Our View
This is a fabulous house for anyone wanting a great holiday by the sea in Greece. The location and setting of this new house are totally magical. The position above a small beach with a wonderful lunchtime taverna is beyond compare.

The villa is very private with spectacular views across the bay to the picture-postcard village of Kioni which is two minutes in the RIB. It is a joyful one minute’s walk down to a small beach below the house. 

Spend your days by the pool, at the beach taverna supping on an ice cold Mythos beer or out on the RIB. For those who love waterskiing this boat is a major plus - early morning skiing is a great way to start the day.

The owner is an interior designer and it really shows. She has created a wonderful sense of calm throughout the house with cool white walls in every room. This calm is punctuated with splashes of colour in the paintings and accessories. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a local lady who can come and help with suppers if you want.

The pool area is big and generous. A huge table under the shaded pergola allows for a stunning setting at night with views of twinkly lights across the bay.

The bedrooms have all been designed with fresh colours, modern furniture & lovely bathrooms (there are Korres products for you on arrival - including shampoo and conditioner!). The sitting room is light and spacious with extraordinary views across the bay. 

The owners are very sporty and have generously provided waterskis and wake boards for their guests to use during the morning when the sea is at its calmest.

We really can’t fault this house, with the Greek sun blazing and the delicious Greek salad beckoning there are few better places to spend your summer holiday.
Local Information
Ithaca is the second smallest and the most under-developed of all the Ionian islands. There is magic at every turn - one of Greece’s most beautiful islands without a doubt. It is a popular island with the local yachting fraternity and the beautiful flotillas can be seen out on the open seas.

The villages have brightly coloured doors and rough walls, lost under countless layers of white wash.

Kioni is one of the nicest villages on the island with three beaches. It has 5 tavernas and 2 bars. There are some lovely little shops for present buying, lots of different jewellery shops, a great grocery store for provisions (and some lovely fresh produce) as well as a good bakery. 

During the cooler months it is lovely to  enjoy one of the countless walks on the island, venture coast to coast and try any one of the lovely tavernas on the island. There are some sites and museums dedicated to Homer who’s Odysseus is said to have left his Penelope on Ithaca during his epic journey. 

There is a tiny weeeeny ’canteen’ on the beach directly below the house (1 minute walk) where you can get delicious sardines, calamari and Greek salad. An ice cold Mythos beer is a must. This little taverna is also open one night a week for slow cooked pork.

Frikes is the next nearest village where there is a very good fish taverna and many more bars and shops.

Visit one of the surrounding islands - the deserted island of Atokos is opposite Kioni bay and is a wonderful place for snorkelling. It has Robinson Crusoe beaches and there are no residents so enjoy the turquoise waters in the peace and quiet!
