The place: Kefalonia, Greece. The accommodation: a clean and bright one-bedroom apartment with a living/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and, crucially, a balcony overlooking the countryside. This is not just any one-bed apartment though. It’s a one-bed apartment within short walking distance from one of the most stunning beaches in the world, Myrtos, and it will only cost you £32 ($44) a night.
This is not a drill. This idyllic Airbnb property is almost absurdly affordable. The brand new, totally modern complex even has a vegetable garden from which guests are encouraged to pick and eat whatever delicious produce they want free of charge!
The apartment is the perfect base from which to explore the island, with the beautiful villages of Divarata, Agia Efimia and Assos all nearby. If you fancy experiencing some natural wonders, check out Melissani Lake or Drogarati Cave. And for fun night life and shopping, visit Kefalonia’s main town or Fiskardo (also known as the St Tropez of Greece).
It is worth noting that you may have to hire a car if you want to explore the island properly. But with all the money you’re saving on accommodation, this really isn’t an issue. Plus, being able to walk down to the beach is one of the greatest luxuries on the planet, especially when it’s the white sands and clear blue waters of Myrtos.
Summer can’t come soon enough!
