      A beautiful week in the sun!

      We have been looked after by the amazing Bessiana, she is learning English so please chat!

      The Ionis (right then left) is amazing, gorgeous views and lovely food. Great food too at the Banana Baya.

      We would not recommend Giovanni's the food was awful and the service very slow - 1/2 an hour to get the bill!!!

      Gerakas and Daphni beaches are lovely and unspoilt. Peter's Tours on Argassi - Peter is fantastic -we went on the 3h turtle cruise - saw lots of turtles and swam in the amazing clear blue sea.

      Lidl on the road above the airport, central "supermarket" useful in the village.

      Beware of the mosquitos!

      Enjoy your stay.

    • Mr Hubbard, May 2017

      Wow! What a holiday!

      Villa was an oasis of tranquillity made all the more special by the very attentive Besjan who made us feel like royalty.

      Coffee house staff are very helpful and sourced us some fresh fish to cook from a local market. Ioni Restaurant was delicious with a lovely sea view.

      Stunning views from Keri lighthouse Taverna and further up the hill to Keri Lighthouse.

      Artisan olive oil, walk round tour and tasting is very interesting and the oils make great gifts to take home.

      I hope one day we will return.

      Restaurant reviews

      Beach Club - turn right at the bottom of the road and then left by the supermarket - Ionio - nice food.

      Further down the road is Baya Beach Club - nice but food just ok!

      Left at the supermarket there are two restaurants - OK!

      Best meal we had was Italian!! - turn right and then about 5/10 mins down the road - family run and the food was FAB! (sorry can't remember name) NOT the first one on R/H side - but a bit further on the right (begins with a "C"!)

      Dopia's House ?? - not friendly and food not very good!

      Bobbi's - good reviews - BUT? We were not impressed.

      Bessiana cleans and "looks after you" - she's lovely and can't do enough for you!

      Please leave helpful tips - not "house wonderful" - that is obvious!!!

      A Lovely Holiday

      We have had a lovely holiday here in Zakynthos. We went to the beach, hired a motorboat, and went to an awesome, thrilling waterpark! I swam in the lovely sea and played epic games at the arcade centre. I thought the windmill was like The Burrow from the 'Harry Potter' series. We also thought it (the villa) was tastefully decorated and clean!

      I hope you have a good holiday too!

    • Mrs Tankard, September 2014

      This was a birthday present and what an experience. This villa is simply wonderful and far exceeed any expectations. Thank you to the owner who is a STAR. Holiday highlights include The Coffee House and Deli, Gioovanni's Taverna, The Garden Restuarant, Caretta Beach Bar and Athenas Kitchen. Keri Lighthouse - beautiful sunsets. A first class experience of James Villas.

    • Mr Johnson, August 2014

      Had a fantastic relaxed week, loved the quirky tower and the eccentric mix of ornaments. We were in Zakynthos 20 years ago and the island has managed to retain its Greekness in most areas. Well done to the owners for equipping it with quality items and for keeping it so spic and span. Thank you so much for a memorable holiday.

    • Mr Wilkins, July 2014

      Thank you for a lovely week. We booked last minute and couldn't have hoped for anything so amazing. A big thank you to the owner who has looked after us so well and completely charmed the children.

    • Mr Walshe, June 2014

      A really nice villa in a quiet area but with enough restaurants and beach in walking distance. Extremely well serviced. Ideal for a couple or a family

    • Mr Walshe, June 2014

      What a fabulous villa with superb service from the owner. Great sitting in various places around the tower depending on the shade and the hot tub a bonus on a barmy evening. If its cool enough to walk turn right at the gate up the hill to the very top (45 mins) for view across both sides. Near the top a shady bench to have your picnic or water. If you enjoy it half as much as we have you will have a great holiday.

    • Mr MacKenzie, June 2012

      Fabulous location, close to some very friendly tavernas, bars and beautiful beaches.

    • Mr MacKenzie, June 2012

      A fabulous maid and gardener service. It made all the difference. Please pass on our thanks.

    • Mr Allured, June 2012

      Genuinely a remarkable villa in an outstanding location, quiet but with lovely tavernas and amenities all away from the built up parts. You definitely need a car and parking under the olive trees next door was fine. As others mentioned the maid was exceptionally helpful and not intrusive keeping the place spotless every day and was brilliant. Lovy beaches all walkable and villa pool also exceptional quality and cleanliness. We thought this was an absolutely 5 star villa.

    • Mrs Bath, October 2011

      Fabulous place.

    • Mrs Wren, August 2011

      The villa and all its facilities were fantastic. We would, however, not return to the same villa, only because life is too short and there are lots more fab places to visit.

    • Mrs Hooper, May 2011

      The housekeeper, came in everyday to either change the bedclothes or towels or bathmats etc. She was an absolute dream and worked far too hard. Being in our late seventies the only awkward part of the property was negotiating the staircase when descending as there were no hand rails so we had to be very careful indeed. The pool and jacuzzi were very welcome as the temperature rose to around 30 degrees! We certainly did some kilometres whilst on the island as we did enjoy seeing all of the many places of interest that were available and the food was good as well.

  • 2010
    • Mr McAndrew, July 2010

      The villa is absoulutely lovely, the beautiful style of the old rustic windmill which the convenience of hi-quality modern appliances. There are lots of quiant decorations placed around the villa giving it a homely personal touch. The cleaner was very thorough in cleaning and tidying the villa almost every day, she made the villa look lovely (we especially loved the bed linins she used). The villa is in one of the best locations of the island, we would highly recommend visiting 'Simply Greek' for evening meals and 'The Coffee House' for breakfast or lunch. The Deli next to it is good for convenience shopping and the owner is very friendly. The Gerakas beach is a short drive from the villa and is beautiful, soft fine sand, friendly small fish and clear waters with sand underneath, making the beach perfect although beach sunbeds cost 4 euros per bed. The villa is behind another villa on the road, with gates securing the whole property which isn't shown on the website so is confusing when finding the villa. The island is known for loggerhead turtles but we found out the best time to see the hatching turtles is August. We would recommend renting a boat from Keri and watching the sunset. We had a fantastic time, best villa we've ever stayed in and hope to return :)

      OMG!.... what a fantastic holiday we have just had, we want to tell everyone about the villa but also want to keep it to ourselves in case we can't get the dates we want next year. If you get the opportunity go there - go! the villa is superb, the owner is lovely and takes such good care of you and the village of Vassilikos is warm, friendly and welcoming. Do we want to go back? you bet we can't wait!

Devon Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely villa beautifully looked after by Besjana everyday. The pool was a bit murky but otherwise great. Excellent location with taverna and the beach in walking distance but would recommend a car to go further afield.
A very peaceful area not somewhere to go for the nightlife although plenty of people around if you want the company.
