“The best holiday cottage in Ithaca”

My partner and I had a superb holiday at Daphnae Cottage for 2 weeks in September. The cottage itself is beautifully maintained by the owners, Gerasimos and Maria, with everything you need for a restful and comfortable stay. The garden is delightful, with an astounding view over Afales Bay, and contains lots of lovely features including heavenly smelling lavender, a hammock, a barbecue and lots of different areas to relax in.
One feature we found particularly useful was the excellent mosquito screens over all the windows, as we usually suffer badly with mosquito bites - not one got in during our stay!
The cottage has a very good cooker, fridge freezer, iron, hair dryer etc and the owners were very thoughtful in providing essentials such as bottled water, fruit, milk, cheese, yoghurt etc. The bathroom is well designed, with a good shower and excellent hot water system.
I am a keen walker and loved the cobbled paths down the mountain, and the solitude of the cottage. It is a 1-2 minute walk from the road, which was perfect for us, but probably not suitable for someone with difficulty walking or with very young children. You will definitely need a car to rent Daphnae Cottage, and there is a parking space virtually opposite the path down to the cottage.
It is a half hour walk to the nearest beach (Afales), which is magnificent and wild, and by car about 8 minutes. It's a 10 minute drive to the nearest village, Stavros, which has delightful shops and restaurants, a pharmacy, butcher and greengrocer. Frikes is another beautiful port to visit, about 12 minutes away by car.
We have holidayed Ithaca every year for the last 4 years, and this is the loveliest accommodation we have stayed in. I would definitely go back there, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who loves peace, relaxation and solitude.
