Villa Nefeli, Sami
Villa Nefeli is one of four individual houses; each with its own private pool, set in a lush garden of well-tended lawn planted with a variety of Mediterranean plants with bougainvillea, jasmine and palms just a stones throw from Sami beach. This lovely two bedroom villa has a private pool and barbecue terrace and the most wonderful mountain views. You can hear the sea and glimpse it from the first floor balcony, but a line of tall trees affords privacy from the beach itself. The Villa itself is beautifully finished in a comfortable, easy style and organised over two floors with both the double and twin bedrooms at first floor level.
Entrance is directly into the open plan ground floor, light and bright with deep squashy sofas, a fireplace and French doors opening to the swimming pool terrace, the barbecue area and the outside dining table under a pergoda beside the pool To one side, the kitchen area is well equipped with electric oven and ceramic hob, fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher. French windows also open to the terrace from the dining area of the living room. There is also a convenient shower room on the ground floor.On the first floor, the master double bedroom has an en suite shower room and French doors opening onto a private balcony with views towards Sami and mountains rising all around the bay.Also on the first floor floor and with it`s own mountain view balcony is the twin bedroom.
The lovely 8m x 3m swimming pool (depth 1.75), surrounded by sunbathing terraces has roman step entry. There is a beach side tavern a little over a 5 min walk away and it really is not much further to wander along the beach side path into Sami itself and it would be difficult to find an equal Villa with a private pool in a more convenient location..

The Ionian Islands region
Sitting off the west coast of Greece, Kefalonia is the largest of this group of the Ionian Islands. From its highest mountain, surrounded by a natural park where wild horse live, to it`s 250kms of coastline, where loggerhead turtles come to nest; Kefalonia is a natural wonderland, full of suprises. There are underground lakes, limestone caves, and of course many Beaches. Many of the longer sandy south and east coast now offer all the facilities that add to a holiday but with no building over 3 stories allowed tourism has been contained, maintaining a pleasant laid back atmosphere. There are many smaller undeveloped bays and little fishing harbours waiting to be discovered.
This small seaside town has been a main port of call from ancient times to the present day for ships & boats. Sami has grown to be a favourite spot for yachts to pull into it's harbour after having a lovely sail around the Sami Bay with Ithaki to one side and the tree clad mountains surrounding. By day there is lots of hustle and bustle with the ferries and sailboats coming and going but by night the waterfront, which is lined with tavernas and cafes, gets closed down from traffic and turns into a promenade for pedestrians and has a lovely relaxing atmosphere. There are a couple of banks, a post office, several shops and tavernas in the village. A narrow stretch of beach which is sandy & pebbly is not too far from the town itself.
This region is known for its many caves, in particular the Drogarati Cave with its amazing stalagmites & stalagmites and wonderful acoustics and the Melissani Lake with its beautiful blue water and fascinating natural wonder. It that has been discovered that the water from the Katavothres, near Argostoli, travels underground and reappears in Karavomilos via the Melissani Lake. The sea water mixes with the fresh water and is rather dark at the Karavomilos lake before it goes back into the sea again. The taverna which is next to the lake has lovely views towards Sami with the mountains in the background and literally right on the sea's edge overlooking the bay of Sami, a perfect way to spend an afternoon and contemplating life over a bottle of the famous Kefalonian Robola wine. The beautiful pebbly/shingly beach of Antissamos is located just a couple of kilometers outside of Sami and well worth a visit or two for its setting and beautiful clear waters. The hilltops between Sami and Antissamos have fantastic views and interesting historical ruins like the medieval bell-tower of the Monastery of Panayia Agrilion amazing views of the Bay of Sami, Ithaki and down to Antisammos beach, plus the walls of the ancient acropolis called Kyatis and the ruined Monastery of Agia Fanendes.
From Sami it is very easy to drive north to the Agia Paraskevi beach or the harbour village of Agia Efimia and onto either Myrtos Beach or further north the tranquil village of Fiscardo. Whilst a drive to the south of Sami takes you to Poros and the lovely sandy beach resort of Skala. Argostoli is only a 30 min drive away and another option if you are looking for a more buzzing atmosphere and stock up at one of the fruit & veg markets on the waterfront.
