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.

Beautiful apartment overlooking the sea

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an excellent stay in the Magnolia apartment. We strongly agree with previous reviews regarding the stylish, spacious,immaculate modern apartment in a wonderful location.

The welcome basket of local produce including wine and honey was an indication of the level of personnel service provided by Mark and Regina which continued throughout our 2 week stay.

We would highly recommend these apartments to our friends and family and will definitely return.

Thank you from the Teasdale family

Very nice apartments.

  • 5 of 5

Everything is maintained very well, clean and comfortable. Wonderful beds and mattresses, interior. Large balcony where we had breakfast and dinner and admire the sea. Many dishes and necessary things, salt, sugar, pepper and oil. We had a compliment: wine, bread, sweets. Thank you) Mark is very friendly and always willing to help. The only thing I did not like - is no oven (it is not a problem if you are not going to cook) and the smell in the bathroom (think of the enclosure). Location was perfect for us. You can walk on foot and walk to the underground lake Melissani, about 7 euros a ticket. Near the apartment is excellent tavern at Lake Karavomylos. We rented a car and drove around the whole island. The beach Antisamos is very good. It is a pity that we had only 3 days . We will definitely return . Certainly I recommend!

Magnolia - Modern, stylish apartment in good location.

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by the apartment as soon as we arrived - its clean lines, modern style, furnishings and equipment were excellent. With patio doors onto the balcony from both living area and bedroom, it had easy access to sit in the sun in the morning, with a view between 2 other buildings to the sea, about 50 metres away. The large bathroom and shower were excellent, and the bed was large and very comfortable. We were surprised and very pleased to receive 2 visits by the cleaners during our stay, during which towels and bed linen were changed - you don't often get this for a stay of 1 week. The location in Karavamilos was good - we prefered this to being in the busy centre of Sami, which we could reach anyway with a 30 minute walk along the sea's edge path. There are 3 very good tavernas in the village, all with a different style, a bakery-cum-cafe with delicious Kefalonian pastries and cakes, and a mini-market (expensive compared to those in Sami). The apartment was also within 5 minutes' walk of the cave at Melissani - well worth a visit. Above all, Mark, the Manager, was extremely friendly and helpful. He seemed to be available on site all the time (don't think he had time for leisure!) and dealt with a couple of minor issues we had promptly and efficiently, including providing a toaster (there was only a sandwich maker), and repairing a toilet seat that had worked loose. My only reservation would be that the complex, though quite small, could be quite noisy in peak season when full, as the layout of the buildings created a bit of echo. However, this was only occasional during our stay.

Overall, I would book this apartment again if returning to the area, and would have no reservations in recommending it to others.

Sehr schönes Apartment!!!

  • 4 of 5

Unser Apartment (Magnolia) war sehr schön und modern eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Für 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder vollkommen ausreichend! Die Betreuung durch Marc Whitehouse und Regina Retzepoglou vor Ort war super, sie hatten hilfreiche Informationen und waren

jederzeit hilfsbereit. Unser Fazit: Falls wir wieder nach Kefalonia reisen sollten, dann auf jeden Fall in dieses Apartment!!

Viele liebe Grüße noch einmal auf diesem Weg.

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' 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.
