We stayed here in June 2013. The setting is stunning, the pool is just lovely (with lovely comfy sunloungers). The host Sharon could not be more helpful or welcoming. Sharon's mother in law Mary is just the most amazing greek cook, I would highly highly recommend eating at the restaurant as her food is just delicious and proper authentic greek cooking cooked by a characterful greek lady Mary. Not to mention the ice cold lager, served in ice cold glasses. We stayed with our 3.5 year old and parent in law and they are soooo welcoming to children. The villas are in a beautiful setting, lovely verandas (they are spacious open plan one bedroom) we still got it to work with our daughter. And it was probably nice for my parents in law to have their own villa. It is a bit of a steep walk to the beach (fine on the way down) bit steep on the way up. So recommend a car to travel the island. Great excursions from the beach area. The beach is just lovely very safe for young children (the water soooo warm and calm). I highly recommend this place. Enjoy!
- 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
