NEW FOR 2024

 

The rugged interior of north east Zakynthos is magnificently unspoilt, so we are extra pleased to have found this wonderful, secluded villa near Volimes. It’s a charming and peaceful location, surrounded by olive trees and landscaped gardens, yet just a seven-minute drive from the coast. Approaching along the private drive you get a sense of slipping back in time, and with good reason; the villa’s guest cottage originally belonged to the owner’s grandparents and the olive grove around the main house dates back even further. Solid stone walls, beamed ceilings and arched picture windows all speak to a respect for architectural tradition, polished up to welcome 21st C guests looking for both authenticity and comfort.

In addition to the main, two-bedroom house, there’s a detached guest cottage with its own bedroom, shower room and living area, making this a really practical layout for two couples or a multi-generation party looking for a little extra privacy. The outside space is equally well designed, with lots of natural shade from the trees, plenty of seating and dining space and outdoor lighting which makes the garden even more magical at night. You can barbecue right here, enjoying the sounds of nature and the luxury of seclusion, or for a change of scene you’ll find beaches, boat hire and a choice of excellent local tavernas all within a 10 to 15-minute drive.

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide.

We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Edgar Allen Poe described Zakynthos as 'the flower of the Levante' and today, nearly 200 years later, this multi-faceted destination remains among the least developed of the larger Greek islands. The north in particular retains a timeless feel, thanks in part to its more rugged landscape that makes travel a little slower but infinitely more rewarding. There’s beauty and drama in towering cliffs and forest-clad mountains, but also hours of family fun on golden sandy beaches. From sleepy Agios Nikolaos in the north to the vibrant capital Zakynthos Town, you’ll find luxury villas and romantic honeymoon suites in some of the island’s most idyllic locations.
