Sami Guide

The Greek town of Sami is located on the north east coast of the island of Cephalonia. It is a busy working port that is located around 20 km from Argostoli, the island's capital. The picturesque town lies on a wide bay with a long tree lined waterfront and has lovely views across to the neighbouring island of Ithaca. There are a number of bars, restaurants and tavernas located along the waterfront promenade where the day's fishing catch can often be seen on display. The town's nearest beach, Antisamos beach, is a short walk from the town and has a long stretch of white pebbles and is great for swimming in. There is also Karavomilos beach which is 2 km from the town and the resort of Aghia Efimia whish is 8 km from Sami.

The island has two ferry ports along with a cruise boat jetty. Greek ferries have improved greatly over the years and now a ferry journey over to the mainland, for a day's shopping in Patras is a real treat.


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.
