“As you set out on your journey to Ithaca,
pray that your journey be a long one,
filled with adventure, filled with discovery”.
I have many friends that return to the island of Ithaca every year. The raw, untouched and slightly wild state is what attracts them Summer after Summer. While I am no expert, I have seen a slight shift in the way people are traveling. Quieter, more remote locations are being seeked out, with hopes of completely going off the grid and even disconnecting from the outside world. A return to simplicity; eating a salad from them garden you picked that morning or perhaps the catch of the day you bought from the fisherman down by sea. A place where time stands still and ebbs and flows with the rising and setting of the sun. All of this, wrapped up in a beautiful, little package of modern amenities. Villa Kalos, it looks like, is already on board. A villa, completely in ruins, abandoned by people and time, was beautifully restored and brought back to life. Situated on the remote island of Ithaca, Villa Kalos overlooks the Mediterranean countryside, of almond and citrus trees, of the salt-water pool and olive grove gardens. A slowness of time that, it seems, everyone is in search of lately.
