We love a good view, and this villa in the small Kefalonian community of Lourdas may just offer our favourite. Right in the middle of the towering Ainos mountains and the deep blue Ionian sea, it showcases the natural beauty of the Greek coastline.
The best way to take it all in is from the garden’s deck chairs, a paradisal spot to relax for hours with a fresh drink your hand. After admiring the stunning views, take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or taste some souvlaki from the built-in stone barbecue.
This home may look traditional from the outside, but it’s a different story in the open-plan living/dining area and kitchen, designed with modern furniture against coastal tones, Grecian artworks and Eames chairs. But outside is where you want to be.
Pretty and vivid, the colourful outdoor table is tailor-made for dreamy sunsets. If you want to explore further than the confines of the villa, head to the charming tavernas and glorious beaches of Kefalonia.
Home truths: * We recommend having a car for exploring the island, as this home is fairly remote
