A Beautiful comfy, quiet villa with spectacular views
We had a lovely stay at Villa Ionis it was everything we could have hoped for and there are lots of fantastic places to visit and Tavernas to eat in , not far away from the villa ,Zakynthos is a very beautiful island and this villa definatly makes the most of this you can even see the fantastic views when you are swimming in the pool.
Beautiful Villa with shaded areas
The Villa was perfect for the four of us - close to lovely bars and cafes - with beautiful sea views and up in the olive groves and cypress trees. the little shaded areas and hammock created peaceful resting zones.
Great view, well equipped house and caring service
You never know what you are going to get when booking through an online site such as HomeAway. However, with Villa Ionis our expectations were greatly exceeded; honestly, the photos don't do it justice, it looks much better in our opinion.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was hard to leave. The view and atmosphere is great, pool clear and sunrise is astonishing. The villa is well equipped with all basics, a nice kitchen, bbq grill and pool accessories.
Mike and Joan are very welcoming and are just the nicest warmest people. They took care of our every request and really made us feel at home.
Delightful Secluded Villa With Spectacular Views
As we pulled up to the villa we just knew we had made the right choice for our get away from it all holiday. The views across the country and out to sea were spectacular and the villa itself was a delight. The location was perfect as we wanted peaceful seclusion, but with good restaurants, beaches, walking, etc, within easy reach.
The gardens are beautifully designed and planted and offer plenty of options for both sun and shade lovers. The pool was fab and all you can hear when lying out on your sun lounger are birds and the occasional bleat from the local goats. Lunch on the shady terrace next to the kitchen and sundowners on the sitting room balcony rapidly became much loved rituals.
We ended up spending far more time at the house than we planned simply because it was so relaxing and comfortable. But when we did venture forth we found plenty we liked. We had been concerned that by mid October there would be few restaurants open, but, in reality there were still many great places open (year round we discovered) in this part of the Island. We enjoyed a fabulous boat trip to the Blue Caves and Shipwreck Beach. The sea was still wonderfully warm and it was lovely to come down to Agios Nicolaos (the nearest small town) for a swim at the beach and a coffee or meal at one of several very good restaurants. In particular the food and small private beach at Nobelos Bio Restaurant were a real find and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We also loved La Storia at the corner of the harbour where there was always a great welcome and atmosphere, good food and plenty of helpful advice on local activities and attractions.
We had followed the owner's recommendation to stock up at the supermarket on the way up from the airport (several good supermarkets to choose from) and the small local shop in Agios Nikolaos supplied all the essentials and were happy to order meats and specific items for next day delivery when needed.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and are very happy to recommend Villa Ionis. We will definitely be back for another visit.
Prachtig mooie villa, met aandacht ingericht
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in deze villa. Het uitzicht was prachtig en er waren voldoende plekken om buiten te zitten, zowel in de zon als in de schaduw. De woning is met zorg en aandacht ingericht en is netjes en schoon. De omgeving is landelijk, maar er zijn genoeg restaurantjes en leuke stranden in de buurt
calme et confort
Cette villa a tout à fait correspondu à nos attentes : spacieuse (nous étions 6), confortable, propre, parfaitement entretenue. La vue de la terrasse est merveilleuse et le calme règne aux alentours aussi est ce un endroit formidable pour se reposer. Joan et son mari sont des personnes très discrètes et prêtes à rendre service si besoin est (notre fille arrivait avant nous aussi Joan est allée la chercher à l'aéroport, l'a amené au supermarché pour les grandes courses !). La piscine est de bonne dimension, les lits sont confortables, on peut avoir internet pour un prix raisonnable.
Un petit bémol mais qui n'a rien à voir avec la location proprement dite : la maison est loin des plages et des commerces, il faut impérativement avoir une voiture
