- Absolutely amazing villa, everything about it was just perfect. 10/10 couldn't fault it!
Published on: 18 August 2017
Attractive, spacious and idyllically located on the outskirts of the little resort of Keri, this lovely villa is perfect for a quiet, chilled-out holiday. There are magnificent sea views from the spacious first floor terraces and a delightful pool in which to cool off in the sunshine. Read More
Beautifully located on the hillside amid lush olive groves and vineyards, Villa Ambassador has been cleverly designed to make the most of its far-reaching views of the deep blue Ionian Sea and the striking island of Marathonissi.
Pretty gardens laid out in front of the property include a spacious raised lawn area and a lovely gazebo, cloaked in bougainvillea, offering welcome shade for a light lunch or cooling drink. A covered outdoor cooking terrace with a traditional bread oven and open barbecue provides a charmingly relaxed venue for preparing casual meals alfresco.
Matching stone staircases ascend to the property’s first floor where a fabulous covered balcony area with comfortable sofas and armchairs enables guests to revel in that magnificent sea view. Also located on the first floor is a glorious pool and sun terrace, generously furnished with tables, chairs and elegant loungers so you can soak up those rays and take a cooling dip whenever you wish.
The villa’s striking interior is a blend of contemporary European and Asian style, the rich, dark wood furnishings and sleek polished flooring contrasting beautifully with vibrant walls painted in deep crimson, zingy lemon and burnt orange. A vast, open-plan lounge and dining area has numerous sofas laden with soft, velvety cushions in exuberant fabrics and a cinema system for those relaxing evenings in. There’s even a bar, complete with chic bar stools, where you can pour an aperitif and chat over the day’s activities, or head out through the patio doors to catch the sun’s last rays from the poolside terrace.
For a change of cuisine from the outdoor barbecue, a fully-equipped kitchen with glossy, eye-catching cabinets and breakfast table enables guests to indulge their culinary skills, with a smart dining suite providing a perfect setting for more intimate evening meals.
Three very comfortable bedrooms, all with king size beds and flat screen televisions, have been individually decorated in bold shades with distinctive bed-linen and attractive artwork. The master bedroom has a cosy seating area while one of the two bathrooms includes a sauna. Those looking to stay in trim during their stay will also appreciate the property’s small private gym, complete with treadmill, exercise bike and power plate.
The quaint little village of Keri is just a stone’s throw away, with its traditional stone buildings, ancient bell tower and shady square. Keri’s small but pretty beach is lined with pine trees and a number of atmospheric tavernas. With its famously crystal clear waters, this is an idyllic spot for scuba diving and snorkelling, while boat trips to neighbouring islands and the breathtaking Blue Caves are also on hand. The island capital, Zakynthos Town, is around 20kms away, easily accessible by bus or car.
Villa Ambassador is a beautifully located property, best suited to a family of adults or a small group of friends in search of a completely relaxing, tranquil holiday.

Thank you! to George and Magda and the whole team at Villa Ambassador for a very warm welcome and amazing service throughout our two weeks here.
We had a fabulous time truly relaxing here to celebrate my 50th birthday!
The villa really does have everything you could wish for from a home from home and we loved using the pool - day and night - very refreshing.
But our overriding memory will be the spectacular views including a couple of stunning sunrises over Turtle bay/Island!!
Thanks you Zakynthos
We have had the most amazing 2 weeks in Villa Ambassador! Have stayed in many different countries and can honestly say this is probably one of the best villas we've stayed in.
It has so many extras compared to other villas we have rented. The views are lovely, the pool has been a welcome relief to the hot weather. Have used the gym on a daily basis which has been great.
Have visited many restaurants and can recommend Isolas, La Bruschetta and a bit further away Essence which is in Kalamatic
We hired a boat for a couple of days which is an absolute must!
Thank you so much to James Villas, George and our villa rep Jane who is an absolute delight!
Dear George and Magda,
We have had another really relaxing week in your beautiful villa. As always, you have made us so welcome, we really couldn't have asked for anything more.
You even checked we hadn't blown away after that unseasonal storm! How kind you are.
We look forward to seeing you again very soon to get our fix of your beautiful island.
Thank you for a wonderful week. The villa is absolutely beautiful - fantastic. We have truly relaxed. We have loved our evening strolls down to Keri harbour, enjoying the lovely restaurants overlooking the bay. A really great week, in a superb villa, on an amazing island. Thank you so much.
We were all very pleased with the villa and the area.
It is exceptional
Best villa we have stayed in.
We were the very fortunate Customers who you upgraded on our recent holiday to Zakynthos. Having returned yesterday from what was an absolutely fantastic holiday – one of our best ever – in again a fantastic location, we thought it appropriate to drop you an email to show our gratitude to you and anyone else involved in this decision for this awfully kind gesture, which you’ve no idea how much we’ve appreciated.
We cannot thank you enough.
Lovely villa, close to town and beach in a beautiful location.Quality of maid/gardener service was exceptionally good, only resulted in a long stay of staff at the villa (3x week for 2.5-3 hours) A bit less decorations would be more, on every table there is a vase or bowl, you tend to put on the nearest wardrobe when you are travelling with children anyway. It would have been lovely with half the ornaments. The quality of the kitchen appliances is very high and the gym is perfect
Excellent villa in excellent location. It is in easy, safe walking distance from 'supermarkets' tavernas and beach. When I asked the advisor about this she thought it wasn't safe to walk at night, though it is. Everyone connected with the villa, owner, his representative, maid and gardener were very friendly and helpful.
Quiet pleasant location
