The simple white washed cottage was built over a hundred years ago. It has been renovated and updated to make a comfortable family home but still retains its old world character with its arched windows, ancient shutters and original wood ceilings. It is light and airy, with at least 2 windows in each bedroom.Two French doors open on to the sun terrace from the open plan living room kitchen.
The kitchen is newly built with a full cooker and large fridge/freezer. There is also a large shower room containing a washing machine. The main bedroom has a double bed and French doors to the front of the cottage. The other two bedrooms both have twin beds. There is also a comfortable fold down bed.
The cottage floor is tiled in terracotta throughout. Outside, the large vine covered terrace has panoramic view of the surrounding cypress and olive clad hills and valleys and the mountain village of Exoyi. The cottage is set in half an acre of olive and almond trees on winding country lane 5 minutes drive from the village of Stavros and 2 minutes from the tiny fishing port of Frikes. The nearest beach is 4 minutes drive.
Rhiannon Cottage in the heart of Northern Ithaki
On our small island of Ithaca, nothing is too far away. Take the opportunity to discover the island of Ulysses, rent a car, a bike or walk the tracks and roads that lead you through this gem of the Ionion, the Homeric Ithaki, where it is said that once you have set your eyes on it, you are destined to return over and over again.
