The coast of Kefalonia is a rather special spot in the Ionian Sea. From the quaint and colourful villas on the waterside of Sami, to rugged clifftop landscapes with sheer drops to the water, spectacular contrasts make this island stand out from the rest. And just a four-minute drive from ancient Sami, this modern home adds yet another delightful contrast. This apartment is set just ten metres away from the sea, but has a truly earthy palette. As you step inside, there's an immediate sense of zen and a grounding feeling from sandy hues, wooden furniture, and wicker decorations. But something else stands out in this organic colour scheme – lime green. A fabulous feature wall and dining chairs create a pop of colour which brightens the space and makes your mouth water for a cold margarita. Mix up the cocktails and take them down to the lawn of your garden or the private balcony, where azure waters and leafy trees make up a gorgeous vista. Outside is also where you’ll find the residents’ swimming pool – not a bad place to cool off after a day in the Mediterranean sun.
