We have just spent an amazing week at Adastra and will definitely return. Right from the very beginning Nikos and Angeliki went out of their way to make our holiday completely stress free -nothing was too much trouble (transporting us from the port and even buying our tickets for us and finding out the boat times as the timetable is not easy for non Greek speakers).
They are the most gracious hosts I have ever encountered and the apartment itself is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony is truly breathtaking and Ithaca itself is the most beautiful and unspoilt place I have been. The best bits of our holiday were being shown around the island by Nikos and Angeliki on our first day, including stunning views from the monastery and the site of Odesyus' palace.
Vathi itself had a lot to offer in the way of nice restaurants and bars, whilst retaining its unspoilt charm. We particularly recommend Sirenes, Liberetto and Portoni in Vathi and Rementzos in Frikes. The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring Ithaca whilst being within easy walking distance of Vathi (down some stone steps so you do need to be relatively fit). It is advisable to hire a car for getting around but the roads do take a bit of getting used to.
Nikos was so helpful in pointing out the best beaches to visit and explaining how to walk to Gidaki beach (well worth the hike).
Breakfast on the balcony was also a lovely touch- especially with Angeliki's lovely home made cakes. I would highly recommend Ithaca and Adastra suites for an idyllic getaway if you want unspoilt white pebble beaches with crystal clear water, good food and total relaxation, coupled with absolute luxury. The apartment was so amazingly peaceful with just the sounds of the cockerel, crickets and on Sunday the chanting from the church - stunning.
