leaving Kithira town

"We will never find Kythira",
say the lyrics of a greek song.

It's true, we never find the island, the island finds us!

Kythira is far from mainly touristic, it is unconventional.

The geography, climate and morphology of the island have created a rich palette of landscapes:

high mountains end abruptly to the sea, forming small bays
deep gorges tear the harsh stone and create shelters of wild vegetation with waterfalls and creeks.

wonderful seas pebbled, green-blue, deep or goldened by sand...

History, inevitably, envied this natural beauty;
castles, once grand, abandoned states of an era passed and impressive caves; along with the architectural style of Venetians and English conquerors,Kythira have formed a unique identity with influences also from the Ionian Islands, Crete and Peloponnese.

Kindness and hospitality of the inhabitants make one feel part of the island.

As you leave, you take a bit of Kithira with you and leave a part of you there!
