We have just returned from 2 weeks on Ithaca, staying at Cavos and had a fantastic time. The Captain was lovely, he made sure you knew he was there to help but left you to your own devices to enjoy the accommodation and surrounding gardens and pool. Everything was spotless (thanks to Julie) and even though the cottages were fully booked, we had the luxury of having the pool to ourselves the majority of the 2 weeks (this was in between visiting the various beaches). The cottages are very well maintained and the positioning is perfect if you are looking for a restful holiday with beautiful views and sunsets. You definitely need transport to get around, we hired a moped for the whole duration which was a great way to get about. Whilst we did not book through Ionian Villas, we contacted Sue White who was really helpful in organising the taxis/transfers. Ryanair delayed the flights which meant we had to book a private boat between Kefalonia and Ithaca (there and back) but it was worth it and meant we didn’t have to hang around waiting for the ferry. The island of Ithaca is the most beautiful Greek island we have visited (we have been to most) and we will definitely be back.
