Only superlatives to describe it: beautifully restored, gorgeous property, great location, extremely well kept, ultra clean, quite modern decor, delicious home-made breakfast, and overall a me,or able stay. Mrs. Christina (e ever-caring owner), her (thoughtful) sister and Mr. Makis (the sophisticated super-helpful manager) all treated us (as well as the other guests) like family. A wonderful stay, definitely coming back...

We have return for the 3rd time at Hotel Familia in Vathi on the Magical Island of Ithaca. This time for celebrating the passage into the new year. Most people do not think of going to a Greek Island in the middle of winter. If you like to relax you may want to go to the small Island of Ithaca...

A few of us arrived during the storms on a yacht, 3 decided to find some overnight accommodation, what luck we had in finding this gem of a place. On leaving, we said if we returned with partners, this would be the place to stay !!! Pity we have the yacht to sleep on the rest of the week......

We had brunch at hotel familia this summer, and it was the best brunch we had in Ithaca by far! Homemade pies and poached eggs with bacon were lovely. The chef improvises daily on the brunch menue depending on the freshest ingredients they have on the day. Definitely give it a try if you visit the island.

Hotel Familia is exactly what it's name suggests: a small and cosy hotel with a family touch. It is an old olive oil production unit restored and converted into a hotel. The decoration and the materials used are very fine. The greatest asset of this hotel is that it is small so the very friendly staff and management can tend...

From day one, we were made to feel at home in this wonderful little hotel. The family who runs it, assisted by their staff, spare no effort to make your holiday really special. Our room was impeccable, with all modern comfort in a historical setting. Every morning we would wake up to the aromas of freshly baked brioche, focaccia, sweet...
