  • Magnificent sea views
  • Fresh and contemporary
  • Vathy 10min drive

Nestled on the hillside within a few minutes’ drive of Vathy harbour, Villa Ino is a new two-bedroom property with its own pool and magnificent sea views. The décor is fresh and contemporary, with a nod to traditional Greek pension style via olive-green shutters framing French doors and picture windows, and antique-style, wrought-iron bedsteads.

You can lie in one of these beds and enjoy the views from the upper floor bedroom, or step out onto the wide, sun-warmed terrace for your morning coffee. Down on the ground floor there’s a shady pergola over the sofa and dining area, where you can enjoy the spectacular Ithacan sunrises and the magical starlit nights.

You might decide that with views like these from your very own terrace you are not inclined to dine out, but the bars and restaurants of the island capital Vathy are just 10 minutes away by car if you change your mind. In the high summer months, there is a local taverna available just a 5-minute drive away. And if you feel like the sea instead of your private pool, several of Ithaca’s iconic, white-pebble-turquoise-water beaches are within a 15-minute drive.

Villa Ino, along with Villa Atokos, is one of a pair of identical, detached properties, the only difference between the two being that the first floor bedroom terraces are ranged either left or right of the house to ensure privacy. The villas are situated quite closely together with a small trellis/hedge separating them. They would be ideal for two smaller families travelling together and still wanting to maintain a level of independence.

Customer Feedback

Everything just flowed so well from our landing in Kephalonia to our final destination Ithaca. Very efficient and organised. The taxi drivers went the Extra mile and we're so happy to share their enthusiasm for their beautiful country . Our representative Greta was amazing and so knowledgeable . Simpson attention to detail was above and beyond and I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends (in fact I have already done so ) .
Mr Sims – October 2017

We were both very lucky that the villa next door was not booked for the two weeks we were there, as we both agreed that it would probably have been intolerable, the two villas are too close, there is no privacy, you can see into each others areas from all the levels, you would also be able to hear each other at all times. The pigeon problem is so obvious as well, they were flying up to our villa everyday and shitting everywhere, this was then falling through the covering over the veranda, the Rep was aware of this as we pointed this out. The brochure does not reflect the actual villa and surroundings what so ever. 
Mr Knight – September 2017

Our holiday in Ithaca with Simpsons was wonderful with an outstanding villa in a beautiful and private location. The customer service and attention to detail through the whole experience was very impressive. This is the fourth year in a row we have booked with Simpsons and we have had an amazing experience on each occasion.
Mrs Wilson – August 2017

The service from Simpson Travel from my first telephone call to the airport departure was awesome. Everything ran so smoothly and friendly professionally. The opportunity to use the exclusive Simpson guests only restaurant Simpson was such a bonus, a 1st class travel company. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Mr Phillips – July 2017

A stress free travel experience as always. I feel fully confident travelling with you .

If you love peace and quiet then this is the place. The people of Ithaca are friendly and the food is lovely.
Miss Hagon – June 2016

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themelves, 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.
