Hello Guys you sent me some emails for Ithaca Greece and Voila  …..

So first of all lets begin with this beautiful Island.

ithaca-01

The island of Ithaca is among the most picturesque islands in Greece. The strict architectural design and the rich vegetation are its main characteristics.

Vathy, the capital, is amphitheatrically built around the sheltered bay and has lovely neoclassical buildings. Ithaca is an ideal holiday resort with lovely beaches spread around the island.

Ithaka is a separate regional unit of the Ionian Islandsregion, and the only municipality of the regional unit.

The island has been inhabited since the 2nd millennium BC. It may have been the capital of Cephalonia during the Mycenaean period and the capital-state of the small kingdom ruled by Odysseus. The Romans occupied the island in the 2nd century BC, and later it became part of the Byzantine Empire. TheNormans ruled Ithaca in the 13th century, and after a short Turkish rule it fell into Venetian hands (Ionian Islands under Venetian rule).

This is a small place ideal for families and romantic couples. Swim in the crystal water, walk along trekking paths, have your meal in fish taverns and chat with the welcoming locals. In the day, enjoy the hot sun and the clean water, while in the evenings stroll along the beach promenade of Vathy and have a relaxing drink with view to the night sky. Filiatro, Sarakiniko and Agios Ioannis are amazing beaches of Ithaca island, while you will find many other secluded coves to swim. You can go for holidays or as a day trip to Ithaca Greece from Kefalonia.

I have two hotels to suggest the first one is like a fairy tale of style and it is called 

Perantzada Hotel

Perantzada… 1811 Art Hotel in Ithaca island is a newly opened Art Hotel located at the picturesque port of Vathy on the island of Ithaca, off the western coast of Greece.

In the beginning there was a 19th century neoclassical mansion that even the eye of the most common observer could transform to a unique architectural masterpiece.

All great names of contemporary design, like Varner Panton, Tom Dixon, Ingo Mauer and Philip Stark are hosted here. Feel the Ionian breeze, rest on the Belle Epoque armchairs or walk on the 19th century Persian carpets. Meet up with exquisite artwork by Nikos-Yiorgos Papoutsidis, Steven Antonakou and Antonis Kyriakoulis.

Amongst these 19 rooms, you will find Double rooms with sea view and/or with private balcony, Executive Suites and Junior Suites. Begin your day with a breakfast composed of local bakery home made cakes, pies and jams, and enjoy the sunshine by our infinity pool.

Mentor Hotel 3 star 

The Mentor hotel is one of the most characteristic coastal buildings in Vathi. Built in 1969, the first organized hotel on the island, Mentor can accommodate 70 people, includes a restaurant and has modern facilities. It has been operating under the current management since 1987. Its last major renovation was completed in 2011.

The 4 suites, 30 double-bed and 2 single rooms are equipped with bathroom, air condition, TV, mini bar, safe box, direct dial telephone and wi-fi connection.

The major advantage of the hotel is its premier location. Located a few meters away from the sea, it offers amazing view of the picturesque bay and the boats that anchor in the port of Vathi. Being a minute away from the square and the shopping centre, it provides easy access to all destinations, at a walking distance. At the same time, from the hotel location one can reach some of the most beautiful beaches, such as Filiatro or take the boat for the beach of Gidaki from the main square.
