We visited for 10 days in July, first with a group of friends for three days, and then for a week with family and children. This was the perfect villa for a large group. Lovely cool air-conditioned rooms, lots of characterful seating areas and places to relax, and a clean and welcoming pool that saw a lot of use!
The gardens are large and packed with fruit trees, and the location is perfect for those looking to get away from it all. Easy access to anywhere on the island with taxis or by car, and the most incredible views across vineyards and olive groves to the hills in the distance.
The team who run the villa, particularly Spyros the caretaker, are very much part of the experience and took great pride in every aspect from cleaning the villa to advising on day-trips and even booking hire cars. We asked a lot of them and they were always happy to help :D
Thanks to everyone at Sarakino House of Literature for making our holiday so special!
We just came back from a 1 week vacation in Zakynthos
We were an extended family of 14 people: 8+6 children
It was the best villa we ever got in the Greek islands. our family is going every summer
to a villa in one of the Greek Islands.
The main points:
very big villa,
6 bedrooms (in 2 buildings), + a huge living room, 4 bathing rooms
extremly nice host (John, the father of Emmanuela Stamiri, and his wife).
very large pool and sunbeds.
WiFi in the buildings and pool.
Beautiful house, well kept
very big grounds surrounded by green fruits trees and vineyard.
10 minutes from the beach.
Many good restaurants around (10 minutes drive)
not more than 45 minutes to any beach in Zakynthos.
Must have a car.
I can't say any negative word.
