During the day we spend hours reading, canoeing and snorkling for turtles, (which we see frequently). In the evenings we eat great food overlooking...

Porta del Mar is a secret I don't really want to share - but this would be doing an injustice to Tasos, Pavlina, Costas and Elina, the family who own and run this piece of the real Zakynthos. We've been seven times. That's how much we love it as a family. Perched on the coastline, this collection of eight stone...

The location of this place is simply beautiful. Eight stone villas, centred around a well-kept garden. There is a playground with swings, football and table tennis and then steps down to your own small private beach with instant access to the Ionian sea. Plenty of beds for sunbathing and lots of beach toys - buckets, spades, boats, small surf-boards. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Porta del mar is a small family-run resort of 8 stone villas for summer holidays with direct access to a sandy beach. Amazing sea views obtained from the gardens and inside the villas! The villas are self-catering and accommodate from 2-6 persons (one or two bedroom villas). They all form a horse shoe design, facing towards the sea and are traditionally and nicely decorated. They have spacious living rooms, large bedrooms with queen-size beds or twin single beds, all with solid, wooden ceilings and air-condition. Fully equipped kitchens include cooker, big fridge/freezer, wooden table that seats 4-6 and a full range of utensils. Their verandas are spacious and offer panoramic sea views. The villas are situated directly on our sandy, quiet beach and are surrounded by well kept and relaxing gardens. The beach is safe for children and the waters are clear, crystal and rather shallow. Everything you need is within short walking distance from the villa (groceries, bakery, taverns). ... more   less
