Gloriously positioned above the cliffs of Trapezaki Bay on Kefalonia’s south coast, this impressive modern villa is blessed with magnificent panoramic views over the Ionian Sea towards neighbouring Zakynthos.
Light, airy and superbly appointed with pared-back, contemporary styling, Trapezaki Bay View offers the perfect setting in which to unwind amid breath taking, unspoilt scenery. The beach, a 10 minute walk away is unspoilt with a taverna beachside and the quiet unspoilt valley of Trapezaki is peppered with hidden tavernas. A further 10 minute walk a couple of mini-markets can be found amongst simple country paths winding their way through fields, olive groves and orchards.
Built in 2012 to a very high specification, this ultra-modern take on the classic coastal villa is simply stunning. The epitome of urban chic, its sleek, dove-grey exterior is punctuated by gleaming floor-to-ceiling windows that reflect both the emerald green of the surrounding hillsides and the sparkling blue waters of the Bay of Trapezaki.
The interior has been cleverly designed to maximise the region’s inimitable quality of light while retaining a cool, relaxed ambience throughout. Minimalist décor and simple contemporary furnishings allow the ubiquitous, breathtaking sea views to take centre stage.
Downstairs, the open-plan layout encompasses a spacious lounge, kitchen and dining area, all opening onto the magnificent poolside terrace through two sets of sliding glass doors. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with the latest hi-tech appliances and immaculate white gloss cabinetry. An island unit doubles as a casual breakfast bar and there’s also a solid wood dining suite, ideal for family meals.
The table with the most impressive view, however, is to be found outside, shaded from the intense sun by a solid canopy and looking out across the elegant L-shaped infinity pool to the island-studded azure waters beyond. A built-in barbecue provides for simple yet delicious alfresco lunches and leisurely suppers under the stars.
With two bedrooms on the ground floor and two upstairs, the accommodation is both comfortable and flexible, with tasteful, high quality furnishings and immaculately presented en suite bath or shower rooms. The first floor bedrooms also enjoy private balconies with glass balustrades through which to relish the incredible sea views at any time of the day or night.
With such a wonderful location to relax in, turning a page of your book or taking the odd dip in your delightful private pool may be as energetic as you wish to be. Those looking for the occasional challenge, however, might head for the villa’s lower ground floor games room for a spot of table tennis, while the tree-lined sandy beaches of Trapezaki can be reached on foot from here in around 15 minutes.
Within a short drive of the property you’ll find a number of little tavernas and mini markets while this gorgeous island’s larger towns and quaint harbours are within easy driving distance should you feel in the mood for a spot of retail therapy or a greater choice of bars and eateries.
If complete relaxation, total comfort and a spectacular rural setting is your aim, Villa Trapezaki Bay View is certainly hard to beat.
