Kythira is a small Greek island, to the south-east of Athens. The island is perfectly located between the mainland and Crete, making it the perfect tactical spot in ancient times. Whilst you’re on the island, spend plenty of time on its range of beaches, as well as exploring some of its historical buildings, including the Venetian Castle and the Monastery of Myrtidiotissa. Spend some time in the village of Milopotamos with its white-walled houses and its history. Check out ten of the best Airbnb vacation rentals on Kythira.

The hosts are locals, and can give you advice on the local area, and help you organise tours and excursions if you’d like! The hosts don’t provide breakfast but can provide teas and coffees for you.
