      Zakynthos beaches, restaurants and running guide

      Second time we have stayed at Doretta. Love the villa and stunning views. Local restaurants we thought Athena Kitchen was the best, for good food exceptional value and very friendly hosts. Strof next door was also good value, Small and intimate. 'Skartsafeli’ is more sophisticated and very good. 'Ionio' on the beach is a bit pretentious and quite pricey but lovely views of the beach. Go for the house red wine as it is the same as the expensive alternatives.

      For wonderful cocktails and drinks and friendliest welcome from Paul and Tineka, visit the coffee shop in the centre of the village. Village itself is charming and all the locals very friendly.

      Dafai beach is worth visiting but you need a car and take the main road from Argassi, as the track from the end of the village isn’t in a good condition. As the bridge between the track and the better road has collapsed you can’t access the better road if you use the track.

      Our thanks to Jane, our James villa rep, who sorted out any problems we had.

      Our table tennis has improved and great to have when the clouds came over. We’ll be back again.

      P.S. If you want to get fit, take the track up to the top of the mountain. My best time was 12.5 minutes runners should be able to do it in 10/11 minutes – good luck and by the way, stunning views over the Laguna

      Simply the Best Villa

      Simply the best villa we have ever stayed in! Very well appointed and the lay out works perfectly.

      As before, we confirm that Dafni was the best beach (the dive school is also very good, a try n dive would be perfect.),

      I tried to find it on a run, got lost and ran for miles... Follow the directions or drive.

      Didn’t have a bad meal out, try Ionian lamb from the oven from any specials.

      We wouldn’t recommend Turtle Beach Dive School in Keri, gear was old and tired and it was just a factory to them.

      The man in the supermarket(1st on the right hand side) is a delight with great cheese pies, try and get their before 10.00am for the best choice.

      Have a wonderful stay, we did.

      Tranquil with Stunning Views!

      We absolutely loved the villa and really enjoyed our stay here! Would recommend Da Camillo for excellent Italian food (makes a nice break from Greek food) and lovely owners; Ionio restaurant (right on the main road and turn left a couple hundred metres down) had amazing views of the beach and the sunset over Kefalonia! Agnadi and Windmill (both on the way to Zakynthos town) were both great with authentic Greek food.

      We walked to Dafni beach on one of the days which is a lovely downhill walk there, but a difficult uphill walk on the way back so wouldn't recommend doing in the heat! Directions: left out the villa, right after house with the Greek flag, left turn onto road, left at wire fence then straight on same road for about 20 mins until a steep left turn up a road that doesn't really look like a path which will take you onto the main paved road that heads left down to Dafni!

      Dafni was the quietest beach and free umbrellas but was fairly pebbly with slightly murkier waters that other beaches in the area because of the turtles it is underdeveloped. Would recommend Ionio beach, slightly busier, particularly during the middle of the day, but clear water and lovely white sand.

      There is a Lidl by the airport (30 minutes away) if you're looking for cheaper food & fresh produce but the supermarkets at the main road on the right are lovely too, but more expensive.

      Overall, we had a brilliant stay, the villa is in the perfect location - tranquil with stunning views! Absolutely loved the games room and the pool!

      Thanks so much!

      Lovely Location

      Enjoyed the pool and the views. Boys loved the games room. Great walks over the mountain but beware the dirt track to Dafni Beach!!

      Tavernas all good. Giavannis was a last day discovery and really good value for money.

    • Mr Deighton, August 2015

      First stay in Villa Doretta

      Really enjoyed our stay up on the hillside. Great views - our fifth stay in Vassilikos but our first stay in Villa Doretta.

      Our top tips:

      - Best Wi-Fi hotspots in the villa are in the small double bedroom and the small balcony - as well as adopting a titanic pose over the railings by the pool

      - We followed other reviews and walked over the hill to Dafni beach. Directions: Turn right at the house past the chickens with the Greek flag and then at the next fork in the road turn left up the hill and left onto another treacherous rocky hill! Good luck!

      - Best tavernas - good meals in all, but especially Giovannis, Ionian and Skartsofoli. All make you feel welcome.

London Friends
A lovely villa that could do with some updating especially in the kitchen area.
Annoying that the electricity is turned off when you leave (in relation it turns off the fridge too!). However, overall I would go back there and the views out are fabulous.

Bristol Group
It was a fabulous villa, the games room was great and plenty of room for everyone to enjoy themselves without being on top of each other. Lovely setting on the hill, great views. Great pool and nice garden. the villa was very clean and the maid service was very thorough. Would definitely recommend this villa.

Calne Family group
Glorious panoramic views of the sea and countryside can be seen from the villa. The outside space is wonderful where spent most of our time. The villa is situated high up on the mountainside so accessing it by car is in 1st gear up a series of bends on a narrow road. It was quite daunting the first time we went up, but you soon get used to it and is well worth it for the peace and quietness of the location. We spent a fabulous fortnight at Doretta villa and would love to go back again.

Plymouth Family - one at
Excellent villa, would find it hard to fault. Smallest issue was with the loss of internet on occasion - applicable to teenagers!

Road leading to the entrance is a challenge but great fun once accustomed to the island roads.

Chertsey Friends
Villa Doreta is beautiful, very large and very private. It is at the top of fairly steep winding road that is rough in places so you really must have a car. This to us was a positive point as few people pass by and it is very quiet and overlooks the town of Vasillikos with a great vista of the sea too. The villa is very clean and well looked after with great amenities including the games room and pool deck and a large brick barbecue. The pool was maintained daily by a visiting pool guy and cleaners made a visit mid holiday to ensure the place was clean for us. Overall very impressed and we would visit again without hesitation.
