Elea Apartments is located in the center of Vathi, capital of Ulysses’ mythical Ithaka. It is located in the upper part of the town, just a few steps from the main square and centre; but still secluded and away from the noise as the property is situated in a garden of almost 2 acres surrounded by olive trees (thus the name “Elea”= olive tree in ancient Greek) and flora that meets up with the typical Mediterranean landscape.
The restored townhouse consists of two studio apartments on the garden level and two 3-bedroom maisonettes on the first floor. All apartments have a magnificent view over the port of Vathi. Below the green olive trees is our pool where you can lie down, relax and enjoy moments of absolute tranquility under the Greek sun…
The three bedroom maisonettes have a double bedroom in the attic with en-suite bathroom and a small side balcony for morning coffee with views of the sea. On the main floor there are two twin bedrooms sharing a bathroom; they lead to the rear terrace overlooking the back garden and the swimming pool, shaded by a grape pergola. A fully fitted kitchen is provided, adjacent to the living/dining room leading to the the large front terrace with views over the Vathi bay.
The studios are one bedroom apartments on the ground floor, with a double bed, bathroom and fully fitted kitchen. A third person can be accomodated in the living room sofa. In the past the ground floor was used as a pantry and a cellar, as due to its wide stone walls it remains cool even in the summer. We have now restored the original stonework providing a modern and comfortable accomodation with rustic design features.
