“Unique, quiet location with amazing views”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed here with some friends in the middle of September for a weekend get away, the place is well maintained with beautiful sea views. What's great about the location is that it is quite isolated from other properties, so has a very 'private' feel.

You will need a car, but this adds to the experience as it is still rustic in that part of the island (which I love). Secret beaches and great restaurants in the area really add to the whole experience (and this was the first time I have ever been to Greece)

“As good as it looks”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2013

Have to say the villa is as good as it looks on the photos. It's the perfect combination of isolation and easy access to beaches, restaurants and bars. Every sunset is phenomenal too.

“Blissful, relaxing, family holiday”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

A beautiful villa in a stunning location. We had days out exploring the island driving to quiet coves to swim and having long lunches in tavernas and also very lazy days reading and relaxing on the verandah looking at the view.
Our teenagers loved the snorkeling, visiting the Blue Caves and the view of Ship Wreck Bay.
The sunsets are just spectacular.
The villa itself had all we needed and was clean and well furnished.
We had been concerned about how hot it would be in August without air con but because of the elevation of the property this wasn't a problem.

“Quite simply stunning”
Reviewed January 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2013

Get yourself a glass of wine, sit on the large veranda and take in that view.
You will need a car, but from this secluded location you can explore and discover exquisite beaches and bars. Just 10 minutes away, Agios Nikolaos is an absolute must.

“A very special place to stay”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2013

If Alastair Sawday's covered Greece, then I'm sure that Stravatha would be listed as a special place to stay.

What sets the house apart is its literally breathtaking location. I could have spent pretty much the whole week lounging on the patio soaking in the views!

The house has been built with huge care and loving attention to detail; natural materials are combined with modern comforts.

I can't wait to go back.

“Peaceful seclusion”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2013

If you are after nightclubs or noisy bars this isn't the place for you. If you want peace and quiet with stunning views and a taste of the quieter part of Zakynthos then we would definitely recommend staying here. The house is tastefully decorated, well equipped and is located on its own with fantastic views over to Kefalonia with a guaranteed sunset view from the balcony each evening. There is no pool but there are plenty of beaches and secluded coves nearby to explore. There is also a wide variety of local tavernas within a short drive. You will need a car. Enjoy.

“Incredible panoramic views and gorgeous sunsets.”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2013

A truely amazing place on the North coast of Zakynthos.
The villa sits on a hilltop overlooking the Ionian sea with Kethalonia in the distance. In my opinion, the house has been cleverly constructed as it sits very sympathetically in it's surroundings. Its numerous terraces ensure that the building almost merges into the hillside. Internally the house provides everything you might need, is comfortable and relaxing and has been tastefully decorated.
Stravatha, however, is all about the view. What must be very rare, if not unique, is that in the panorama overlooking Kephalonia there is hardly any sign of 'other people' giving the impression that you have the island to yourself.
A car would be pretty much essential in order to explore the coves and tavernas but you could easily walk into the hills around the house returning to Stravatha for another wonderful evening.
Highly recommended.
