A good place to go to spend a couple of hours. It's well organised and reasonably priced with a selection of packages to choose from and different karts for different age groups. For anyone not wanting to take part there's a cafe with a viewing area, which serves a variety of soft drinks, smoothies and alcoholic drinks and also hot drinks and food.

It's perfect location on the sea front means that you can order some drinks, go for a relaxing swim in the Mediterranean and come back for some pittas and dips! Yum! x

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at this excellently equipped villa. The gardens, barbecue area and pool were also great features. We also made use of the variety of fruit that was in the trees. The rep, Jane, was extremely helpful in explaining the roads to us, as well as the recommendations on things to do and where to eat out.


We found that all the restaurants we visited were very good but our favourite was, Pavadosiano Taverna between Alykanas and Alykes - overlooking the canal.


We enjoyed exploring the island including trips to Shipwreck Bay, the Blue Caves, Gerakas Bay, Keri (Bay and village) and Zante Water Village. This is a good way top cool down all ages.


PS We love the hammock

A fantastic last minute deal! Villa

We had a last minute break from looking after our grandchild for two days a week.


Having travelled with James Villas on numerous occasions we had a look on-line to see if there were any vacancies - and look what we found!! Villa Lilianna!


We had a fabulous week - the weather was glorious (air con very welcome!)


Spent most of our time around the pool and relaxing but also went out for evening meals.


We can recommend the taverna on the beach - I think it's called Paradiso, go there in time for the sun setting.


The restaurant at the side of the Olive Lounge is also nice at lunchtime.


Another lovely little taverna is on the main road (turn left at the end of the villa) - it's on the left hand side - stunning views.


Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.


A big thank you to Yanis too

Villa Isabella has been a lovely tranquil place for our holiday. The villa facilities and the cleanliness have been superb and without exception this is one of the nicest we have stayed at.


The information provided by all of the previous guests has been a big help and in our stay this week we have completed nearly all of them. Our favourites have been the beaches and boating at Keri and St Nicholas Port, both have good tavernas especially in Keri town where you can watch the sunset.


We also tried Ampelostrates Horese Vineyard in Koiliomenos whch is only open Friday - Sunday and is a totally different experience but is worth going. The food is good and buy the house red and white which they sell to take away.


Thanks again to Victoria, Voula and Pepos for a memorable holiday.

Dear Dimitris and Meni,


Thank you so very much for our lovely chocolate cake and surprise present. The cake was so light and delicious, I am just sorry we couldn't manage to eat it all. The present is a beautiful souvenir of our time here. It won't be our last time in Augusta! This is our third visit to Skopelos and the best villa!


Future guests. As the previous occupants fed the cats I thought we should carry on! Sorry. They've had food and milk (lots) a big bowl each - cat bowl, morning and evening.


If we had had more time here for a trip to the vets for them both we would have done! I'm not sure if tabby is pregnant or not but he's still trying! Little tabby runs away from you but when the food is put down she goes to it. He's just a lovely boy.


This has been a wonderful break for us both and we return to the UK with thoughts of returning.


Have a lovely holiday whomever reads this. Skopelos is a wonderful island.


Once again thank you Dimitris and Meni

A lovely villa with everything you require. It is well maitained and cleaned a couple of times during the week.
Judy looked after us very well.
There is a path alongside the villa which takes you down to the bay,shops etc. This is a shared path but this was not an issue for us, it is quite steep but a steady climb through fruit and olive trees.
The only issue (small) was there is a first aid box in the villa but did not have anything worthwhile in it so take your own stuff if you thing you might need to. I am sure Judy would have sorted this out if we had asked.
Great Villa.

The villa is wonderful and so is the pool. It is in a bit of a remote location but we like to have a quiet holiday, away from the main resorts. So, a car is a must!.


We particularly enjoyed the games area, which we played on most evenings.


Recommendations - the two best restaurants we ate in were 'El Sueno' in Mikro Nisi (amazing Stuba area and food! and 'Vrakos' in Agios Marina. (Amazing views and moussaka!)


We also went a few times to a fantastic crazy golf in Tsilivi - Fantasy Mini Golf.


For wine tasting we went to Grampsas which was lovely and visited the Olive Oil Factory.

28/5-11/6 with 1 day of rain (Av temp 26-31)


Villa is just excellent in every way (pick your own oranges from the orange grove) Nearby is the supermarket and bakery also roadside green grocery (it is all local produce so expect misshapen fruit and veg and see if they have any strawberries - the best we have tasted in a long time. On the way into town (Tsilivi) at the crossroads there is a butchers (turn right) he will make your chicken or pork souvalaki while you wait.


Villa is so beautiful and well maintained. BBQ was well used. Good exercise carrying your food and drink etc from the kitchen.


The pool is really good (had a job getting our boy out!) Please take care when walking around the far side as the floor very slippery when it is wet.


You are really spoilt for choice when eating out, here are some of our favourites


Veggera - In town (friend of Fay's) gorgeous bread.


