The length from north to south is approximately 25 kilometers and from west to east 17 kilometers. Kythira, which is only twenty kilometers from the coast of Peloponnese, was known in the Middle Ages as “Cerigo” or “Tsirigo”. It is a beautiful island that, given the nature and construction of the houses, looks more like a Cycladic island than an Ionian island.

You will not find mass tourism here, the island does not have the capacity to accommodate thousands of tourists. On the island there are beautiful traditional villages, nice secluded bays with beautiful beaches, historic castles and bridges and a beautiful nature with beautiful gorges, forests and caves.
