SITUATED IN THE CONSERVATION AREA OF DAFNI WITH STUNNING SEA AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Vassilikos Villa Rental Photos and Description

Detached two bedroom villa

Villa Katerina is a two bedroom air-conditioned detached villa set in a quiet location of olive trees and panoramic sea views. It sits in half an acre of natural terrain with gardens, sun terraces and outside sitting and eating areas. There is ample parking for at least four cars.

Property location: Villa Katerina is situated in the quiet location of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos with stunning sea views overlooking the turtle protected beach of Dafni in the southern most point of the island. Although it is close to the sea and the mountains with beautiful walks it is still handy for the local tavernas and shops of Vassilikos and only 20 minutes by car to the airport and Zakynthos town. There is everything close by for young adults the lively Banana beach for boat trips and all water sports only 10 minutes by car and for those in their later years wanting peace and quiet we have beautiful Dafni Beach only five minutes by car where you can have lunch or dinner with the waves practically lapping at your feet and where the famous loggerhead turtles lay their eggs. Come and experience the Greek countryside and lifestyle.

The villa is a fully equipped comfortable home awaiting that special holiday.

Car hire can either be arranged on line by you or we can do it locally if you require.

Cathy and Bob the owners of the villa have lived on Zakynthos for over ten years so have a good knowlege of the island and will do everything possible to make your holiday enoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you very much for the nice time we had in your wonderful villa Katerina. We enjoyed the house very much . The lovely views, the sunny terraces and the tranquillity were perfect. It was also the ideal place to explore the island. We also liked the company of Boy dog who was pleased to see us every day,

We hope you have a good summer and wish you all the best. Perhaps we come next time.

My husband and I moved from England to Zakynthos in the year 2000 and have lived here permanently ever since. We purchased the land and was closely involved in the building of our villa and this is the first year we have rented our property.

Catherine and Bob Thompson purchased this villa in 2000

We think this villa will appeal to people wanting beautiful views away from the tourist trail but not in the least bit lonely, the farmer comes with his sheep every morning to wander in the olive groves and yet you are so near to beautiful beaches and all the amenities you could wish for.

Sitting on the verandah watching beautiful sunsets over the bay is magical, you feel you are on top of the world

FAB VIEWS, LOVELY PROPERTY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very relaxing week, enjoying the views and the peace and quiet of this lovely part of Zante. The villa is exactly as you see from the photos and more, it's a lovely home away from home. You are spoilt for choice with all the sitting areas, especially the sofa for relaxing with a book or just enjoying the wildlife and views. Some wonderful tavernas are very easily reached by car, or you can easily spend the whole day and evening relaxing having a bbq and a glass of Greek wine! Everyone we met were so warm and friendly, especially the owners of the villa - Kathy and Bob, not forgetting their dogs - Jacky and Boy. Would definitely recommend staying at Villa Katerina for either a very quite laid back rest or using it as an ideal base to explore the sandy beaches and the rest of this lovely island.
We will be returning again next year. Thank you Kathy and Bob for making us so welcome, look forward to seeing you both again.

GREAT SITUATION.

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect property for us. The setting was breathtaking with amazing views out across the sea and outdoor seating areas providing an ideal spot to watch the sunset. My favourite spot was the sofa on the verandah where I could read my book looking out across the bay. It was completely peaceful - the only sounds coming from the local wildlife (including peacocks!) providing the perfect place for a laidback and relaxed holiday.
The house itself was lovely and Bob and Cathy were next door to provide any assistance or information that we needed.
Hope we can come back soon.

OUR COMMENT

  • 5 of 5
House that we recommend for every type of person who wants to experience the scenery and the lives of zante .. We had a great: beautiful house, tidy, clean, convenient both to get to the beaches, either to go into the city, is to turn the 'island. Easy, with everything you need and more. Intimate and beautiful more than excellent, discreet but owners of the company together with two dogs and a few cats. They offer more than necessary at a honest price and this has hit us very much ..
even the kids enjoyed everything: the barbecue and cooked meat from his father, the great dogs and faithful companions of the game, particularly one: Boy. Also home non-binding, big sufficiency for staying there calmly and without fatigue or stress household goods (a precious hand was given to us by the owner). Ideal position to reach any beach even the most beautiful as Dafni and Gerakas .. Ideal location to restaurants or any store for the necessary and excellent for enjoying nature and the silence so rare during the year. I recommend everyone stay: for sure you stay well..Have a nice holidays and even if we go back to zante (beautiful island) will definitely go back there,..Best Regards. Elena, Daniele, Gabriele, Samuele

EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATION WITH STUNNING VIEWS.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Villa Katerina in June 2013.
It is positioned in an absolutely wonderful elevated location with breathtaking views across the Bay of Laganas with Pelouzo Island in the foreground..
Extremely peaceful location away from everything!
The accommodation is excellent, all that is needed for an “away from it all” holiday.
You will need a car but no problem as car hire is very reasonable in Zakynthos. Suggest you arrange your car before your visit so you can pick up from the airport.
The villa owners ,Robert and Cathy were extremely helpful and live nearby so are always available should you have any problems, we didn’t!!
Robert met us at the airport and guided us to the villa on our arrival!
Villa Katerina is on a hillside above Dafni Beach which is 5 mins away by car down the “mountain” from the villa.
Dafni Beach is a lovely unspoilt beach with several quiet beach tavernas.
There is a supermarket and a selection of excellent tavernas/restaurants nearby, again within 5 mins drive from the villa to the coast road the other side of the mountain.
Zakynthos Town which is the main town on the island is under half and hour away and is well worth a visit for a wander around the little shops and perhaps coffee or lunch on the harbour.
We had a marvellous holiday at Villa Katerina , we give a big thank you to Robert and Cathy for making our stay so memorable.
We will be back, absolutely no question about that!

BEST PLACE ON THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
Great Welcome and generally very friendly owners (and their pets :)) who do everything to make your holiday perfect. The house is fantastic and luxury equipped with everything you need! It is located in the hills with an awesome view over laganas bay. You have your own barbecue. Since there are no neighbours and no traffic the holidays were very relaxing.

Notes:
Unfortunately as there are a few steps to access the front door and certain patio areas and stairs to the first floor it is not really suitable for young toddlers or wheelchair bound guests. It is ideal for older children as they have the great outdoors to play safely in. It is a cosy villa in a stunning area, the owners live next door so are on hand to help you with any problems you might have. We do not have a swimming pool and our reasonable price reflects this, however we are very close to many quiet beaches where you can be until the small hours of the morning if you so wish! It is beautiful to sit very quietly on the edge of the beach in the moonlight and watch the loggerhead turtles come out of the sea to lay their eggs. A once seen never forgotten experience
