Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Kythnos also enquired about Kefalonia holiday villas, Sicily holiday villas and villas in Corfu

Relax on a holiday in Kythnos.

With over 70 beaches, Kythnos is a fantastic holiday destination. Important historical and cultural markers make for an interesting and entertaining trip. Home to under 2,000 people, the island has become a fairly popular tourist destination in the last few years. The beach at Kolona is an absolute must-see location.

HomeAway provides villas on Kythnos for all group sizes, big and small, making it that much easier to enjoy everything the island has to offer. HomeAway has Kythnos self catering available for larger groups, perhaps several families meeting for a holiday, including Kythnos apartments that can sleep 10+ each and come with a wide variety of amenities that help make that home from home feeling. More compact rentals are available for smaller groups, including young families – those with children can rent family-sized houses with pools that provide the necessary space, to ensure that everyone can relax and have fun. For those searching for a slightly livelier island, Mykonos holiday homes are also available, while villas on Santorini will prove the perfect getaway spot for those needing quiet and seclusion.

Things to do

Merichas:

The small village of Merichas lies on the west coast of Kythnos. Ferries from nearby islands, such as Piraeus, dock in Merichas. Explore the nearby site of Vryokatsro, the ancient capital of the island. These 7th-century ruins include temples, altars, and buildings. The church of Panagia Flambourini is also a must-see.

Katafiki Cave:

Believed to be one of the largest caves in Greece, Katafiki cave is very close to Driopida, the previous capital of the island. The cave, first discovered in the late 1800s, was used as an iron mine until 1939. It was also used for shelter during World War II.

Driopida:

The former capital of Driopida is lined with white-washed houses with tiled, slanting roofs. Endless windy streets prohibit cars in certain parts of the town. The town is best known for the cave of Katafiki. This former iron mine has now been restructured into a tourist destination.

Kolona:

Kolona beach has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. This strip of land is covered in fine, golden sand and surrounded by sea. Kolona is best reached by car or taxi boat. Hiking is unadvisable in windy weather. A tavern opens during the day time to accommodate hungry travellers at the bar.

Byzantine Museum of Kythnos:

The church of Agios Georgios houses the Byzantine and Ecclesiastical Museum of Kythnos. The museum houses 150 Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons, including Orthodox crosses, vestments, and manuscripts. Some of these pieces date back to the 18th century, having been created by the monks at Mount Athos.

Santorini:

Visit the island of Santorini on a Kythnos holiday; it is what remains of a volcanic eruption that created a lagoon with very steep cliffs on all sides. The capital of Fira runs along the highest rise of these cliffs. Exploring Santorini's wine culture is a must, as wineries on the island make the strong Vinsanto.

Weather on Kythnos

The weather on Kythnos is Mediterranean in nature. Summers reach near 35°C, but with a notable lack of humidity. Winters bring more precipitation and an average temperature of 9°C in January. The Etesian Winds effect the Cyclades and Ionian islands from May through October. Mostly active in the late afternoon, these winds can create dangerous conditions for sailors and those on the western coasts of various islands.

Travel to Kythnos

Travelling to Kythnos is straightforward. Fly into either Athens Airport (ATH) or Syros Island National Airport (JSY). From either location, transfer to any number of ferry lines. Car-carrying and passenger ferries alike run daily in the low season and more frequently in the summer months. Ferries arrive in the port town of Merichas, and the Merichas-Kithnou Road runs between Merichas and Kithnou, through the town of Episkopi.

Quiet, peaceful, close to secluded beaches, very helpful owner!

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay. We didn't meet Andreas, but we met his mother, Maria, who was just WONDERFUL! She was so welcoming, with homemade treats for us on arrival and always available should we have any questions or need any help. (We had her phone number so we could just text with any questions.) The house is fully equipped with everything from towels to a washing machine to a fully equipped kitchen - we cooked several meals and had everything we needed. There are no shops nearby so I would recommend picking up everything you need in the port on arrival (walk in to the town and you will find several small supermarkets). Also recommend filling your car with petrol here as there aren't many petrol stations on the island. The final part of the journey to the house is on uneven roads (I'm not sure I would even call them roads, actually!) and our little hire car wasn't really up to the job (it was quite scary and we ended up not going out in the dark because of it) so I would highly recommend hiring a 4x4 or something a bit more suitable than a basic small car! The three beaches that are very close to the house are lovely - the sea was so calm that it was practically like going in a pool. Our favourite one was the one you can't quite see from the house - a 3min drive then a walk down to the beach. All of these beaches involve quite a steep walk though, so pack some sturdy shoes! We had the beach to ourselves each time we went. We would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway. It's a lovely house, in a quiet location with a super helpful owner.
