This spectacular property is situated at the entrance of the bay of Vathi, which happens to be the main harbor and town on the island of Ithaca, Greece. The property, with its 100 hectares, is surrounded on 3 sides by the sea, like a perfect peninsula of privacy. From sea level, the land rises to just over a hundred and forty meters at its summit.
From there, the view is splendid: dominating the main harbor, the sight encompasses views over the whole Southern part of the island, part of its greater sister, Cephalonia, further in the distance, the mountain of Kathara with its famous monastery, and turning to the North and North-East, you will see the island of Lefkada together with many smaller Ionian islands nestled lazily at the base of the ever stretching range of the mountains of Southern Epirus. On a clear day, you will end the 360-degree panorama with a glimpse at the Peloponnese.
Approaching the classically proportioned villa through a grand scale garden terrace that is graced with calming fountains and cooling lawns, you are immediately made aware of the impending luxury and quality that is to follow inside this magical retreat. Standing at the beautifully crafted iron and glass front door one sees through the house and loggia beyond to neighboring Atticos Island floating in the clear Ionian waters and mainland Greece beyond. This is no ordinary experience but one of those that may be temporarily enjoyed but a privileged few.
