About Ionian Islands

The Ionian Islands represent a cooler, more verdant version of Greece, with cypress trees, olive groves and grassy hills. Each of the islands — of which Corfu is undoubtedly the most famous — has its own distinct character and culture, making island-hopping all the more appealing. You can expect dazzling beaches, too, with the white sands and turquoise waters which have made Greece’s islands so popular with sun-seekers and water sports enthusiasts. With so much to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to start. Whether you’re on holiday as a couple or with friends and family, our Gurus’ list of the best places to stay in the Ionian Islands is the perfect springboard for planning your trip.

Some of our Ionian Islands Collections:

Long-time favourite Corfu is a lush island brimming with heritage landmarks, beautiful landscapes and pristine beaches. Head inland to discover age-old villages connected by winding walking and cycling trails, or kick back at the blissful beaches of the coast. Corfu Town will delight history buffs. Just south of Corfu, lovely Paxos remains largely underrated and tranquil — a great choice for those looking to step off the beaten track.

Further south is lovely Kefalonia, made famous by Louis de Bernières’ 'Captain Corelli’s Mandolin'. A land of pretty villages, this is a brilliant destination for outdoorsy adventurers and beachgoers. Neighbouring Ithaca — the legendary home of Odysseus — is also a hiking and biking hub, most easily accessed by boat from Kefalonia. Continuing south, you’ll find the party hotspot of Zante, which actually has a quiet side with stunning beaches, and the calm islands of Lefkada and Kythira. Our guide to the best places to stay in the Ionian islands encourages you to explore top spots and lesser-known gems — there’s always more to discover in this superb region.

The Best Places to Stay in the Ionian Islands

FOR TRADITIONAL CHARM

  • Hotel Margarita on Kythira is a charming, traditional spot with exposed flagstone floors, stone arches and a gorgeous courtyard terrace. A converted 19th-century mansion, just off the narrow high street in historic Chora, this is a great base for exploring. The 12 rooms are simple and affordable.
  • Museum Hotel George Molfetas is a rare gem. A traditional six-bedroom hotel in the pretty village of Faraklata on Kefalonia, the property has been recognised by the Greek Ministry of Culture as a 'museum hotel' -- meaning that it is beautifully appointed with handmade antiques and original artwork. A favourite for history buffs as well as foodies, who will adore the authentic cookery classes.
  • Siorra Vittoria is a gorgeous neo-classical building right by Corfu Town's City Hall Square and the Ionian Parliament. Originally a mansion, the hotel still has high ceilings with wooden beams, parquet flooring and a pretty garden. A lovely old town B&B.

For Romance

  • Katouna Suites is a gorgeous, adults-only hideaway in Lefkada's north east. The ten suites are beautifully appointed, with a muted palette of pale grey and cream tones. Each suite has a private balcony or terrace, and guests share access to the infinity pool and hip pool bar. A couples' favourite.
  • Torri e merli offers elegant five-star style, with soothing spa treatments, gourmet Mediterranean cuisine and elegant interiors. Ideal for romantics or keen spa-goers, this is a gem of a boutique hotel in Paxos' interior.
  • F Zeen Retreat, a family-run five-star resort, has a brilliant reputation for romantic honeymoons. Unwind in one of 25 airy rooms, with high ceilings, private balconies and earthy colour palettes, after pampering spa treatments and pool dips. An adults-only boutique bolthole in the hills of Kefalonia.
  • Zante Maris Suites, just inland from Porto Zante, is another exclusive island hideaway for couples. Think swish, minimalist interiors and a real sense of barefoot luxury. The holistic spa is a standout, and the best suites boast private terraces and plunge pools. Honeymoon heaven.
  • Emelisse Nature Resort is an exceptional collection of suites and villas surrounded by verdant gardens in Kefalonia's Fiskardo. Think airy spaces with ocean views, indulgent contemporary interiors, four-poster beds and private terraces. The Mediterranean cuisine is superb, and the atmosphere wonderfully romantic. Barefoot bliss.

FOR FAMILIES OR GROUPS

  • Fundana Villas is a family-run rural escape in Corfu, with self-catering villas surrounded by big landscaped gardens with a pool. Four-poster beds are topped with floral quilts, and flagstone floors stay cool even during the summer months. The family apartment is perfect if you're travelling with one or two children in two and has a well-equipped kitchenette. A family favourite, with a wonderfully laid-back feel.
  • Cielo Luxury Villas on Zante will delight families and groups of friends. Split into two villas — one with three bedrooms and the other with four, the property can also be rented out in its entirely for larger group gatherings. Spacious, modern lounges have big sliding doors leading out to the swimming pool. Fabulous.
  • Avithos Resort prides itself on being one of the most family-friendly luxury properties on Kefalonia. Set amidst olives groves and cypress trees just 15 minutes from Argostoli, this resort offers a collection of stylish studios, maisonettes and apartments, perfect for guests of all ages. The swimming pool, Mediterranean fare and proximity to all the sights are part of the appeal.

