“Keep Ithaca always in your mind. Arriving there is what you are destined for.” — C. P. Cavafy, Ithaca
Commanding sweeping views over the aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea, Ulysses’ Throne is an outstanding private estate in Ithaca, island of legends and myths. Famous as the home of Odysseus, or Ulysses as he is also referred to, Ithaca symbolises the return to a haven, to discovery and fulfilment. With 870 hectares of pristine land on the southwestern tip of the island, the estate aptly named Ulysses’ Throne is a prime location for building your dream home.
The seafront plot boasts 6 km of magical scenery, while the main plateau enjoys scenic panoramas to Kefalonia island and those stunning Greek sunsets. The aerial views overlooking the estate reveal a small bay surrounded by verdant, gently sloping hills that roll into the azure sea in classic poetic fashion. The spectacular coastline has a unique appeal that lovers of land and sea will certainly appreciate, while the local village of Vathi is also Ithaca’s picturesque capital.
Just 2 km northeast of the vibrant Ionian Island of Kefalonia, Ithaca is a peaceful destination that has remained largely untouched by mass tourism and has managed to retain that special island charm, which Ulysses is known to have pined for in the great saga by Homer, “The Odyssey”. 27 kilometres of mountainous terrain make the island the ideal destination for hiking and mountain biking, while scuba diving and sea kayaking are also available, not to mention the spectacular beaches of fine sand and glistening pebbles.
