Lithakia Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroomed cottage sleeps 4 with private pool close to the beach
The cottage built after the 1953 earthquake has been lovingly restored in 2009 and is attached to the owners villa built at the same time. This imposing property commands panoramic sea views of the south of the Island from the Argassi Peninsulla to Keri with Marithanesi (turtle ) Island in the centre..On the hillside on the edge of the village of Lithakia the cottage is set in its own olive grove of over an acre with fruit trees, gardens and even chickens (fresh eggs are available)
The air conditioned cottage also has underfloor heating with a double bedroom, lounge/second bedroom with TV/DVD player and stereo. The modern kitchen is equiped with a cooker, washing machine, fridge, toaster, tea maker, coffee maker, steam iron, ironing board, cutlery, crockery and kitchen utensils. The luxury tiled bathroom has a WC, hand basin, bath and walk in shower. All linen and towels are provided. The large veranda is supplied with table and chairs with steps to the pool area.
The walks on Zakynthos are some of the best in The Mediterranean. The routes normally follow the tracks used by the olive farmers and quite often you will not come across a single person on a walk of 15 kilometres.
In Spring and Autumn the hillsides are covered with many varieties of wild flowers and swooping buzzards complete the amazing scenery.
Walk round a corner and come across stunning views of the mountains and sea with dramtatic cliffs and caves, the walks on the Island are a truly memorable experience.
