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.

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...

We had a nice stay in this lovely hotel. The team was very friendly. We had a problem with our car, the day before leaving for Lefkada island - Christina was absolutely fantastic the way she explained the rent-a-car company the situation and the urgent solution we needed - thanks again Christina! Superb breakfast, good location, nice place.
