Renovated traditional house, in the island of Kythera, birthplace of Aphrodite. Our home is in the quiet village of Karavas, known for its springs and running water. A great place to relax, enjoy the distant views and walk along the streams.
Our property is made up of two separate houses, each with two bedrooms and each accommodating 4 people, both with modern amenities (including kitchens, showers, telephone, Wi-fi Internet ). Both houses are equipped with built-in air conditioning, and House 1 has a wood fireplace for the cold months. The houses share beautiful views, and gardened terraces that run down to the stream, with shady trees and a picnic table, all of which are accessible only to guests. The gardens produce seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs that visitors are invited to enjoy.
The two houses are independent to each other and guests have full, private access to their own house. Each house has two bedrooms (accommodating 4 people in total). The individual kitchens are attached to the main buildings but are accessed through their own doors through the courtyard. House 1 has one bathroom with toilet on the upper level, and a toilet downstairs. House 2 has two bathrooms with toilet, one on each level. Both houses share full private access to the gardens and to the stream below. Each house can be rented separately or together.
Interaction with guests
We will be happy to offer assistance to guests during their stay. We are, however, active field archaeologists and we are often away for fieldwork and academic responsibilities. Lita's parents, however, live near-by and they take care of the properties. They will be happy to assist in any way possible.
Other things to note
Our property is ideal for visitors who are looking for a quiet, romantic get-away, where modern comfort, spectacular views, and beauty of unspoiled nature blend together for a peaceful and relaxing stay.
We expect visitors to act as though they were staying in their own home.

I love to travel and experience new places and cultures, and meeting new people and sharing ideas. My Kytherian heritage is something I'm very proud of, and I would be very happy to share my knowledge and experience of this beautiful corner of the world!
