Levendis rests in a valley with its back to a mountain, and overlooking a wide bay. Small traditional seaside villages are within 3 km. Ithaca is a mountainous, wooded island which has escaped mass tourism. Ithaca combines its history, religious tradition, culture and its seafaring and agricultural way of life - unchanged for generations - with a geographic beauty that captures the most widely travelled visitor. With its many mountain pathways linking historical villages and shores dotted with small white jewelled beaches, it offers a destination which you will find difficult to leave and compelled to return to. The village of Stavros is 2 km from Levendi's and is the central village of northern Ithaca. About 1 kilometre north of Stavros is Pelicata; a small Bronze Age settlement. Kioni and Frikes on the northeast coast are both typical unspoilt Ionian villages with many small tavernas along their sea fronts.
