Villa Aretusa
Dexia Bay, near Vathy, Ithaka
Charming Villa set amongst a lush backdrop of rural Ithaka
1 bedroom villa with private pool
  • Sleeps 2
  • Private Swimming Pool
  • Car Hire
  • Air Conditioning

Did Odysseus land in secret at this stunningly beautiful bay, and then conceal his plundered treasure in the Nymph’s Cave on the hillside above? Let the scholars argue about the myth, the fact remains that Dexia Bay is the ideal place for any wanderer to make their landfall.

Surrounded by hills and guarded by a rocky islet it’s hard to believe that this unspoilt crescent of pebbles and sand is only a few minutes’ stroll from the bustling centre of island life, Vathi’s main waterfront plateia.

Occupying an elevated position above the bay, and set in landscaped gardens amongst the olive trees, this quaint villa is perfect for couples who want to enjoy an ‘away from it all’ relaxing break whilst being close to all the amenities of the town and a short stroll down to Ithaka’s only Blue Flag beach.

Built especially for couples each house has a large open plan lounge, dining and kitchenette area complete with feature fireplace and much thought has gone into the fittings and furnishings, which include satellite TV and DVD player. The kitchenette has a fridge, full cooker and dishwasher.  A shower room/toilet completes the ground floor accommodation.

A spiral staircase accesses the main feature of each house - a romantic, double gallery bedroom.

Villa Aretusa has a patio area with shade, seating and sun loungers, a BBQ for relaxed al fresco dining, and a swimming pool for cooling off on those long, sunny Ithakan afternoons.

Paved pathways wind through the lovely gardens, where the perfect spot for quiet relaxation and reflection can be found.

For those who wish to embark on their own private “odyssey”, the famous Nymph’s Cave is near by whilst the fascinating ancient village of Paleochori with its ruined churches and faded frescoes lies another half hour beyond with the dramatically situated Perachori village (and tavernas!) close by.

Villa Aretusa is a perfect hideaway on this delightful Ionian Island.
