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 arranged 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.

Arriving in Kefalonia, one member of our party suffered a serious medical emergency resulting in a stay in the hospital. Lana and Graham could not have offered more support, assistance or flexibility, this was in addition to a fabulous stay at the Blue Jasmine Hotel. Notably, all of the other guests were really supportive too and our family truly appreciated this, leaving us with a sense of community from such a short stay. Breakfast at the Blue Jasmine terrace followed by pool sessions and table tennis were lovely. Our second week at Villa Ino in the mountains of Ithaca provided much needed R&R. Unparalleled snorkelling, a tranquil olive grove background to a stunning view and the well-appointed villa did not disappoint. Judith's directions ensured we soaked up many local experiences and the privacy was enjoyed. Thank you Simpson Travel staff for all your support and accommodation. Truly first class.

A fantastic holiday in Ithaca with the excellent Simpson Travel company. Villa Ino was glorious and the customer service was first class. We will be booking with Simpson Travel again.
The Southgate family – July 2018
Everything just flowed so well from our landing in Kefalonia 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 Travel's 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
Our holiday in Ithaca with Simpson Travel was wonderful with an outstanding villa in a beautiful and private location. The customer service and attention to detail throughout the whole experience was very impressive. This is the fourth year in a row we have booked with Simpson Travel 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 a restaurant in Sami as a base whilst waiting for the ferry to Ithaca 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.

Mr Dale – June 2016
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
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.
