The London family who built a Greek island home

The Evening Standard

Cathy Hawker talks to the owners of Akrothea, Oscar and Sue Tymon about their love for the Ionian Island of Meganissi and why it's the perfect spot for sailing and exploring untouched coves and bays.

'Meganissi is wonderful for boating with safe waters and good wind,” says Oscar. “The sailing community know it as a place with untouched coves and
bays. We have a boat and love to explore Ithaca, Kefalonia or Lefkas where even in summer there’s always somewhere to moor for a waterfront lunch.”'

'Peaceful and private, Meganissi is unspoilt with a year-round population of 1,500. There’s a supermarket, a few boutiques, butchers and patisseries, several tavernas and hotels and one nightclub. “It is like the land that time forgot,” laughs Sue, an award-winning garden designer.'