Pierros - In town (amazing ribs and mixed grill)


M-eating - In town (lamb kleftiko. They flamed it at the table)/p/>

Vardiola - (out of the villa gates,turn left, then at the end of the track turn left again and follow the signs, it is elevated so good views of Kefalonia and really good traditional food.


Porto Roulis - Turn right out of the gates and just follow the track. This really is a lovely taverna. Nothing fancy, just good food. If you like fish this is the place. I went in the kitchen and chose my own (they weigh the fish and give you a price) be warned! Some of the family ordered plain grilled chicken ,they were ! RATHER LARGE!


Finally, a huge thank you to Fay, Spiros (especially the surprise which was left in our fridge), also Jane who helped us with a problem we had. We were made so welcome and hope to return soon. Must also thank Marie and the team for cleaning the villa and helping make our stay so enjoyable. Hope I haven't gone on too much and the info is of good use to you.

Local beaches, eating out and eating in tips Villa

We've had a very relaxing and lazy week, only venturing as far as Shipwreck Bay by car and Zakynthos Town.


Local beaches

Gerakas - nice with ample parking


Dafni Beach - lovely but scary, rough track road to get there


Porto Rosa - ok - sunbeds for €7 but a bit tatty.


Eating out

We followed previous guest's advice Agnodi was our favourite - the owners really seem to enjoy what they are doing and the food was good.


Windmill - very nice, pizzas too


El Espanol - road to Porto Rosa - Greek and Spanish tapas, nice couple.


Porto Mela - on Dafni Beach - lovely and home made bread.


Eating in

If you need a big shop then My Supermarket on this side of Zakynthos town is probably the best for selection and prices. Bakery on the way to Gerakas has fresh bread.


Enjoy your time at this lovely villa and friendly island!

Casa Del Mar Villa

What a peach of a property! We arrived early and thought we'd locate the villa in readiness for 4:00 pm. We were lucky to find the villa owners were there and we were welcomed in as they hadn't had guests the previous week. The villa is perfect with the communal areas and one twin on the top floor and the three remaining bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs. The villa is well equipped with laundry facilities, iron and hairdryer and all linen and towels are provided.
There are some great bars and restaurants within easy walking distance but the pool makes it easy to stay at home too. The owners have a lot of knowledge to share so take advantage of this and you'll do well.

Wow! What a holiday! Villa

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.

Shame to go home! Villa

Spent a fantastic week lazing round the pool, had the good intentions to explore the island but couldn't tear ourselves away from the sun loungers (and the cat and the tortoise!)


Had some lovely food, found the fish taverna a bit too 'rustic' for me...but had some lovely evenings at the other one on the waterfront (lamb in oven is v nice!!) Also went up to Lofos Restaurant (main road, turn right and follow the signs - about 10 minute drive - fab views) Jane the rep is brilliant, very friendly and informative, looked after well by Fay and her team as well.

Places to visit and places to eat Villa

We can endorse most of the comments from the previous visitors regarding the villa, the owners and the daily cleaner (Victoria). Their warmth, friendliness and attention to any request was exceptional.


The villa's location suited us admirably - so quiet and peaceful, and very pretty too!


Places to visit


Porto Vromi - to take boat to Shipwreck Bay


Limni Keri - do take boat to Turtle Island for an hour


Kampi - for sunset


Agios Nicholaos area- the prettiest coastal area on the Island and lots of decent tavernas


Zakynthos Town - worth a 2/3 hour visit


NB The eastern coast is much busier and very touristy we would give Alikes a big miss!!


However, we had very good meal in pretty taverna @ Tsilivi


Places to Eat


"Selene" @ Agios Leon - not the prettiest but good food and service and value for money.


"Sunset Taverna" @ Kampi - good food and great location


Most of the tavernas near to Agios Nicholaos - PILARINOS @ Makrys Gialos


Waterfront tavernas @ Limni Keri

Restaurant reviews Villa

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!!!

Great Location - Lots To Do And See Villa

Great villa! We enjoyed our week here at Isabella. The welcome pack was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. - thank you! Thanks also for such a well-equipped, clean and well maintained house - Victoria, you are a star!


We didn't see a lot of Peppos and Voula but it is clear they know how to make guests welcome - and what well tended gardens and pool. We appreciate your thought and hard work.


Great location, off the beaten track just as required. Tranquil and rural, and nice to meet your aerobatic swifts!


We steered clear of the busier resorts but enjoyed Keri (lighthouse) and Keri Beach, Porto St Nicholas (cheapest shipwreck and Blue Cave cruise + the excellent fish tavern at the beach); Kampi for the sunsets (Cross Taverna was ok but the one before is friendlier and better.)


Agios Leon was a friendly base with helpful garage + Selena Taverna highly recommended - we were well looked after there on 3 evening occasions.


We were surprised the Mill Tavern up the road was closed as was Porto Limnionas Tavern - too early in the season? Do not miss GIRI!!


All in all a fun relaxing week!
