This has to be on your to do list, at the top of the island at glossa , one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. The view from the table is awesome looking over loutraki harbour, and the food is amazing, the staff are first class and very friendly, we were there at the end of season so missed out on being able to dine on the roof, park on the road to loutraki or on the square near the butchers, because glossa is pedestrian only, narrow pretty streets, and before you reach agnanti, climb the curved steps to the right, to get to the tiny town square, well worth the 40 minute journey from Skopelos town where we were staying.

Have stayed in many James villas in many places but this is definitely the best view. Had a lovely holiday. We did lots of things the first week with the younger generation and relaxed on the second week.


Loved Keri Beach and spent quite a bit of time there. Tried the quieter spots off track but got a puncture so put us off.

Hired a boat from Captain's Rentals at Keri Beach. It was brilliant, we had a skipper and the four of us got 3 hours seeing all the best bits.


We went to the water village on Thursday (quietest day according to Jane) which was fun. Drove Charlotte and Max into Laganas for the evenings which they loved (aged 21 and 23) they got taxis back which cost about €15.


Went on a Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour which wasn't as good but the drive to St Nicholas Port was spectacular.


Jane has been extremely helpful recommending places and sorting out the pool pump when it stopped working.


Dennis Taverna will come and collect you from the bakery and return you in the evening if you eat there.

Thank you for your beautiful villa. Despite a couple of cloudy mornings and a couple of very windy evenings we have had a relaxing and lovely holiday. Victoria has been amazing keeping the villa spotlessly clean so a very big thank you to her.


Places we have enjoyed -->


Keri - hire a private motor boat to visit Keri Caves and Turtle Island then finish off the day with a visit to the tavern for an ouzo and beer. Food ok there as well.


Porto Roxa - Ionian Taverna for lunch then a free sunbed or cradle to have a sunny siesta.


Cape Skinara - fantastic views over to Kefalonia and boat trip to the Blue Caves. Beware the long walk down to get your boat - lots of steps for old knees like ours!!


Agios Nikolaos Bay - is really lovely. Sit and watch the boats and catamarans struggle to berth!


Zakynthos town - lovely drive to get there. Plenty of places to park on the front then a slow stroll along the front with a meal in the town.


Alykes - lovely beach, sandy, so not ideal on a windy day. happy hour cocktail then a meal at Jo Paradosiano. Fabulous! Probably the best restaurant we have visited this week - no, definitely the best!!


Restaurants we have eaten at


Selen - decent home cooked food but avoid the red wine at all costs!


The Cross Taverna at Kambi - lovely views, ideal to see the sunset. Food ok, wine ok.


Alexandro at Maries - very good value, lovely home cooked food, very friendly tavern.


La Bruschetta at Keri - lovely Italian as a change from Greek cuisine. Food very good but a little more expensive.


The Old Mill at Loncha - avoid. The worst Greek meal we have ever experienced in 6 years of visiting the Greek islands.

This has been a wonderful first week of our two week holiday in Zakynthos. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chloe; we have chilled out and relaxed in and out of the pool, we have had a bit of sun, eaten well and drunk well.


Lovely memories to take on to the next villa and to take home.

Delicious pizzas, fabulous sunsets and home made wine Villa

We've had an enjoyable stay here at Isabella. The property was generally even nicer than the online pictures, whilst the service from the outside team (especially the maid) was first class. This villa offers excellent value for money.


The car hire proved essential - the village is just too far away to walk (especially the steep climb on the way back!)


Some recommendations for fellow travellers:



  • Kera beach is very pleasant. We really liked The Wave bar and restaurant who served fabulous food and lovely local wine (yes, really). Delicious pizzas!

  • Michaelis Taverna is at Kambi which we preferred to The Cross. Kambi is about 15-20 mins drive away and the road is fine for driving back after dark - which is essential so that you can enjoy the fabulous sunsets from the Taverna.

  • The Old Mill is about 20 minutes from here at Loucha. Simply turn right on the road at the bottom of the villa driveway and keep going. The hospitality is great as is the food whilst the views are delightful!

  • Selene Taverna in the village is ok to sit in although the décor is a bit average. But they deliver food to the villa which is fabulous!! There is a little homemade wine shop next door...the wine takes some getting used to but it's fine.


Enjoy your stay. Thanks Pepos, Victoria and Voula.

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!

Here for 2 weeks. Lovely villa, stayed in Naisy last year (next door), this is the better of the two, gets the sun longer and more private. The staff are so friendly and helpful from the cleaners to the pool cleaner, nothing is too much trouble.


