The pool, surrounded by lavenders and butterflies.The entrance and original gate. Very very old. Almost as old as the almond tree there.

Lavender Hideaway is a sweet cottage set in beautiful grounds, on the top of a mountain, in a tiny village in Ithaca. If the description makes it sound magical, it is because it is. Perfect silence, sheep bells tingling, lavender and rosemary scents, a sparkling pool, and elegant, vintage interiors make it a perfect escape for solitary or family holidays. The rest of the small island of Ithaca with her lovely beaches and walking trails is at an arm's length, to complete an unforgettable holiday.


Nestled among vineyards, aromatic herbs and olive trees, in a tiny mountain village of Ithaca, Lavender Hideaway is perfectly quiet and secluded. The surrounding gardens seem to stretch as far as the eye can see, and the only thing that breaks the silence are the bells of goats in the distance.

The villa consists of a three-bedroom house and an adjacent guesthouse. Continuous and loving restoration preserves traditional elements, combining them with modern amenities. The main house has the air of a 1920s bourgeois house. It consists of three bedrooms (one double, one twin and one single), a living room, dining room, open plan kitchen, and bathroom. The guesthouse, recently recreated on the ruins of what used to be the neighboring house, has a bedroom, a living room, and a bathroom. Two built-in sofa beds can comfortable sleep another two people, ideally children.

The village is very small, dotted with the ruined houses of those who left in the 1950s in search of a better future. There are no shops, and the only kafeneio (traditional coffee shops that are to be found across Greece) keeps erratic business hours. There are beautiful walks to be enjoyed around the village, and lovely churches to be visited. Children will enjoy the rare freedom that only nature and lack of danger can afford.

Neighbouring villages and beautiful beaches with crystal green blue waters and white pebbles are at a twenty minute drive. The capital, Vathy, is at a half hour drive.

This is a rare and truly magical place. There is no television, and no internet access. Even mobile phone reception can sometimes be erratic. At dusk the sheep pass by on their way home, and at night the only sounds are those of the night crickets and the owls. It is ideal for those in search of beautiful landscapes, and the simplicity and elegance of rural life.

Dostupno gostima

Most of the house and grounds are accessible - the main house is large enough to accommodate most of our guests. For larger parties, there is a guesthouse available, with a separate entrance.

Interakcija s gostima

We offer cleaning services twice per week, but can arrange additional visits upon request. We can also arrange for meals to be cooked for you, if you wish. Activities, such as hiking with a guide, yoga, and boat hire can also be organised. Please let us know in advance.

Ostale napomene

Please note again: there is NO have to go to the neighbouring village. Even mobile internet does not work well. On the bright side - digital detox retreats are all the rage, we offer ours at a fraction of the price :-)

Kućni red

This is an old house, to be treated gently. Most of the items are antique, or family heirlooms, and we believe that their presence are an intrinsic part of the experience. We hope that you will respect this, and take care accordingly.
Water is extremely precious, we mostly use rain water gathered in the stone wells. Please try to use it with consideration, and take care not to waste it by leaving the tap on unnecessarily.

Lavender Hideaway is a beautiful house in a magical, tranquil setting. The village location is high up in the mountain in the centre of the island, along dramatically winding roads. The house is a family home with lovely antique furniture and decor. No air con but the rooms have fans. There's a fantastic outside terrace, perfect for reading or lolling. The pool is not huge but good enough for cooling down and kids to spend hours in, guarded by exotic butterflies. We had pea hens patrolling the gardens and spent evenings in the one amazing taverna in the village. A completely charming retreat for those looking for perfumed down time.

We chose lavender hideaway for our honeymoon. We wanted peace, quiet and comfort. We got that and more. It is remote and up in the mountains but I can't begin to say how perfect our holiday was. I dont really want to tell anybody about this place because everyone will want to go. We would move there tomorrow. The house is so welcoming and the lovely touches, like teas, different teas, coffee bread and jam, made the experience even more joyful. The hosts were so helpful from our first enquiries and Sophia who looks after the house was lovely. The house is equipped with everything you cold possibly need. It has a warm family feel, we couldn't have asked for more! The only problem we had was leaving!! The nearest town is about a 15 minute drive away, which has a couple of small supermarkets, bars and restaurants and the beach five minutes from there. We will be back as soon as we can!!

We had the most wonderful week at Lavender Hideaway. The house is comfortable and beautifully furnished with a mix of furniture old and new, lots of paintings and photographs and comfortable beds (lovely linen!). It feels like a much loved real Greek family home. The outside covered terrace space is huge and filled with sofas and chairs and cushions galore for lounging in the heat. The garden is beautifully and stylishly planted with olive trees, lavender, salvia and roses and the pool is great. Sophia, who met us after our delayed arrival, was very helpful and lovely and cleaned the house and changed our linen half way through the week which was a nice surprise. We would love to come back here and I will certainly recommend the house to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat - a lovely place to go back to after a day on the beach. Anogi is wonderful to wander around and we also loved the nearby town of Stavros where we ate out and shopped.

We absolutely loved our stay at this wonderful house, we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. We were met by Sophia who showed us around the property that had everything we needed for our stay with 2 small children. The house itself was charming and wonderfully looked after and the outside space was perfect for all times of the day (especially when the children went to bed and you could sit outside with a glass of wine, watch the stars and listen to the goat bells).

We had a great time in a truly unique place! One of those places you (selfishly) don't want to advertise too much... Our host was responsive and always willing to provide support, guidance and advice. Daphne knows we'll come back
