Emma was a charming host, nothing was too much trouble and she went to a lot of trouble including collecting and returning us to the airport and sorting out excursions and restaurants. The Sea Folly was delightful.

Local Information

Try your hand at water sports, ringo and banana rides as well as waterskiing.

Take a ride in the 225 hp boat (Extra on top)to explore the coastline and anchor at one of the hidden pine fringed coves to picnic, snorkel and swim.

There are divine local fish and vegetable markets where all the ingredients are bought by the resident chef. Be inspired by the chef who will carry out dynamic cooking demonstrations.

Visit the winery on Kefalonia on board the fabulous 50 foot wooden traditional Greek boat “Odyssey”. This boat can also be chartered for fishing trips or a cruise to Shipwreck Bay (voted one of the top beaches in the world by Conde Nast Traveller).

Zakynthos is one of the most beautiful of Greek islands. Homer wrote about it in the Iliad and the Odyssey and Ulysses lived here. The Arcadians came and flourished, reaping from its rich fertile soil, as did the Venetians who called it “The Flower of the Levant”. Some of their monasteries still survive in the nearby mountains. The seas around the villas are clean and crystal clear.

The island produces wonderful olive oil, fruit, vegetables, poultry and meat. There are several friendly tavernas (plate-smashing included!), two party nights a week at the Sailing Club and a funky cocktail bar in the nearby port with music until dawn. Something for everyone.

Our View

On arrival at this glorious hideaway in the north of the beautiful island of Zante we honestly couldn’t take in the enormity of the view, the clarity of the light and the heat in the air. Quite staggering and memorably special.

Utterly, utterly stunning. This villa is built to the very highest of standards. It combines the raw beauty of Greece and the luxury of a five star private residence.

The house sits in a secluded 5-acre estate, gracefully situated on the Ionian sea. The owners have thought of everything to make this amazing property quite unbeatable. Between them they have 25 years experience of professional hospitality and restaurant experience and it shows!
This is easy summer living, exceptional Mediterranean inspired food, fine wines and heavenly beauty treatments. If you don’t want to you won’t have to lift a finger and total privacy means full relaxation.
With seven double en suite bedrooms this is the ideal destination for families and friends or for small private groups.

Lie by the pool, swim in the sea or enjoy the relaxation of massage and beauty therapy. The owners offer the exclusive use of two boats, water skis (including mono skiing), wake boarding as well as banana and doughnut inflatables.

Please note that whilst children are warmly welcomed the very young will need supervision due to the high spec interiors.
