Perks for the Parents

This family villa with a pool, just up the hill from the town of Sami with views of boats in the Ionian Sea, is close to beaches and tavernas and has a great garden for lounging, playing and relaxing. There are plenty of coves to explore nearby along the coast north of Sami. There are views over Sami Bay with Ithaki in the distance from the house. The pool is surrounded by sunbathing terraces and has a double hammock and bamboo sofa set for lazy lounging in the sun while the kids play.

Why Kids Love it

This lovely villa has a great pool with a separate children’s area, plus pretty gardens big enough for ball games, and a fun hammock to swing in. There are some great beaches safe for kids within a short drive, and the seaside village of Sami boasts great tavernas on the waterfront and a large selection of shops and a few takeaway places with souvlaki, pizza and other child-pleasing delights. The kids bedroom has 2 twin beds and 2 travel cribs can be added.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 nights. Arrival and departure times are flexible to your needs. Free pool towels provided along with cribs and high chairs. There is a secure parking area. The garden is fully enclosed with a fence. The pool is not fenced or gated but is set away from the house. There are no stair gates. The doors to the balconies of the bedrooms can be locked and the wall height is above the minimum of 1.2m. Electric gates ensure that members of the local goat herds don’t stray into the grounds. Antisamos beach, in the next bay from Sami, is worth the trip, with crystal clear waters and a white pebble beach.

About the Location

The residence is a 5 minute drive up a hill from the town of Sami midway along the long east coast of Kefalonia. Sami is an easy place to base yourself as a family, with tavernas and cafés lining the waterfront and a beach along the harbour.

Kefalonia, Greek Islands

Poppy fields and hidden beaches

The largest of the Ionian islands in western Greece, Kefalonia is a paradise island for families. It’s all about the white sand beaches, picnics in poppy fields and boat trips to hidden beaches. Visit the glamorous town of Fiskado in the north, go snorkelling in the clear water or hike in the hills.
