About the property

A villa retreat with the character of a by gone era

In the middle of the breathtaking island of Zakynthos, close to the Main Town and with ideal access to stunning beaches, landmarks and villages, lies Sarakino: The House of Literature, an unusual Villa retreat for discerning vacationers who value the unique.

Having entertained in the past world travelers, writers, artists, academics & dear friends of diverse origins and walks of life, Sarakino is the ideal setting for groups, families, couples & individual vacationers.

The Villa, with a fully equipped kitchen, A/C throughout, 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en suite), balconies, verandas and view to the swimming pool is a retreat full of character.

For larger groups that wish to stay at the Villa or to accommodate special requests, there is a separate guest house also available (The House of Poetry) that sleeps up to 5 extra guests and has 2 double bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Please note: rates will be adjusted accordingly for those wishing to book both properties.

At Sarakino guests can find valuable handmade fixtures, antique furniture, vintage accents, unusual artworks, rare fabrics, exotic touches (from our travels in Africa, Latin America, Asia & Europe) and a separate Library with hundreds of book titles.

An inspired, unique environment where visitors can leave worries behind, unwind & allow for creative expression or simply ... daydreaming.

If you are looking for a different summer sanctuary off the beaten track, Sarakino welcomes you.
