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.

Travel to the Ionian Islands, Greece

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.

It is beautifully decorated in country style. Very clean, and the owners were so helpful trying to make our stay comfortable. Local taverns - Panos and Black cat - had great food, we really enjoyed it. Spartia beach is fantastic and is only few steps from the cottage. We intend to return to Kefalonia and we will definitely choose to stay in this cute cottage again!

Your cottage is very comfortable, clean and very well equipped. The pool was just delightful. We loved the central location of your house to explore all of beautiful Paxos. Thank you again for arranging all the extras like ferry ticket, car hire etc- it was very much appreciated. We hope to see you again in the future. Silke
