daphnae cottage is situated in the lower mountain village of Exoghi on the mythologically rich Greek Ionian island of Ithaca, also known as Ithaki, and overlooks Afales and Frikes Bays toward Lefkada and Mainland Greece. The spectacular views will amaze the visitor to this unique holiday rental accommodation. daphnae cottage is ideal for walkers and nature lovers who don't mind a little walk down a gentle slope to the cottage. daphnae cottage is located 300 meters from the main road to Exoghi, down an ancient cobble path to the cottage, at which the view opens up before you and will have you treasure every detail of what this northern corner of Ithaki reveals.
Exoghi village was once a thriving community, united high above the sea for protection from the pirates. The village would send it's women, naked to lure the pirates away to where they would be captured by raw linen traps. Around the area of daphnae cottage, Spania, there is the early 1900 church of Taxiarchis which was built, but never finished, the cobble path leads down from the village of Exoghi, past daphnae cottage and further down to Platrithias and Kalamos, where prior to 1953, there was no road from the village to the rest of the northern island. The women of Exoghi would take their laundry and spend all day at the Kalamos Spring, washing, before once again, making their way up the ancient path which has been dated back to Homeric times through archaeological finds.
daphnae cottage is not suitable for those who have difficulty walking, but will delight the visitor who seeks a holiday location with a difference. Although the cottage is not far from the main road where there is parking, the cobble path is on a gentle slope down and up from the cottage. To stay at daphnae cottage you will also require transport and a torch to navigate the cobble path at night.
