Reggina purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Reggina chose Sami
Newly developed complex including modern furnishings and equipment, 10 meters from the sea. Located in a traditional and beautiful village 500m from Melissani cave, away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but close enough to walk to along the coast.

Lovely apartment in a perfect location. Perfect for easy access to the rest of Kefalonia. Reggina was an excellent host!
My boyfriend and I stayed in this apartment during our summer holiday to Kefalonia. The apartment was perfect for the 2 of us and is in a great location to be able to walk in to Sami but also easily explore the rest of the island (I definitely recommend hiring a car for this). The walk in to Sami is about 15/20mins, but is a nice stroll along the coast line. The pool area is clean and well maintained, along with the whole complex. The staff here are really friendly and helpful too- giving us recommendations of restaurants, bars and beaches. I would highly recommend staying here to other couples or families and would definitely return again.
Our stay at Eucalyptus was absolutely magical! The property managers were so helpful, the property was spacious and clean and they even provided champagne for my girlfriends birthday which was so generous. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here as it’s also in an ideal location for the islands hotspots, thank you!
Fabulous apartment near Sami.
We loved our stay at the Eucalyptus apartments (we were staying in the Tangerine Apartment).
The location is very good . . . with a bakery and small supermarket nearby, a good taverna 3 minutes walk away next to the beach, and it is a very pleasant 15 minute walk along the side of the beach to Sami town. It was an excellent location from which to explore the rest of the island (with hire car) as you can comfortably travel to all parts of the island and back again.
The apartment was very well appointed. It had everything we needed (iron, ironing board, hair dryer, coffee machine (x 2), fridge-freezer, toaster, kettle, electic hob, pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc. etc). It was well furnished (very comfortable bed) and imaculately clean. On top of which, the cleaners came in every three days and changed the bedding, towels and cleaned throughout.
We had a great view from our large, spacious balcony over the adjacent rooftop to the sea. As the apartment faces east the sun flooded into the balcony in the morning making for a very pleasant breakfast on the balcony with fresh bread and local honey from the nearby bakery (yum!).
Aris and Marianna (the two onsite managers) were both extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.
We would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be coming back. Thank you!
Great Property on a Beautiful Island
Always a pleasure to stay at the Eucalyptus apartments. This is our 3rd stay now & every year we always leave very happy with the standard of apartment & the helpful nature of Reggina & Harry. The apartments are stylish, very clean with good space. Within walking distance of one of our favourite tavernas & a good bakery plus a good base to explore the rest of the island by car.
We will always recommend the apartments to both couples & families.
We'll definitely be returning again :)
Lovely apartment in a perfect location
Just returned from a week in Karavomylos.
We were two adults and two teenagers. Tangerine apartment was great for our needs. Clean and tidy, with a sea view over the roofs of the neighbouring apartments. The balcony is a good place for a coffee in the early morning, as it is bathed in sunshine at that time, depending on the weather. We didn’t use the cooking facilities other than the coffee machine, preferring to eat out. The only slight negative for us was the TV and Internet. We were unlucky enough to have a couple of rainy days and with two teenagers to entertainment, we could have done with a slightly stronger WiFi signal, and a couple of English TV channels. Hopefully not an issue for anyone else. As for location we loved it. The village itself has two walkable restaurants, Zervati, which was lovely, small, family run and the karavomilos tavern, by the sea, which is a bit more touristy and probably better for a beer with a view rather than dinner. The village also has a lovely bakery just down the road, which we went to every day, either for a coffee and pastry and an ice cream or for a Greek brunch. The menu is quite eclectic, and the sweet things are done better than the savoury, but it’s definitley worth a visit. Outside of the village, Sami is a 15 to 20 minute walk away, via a coastal path. A note for wildlife lovers: when you cross over a small concrete bridge, covering a stream full of reefs, spend a few minutes looking in the water and you should see the local terrapins, big and small. They’re very cute! I think they are used to being fed, as they pop their heads up expectantly. Sami is bigger, but not hectic, at least when we went. Our favourite places to eat (don’t forget we had two fussy teenagers) were the Tereza, which had really friendly service and monster pizzas and our favourite, Mangiari, where the Greek kids go for kebabs. It’s basically a fast food joint, where we just ordered a load of kebabs, pittas, fries... a nice change from a Greek salad. Away from Sami another restaurant worth visiting for its food and for the beach next to it is Agia Paraskevi, a five minute drive north. The food is standard Greek fayre, but very tasty, the kefalonian meat pie is very nice, but remember you’re eating goat, not beef.
The other activity I would recommend is hiring a boat out of Agia Effimia, 15 minutes drive north. A great day out for all of us, we used a company called yellow boats.
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.
