Lying between the charming villages of Stavros and Frikes you will find Afales Cottage, a beautiful mid-19th Century traditional stone built Greek family home.

The careful renovation of the cottage has maintained the old-style exterior that now includes all the modern amenities for that essential relaxing Greek island holiday experience.

This one-bedroom cottage offers its guests a tastefully designed spacious open plan living area with satellite TV and a new extension which houses a large kitchen fitted with all the modern appliances for your daily needs. Completing the accommodation inside the cottage is the double bedroom with en suite shower room as well as an additional shower room.

Outside the cottage boasts a BBQ for that al-fresco dining experience and large private swimming pool set in an acre of beautiful gardens featuring only the native plants of Ithaka, a truly delightful setting to enjoy a relaxing swim or simply while away the day with your holiday read whilst taking in that magnificent view of Afales Bay.

Close by the cottage is the village of Agia Saranta where you will find a mini market for all your basic needs as well as fresh bread daily, perfect for breakfast outside underneath the old oak tree.

Just over a kilometre from Afales Cottage is the popular quaint village of Stavros with a good choice of cafes and tavernas or why not try Frikes for that waterside taverna lunch or coffee by the sea, either way you won’t be disappointed.  

Afales Cottage is a simple, humble, traditional home yet extremely comfortable and offers its guests a holiday in an authentic Greek house designed to offer you a relaxed experience, certainly one to remember.
