A wonderful little hotel in the heart of town. The renovation of the old olive oil mill into a small boutique hotel is very successful and tastefully done. Breakfast in the morning in the small tree shaded courtyard is peaceful. Every day a different and varied home cooked breakfast buffet prepared by the sisters that own and run the hotel....

Without exaggerations Hotel Familia is one of the best hotel in Greece. Stylish, absolutely comfortable, romantic and with some history background. Let me say from the beginning – there are no weaknesses or negative details. Seriously, it’s just ideal place. Even about price I can say that its quite reasonable taking into consideration quality and uniqueness. Hotel Familia is situated...

We 'found' this hotel in 2013 and decade to return this summer for a short stay. What a lovely experience. * Chistina and her team are fantastic. They take real good care of their guests and create a remarkable, wonderfull breakfast with lots of home cooking/baking (the best we had on our whole trip!) * the hotel is designed really...

This charming hotel has the most amazing design, beautiful bedrooms and the hosts, Michael, Christina and Nikki are welcoming and very generous. The home made breakfasts, served outside in the cool courtyard are a real treat. The hotel is right in the middle of town but very quiet and beautifully cool. Jan and Paul Stone

We spent only 3 nights here (Wish we stayed longer, but had no time) but we were really amazed at the quality of everything. The hotel has been beautifully restored, the breakfast was of excellent quality (I spend around 3 nights a week in hotels, trust me I know a great breakfast), the staff were lovely. Nothing was a problem....

My wife and I were traveling east to west across Greece on a trip I called the Odyssey so as you can imagine arriving in Ithaca at journey's end was a meaningful event. I had decided to stay at the Hotel Familia prior to our departure, based mostly on reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel deserves its high Trip Advisor...

This is a boutique hotel that has pretty much thought of everything for you to be comfortable. The food and service and the best- welcoming and generous. The location is excellent, central, but quiet. Then again, Vathy, on the whole, is rather quiet. I envy you your stay there. You will be delighted I'm sure!

We stayed at Hotel Familia as part of our honeymoon tour around Kefalonia and Ithaca. The hotel is absolutely beautifully decorated and has a very modern and homely feel. We had the large 'Artemis' room, which was well equipped with a great shower, huge and comfortable bed and plenty of storage for luggage. Christina and Makis were very welcoming and...
