About Us

A peaceful rural retreat with outstanding views – a very private oasis

Kythera is a very special, unique and unspoilt island on the very southern tip of the Peloponnese. It is known as the birthplace of Venus and is blessed with numerous archaeological sites. Kythera is also fortunate to have a variety of beaches white everything  from white sand to rounded pebbles. Some have full facilities with bars and beach lounges to more remote smaller ones preferred by lovers and naturists. The island is served by regular flights from Athens and ferry services from Piraeus, Neapoli, Gytheo and Crete.

We are ideally placed for a fuss free escape whoever you are. Everyone get the same one-to-one personal service!

Location & Nearby Attractions

Unlike many of the more popular Greek islands Kythera is refreshingly quiet and relaxed and touted as ‘the perfect place to escape‘. But that doesn’t mean there is nothing to do! Check these out…


Kythera has many restaurants to choose from. Many feature local produce and specialties. Our favourites include Platanos, Skandeia, Taverna Filio, Psomoladea, Familia, Pierros, Toxoti and Kaleris.  You can find a comprehensive list here.

Sight Seeing

There are many archaeological sites, natural wonders, religious sites, beaches and walking tracks to explore. Check out Trip Advisor or local tour operator Drakakis Tours.


Kythera is home to over 20 beaches – some easy to find, others well hidden. Many have facilities like snack bars and beach lounges, others more ‘au natural’ like some of the bathers. There is something for everyone!

Bars & Lounges

There are many great bars and lounges around the island. Among our favourites are Fox Anglais, Koukos, Arachtopoleio and il Mercato Bar.

Biking & Hiking

Kythera has countless kilometres of walking tracks that all well marked and easy to master. Find out more at Kythera Trails. Kythera can be wonderfully explored on the two wheels of a mountain bike and is a popular new form of outdoor activity. A 182 kilometre network of mountain cycling routes is being developed on Kythera by the Kytherian Foundation for Culture & Development (ΚΙΠΑ). Bike hire and information is available here.
