|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Located to the far south of the island & surrounded by ancient olive terraces with views of the sea and mountainous countryside. Only a 5 minute walk to Gerakas Beach and its famous coast. A covered pergola partially shaded by olive trees & jasmine. Relax under the shade of one of the olive trees in the garden or feast using the large traditional stone built barbecue, with lighting for cool evening cooking and relaxation. The house is extremely comfortable and accessible, with a sense of simple luxury combining a traditional Greek feeling. The stone walls and beamed ceilings give a feel of oldie worldly barn type cottages of ancient Greece. Many of our guests are returning to stay year after year, some never wanting to leave! We are less than a 15 minute walk, or 5 minute drive, from the local village of Vasilikos where at least 10 tavernas, coffee bars & shops can be found on the way.
When you first arrive at Villa Karissa the 8m x 3.5 metre self cleaning pool is one of the first benefits you will notice, then the large private garden.
The villa is built with traditional stones of Zakynthos inside and out. A large veranda leading to the entrance of the villa and likewise a large balcony above, this is where you see Gerakas Peak and the Ionian sea.
The villa is tastefully furnished and we have tried to think of our staying guests every need from cooking utensils to beach towels plus many other complimentary benefits.
Just to say thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful villa. It has to be one of the best places we have ever stayed in and we had a fantastic relaxing holiday. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable with the air conditioning being especially welcome in the hot weather. The pool area is also great; it was also entertaining to watch the house martins skimming the surface of the water (I don’t know if th they were drinking or catching insects). The garden is is lovely and much bigger than we expected. The Vasilikos peninsular is also lovely and I don’t think the property could be better located. The bus service was good for getting to Zakynthos town, (although next time we would probably hire a car to get to other parts of the island). We also enjoyed walks in the immediate area as well as Gerakas beach. The tavernas were also nice and we particularly liked Niko’s. The locals are extremely friendly and helpful. When we arrived we were early, and your housekeepers allowed us to drop our luggage in whilst they finished. finished. They even offered to drive us down to the bar! There is no doubt that we will return in the future, maybe even next year.
Only a 5 minute walk to Gerakas Beach and its famous coast, stop for a
cool drink on the way in one of three bars or tavernas or buy some provisions in the local mini market. Take a 10 minute stroll down to Porto Roma where more tavernas and a mini market can be found. We are less than a 15 minute walk, or 5 minute drive, from the local village of Vasilikos where at least 10 tavernas, coffee bars & shops can be found on the way.
