This Villa is based in the north part of Ithaki in a small village called Stavros, but also the central point of villages for the Northern Greeks of Ithaca. There is a pharmacy, supermarket, butchery and Fruit Shop together with restaurants and coffee shops.

The Stavro village is centred around the main square where the church of Sotiros is situated and the park with the Palace of Odysseus on display.

It also has a local beach 5min down to the bay from the square called Poly Bay where there is a fully equipped canteen and sunbeds as well as rental for small boats for day trips to kefalonia or other parts of Ithaki.


The island is specially known for its green mountains and mountainous terrain. The beaches are all pebbled and the island is unspoilt with few tourists.

"paradise found"

we returned to Ithaca after falling in love with the island on a sailing holiday in the Ionian. We wanted to learn more about this enchanting island and Kouravatha villas was our ideal answer. We wanted an authentic feeling town with amenities, local culture, views and beach nearby. Stavros delivers this and much more. A great lived-in town with one of the most happening beaches, the most sophisticated restaurant (Polyphemous) and wonderful cafes and grocery stores, as well as lovely locals and olive groves and goats here and there.

the cottage is a perfect gem of a place with understated charm and casual chic walking distance to the village. the pictures don't do this airy and spacious place and with nicely designed and well appointed rooms justice. the tranquil terrace with a view of olive groves, the mountains and the sea is a gorgeous backdrop for an evening drink or morning coffee.

Melanie is truly an incredible host, the level of service she provides would put most 5 star hotels to shame. From the moment of booking, she was incredible in making all transfer and transport arrangements, everything from ferries to taxis to restaurants to shopping to beaches to boating recommendations and booking, nothing was too much. I could not imagine better service anywhere. And the onsite spa - what a bonus, I had a facial and mani-pedi which were great and incredible value. And the small scale of the cottage, you really feel like you are part of the community.

We are already planning our next visit.

"Perfect solution for 2 families traveling together"

It was really a very good choice for our vaccation, we were two families with 2 children each family.
I was quite with a very nice commoin yiard
The houses were vey nice and in a great shape
The only reason not to rate the property as perfect is the disctance to beach

Besides this all the others were very nice, I would certainly choose the same property when I travel to Ithaki again

Melanie and Vassilios were very helpful and friendly

"Incredible and authentic Greek experience"

We had such a wonderful stay in the kouvarata stone houses. It was peaceful and very private. Close to the main square of Stavros which allowed for us to go food shopping and get to the beaches easily as well as experience the night life of restaurants etc. It was very clean and the house had everything we needed for a very pleasant stay! Definitely will return again! :)

"A Privilege to stay in this most beautiful place..."

From the moment we decided upon Ithaca and got in touch with Melanie we knew we were heading somewhere very special. Everything was explained to us in lovely emails and our journey from the UK to this… More
