NEW FOR 2021


One of three terracotta-coloured villas overlooking Polis Bay, Elia Beach House enjoys magical views across to Kefalonia and the private west-facing terrace is a wonderful spot to sit and watch the local fishing boats head out in the early evening. The sunsets here are spectacular and there’s a barbecue when you’re inspired to cook the catch of the day while you enjoy the sundowner of your choice. When you’re in need of a refreshing dip, a two-minute stroll will take you down to the beach where sunbeds and shades are available for hire and you’ll find a simple kantina serving delicious food and drinks throughout the day.

The accommodation feels spacious and comfortable, with two en-suite bedrooms (a double and a twin) and though Elia Beach House is one of a collection of three villas overlooking the bay, it enjoys a good degree of privacy with everything needed for a relaxing break on this idyllic island. The traditional village of Stavros on the hill is a 5-minute drive or 25-minute walk away - perfect for everyday essentials and a small selection of tavernas. Charming Frikes by the water is a further 10-minute drive and offers a wider variety of dining options. Self-drive boat hire is readily available for exploring the island from the sea and back on terra firma our Local Concierge can advise on guided walks and art workshops which can be arranged on request.

Elia Beach House shares a driveway with Lemonia Beach House and Rhodia Beach House. The villas are independent and perfectly suited to private bookings but collectively, they also work well for multi-generational gatherings or groups of friends travelling together.

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

The fabled land of Homer’s Odyssey and a safe harbour through the ages for Romans, Venetians and Ottomans, Ithaca is historic to the core: a beach holiday destination that comes with an epic story to match its beautiful landscape. The sweeping panorama of Vathy’s bay and a shoreline of eucalyptus-shaded coves give way to undulating hills of pine, olive and cypress groves, whilst timeless rural life plays out in the island’s unspoilt interior, ensuring that Ithaca remains a place to truly relax.

To help you unwind in style, we offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas, giving your Ithaca holiday a welcome touch of comfort.
