From Vathy a road winds its way south through a beautiful, natural, undulating landscape with only a very few houses and dramatic views to sea. This peaceful, southern part of Ithaca produces most of the island’s wine. Surrounding hillsides and valleys contain an attractive patchwork display of vineyards, olive groves and pine forest.
2.5 kilometres from Vathy, just off this road, lies this Villa (named after the island’s wild Strawberry Tree).
A rear barbecue terrace overlooks a vineyard; the side and front terraces look out across the sea to the Greek mainland. Bordered by succulents, herbs, lavender bushes and flowering shrubs and surrounded by olive trees, this is a comfortable and totally private retreat.
