Eucalyptus Apartments are part of a new communal apartment development located in the traditional village of Karavomylos, approximately 2km from the port town of Sami, and located in the same village as the famous Melissani Cave.

At only 10 meters from the Ionian sea, these self-catered apartments are perfect for those seeking a quiet, relaxing holiday. We have enjoyed consistent compliments and high rated reviews from our clients, and are fast becoming the de-facto standard for quality accommodation in the area. Each and every apartment has been professional designed, decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The selection of photographs provided are all true to form for each property.

Air conditioning, TV and Wifi are included as standard. We also provide full apartment cleaning twice per week, including fresh towel and bed linen replacement.

The development also includes a communal swimming pool, with sea views and underwater lighting. Free car parking is available around the whole development.

Within walking distance, there are several traditional taverns (the closest only 30 meters away), a mini-market, a bakery and a church. The nearest town is Sami, a few minutes drive, or a 20 minute walk along the beach. A traditional port town, with many tavernas and bars, as well as supermarkets, butcheries, green grocers, bakeries, pharmacy, ATM, medical centre; and all the other essentials for a comfortable stay. Also within a very short distance from the development are tennis courts, basket ball court and an astro-turf 5 a'side football pitch.

A small pebble beach is available only 10 meters from the complex, a larger organised beach (Karavomylos Beach) is only a 15 minute walk. Also available across the island are various activities, including but not limited to Horse Riding, Snorkeling, Kayaking, Swimming, Wine Tasting, Water Sports, Boat Rental and Fishing.

Due to this central location on the Island, few of the many places to visit are more than an hour's drive away. This includes Fiskardo to the north (1 hour), the famous Myrtos beach (30 mins drive) Skala (45 mins drive) the capital Argostoli (40 mins drive) and the airport (50 mins drive).

Much closer are Antisamos Beach (10 minute drive), Melissani Caves (2 mins drive or 10 minute walk) Agia-Paraskevi beach (5 mins drive) and the port town of Agia Efimia (10 mins drive).

Due the size of the island, a rental car or scooter is highly recommended.

Upon arrival, the onsite manager will introduce you to the apartment, and provide welcome refreshments. Towels, extra linens and periodic cleaning are included in the rental cost. A tour of the complex will include details of places to visit, directions and any other help required.

Please note the standard check-in time of 14:00, and check-out time of 11:00. A 100 Euro damage deposit will be required at the time of arrival, and will be refunded at your departure, subject to an apartment inspection.

Reggina purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Reggina chose Kefallonia (Cephalonia)

Newly developed complex including modern furnishings and equipment. 10 meters from the sea, all but one of our rentals offer sea views.

Located in a traditional village, away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but close enough to walk to across the beach.

Excellent modern apartments

  • 5 of 5

Excellent modern apartments next to sea and (stony) beach. Very well equipped and comfortable with aircon in main and bedrooms. Small pool and not many sunbeds, but that didn't bother us with sea so close. The pool was quiet until around 10:30 and was good for a refreshing dip. Mark is very helpful and knowledgeable about places to visit and had tips on quiet beaches too. He lent us some beach umbrellas and mats - very useful for the more isolated and incredibly beautiful Kefalonian beaches.

Sami is great for eating - and only a 20 minute walk or 5 - 10 in a car depending on parking. We only tried one of the 3 more local tavernas and while location and food were very good the service was poor. Heard good things about the others bit too late to try them.

So top apartments in a great location - only issue was that aircon unit on balcony blew warm air over you if it was on inside apartment. This was a minor issue and we'd visit again with no hesitation.

Tip: Bring or buy beach shoes - they're an absolute necessity for most of the northern beaches including Anti Samos, Myrtos etc.

Great find

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and other reviews say it all really.

Great location for a chill out type of holiday.

Mark was a very helpful host with a wealth of local knowledge and advice on tap. Crashed my car just outside the airport on arrival Mark and Regina went above the call of duty to help liaise with the pefanis hire-company and a replacement car was delivered to the block within 24hrs.

Yellow boats self drive boats in agia Efimia is also a fantastic day out brochures are in the site office.

Would definitely go back a real find with facilities you would be hard pressed to find in any other part of the island.

