We could only secure this villa for the first week of our two week holiday, and it was an order of magnitude better than our second villa in every respect.
We received such a warm welcome from our lovely hosts; genuinely lovely people for whom nothing was too much trouble. We really appreciated the time they took to advise us on attractions, beaches and restaurants, and we enjoyed the gifts of fruits and vegetables from their organic garden. The best corn on the cob ever!
The villa was wonderful. We particularly loved the outdoor space with beautiful pool, fabulous BBQ and eating area, tennis court and table tennis – all set within a beautiful vineyard. Inside, we enjoyed the comfortable beds, the very well-equipped kitchen, the air conditioning and a much appreciated water cooler. This is the sort of villa that you’ll want to spend all day at – unlike our second villa, where we couldn’t wait to head out to the beach each day. The hosts have a second villa directly behind this one which share the same driveway, but no other amenities are shared (e.g. each villa has its own pool) and we were barely aware that anyone was nearby.
The villa is centrally located, within about 15 minutes of the airport, Tsivili and Zakynthos town. You’ll need a car.
We spent our time at the villa either outdoors or sleeping. We didn’t use the sitting room, but it did occur to us that families with kids or teens wanting a big screen TV might be disappointed. But they should be in the pool anyway!
Finally, a very big thank you to our lovely hosts. We wish you every success and we hope to visit again soon.
