Little changes through time

After many years, I had the chance to enjoy a two-week holiday in one of the best islands in Greece. My studies led me to France where I currently live, but as a Greek woman I was always attracted by the Greek islands, especially Ithaca. The time I spent there was unique, in Vathy where we stayed I could feel a very cosmopolitan aspect full of bars, restaurants, shops and everything you might need. Rent a bike and go to the beautiful beaches, Filiatro, Sarakiniko, Agios Ioannis. You can seat at the beach all day, you will never get bored of the blue green water. The island was quiet with relaxing atmosphere, perfect for my tastes. It was my second visit after 12 years and found very little changes to the scenery of life.

Stayed at the Aristoteis again in July for 2 weeks -its the perfect location for late evenings out.

You are always made to feel very welcome and the apartments are very clean. I also really like having a kitchenette!!

Will be back!!!

Janet and I have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks at the Nostos Hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean, simply but adequately furnished, and all had a balcony overlooking the bay, the pool or the mountains. The hotel facilities were excellent with a beautiful pool and outside bar area. Nicki and Andreas were just delightful, and always on hand to help and advise.Thank you so much!

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at the Veronis Apartments. Makis Veronis was very helpful and considerate, but never intrusive. The cleaning was excellent with the sheets and towels replaced every 2 days.
The views were spectacular.

Given the legends of mythology associated with Ithaca, I was surely convinced that there was something magical about this place. Five years have passed since my last visit in Ithaca and my memories remain strong. I was impressed by the atmosphere and natural beauty of this small island. Vathy where we stayed is a wonderful village with many tourists during the high season. The villages of Ithaca are ideal for walks between the hidden alleys and narrow streets. Everyone will share a nice word with you and help you explore the island. After all, Greeks are widely known for their hospitality. Ithaca has the best beaches with green crystal waters and white-pebbled shores. I visited almost all of them, during a period of 2 weeks. I personally recommend Agios Ioannis, Frikes and Skinos bay. Most of them are easily accessed but in any case you will need a bike. Not all the beaches are organized, actually very few are organized. Some of them have to be reached on foot. The restaurants in Ithaca introduce their local products and offer an unforgettable experience which comes from the authentic recipes and fresh ingredients of their land. Hopefully, I gave you an idea of what to expect from this beautiful island. Enjoy!

Had a wonderful holiday in 2010. Nicki and family are perfect hosts. Nothing was a bother to them. 5* accomodation and food. We would highly recommend this hotel. Location only a 2 minute walk from harbour area with wonderful restaurants. Hope to be back later this year.

Revitalise body and soul

A visit to Ithaki is like Kephalonia in miniature. The ferry trip across from Sami is an early morning pleasure. If it is a day trip, it is a good idea to take a car, for ultimate freedom on the island. However, if it is a holiday there is car hire on the island. I stayed at Penelope Studios near the harbour in Vathy, the capital. Perfect accommodation with large apartments, well equipped including T.V., even a toaster! A good size swimming pool was a very welcome addition.

Vathy is a pleasant small town, occupying several tavernas and bars. Some of these surround the square. While I was visiting a few years ago, Greece won the European football tournament. The match was screened on large TVs in the square. After the victory, the islanders celebrated by driving around the town in cars or on scooters, beeping horns. Meanwhile fishing boats joined in with their hooters. Later there was a grand firework display. Festivities went on late into the night and it was great to be part of their success.

Boat trips depart from Vathy harbour. One boat sails around the island while another day excursion goes to Lefkas and the Onassis island of Skorpios. On the way, the skipper shows the passengers a cave in which a WW2 u-boat hid from their enemies.

The drive from the capital towards the north of the island is very pretty. Climbing up into the mountains, the views out over the Ionian sea are spectacular. There are attractive, small villages to drive through. One of these is Lefki, which has old houses bordering the road and an abundance of colourful flowers spilling over their garden walls. Dotted along this stretch of coastline are several coves, for a welcome dip.

The small village of Frikes is positioned at the north of Ithaki and is a good stopover for lunch. Tavernas border the harbour and I enjoyed a meal of Souvlaki and Greek salad. Driving out of Frikes, beside the road to Kioni, is a perfect cove. It is small and quiet, perfect for a swim and an hour of relaxation. I shared my time there with a little girl and her grandmother. I was envious of their lifestyle, such natural beauty on their doorstep with long sunny days in which to enjoy it.

Whether it is a day visit or a week's holiday, Ithaki cannot fail to revitalise body and soul. I very much look forward to revisiting this little island.

Thank you very much for the last summer rest, we spent a good time in your villa. I told about our rest all my friends.
The atmosphere was very excellent, the rooms were clean and light and the place was comfortable.
