Ithaca Kioni

Information about Kioni

Kioni Village Ithaca: The picturesque traditional settlement of Kioni lies in the southeast of Ithaca, 24 km from Vathy, in a verdant setting with unique attractions. It is built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a mountain, with little tiled roofed houses overlooking the picturesque port where small fishing boats are quietly mooring.

The village was built by the inhabitants who used to live in the mountainous village of Anogi, at the end of the 16th century. Very few houses survived the earthquakes of 1953 but the few ones remaining are very interesting, with renaissance architectural characteristics.

Today, this little paradise has grown rapidly into a busy and modern tourist resort, with many cafes and taverns lining the lovely port, private yachts mooring at the port, a lot of rooms for rent, boar rentals and some food stores.

    Magical Bay that became my creative catalyst
    Kioni took my breath away the moment we entered the bay passing the three dormant windmill ruins that stood like protective giants at its secluded entrance. The small bay sat sleepily at the foot of the lushness of the vegetation behind as the turquoise waters of the bay lapped the shallows so gently that you could do nothing but relax in its atmosphere. The whole experience of Kioni and the beautiful island of Ithaca bewitched my heart and mind so much that I wrote my first fictional romance about this magical island.
