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.

The villa is just spectacular in all aspects from the design to the fittings, with the views especially the sunsets something that we will remember for a long time. 6 of us went (4 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 6). There is so much space, the kids loved the pool and the games room. The local taverna at the bottom of the hill was great, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and the food was fantastic. Everytime we went they brought out some fruit from their garden which was delicious and very much appreciated. It was very much authentic rather than set up for tourists which is so much better 😊򒠊 I must say that Lorainne (who manages the villa) was amazing, she really made everything very easy, from meeting us on the first day to get to the villa, to organising taxis with Alex (who was great), the meal (had by the In -laws whilst we were out) and just generally being available for anything we needed. We went over to Paleokastritsa to the Akron beach bar for a wedding which was stunning. If you have children Aqualand is a great day out. You need to hire a car (we had a min-van) as the villa is up the top of a hill, you can't have the views without getting up there :-)
