Dear fellow citizens,

The crisis we are experiencing is not a business opportunity.

I would like to remind you that from 15.3.2020 to 30.4.2020 the main and non-main seasonal tourist accommodation is prohibited , except for the already operating tourist  accommodation whose temporary ban comes into force on 23.3.2020.

Those residents of our islands thinking of renting seasonal accommodation or Airbnb in Kefalonia and Ithaca to people who do not work in the prefectures of Kefalonia and Ithaca will not do so. They will face criminal penalties. Under the current circumstances, non-compliance is not just anti-social behavior but it endangers public health.

Our fellow landlords need to understand that for a temporary and insecure profit, we can lead to major structural damage over time.
