canvas. Meanwhile, warm timber beams and earthy linens complement the lush foliage nearby. Though each room offers stunning views, the outdoor terrace is the property's masterpiece. From the open-plan kitchen and lounge, open the large sliding doors and enjoy sweeping verandas of the sparkling sea and charming rooftops below. You'll love spending peaceful mornings here, coffee in hand, soaking up the soft rising sun. Outside, the pergola shaded dining area is the ideal spot to tuck into your complimentary breakfast and overlooks the crystalline infinity pool and jacuzzi. There's even a discrete outdoor shower nestled in the villa's stone walls, perfect for cooling off after a trip to the beach. With ample seating, including a plush outdoor lounge space and fire-pit nestled at pool height, you'll never want to leave this elegant pocket of paradise.
