Hotel Nostos is in the sleepy seaside village of Frikes, on Ithaca's east coast.
The hotel lies just 200 metres away from the waterfront - a 2 minute walk. There are some pretty beaches between Frikes and Kioni - the closest is a walk of 10 minutes.
Frikes has 5 waterfront tavernas and 2 general stores.
The owners, Nicki and Andreas, consider their guests as family and offer a personalised attention to detail. Their home cooking at the restaurant is traditional and excellent; the little touches like fresh fruit salad and selections of delicious pastries for breakfast help to bring guests back to the hotel each year.
With just 31 rooms (all refurbished in 2014) there is a peaceful and cosy sense of intimacy.
All rooms have air-con, WiFi, fridge, ceiling fan, satellite TV, hairdryer and safety deposit box. There is a choice of Sea or Mountain View Rooms.
Simply but comfortably furnished, Nostos will provide a very reasonably priced and welcoming base for those wanting to be in the heart of a small and friendly seaside village.
The prices quoted are per room for 7 nights and include breakfast - for a daily rate please divide by 7.
