We have had a beautiful two weeks in this amazing 'Maria Villa' and loved every minute.
Highly recommended hiring a boat from Big Blue and venturing the high seas for yourselves. Fantastic day out!!
Every restaurant and bar we visited was so nice we didn't have a favourite. Argassi and Zakynthos were both amazing for shopping and eating etc.
The sea views from this villa are amazing and make sunrise and sunset very special times of the day.
Very well equipped inside and comfy too!
If you're driving, be careful!
We're sad to be going home and this island and its lovely people will stay with us. Would love to come back in the future.
A wonderfully relaxing week spent at Villa Maria!! With the weather constantly in the mid 30s we've basically spent our time relaxing in and out of the lovely pool, sipping Mythos (and highly recommend Alfa beer too) and reading novels...bliss!
The restaurant on top of the hill from here (loved gazing up at it lit up at night) is lovely, very friendly staff. BUT best restaurant (we discovered on last evening here) is Zorba's in Agassi - fab grub, and v tasty waiters too!!
Molly Malone's bar on the main strip in Agassi is fun, lovely staff and great for a chilled out game of Crazy Golf (you can even carry your drinks round with you ...result!)
If you've hired a car - like we did - please drive carefully as the other drivers, mopeds and quad bikes zoom along like nobody's business ...Yikes!!
Took a 6km (approx.) drive along top road (turn left at top of lane) to Vasilikos Beach, (€5 to hire a beach brolly and 2 sunbeds) and a crowded but lovely, sun-kissed time was had on the sandy stretch there, gorgeous warm, clear sea... and then a beautiful meal in a little restaurant at the top of the hill away from the beach - look out for it, they have tables atop a tree house structure, perfect as the sun sets over our beers.
Can't believe it's only been a week here. Fab villa, can't fault it and will definitely return if we get the chance. Oh! And everything seems so cheap! (Let's hope Brexit doesn't spoil it!)
Have fun folks!
A beautiful villa in a wonderful position with incredible views (sun up in the morning is wonderful!!)
Drove to Puerto Vrani, a lovely drive with incredible views, parked easily and booked a boat trip to the shipwreck and caves. The shipwreck was interesting but spoilt a little by how busy the beach was. Absolutely loved seeing and swimming in the Blue Caves. We have never seen the colour blue like it, astounding.
Zakynthos Town is fun in the evening for a drink/ice cream and a walk around the shops or port. Agassi is good to visit for a meal/drink and we absolutely loved the restaurant Aguadi (you can see it on the hill). Traditional food, good service and spectacular views.
Kaminia Beach is literally 5 mins drive away, small, quiet with a lovely beach bar selling food etc. Good for snorkelling.
Spin Spot is a beautiful little pottery shop as you drive out of Agassi, we bought several pieces (really well made and unusual).
As with previous comments, the mosquitos and wasps are annoying! Strongly recommend a good insect repellent!
We had a wonderful time and are sad to go home.
G aged 12 - I particularly enjoyed the pottery shop and the town, as well as getting my hair braided. My favourite shop would have to be the pottery shop though, with many gorgeous, unusual trinkets. I have loved it here, I would recommend it to everyone looking for a peaceful getaway. I am sad to leave, I loved every second.
S aged 11 - Villa Maria is an amazing villa to stay in and has all the working facilities you would need. I (along with the rest of my family) have very much enjoyed our stay! and hope to be returning soon
We had a lovely stay at this beautiful villa! Very comfortable and has everything a family would need. Superb views from the balcony, especially at sunrise.
We visited Shipwreck Bay and the blue caves which were fantastic. Zakynthos centre itself is spectacular, particularly at night and people are warm and friendly.
Gerakas Beach was also very nice though the kids wanted to be by the pool more. We have had a really lovely holiday and hope you do too.
We had a great week at our villa, the pool was loved by the granddaughter.We went to Keri beach and hired a boat for 4 hours, this was amazing.
Went to Aganassi Restaurant at the top of the hill a few times.
Harris and Debs very friendly, hope to be back.
What a great villa – we did have a thunderstorm the last day – the noise was amazing and an earthquake the next day 4.2 tremor – but it all added to the fun.
We did the Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour which was good – Speedboat hire at Keri Beach – Zakynthos Yours all the beaches down to Gerahas – all good.
All we needed was in the villa – waking up to the sunrise – watching the moon at night.
Argassi is good, many shops, bars, restaurants - our favourite were Zorbas and Dyonmos – lamb chops and gyros.
In all we had a great time.
A very beautiful villa, island is spectacular, food fabulous, people very friendly. All of which have made our week here very special.
