Villa Elia is a beautiful property that was originally built as a family home – giving it the space, level of comfort and ambiance not normally found in a purpose-built holiday home. The villa stands in four acres of lovely grounds at the end of a private country lane and is not overlooked. Surrounded by lawns, flowering shrubs, pine and citrus trees, it provides a peaceful, private and secluded oasis - yet has the convenience of being only a five minute drive from the huge sandy beaches of Kalamaki and a vast selection of restaurants, tavernas and shops.

The sunny main terrace leads onto the pool terrace with its substantial sparkling pool which is serviced daily, a shady pergola and stunning views. To the side of the villa is another vine covered terrace and full size dining table and chairs - the perfect place for eating with its fabulous backdrop of the bay on one side and the harbour and Zante Town on the other. There is also a third, raised terrace in the garden with stunning sunset views over the western hills.

Inside the property is a spacious open plan living area with a large, comfortably furnished lounge, internet flat screen television with BBC, ITV etc. Netflix and Prime channels, DVD player and music system (bring your iPod as there is a hook up via the amplifier!). plus bluetooth You’ll also find some homely touches like bookshelves loaded with books, a selection of board games and a great choice of films on DVD. There’s a good wifi connection.

The farmhouse style kitchen has a table that seats six and lots of storage, plus fridge freezer, a dishwasher, full sized oven and a microwave. Elia really is a home from home, and comes fully equipped with everything you could need – including the kitchen sink! There is a vegetable garden where you can pick your own. Exceptional villa with panoramic sea views. Secluded & convenient Large pool

Welcome Pack includes bottles of chilled water, wine, lager, fruit, bread, feta, butter etc

Zakynthos is proud to be the first Marine Park protected area in the Mediterranean due to its beaches being the chosen nesting place of the caretta caretta (turtles). As a result, all development in the Park is forbidden, allowing Elia to enjoy wonderful solitude whilst at the same time benefiting from the convenience of nearby beaches and resorts.

Zakynthos, or Zante as it is more commonly known, is also referred to as the ‘Flower of the Ionian’ in recognition of the island’s exceptional beauty. The locals are renowned for their true Greek hospitality, which no doubt accounts for why so many holidaymakers return to the island time and time again.

Geographically the island is the most southern of the six Ionian Islands and is located off western mainland Greece. It has a Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and warm wet winters (making it very green and fertile).

The capital Zakynthos Town with its shops, museums, restaurants, bars and outdoor cinema, is architecturally extremely attractive and full of the influence and culture of its Italian ancestors.

Villa Elia sits at the head of what is known locally as the ‘hidden valley’ - a sparsely populated fold in the hills between the beach resorts of Kalamaki and Argassi, and a completely unspoilt area of the island. This is glorious walking country, where you can wander amongst the olive groves and pine woods, with unexpected and lovely sea views at every turn or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, you can walk the length of the valley to the sea.

The villa's enviable setting in an elevated position within Zante’s National Marine Park (rental villas within the National Park are few and far between due to recent conservation laws) gives it almost 360º of stunning panoramic sea views - across the bay in one direction, over the valley in another and towards the harbour and Kefalonia in yet another. You’re also only a five minute drive from vast soft sandy beaches, and the sophisticated shops, bars and restaurants of Zakynthos Town.

A fabulous place to holiday

By Emma Hall on 05-Sep-2021

From start to finish. we had a wonderful time. The villa had amazing views, was homely and well appointed. Nothing was too much trouble and there was a super welcome basket on our late arrival. We loved staying here, being really remote up in the olive groves, but only ten minutes from the port with its shops and restaurants. Head up the other end if the island for total remoteness and hire a little boat to explore up there. Wonderful trip!

We have just returned from Villa Elia and everything was wonderful. John, the owner, was very helpful and understanding, from when we first booked the villa to actually going as travel was rather uncertain due to Covid but it all went very smoothly. He arranged for Spiro to meet us at the airport and he showed us to the villa. He and his wife Maria are lovely and gave us lots of information. There was a nice welcome pack with lots in the fridge on our arrival. The villa is in a great location, secluded and peaceful but just a short drive to some lovely restaurants, supermarkets and beaches. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children and there was everything we could possibly have wanted in the villa. The views are amazing and the pool is a great size, bigger than average, and Spiro cleaned it every day. We had a brilliant time and were sorry we had to leave. Our thanks to John, Spiro and Maria.

The most stunning location.

By Paul Randall on 11-Sep-2019

5/5 THE most stunning location. We have rented many villas in a variety of countries but Villa Elia offered the most beautiful views. The outside space from the front drive with beautiful old olive trees afforded beautiful views over Zakynthos Town and the terrace surrounding the pool gave beautiful views towards Kalamaki and beyond. The pool was an absolute joy and the beautifully planted and large terrace and all the shady areas were all one could ask for. Inside had everything we needed and the air conditioning in the bedroom was very welcome. Villa Elias location is superb for nearby towns plus local restaurants and supermarkets for ‘provisioning’. Spiros and Maria who met us at the airport and showed us to the villa were delightful and helpful with tips and suggestions. The only downside to our week at Villa Elia was that our holiday was too short we’ll be back for much longer next time. Thank you John
