The space

At AFALES VILLA accommodation, one will find all the necessities for going on friendly and romantic holiday with mystical and ancient atmosphere as over our houses are the ruins of the legendary palace of Odysseus (only 70 meters away from us)with the ability to reach only 10 minutes away by some magnificent viable paths!!! But all this would be worth little if it wasn’t for our hospitality, friendliness and warm smile. You see, at AFALES VILLA in Ithaca, you are not the customer and we are not the business. Instead, you are the guests and we are your hosts. When you leave, you will realise that on this small island in Greece, you have made friends.

I would not recommend this listing to others. The unit was unbearably cold. I sent Virginia a message on Airbnb telling her the problem and asking if she could help. I also called her phone number. The message nor the phone call went unreturned the 2 nights I was there. To be able to get through the first night, after turning the unit heater on high, I slept with my clothes on (3 layers of shirts) and and a mid-layer skiing jacket. In the morning it took almost 5 minutes to get shampoo out of my bottle in the shower as the shampoo appeared partially frozen. I was fortunate the second day because I had befriended a local a few days before who was distraught when he heard my circumstance and brought me a portable heater from his own house. The portable heater made the second night more bearable and I didn't need the jacket but kept the three layers of shirts on. I felt let down by Virginia on this stay. I'll be the first to say, I don't think people should expect a Ritz Carlton experience with most Airbnb bookings, but a certain level of care for the well-being of guests' health should be required.

We had a little difficulty finding it, but when we did, Virginia's sister Julia showed us our apt. The studio apt was very pretty, as per pictures, with French Windows opening on to a terrace & sea view. Ithica is a jewel of an island, and the location of these apts is excellent, a 5 min walk to one of the islands best restaurants (book as its v popular), a 5 min drive to the enchanting port of Frikes, or the village of Stavros. My daughter & I never felt unsafe on the island, everyone is v friendly & gentle. Do book a small boat to explore the coves. Stunning. I would definitely stay at Virginia's again, it's really good value & while we didn't see her much, we knew her family were next door if we needed anything... I popped over once for a corkscrew, and she was very pleasant.

Great communication with Virginia, very nice location in the part of the island with the nicest villages, nice studio that has everything you need! Our neighbouring studios were not booked so it was very calm and quiet and we could sit close to the balcony to enjoy the nice view.

Virginia and her family were very welcoming on our arrival. We found it a little hard to find so I would recommend keeping Virginias number with you just incase. The apartment is in a lovely location overlooking Afales bay and within walking distance to two beautiful places: Stavros and Frikes which both have great eating options. The apartment is small but comfortable and clean. The kitchen equipment is very basic but is fine to make some small things. We were lucky that we had the courtyard to ourselves for the majority of our stay otherwise you need to share with other visitors. It is a real suntrap which we enjoyed. The only problem we had was with mosquitos at night (maybe the time of year) So I would recommend bringing some repellant or even a net. Virginias family live next door which is very handy if you need something but they also give you privacy which is a great balance. We also loved the company of the resident cats who were very friendly and entertaining! Overall a great stay. Thank you.

We enjoyed our stay at Virginias Studio to the max - it's walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches in Ithaca (Afales) and you see the bay from the balcony. The studio itself is quite basic, so don't expect to cook five-course-menus in there;) If you want to explore the island or shop for fruits and veggies or have dinner in one of the superb restaurants in Stavros (small village nearby), be sure to hire a car. It's a 40min. walk and even in September it's still superhot to walk around during the day. To get there is no problem: Local taxidrivers now the adress and you just check the doors to find the key, so it's really easy and Virginias mom very welcoming. And even though Virginia is not around, she'll get back to your messages immediately. Biggest plus of this place: There are cats around, during our stay even a babycat - free entertainement included;)

I live in Milan, but i come from the Greek Islands, where you can find the aprtments and explore this jewel island, with a wonderful sea and few steps from Odisseeus Palace. Sea, relax and history are waiting for you.
