The space

One-off feature
A small house, tucked in a tangle of nature on the flank of Mount Neritos and overlooking the sparkling sea that stretches towards Cephalonia. Sitting in a tiny hamlet on undiscovered Ithaca, surrounded by groves of olives, cypress, figs and lavender, this is an idyllic and peaceful place.

General Info
Kandiliotika is a much-loved island home in a magical setting, whatever the season. The small house, which sleep 3 people, has been carefully restored and joined together and it is not only comfortable but stylishly and artistically furnished. The house sits on the side of Mount Neritos, completely surrounded by terraces of trees, and the stillness is only broken by goat bells that float on the air, cicadas that rattle, and the sea that murmurs just below. The position of the house offers dramatic views and breathtaking sunsets, and Kandiliotika is perfect for those looking for a hidden retreat for painting, writing, composing, yoga, snorkelling, swimming, reading, relaxation and renewal. Ithaca is a beautiful, rugged and untouched place which welcomes visitors with its simple pleasures.

Details on the area surrounding the property/accommodation
The island is dramatically beautiful, rugged, relatively undeveloped, green and mountainous with steep blue indented bays and charming little harbours. It’s a small workaday place, never a land of plenty, and even its gradual tourism has not really stemmed the de-population. But it has magnetism, a natural grace, and an energy-giving power which draws in those who need renewal, uplift and inspiration in their lives. Don’t miss a climb at sunset above Exoghi (Out of Earth) to the monastery on the summit, to witness the 360 degree view across the shipping-routes and islands of this archipelago. Ithaca is just a short boat ride from Cephalonia which is just as beautiful and well worth a visit.
You will need a car. Nearest beach and and shopping area 3 minutes drive.

We loved staying at this beautifully decorated house. The view is breathtaking and every evening we were greeted by the chimes of goat bells. It was also conveniently placed so we could get anywhere around the island relatively quickly, while only being a few minutes away from a …
