On the island the light is very special and the sea is always present. I stay in Vathi which is a sleepy cluster of houses on the beach to the south of the island. There are 6 tavernas serving traditional Greek food and a charming little Greek Orthodox church, all on the beach. There are only one or two rows of houses and the hills host goats, donkeys and bees. An island bus links Vathi to the small towns of Apollonia and Artemonas, named after the gods, a high Venetian fortress, Kastro, and the lively port, Kamares. One summer, after a morning swim when I was the only person in the sea, I sat enjoying a glass of wine and thinking “et in Arcadia sum”. Arcadia should be shared with the deserving few, so the idea of my Greek island Idyll was born.
