— What was your inspiration to buy the villa and rent it out as a vacation rental?

Yann: “My wife is originally from Greece and together we were looking to buy a villa in her home country, preferably in the Ionian Islands. The tourists that visit the islands are very different from the rest of Greece; they are mostly families and people looking for quiet vacations.

Finally we found this place in Ithaca, which the previous owners had rented out to holiday guests. At first our intention wasn’t to rent out the house but we eventually decided to go the same route.”

— How would you describe the villa and its atmosphere?

Yann: “The villa used to be an old olive oil press that we restored according to the way it was built over a century ago. That is what makes me fond of the place.

We have 6,500 square metres of land with a huge garden and a swimming pool. We’d like to build a kitchen and lounge area next to the pool and grow olive trees here as well. We have a lot of ideas and there’s still a lot of opportunity for the place.”

— How would you describe the interior style at the villa?

Yann: “The outside of the villa was kept the same, but on the inside we wanted to bring everything up to modern standards. We put in concrete floors and furnished it with mostly simple but modern furniture mixed with some older pieces as well.”

— Tell us more about the villa’s rooms and facilities.

Yann: “The building is shaped in an L form, with one part as the main facility that has a kitchen and a living room. The living room is not very big and we deliberately chose not to include a TV in the house as most of the time is spent outdoors. But we do have WiFi if guests need it.

The other part of the villa is where the bedrooms are on two separate floors. Two bedrooms are on the upper level with one master bedroom, and on the ground floor there are two other rooms. The villa can accommodate up to 8 people.

There’s a large outdoor space with a swimming pool, terrace, barbecue, and a garden. The house sits only one kilometre from the Ionian sea and has views of the beautiful mountains surrounding the villa.

We have a manager who is available for check-ins and check-outs and also does the housecleaning once a week on Wednesday. She can arrange and organise activities and offer recommendations.”