Very impressed with the property and service.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the Eucalyptus apartments in Sami. The apartment was excellent and overlooked the pool and the sea which was just a stones throw away. The apartment even had heating which we had to use as we had a few days of thundery weather. The apartment had all the home touches etc which made us feel as home. We also had fresh bread and cakes and a bottle of local wine waiting for us when we arrived.

Fabulous apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, spotlessly clean, with views over the pool and the sea. In wonderful location, Karavamylos is just outside Sami with its own bakery closeby so just a short stroll away to pick up the croissants for breakfast. Sea front restaurant also very close where you can eat overlooking the sea and Ithaka. Lovely 20 minute stroll into Sami. Advisable to have car to explore all the beautiful spots Kefalonia has to offer. If you want a quiet holiday without high rise hotels, totally unspoilt then this is the place for you. Mark, thank you for making us so welcome and being so helpful. Will recommend.

Fabulous holiday - great accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Hyacinth Apartment, a one bed roomed apartment on the top floor. The apartment was very well maintained, clean, and with everything we needed for our weeks holiday. If we had been staying longer I would have liked a washing machine, but there may be washing machines in other apartments. Mark was very helpful, and gave great advice on local facilities, where to go during the day for short trips, which beaches to visit ( especially for beautiful sunsets), and he also recommended some lovely restaurants. Mark also recommended a good taxi driver, Kosmos, who was very reliable and safe. We did not hire a car, so used Kosmos several times to visit other beaches for water sports etc... and were really happy with the service he provided.

I would have no hesitation visiting these apartments again, or recommending them to friends. The location was good, only 20 minute walk to Sami, and 15 minute walk to a really well maintained large pool with toilets, restaurant and free sun loungers. The Mermaid restaurant in Sami proved to be as nice as trip advisor rates it.

The only thing that caused a bit of an issue for us were the wasps - Kefalonia seem to get a lot of them! If you are not bothered by wasps it wouldn't be a problem, but we didn't expect so many, particularly on the beaches. Perhaps it was a unusual amount this year, but a little irritating at times.

Kefalonia is a very beautiful island and we really appreciated the beauty every day of the holiday.

Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands off Greece's west coast, which also include Corfu, Lefkada and Zante (Zakynthos). The Island boasts excellent tourist resorts, the biggest being at Lassi, Poros, Skala and Sami. Smaller more laid back resorts are at Lourdata, Katelios, Assos, Argostoli, Lixouri and Fiscardo to name a few. The island is not only the largest amongst the Ionian Islands, but also features the highest mountain, Mount Ainos, which reaches a height of 1627 M, and covered with Kefalonian fir trees. On a clear day the summit provides stunning views of the neighbouring island of Zante (Zakynthos), Lefkada and Ithaca.

Kefalonia has long established credentials as one of the most beautiful places in the world, having received accolades from many high profile professional publications such as Forbes, who awarded Kefalonia the 4th place spot in the 'world's most idyllic places to live.The world famous Myrtos beach, the jewel of our island, lies not far away and is widely considered to be the finest beach in Greece,

Karavomylos is one of the regions of the island most blessed by the unspoilt beauty the area is famous for, with wonders both natural and man made close at hand. One of the many surprising gifts of nature to be found in Kefalonia, Lake Melissani is a stunning underground lake. Close to Karavomylos, only a half kilometre from the sea, this cave-lake has an open roof allowing the light to play on the surface of the water and cast vivid colours and reflections on the glistening walls of the cavern. Small boats circle the lake offering breath-taking photo opportunities of this natural phenomenon. Its Greek name 'cave of the nymphs' reinforces the widely held opinion of those who study the Greek Odyssey, that Lake Melissani is in fact Homer's Cave of the Nymphs, a place of mischievous magical creatures!

Tourists can expect to find a variety of activities across the island, from horse riding to hiking, snorkelling and scuba diving, watersports and boat rentals to name a few, or simply explore the islands many olive groves, vineyards, caves, churches and monasteries, and of course the many stunning beaches, including the world famous Myrtos beach, Antisamos beach, a popular beach only 20 minutes away, with taverns and beach bars. Whether you want a mountain trek, a dungeon crawl through an ancient castle, a tour through millions of years old caves with underwater lakes, kayaking around the island or just to relax next to the clean refreshing Ionian sea, Kefalonia can accommodate you in a way few other destinations can match.
