The Ioanian Islands have a temperate climate; seawaters as deep as they are refreshing, verdant mountains, a rich cultural heritage and a carefree spirit; the ideal combination for your holidays during which you will enjoy a well-developed tourism infrastructure, hotels, restaurants, water sports centres, cultural events and numerous sights, historic monuments, and museums.

Scattered along the mainland’s western coastline, the Ionian Islands are a cluster of 12 large and small islands covering an area of 2,200 square kilometers. There are six large ones : Zakynthos (Zante), Ithaki (Ithaca), Kerkyra (Corfu), Kefalonia (Cephallonia), Lefkada (Leucas), and Paxoi. The small ones are Antipaxoi, Erikoussa, Mathraki, Othonoi, Meganisi, Kalamos, Kastos and Strofades isle group South of Zante. Together with the island of Kythira and Antikythira (both at a distance from the rest, opposite southern Peloponnese and Lakonia’s coastline) they from Eptanesa (meaning Seven Islands).

Being part of the Greek mainland once, the Ionian Islands were torn away when part of the terrain sank due to the seismic activity along the Ionian Sea’s coastline fault; that accounts for the area’s rugged shores, beautiful beaches and imposing mountains that used to be part of the Pindos Mountain Range across the Greek mainland. It also accounts for the sea depth in the area, reaching 4,406 m. registered as the greatest in the Mediterranean.

Their mild, temperate climate makes them the ideal choice for vacation or permanent stay. In the wintertime, mainland’s mountains buffer the bitter northern winds blowing to the direction of the islands while the hot summer weather is tempered by the mild Northwestern meltemia winds and the sea breeze. The area’s air currents have turned many of the Ionian Islands beaches into worldwide known destinations for windsurfing.