Had a lovely welcome from Jane welcoming us back and was pleased to catch up with her again. The personal touch goes a long way.


The 'Killer Bank' didn't seem too bad this year.


After coming here for 3 years the staff in the restaurants become more like family than friends, everyone is so genuine, helpful and friendly. Couldn't wish to meet nicer people. See you again next year.

Top tips for family holidays Villa

This is our second time in Zakynthos having stayed on the south east of the island last year in a villa near Agassi. This year we wanted to experience the less commercial aspect in the west.


Firstly let me echo all that the other guests have said about this wonderful villa and most importantly our hosts Voula, Pepos and Victoria in that their friendliness and professionalism has made our stay even more amazing. Victoria has kept our villa clean and tidy and we can't thank her enough.


Villa Chloe has provided superb seclusion and privacy and our 4 daughters have loved the swimming pool!


I've read all of the previous recommendations but what I will say is, don't be afraid to venture out and explore the island, that way you discover a few hidden gems. Road signs aren't great but if you have a reasonably good map you soon get a feel for seeking out villages and get a sense of direction.


That said, let me tell you about some of our escapades...


BEACHES


Keri Beach - is very pebbly, not many sandy areas. The beach slopes gently into the sea and stays shallow for a long while - great for kids.


Dafni Beach - Opposite the more commercial Banana Beach to the south of the island. Beautiful, long sandy beach but no shade on the beach. Shade can be found in the 3-4 tavernas but we advise to take your own brollys and beach mats.


Alykes - ***our favourite*** Lovely soft sand, sunbeds and brollys on the beach. Good tavernas and bars and lovely sloping beach into the sea. You go out to waist height for a good 20 - 30 metres, so great for kids. BRILLIANT


FOOD


The little shop down the road is good for top ups (milk, bread etc) but suggest using the Express or Lidl stores for bulk shops. Express quite good for meats and cheeses.


Taverna Sunset @ Kambi (left down the road when you turn right onto the main road for the village) Good quality food and beautiful sunset! A defo go and see.


Selene Taverna - Basic food, pizza is good. Limited menu.


Garden of Tastes - Agio Leon village (to the left of the main shop in the village) Expensive food, good crepes though - recommend the Strawberry crepes. NOT A ZOO - trust me! Does have a small kids play area and a few animals.


***Jo Pavadosiako Taverna in Alykes*** (if sea to your left - exit Alykes heading towards Alykanaas, just on right as you exit the main town) BRILLIANT - our best restaurant. Great food, good menu - very popular and takes bookings (phone number in guestbook)


We also ate in a lot, didn't get to use the BBQ but see others have used it.


THINGS TO DO


Sunset @ Kambi - beautiful - a MUST!


Sarakinado Water park - went twice last year and twice this year, kids love it and it's a good waterpark. ***TIP***Print off discount vouchers available online.


Drive to the Blue Caves (beautiful photos) and take a boat trip.


Shipwreck by car - not great, really busy. It's ok, you can walk across the mountain if parked up - take some decent shoes as flip flops won't cut it! Boat trip best way to visit.


All in all an excellent holiday, 2 weeks in a lovely location in a tranquil, serene villa with wonderful hosts. Villa cleaned daily.
Awesome holiday from the 6 of us!

We'll be back very soon...

Well, what a fantastic week we have had! Spent a good few days enjoying the villa, plus great days out at Keri beach (where we hired a speed boat for the afternoon - MUST do!) Also lovely day at Casa Playa. We visited Barbara Beach and St Nicholas Beach before finally settling at Casa Playa, which had something for everyone. St Nicholas Beach was lively but the sea was not very nice due to the amount of seaweed. No such issue at Casa Playa, so would recommend this one. Nice sun beds for only €6 each for the day. Menu was also good with nice food.


Some nice restaurants in Zakynthos Town, also went to the Utopia, again very nice. But our favourite was the Ekapteoconi (card in guestbook) which is only 5 mins from the villa (turn right at the bottom of the hill and you can't miss the signs on the right hand side.) Great service, great food and lovely atmosphere! Not great on the desserts side, but they bought us some complimentary Figs which were gorgeous!!


Loved Zante, loved the Villa Aloni, no doubt we'll be back very soon.


PS Thank you to Jane who gave us some gret advice and tips...

I loved going to Banana Beach there was a lot to do there, were cute fish and the sea was very warm and I would recommend it. - Abi age 11 :)

Please remember to go and visit the Sea Life turtle REscue Centre next to Gerakas Beach, to visit the animals and especially the goats as there is a very cute goat called Dizzy (we named him) who has braqin damage and is adorable so remember to go and say hi! - Lucy (14)
