Ithaka Guide

The island of Ithaka is part of the Ionian group of Greek Islands and is sandwiched between the mainland and its more popular neighbour - Kefalonia.

Ithaka covers an area of about 120 square kilometres and has a population of around 3000, though obviously this increases in the holiday season.

Ithaca remains unspoiled by the modern world and is synonymous for its' clear blue seas, lush green valleys and mountains.

With great beaches, traditional food, entertainment, busy bars or quiet solitude if you prefer, Ithaca has something for everyone.


Sami Guide

The town of Sami is located on the Greek island of Cephalonia which lies in the Ionian Sea. Sami is very much a tourist town and is located around 4 km to the north east of Antisamos Beach which is a particularly stunning beach which has some beautiful hills as a backdrop. However, to get the full beach experience on Cephalonia tourists should travel to Myrtos Beach which is to the south of Assos. The beach has white sand, limestone cliffs and crystal clear blue water. For this interested in history there are a number of archaeological sites and landmarks dotted around the island. These include the archaeological excavations at the Roman Villa in Skala and also the Acropolis of Sami which dates back to the 5th century BC. Another popular landmark is St. George's castle in the Livatho Valley which also dates back to Roman times. Naturally produced sites on the island include the large caverns, such as Drogarai Cave and the Melissani Cave, which are both located in Sami. Melissani Cave is particularly famous and features a vast underground lake, which is deep-blue in colour and best explored by boat.
