A Family Trip Ιn Kythira Island
Written by: Eleni Psaromialou
A lot of blue, white and yellow colours dominate the Kythirian landscape.
Our holiday was finally starting!
It made sure that both adults and children were well rested and ready for the rest of our journey.
It instantly felt like we were always meant to be there.
If you stop to admire the villages you will be awarded the sight of churches, bridges, squares, convents, castles, olives presses and windmills.
In addition to everything else, the island has an abundance of beaches to choose from depending on what you like and how far you are willing to drive. We visited many of them in order to get a full picture of what the island has to offer. What can I say, it was a hard task!

Next on, the bakery at Karavas, where we bought rusks, biscuits, nuts and honey. Breakfast as well as all other meals on the island far exceeded our expectations and were delicious, simple and respectful of the ingredients they contain. I would not be surprised to find out that Kythera is in a few years regarded as one of the major foodie destinations since all of the food we tasted was divine.
To take you back to the beginning, travelling as a family can become quite complicated. It requires to take the needs of everyone into consideration and that includes quite a bit of compromising. In Kythera, there was no wrong decision, no wrong hotel choice or restaurant. We were constantly in delight and we had a marvelous time. Our children will always remember our holidays as a place they felt safe and happy. The memories they created there will bring smiles for many years to come.
