NEW FOR 2022

Good to know... Loutsa Waterside is being refurbished for 2022. Interior images are 3D digitals intended for guidance only. We are pleased to offer a 5% discount until new photographs are published in the spring.

If your idea of heaven is a luxury pied-a-terre just a stone’s throw from the sea, this chic little house ticks all the boxes. In the same idyllic location as neighbouring Loutsa Villa and Villa Alba, Loutsa Waterside is a newly built stone property offering every modern convenience in an enviable spot by the picturesque inlet that leads to Vathy harbour.

Epitomising elegant simplicity, clean lines and contemporary furnishings ensure the studio-style space feels light, bright and discretely upmarket, yet nothing is overdone and the house keeps a harmonious connection with the natural surroundings. Doors lead out onto the shaded terrace where the tantalising views of the water are a constant distraction and the beach is just a barefoot stroll away. Lazy days spent drifting between land and sea are a joy and it doesn’t take long for the relaxed pace of island life to weave its magic in a home-from-home is as charming as this. Within easy walking distance, you'll find a café and an excellent family-run taverna, specialising in fish but also offering a wide range of local dishes; sitting here by the waterfront to enjoy lunch under the trees is a treat, with the broad panorama of Vathy Bay stretching out before you. Little fishing boats come and go and above the cove, two old Venetian cannons still stand guard. The sea is clear enough to watch a myriad of small fish swim back and forth without ever dipping so much as a toe in the water, but we highly recommend a mask and snorkel when bathing, to transport you into their beautiful world. When dusk falls, fire up the barbecue and settle in for a night beneath the stars, or venture into Vathy for a little more sparkle and a meal at one of the tavernas around the harbour.

Loutsa Waterside is a lovely self-contained property enjoying its own independence and privacy, perfect for two and well-placed for exploring the island. However, it can also be booked in conjunction with Loutsa Villa and/or Villa Alba, when it offers an excellent option for multi-generational groups.

Looking for 10 nights..? Why not add a 3-night stay in a boutique hotel in Kefalonia to your villa holiday. To find out more, view our 10-night holidays in Greece.
