Very nice well situated villa, loved every minute of our stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa Olympian is a very nice villa well situated close to shops, tavernas, bars and supermarkets. The pool is plenty big enough and there are plenty of sunbeds. The villa has very good air conditioning in each room and a very good outside and inside dining areas. We were a party of 6 adults and everyone of us had an absolutely brilliant time and we will most certainly be returning for another stay at this lovely well looked after villa

Large, clean, spacious villa with private garden and pool - not overlooked

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was very clean and well equipped. There was plenty of room for all of us (7 adults) and the outdoor area was perfect for relaxing and cooling down in the pool.

The owner was very timely in responding to questions and keen to make our stay perfect.

Small issue with the wifi/tv but that maybe due to some unfortunate stormy weather we had as was fine the rest of the time.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and the villa met all of our requirements and more.

I would definitely recommend this villa for a great self catering holiday experience.

Had a great time - we will be back.

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was as described by the owners, WiFi keeping the teenagers happy, Air Conditioning keeping everyone happy, very crisp and clean, it's on an incline which we do recommend taking a torch out in the evenings for returning in the dark. Plenty of outside space, sun beds, tables and sun shades. The pool is positioned perfect if you have young children as we did, all the sun beds face the pool everyone can help keep them safe. Big table outside for dining on. If you're not a sun worshiper (like me) you can follow the shade all the way around the Villa.

Tsilivi has plenty to offer for everyone. We can recommend the Water Park which is a very short walk on the road with lots of fun to be had, if you go after 2.30 it's half price. The Restaurants are all very family friendly our favourites were M-eating, Romerio's and Wine & Roses. The Bar's are all good too our favourite was My Place. Our son loved the kid's quad bikes area next to M-eating and the crazy golf. The Bakery is well worth the walk for delightful treats. We didn't venture too far, we had a very relaxing holiday and attended a friends Wedding.

A lovely villa close to the shops & restaurants of Tsilivi

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Olympian for 1 week at the end of July 2016 with our daughter & 3 grandchildren ages 8, 15 & 18. The villa was well equipped, the very efficient air con was wonderful and all rooms were tastefully decorated. We mistakenly thought that pool towels (not beach towels) would be provided but the owner was very quick to put that right. The pool was smaller than expected but as we were a small group with no long distance swimmers, it was fine. There is a steep climb at the end of the walk up to the villa from the main road which wasn't a problem for us but may be for others. Overall, we loved the villa and would highly recommend it.

Lovely big villa within walking distance of the centre of Tsilivi

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 adults and 2 children but booked this villa as we initially expected to be 5 adults and 3 children. The villa would easily have accommodated the 8 of us. The children could have had a room each but instead both wanted the room in the eaves at the top of the villa.

The villa is lovely and spacious and well equipped. We were very impressed with the amount of kitchen / cooking utensils provided which enabled us to BBQ several times rather than having to eat out every night. The villa is within easy walking distance of the restaurants, bars and beach of Tsilivi when you do fancy a day / night out.

The pool area is great with plenty of sunbeds provided and big enough for children to play about in. It was great for the children to be able to go into the pool whenever they wanted rather than the restrictions on evening swimming usually imposed by hotels.

This was my first experience of using Owners Direct and I was a little nervous but the owner was brilliant, emailing and calling and responding to questions. I also really appreciated the fact that we already had the keys when we left the UK. There is a Greek couple who live nearby and look after the villa for the owner. We saw them a couple of times when they came to clean the pool and check everything was ok but fortunately did not have any reason to trouble them during our stay.

I would recommend hiring a car to get out and about and see more of the Island or if travelling with anyone unable to walk too well as the villa is at the top of quite a steep hill.

If I were to go back to Tsilivi, I would certainly aim to stay at the villa again. We loved the privacy of having our own villa and will certainly consider this option again for future holidays. I would certainly recommend Villa Olympian to anyone visiting Tsilivi.

Beautiful villa, excellent location, perfect for wedding parties

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked villa olympian to stay in as we were getting married in Tsilivi, and we had also planned a family holiday. The villa is beautiful, it is spotlessly clean, comfortable, comes with air con in every room, which is a must especially with kiddies. It has its own little pool, again great for kiddies and comfortably sleeps 10 people. The villa also has WiFi sky TV and has a washing machine, iron, hairdryer and dishwasher, which makes life so much easier with a large group of people staying.

BBQ and sunbeds also available outside so no early starts to put your towel down.It was great for all the family to be together and to help me prepare for the wedding and have somewhere to all get ready on the big day.

The location is also amazing Tsilivi has something for everyone, great food, great people and fantastic entertainment. Highly recommended I loved my time there.

The owner was also easy to deal with and made hassle free arrangements to collect keys etc. He also arranged for cleaners to change linen and towels regularly and the pool was maintained also. Fantastic place thanks for a great holiday.

Tsilivi's prime attraction is its mile-long bay of golden sand, which shelves gradually to the sea, making it a safe environment for children to have fun in the sun. Considered one of the best beaches on the island, it deservedly boasts a Blue Flag of Cleanliness award. During the day, there is a good selection of water sports and a crazy golf course. At night, the friendly music bars, restaurants and local tavernas make it one of the island's hotspots for lively entertainment.


Villa Olympian is situated in the pretty resort of Tsilivi. Situated on the north east coast of Zante, with it's citrus groves and stunning views over the Ionian Sea, Tsilivi is only 9km from the airport and 5km from the Island’s capital, Zakynthos Town.


Zakynthos Town, with its colourful, Italian-style houses, is only a 10 minute taxi ride away. The views from the Venetian fortress above the town are breathtaking, while boat trips from the busy harbour visit some amazing locations, such as the mysterious shipwreck at smugglers cove or the uninhabited island of Marathonissi, one of the most important nesting sites for loggerhead turtles in Europe. Car hire is available from the resort.
