Make a holiday rental, home or villa in the Ionian Islands your home away from home

Ionian Islands, Greece

The Ionian Islands are a group of seven main islands off the west coast of Greece, from the Albanian coast to the southern tip of the Peloponnesus. These are lush islands brimming with Venetian flavour and great self catering holiday accommodation. The islands are renowned for the stunning beaches and charming villages, which have made these islands the second most popular of all the Greek islands.

Places to holiday in the Ionian Islands, Greece

Corfu (Korfu), boasts an unrivalled mix of spectacular beaches and archaeological treasures. The island is the second largest of the Ionian Islands, and is a cosmopolitan tourist centre, so can provide all the facilities, bars, restaurants and sports required by an international tourist. However, it does this with a back drop of beautiful scenery and top-class beaches. There is a wealth of sites to enjoy, from the serene resorts of the north to the 18-30 party town of Kavos.

Kefallonia (Cephalonia) is an island of wild beauty, and great for magestic holidays in the Ionian Islands. Breathtaking mountains reach down to the majestic beaches of the coast. Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands, and like many of the Ionian Islands, it has a huge wealth of historical sites to be discovered. The village of Fiscardo is defiantly worth a visit on an Ionian Island holiday as it was the only village to survive the 1953 earthquake in tact.

Zakynthos (Zante) is a tourist’s dream, with long sandy beaches, hidden coves in shear white cliffs, turquoise seas and iconic architecture. Zante also houses the Byzantine Museum.

Lefkada (Lefkas) was only separated from the mainland when the Corinthians cut a canal through sandbanks in 600BC. The island missed the package tourist boom, so remains wild and beautiful, with beaches no less impressive than those of the more popular islands remaining blissfully empty for much of the year.

Paxi (Paxos) is a tiny island, perfect for a relaxing, quiet holiday. The snorkelling is spectacular, and there are day trips to other islands, especially Corfu, but a holiday rental here means you can return to the peace of Paxi each day.

Things to do in the Ionian Islands

There is an enormous variety of activities to participate in the Ionian Islands. Each island offers different specialities to self catering holiday makers, including many historical sites, water sports and nature, but all offer remarkable beaches.

Sailing around the Ionian Islands is hugely popular, and getting a sailing holiday based from an Ionian rental villa means you can really discover the best parts of the islands at your own pace, including the secluded deserted beaches hidden at the base of white cliffs.

Weather in the Ionian Islands, Greece

The Ionian Islands have a steady maritime climate, with summer temperatures of between 28°C and 34°C, with cooling afternoon breezes.

Flights to the Ionian Islands typically take around 3 hours from the UK. There are airports on Corfu (CFU), Kefalonia (EFL) and Zante (ZTH), and regular flights to each go from 14 UK airports from a number of providers.

                                                              There is a lot of advantages to this place. First of all it`s the location of an island, you can get there by car. The position of Sivota is also very comfortable. Many beaches at your disposal. In the village nearby - a great choise of restaurants. The sea in this region is just incredible, shimmering from turquoise to blue. As for villa it self.. the view was breathtaking! Enjoying sunrise with a cup of your morning coffe on the terrace was just priceless. The property is wery well-maintained, furnished and decorated with taste. Spacious and luminous. Privat pool is also a definite advantage! We`ve stayed two times alredy and we definitely will come back again.

                                                              Wonderful host - nothing a problem and a very comfortable house. The location could not be better, a few yards behind the palace and within spitting distance of the main streets of the old town. There is a tiny beach with a couple of bars just around the corner and managed to park for free just outside all week. The house is located up a traditional back street and considering it's convenience was incredibly peaceful - just the church bells and the sound of locals returning home were all we could hear. Would love to book this again next time in Corfu. 100% recommended. Thanks

                                                              Fabulous villa for the discerning traveller

                                                              We had a fantastic holiday in this villa. From the moment we made first contact the customer service was second to none (particular thanks to James, Adam and John) and the villa did not disappoint. The views from the pool and terraced areas are probably the best on the island, with clear views across the water, over Meganisi, and to mainland Greece beyond. Internally the villa is spacious and comfortable, with everything we needed and more besides – the cold water and ice on tap were definitely a most welcome touch. The villa is completely private, so perfect for a get-away-from-it-all break, and there’s a supermarket not too far away for all catering supplies. Nydri, Syvota, and Vassiliki are within easy driving distance and driving distance to the airport is around one hour. The track up to the villa is rough but we managed this in a very small car and even on mopeds, so don’t be put off, just take it slow and steady. We highly recommend this villa and are determined to return.
