Italy 2024: Call Judy & Tom to book exceptional houses.
Go before everyone else gets there.
Possibly our very favourite Greek island, Ithaca is dreamily beautiful, relatively unspoilt and populated with charming Ithacans, many of whom have spent much of their lives across the world in cities such as Melbourne, New York or London, but have returned home to their mythical island.
A sense of calm and peace pervades this beautiful place, whose attractions include quiet coves and lovely beaches; a cute capital, Vathi, which sits around a sheltered, horsehoe harbour; the traditional and picture-postcard village of Kioni; and some of the best but simple food to be found anywhere in the Greek islands.
Much loved by yachties who moor up during the summer months, Ithaca it is a great place for boating and will stay in your memory long after other islands have melted away.
