This unique estate, the Old Village as the local people call it, stressing this way its importance for all the inhabitants not only of the village but for the whole area of Sami, is facing the old venetian road that connected Argostoli, Dilinata and Sami.
The property covers a total area of 17829,43 sq.m. the 3998,54 of which are within the village boundaries.
The lush vegetation and the old stone ruins it contains testify to its former use not only as a farm but as an important productive unit for the whole area, that employed until the destructive earthquakes of 1953, almost the whole village.
The estate that belonged for a long period of time, and more specifically from 1750, to one of the oldest and most prominent families of Kefalonia, remained for many years an iconic landmark for Sami. The old ruins are the remains of the family's residence, an old and beautiful manor house that protected the villagers even from the bombings during the german and italian occupation. There are also ruins of horse stables, drying floors, wine-making areas, stone-built paths and walking courtyards.
On the upper part of the estate, there is also an olive grove with 100, centuries-old, olive trees.
This rare property that overlooks Sami Bay, makes a unique opportunity for investors, who would like to reclaim and bring to life truly exceptional pieces of local history, even with european funding programmes.
