Blending character, charm and a welcoming atmosphere with modern luxuries and a stunning sea view, Crimson Villa has everything you need for an unforgettable island retreat. With space for four guests, this property would suit a small family or friends that want to enjoy the sunshine from the privacy of Ithaca island. Located on the northern side of Ithaca, not far from the charming town of Stavros and just a 10-minute drive from the white sands of Afales beach, this villa is everything you could want it to be.
From the moment you open the front door, the villa welcomes you in, with a homely, warm atmosphere created by the old firebrick walls, wooden floors and solid wood fixtures. Mixed in are modern appliances and contemporary furnishings that give moments of luxury, so every moment feels like a treat. On the ground floor there is a lounge, dining room and kitchen, all open-plan, with patio doors opening onto a sunny balcony. Whether everyone is gathered together around the table or sharing a bottle of chilled wine on the terrace, this space works for socialising as a group. An internal staircase leads up to a balcony, that overlooks the living and dining area downstairs, creating a social feel even between the two floors. On each floor there is a modern bathroom and a spacious bedroom, a twin on the ground floor and a double upstairs.
Outdoor living is irresistible at Crimson Villa, from the moment you arrive, the stunning views are hard to turn away from! The private swimming pool is perfect for cooling off on hot summer days, and evenings can be spent sitting back at the al-fresco dining table, settling in for a night of barbecues and entertaining.
Known as the homeland of Odysseus, Ithaka island is every bit as rugged, romantic and beautiful as it is described in the legend, leaving plenty for you to explore.

Crimson Villa is located in an area known as Pilikatai, on the breath-taking island of Ithaka, near to the large village of Stavros. Along with three other villas, Crimson Villa can be found in a private inclining property of 9 levels, surrounded by olive trees and boasting unlimited views of the surrounding area, whilst at the same time ensuring the privacy of every visitor that stays.
Known as the homeland of Odysseus, Ithaka island is every bit as rugged, romantic and beautiful as it is described in the legend. The natural beauty of this peaceful holiday destination easily charms and seduces travellers, with the ancient ruins, picturesque harbour villages and countryside walks offering something for everyone to explore. In fact the ruins of Odysseus' Palace aka Homer's School are less than a kilometre from the villa.
The villa benefits from complete privacy and far-reaching views yet located nearby Stavros; once a small fishing village and now a developed tourist resort, you have everything you could need nearby.
Ithaca’s rugged coastline is made up of limestone cliffs, bays and short strips of white sand. Several of the beaches are only accessible on foot or by boat. The nearest beach from the villas is the beach of the Ancient City of Stavros. Formed into a semi-circular lagoon, the beach is completely protected from the winds, offering a peaceful setting for you to rest on the white sand and swim in the glistening turquoise water.
Squeezed between Kefalonia and the mainland, the only way to access the island is by boat or a private jet, creating a feel of complete privacy and exclusivity. Guests can get a boat from Patras, Kefalonia, Astakos or Lefkada and have the option to enjoy a day cruise during the holiday to explore the surrounding coves, beaches and islands!

How to reach Ithaca island
Ithaca is one of the Ionian Islands and is closest to Kefalonia, Lefkas and the Greek mainland.
Ithaka has no airport so preference is to fly to Kefalonia then drive to the port of Sami (33km) where you can take a ferry to Vathy in the south of Ithaca.
Ferry services are fairly frequent, with sailings from Kefalonia, Corfu, Lefkas and Athens (Piraeus Port). There is also a limited route between Fiscardo (North Kefalonia)and the small port of Frikes.
Crimson Villa is an ideal holiday destination for families with children due to its nearby archaeological sites, safe swimming beaches and friendly atmosphere. The villa has a private terrace and a private pool for splashing about in.
The village of Stavros is just a five-minute drive from the villa, with two beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants and outdoor activities perfect for families. You’ll find the opportunity to take part in water sports on the island, and there are boat trips to explore the unique landscape, watch out for turtles and go swimming.
There are also child-friendly walking trails guiding you to special spots in the island like waterfalls, churches and windmills. Attending local fairs and gathering olives is also popular with families.

We went on vacation from 4 to 14 July 2017. It would have been really nice to stay even more there. The villas are beautiful, build in a rustic style, with a lot of space in them and really clean, as well as the pool. The kids really enjoyed it. The envoirment was peaceful and the owners were really friendly. It was no problem to comunicate with them as they knew to speak english prety well. We had all the facilities we wanted, prety good internet, the cooking equipement was nice. The view as well, it was amazing. The price was a mid range one. I hope I will come the next year as well, and I will try to convince my friends to come with me as well. Fully recommended! Thanks to Mr Vasilis and Mrs Diana Aravanis for all the help they provided when we had some little issues.
