Ithaca-Greece’s best kept secret

Moonlight on the bay of Vathy, surely one of the worlds most inspirational treasures. The home of Ulysses and Homer, Ithaca is a jewel in the Ionian Sea, where the friendly Ithacacian’s go about daily life without the stress of a modern world.

Dine in harbourside restaurants, where celebrities on super yachts, take advantage of anonymity and tranquility. Swim in untouched bays and beaches with clear blue waters or hike through hills clad in olive trees which have existed for centuries.


Odyssey Apartments in Vathy : Elegant accomodation with private harbour views and friendly professional hosts.


Porto taverna, Vathy: Visit Porto in Vathy for an authentic Greek fare. Try the barbequed octopus and fish roe.

Aegri Restaurant, Frikes: A table right on the bay try Ithacacian fish and the softest baby calamari with an Ithacacian white wine.

Calypso, KioniCalypso is also a table on the ‘Venetian Harbour’ with surrounded by azure waters. Dine on fresh white anchovies from Sicily (just across the sea) a glass of crisp Robolo and a Greek salad.
