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.

Stylish modern apartment in unspoilt village

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit to Eucalyptus Apartments and we weren't disappointed. This time we asked for a top floor one bed away from the pool, and Mark quickly provided us with the perfect spot. The apartment had unimpeded views of the sea and the landscaped gardens and was very quiet. Despite staying in a smaller and simpler apartment than last year, the high quality of fixtures and fittings was still apparent. We had everything we needed and when we asked about clothes washing facilities we were instantly given free use of a machine. The apartment was meticulously cleaned twice during the week by friendly and trustworthy staff.

Mark and Regina were on hand to answer any queries we had. Their local and regional knowledge is superb yet they don't bombard you with information. What I like so much about this operation is the seemingly effortless and unobtrusive nature of the management. They know what they are doing and they do it very well indeed.

For any couple, family or groups of friends, these are very suitable apartments with a range to suit your budget. There are plenty of decent restaurants, all within a very pleasant 20 mins stroll. The only downside to the accommodation is the lack of a good beach - but the beautiful rocks and waters of Aghia Efemia is only a short taxi or car ride away.

I highly recommend this accommodation and those who manage it.

Excellent apartments

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartments. Roomy and comfortable with clean modern decor. Quiet area and apartments apart from occasional excited kids in pool - nice to hear. The pool is a bit small but sea is right outside so who cares! Take (or buy) beach shoes - you'll be glad you did, and that goes for most beaches in northern half of the island - the beautiful Myrtos and Anti Samos included . Mark is very helpful - worth listening to his tips re beaches and restaurants. Loan of sun umbrellas and beach mats was most welcome.

20 minute walk to Sami is ok but worth getting a Taxi back (beware - they stop working not long after midnight - so check before relying on them for trip home). Highly recommended.

Fantastic holiday in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 fantastic weeks and had a super holiday! The apartment is superb & fully equipped to the highest standard & beautifully furnished making it an absolute delight to stay in.

The location is beautiful and the views from the apartment balcony are stunning! We really enjoyed the coastal walk into Sami.

The apartment was cleaned & bed linen/towels changed every few days, the apartment grounds were also kept spotlessly clean & tidy. The pool is perfect for sitting & relaxing by. Having the beautiful clear blue sea to swim in just across the road was super!

A huge thank you to Mark who was so kind & helpful & looked after us so well. We really did not want to come home & we definitely hope to return again :)

Fantastic Apartment set in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Kefalonia several times and this is the best apartment we have stayed in, booking was easy with good communication from Mark the Manager who was also there to welcome us and show us around. Lots of nice touches such as the welcome pack and extras such as washing up liquid, tissues and much more to make our stay comfortable.

The apartments themselves are located in a quiet village just out side of Sami - an easy walk in 20 mins across the sea front, we love Ag Efimia - which is aprox 7 mins drive from the apartments, there are some lovely Taverners and a very pretty harbour. I would recommend a car as there are lots of nice places to visit this end of the island - Fiskardo is a must.

Would we go back - YES WE WILL

Mark thank you so much

Wonderful base to explore Kefalonia from

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Mark for a wonderful holiday. The apartment is great, just like the photos, and a very relaxing spot as the sea is only 50feet away, so you hear it constantly. Mark the owner was there to greet us, and was about the whole week to answer questions; all his advice was excellent, from local restaurants (we loved the Taverna Zervati just 5mins walk away) to remote beaches!

Sami is a pleasant 20min walk along the seafront away, and has a range of bars and restaurants as well as supermarkets etc, but Kefalonia is quite small, and with a car nowhere is over an hour away. The roads were quite quiet, and though some are narrow, it was easier than some Cornish lanes...

We loved it here, and hope to go back for a 2 week stay next time!

From the Owner

Fast becoming the highest quality and best maintained rental apartments in the area. 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.

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.
