If visiting an ancient village and boating across a crystal-clear lake sounds like your sort of afternoon, this coastal landscape of Kefalonia might fit the bill. Just a four-minute drive from the town of Sami, and an eight-minute walk from the sapphire waters of Melissani Cave, this luxe apartment offers a base where you can brush the sand off your feet and let your swimwear dry for the day ahead. Merging into the organic scenery of this island, the home offers a calming decor of sandy tones, reminiscent of nearby beaches. Wicker and wood furniture add to this natural vibe, which continues from the dining space into the bedrooms. Rope-framed mirrors and solid log stools put even more emphasis on this rustic, beachside theme – as does the fabulous view from the terrace. Pour yourself a glass of local wine and step outside to admire the vista. From your sandy-hued home, it would only make sense to have the sea alongside. While the residents’ swimming pool below is the first port of call, the Ionian Sea itself is just a little further in the distance. We recommend gazing out at these azure tones while nibbling olives on the decking.