FOR a Harbour-Side Hotel

  • Perantzada Hotel, in Ithaca's lively Vathi, is housed in an 1811-built neoclassical mansion. All-white rooms and suites are soothing and serene, providing the perfect backdrop to the hotel's art collection. A brilliant base for romantics dreaming of historic charm in the heart of the action on the bay.
  • Kefalonia Grand is a waterfront hotel in Argostoli, perfect for keen explorers. Interiors are decorated in soothing white and cream tones, there's a great restaurant and the best of the town is right on your doorstep. There are also sailing and water sports activities available from the harbour. Lovely.

FOR A RURAL ESCAPE

  • Zakspitaki is a charming, secluded B&B on Paxos with eclectic interiors featuring artefacts, artwork and textiles from East Africa, Asia and Europe. Brilliant for artsy types looking to unwind, this laid-back little property also has a plunge pool and sun-drenched terrace. Very romantic and low-key.
  • The Merchant's House on Corfu has just six guest rooms, each with wrought iron beds, Venetian-style furnishings and private balconies. Generous breakfasts are served on the terrace, and walking tours around the village of Old Perithia abound.
  • Levendis Estate is a fabulous organic farm in southern Ithaca. Pick this place for the sense of seclusion, the opportunity to re-connect with nature, and the family-friendly feel. Two-bedroom cottages are simple and welcoming, and big breakfasts of farm-fresh produce set you up for magical days.
  • My Little Place on the Hill is a small boutique hotel hidden in Kefalonia's interior. Think chic monochrome rooms with hillside views, plus a refreshing swimming pool and big breakfasts served on the terrace each morning. Family suites are self-catering, perfect for longer stays.
  • Villa de Loulia is a romantic, pink-painted manor house tucked in the countryside of northern Corfu. Elegant, traditional charm pervades throughout, with beamed wooden ceilings, prettily draped beds in pastel-painted bedrooms and classic tiled bathrooms. The gardens are strewn with boungainvillea, and the courtyard pool very refreshing. There's an excellent table d'hôte, too.

For Design-Led Luxury

  • Olea All Suite Hotel has won multiple awards for its innovative contemporary design. The most sensational suites have private pools with ocean views, big terraces and Mediterranean interiors with tiled floors and natural materials. Enjoy restorative spa treatments before feasting at one of three restaurants. Absolute luxury on Zante.
  • Ikos Dassia is a spectacular luxury resort with chic, white-on-white interiors and uninterrupted sea views from spacious rooms and suites. Built around the 'Infinite Lifestyle' concept, this resort seeks to reinvent the all-inclusive Mediterranean holiday.

  • Mon Repos Palace is a modern design hotel on Corfu's dazzling coast. You'll find elegant rooms and suites, with fine antiques and old mirrors, as well as crisp white linens on beds with clean & modern upholstered headboards. Cream and dove-grey tones create a real sense of grown-up calm. A lovely adults-only beach hotel.

FOR GREAT VALUE

  • Paxos Fairytales is a collection of studios, suites and apartments in Paxos' lively Gaios town. Overlooking the sea, spaces feel fresh and contemporary, with natural wood and light fabrics. Perfect for couples, friends and families eager to explore on foot, this is also an appealingly affordable spot.
  • Aliki Hotel is a simple yet comfortable 22-bedroom hotel with spacious interiors and ocean views on Lefkada. Very reasonably priced, the hotel has a swimming pool and a large sea-facing terrace for unwinding with friends and family. A laid-back holiday choice.

  • If you'd prefer a self-catering option, we suggest that you visit our online partner Booking.com.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

  • Fly to Corfu International Airport or to Kefalonia Airport from a number of UK and European cities. Lefkada Preveza/ Aktion Airport. Zakynthos Airport and Kythira Airport offer primarily domestic flights, so you'll find it easiest to travel to those islands via Athens International Airport. Alternatively, hop between islands by ferry, or arrive by cruise ship. Speak to your hotel in advance to arrange an airport or ferry pick up.
  • The Ionian Islands are wonderful to explore with the freedom of your own transport! Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car.
  • Expect warm summers, with temperatures hovering around 26-30°C between June and August, which is also peak season. For fewer crowds travel in May or late September, when you can find great hotel deals — but do be aware that October tends to be rainy.
