Kythira is an unspoilt island lying off the southernmost tip of the Peloponnese. It is popular with walkers, bird watchers and those interested in wild flowers, as well as with artists and writers who come to obtain inspiration from its natural beauty and with those who just want to enjoy its blissful peace and quiet.
Demand for property on the island has remained strong as buyers from many European countries escape to what is an idyllic lifestyle.
There is a mini market and other shops at Agia Pelaga which is 1 km from the house and at Potamos a new hospital has been completed and and became fully operational in 2015.
The island is well served by transport facilities. There is a daily ferry service to the mainland at Neapoli, as well as weekly or bi weekly sailings to Kalamata, Piraeus & Crete
Kythira has its own airport with daily flights to Athens and twice weekly flights to Crete, Kefalonia and Corfu, which enable people to take advantage of cheap flights from the UK and many other parts of Europe, instead of flying into Athens.
