The Ionian
The Ionian islands are the western most part of Greece. They are traditionally called Eptanisa, the Seven Islands, but there are also many smaller islands in the group. Settled by the Greeks as early as 1200BC, the Ionian has been ruled by the Macedon, Byzantine and Russo-ottoman Empires as well as coming under the rule of the Venetians, French and British before becoming part of Greece in 1830.
Corfu (Kerkyra) described by Homer as the Emerald Isle, or the Garden of Eden. A beautiful island of lush green hills, towering mountains, clear blue seas, pure white sands, endless olive groves and colourful wild flowers.
Ithaca is the second smallest of the inhabited Ionian Islands. Ithaca was possibly named after Ithacis, the son of a Kefalonian King. There have been archaeological finds that date back to 4000- 3000 BC on Ithaca. Ithaca is most famous for being Odysseus’s homeland. Ithaca boasts a local red wine known as Ithaca Black due to its deep colour.
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands as well as the greenest and lushest . There are many olive groves and vineyards and Kefalonia boasts some of the best wine in Greece. Most recently the island was made famous by the book and film Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Loius de Bernieres, but the villages of Kefalonia also captivated Lord Byron with their beauty.
Levkas (Lefkada ) means white, and refers to the white cliffs in the south of the island. Levkas is joined to the mainland by an opening road bridge across the Levkas Canal. The island was separated from the mainland when the islanders dug the Levkas Canal in 700BC. Just east of Nidri is the private Onassis island.
Paxos is the smallest of the 7 islands and famous for the crystal clear blue water. The island is covered in olive groves and the high quality olive oil is also used in the production of soap and shampoo.
