“relaxation and travelling solo”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

I am just back from Zakythos and I had a fantastic holiday. I am a 30 something solo traveller and I needed a break. I found Sharon extremely helpful and I had no worries at all going by myself as she told me what to expect and was a great help settling me in when I got there. I was only 5 mins from the beach and village and enjoyed some lovely mornings and afternoons at the pool with some other guests. The Villas are surrounded by olive trees and the views are amazing. I couldn't believe I was so high up yet the beach was so close. My new camera got plenty of use. :) The villa was very spacious and would definately be comfortable for a family. They were clean and comfortable and I can't think of any need that wasn't met. Breakfast on my veranda watching the sun rise in the morning, what else could you want. I loved my ten days there and I will be back there again as soon as I can.

What an amazing find, we stayed at Archontiko Village this April for a week and had the most wonderful time. We arrived with our two boys to what was a beautiful setting so quiet and peaceful; the views were out of this world. From first contact Sharon was brilliant so efficient and organised it was great to have someone to take away the stress. The villas are stunning a really clever fusion of traditional and modern decoration/furnishings with all the mod cons a real home from home which is great with kids, a definite 5 Star venue and this I can say as I have worked in the hotel industry for 15 years and Archontiko Villas are a very high class establishment. Food was brilliant and Mary was great. We had an excellent time, so much that we have just booked our flights to go back this year can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: You dont need any Sharon is so good at what she does she choose the best villa to suit your needs

Thank you so much for the amazing review. I am so humbled to receive such fantastic words. Although every review is very special to us, the fact that you were once a hotel inspector and to write a review like this, makes me so very happy and grateful. Our business is our life and our clients are our friends. We always hope that all who stay here have a fantastic relaxing holiday. Most people only have one holiday a year and with that in mind, it is my mission to ensure that they holidays that they have in Archontiko Villas is a holiday that will rejuvenate them for the following year. We are so happy that you will be here again soon with your beautiful family and look so much forward to seeing you all again. Sharon

Wow what can we say and where do we start!
My partner and I stayed at Archontiko villas for two weeks and what a stay it was. The villas were beautiful, well kept and had spectacular views of the Island, as was the pool area, which is so laid back, a great place to get a bite to eat or just have a chat with Mary, who was more than happy to help. What really made our stay special was Sharron herself, any questions we had were answered and she also provided us with information on the island, where to go, what to see and do and also we learnt so much about the Island and its history. What a place to visit, the people couldn’t be more friendly and welcoming. I’d recommend Archontiko villages to anyone travelling to Zakynthos, old, young, family or couple, it’s worth the stay!
Thanks guys, we are already booking our trip back xxx

My wife and I stayed in Archontiko Villas in September and we can only describe it as a little piece of Paradise on earth. The setting is idyllic overlooking the bay at Alykes and with the mountains in the background. The villas are excellent and extremely well maintained and have obviously been designed with client comfort in mind. The welcome from Sharon was second to none and she is a mine of information on activities on the Island. The Greek tourist board should hire her.
We mustn't forget Mary who looked after our needs by the pool. A lady and excellent cook. A return visit is a definite. Highly recommended.

We really loved this charming place! We stayed for one week in one of the villas and enjoyed the atmosphere a lot. In the villas you have all you need for a relaxing holiday (e. g. little kitchen, AC, terrace with a beautiful view on the ocean, very clean...). The service is excellent and if you need anything (information, food, drinks...) just go to Sharon or Maria! Great hospitality! Thank you!

we spent a wonderful week at Archontiko villa,the property is brilliant with eveything you would expect in normal home,it's very clean and comfortable and has good amount of privacy.
The stay at villa needs a car ,the nearst beach is Alykes 5minutes away by car.we drove to some beaches we liked Kamnia and St Nicolas,they were lovely,sandy beaches with clean water.you also need a car to go to the supermarket.we recommened that you rent a car on intrnet before you come to Zakynthos.
Sharon was very good host and looked after any needs we had .thank you .

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic week long break at this beautiful village. Accommodation in the small villas was excellent, great welcome from Sharon and excellent service all week from Mary.

The views over the bay are excellent and the quiet at the pool was just what we required.

Mary is the lady owner who serves all day at the pool bar and cooks on demand, she is a great personality and friendly hostess.

We are already thinking of returning next year.

Room Tip: all Villas have great views over the bay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
If it's a true flavour of Greece you're looking for...look no further than Archontiko Villas, where a warm welcome and true Zakynthian history awaits you. Built in 1846, Archontiko once traded as an olive oil factory, flower mill and winery. Archontiko Villas is situated in Katastari (Alykes) in the Northeast part of the island of Zakynthos (Zante), which is one of the most fascinating Greek islands in the Ionian Sea. With Warm and Clear blue waters, fantastic child-friendly beaches and Ambrosial forests and blooming plants, no wonder, the popular island or Zakynthos is also known as "Fiore di Levante" or Flower of the East. The outhouses of Archontiko were restored and converted with emphasis on its heritage. The Villas are surrounded by our traditional mansion which is still being used since 1846 as the Voutos famly home. Both the house and the outhouses are protected as a historic monument. The whole complex is a rare jewel and is open from April until end of October. It is truly a place of peace, serenity and steeped in history in which the Voutos family would like you to experience. It is an ideal holiday location for couples and families who are seeking relaxation. ... more   less
