The Property is situated at the entrance of Vathi Bay. This Bay is the main harbor and town of Ithaca. The property is a one-of-a-kind Peninsula with views encompassing the Southern part of the island. In the distance the mountain of Kathara with its famous monastery is in clear sight. Turning to the North and North-East, you will see the island of Lefkada. Beyond, lay the smaller Ionian Islands nestled lazily at the base of the Southern Epirus Mountains. The property’s land is covered with rich vegetation composed of the wild species encountered in the Ionian region. As you continue to experience this unique Peninsula, you will encounter fields of lavender, olive groves, and a quaint private vineyard.

The spacious library, contemporary media room, and state-of-the-art “Chefs Kitchen” complete the perfect amenities package.
Worldwide famous as the home of Odysseus, Ithaca symbolises the return to the haven,the discovery and the fulfillment. Despite its proximity to Kefalonia (2km northeast) it is much more peaceful, quiet and undiscovered from it, thus being an ideal place for alternative activities and a holiday living up to the standards of the most demanding ones amongst us.
With its 27-kilometre long and 6.5-kilometre large mountainous surface, it boasts plenty of hiking as well as mountain bike trails in a sequence of blue and green alongside the coast and through olive, cypress, pine, oak, arbutus and carob trees up on the hills.
