With the air of a private villa, Perantzada Hotel is a haven of laid-back luxury. Located over the town of Vathi, the ancient neoclassical mansion has been transformed into a peaceful boutique retreat where the elegantly old blends are in harmony with the strikingly new. All great names of contemporary design, like Varner Panton, Tom Dixon, Ingo Mauer and Philip Stark are hosted here. Feel the Ionian breeze, rest on the Belle Époque armchairs or walk on the 19th century Persian carpets.
The stone-lined, glass-edged pool of Perantzada Hotel is surrounded by inviting loungers and looks out over the harbour. The hotel does not count with a restaurant, but breakfast comes with home-baked pastries, fresh juices and platters of local cheese served in the beautifully designed lounge. The poolside bar serves drinks, snacks and light meals during the day.
The island of Ithaki is among the most picturesque islands in Greece. Vathy, the capital, is amphitheatrically built around the sheltered bay and has lovely neoclassical buildings. Perantzada Hotel is among those. You may reach Ithaca through Cephalonia airport and take a ferry from Sami port.
